1. Who was your favorite cartoon character as a child?
I don’t remember a favorite cartoon character! I’m sure I had one, just don’t remember it. I do remember loving to watch Captain Kangaroo when I was little, and the Mickey Mouse club as I got a bit older. The Rifleman was a favorite.
2. What makes you cry?
All kinds of things. Sad things, happy things, and when I get real angry, sometimes I cry. Although – I’m more likely to just tear up these days if I’m sad or happy. I was more likely to out-and-out sob or ugly cry when i was younger.
3. What similarity between you and your significant other do you love?
MP and I both have a strong love of family and want to create a home where people feel welcome – of course, sharing the home with my daughter and grands will be different than just being open, but I deeply appreciate his willingness to do that. And overall, it’s important to both of us that our house is a place of warmth and non-judgmental love and caring.
4. What characteristic do you admire in others that you feel you are lacking?
Oh, the ability to focus single-mindedly on one path. Those people who knew when they were little that they wanted to be a doctor, and now they are. They decide to learn to play guitar, and they take lessons and practice and just do it. I’m a wanderer – I go from here to there and back and forth and gather information and skills and experience and sometimes end up where I didn’t plan to be, but it’s still just right for me. So I don’t want to be those single focus folks, but I really admire that.
5. If you could eliminate one thing from your daily schedule, what would it be?
Hmmm. From my daily schedule. My schedule is pretty much self-driven, I don’t know what I’d eliminate. Nope, can’t think of a thing.
Bonus: You can trade places with one person for a day, who would it be?
More hmmmm. I don’t think I want to trade places with anyone, not even for a day. Besides, if i traded places with someone, would they run my life that day? I can’t imagine letting that happen. Who knows what kind of mess I’d come back to. No, thanks. 🙂
