1. What is your favorite room in the house?
I love my bedroom.  It is a sanctuary for me.  It is almost always clean and neat compared to the rest of the house.  It is cool and attractive and quiet and most of the time no one bothers me when I am there.  All it needs is an easy chair.  I’m working on that.

2. Do you subscribe to any magazines or other periodicals?
Not any more.  There are a number I would like to read, but since the internet became so all-consuming even my favorites tended to go unread.  There was a time when I would be very excited to receive an issue of Mothering, or The Compleat Mother, or Southern Living, and many others, back when I had little kids and no Facebook for company and entertainment.
3. How do you feel about the sign of peace in Mass? Enriching? Awkward? Overdone? Just right? Some combination of the above?
We sit in the second row so oftentimes we have only ourselves to shake hands with. 🙂  I can’t say I have a strong opinion about it one way or the other.
4. What is your least favorite sound?
Oh, something boring and predictable like nails on a chalkboard I suppose.  Or several shrill voices calling my name (that would be “Mommy” or some variation thereof) all at once.
5. What was your favorite TV show (or shows) growing up?
Like most kids of my generation, I watched a lot of t.v.  I don’t know that I can remember what I thought my favorite was at the time (I watched it all, from game shows to soaps to sitcoms), but I have fond memories of The Carol Burnett Show in particular.  My family gave up t.v. for Lent when I was in the 8th grade.  I realized I didn’t miss it, and have never again gotten into the habit of spending long hours watching television.
6. What are your favorite TV shows now?
I really, really don’t watch t.v. now.  The last show I watched regularly was, I kid you not, The X-Files.  (Well, there was that unfortunate period where Emily got me interested in The Secret Life of the American Teenager.)  Right now we are re-watching The X-Files one or two episodes at a time every evening and having great fun with it (although the fun is about to end as we are starting Season Eight and if you are an X-Phile you will know exactly what I mean!).  However, Emily wants me to watch the new Outlander series with her.  It just started last week, and we watched the first episode.  She will be taping them so that I can watch with her when it is quiet and no kids are around.
And that’s all for this week!  For more answers, check out the linkup.
