monday madness

1. From bev:
Small town or big city?
Small town and wouldn't trade it at all.

2. From turtlemoonwave:
Do you have a favorite childhood memory, and if so, would you share it?
I loved going to my Grandma's house at Christmas time. It was always a lot of fun getting together with our cousins and Grandma would always buy DQ Dilly bars for the kids. We had a lot of fun playing on the farm where she lived.

3. From cat:
How do you calm down when something has really upset and/or angered you? Do you swallow it? Call a friend and rant? Go in the bathroom and cry? Punch a wall? Walk around muttering to yourself, complete with scary hand gestures?
First i count to ten...I know it sounds silly but that really gives you time to calm down. I just try to deal with whatever angered me. After i calm down i may call my friend for advice on how to deal with it.

4. From dna princess:
What attracts you to memes?'
I just think it is fun to do and i like to read other people's answers. You can get to know other people really well by some of the questions that are asked.

5. From mads:
How reliant are you on computers to get through your day?
Reliant on computers..... not really just like to get on the internet and blog or play games or chat with family.

6. From tizzie:
In a crisis, are you calm or do you panic?
I have really tried to keep calm during a crisis. Taking care of young children you really have to learn to keep calm otherwise you are going to have a house full of upset people.

I love small towns as well and hope to one day move back to one.

Have a Happy!

hmmm.. counting to 10. I should really give that a try. Because that can be done almost anywhere and it takes almost no time! Happy Monday... I played! :-)

I noticed that many of us have fond memories of our grandmothers. I have many happy memories of my grandma as well. When she was still alive, we had great reunions at her house in the province. Even though she's gone, the happy memories will continue to live.

My husband also taught me the technique of counting 1 to 10 whenever I'm upset. It really works!

Sorry I didn't get here yesterday! Better late then never right? :)

Anyway great answers! I think counting to 10 works.. I know a lot of people that do.. this might sound wierd but I used to watch thet Family Matters show and the father had anger issues and he was told to say " 3,2,1.. 1,2,3.. what the heck is bothering me" and when I get really made I say that cause for some reason it just makes me laugh so it helps calm me down.
