Wherein I do the Current Survey
February 25, 2018

DO YOU LIVE IN A HOUSE OR AN APARTMENT?
House

WOULD YOU SAY IT IS BIG OR SMALL?
Small-ish. It was really small when it was originally built, but Dad had an addition put on in the '80's, so now it's an adequate size for the 3 (4) of us.

DO YOU HAVE A WELCOME MAT?
Yes, at both the front and back doors.

DOES IT SAY SOMETHING?
The one at the front door says WELCOME. I brought it with me from my home. The one by the back door is just a scroll pattern.

DO YOU HAVE A DISHWASHER OR DO YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR DISHES BY HAND?
Yes and yes. We have a dishwasher, but it is only used at holidays.

HOW MANY PLANTS DO YOU HAVE INSIDE?
Zero

DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE THAT YOU PUT YOUR KEYS?
I keep them in my purse. Always have.

IS YOUR REFRIGERATOR STOCKED WITH ANYTHING?
Always. Milk, bread, eggs, cheese, condiments, pleasantries leftovers

WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR BREAD?
In the fridge

IS YOUR BATHROOM CLEAN?
Yes

WHAT IS YOUR BATHROOM’S THEME?
I call it "Disco A Go-Go". Dad designed and decorated it. The tiles are a soft green. There are pink hued mirror tiles on one wall, and the wallpaper is a 1970's abstract extravaganza of pink, purple, green, and metallic silver. I love the shower. It's the size of a tub.

HOW MANY RUGS DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR DWELLING SPACE?
One large area rug in the family room, plus a runner, and two indoor/outdoor rugs near the back door for catching dirty paws.

DO YOU KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS?
I've never seen the neighbors on one side. Mom just met the guy who's moving in on the other side. I've met the woman from 2 doors down when she's come after her dog. She also has a pet pig.

ARE THERE ANY STRAY CATS AROUND?
Not that I know of.

DO YOU HAVE A DVD PLAYER IN YOUR BEDROOM?
Only my 7" portable ( and my computer)

WHICH ROOM WOULD YOU SAY YOU SPEND THE MOST TIME IN?
Probably the family room (which is the addition Dad had built). The kitchen would be a close second

DO YOU HAVE A POOL OR JACUZZI WHERE YOU LIVE?
No. There used to be a hot tub, but where it used to be is now Mom's bedroom. We needed a third when I decided to move down here, and that was the only available space.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DVD THAT YOU OWN?
"My Foolish Heart", cause I never thought it would be on DVD

HOW ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE CD THAT YOU OWN?
Hard to pick only one. Possibly Dan Fogelberg Live at Carnegie Hall, cause it's the concert I wish I could've gone to. But I cherish all his CD's.

WHERE IS YOUR STEREO OR RADIO LOCATED IN YOUR HOME?
There's one in the living room, and a book box. Another in the family room. I have a clock radio with an iPod dock in my room. Brother has stereo equipment in his room, and Mom has a radio in her room. Not to mention our tablets, on which we often listen to music (probably more often than we play the radio or stereo)

DO YOU HAVE A COFFEE MAKER?
Yes

DO YOU HAVE AN AREA DESIGNATED FOR ALCOHOL?
For storing it? Or drinking it? We keep it in the dining room closet, but none of us are drinkers.

HOW MANY TELEVISIONS DO YOU HAVE?
Two. One in the living room, the other in the family room.

DO YOU HAVE STAIRS?
No

WHAT KIND OF STUFF DO YOU HAVE ON YOUR WALLS?
On my bedroom walls I have absolutely nothing. There's so much furniture in there, and so much "stuff" everywhere else in the house, that leaving the walls hard was the only way I could avoid claustrophobia.

WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR TOOTHPASTE?
In the bathroom, naturally. Next to the toothbrush.

DO YOU HAVE A DEN OR AN OFFICE?
No. I have a corner computer hutch in my bedroom, and the desk and printer are next to it, so that corner is designated as my office.....but I miss having my den.

DO YOU LIVE CLOSE TO ANY STORES?
Yes, there's a fairly large shopping area including Publix, Hobby Lobby, Petco, Tuesday Morning, a Hallmark store, and a whole slew of restaurants about 2 minutes away. There are other small stores in the general area as well. The proximity of shopping is one of the few things I like about living here

DO YOU HAVE A WALK IN CLOSET AND IF NOT WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE ONE?
Yes. It's not huge, but it's big enough. It's the first walk in and the biggest closet I've ever had.

DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING HANGING FROM THE CEILING?
Ceiling fans

DOES YOUR KITCHEN HAVE A THEME?
When we had it remodeled two years ago, I tried for a beach cottage feel. Light shaker cabinets, bright yellow walls and glass tile in shades of blue and green. I love the kitchen.

IS IT A PAIN TO DUST YOUR LIVING SPACE?
Nothing Mom does it!😉 If I have to do it, then yes. I hate dusting, and according to Mom, I always miss spots like the tops of the doors. Really. Who looks up there??? (Besides my mother)

WHAT’S UNDER YOUR BED?
A metal folding chair and leftover hardwood flooring. And dust bunnies. Lots of dust bunnies.

DO YOU HAVE A GAME SYSTEM?
No. Just my tablet.

HOW MANY TELEPHONES ARE IN YOUR HOME?
6 on the two landlines. Kitchen, living room, family room, all three bedrooms. Brother has his own landline, Mom and I share one. We each also have a cellphone, but seldom use them.

DO YOU HAVE A FIREPLACE AND IF SO DO YOU USE IT OFTEN?
We have a fake electric one in the family room. It looks pretty turned on, but doesn't provide heat. It's nice, though.

WHAT KIND OF MICROWAVE DO YOU HAVE?
I think it"0's a Panasonic.

DO YOU HAVE ANY FIGURINES OF ANGELS AROUND?
Given how many figurines and other crap we have, I wouldn't be surprised, but I can't say for sure.

DO YOU LIKE TO OPEN THE BLINDS OR CURTAINS OR KEEP THEM SHUT?
We open them when we can, but have to close them to keep the sun out. And we always close them at night.

HOW MANY COMPUTERS ARE IN YOUR DWELLING SPACE?
Two, plus three tablets.

WHAT COMPANY DO YOU USE FOR INTERNET ACCESS AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
We have AT&T for phone and internet. I don't know how much it costs cause I don't pay the bill.
