Lately I’ve been very “here today, not tomorrow” about sharing my world, but today it seems like a good idea, so here I go.
1. If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected? Years ago, I wore contacts for awhile, but, like Cee, I have astigmatism and they weren’t a perfect solution. I could not wear them to drive at night and finally they seemed more nuisance than anything – the removing, cleaning, reinserting, so I went back to glasses. They aren’t a perfect solution either, because they bother the bridge of my nose sometimes, especially when my sinus are misbehaving.
2. If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be? Some days, I would be a traffic signal on the fritz, constantly blinking in a series of green, yellow, red, back and forth, up and down. I get started, then I get distracted, then I come to a complete halt. Lately, maybe one of those intersection signs – where it shows crossroads – would be appropriate. I’m feeling the desire for change, for adventure. Yet, I’m not sure I want change or adventure. Hopefully our Girls’ Week at the coast the first week of May will quiet my discontent.
3. Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? School itself was not difficult for me – unless we get into the subject of algebra. What was difficult was so frequently being the new kid on the block, because I was shy and awkward.
4. Would you rather take a 1 or 2 week vaction with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice? This is a tough one. What I would prefer is to take a vacation with a rental car in the British Isles, then maybe wander over into Europe and go where the whim takes me. But – given the choices of an organized tour or a cruise – either of those would be good for starters, because either of those would point out places I’d like to explore more thoroughly. The tour would take me to those places I’d later rent a car and visit on my own – with a friend to share with, of course. The cruise I’d select would be a Mediterranean cruise, which would have to include some of the Greek Isles. Not sure two weeks would be enough, however.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful that spring has arrived, that our one snowy day in this past week proved to me that anymore tantrums Old Man Winter chooses to throw will be short-lived, that the sun shines warmth on my back. I am grateful that I have been awaking and able to get out of bed to enjoy these things. I am looking forward to more of the same.
