I’m really enjoying Cee’s Weekly Blogging Challenges.
Tuesday’s challenge, “Share Your World” asks you to answer a few diverse questions; sharing a little about yourself and your thoughts with your readers.
Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?
No, to be honest, I have probably have a single dollar or a fiver wrinkled up at the bottom of my wallet. I’m all ATM now and never carry cash. This marks the vast gulf between now and my years as a bartender, when it was all about cash and when all my money had to be faced, sequential, crisp and organized (or I had a tiny meltdown.)
What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)
Even though I have two very amazing kitties that I love with all my heart, I do love dogs too and volunteer for a rescue so I get a chance to help and hang out with some pups.
I grew up with labs, shepherds and dobermans, but I would have to say that my current favorite type of dog is a foster dog, any foster dog, because they desperately need love, support and shelter while they find their forever homes.
I am very happy to announce that we are the proud foster parents of a young gentleman named Beau who we hope will become a permanent member of our family. He’s a black lab, around two years old.

He’s pretty awesome.
If money was not an issue, would you go on a cruise? If so where would you go?
Years ago, I worked for a travel agency and sold cruises, but never went on one, even though I had several opportunities. Should I go now, I think I would like to visit somewhere classically exotic in the Mediterranean – Amalfi, Greece, the Côte d’Azur. Of course, I wouldn’t say no to French Polynesia: Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea. Just not in typhoon season.

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?
I lived in a haunted townhouse in Old Town Arlington, Virginia for a few months. I was terrified to even be in the house and totally thrilled to get out of it. Weird stuff happened. Just saying.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful that our sweet foster pup has come to live with us. Getting up in the sub-artic air at the crack of crap each morning for bathroom runs has been a little challenging, but it’s worth it.
I’m looking forward this week to seeing a really old and dear friend, Colleen, who will be visiting from California with her husband, Gary.
Me, friend Heidi and Colleen on one of her last visits!
Thanks, Cee for the challenge and happy Wednesday to everyone!
