I don't know if I have ever done this meme before, but since I am waiting for my son to get ready (haircut MUST be done today), I figured I'd kill a little time blogging. :)
Saturday 9: It's a Beautiful Morning
1. Are you a morning person?
I am most definitely NOT a morning person. Well, wait...I am a morning person in the fact that I like to stay up until it is morning and then crash to sleep. This worked well for me in college as I was always up late at night studying and one of my jobs was working as a cocktail server at a night club which. I have worked many over night jobs from working in a group home overnight to working overnight in a casino as again a cocktail server. Not being a morning person served me well for those jobs. I work a day job now and am married to a wonderful man who definitely is a morning person. No more staying up until the wee hours for me any more.
2. Tell us of a news story that truly shocked you.
I am beyond shocked by the story of baby Garbriel. LINK: Arizona Baby Missing
I do not understand how anyone could hate an ex so much that they would take off with their child and give him to strangers. Her story is supposedly she gave the baby to some couple she met in a park. First she sent the father texts that said she killed the baby. Now they have found that the hotel she stayed at has been a place where women who are involved in underground adoptions have stayed. She and the child were also seen on security camera in front of Six Flags and that too apparently is some place where birth mothers apparently have met up with the adoptive families. Here are all the levels to which I am shocked.
1 - That she refuses to help at all with finding the baby.
2 - That she texted that she killed the baby (so no one knows for sure if the baby is even alive).
3 - If a couple did adopt this child, they have had to see something in the news. Why are they not coming forward. What kind of people are they? This just scares me for this poor baby.
On every level this creeps me out, frustrates me, and breaks my heart.
3. What was your very first job?
Other than baby sitting, I was a jewelry inspector at a costume jewelry company in Johnston, Rhode Island. We took the jewelry off the wire from the dipping racks, made sure that everything looked good and then packed it up for the shippers. In a word... BORING.
4. What characteristics do you despise?
Selfish and self-centered people. These are the backbone of rude and callous behavior.
5. To where would you retire?
I don't know. I hope I can retire. I would love to retire in Carmel some day. Pretty pricey though. :)
6. Are you named after anyone?
7. How do you release anger?
I listen to some serious loud music like old Limp Bizkit.
8. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I try not to, but I have a very sarcastic and snarky side. I never use it at people. I just make sarcastic observations about events in my life.
9. What is your least favorite thing about yourself?
My hypothyroidism drive me nuts right now. That and all the stuff that goes with it. Other than that, I am fine with myself. :)
