BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!

It’s Friday – so it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

1. Do you have any siblings? What is your relationship with them? Good, bad, ugly?

I do not have any brothers or sisters

2. Let’s talk pizza. Do you prefer homemade or restaurant? What toppings are your fave?

I hate homemade but love restaurant.

3. When is the last time you cried – in sadness and in joy?

This one is easy..I cried yesterday in the recovery room at the hospital, I was telling a nurse my port revision story and I was just so happy that the surgery was over and I did not feel like crap and I had my first fill....Happiness and drugs made tears come to my eyes....although I am a crier.  I also cried the other day talking to my mom, I felt bad for her she is dealing with quite an ordeal her hubby is suffering from depression and I think it takes a strong person to live with a person who struggles with depression.  He is rarely happy and that to me must make life miserable for all who is around him.  I am trying to understand depression but its hard.  The old me would have told him to get over it and buck up but now I realize he would love to if he could but just can't  I find as I get older that things are just not black and white there are chemical imbalances in people that make it difficult for them to funtion like regular people....this could be a whole blog post in itself so I digress..

4. Do you own a gun – one that is specifically yours? Do you know how to use it?

You know this is an interesting story.  I grew up in Montana where everyone takes gun safety in the 7th grade for PE...seriously weird I know but there are so many guns in Montana that it is probably a good thing.  So I was actually against guns my whole life...my family not so much they go hunting every year and freeze the meat and eat it all year long.  Finally when we were going to have kids I decided I had to make them safe.  So I joined the family with there gun craze but also bought two gunsafes and practice gun safety by storing bullets in a separate location.  I own my own shot gun...and joined a womens league last year and took 3rd place in my division...fun times.  I also own a James Bond Beretta...I love that small gun but I am a terrible aim with it.  My hubby has his collection which are quite different from mine.  I think if you own a gun you better know how to use it and be safe with it...no keeping a loaded gun under your pillow---or anywhere if you have kids.  That thing better be locked up.

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week!

My week was spectacular.  Had my surgery yesterday and I am sore today but better than I thought I would be.  He put a mesh in to hold my port in place rather than just a couple stiches to my muscle so he thinks this will hold it because I told him I don't want to go thru this surgery again anytime soon.   I also got a 3.5 cc fill and I can kinda feel it...kinda.  but I was only on liquids yesterday...today I move on to mushies...so the closer I get to food I will be able to tell more what kind of restriction I have
