My world feels weird right now. Michael got the job he interviewed for a couple of weeks ago. He started on Monday. He starts work at 6:00 in the morning and doesn’t get off until 4:30, plus he has a commute that’s about 45 minutes each way. And with Daniel in Driver’s Ed after school, the house is quiet and empty for so many more hours than I’m used to. I guess it’s good practice for when my nest really becomes empty, which could happen in just a few years.
Anyway, enough about that! Here are my answers to Cee’s Share Your World questions this week:
Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink? I would start with room temperature water. I keep a glass of it on the counter at all times. I can’t drink icy cold water. It makes me cold, gives me cold headaches and it weakens the digestive fire and mine is already on the weak side. Sometimes plain water just doesn’t cut it though so sometimes I add a drop of lemon, lime or grapefruit essential oil and, when I just have to have carbonation, I get sparkling water or drink a can of caffeine free Zevia, which is a cola sweetened with stevia.
What made you feel good this past week? Spending time with my high school friends. It was so fun to catch up with them and I feel grateful that still talk to me after the nightmare I was in high school. I’ve been friends with Janise and Heidi since kindergarten and Michele since 4th grade.
Here we are the morning of our mini reunion. In a group photo, I’m always the dork tipping my head to one side. I have no idea why I do that!
When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot? Socks are my preference. My feet love being in socks! When it’s too cold for just socks, I put fleece slipper socks on over my socks. I can’t stand to wear anything with a sole when I’m in the house and I can’t stand it when it’s too hot to wear socks around the house.
Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold? Always cold, please! Heat makes me really cranky. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere that had summers longer than our average of 24 days a year over 80 degrees. I like cool, fresh air and I like being able to do things without sweating. I also like to be fully clothed, from my wrists to the tips of my toes. I hate shorts, tank tops and sandals. (Partly because my feet love being in socks!) Of course, cold all the time would suck. My comfort zone is from 60 to about 72 (Fahrenheit). But I would miss the cold if I lived somewhere that didn’t have it.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Like I mentioned, I’m grateful my school friends will still talk to me. Truly, I was such an insecure, boy-crazy, self-centered little nightmare in high school and even in to my 20’s. I wouldn’t talk to me, if I wasn’t me. 🙂 This week…hmmm…I guess I’m most looking forward to Friday because it’s our frozen pizza night. I’m having such a hard time thinking of things to cook for dinner.
