How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

Probably 35 since that’s about how old I look. (I’m 33.) But if I’m going on how I physically feel at times, I could be a senior citizen, or if I’m going off how mature I can be, then it’s more like 12. If I take the average of those ages, then I still come out to about the same age I am now.

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

If you had asked me this a few weeks ago, I’d say no, I don’t know. Because I lost it. And then I lost the replacement umbrella. But I bought a replacement replacement umbrella, and it’s in my car now. I probably won’t remember to take it out unless there’s a downpour, but at least I know where it is.

Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?

I prefer spending quiet time alone. Sometimes I can decompress around my husband if he’s engrossed in something else and isn’t bugging me, but usually it has to be alone, with no one else in the house, since even if I hide out in my bedroom by myself, there’s always the chance of hearing screams or someone banging on my door.

Name three things you and your spouse, partner or best friend to have in common.

Sense of humor, taste in TV shows, and anxiety. The first two apply to my husband and all three apply to my best friend.

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

There’s a lot to be grateful for from last week — a fun overnight trip with my family, spending time with my extended family, getting a stronger anti-inflammatory from my rheumatologist without having to go into the office, a quiet, relaxing weekend. This week I’m looking forward to having a fairly laid back week and soccer. Little Man has two games, and I made Baby Girl an adorable shirt to wear. (Tomorrow will be her first of the season since it was so cold the other games.)

Now if I can just keep her from running out on the field and raiding the after-game snacks…

I’m also grateful that the Gamecocks beat Duke last night and made it to the Sweet Sixteen. One of the players on the team is from my hometown, too, so that made it even sweeter.

Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Nope. I press it just the one time, and then if I’m by myself, I check something on my phone so I can avoid making small talk with anyone else on the elevator.

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

I like having a general idea of what I’m doing and where I’m going, but I don’t like having every minute planned out, either. It’s nice to be a bit spontaneous and see where it takes you.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

Funny, kind, creative, empathetic.

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?

Oh jeez.That’s a toss-up between the beach and an ocean cruise. On one hand, I can camp out under something (like the pier) by the ocean and enjoy the breeze and water without getting too hot in the sun. There’s a lack of umbrellas and otherwise shady spots on cruises in my experience. However, cruises do take you to nice beaches where there are plenty of umbrellas…hmm.
