Create a Connection- "Best and Worst"

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." (Charles Dickens, "A Tale of Two Cities)

Guest host for Wednesday "Create a Connection" is Deb at Red Shoes Rambling.

Best and Worst

1. What's the best place you ever lived? The house I live in now because I bought it on my own, then married Dave and he filled it with color inside and out. The worst? The apartment I brought my first born child home to. A weed from outside grew inside and behind her crib...can you say OLD and creepy?
2. What's the best place you ever visited on holiday/vacation? I fell in love with kauai with a girlfriend and then I brought my groom to be married on Bali Hai beach in Kauai. Seeing it again through his eyes was spectacular. The worst?
Waikiki on my first honeymoon because we missed our flight, I left my purse at the airport, we had bad trade winds and I got Bronchitis.
3. What's the best job you ever had? Working as a contractor for Apple Computer managing their office supplies. I supplied 2 million dollars a year of office supplies around the United States, France and Japan.
I had an assistant and a shared secretary...Loved it! The worst? The contractor I worked for because it was a cut throat, "man's world" company and had massive sexual harassment problems.
4. What's your best talent or ability? Giving advice and being an encourager. I tend to see solutions to problems on the fly. Your worst? Labeling people which leaves little room for second chances.I usually can size someone up pretty quick and can easily move on using that intuition. If I am wrong and start a relationship I tend to take alot of crap before I walk away.
5. What's the best decision you ever made? To leave my first husband. It was my first clean slate. The worst? Is following my first husband down the path to hell bringing two innocent lives with me.I have yet to forgive myself for his bad influence in their lives.
Bonus (so we can end on a positive note!): What's one good thing about you that isn't covered in the questions above, but that you'd like to share with the world?

I'm an open book...you can ask me anything!

Your answers were such fun to read. But the best thing of the whole post? That picture of the kissing fish superimposed over you two! So funny, Tammy :D

Forgive yourself about the first marriage. You were doing the best you could. I love the pictures scrolling down the side of your blog.

Another fun blog that let me see you even more clearly. So you can solve problems on the fly? Sounds like a promo for an advice column.

I really liked the bit about the weed coming and growing inside and behind your child's crib. That is such an incredible image - says it all. We once lived in a house like that. Very interesting answers, Tammy.
