Get to know me challenge

Well, That’s What Anxious Mom Said posted her “Get to know me challenge” and as expected, challenged all her followers (instead of picking three) to do the same. How can I ignore that? So, here you go, in all it’s semi-anonymous glory.

      1. I wish I could have it a lot less often, but it’s usually the most affordable option and when I’ve been out all day, the last thing I want to do is even heat up a can of soup…and I’m out of soup anyway, dang it.

  3. I may miss a couple but I will try:
    1. Named for my grandmothers
    2. Ham is really the only sandwich meat I like.
    3. I was married for 10 years, divorced in 1992. It was last relationship and the longest.
    4. No tonsils.
    5. Definitely no bungee jumping – I am totally in agreement with you about that rubber band!
    6. I don’t believe in tie shoes.
    7. The very best ice cream flavor ever invented is Salted Caramel.
    8. When I first meet someone I first notice how they present themselves and then I look for how they treat other people.
    9. After a great deal of internal debate……
    10. No pants today, I am wearing a gray dress.
    11. Since I had breakfast last, it was an orange dreamsicle breakfast roll.
    12. I think I would like to be a deep purple crayon.

    17. Favorite Food: Hamburgers (no cheese or onions), steak, sweet potato fries, lobster & grits, pizza

    19. Last movie was some random documentary that my daughter made me watch. I read books but I am really not much of a movie person.
    20. Of course, my favorite holiday is Christmas because of its meaning and because of family and the many years of memories I have that surround it.
    21. Wine/beer. I never actually cultivated a taste for most beer.
    22. Sunday is my favorite day. Although I should go to church every Sunday, it is the only day of the week that I have completely to myself ….. Usually. It is a quiet day and a day when I don’t have to interact with people. I can recharge my batteries.
