Ten for Tuesday

Yea, Ten for Tuesday time!
  1. Fill in the blank. Sometimes I wish my life was more ______.Oh boy.  This question could go so many different ways.  The way I want it to be.  Complete.  Spontaneous.  Affordable (as far as being able to do what I want, like travel and not have to work a normal 8-5 job).  
  2. How do you cure the hiccups?It's a secret.  Next time you have the hiccups I'll tell you.
  3. What are three of your favorite indulgences?
    Sephora makeup
    1/2 Fat, Slow Churned Ice Cream
    Peanut Butter M&M's
  4. Where is the most exotic place you would like to travel to? The most mundane?Exotic:  Anywhere outside North America, perferrably Greece or Italy.  Mundane:  Anywhere to visit family.
  5. Does having your time planned out stress you or relax you?Both.  It all depends on what is on my planned list.  If it's a lot of big things and I feel crunched for time to get them done then I start to stress, but it's manageable stress.  I'd stress if I didn't have things planned out either though.  For the most part, I am a planner.  I love lists.  I love crossing things off lists.  Overly planned anything stresses me out though.  To the max.
  6. What are your favourite fabrics to wear?Soft cotton.  Sweat pant cotton materia.  Flannel, as in pj pants.  Whatever that material that a lot of shirts are being made from lately, the softly, thin, flowy stuff.
  7. Do you sleep through the night?
    I used to sleep like a log.  Not so much any more.  With Riley and her seizures I'm up whenever I hear her moving.  The noise of her scratching her neck sounds very similar to the noise of when she seizes.  Now I just need to start going to be early enough to get a full 8 hours...
  8. When you were younger, what did you think you would be doing at this age? How close is that to what you are doing?
    I knew I wanted to go to Cal Poly like my parents and my aunts and uncles.  I had no concept of actually graduating, I just knew that after I was a big kid (high school) I wanted to move on and go to the school that most of myfamily went to.  I don't remember what occupation I wanted.  (mom, help me out...)  Probably a teacher or a nurse.  Maybe I wanted to be a mommy.  As I got older this was the plan: 1) graduate high school, 2) go to Cal Poly, 3) work on my MRS degree, 4) graduate from Cal Poly, 5) get married within a year or 2 of graduation, 6) be married a few years before starting a family, 7) be a stay at home mommy or work from home.  So far I've completed 1, 2, 4, and I'm working on the "work from home" part of 7.
  9. What has surprised you most about growing up?
    Growing up too fast was not a good idea.  It's not a given that you get a real job then buy a house.  Or that you graduate from college and get married.  Things haven't gone "according to my plan" but that doesn't mean that I haven't enjoyed the life I've been given. 
  10. Are you good at keeping secrets?Yes.  No.  Depends how big the secret is.  Sometimes I even forget what the secret was, other times I have to consciously not tell the secret or make it obvious that I have one.

Greece and Italy are on my list too. I'd love to go. Mainly for the food, but also for the sights.
