This week we are returning to answering Ask Me Anything questions. Let’s do it.
Bonny asked: What is your proudest accomplishment?
I’ve done a lot of things I’ve been proud of, from getting my Master’s Degree in Library Science while working full time, to getting elected as a selectman, but I have to say the thing I’m most proud of is raising Hannah to be a strong and independent woman. I’ve mentioned before that I was raised by an alcoholic mother who was also raised by an alcoholic mother and as a result there was a lot of trauma and emotional abuse in my childhood and young adulthood. I was determined to not pass any of that on to Hannah. To never make her feel guilty for wanting to live her own life. To never expect her to fill my needs. To never subject her to the things I was subjected to. I didn’t always get it right but I broke the cycle and I’m really proud of that.
Becky asked: What are the fall back recipes you make over and over again?
My fall back is always comfort food. Meatloaf and baked potato, American Chop Suey, or chicken and rice. I almost always have the ingredients on hand to make any of those dishes. And, if all else fails, I make grilled cheese sandwiches.
Laurie asked: What is your favorite movie of all time?
My favorite movie is When Harry Met Sally. I’ve loved it since the first time I saw it and I think it’s still funny and charming and relevant all these years later. I don’t watch it often but every once in a while I have a craving for it and I’m never disappointed.
And that’s all for this round of Ask Me Anything. I hope you learned something new about me today. If you wrote a post to share, make sure you include your link below.
