The One Where I Participate in Ten on Tuesday (#4)

Confession time:  I started this yesterday (meaning I copied and pasted the questions into my new post form) and then never got a chance to get back to it. So, it's actually Wednesday morning at 9:22 when I am publishing it. But they are such great questions that I couldn't not answer them! Hopefully Chelsea doesn't kick me out of the TOT club!

1. Fill in the blank. Sometimes I wish my life was more ______.
2. How do you cure the hiccups?

    Sometimes I will hold my breath, but it never really works, which is annoying because I have REALLY loud hiccups and so when I go to answer the phone at work, it ends up being "good HICCUP morning" followed by profuse apologies. One time, my boss (who is a 68 yr old man) decided that he needed to help me cure my hiccups, so I was standing at his desk talking to him and while he was giving me his answer he threw in a really loud scream into the middle of his sentence. Scared me to death! I don't remember if it worked or not ... I just remember the fact that the executive director screamed in my face :-)
3. What are three of your favorite indulgences?

     1. A ton of creamer in my coffee
     2. Spending all day reading
     3. Buying the good toilet paper 
4. Where is the most exotic place you would like to travel to? The most mundane?
     1. Egypt
      2. Checotah, OK 
5. Does having your time planned out stress you or relax you?
     Having a plan relaxes me. I don't plan my time out in hour by hour increments, but I like to at least have a handle on what is going on.
6. What are your favourite fabrics to wear?

7. Do you sleep through the night?

    Nope! Before I was married I would on nights when I was really tired, but I wake up periodically other nights. Now that I'm married, I wake up every night. Just for brief moments, but there is definitely waking time!
8. When you were younger, what did you think you would be doing at this age? How close is that to what you are doing?

    Depends on how much younger. I'm going to go with late Jr High/High School, because that was when I was actually practical about my future (you know ... not some amazing horse trainer in Kentucky or an Orca Whale whisperer). Anyways, I would be a psychologist, with a practice and a husband and a baby. I always thought I would marry my high school sweetheart,but since he never showed up that didn't pan out so well. Then I thought I would start having kids in my early twenties. Not so much. So, the answer is, no. I never thought I would be a secretary at a Christian Camp in SE Montana. However, I did get the married part right! I was just a little ahead of schedule when I would dream about it :-)
9. What has surprised you most about growing up?

    The fact that we can't do whatever we want. We are taught over and over that all we have to do is dream and it will come real. While I am all about having dreams and goals and pursuing them, sometimes life just doesn't work out that way. I can't be a famous actress. I simply don't have the skills! Life is about accepting who you are, what your skill levels actually are and dreaming within them (with a HUGE dose of following the path God has for you!)
10. Are you good at keeping secrets?

     Depends on whether it is my secret or someone else's secret. I am TERRIBLE at keeping my secrets. I have such a good core group of friends that I tell all of them, everything (when I get a chance to talk to them at least :) ). And so I have very few "me" secrets. Other people's secrets are another story. I really do try to keep a handle on those. However, I do like to tell hubby. Just because I know he won't tell and it helps me to have at least that one release.
