10 Questions...becuase I have nothing nothing else

This was week 1 of my new job! All I can say is I feel like I just completed an outer body experience. a) This is my dream job. b) Holy shit I am on information overload. c) I never got a second to regroup all week.

In addition to starting new job....Tuesday and Thursday I went straight from work to Scuba classes, and didn't get home until 11 pm. Which means my day pretty much went non stop from 4:35 am - 11 pm. I'm not complaining, because obviously this is all positive and exciting things, but I am feeling pretty exhausted!!!

So instead of an insightful post, here are my 10 questions.

1. Twitter or Facebook? Facebook. I don't even know what Twitter does or is. Hi, I may be in my late 20's, but assume I'm a senior citizen.rik

2. Morning person or night owl? 
Morning person without a DOUBT!! I am almost non-functional once the clock strikes 9 pm. I claim I turn into a pumpkin after 9 pm.

3. How do you drink your coffee? 
Depends on my mood. My usual is with French Vanilla creamer. But if I'm at a nice coffee house, I like a plain latte (or Redeye, espresso w/ coffee) with a touch of sweetener. If I'm drinking iced coffee, I want it black with a little cinnamon. Some days I like almond milk and honey. I am a bit of a snob about my coffee and how it's enjoyed.....

4. It’s 9pm and you’ve got the house to yourself, what do you do? 

Pinterest to search recipes and travel, or decorating. While horizontal in bed.
5. What’s on your nightstand right now? 
My "5 year memory book". A Bible.  Box of Kleenex. My Kindle. An incense burner with half a stick of lavender incense.

6. What smell do you love? 
Fresh baked bread. Chlorox. Especially on hands. My fondest memories are of my Mom tucking me into bed at night, and getting a whiff of the chlorox on her hands (she kept a very clean house). And now my eyes are filling up with tears, because I'm very homesick right now.

7. What smell do you hate? 

Bananas. That smell makes me gag. When I worked in the ER, I used to have a co-worker who would put banana peels in MY garbage can just to watch me flip out.

Also, bacon. Instant gag reflex!

8. Other than your current home, where would you most like to live? 

I would like to downsize by about 1500 square feet. (Our house is TOO MUCH  house to clean, but we got a screaming deal due to foreclosure). Maybe in a smaller 1-story home near the foothills of Tucson. Preferably walking distance from Sabino Canyon.

My non-practical place would be La Jolla outside of San Diego. But we are should a few billion dollars....

9. If you could eat only one nationality of food for the rest of your life, which one would it be? 

Japanese.  I could live off sashimi, cucumber salad, and miso soup. And mochi ice cream!!!

10. When you were six years old, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

 Architect. Without a doubt. I had an architect program on my computer. I was OBSESSED!! I am so far from an architect now, it isn't even funny!!!

Ha, I remember all of those house plans you used to draw when you were a kid! I totally thought you were going to be an architect some day with how passionate you were about it!!

Sounds like you've had some long days this week but that they've been fulfilling which always helps! I'm so happy that you are loving your new job!

Sorry to hear you are homesick. :( Being far from home is so so so so trough. :( Do you know when you will be back in MN next? It already seems like it's been so long since you were home even though Christmas was not long ago. This morning I ran with a girl that went to AZ last week and it had me craving a trip to AZ. I really want to get out there next spring!

It hurts me that you are homsick, but we are lonesome for you, too! Last year we flew out to spend Easter with you and it was so much fun! Remember the Good Friday service? LOL!!
Wish you could jump in a small plane with Ryan and swoosh to MN for the weekend! Or bi-locate? Wouldn't that be swift?
I'm anxious to hear all about your new job once you get through all the classes & preparation.
You should do a post on your scuba experience - what did it feel like to be under water in that suit? Is it easy to relax and breath?
Keep you big house so we can all come and visit you! But i know what you mean about cleaning it. I must confess that I don't clean as diligently as I did when you kids were all home - partly my age and time! What, I don't have time when I have no children under our roof and no games and concerts etc to attend? Go figure!

Wow I have to admit it's kind of refreshing to read about someone wanting to DOWNSIZE! Most of the time I just hear about how people want a bigger house and we get caught up in that ourselves too even though we currently have more than enough room for the two of us and could easily add a kid or two as well.

I'm a morning person as well but can usually make it to about 10pm each night before I'm totally exhausted!
