So, last week I asked for suggestions for some blog posts. Lately I’m feeling quite tapped for motivation or even ideas. I HAVE ideas, I just don’t have to ability to sit down and type it all out…. because unfortunately my thought process is INSANE and no one wants to read a post that is 3,000 words. 😆 I could blog more about our daily lives but seeeeeriously we are boring. We do the same thing over and over and over again. Seriously. This summer should be better though when we can get OUT of the house….but for now the horrible cold and snow don’t leave us with many options. 😉
So, the first post in this question/answer edition is going to be in response to Alece. Not only would she like to see all of my aprons (a post for later FOR SURE….that will be a video), she would like to know some serious stuff as well. So, here we go…..
i want to hear your greatest fear and greatest joy and greatest aspiration. My greatest fear is a hard one. I am a very fearful person, something that bothers me a great deal. So much so that it hinders a lot of what I do vs what I want to do. I terrified of dying. Terrified. And yes, I believe in heaven. I believe I will go there when I die. The problem I have is not knowing ENOUGH about it. I need pictures. And first hand accounts. 😆 And that’s never going to happen, so… I am terrified. And the part about leaving my family, I hate it. On a less serious note, I am afraid of heights and airplanes. If I ever fly again I’m fairly certain I will need a tranquilizer. The last time I flew was 2002. September 12, 2002 to be exact. We won’t talk about it. 😆
Greatest joy is EASY….. the boys. Hands down, the boys. I cannot even express with words how much this is true. To understand the kind of joy my boys bring me, would be for me to pass on a deep down in my soul feeling. Just thinking about how much joy they give me makes me catch my breath.
My greatest aspiration? Why do you ask me these things friend?! 😆 It changes as time goes on. Right now, it is to be a great mom and wife. I think those two will never change actually. Other than that I aspire to be a good friend, a good daughter, to be a better sister. Something I am actually very bad at. I will say I have let go of a lot of my aspirations because they were unhealthy…. like my desire to be perfect in all things. Can I say I aspire to aspire less perfection??? 😆 HAHA! Figure that one and let me know. 😉
i want to know what you do when—in some rare moment of divine intervention—you have the house all to yourself. Divine intervention doesn’t exist in North Dakota friend…. well, not in the way of allowing me to have the house to myself. However, right now EVERYONE is in their rooms for naps. EVERYONE. I’m not sure that they are asleep, but they’re in there! So, this is as close as it gets, and I am doing what I would do if everyone was gone….. catching up on something I’ve wanted to sit down and do unbothered. 😉
i want to know what makes you laugh the hardest. I am not sure I can give a straight answer here….. LOTS of things make me laugh. I am glad I laugh a lot because it keeps things light and less stressful for me. I laugh at the boys a lot, but not the hardest. Jake makes me laugh a great deal. Those are my favorite laughs actually. I have a best friend from 8th grade that makes me laugh VERY hard. So so much, whenever we are talking I know I will have a “pee my pants” moment. Anything funny, HILARIOUSLY funny, makes me laugh the hardest. I like funny.
i want to know what you love most about yourself. yes, i said “love”. i don’t wanna hear the dislikes; tell me what you love. Hmmm, I’m thinkin I don’t feel very loving towards you right now. 😆 KIDDING. You know I love you, I say it a million and ten times a day. What I love most about myself….. that I laugh. Truly. Really. Okay two things…. that I laugh and love easily. Very easily. ♥
