Only Love Can Hurt Like This

1) In this week's song, Paloma Faith sings that she thought she wouldn't care if her lover left but now she's begging him to stay. Can you think of something you were surprised you missed when it was gone or over? it surprises me how much I miss my school routine over the summer break

2) Paloma obviously has a powerful, versatile voice. She's also a trained dancer. Tell us about two things you do well.  I am exceptional at creating clutter and napping

3) She was a judge on two British TV shows: The Voice and The Voice Kids. Do you watch competition shows (The Voice, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, etc.)? If so, are you any good at picking the winners? back in the day, I was an Idol fanatic and was excellent at choosing the winner early in the season

4) This week's song was written by Diane Warren. She's one of America's most successful song writers, having written more than thirty Top 10 hits. Think of your favorite song. Do you know who wrote it? this week I'm going with "Let It Be" which was a Lennon-McCartney song

5) She's made a fortune writing love songs, mostly from her Hollywood Hills office. Diane spends up to 10 hours a day in a room she describes as "cluttered," and admits it's an unlikely setting to write about romance, yet it works for her. Describe a setting you consider romantic. dusk atop the Eiffel Tower as the City of Lights lights up before your eyes, a sight I will never forget

6) In 2014, when "Only Love Can Hurt Like This" was popular, Joan Rivers died. Best known as a comedienne, she was also a successful businesswoman, promoting her jewelry line on QVC. Do you ever watch shopping networks? yes--when I need background sound on TV that I don't have to listen to

7) The Apple Watch was introduced in 2014. Are you wearing a watch as you answer these 9 questions?  no, I do not wear a watch--I don't like how it feels on my wrist

8) One of the best-selling books of 2014 was The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It won awards for best YA (young adult) fiction. Is YA a genre you often read? I used to read quite a bit when we had a school librarian that would funnel titles my way

9) Random question: What's something on your to-do list that you just can't get around to doing? I have some organizing to do since I moved in February  I just can't get up the gumption

I never miss my school routine. I like to stay up late and sleep in.
I like to listen to home shopping too. Sometimes it is just on, sometimes I like to get a laugh, they can be so funny sometimes. I also like to learn more about what products are being used for. I rarely buy things on home shopping, but I try to find out more about products I have already purchased. Sometimes when politics become too much for me, I watch home shopping and give the news a break. Loved your answers! Have a great weekend. ♥

Great song choice

Organizing and decluttering is hard. I can't imagine what you've had to deal with when you moved.
