Re: Calling me "Hon." Is there a protocol?

OP--I don't mean to sound snarky, but--if being called "hon" was the worst thing that happened to you that day, I would think you had a nice day, all things considered.

Re: When do you get your flu vaccine?

I got mine as soon as it was available, as I do every year.

The last time I got the flu It was so bad I actually prayed for death. I don't ever want to be that sick, when it can be prevented again.

Re: Right now, I am thankful for...

I am thankful I was smart enough to go out with Mr. St. Clare when he ask me even tho he wasn't my type AT ALL. I'm thankful I was smart enough to marry him and I am beyond thankful I had my son.

I'm also pretty damn thankful for Edys Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream.

Re: Overall, how happy are you with your SO?

I gave Mr St. Clare an 8.

H's pretty darn perfect except for two major issues:

He's a hoarder and the house can get out of control quickly if I don't catch it.

He snores so badly we've had to d the separate room solution. And he won't go for a study.

Other than that he's close to perfect for me.
