Hi, guys. Sorry I haven't been around for, well, almost forever. I haven't forgotten about you. I just got out of the habit of writing, then couldn't think of anything I wanted to write. But this cool meme you all are doing got me. And so did isabellablue writing me a worried note. So I guess I'm back.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

NBPC - The Daydreamer

Nature, Background, Big Picture, and Color

You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.

House test

I like this--it sounds like me.



What the House Test Says About You



You are happy with who you are, and you don't have an inflated sense of self importance. You do your own thing quietly. You don't take up a lot of space.



You aren't against being community oriented, but it's not really your thing. You tend to prefer to focus on your family and not the neighborhood around you.



You are a calm, contemplative, and smart person. You take ideas very seriously.



You look attractive, but mostly because your rely on your natural good looks to get by.



You are moved by what's exotic and unique. You often have the mentality of a traveler, even when you're not traveling.




Your Score: Wizard


You scored 41% Size & Strength, 94% Morality, 41% Aggression, and 82% Intelligence.



You scored high in morality and intelligence, but lower in physical strength and aggression, which means you're probably a Wizard. Counted among the very wise and (with that one exception) good creatures of Middle Earth are the Wizards, or Istari. Though they appear as old men, the Istari are actually powerful Maiar spirits sent from Valinor to Middle Earth to act as caretakers of the land and guides to men and beasts. Their supernatural heritage means they're also the only line of defense against rogue Maiar like Balrogs. Though only Gandalf, Saruman and Radagast are named through the novels, there are two other Wizards at large in Middle Earth, quietly working to bring tranquility to their surroundings. Your polar opposite is the Urûk-Hai.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

This cracked me up! http://www.neatorama.com/2008/06/10/why-did-the-chicken-cross-the-road/

I'm doing ok here, except from some nasty asthma. Now that I'm on steroids, I can function ok.
My sweetheart leaves for Bolivia in three weeks. Now that it's so close, it's starting to feel real.

hi

I'm still here, but just haven't had anything I've felt like saying lately. I'm at work now and having a sucky night. My patient who came in cramping is soon going to deliver a much wanted baby at least a month before it has any chance of surviving. Not a happy night. *sigh*
Addendum: I just realized that I had asked my Bible study group to pray for me for strength and energy to get thru the night, since I'm up for 24 hours and wasn't able to take a nap and was already tired. Turns out that the best way was to forget about myself and think about someone else and their needs. Go figure. The night has gone fast.

You Should Live in a Small City



You are definitely an urban person, but not any old city will do.

You want a city that matches you well. For you, big cities lack individuality.

You prefer a smaller city with lots of personality, local culture, and history.





Your Personality at 35,000 Says...



Deep down, you prefer spending time alone to spending time with others. You enjoy thinking more than talking.



You don't spend much time thinking about your place in the world. You are who you are - and people can just deal with that!



Your gift is having a way with words. You know how to express yourself well.



You are inspired by what is possible. Real life is often too ordinary for you.



You are happy as long as you are given some personal space. It's important for you to have your own private life.

Spring

The window is open, and I'm hearing birds singing. There are patches of daffodils and blooming forsythia in many yards. Tulips should be coming up soon, but we won't see them because the deer will eat them as soon as they appear.
I didn't get called in on call last night, so I have a free day today. I washed our dirty kitchen floor. I'm leaving in a few minutes to go out to lunch with a friend.
My husband is happier now that he's completed some big projects at work and the pressure is easing.
I'm making some minor tweaks to my appearance, such as doing a little more with eye makeup (but still very subtle.) I bought two new dressy tops on sale at Macy's (keeping in mind the things I've learned from "What Not To Wear", such as emphasizing my smallish waist.) Yesterday I wore one of them to church, and at least five people told me I looked beautiful, and several asked me if I had lost more weight. Felt pretty good!

Retirement looks a little more possible today

I took the advice of some of my coworkers and visited the bank that holds my mortgage. They modified my mortgage from a 30 year (with about 24 years left) to a 15 year one. And at a much lower interest rate (over 1% less.) It only costs $92 a month more. We've been putting an extra $200 toward the principal each month in the hopes of paying it off before we're senile. Now, we'll make it $100, so we're not really putting out anything different than before, but we'll pay it off in a little over 12 1/2 years. That doesn't sound like so far.
I left the bank feeling like it was Christmas.

I'm still here, but I haven't been online much. Work has been too busy to allow me the luxury of chatting with you all. And the plan to get high speed internet has hit some snags. Let's just say I'll be back on after I can stomach the idea of spending a few more hours on the phone with the tech support guys. *sigh*



You Belong in the Baby Boomer Generation



You fit in best with people born between 1943 and 1960.

You are optimistic, rebellious, and even a little self centered.

You still believe that you will change the world.

You detest authority and rules. Deep down, you're a non conformist.


Well, duh!
