Tag ABC Your It
Look inside my upstairs window, I left the curtain open just for you.
Available: I could be, make me an offer.
Best Friend (female and male): Heidi and Robbie; and the sad thing is that they are both better friends to me than I am to them.
Cake: Emillios cheesecake that Nadalene makes with cherry pie-filling on top.
Drink of choice: since chemo, I really don’t like drinking anything. I gag on almost all liquid with the exception of tea.
Essential thing used everyday: my soul. I need it to show itself to me so that I won’t be scared.
Favourite colour: yellow. It is a feel good colour and it makes me happy.
Gummy bears or worms: neither. However, I like the look of the worms in that little cake people make for kids. Heidi made Miki a chocolate cake in an ice cream cone with icing and worms sticking out of it for her birthday when she was little and that was the first time I ever saw it. Heidi, I just was rethinking this and was that for Robbie’s birthday or Micki’s?
Hometown: Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada baby.
Indulgence: what ever my little heart desires. There is no denial for this girl.
January or February: Josephine, you must have seen that coming. Don’t give me a J and think I am not going to follow it with an osephine.
Kids: Angelique (32), Nadalene (30), and Nathan (25).
Life: is always worth it.
Marriage date: July 5, 1975.
Number of Siblings: 14 (12 living and 2 dead). 9 sisters = Kathy, Suzie, Mickey, Camille, Jacquie, Colette, Lori, Shelly and Pauline (dead). 5 brothers = Harry, Dwain, Gerry, Joey and Peter (dead).
Oranges or apples: neither and both.
Phobia: flying. But Shelly hooked me up to the fear of flying course on the internet and it really helps me every time I fly.
Quote: “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.”
Reason to smile: Josephine is saying Grandma and Grandpa.
Season: Fall, although now I am starting to see the beauty in all of them. When you think you may not see the next season and it comes along, it is beautiful.
Tag three people: Camille, Jeannine, and Shirley. Of course I really want to hear from all of you.
Unknown fact about me: I am a great great aunt. Not only because I am a great aunt and love my family but because my sister Camille’s granddaughter Erin had a little girl named Ella. So thank you Erin, now I am a great great aunt.
Vegetable you don’t like: broccoli. Yes, everyone and their dog have told me to eat it because it is good at fighting cancer. It is also good at making me gag myself silly.
Worst habit: not listening to people on the phone. When I am on the phone I can’t wait to get off, so I am already summing up the end of the conversation even if I have just started talking to the person. Just as they say hello, I am already saying thanks for calling, talk to you later.
X-rays: are you joking. I have had so many that I have lost track.
Yearning: long life. I would love to live forever, bearing that I would like to live at least long enough to see Nathan married and happy.
Zodiac: Aries. The sign of me first, and if not me my children first. That’s right, I am full of myself.
