I say this because I don't think I left any comments last week. I was just so tired and my brain wasn't working. My apologies.
- When it's time to cut the grass (mow the lawn), who does it?
Let me preface this by telling you a little story. When I went to the allergist a few years back to get tested, after they'd poked the stuff into my back and the proscribed time had elapsed, the allergist came in to check my results. As soon as he opened the door, he laughed and said, "I'll bet you can tell when someone is mowing the grass!" My response: "Within a 10 mile radius" Yes, I'm very, very allergic to grass, and if I try to mow, my eyes swell and I gasp for breath for days afterward. Heck, that happens even when someone else mows. In fact, my eyes are telling me that someone, somewhere has mowed sometime today. Needless to say, my cousin James and my son Cody usually mow the grass, but what with Cody grown and gone now, James mostly does it by himself. I'd love to help, but the need to keep breathing is stronger than my desire to mow.
- If someone gave you $500 dollars and you could not spend it on yourself, who would you spend it on?
Does paying bills count as spending it on myself? Hmm, in that case, I'd send it to Cody. Poor college students always seem to need money.
- Have you ever taken a blogging break or considered one?
I consider taking a blogging break all the time. It's what happens when nobody reads your blog. It's easy to get discouraged when you feel like you're talking to empty air. In reality, I've never taken more than 3 or 4 days off at a time. I feel like if I stop, I'll never start again.
- Are you bothered by spring allergies or hay fever? If not spring, any other time of the year?
Yes, yes, and yes! I was laughing at the Claritin commercial the other day. The line that says to continue to take Claritin as long as your triggers remain. Yeah, I take it all year round. My list is long, sweetheart.
- What's new with you?
Well, I've got a couple of different plants in my flower beds this year. That's about it. Everything else is same old same old.
I hope you enjoyed our little chat this week. Thanks for stopping by. See you next Tuesday.
