and you?

Here's a list of questions, you can play along if you have your own blog, or answer in the comments.

1. When do you feel happiest?

I think I feel happiest after I have been productive. I am happiest knowing that something was accomplished, and the more I have put off the project, the happier I am once I complete it. For instance, transferring all of our home videotapes to dvds. Pure thrilldom.

2. How do you take care of yourself?

I like to get an occasional massage, I do pilates, I get a pedicure once a month, and I read. I try and eat pretty healthy and I always have dark chocolate covered almonds on hand. I'm pretty good at knowing when I need to stop or say no to something.

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?

I think I'm pretty internally motivated. I get a project or idea in my head, and that's all I need.

4. What do you do for fun?

I LOVE going to the movies. I often go alone, which is a-ok by me. I love to read, spend time on the couch with my husband just relaxing. I love day trips with my kids, museums, farms, beach, hiking, I love seeing my kids experience things. Spending time with family and friends, most fun.

5. What intimidates you?

People who have everything together all the time. It's intimidating to see people who can do everything, and do it all well. I have pieces of me that are together, but as a whole, pure chaos.

6. What is something you're proud of?

Natural childbirth. Breastfeeding all my kids. My handball skillz.

10. Finish this sentence. If you knew me really well you'd know _____________.
