What would you list as your Top Five Fun Things? Making anything with my own hands, finding shells at the beach, playing with animals, floating in my pool listening to music or an audiobook, looking at antiques (and other flea markets) with David
Should we care about the dreams of others or only our own? I think it is important to focus on our own but to be cognizant of others’ dreams so that if we can help them to reach them somehow, we can do so.
How well do you deal with criticism from others? It depends on if the criticism is valid or not. By this I mean, if the criticism is about something I am doing then maybe it would be okay but if it is criticism about who I am or how I see value in myself then no, I don’t care what you think. Either way I do get edgy if I disagree but am able to keep my feelings under control until I am out of the situation. Once the feelings have dissipated then I would probably address the critic and talk about it.
Do you say YES or NO more often, and which is it? I say Yes more often than No because I believe in encouraging people to do what they think they should.
What is nose hair for? Catching allergens before they reach your sinus cavity
What is the funniest comment you have ever received? Shortly after having my son I had gotten a new job at a restaurant. When I started one of the other waitstaff came up to me and introduced herself and asked me if I had kids. Then she asked me “Do they have the same father?”. Maybe this isn’t a comment but I was so taken aback because I didn’t know that many people who had multiple kids with multiple partners. As I got older that changed and it sort of became more of the norm, which I don’t know is good or bad.
Novels or Netflix? Netflix except for at the beach
Do good things come to those who wait? Supposedly but I’m still waiting…No, seriously, I have quite a lot to be thankful for so I’m just waiting for that “big something”, like money to pay of my bills or money to travel.

Hey Christine, interesting answers and l agree with your take on criticism and what a bizarre thing to ask of someone regarding their kids, but whilst there was a time when that would have seemed more bizarre, today it isn’t always the case. With divorces on the rise and at times large families getting together in the remarry, it makes for more sense.

Yes mixed families are more the norm now. Not sure if it is the same in other countries.

I think its the same around the world these days, there are many new norms, but that is the beauty of a changing world 🙂
