Meet me on Monday!!

 There are a lot of bloggers out there that we follow but we really don’t know too much about.  Some of my favorite posts are when they answer questions about themselves.  In that spirit, Never Growing Old has started Meet me on Monday.  She posts 5 questions that bloggers can take every Monday and reveal things about themselves.  I really like this idea so I am participating.
Question 1–Crunchy or soft tacos?
Crunchy all the way!!  I don’t really like tortias.  I know I’m wierd.  Also I’m a purist.  None of this chicken taco, fish taco stuff.  Beans and veggies all the way for me.
Question 2–Do you scrapbook?
I used to but now I’m more into digitally scrapbooking.  I love that it’s less messy and I can just keep the file on my hard drive.  One of my favorite places for digital scrapbooking freebies is Digi Scrap Depot.  Check them out, you can get lots of great stuff!!
Question 3–Do you take any daily medications?
This question is hard for me.  I almost waited till next week to start this over this question.  But I decided that wasn’t fair.  I have fibromyalgia.  It affects every aspect of my life.  I take am supposed to take 11 pills a day, but I only take 3 without fail.  {I know bad}  I sometimes have a hard time talking about this because I have encountered such negativity.  I have had doctors tell me that my disease isn’t real.  People who dismiss me as oh that’s nothing or yeah yeah I have that too.  Others who treat me like I’m just acting like a baby.  You can see how I like to keep this information close.  Thankfully, my husband and kids are amazing!!  When I first got diagnosed my hubby said to me, “you can play the fibro card any time you want.”  He has been so great about it too.  There are times he comes home and takes one look at me and says go lay down and he just takes over.  I try not to let it affect my family too much.  I try to make sure that the house is clean and dinner is waiting every day when the hubbs gets home from work.  But I know it does affect them somewhat.  How can it not when it hurts to hug your kids??  Thankfully, they are completely understanding!!  If you would like to learn more you can go to the National Fibromyalgia Association.
Question 4–What is your favorite sound?
I don’t really have favorites in my life.  I feel like it boxes me in.  I love lots of different sounds.  The sound of the ocean, my children laughing, really good music, fireworks.  How can you pick just one? 
Question 5–Where were you  born?
I was born in good ole Utah.  But I have lived all over.  I am an Army Brat.  I spent 4 years in Germany.  Mostly through Elementary School.  So if you make a reference to something from your childhood and I don’t know what you are talking about, that’s why. 
Thanks to Never Growing Old for the great questions!!  I would love to hear your answers to them also.  If you have a blog feel free to link up.  If you don’t you can leave your answers in the comments.  I love getting to know new people don’t you??

    Oh, I love the ocean too…any way, any time, anywhere! You are brave to share your illness. I wondered about a question like that. I don't know much about it but I know it makes you very tired and achy. That is what I have heard. Sounds like you have an awesome husband.

    Another thing I know nothing about is digital scrapbooking. I have tons of digi photos…so hard to keep them organizes. I should check into the site you mentioned. Sandra
