I rambled on so long in answering Cee’s Share Your World questions that I’m not going to make you suffer through an intro too. So, here we go:
What would you ask for if a genie granted you three wishes?
- I would wish for perfect health. I would love to be free of all my health conditions. I’m tired of everything being such a struggle.
- I would wish that dogs had much longer life expectancies.
- I would wish that Baby could come back from the great beyond to live out that long life expectancy with us. (And that she and Smarty would get along!)
I feel kind of bad for not wishing for longer life expectancies for cats too but, as much as I love Frosty, I’m not sure I could handle another 18 years of cleaning up after him. Sometimes I feel like I can’t handle another day of his floor-pooping, horrible-yowling, litter-spreading ways.
Then I feel terrible for thinking that because he’s so sweet!
What experiences are most meaningful to you? It’s hard to describe but it’s the moments that I feel really connected and awake. These moments usually happen out in nature where it’s quiet and there aren’t a lot of people around. I sometimes feel this sense of oneness and timelessness that makes me grateful to be alive.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? An archeologist. I’ve always been fascinated with history.
Complete this sentence: The best day of my life was…. I…can’t complete that sentence! It’s funny but the days where the greatest things happened aren’t necessarily days that I would want to repeat. Like the day Don and I got married. It was 93 degrees! And so very busy and chaotic. The day we brought Michael home was great but I was so nervous. The day I had Daniel the stupid doctor almost killed both of us and I was so drugged I felt like the alien on Alien Autopsy.
I think the simple days with my family have been the best, the ones where we were all together and didn’t have anywhere we had to be at any certain time. The rare ones where everyone got along and there was no yelling, punching, kicking, bloody noses or throwing of drinks in each other’s faces. (So, definitely not the day we took a whale watching cruise in Hawaii.)
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week I had appointments almost every day so I was just grateful when the week was over. This week I’m looking forward to the weekend. I hope there’s a break in the weather so Don, Smarty and I can go somewhere. I am so grateful for all the time we get with the old boy.
