From Cee’s Share Your World…
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
There are times I think I am a very old woman and times I feel like a wee lass. I don’t know that our souls are so easy to limit by such a number.
So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?
Yes, but I am not sure I can remember the last time it was opened. I would hesitate to open it now because spiders. It is spider season and now everything is suspect. My husband has gotten used to hearing me say, no matter the object, “Shake it out for spiders!”
I once lived where you could find scorpions and spiders in your shoes or oven mitt. It just became a habit to shake everything out and inspect it before use. But, still…spiders.
Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?
I absolutely have to have time alone in order to keep my wits about me. One reason I love getting on the elliptical daily is for the ‘away’ time. Just me and the headphones with either music or some indulgence on Netflix. I generally gravitate toward documentaries, but I recently glued myself to the People vs OJ Simpson mini-series.
Name three things you and your spouse, partner or best friend to have in common.
My husband and I share the same eclectic taste in music from many, many genres. We also share a sense of humor and the same set of values. We are two very silly peas in a pod who once wore matching Chuck’s (both pairs are buried in the closet somewhere). We kind of dig each other a little.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last weekend I had the house to myself! I had not had a quiet house alone in a very, very long time despite my regular cravings for solitude in order to recharge. My husband took the kids to see family and I used the time to get some things done that required my attention without distraction. I enjoyed the quite time alone, but by the end of 48 hours I decided the house was jut too quiet without my people.
This week I am celebrating another birthday on this planet, but I have no plans. And, that is okay with me. I just want time with my family, enjoying the moments as they come.
