13. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?
Nerd moment: Is magic/super natural real?
But then I get thinking, would I really want to take away the mystery of it all? So instead, I’ll settle for next weeks Lotto numbers.
14. Is there something that you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?
Short term I’ve been wanting to go back to BC for a couple years now but haven’t because once you add up 3-roundtrip tickets it starts getting a little pricey! Long term I’ve always wanted to start my own organic, self-sustainable farm, again budget and education play a role in the reasons why I haven’t.
15. What is the greatest accomplishment of your life?
Hands down my daughter. I haven’t made any scientific break-throughs, or helped raise millions of dollars for cancer but I have done my best to give my daughter the best start I can and I’m so proud of the rambunctious, vibrant, outgoing little girl that she is.
16. What do you value most in a friendship?
I value honesty the most, as with all of my relationships. Some friends I will literally see once or twice a year, others we may have opposing life styles or morals but we connect in other areas of life, but when it comes down to it we are always there to support each other and need offer only our honesty.
17. What is your most treasured memory?
My most treasured memory … my daughter laughing as a baby. She was always so happy and one day all I was doing was jiggling her tummy on the top of the change table and she was laughing, omgosh she was laughing. It was such a happy moment just sharing in her bliss.
18. What is your most terrible memory?
My break up with my ex. What is probably the most heart wrenching moment in anyone’s life, breaking up with ‘The Ex’, was only made worse by being drama-filled, and messy. I would never want to relive the separation of someone so vital to you.
19. If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are now living? Why?
I would move in with my Mom to save as much as I could to start setting up for my daughter’s future. She’s already got a bit of a nest egg but at 6 years old, it’s not nearly enough to last her the rest of her life.
20. What does friendship mean to you?
Friendship means having someone to be there for you; for the good, the bad, and the needed advice. Who you can be yourself around and have a blast!
21. What roles do love and affection play in your life?
They play an everyday role. There is not a single minute of the day where I’m not thinking of Miss. B or Scott. They are vital to who I am as a person and I love showing them how much I adore them every single chance I get!
22. Alternate sharing something you consider a positive characteristic of your partner. Share a total of five items.
I was going to try and make this question about the readers as well, but let’s face it, I can never say enough about Scott!
1. He is proactive; He is always doing something productive and even if it means a little tough love he always gets me moving with him!
2. He finds time away from electronics; We regularly play board games, he’ll ignore his phone, tell me to put the ipad down, or turn off the tv and go for a walk together.
3. He is OCD; some people may hate this, I’ve actually come to adore it. I feel so guilty if he cleans up when he comes over that it encourages me to keep on top of the household chores. It’s been a great influence and helps keep me organized!
4. He tolerates (and reciprocates!) my endless affections! I have a very big personal-bubble with acquaintances and people I don’t know, but he found out the hard way that once comfortable with him he had acquired a leech! The best feeling in the world is being able to hold his hand while running errands, or having him lean in and give me a kiss while we’re watching tv at the end of the day.
5. This is the big one. Despite everything else, the thing that I love most about Scott is that he takes the time to try and understand me. He might now always succeed (can’t blame the poor boy) but he always tries no matter what. And if I don’t understand he’ll always be right there beside me to explain it.
23. How close and warm is your family? Do you feel your childhood was happier than most other people’s?
I think my childhood was about average happiness just in different ways; we were a pretty close family that faced a lot of changes over the years that both brought us together & stressed our relationships.
24. How do you feel about your relationship with your mother?
Surprisingly good. I was a very free-spirited teen and it took a while for us to come to terms with each other; for her that I had grown up, and for me that she only did what she thought was best not necessarily for the purpose of being controlling. It took us a while, but we finally have a pretty positive relationship!
