Answer Me This

Wow, has it been a week already? Craziness. Well, here we go:

Answer Me This31. How often do you take public transportation?

I don’t take it often anymore. When we lived in Ottawa, I used it all the time. The city was set up for public transportation and when the bus drivers went on strike for 3 weeks, the city basically shut down. I wish more cities had accessible public transportation like Ottawa does.

2010.02.01-2010.04.01 087El Canal and the Fairmont in Ottawa. This is the way we worked the public transit in Ottawa.

Andy, however, takes the bus most days to work. I have to admit, taking the bus with 3 kids by myself, at this point, feels like it might traumatize me. Maybe in a few months I can entertain the thought. The kids love taking the bus, though.

2011.07.09dDoes this count as a bus? It’s full of crazies. (Montreal with family). So glad to be related by marriage to these folks!

2. How many cousins do you have?

On my maternal side I have 11 cousins, on my paternal size I have 4, though I haven’t had contact with them for years. We used to have big family reunions when we were younger on my mom’s side, and those were great. I’m the oldest cousin on my maternal side, which meant I babysat more than hung out with cousins. I don’t think anyone ever really got over that, but whatever, it’s always a good time when we get together now (which isn’t often anymore).

2009Munros094You know it’s a good time when…

The kids have 3 cousins on their paternal side, which they get to see relatively often. One set visit from Ontario a couple times a year and the other lives close to us, so we are lucky to see them more often. They also have 2 cousins from my side of the fam, whom they have never met.

3. Have you ever fired a gun?

No. And I have no desire or inkling to ever do so.

4. Do you ride roller coasters?

Love, love, LOVE roller coasters! !! I could ride them all day and be content. Unfortunately Andy does not share my love of roller coasters, and I usually have to drag him on one or maybe two, which he freaks on every time. But I am thankful he’s at least willing most times to freak out on them to help keep me happy (when we are at such parks). I think the craziest one I went on was when I was visiting a friend in San Francisco area. It was a drop-ride that I had to build up my courage to consider. Felt I could see the whole of the bay area from it (it was at California’s Great America amusement park).

2009Munros088This was at Disney, but just as epic cause I was with the crazies mentioned above. Family is like a roller coaster, right?

5. What’s your favourite flower?

Though I can’t get it as a flower in a bouquet, I love magnolias. Their scent is heavenly. magnolia-rustica-rubra

6. Are you allergic to anything?

I have hay fever, but that’s about it. And it’s the least-worst living in Saskatchewan than it has ever been, which is lovely.
