Getting to know me

On ScrapShare the weekly blog challenge is getting to know each of us. Below are the questions that we were tasked to answer.

1) Right now I want:
To finish the rest of the Mocha Almond Assault ice cream from Kimball Farm that I have in the freezer! I love this ice cream!!!

2) I wish I knew how to:
Speak French fluently. I took many years of French in school and wish that I could speak it really well. Not that I have a need to other than when we visit Montreal. I just love the way it sounds. Very romantic!

3) When I want to indulge myself, I:
Get a pedicure! I go to a salon in Nashua, NH that has the most awesome Nail Technician, Jennifer Hall, who gives great manicures and pedicures!

4) You’ll never see me:
NAKED! Ha ha ha - I had to say that!

5) A childhood memory that I love:
Playing cards and cribbage with my grandmother. My grandmother taught me how to play so many games. Sorry, Canasta, Rummy, Cribbage to name a few. She used to call me "Grabby Abby" for taking all the cards when we played Gin. How I would love to play a game of Cribbage with her again! I can still hear her counting 15-2, 15-4, 15-6... Oh Gram, how I miss you!

6) 2 things I do every single day:
Drink coffee and kiss my DH. Not necessarily in that order.

7) Happiest moment of 2008, so far:
Making the decision to get myself in shape.

8) Describe yourself in 3 words:
Big Control Freak .
Three nicer words to describe myself: Independent, Caring, Outgoing

My kids answers:
M. said: Creative, Skillful, Kind.

J. said: Cook, Kind, Funny. When I told him that Cook was not an adjective he said "Yummy Cook" which of course makes it 4 but hey, whose counting when they are good things!

9) 2 scrap related goals for this year:
a. Finish my 1995 family album and continue onto 1999.
b. Start to put my parents pictures into Picfolio albums.

10) You have $40 that you MUST spend on yourself – what do you do with it?
See answer #3. Or better yet, a trip to Michaels, AC Moore or Ink About It for scrapbooking and stamping supplies.
