I was reading Pseudo's post today and thought I'd play along! She got it from Laura at Under The Sheets. So I'm going to link up with her post!
The Five Questions Are:
1) What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Coffee definitely gets me out of bed. I don't need to set an alarm since I don't have to be at work until 11am. I sleep with my TV on (a habit I got into when my husband left and I wasn't sleeping well at all.) I usually wake up to Charmed. I generally leave TNT on... usually good stuff to drift back to sleep with.
2) What scares you and how often do you think about it?
I used to be afraid of dying and leaving my kids. Of course, I still don't want that, but they are mostly grown and on their own, so I don't worry in that respect. I worry about John and his recurring bouts of cancer. We just found each other less than 3 years ago and I don't want him to die. He promised me 30 years with an option to renew. Plus, he owes me a trip to Alaska!
I worry about what I will live on as I get older. I have no retirement money set aside.
3) How important is making a home to you? For example do you like a home to meditate in, cook good food or have people over?
When my family was all together, my home was my most important thing. We had home-cooked dinner at least 5 nights a week and ate as a family. My ex-husband destroyed all that when he left. I rarely cook any more. My daughter, Gina is out of college, in a home of her own and making a good life for herself. My son, Tim is in his 3rd year of college, living off campus in a house with 3 other guys. He plans to go to grad school and who knows where that will be. The chances of him moving back here are slim. My youngest daughter, Dani is graduating high school this year and will be going to school in western PA. She's rarely home when I am. I'm not sure what the next 4 years will bring, in regards to Dani.
So, for now, my home is a place where I can relax, where my kids are always welcome to come to. I'd like for it to be a place where John and I can live together peacefully, but the animosity between him and my youngest make that impossible. So, for now, we live separately. I hate to say it but I'm biding my time until we can make that happen. My biggest wish is they'd at least tolerate each other for my sake.
4) Where in the world would you like to travel to next?
Ah, so many places! I want to cruise to Alaska and tour the interior! I want to go to Hawaii, and Ireland and Greece and the Caribbean and the western US. I'd love to travel to as many of our states as possible. John wants to travel the West via train, through the Rockies and the Grand Canyon. I want to go to Canada. I'm not a big fan of seeing the Middle East. I think I' d like to see more of Europe. I'm also not sure of Asia.
5) (Just for fun...) *What's your favorite Anti Aging Skin Product?
Oh, I have all kinds of products. I use Oil of Olay. I have Clinique stuff and Neutrogena stuff. My daughter works part-time at Ulta and she hooks me up with stuff every now and then. (I often forget to use the night time creams)
