Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing-Who are You? Part 7-It is Over

Part 7 Self Image

84. Describe the routine of a normal day for you.
      My day begins at 6:15 a.m. when I wake my grandson for school. At 7 a.m. I wake his sister. She is the last one out of the house before 8 so I head back to the couch to sleep until the hubbs wakes me around 10:00 to get him ready for the day. I help him dress, make his breakfast and surf the web while he eats. Then it is laundry and housecleaning until 3:50 when the first kid gets home from school. After snacks and homework we start dinner. If there are not any after dinner activities that kids need driven to, we settle in to watch our favorite shows of the day. Then shower and bedtimes for the kiddos. The hubbs watches the news and David Letterman and I hang out on the computer. At around 11:30 I get him settled for the night. And tomorrow we do it all over again. What a perfectly boring life we lead.

85. What is your greatest strength as a person?
     I hate these kinds of questions. I hate having to evaluate myself. I would say that my greatest strength is compassion. To be a 'good' nurse you need to have a lot of compassion and that seems to be something I have been blessed with. (Most of the time)

86.  What is your great weakness?
     Oh gads, I knew this was coming. My greatest weakness, without a doubt, is my lack of patience. I have been called the most impatient person ever known by some of my loved ones. But, what do they know, right?

87. Are you going to run for President in 2016?
   Someone good sure needs to!! However in 2016, I will be 65 years old  so that is probably just too old to be running for president. However; if needed, I have plenty of advice to give to anyone who is running to be the next president.

88. Are you generally self-contained?
     Well I would say that I am independent and able to take care of myself. More so than I was a year ago when my hubbs had a stroke. If that is what being self-contained means, then yep I am.

89. Are you generally organized or messy?
   I am mostly organized. I don't like clutter. That doesn't mean that I don't have clutter. Mine is usually just hidden behind closed doors or in drawers.

90. Name three things that you consider yourself to be very good at and three things that you consider yourself to be very bad at...
Good at:
1. I am a very good nurse. I am the best at starting Iv's.
2.I am a good cook. Simple, down home cooking. None of that fancy stuff.
3. I am a good gardener. Both inside and outside. I have a ficus tree that has grown in my living room for more than 25 years. And I have African violets I have kept alive for more than 15 years. They belonged to my mother.
Bad at:
1. Patience...have none. Hate waiting in lines. Hate waiting in restaurants. Hate being on hold on phone.
2. I am terrible at following directions. I never read them. Until I can't figure it out on my own.
3. I am a terrible grocery shopper. Even with a list I forget things. And I don't read labels so I often get home with the wrong thing.....


91. Do you like your neighbors? Do they like you?
      I don't really know my neighbors. And I like it that way. We have lived in this house more than 25 years and I do know the names of those across the street and to the north and south, but that is about all. And you would have to ask them if they like me, cause I don't know.

92. Are you different in public than you are among friend?
     Probably. I am quieter around people I don't know.

93.  What goal do you want most to accomplish in your life time?
     Well, seeing as how I am already 61 years old, this is a dumb question. I want to help my hubbs and grand kids to have a good life.

94. Where do you see yourself in four years?
     I see myself doing exactly what I am doing right now. Taking care of my husband and still raising two grand kids. But drawing a social security check!

95. If you could chose, how do you want to leave this world?
     I want to leave this world quickly. I do not want to have an illness where I linger for a long time. I do not want to be a burden to anyone. If I am sick, and there is no hope of recovery, I want to die. Right now! Remember I am not a very patient person.

96. If you only had one week to live, what three things would be bumped up on the bucket list.
    Well, I have pretty much done most of what I have wanted to do in this life. I would like to take another cruise. I would like to spend a week lying in the sand on a beach in a nice warm spot. And, I would like to visit New York City.

97.  What is one thing about you that really stands out?
     My height. I am 5'10 1/2" tall standing on my very 'flat' feet.

98. What three words best describe your personality?
     Ha Ha Ha.....well I am bitchy, impatient,and sassy.

99. What three words would others use to describe you?
    See number 98.

100. What advice do you have to give?
    Always put on clean non-torn underwear when you leave the house. It is true that you never know when you will be in an accident. As a nurse, I have seen my share of tattered, dirty underwear. So it is true what your mother always told you.

If you would like to play along go here.



  1. Bitchy, impatient, and sassy. What a wicked combination lol have a great weekend.

  2. Would you say that the reason, you might see stained underwear, is because of the accident the person was in,

  3. I am a very patient person. We might balance each other out!

  4. You know, Mitt Romney, Ronald Reagan and Bob Dole were well over 60 when they ran for President. I believe George HW Bush was, too. So 65 doesn't sound that old to me. (I geekishly collect Presidential trivia.)

    I'm barely 5'2, so I am soooooo envious of your stature!

    1. Someitmes it is the miles that makes one old, not the years

  5. Patience comes in many forms. I am very patient with people, but impatient with technology or having to sit idle.

  6. I was a nurse. Didn't enjoy it as much as I would have likes to.

    Have a great rest of your weekend!

  7. Truly adore reading your entries.... I'm not patient either! :)

    and I perfectly HATE self-evaluations!!!


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
