I'm stealing the questions from Kori.
1. If you could have one wish granted for 2009, what would it be..??
To keep my job. Really, all I can ask for at this point is the opportunity to continue to care for my kids.
2. What do you find the best thing about being a sole parent..??
That my X has no legal rights whatsoever to my kids. I make all the decisions without having to talk to him, fight with him, convince him, or involve him in any way.
3. ...and the most difficult..??
Making all the decisions alone. And that he still gets the title of "Daddy." A post of Laura's
got me thinking about that. He doesn't care for them financially, emotionally, physically, in any way whatsoever. So why does he get to go around calling himself a father, and the kids still call him "Daddy?" Just one of life's little injustices, I guess.
4. What is the one vice you have that you could never give up..??
Coffee. One time, I was supposed to go in for some tests, and my doctor realized after months had gone by without my doing so that it was because I was supposed to have nothing whatsoever. She made some changes and told me I could have black coffee before the tests. I remain eternally grateful!
5. Where or when do you feel most at peace..??
At home when the girls are asleep, and my cat is following me to bed. The coffee maker is set to brew in the a.m., the dishes are in the dishwasher, the lunches are made, the backpacks are ready for the next day, and the clothes are set out. It's the one routine that I have down consistently because it helps so much the next morning.
I know, I'm supposed to offer to interview you, but now that we're back in the full swing of things, I can't commit to that. Instead, feel free to steal the questions if you'd like.
