Needing more reminders that I need to get my butt on here and post, I'm trying to get more involved in posting with others. Tea Tuesday is my first step. Among other things, it's my way of reminding myself that I need to make time, even just a few minutes to sip some tea, to take a break ... and reminding others to take a break from all their hard work too.

And, also as a part of getting more involved, here's my first post taking part in:

1. What is your favorite Halloween candy? reese's cups - hands down! Maybe jolly ranchers too, but only the watermelon ones. I love those! And, surprising, that's about it that has held true through the years. Even the reese's cups I'm kind of over ... unless it's Easter and they're egg shaped :) I'm not a huge candy person.

2. Do you fold your socks? Not so much. I seem to have forever been a victim to the washing machine/dryer sock gremlin that steals one of a a pair. For this reason, finding all the buddies and folding them together feels like a lost cause. On some occasions where I find pairs after washing them, I might bundle them together, but that's about it. Honestly, for those that know and love me, it's common knowledge my socks are quite unique. Like this beautiful man, I like "spiced up" socks and it's a rare day that they even match. And, yes, I wear a lot of long pants to work :)

3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about? Debt. Oh my goodness, it happens so quickly and not just to those shop-a-holic people. School, holiday shopping for loved ones, bills, an indulgence or two and life just in general. Whoa! I wish I had been better prepared on that subject.

4. What is the most significant difference between you and your significant other? Organizational skills. He's all notes, to-do lists, shopping with coupons he's set aside and everything has a place. I'd describe my life and skills in that department as a total flippin mess with no order more along the lines of "organized chaos".

5. What are three words you would use to describe yourself? Right now? Caring, creative and tired! It's been a long week
