As I’ve mentioned before (several times), I have to have a PROJECT at all times or this old brain just can’t handle it. BOREDOM
is not CANNOT BE a part of my vocabulary!!!! During all this COVID isolation business, I
have organized & reorganized every closet, drawer, cabinet, & niche in
our house…even hubby’s underwear drawer! (Yes, I was desperate that day!) So now I’m on to my next project, actually it’s
one I’ve been working on for awhile now, off & on. It’s a QUESTION & ANSWER JOURNAL. I found the questions online, printed them
out, “cuted” them up a bit (you know what “cuted up” is…right?), and am now in
the process of answering them. I thought
it might be a fun thing for my grandkids to find one day when I’ve flown the
coop here on Earth. They can read about
me and probably laugh…but hopefully discover a lot about me that they never
knew. And hopefully learn some valuable LIFE LESSONS too.
I thought I would share just a few of the questions & my answers with you. One of the things I enjoy about reading other blogs is learning more about the writer on a personal level. So here goes…probably telling you more about myself than you would ever want to know!!!!
QUESTION: Describe your personality.
QUESTION: What jewelry do you wear everyday?
QUESTION: What jewelry do you wear everyday?
ANSWER: I “must” wear earrings EVERY SINGLE DAY! I feel naked without them. Of course, I always wear my wedding ring:) Gotta show all those eligible bachelors I'm unavailable:)
QUESTION: With whom did you have your first kiss?
ANSWER: I think it was Bubba Breedlove. I was in the 8th grade and he was in the 10th. We were both at school early every morning and we would talk. One morning he just leaned over and kissed me. Wow! My toes curled!
QUESTION: What are some things you remember your mother saying when you were a child?
“Go get a switch and make sure it’s big enough!” (Those danged things hurt, but they were effective!)
“Stop crying or I’ll give you something to cry about.” (I never understood that one!)“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” (Good advice, Mama, and I still remember it.)
QUESTION: Do you cry easily?
ANSWER: Oh my yes!!! Very easily! The older I get, the worse it gets. I cry at sad or sweet movies or stories. I cry if someone else is crying. I cry if I just think of something sad. I do HATE to cry though☹
QUESTION: Do you believe in extraterrestrial life?
ANSWER: I don’t believe in little green men or UFOs, but I do believe there are spirits around us. I think some are angels and/or good spirits sent to Earth by God to help do His work, but I also believe the Devil has his soldiers fighting to keep evil alive and well in our world. I’m not yet sure how I feel about “ghosts”. I’ve heard some mighty convincing stories that give me food for thought. But the verdict is still out!
QUESTION: What are some of your pet peeves?
ANSWER: How much time do you have???
*being blamed for something I didn’t do
*drivers pulling out in front of me (and then going 10 mph!)
I don't "usually" honk...but I sure want to!!!!
*people who want to hog the conversation (and make it all about them)
*teachers who are just there for the paycheck (but most do a great job!) (since I'm a retired teacher this is a passionate issue with me!)
*having to wear masks and not being able to see people's nice smiles!!!
(Note: I had to scratch one I had written...it was a political one!!!)
Well, that’s enough for now. I am really enjoying this type of JOURNALING. It has made me really look inside myself for some of the answers, made me do some soul-searching, given me food for thought. And I truly hope that someday “IF” my grandchildren take the time to read all this, they will do some thinking and reflecting of their own...and laugh a little too:)
How about choosing one of these questions and letting me know your answer. I love finding out more about you wonderful blog readers😊
And on one last political note…whether you are REPUBLICAN or DEMOCRAT, I pray that each and every one of us will do a lot of praying and will vote for the agenda that in our hearts we truly believe is right and good and what God wants for our country. I feel this year is the year not to so much vote for the actual "people" on the ballot (because they all have their good and bad points), but for the parties' agendas. What will be good for our country and what in the long run will be good for our children and grandchildren? We may not agree with each other and that’s OK…as long as we respect each other. May God bless you, your household, and the United States of America.
