When All Else Fails, Play a Meme!

I realize that, now that my fantasy/vacation time is over, I'm feeling overwhelmed. The holidays seem so close and I haven't even started my shopping yet. I've got a pile of catalogs stacked up next to my bed that I've skimmed through, but I haven't placed one order. If I don't hurry, I won't have time to wait on mail-order delivery.

Yesterday, my son was asking about our traditional advent calendar. It's a wooden job shaped like a house, with drawers that I fill with little treats. I realized, as I dug it out of the basement today, that we've already missed opening three drawers for the first three days of December. December?! How'd that happen?

I wish I was back in the Bahamas indulging in my big "Fantasyland" escape!

I know! A perfect way to procrastinate! A meme! I got tagged with this "ABC Meme" that's going around. I'm a little late, 'cause I got tagged while I was out of town. No worries--I'll just play now. Thanks, Beauty, for giving me the perfect vehicle for putting off all the things I need to do, but am not because I feel paralyzed with the ever-popular "overwhelm." Pathetic? Me? Ah, give me a break! I have a dissociative disorder.

Okay, here goes:

A ~ Available? Nope. Married for almost 15 years now.
B ~ Best friend: My hubby (I know it sounds corny, but it's true!)
C ~ Cake or pie? Pie.
D ~ Drink of choice: This time of year--hot spiced cider (not spiked, spiced).
E ~ Essential thing used every day: Vitamins/supplements and lots of water!
F ~ Favorite color: Purple.
G ~ Gummi bears or worms? Neither. If it's not chocolate, why bother?
H ~ Hometown: (I feel weird listing this one, because as a kid I never really had a "Home.") Technically: Wheaton, Illinois.
I ~ Indulgence: Chocolate.
J ~ January or February? January, because that's when my New Year's Day baby (my son) was born!
K ~ Kids and names: Daniel.
L ~ Life is incomplete without: Nature.
M ~ Marriage date: 1984 and 1993.
N ~ Number of siblings: 2.
O ~ Oranges or apples? Apples.
P ~ Phobias/fears: They're trauma related and I don't want to talk about it. I used to have a terrible fear of spiders, but I got over it.
Q ~ Favorite quote: "What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
R ~ Reason to smile: Acting silly with my hubby and/or son.
S ~ Season: Fall.

T ~ Tag three people: Enola, April, Rising Rainbow.
U ~ Unknown fact about me: Some people still don't know that I'm an identical twin.
V ~ Vegetable you don't like: Lima beans.
W ~ Worst habit: Clenching my teeth.
X ~ X-rays you've had: finger, toe, back, chest x-rays for bronchitis.
Y ~ Your favorite food: ice cream (or chocolate...or both).
Z ~ Zodiac: Scorpio.

Ok, I"ll play but I just can't tell you when. lol
Hey, a fellow Scorpion--cool!

I'm glad I gave you an easy way to procrastinate on all you really should be doing.

Okay I played along.
Enola: Oh goody! I'll come by and see what you wrote! :) Thanks for playing with me.
RR: thanks for being willing to play. No worries on the timing--I sure was late myself. ;)
Ha! LOL! I'm so out of it I don't remember the alphabet! Thanks, Enola, for pointing out that I left out the "R" and mixed it up with the "S!" Okay, I'm going to correct that now.

:P :P :P :P :P :P :P
Mu hubby is my best friend too. Nothing corny about that, btw.
Yeeeaaah, Dr. Deb. You're right! Thanks. :)
I like the list. :)


I clench my teeth too. I just got a night guard to help stop the damage I'm doing to my teeth.
Karma: It's so nice to "see" you! It's weird that we both just got night guards. I hope they work well for both of us.
