Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why? Go here to read more about how the words are chosen.
I don't care for "the new normal", aren't we making a new one every day?? Maybe that's not such a good thing...
2. Are you easily embarrassed?
In public, yes, in private, not so much.
3. What is your go-to snack?
I have been a few times. This is a very timely question, as my neice is getting ready to go in a couple of months. I told her the tour and changing of the guards at Arlington National Cemetary is really moving. I also think that every Human Being should be required to go to the Holocaust Museum. It is vital that we realize there is true evil, how we didn't recognize it, and how to fight it. I also really enjoyed the Ford Theater when I went with my DD. It is really spooky and very historic - the museum is very well done. We also enjoyed a great display of Norman Rockwell at the Smithsonian Art Museum. The coolest part is most of these are free or very low cost things to do.
5. Sit ups-planks-lunges-squats…which do you hate the least?
Probably squats, but I am always sore the next day. I can't do sit-ups since my shoulder surgery and Planks are ridiculous - I have no core...lol.
My entire group from work came to my Daddy's funeral when he past away. The funeral was a bit of a drive from work about 45 min. but they all came - over 20. I can't tell you how much that meant to me and most of them had never met my Daddy. I was really devastated by his relatively quick death and it really made an impression on me.
I had always heard how people hate funerals and how they won't go but that day I learned an importatn life lesson. The funeral is for the grieving and by going you are helping them grieve. And that is a Very Important Thing.
Yes, I am "O" Positive, the Universal Donor so I try to give.
