BYOC - Oh, How I've Missed Ya

It's been a couple of weeks since I joined in for Bring Your Own Crazy - so I'm so excited to do it today.  I get the questions from the FANTASTIC Drazil, and then answer them for you all to read....and learn more about me.  If you want to join in, please do!!!  You just have to copy the questions into your own blog post...

Alright, let's get started!!

1.  If you were a character on Friends, who would you be and why?
Probably Monica.  Even though I'm still trying to get through the weight issues... I hope to one day be able to say that I was "Fat Joanna"...just like she was "Fat Monica".  My OCD isn't as bad as Monica's, but there are other things about her I can relate to.

2.  If you weren't in your current career what other career do you think you would have done?
I've wanted to teach since I was little - period.  However, I know that if I hadn't of followed my career dreams, I'd still be working for the in the Corporate World.  I dabbled working in the legal department - loved that.  I worked in the health care sector - loved that.  I also worked in new business - loved that.  So, something in the corporate world, behind the scenes....not actually related to the sales.

3. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were 6?

A teacher.  Always have, always will.

4.  Do you think everyone only has one soul mate or true love? Or are there multiple people for everyone?
 As much as I love my dear Hubby, and believe that we are meant to be together.... I can't go out on a limb and say that he's the only person I should have ever been with.  I've never really believed in one true soul mate.  I believe that a relationship depends on personalities, compatibility, and attraction.  I have had these things in common with several men.  I think back in my life, and I can think of a couple of the guys I dated as being men that I could have spent the rest of my life with.  Things didn't work out that way - and I ended up with the man that I am meant to be with.  I don't think it's because he was my destined soul mate....other situations come in to play.  

5.  Repeat question.  Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real life has been grand.  Job is going great.  I'm getting more in depth with the kiddos I'm working with - and seeing light bulbs go off every hour.  That's job satisfaction at it's finest.  While I may not believe in soul mates - I do believe that something brought me in to this job....some form of higher power, if you will.  I'm making a real difference in these kids' lives - and they're making a difference in me.  I'm getting to really apply the reason I've always wanted to be a teacher, one kid at a time....and it's the best experience I can ask for.

Also, Butter is home for the weekend.  I finished his room Thursday night.  I went and picked him up last night.  I was mean and told him that I didn't finish his room - and got him all prepared to see piles of trash and junk when he walked through the door of his room.  It was such a great surprise for him when he saw his room sparking clean, his toys out, and new art supplies on his desk.

Today, we're going to spend the day at my parent's house - so that Butter can spend some time with them before he has to go back tomorrow.  We still have no definite idea on how much longer he will need to be there - but I don't think it will be much longer.

Blog land has been meh.  I'm still I have been for months.  I have a new challenge starting next week, so I'm excited about that.  I've been babbling and sharing stories - but I'm having fun with it.  Hopefully this next week will be better.

Alright, that's it for me.  I hope you join in and do your own BYOC - then let me know you did so I can read it.

Till next time. ;)
