Tag...I'm It!

This is my first tag on something like this, so I thought, hey, what the heck! The questions come from Jen and so here are my answers:

If you could go anywhere for a vacation, money no object, where would you go and why? Who would you take with you?
Money is no object, you say? Well then, I would for sure go with my husband and children on a resort vacation. This way we could all enjoy the experience, which would be our very first holiday like this, and a high end resort offers childcare so that when hubbins and I felt the need to have "us" time, we could and we'd know the kids were having a ball!

What has been your biggest challenge as an adult?
Knowing that it's my responsibility to have all the answers and not having a Mom to help me out.

What are you currently reading? What led you to that book?
Emergence Labeled Autistic -- a true story by Temple Grandin
I was at the Autism Conference, saw this book, read the back and had to have it. Why? Autism absolutely fascinates me. I am intrigued and compelled to read stories such as this because they are true and they provide me with insight into the mystery of Autism. We can learn the most about any childhood disorder by going straight to the source. Often this is not possible, so when I can, I do.

What is one thing you will never ever ever eat? Why?
Caviar for obvious reasons!! Oh, and any type of insect. Again, for obvious reasons!

It is Sunday morning, 10:00 AM. What are you doing?
Sipping on a delicious cup of coffee, pretending that the snow that is coming down outside is actually just the flower blooms blowing in the breeze.

Which is more important to you? A tidy home or a clean home? Is there a difference to you?
A clean home, without a doubt. I have long let go of the foolish notion that I may have a tidy home while I have little people living here. However, I believe that my boys should not feel like they can't be children because I am over-anal about tidiness. (is that a word?). Sooooo, there's only a couple of rooms in my house that I prefer to be toy free. The rest of the house is fair game. BUT, whatever mess they make, they have to clean.

If you were given a full-ride scholarship to the post-secondary institution of your choice, where would you go?
I'm not sure exactly, but it would have something to do with children and development. Maybe a specialist in child development ... I have always looked up to the doctors that come here for Child Development Clinic. They are brilliant.

What courses would you take?
Well unfortunately there would be sciences in there. GROSS. But there would be psychology and anatomy too, which would be neat.

Would you rather go to an action movie or a girly movie?
A girly movie. I get enough action and anxiety provoking moments in my daily life. I like to just sit back and enjoy some fluffy moments.

If/when you start to grow grey hair, will you wear it with pride or dye it into submission?
So far, I just go with it. Because I think that my Aunties and Uncles on the Blair side are all very good looking with their greys. If I could wear it with as much grace and beauty as they do, bring it on!!!

Dogs or cats?
Yoink. What if they find out I've chosen one over the other??
I truly do love them both. I think they both have their place and I get great amounts of enjoyment from both.

That was fun!! Not sure what I'm supposed to do my blog to Jen's, I think. I don't know how to do that. :o(

Thanks for the compliment on the 'grey hair'! And to think I just dyed it yesterday....and discovered I have very color resistant grey hair, so there really isn't much difference!
p.s. it was nice seeing you the other day...we always manage to have a good visit in a short time!
