Getting to know me…..
I copied this from another blog, and think it is really fun. Copy it and fill in the answers or add your own!! This is a great way for us to get to know each other! (Thanks, Jane!)
Where is your cell phone? On the kitchen counter. I just got my 9am SparkPeople Coaching reminder
Spouse? My wonderful husband of 15.33333 years, also named Steve
Your hair? Short, medium brown with just a few gray hairs for “highlights”
Your Mother? Joan, turning 81 on September 15. Suffers from depression and is a challenge to be around.
Your Father? Richard (Dick), 84. One of the most outgoing people I’ve ever known. He can talk to a stranger for hours. I’m a blend of both of my parents personalities, but the qualities like my dad’s that are positive definitely outweigh the negative aspects of my mom that I’ve inherited.
Your favorite thing? My positive outlook on life, and spending time with good friends.
Favorite drink? Right now – hot tea
What room are you in? The breakfast room, where my laptop usually is
Your hobby? Sparking. Health and fitness, blogging too.
Your fear? Heights, really bad.
Where do you want to be in 6 years? The healthiest, fittest 64 year old I can be.
Where were you last night? At our friend Bill’s for dinner and to watch the Greg Louganis documentary.
Something that you aren't? Unintelligent. Not to brag, but I used to be a member of Mensa. Terrible, snobby organization. It reminds me of the Groucho Marx quote: “I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members.”
Muffins? I would love to have one of Jane’s awesome bran muffins. I love muffins, but they are a no-no. (Hello? You're really just cake!)
Wish list item? A cure for diabetes (and understanding and enlightenment for those who suffer from it)
Last thing you did? Ate breakfast, my favorite meal of the day
What are you wearing? T-shirt and basketball shorts (my current PJs)
Your pets? Stella, the 2-year-old black Chihuahua, is in my lap. Sherman, the 11-year-old Chihuahua, who is in his cave under the bed upstairs.
Friends? Yes, they are a blessing every day
Your life? Better than ever.
Your mood? Full of joy and gratitude
Missing someone? No, thankfully.
Pet Peeve? Anything that triggers my OCD, like a badly folded T-shirt or the curly cord on a telephone that is twisted.
Drinking? Trying to keep to just the weekends, a glass of wine or my favorite bourbon.
Your car? 2010 Black Toyota Prius IV.
Something you're not wearing? Any of the clothes that are hanging in my closet. I’m also not wearing my birthstone ring because it no longer fits on my right hand after my accident. I need to get it resized.
Your favorite store? Trader Joe’s
Your favorite color? Yellow (orange is a close second)
When is the last time you cried? At my Uncle Don’s celebration of life service, listening to wonderful stories of our family.
Where do you go over and over? I guess I’d have to say Work, since I go there most days, but then I always go back home.
Favorite place to eat? Home
Favorite place I'd like to be right now? Other than here? Probably San Francisco. I lived there for 18 years, and to me, it’s still “home” – although where we are right now in Clearlake is going to overtake it in 3… 2…. 1……..
