1. Who are you?
I'm just some woman who happened to have her life turned upside-down about three years ago and thankfully survived with the help of many things (this blog included) and I'm off to a good start on the new and improved chapters in my life.

I hate tomatoes

You mean I'm supposed to actually DO things besides memes? Well I'll be damned!
4. List your classes in school from the ones you like the most to the ones you like the least (or if you are out of school, think of the classes you did like and didn't like at the time).

Starting the process of getting a certain someone across the pond to live with me.

I just passed my mid 30's and am rolling headlong into the big 4-0
8. Are you more child-like or childish?
Child-like I guess since I still love toys, games and cartoons.
9. What is the last thing you said out loud?
I just yelled, "Hello, are you awake?!" to my mom who is in the other room, and I heard a snore in response, so I guess that basically answered my question.
10. What song comes closest to how you feel about your life right now?
All I hear is silence at the moment.

I took Taekwondo in gym class in high school and got to the Orange belt level when the classes stopped and we moved to "studying" other types of activities.
12. Does your life tend to get better or worse or does it just stay the same?
It does all the above
13. Does time really heal all wounds?
Yes but the bigger the wound the slower the time goes, and it stands still sometimes too.
14. How do you handle a rainy day?
Well I just stick out my chin and grin and say..... THE SUN WILL COME OUT TOMORROW! Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, they'll be sun! Tomorrow, Tomorrow I love ya tomorrow! You're only a day a waaaayyyy!
15. Which is worse...losing your luggage or having to sort out tangled holiday lights?
Luggage is far worse because I can easily run out to a nearby store to replace the tangled holiday lights fairly inexpensively. Luggage is not so easily replaceable especially when its packed with tons of souvenirs.

My relationship with my mom is groovy now that I'm an adult and not giving her so much grief.

Yes, and despite that, I STILL manage to trip and fall over things! Hmm, maybe I should stop paying attention to everything.

Books made into movies are never as good as the original book, and neither are second, third, fourth etc. installments of the same movie. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

For the longest time I wanted to be a "baby doctor."

I appreciate giving unless I'm tapped out and require some taking to replenish my giving abilities.

Going through a divorce was my worst.
