Green Meme for Mel.

Yup, I'm still here - for now. Of course that's apt to change at any moment. I just haven't been blogging, or even commenting. I feel a lot like Ey-ore from Pooh corner. I just haven't had much to say, that's worth saying. However, my friend Mel has a meme that seems safe enough for me to do, so here goes . . .

1. What is your current obsession?
Right now, my current obsession is survival. Feeding my family on a daily basis, keeping a roof over our heads, and the utilities on. (at least the important ones) There just isn't room inside my head for anything else right now.
2. What’s a good coffee place?
Don't really know, I don't drink coffee. I suppose I'd have to go with any place that serves diet coke.
3. Who was the last person that you hugged?
Probably my husband, or one of my kids, or it could have been one of my dogs . . . It's hard to say, I tend to get them all mixed up. Wait, I just remembered, it was Hailey, one of Heather's friends that she brings home from school with her almost every day.
4. Do you nap a lot?
I have been lately, but I don't enjoy it.
5. Tonight, what’s for dinner?
Um . . . tonight we have a choice of either left overs, or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, because that's all there is.
6. What was the last thing that you bought?
Since I haven't seen money in so long, that's a tough one. I have to really think back. I honestly can't remember. I suppose a good guess would be . . . a diet coke?
7. What is your favorite weather?
I'm sort of a nature freak, so I like all kinds of weather, so long as it doesn't interfere with my plans. It's been a long time since I have seen a good lightening show.
8. Tell us something about one blogger who you think will play this week?
Cat might try this - she is a wonderfully honest person with a real talent for writting.
9. If you were given a free house that was full furnished, where in the world would you like it to be? I'd like it to be some where woodsy, without alot of neighbors, and lots of space for my dogs and kids to run and play.
10. Name three things that you could not live without?
Lately, I am discovering that there are a lot of things a person can live without. I guess it would have to be a "non- thing", like my family, my health, and my faith.
11. What would you like in your hands right now?
A winning lottery ticket.
12. What’s one of your guilty pleasures?
I guess it would be my habit of taking in strays. I can't afford it, I'm not set up for it, and it usually makes my life extreamely complicated, but I just can't seem to turn anyone away.
13. What would you change or eliminate about yourself?
I'd like to have wisdom, and the ability to follow it through.
14. As a child, what type of career did you want?
When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be a vet. When I got older, I discovered my love for art and I wanted to be an artist of some kind. For a long time, I wanted to attend Parson's School of Design and become a fashion designer.
15. What are you missing right now?
Right now? My husband. He left to go do some work for one of Nick's friends about 4 hours ago and he still isn't home. This is NOT good news.
16. What are you currently reading?
Lately, the only thing that I've had time to read is my Al-anon literature, but I'd really like to get back to my "Women who run with the Wolves" book. Or even better, totally lose my self in a fantasy novel.
17. What do you fear the most?
I suppose I fear abandonment the most of all. What would I do without the people I love?
18. What’s the best movie that you’ve seen recently? The last movie that I saw was Twilight, I loved the book, but I think the movie could have been better. What comes to mind as far as good movies is . . . I recently bought a copy of "The Green Mile" to watch again - That was good. I also blew the dust off my VHS player and watched my copy of "Interview with the Vampire." That's a good one too. My favorite movie is "Stealing Heaven."
19. What's your favorite book from the past year?
The Twilight series.

Well, my hubby just got home. All is well. I need to go rustle up some grub for him.

Love ya,
Susan

I've missed you. I haven't seen 'stealing heaven' but I will look out for it...
yeah, I've been watching the Twilight movie and it just isn't as wonderful as it could have been, some parts almost got there but...

I watched Interview with the Vampire the other week too! It's kinda excellent isn't it? I love Louie, poor Louie.

Ok, good to see you back on here. My kids would love peanut butter and honey sandwiches for dinner!!

take care, love mel xxx
