Dramedy? Do I have to pick one?  I guess because I have anxiety, I would go with Comedy usually...

You're moving.  You have 3 weeks from Today to get it together, including several 'handyman' type projects, as well as some other 'desk' projects to complete to make it go smoother and so you can eliminate confusion and crap.  Which group do you tackle first, assuming you have 2-3 days each week to work on them?

I am horrible about procrastinating, so the easy answer is, I'd leave it all to last minute. Of that last minuteness, I'd do the ones that make things go smoother first, and the handyman ones last. I'm not very handy with DIY so I definitely put it off.

When going to a restaurant, do you try something new or get your fave each time because you know you love it?

My maternal grandpa taught me to always be who I am, even if it doesn't make me popular for my choices and never settle for who others want me to be. He also taught me the importance of a good cup of coffee. We lost him in October of 2008. Gosh I miss that guy. The sheer number of people who turned out for his funeral was impressive. He was a coal miner and farmer, humble, and treated everyone as if they were the most important person in his world, and everyone respected and loved him for that.

When you've been away for a while, who is the first person you contact to tell catch up with?

No. There has been a time or two I have wondered if death was imminent (rear ended by a semi once, and food poisoning the other), but nothing I could say was an actual near death experience.

Do you have any family heirloom or hand me down household items you use daily or nearly daily?

I have! I drowned and had to be resuscitated, snorkeling in Belize. The friend who saved me is still one of my BEST FRIENDS, 15 years later.

I have a trunk brought here by my stepdaddy's great great grandfather from Germany that I use both as storage for my sewing things, and as a coffee table.  I also have my great grandmother's bedroom set, including vanity, bed, and dresser, which my children use in their room.

Um, neither? Oldest is strung out on drugs, youngest is in prison for unmentionable crimes...
2nd oldest is awesome, though. One of my best friends.

I forgot to ask a question last time, so I'm going to ask two.

If you were a stay at home parent, and just put all of your kids in school for the first time, how long would you wait before getting a job [part or full time]? Or would you?

I wasn't lucky enough to have kids, but the plan was to be a stay at home mom as long as any of them were still at home, then find a job during the hours they were at school. Well, the main plan was to also be a writer or do something freelance where I could work from home so I'd be there during school holidays.

Pets: animals who live with you, or valued family members?

Just a comment on TamaMoo's question... I think the type of people who view pets as family members are the only people who seek out and keep pets in the first place! I simply adore my parrot... he brings so much joy to my life!! He doesn't cost that much to care for, either. ;)

Yoga! I've been looking for a new yoga studio. Thinking of getting back into hot yoga... hmm...

Cafetière/French press or pour-over/cone filter for home coffee brewing?

i know some people who think of them as adored animals who live with them, but most people I know think of pets as family members. Joey (cockatiel) is my kid. He has feathers and funky looking feet, but he is my child. You're right, birds don't cost much to care for, even with higher quality foods and pellets, since they last so long.

At home it is either brewed or Keurig coffee, simply because that is what I have. I've been thinking of getting a press, just because they make such amazing coffee.

Eggnog or mulled wine for a festive drink?

Aw, cockatiels are darling. :) My feather-butt (Ollie) is a red-bellied parrot. I call him my little dinosaur. He's a goofball and I love him like he's my own! Sadly he's staying back in the states with my parents until May. I know he's in good hands (he shamelessly flirts with my mom), but I miss him every day. :\\\'(

Eggnog, certainly! With freshly grated nutmeg... mmm!

PS4 or Xbox One?

Red-bellied parrots are gorgeous! I can imagine you miss him. Just the three weeks we were in the UK in September and October I missed him, even though I knew I'd see him. I can imagine you miss your Ollie.

I'm not much into game systems, but hubby has a well loved, often used Xbox One.

Traditional Christmas/holiday of your choice meal, or try something new and exciting?
