1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
I have never forgotten either child in a store....probably because any store I am in with them, one or both of them is, ahem, probably raising my blood pressure about something! I will admit that I have come pretty close to forgetting I have to pick up my older daughter from something - but never to the extent of being more than 5 minutes past time. When the kids were little - like, strapped-into-the-baby-carrier-little, I would sometimes as I drove somewhere have a minor panic attack that I had forgotten them...not a great feeling. And come to think of it, I think I had a dream recently where I went somewhere and completely left the house without them. One of those dreams where you wake up and feel really unsettled the rest of the day!
2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
Wow, I really have to think back on this one. I went to an all-girls high school (had a big stone wall around it, not kidding), so dating wasn't something that started happening as soon I hit the entrance doors, the first day! Ummmm....honestly, I think the first date I had was probably a high school dance - Homecoming or something - with a guy who went to an all-boys high school.
I do remember the date I was on with boyfriend-now-husband, when I just suddenly knew we were going to get married, that he was The One....we were in a Pizza Hut, sitting there waiting for our pizza. Pretty romantic, eh?
3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)
Falling down the stairs! Not sure why, as I've never yet taken a tumble down any stairs.
4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
Lately, I've been causing it. It's not a great feeling, but it involved things that had been bugging me for quite some time and I could not let it go one second longer. It sucked, and confronting things did not completely resolve the issue, but I'm still glad I did it!
5. Wood floors or carpet?
Wood in the dining room and entry way. Carpet everywhere else except kitchen and bathroom. I think wood flooring is definitely easier to keep clean, but carpeting (and I mean wall-to-wall, not throw rugs which just make me trip!) is much more 'cozy'.
