self interviewing questions because I cannot think of anything to say, except: nightmares=crap and I just want some decent sleep.

1. What is your favorite smell?
Mmmm...chocolate..or Lemon meringue pie...or,or clean laundry dried in the sunshine.

2. Did you/would you/are you co-sleep(ing)?

Oh yes oh yes oh yes. When little berry was born, I was convinced she would be one of those crib babies. We had it ALL READY. In fact, I was in labor and freaking out, rewashing her bumper at 2am....but then that night we brought her home (remember, I had her at a birth center, we came home 3 hours after delivery) and Pappa Starbucks had his mother over. BIG MISTAKE!!! I was, and still am, angry about that. I had a natural childbirth specifically because it meant I could go home and have my baby to myself!!!
Anyway, we brought her to bed with us and she's been there since. It was wonderful in Europe when we were traveling. Pappa Starbucks hates it and has recently began sleeping in the guest room which is OK because we are all happy at last. Don't even get me started on the 'marriage bed' right now.

5. What's your favourite colour?

Yellow. I remember being a kid and loving green, like forest green, and thinking "I will never love anything as much as I love this deep forest green it is just so beautiful!!" but of course that was my brain on childhood, so it didn't stick.

How do you feel about saving money, things, etc?

I'm a big saver.I am a thrift-store shopper and a coupon clipper and we really do save money. With that being said, we don't have much in savings. The economy wiped us out several months ago and we haven't exactly found our feet yet, also, we just did the math and Pappa Starbucks spends approximately $1200 a year at Starbucks. Which makes me ill. He is not a saver, so our methods are often at odds.

What do you like most about the current season?

Oh, pickles! I LOVE FALL. I have the most vivid memories of fall leaves blowing around, changing into deep colors, the smell, the feel of the air, fall is just spectacular. I guess mostly I love the feel of the air, how I can breathe in big lungfuls (nice after such a hot summer) and never feel overheated. Of course, it's 96degrees today so that may not be a constant!

Most recent dream?

I've been having nightmares lately, truly disturbing dreams where my family is in danger of being eaten by a grizzly bear that we can't escape or that I fall in front of a train and I am holding my baby. I don't like dreams very much!
