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.

SO we went down to the drawing station and went into the lab, and I was just so overwhelmed I turned around and we left. When the husband go...

Re: Do you regrets having kids?

My ONLY regret is not having more children, but I became quite ill when the kid hit kindergarten, so it seemed like divine interference. Our child was a joy to raise, and I have to admit that I'm thrilled he came back to live here for while when his former roomies got into drugs. I still mourn the c...
