TMI – 5-16 -on Wednesday

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.  🙂

  1. I particularly love your answer to number 4. I have always tended towards the wandering, learning to have that absolute focus in my thirties has been interesting

    • Hi, Roz,

      Thanks – they’re fun to write too! And I don’t know, it might be nice to have the single focus drive – and we wouldn’t be who we are either! Hugs…


  3. Hi Olivia,
    This was fun but your answer about trading places with someone cracked me up. Maybe I’m feeling a bit evil today. I might be willing to trade places with my boss for a day just to give him a taste of his management style!

    • Thanks, Amy – I’m glad it amused you! You’re right though, trading places with a difficult boss might be fun. And that way you could tell him exactly how to do everything!! lol.
