A Facebook Meme – “Getting to Know Each Other”

A dear friend did this meme on Facebook and passed it along. I don’t use Facebook notes much anymore, so I decided to answer the questions here!

7.44am – when Elijah woke.

I have many! Currently I listen to a lot of reruns of Arrested Development and The West Wing while I get things done, but I really do have a long list.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? 

Honestly not sure – ask myself that a lot. Possibly the French countryside (Burgundy). But, ideally it would actually be by the ocean, preferably north Atlantic. Failing that, definitely by a large body of freshwater.

Probably…trying to be more spontaneous with the time that isn’t clearly regimented into routine for my son. In other words, I keep a fairly strict schedule so he has predictability and stability, but there are blocks of an hour or two in between regular events that are ‘free time’, and I have been trying to be spontaneous with what we do in that time, to keep it fun and educational.
