    1. Do/can you eat peanut butter? If so, how do you like it?

    2. Using one word, tell me something positive about yourself.

    4. Do you wear make-up? What's your must have type of make-up?

    5. Do you have any tattoos? What are they?

    Thanks Caprice!

    1) I love peanut butter!!! I like it a lot of different ways but PBJ sandwiches are probably my favorite.

    2) Loyal.

    3) I never celebrated Hallowe'en but when the candy came on clearance afterwards I would always get some. Right now I can't remember what it was called though... ... hhhmmmm

    4) I wear make-up but not a lot. I always use Physicians Formula Mineral Wear. It's very hypoallergenic which is important because of my allergies.

    5) TATTOOS??? For many reasons no. One of the bigger ones is I am scared to death of needles. eeewwwww
    There is always light in the darkness...

    1. I like peanut butter. PBJs are the best but its gotta be crunchy kind.

    2. Honest

    3. My favorite Halloween candy- reeces peanut but cup, or snickers, twix

    4. I don't wear a whole lot of make-up but the one thing I cannot live without of is lip gloss.

    5. Tattoos- I don't have any but I have always wanted one. I have one that I have picked out and represents healing. I am not ready for it yet.....

    I love peanut butter but it has to be SMOOTH!
    I prefer pb and bananas - or - pb and sweet pickles!

    2. Using one word, tell me something positive about yourself.
    I have pretty dark brown eyes.

    3. Hallowe'en is coming up... what was your favorite Hallowe'en candy as a kid?
    I really don't remember.

    4. Do you wear make-up? What's your must have type of make-up?
    I used a green stick to tone down the blemishes then I lightly brush on Mineral Wear face powder. A quick stroke of blusher, lipstick, and I'm good to go.

    My dermatologist asked me if I would think about having a face peel. I've thought about it and decided I will do that! Now I just need to find a "slow" week to have it done.

    5. Do you have any tattoos? What are they?
    I have no tattoos, none. Albert says NO! I want a small tattoo of the Christian fish symbol on my left outside ankle.

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.

    LOL! You all are cracking me up! And you may be my own undoing, and I may have to get myself some peanut butter (even though my system doesn't agree with it).

    1 I live on it. It's cheap and doesn't seem to raise my blood sugar The funny thing is i don't really like it much and never ate it before i became diabetic.

    2 I can't really think of anythig positive. Everything that comes to mind is negative-- ugly, fat, stupid, crazy ect.

    3 mini candy bars

    4 I've never worn make up. As a teenager i used to buy it but never actually used it. I don't even buy it now although i was tempted by some Japanese makeup i saw online because of the cute tin it came in.

    5 I don't have any. I don't object to tattoos but i doubt i'd get one. I don't like being touched by people and can't even get a hair cut. Needles don't bother me at all as long as i'm the one
    doing the injection. I would need a diy tattoo kit and some talent for art.

    Thanks Caprice. I could use a hug today. I'm not doing well at all lately and just getting through the day is hard. I'm not even hoping to be happy anymore. I would just like to have a day were i'm not in so much mental and physical pain.
