It’s FRIDAY!!! That means it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer five little questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog and enjoy!!

1. What religion were you raised as a child, if any, and are you still a member of that faith today? Why or why not?

I wasn't raised in any particular religion. I spent time attending the Mormon church with the neighbors as a young child. Faith is something I struggle with. I feel like I have the Mind and Body part way more dialed in than the Spirit aspect of things. I feel like I can do so in my own way. I also think that the since of community I might feel attending a church would be nice sometimes too though.

2. Do you have an all time favorite candy or do you change favorites often?

I love frozen peanut butter cups. A little too much.

3. Are you a green thumb? Do you landscape your yard or plant any flowers or a garden? Do you pay someone to do it for you? Do you not plant a single thing?

I have been in the landscape industry for years and years. However I do not have one single plant in my home. We have natural landscaping around our home but it was all existing prior to us moving here. We have had a few great gardens in the past but it is so much work for the "non-protein" trade off. We have had a couple good crops of LEGAL medicine ;) I don't partake myself because of the whole munchies thing but they grew quite beautifully.

4. Let’s just say you were a tattoo junkie and you were planning your next tat and it had to be words only. What words would you choose? A quote? Phrase? One word? Would you do it in English or a different language?

Funny you should ask this! I am struggling with this very question right now. I have my Windmill tattoo set up for early next month for my birthday and have been wanting to add words to it. I have searched lyrics and quotes and nothing had spoke to me and then last night I came across this on FB:

My windmill is going to go on my shoulder cap and part way down arm. am going to change up the words a little to read: Sky above me, Wind to carry me, Earth to ground me, Fire inside me (Maybe.. its in the working stages)

I like the looks of this windmill

I have a large smallpox vaccination scar on that arm. So I am going to see if he can make it the moon in the background of windmill sort of like the center moon on this

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week.

Sigh... It has been pretty stressful. My husbands truck got both the rear slider window and front windshield broke (and replaced) so pinto's it is till payday ;/ aside from that nothing exciting really. I have been throwing my fishing pole in the pond as a form of meditation. I've been solar collecting like a lizard on a rock. Oh, and my Granddaughter has learned to blow raspberries! Too Cute!

WTF Wednesday

WTF or Why the F*** is it so hard for me to get a blog post published? I mean, I have all day, everyday that I could devote to the cause. I write in my head a lot but they never make it to my blog. I guess I'm still in a funky spot and am trying not to use this place to bitch and moan.

WTF is the deal with fingernail clippers & pens that actually write in my house? I swear, they walk away. I'm going to attach something to them like when you get the keys to a service station restroom. I've looked for both this morning so I'm frustrated. lol

WTF is the up with having to do peoples jobs for them? I have had three issues this week (so far) where they clearly dropped the ball and I did it myself when IT WASN'T MY JOB! Nothing major, just time suck stuff where I'd follow up on stuff only to find that it was a good thing I did because it was stalled in the process somewhere.

WTF is in a Jack in the Box taco? I really want to know... No I don't..Don't tell me.

Happy Wednesday!

BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!

5 questions we answer in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Join us!!

1. Do you have any Mother’s Day traditions?

My sister usually has a gathering at her house in California and I try to attend with my Mom and one other sister. Hoping to head down there next week for a few days. My boys aren't real good about Mother's day. My daughter always does or say's something sweet. My husband on the other hand has a famous line of "But you're not my Mother" Really? It feels that way sometimes.

2. Do you take a daily vitamin? Why or why not?

I take Vit D3 2000iu, B12 and CoQ10

3. Do you wear perfume every day? If yes, what kind?

I wear CK Euphoria... even if I don't leave the house.

4. When you walk or run or work out outside – what do you take with you?

Here in BFE I carry a gun (Bears & Cougars, Oh My!) I always have my phone and a walking stick. I usually have my bluetooth and try to do my calls to the BFF when I have the privacy.

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week.

In a nutshell... FML
Well, it is not that bad I guess.
Having a lot of band issues. I am unfilled by 1cc (half a month ago and half on Wednesday) Allergies and stress are my big issues. I'm not worried about getting it back when I need it.
Lots of things going on that I had hoped to blog about someday. Changes? maybe..

In the meantime I am loving that Granddaughter of mine. She is 5 months old now and just the sweetest light in my life.
