When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own?

So far no blackouts have occurred since living in Brooklyn. Before when I lived in Queens I was fortunate in that the development I lived in had its own power plant so if the lights went out in the rest of New York I still have electricity. If that happened now I’d prefer a flashlight.

You are given $5,000 and the chance to exchange it for one of two envelopes. One envelope contains $50,000 and one contains $500. Do you make the trade? Why or why not?

I’d trade up to the envelope with $50,000, quit my job and travel for one year to every warm sunny island I could get to. I’m ready for adventure! Roadtrip!!

What’s your first memory?

I must have been around two and saw my baby brother in my former crib. He reached his hand out to me and I bit him!! He screamed, my mother ran in the room and put me out!! LOL!!  Fortunately now I’m well past the biting stage and my brother and I are very close.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something?

I have chronic insomnia. I rarely sleep well. When the problem first started the doctors put me on Ambien, however that has very bad side effects so I had to stop taking it about 2 1/2 years ago.  Now I just take Advil PM. When it does not work I write.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Made it through work last week. Awaiting my new bed which I hope will solve my back pain problems. So I look forward to getting relief from back pain. Am Also grateful that the snow is melting and the weather is getting warmer here in New York!

  1. So late in the night even the sheep would’ve gone to sleep and so, it’s always better to write without going anywhere near the fridge. Sleep well when the new bed arrives – hope you get relief from all pain!

      1. If you can’t skip eating frequently at least take to skipping, so that you can safely stand on the bathroom scale without breaking it and still be able to get into your old jumpsuits! Happy eating and sweaty skipping! 🙂

      2. Weight has never been an issue for me or my brother. Both our parents were thin people and so are we. I guess we have a fast metabolism. Other than foods to which I’m allergic or upset my stomach I can eat as much food as I want. My body has a certain set point and does not go beyond that. Anyway most men like meat on their women. I used to drink Ensures all the time to gain weight and now I finally don’t need to drink them anymore. Happy to finally have some junk in my trunk.

      3. You are lucky to have such a steely constitution! Most men do like meat on their women, including Non-vegans, the more, the merrier – point taken! Eat well and be happy while taking care of ‘the trunk’!
