Ten on Tuesday

31 Aug

So.  This is my first post since April.  Some things that have changed since I last posted: I now have a dog (one of my excuses reasons for not posting); I am now thirty years old; and I received a promotion at work.  I am also involved with some new non-profits, and life is busier than ever.

However, my sister-in-law Chelsea is married, nine months pregnant, works full time, and she has still managed to update her blog nearly every weekday.  So once again, I am looking up to her good example, and will try to update around here more often.

I’ll start off small with participation in Chelsea’s fun Ten on Tuesday blog feature.  Here are the questions and my personal answers!  If you would like to play along, click here for the questions.

1. Pretend it’s Monday morning–take us through a day in the life of you.

Wake up at 7 am and let the dog out.  Brush my teeth, hair, etc.   Walk around in a daze for awhile.  Dig frantically through piles of clean clothes for something to wear to work.  Put together the things I need to take to work, including breakfast, lunch, and quantities of diet coke.  Take the dog for a walk around the neighborhood while reading Twitter and Facebook on my phone.  Feed the dog right before walking out the door.  Leave and come back in at least twice for forgotten items like cell phones, car keys, and work badges.

2. What’s your favorite reality tv show?

I don’t really watch any right now.  I know, I know.  Sacrilege.  I record most shows I watch, including: True Blood, Masterpiece Mystery, Psych, Good Eats, and Scooby Doo Mystery Inc.  haha

3. What motto do you live by?

Treat others as I would like to be treated.

4. If you knew could you try anything and not fail, what dream would you attempt?

Write books.

5. What was your first job?

Retail sales at Gap.

6. What is your current job?

I am in charge of Special Events for the Harris County Hospital District Foundation.  It is my favorite job in the world 🙂

7. What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name (and you cannot pick the one you already have)?

It’s hard to say, probably something more unusual, like January Jones.

8. What musical instruments can you play?

I can play 3 chords on the guitar, and sing enthusiastically (if not well).

9. Is it easier to forgive or forget?

It is easier to forgive – I don’t think we control whether or not we forget.

10. What is one food you’d never want to taste again?

Vienna sausages.  Yuck.

    It’s true – I own a bright red electric guitar, too, so I’m ready to play whenever needed! ha

    Vienna Sausages are nasty. I agree.

    Thanks Autumn! I took that picture a few years ago in Mexico. I sold a 16 x 20 print of it this year, making me an official, real life photographer! (Right?)

    If by “nearly every weekday” you actually mean “every single weekday”, then yes… yes I do.

    Glad you’re back! 🙂

    Vienna sausages are the cousin to tubed meat… and you know how I feel about that!

    It’s a good thing that you weren’t at Christi’s baby shower, because one of the games we played was “guess what is in the diaper?” One of the disgusting things in the diaper was smashed up vienna sausages! so so so gross! blech!
