I sat typing out the answers to this week’s Share Your World questions right as I was supposed to be sitting in the dentist office. I completely forgot about the appointment that I just confirmed Sunday evening. Oops!
What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane flight? The most memorable flight I’ve had was our flight to Maui in 2009. It was the first time we’d ever taken the kids on a plane and I was terrified, mostly because of a recurring dream that I have about getting on a plane and being hit with a premonition that it’s going to blow up as soon as it takes off. I cried a little as we took off, mostly because I worried about poor Baby Dog in the kennel. What would happen to her after we died in a fiery explosion? The flight over the Pacific was pretty uneventful but that didn’t stop me from wondering how we could possibly survive a water landing out in the middle of the ocean. The descent to Maui was very windy. The plane shook and rocked from side to side but I was distracted from worrying about that because Daniel, who was only nine at the time, was frantic with pain in his ears from the pressure change. When we got off the plane, I was so amazed that we were actually there which made me realize I thought dying in a fiery explosion was a more likely outcome!
How many bones, if any, have you broken? I may have had my nose cracked or broken by a baby horse running into me, but I didn’t go to the doctor so I don’t know if it actually got broken or if it just hurt like hell. I’m pretty sure I broke my pinky toe on the leg of the coffee table once but I didn’t go to the doctor for that either, since there’s really nothing that can be done for it.
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know) I could not have a talk show because I hate talk shows! Their very existence irritates me. I would, however, like to interview Christopher Columbus to see if he’s worthy of having a holiday on our calendar for discovering something that was already discovered.
Make a Currently List: What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating, needing, wanting, and missing right now?
Reading: I just finished The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. The ending made me cry more than any book I’ve ever read.
Watching: TURN: Washington’s Spies. A lot happened last week! Benedict Arnold’s treachery was discovered and Major Andre was captured. I know his fate but I’m still hoping that somehow he will escape.
Listening to: Bad Company. Don bought tickets to see them in September and I don’t know many of their songs. They were kind of before my time.
Eating: I can’t get enough spaghetti squash or blueberries right now.
Needing: Energy and ambition. That three week cough thing really wiped me out.
Missing: That is the big question for me right now. I have this feeling that something is missing in my life but I have no idea what it is.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m just grateful last week is over. It was a weird week. This week, I’m looking forward to a baseball-free weekend. As of now, there are no games on the schedule for the weekend. I’m hoping it stays that way and that we don’t have to make-up any of the games that got rained out. We only have three regular season games and two tournaments to go! I feel kind of guilty for being excited about that. With Daniel being 16, he probably will only play baseball another year or two. I do enjoy watching him play.
I don’t enjoy trying to get those white pants clean though!
