30 things day 8

8. What are 5 passions you have?

I am a pretty passionate person (blame the OCD - whatever I'm in the middle of it's the ONLY thing that exists)

1- the poodle. Making him happy makes me happy
2- decluttering, I love to get rid of stuff
3- helping others. Whether its family (babysitting) or volunteering or listening to a friend
4- the homeless... So I feel like this sounds like a silly one but I really try to make homeless people know that I consider them people and not "annoyances"
5- animal rights, when I see people being mean to an animal or bad mouthing them (pits in particular) I get so MAD!!! I would lay down and die for my pood and I feel like all animals deserve that!
Extra one - the woods and environment DO NOT let me see you litter I will yell
Look at the face of the poodle in here - he literally grinned the whole walk through today :-)

tell me something you're passionate about!

Today I am in Philly

A city I've never been to before yet that is the city the people very dear to me grew up in... It's kind of cool like visiting an old friend and at the same time meeting someone new! What's that song "make new friends but keep the old one is silver and the other gold"
Those are the view from my hotel room
And the fireplace rooms? The elevators!!!
And a cool city garden

how has your weekend been?

30 things day 7

Well I'm sitting here in NYC traffic I figured I'd start the next question:

7. What is your dream job, and why?
I want to own a small business (in my dream it's a bed and breakfast) hubs says we need to work towards it... I kind of agree but we need to figure out our exactly what it is and where!
Or a dog trainer
Or a yoga teacher
(maybe both - look at the poodle doing yoga)
Thoughts thoughts thoughts

At any rate I have a fun weekend ahead.
I'm headed down to PA again! Tomorrow is the wedding :-)

what's your dream job?
And what are you doing this weekend?

30 things day 6

I took a bit of a hiatus unplanned there... Between driving to Pennsylvania and home I was exhausted Saturday and Sunday. And yesterday was me at the oral surgeon.

BUT check out who I volunteered with!!!!!

6. What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

HMMM - this is a hard one... I guess I'll have to say my mom passing away. Knowing I'd never see her smile, hear her happily humming as she did her chores, or feel her hugs was brutal

what's something hard you've dealt with

My mom has passed away - she is still one of my favorite people! Not a day goes by that I don't think about her and wish she was here :-)

2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.

I am afraid of:
The dark
Scary looking men

I'm not sure how I became afraid of any of them. I do know that I'm afraid of the dark because I figure I won't see the scary looking men (logic much?)

What a crazy busy week

Last weekend I was at the fair!
This weekend I'm in Maine - how'd I get from there to here?
A few laughs
A few tears
A heck of a lot of craziness (and for once it wasn't me)

Some highlights
- they added an alumni class at the end of the weekend and I rode a cute little pony
- a hella lot of family drama happened and I breathed deep and took my butt to yoga and managed to not hurt myself in the process (score)
- my little nephew started 1st grade on Tuesday and celebrated his 7th birthday Wednesday
- I went to ikea on Thursday and managed to "only" spend $105 (which for ikea is impressive)
- Friday I babysat two boys and pack for a weekend away
- Saturday required sitting in traffic for hours with kidneys that are killing me
And today and tomorrow will be great walks, fun movies and time on the ocean...

+++what are you doing for labor day weekend?
