Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?

I keep paper money in my wallet for this and that, although I do most of my shopping with credit cards. BUT – and this is a big but (“and I cannot lie…” bwahahaha!!) – my paper money is always organized sequentially. I can’t even imagine the brain implosion that would occur if those bills were all jumbled up in there. Can people even live like that?

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

I’m more comfortable doing nothing than I used to be. There was a time when this would be a solid no. Staying busy-busy-busy was the key to staying sane-sane-sane. Now it’s more like a yeah, I’m cool with doing nothing, but “nothing” usually involves music or a book or coloring. I still struggle with absolute empty space.

What is your greatest strength?


What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Listening to the kids hang out with their friends over the weekend. It seems like there’s so much stress in our lives right now – hearing lighthearted laughter float up the stairs while the four of them played pool was like music to my ears.
