What’s the scariest thing that’s ever been in your yard? I hate crickets and grasshoppers, and big, hairy spiders – they freak me out. I’ve dealt with all sorts of rodents, insects, and a few snakes in the lawns I mowed as a teenager. The more you interact with the less savory aspects of nature, the more you get used to them. Not too much bothers me these days.
Beards. Thumbs up or thumbs down? Thumbs up. My hubby has a beard, and I like it.
If stuff breaks, can you fix it? That depends on what it is. Yes, if I decided to fix something, I could fix it. I’m blessed that I don’t need to fix things I don’t readily know how to deal with – I’ve got a great support system to help me out, and we draw on each other’s strengths.
What was your first car? Hmm…I first drove my mom’s Ford Aerostar. The first car in my possession was my then-boyfriend’s ’92 Mercury Sable. (I married the boyfriend, dumped the car.)
How often do you eat out? An embarrassing amount, honestly. It depends on the week. We try to eat out one evening a week (well, we eat in, actually). I also get fast food for lunch after my staff meeting each week. But we often end up eating out more than that. If the week gets busy and I get overwhelmed, our menu plan is the first thing to go.
Why is your hair like that? Because I am SO disinterested in my hair. It’s always been difficult to deal with, and I’ve never learned how to manage it well. With limited hours in the day, managing my extremely thick, textured hair is not a high priority. I’m still trying to find the easy hairstyle I like the best. Right now I’m growing it out.
