Taking the Tag Challenge...

I was reading one of my 'fave-blogs'---The Rainy Day Wanderer and decided that this little
Q&A might be fun....so here goes.....

Is your room clean?
Which room??? That would be a 'no'.
How many pillows do you sleep with?
Two little ones...and three big ones....but two of the big ones are more like a 'head board'...even though I do have a head board.  I'm not quite five feet tall..and I like for my 'toes' to hang over the foot of the bed, so I 'squooch' myself up to the pillow 'head board' while still being able to 'hang ten' over the foot of the bed.

Reading blogs...writing this...getting ready to take a long bath.
I bet you miss somebody right now?

Do you have unlimited texting?
I don't text....not sure how.

It's part of my 'signature' with my art...but I much prefer my married name...though it's much harder to pronounce until you 'sound' it out for people.

You have to get a piercing, so what do you get?

I HAVE hit rock bottom….more than once!
Do you have trust issues?
Not really....sometimes this comes back to 'bite me'.
I remember shortly after my husband passed away...a gal showed up at my front door at 4:00 in the morning...saying she was desperately trying to find someone to help her get up the money to get her baby's prescription filled.  I gave her some money.  Five visits (and $150.00) later, I finally "figured" out that I was being 'played'.

Some of your answers were so lovely...I bet tooth decay broke out like the plague whenever you and your husband were out together-you sound so sweet together. I'm happy that you have lots of family to surround you with their love and I'm hoping that your hand is very nearly all better...? Your pillow response made me laugh out loud, btw. I can just picture it in my head, :P Take care and have a great week!

Loved hearing more about you, the pillow answer made me laugh. I love to have pillows wedged all around me and I completely get the end of the bed thing. :0)
