Welcome to the 2015 Share Your World challenge!  I am excited to get started on this one right at week 1.

How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?

I just never ever, I mean EVER answer them!  Sometimes they are persistent for awhile but they stop.  It will be quiet for a few weeks and then they try again.  And if you wonder, YES we are on the Do Not Call list!  Imagine if we weren’t!  I wish political calls could be added to that!  The phone rang off the hook last election cycle.

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Hopefully, writing. Cooking and baking come naturally to me. Empathy comes naturally to me….although, I guess that isn’t actually, naturally ‘doing’ something. Is it? I am a natural at figuring things out. For example: I wanted to make a t-shirt quilt for a benefit and had no clue. I think it turned out pretty good for not knowing what I was doing! I had to figure out how to do a second one, too as the shirts were not uniform in size.


My son just reminded me that I am a natural worrier!  He is more than right!

How often do you get a haircut? 

I get a small trim every 7-8 weeks because I am there for other things!  (What, you thought this color was natural?) When I was younger, my mom cut my hair short.  I disliked it greatly. In 6th grade I started growing my hair and didn’t get it cut again for YEARS.  It was the same way after I lost it all during treatment.  Once it started growing, I let it for awhile. Because I COULD!

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Traveling! Anywhere… LOVE New York City.  LOVE traveling to places I have never been before. Nothing more fun than that! I love experiencing places new to me, shops, restaurants, and people!


Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week we celebrated our 29th anniversary, as you know.  I am grateful that we are both healthy and here to celebrate it!

I am looking forward to staying inside and keeping warm out of the below zero temperatures and winter storm we are expecting!
