Summertime and the Living is Busy

After spending my spring being freaked out about my surgery and then recovering from my surgery I am trying to cram in as much of summer as I can. Unfortunately I can never think of anything to write about after all the funning*.

So, I was delighted to be tagged by the ever-lovely Nicole, who blogs at Girl In a Boy House. We have recently discovered we live quite close to one another and our boys play together REALLY well. It's awesome. As is having something to blog about.

So, for your reading pleasure,

What experience has shaped you the most and why?

I would have to say being born into a household of faith. My faith was introduced to me at a very early age and it has set the course for most of my life. I know I would be quite a different person if I had been raised with a different belief set.

if you had a whole day with no commitment what would you do?

That just described the entire second half of May. And it really kind of sucked. Now mind you, I was recovering from having my rib cage cracked open and was on all kinds of narcotics so that may have something to do with my ambivalence, but I have discovered I do LOVE being productive. This may also have something to do with my upbringing.

What food or drink could you never give up?

Oh heavens. Do not ask a pseudo-foodie this question. Now I am hungry thinking about all my favorite things. Chocolate and cheese spring to mind but so does asparagus, steak and a Tim Horton's Iced Capp. I am also rather partial to popcorn, sweet peppers, butter, fresh bread and sour cream. And now I will stop.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?

Ever since reading Heidi in the second grade I have had a desire to see Switzerland. Because we are both so tight the closest I'll ever get is a travel film, but still, I'd love to see the Alps for myself.

Who do you have a crush on?

I am really a lousy girl in the aspect. My friends will discuss some "hot" actor and I am usually all "meh". Seriously. Matthew McConaughey. Meh. George Clooney. Double meh. Justin Beiber? Ew. I'm old enough to be his MOTHER.

I love my husband and think he is a hottie, but beyond that, there aren't many that I might want for my imaginary boyfriend. Which I guess is a good thing.

If you were the leader of the country what would you do?

Move us all about 500 miles south. Sweet tea and socialized medicine. Now that's perfection.

Give me one savoury recipe that doesn't include cheese.

Hummus. Tzatziki. Baba Ganoush. Now I seriously need a pita.

What did you think you were going to be when you grew up?

A teacher. So I became a teacher. It may have been a childhood dream but it was not a dream come true. When I go back to work I will be doing anything but teaching. It's a LONG story.

If you could spend just one day in the body of someone else who would it be?
Anyone over 5'5". Id like to be able to reach my top cupboards without jumping on the counters at least once in my life.

What character trait inspires you the most?

People who are easy going and not quickly ruffled. The complete opposite of me.

Thank-you Nicole for the brain-wave. We now return you to your regularly scheduled summer funning.

*I am aware that funning is not a word. It really ought to be.

I was JUST thinking this morning that you hadn't blogged for a while! Glad you did the meme!

It's great to read your blog again. I missed it. Like Nicole, I was wandering. So glad that you were 'funning'.
Love your answers and agree with nearly all of them. Have to say that I do not want to be moved 500 miles south, especially when 150 miles would do. I can live without the sweet tea but not without the Java Chip.
As to the second point of difference, it's about the dream. I think you are a fabulous teacher with your two boys.
Glad you're back writing!
