Today, it’s below freezing here in our neck of the woods! We’ve been experiencing chilly temperatures for the past three days. Quick, somebody tell “old man winter” it’s March! Enough already. Let’s get down to Monday’s business with Heather’s “Monday Quiz”, shall we?
1. Which are you better at: Reading, Writing or Math?
Many moons ago, in school, my grades were pretty much the same on all three subjects. In life, I’m probably better at reading because I enjoy it very much. Writing is my second love, but, these days, I’m not really sure how good I am at it.
2. Tell us a good ‘come back’ story. Where you were down but were able to reverse fortunes and come out on top.
Once upon a time, I was very irresponsible and didn’t go the the gynecologist for fourteen years. Then I began having problems. One thing led to another, and when I finally went to the doctor, I discovered there was a strong possibility that I might have ovarian cancer. My entire life flashed before my eyes, and it wasn’t a good feeling. I was only 45 years old! Surgery was scheduled immediately.
Thankfully, I didn’t have cancer, but instead had two “chocolate cysts” engulfing my entire right ovary, and the worst case of endometriosis my doctor has ever seen. I spent five days in the hospital. The good news is, I lost sixteen pounds, and, once I recovered from the total abdominal hysterectomy, I felt better than I’d felt in twenty years! I began to exercise regularly, and became able to do things I hadn’t been able to do in a long, long time–plus I didn’t have to buy feminine products anymore!
3. Which would you rather do: dine or eat?
Personally, I prefer to just eat. I’m not really into the “dining thing”.
4. What is one thing the someone close to you does that just annoys the heck out of you?
My hubby, Ed, and I have been going back and forth on issues concerning our bathroom. He refuses to turn on the exhaust fan while he’s showering, then leaves the shower door ajar, once he’s finished. Both things annoy the heck out of me!
My question for you:
5. Have you ever had a “health crisis”?
It was another slow, non-eventful weekend at our house. The weather wasn’t decent for doing much of anything outdoors, so I spent most of Saturday catching up with Season Three of “Downton Abbey”. I only have three episodes left to watch, but I have to admit, I read the spoiler and I know how the season ends… Bummer!
Ed ran a few errands on Saturday, then he and I took a little shopping trip on Sunday, and went out to eat. It was nice to get out of the house after so many days of being shut in. I’m looking forward to some drier weather and milder temperatures this week, plus Ed is taking Friday off, too!
Happy Monday, everyone!
