    I don’t understand! I just posted the longest comment EVER, in the history of the world and then it said it was blocked, and then it got deleted. And now I’m sad.

    I will save up my finger strength and come back. :(

  2. Curiosity says:

    Oh no! I’m so sorry! I HATE it when that happens to me. Ditching that stupid spam filter is on my list of eventual things to do when I have more energy, but I will kick it up a couple notches if it’s being temperamental like that. As it is, I still end up having to delete bucketloads of spam comments every day. Please do come back. I would love to hear what you had to say. :(

  3. If By Yes says:

    Yeah, I drew my tree when I realized I was spending WAY too much time thinking about how I would draw it, and wondering what different things would mean. I figured overthinking it might ruin it so I bit the bullet and just drew the tree!

  4. Curiosity says:

    I had the same thing, IfByYes. I kept wondering about little differences, but in the end just tried to go with what felt natural and right. Looking through the various trees, I think any variation I would have thought of would still have come out TOTALLY different from everyone else’s anyway, so those central things are probably the ones that say something about who I am compared to others. I probably didn’t need to overthink it so much. :)

    Can you imagine what it’s like for me to draw a tree now? I seem to be stuck making only Christmas trees now. They’re always happy, even Charlie Brown’s pathetic little evergreen.

    The Questions:

    1. Have you ever had surgery?
    Yep tonsils out when I was 14. (Sometimes they just take the adenoids out so you might still have your tonsils). Wisdom teeth pulled at 18. C-section at 33. That one was by far the best and worst surgery all at once. The freaky part of the c-section was that I had a big disconnect from the baby in the belly to the baby on the outside, I’m guessing because I skipped the pushing him out part.

    2. Ever ride in an ambulance?
    Yes. So embarassing. I fainted at work. I had only been there a few months and I faceplanted in front of a customer onto the cement floor. Lots of blood, no real damage. Turns out I became a bit hypoglycemic.

    3. How are you in a medical emergency? Panicked? Calm?
    I panic but get stuff done anyway. My husband is too calm. Um dude you just cut your finger off, can you show a bit more concern?

    4. Do you have a garden? Flowers or veggies?
    I wish. A tiny balcony we call the Terrace. I kill plants. Not intentionally though.

    5. When did you move out of your parents house?
    When I was 19. Not soon enough. Although I was pretty much taking care of myself from 14 on. I just had to start paying all the bills myself.

    I’m sorry you had a crappy sort of week :( I wish I could send you some energy, but I seem to be lacking some of my own right now!

    1. Have you ever had surgery?
    I had 2 of my wisdom teeth out when I was 18. I was awake for the whole thing and hated every minute of it. When it was time to take the other 2 out, they put me out for it. That’s the only surgery I’ve ever had (knock on wood) and I’m happy to keep it that way!

    2. Ever ride in an ambulance?
    Nope. Don’t think I really want to either! I don’t even think I could do an ambulance ride along cause I don’t do bad smells very well. All it would take is for someone to throw up and I’d be walking home.

    3. How are you in a medical emergency? Panicked? Calm?
    I haven’t had a ton of experience with medical emergencies (again, touch wood), but when emergencies of any kind crop up I’m a ‘doer’. I get shit done. I stay calm, keep focused and make sure everyone is where they’re supposed to be, doing what they’re supposed to do. I guess work helps with that!

    4. Do you have a garden? Flowers or veggies?
    I have a flower garden out front of my house. Every year I plant them with the intention of taking care of them and having a beautiful little spot that everyone can see when they pull up. Every year I kill the plants cause after July I forget about them. I have a black thumb. One year my dad and I both decided to grow tomatoes. He bought his little plants and I bought great big ones that cost more money. We had a challenge to see who would get the best tomatoes. I can’t remember who did, but I know I watered and fertilized them a ton!

    5. When did you move out of your parents house?

    I moved out at 18 for University. Then I came back. Then when I was in my late 20′s, my sister and I decided to buy a house together. Little did we know that my parents were going to split up and we’d end up buying their house. So technically, it’s my house now, but I grew up there.
