What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? 

This will have to wait, but I’d love to take a writer’s sabbatical.  Dedicate a block of time solely to writing and see where it takes me.  That would be amazing.

How often do you get a haircut?

I go every five weeks now, mostly for the color.  But when I go my hairdresser trims the split ends off so I guess that counts.

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search or numeric puzzles?

So funny!  I’ve gone through stages when I’ve been obsessed with the first three, but I’ve never been drawn into numeric puzzles.  If I were to pick one I’d go with word search.  I try to explain to kids what a valuable skill this is – being able to scan blocks of print for letter combinations or patterns – but they don’t seem impressed.

How many cities have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.

Childhood:  Philippines, Hawaii, Virginia (Fairfax), New Jersey, Virginia (Virginia Beach), Massachusetts (Cohasset).

College:  Virginia (Charlottesville), Massachusetts (Scituate).

Adult:  Virginia (Burnt Chimney), Missouri, North Carolina (Burlington), North Carolina (Graham).

An even dozen cities since birth.  Cool.

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

We celebrated kids over the weekend.  Friday Bear picked her restaurant for a birthday dinner (holla, Texas Roadhouse) then opened her presents that evening.  Saturday we hosted the family dinner for her.  BrightSide made his dad’s turkey (um, YUM) and Aunt Bee rocked the cake again which is pretty impressive considering Bear asked for a tree.  I swear, sometimes I think they throw stuff at my sister just to pull a nutty.  Then on Sunday evening T-man had his confirmation class cookout to celebrate the end of their year’s work together.

This week looks much slower, so I’m looking forward to taking a breath.  I need to get my feet under me before we hit the end of the school year, but the calendar doesn’t look like I’ll be sprinting headlong toward the weekend.  I’m also looking forward to relaxing a bit over Memorial Day weekend.
