I’ve been busy the past couple of days – I feel like I’ve gotten a fair amount done, although I seem to do it rather slowly. It’s that cleaning chore, you know – the one I’d thought would be done before we leave for the cruise but I’m now reconciled to finishing it when we return. That’s how it goes.
Anyway, it’s late afternoon now and I have some time before I settle in to watch The Voice (on an east coast feed so I get it early) and have leftovers for dinner, so I’m responding to Cee’s weekly challenge to share.
1. Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers? Let me tell you up front, the selfishness is going to show here. I would take the $10,000 – if I were given $100,000 and could split it 50-50, I would be more than happy to give away the 50% anonymously. Thrilled, in fact.
and after a lifetime of working for a living, to support myself and my kids and not having been in a position (or wise enough) to educate myself to the degree where I could have been in a profession that provided a comfortable retirement, I am feeling justified. That’s called rationalization.
2. When you’re 90 years old, what will matter most to you? Probably the fact that I lived to be 90 years old. The fact that I have my faculties and am still able to care for myself, because I’m assuming that if I live to be 90 I’ll do it well. After that, my kids and my friends.
3. Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots? Oh, chocolate of course! Dark chocolate. Maybe with some peanut butter.
4. So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house? Unlike many things in my house, the umbrella is always in the same spot. So far. So far I have not decided another spot would be a better location for it, because when I make that decision, then hunting all over follows. What seems a “safe” spot for something today, doesn’t come to mind tomorrow when I want it. The umbrella has been safe and has lived here for the past nearly 15 years
That does it for today. I’m wishing all of you lives filled with enough.
