33 Questions and Answers Laced with Gratitude

It's Old School Blogging time!

Like last month, I am going to combine it with my weekly gratitude list. I wasn't going to, but then a really stressful thing happened and I didn't have it in me to write two more posts this week.

Cool? Cool.

Thankful #1: Where is your cell phone? Sitting next to me here at the desk.

Thankful #2: Your significant other? A man named Mark who is 5 1/2 years older than me, has chronic illnesses, works for Home Depot, likes guns, hard rock, strong coffee and soft sheets, and is the love of my life.

Your hair? Cut into an inverted bob and colored medium ash blond. And needs trim!

Thankful #3: Your mother? Has two horses, is happily married to a retired firefighter, is a pescatarian and just recently began living in two places, one for the winter and one for the summer.
