Share Your World – December 4 (6), 2017

Late again to the party, what can I say? Cee has invited us to share once again, and I’m ready to join in now.

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing? Ha! Which one do I not hate doing? Well, hate is a bit strong, but I dislike most (all) household chores. I think the one I dislike (okay, probably really do hate) is cleaning bathrooms. Or dusting surfaces that are cluttered – but I don’t like surfaces that don’t have some “clutter” (pretty things) on them, so it’s a lose-lose I guess. I make sporadic efforts to reduce my pretty clutter, but then it’s the “what to do with it?” problem.

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? I’m feeling challenged with the questions this week. I’m not sure I’ve actually felt passionate recently. At least not in a positive sense – I am quite passionate about much of what’s going on in our political world – negatively so, unfortunately. I am bewildered by what I see in our politicians as a lack of morality, integrity, honesty, and real concern for the truly forgotten people – the voters that cannot donate large amounts to these politicians. I have a passionate dislike for their behavior, and could become quite alive if they could just once do something good for the country and its people. Okay, getting off my bandwagon now.

How many times have you moved in the last ten years? Thankfully, I have not moved in the last ten years. When we moved here 18 years ago I said it would be my last move. I think there will be one more one day, but I don’t know where or when.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. I appreciated, and continue to appreciate, that we have had no heavy snowfall down in the valley yet. I would like the heavy snows to stay in the mountains, and to spare us at least until after my kids have come for the holidays and headed home again. We live in an area that is not easily reached when the snows fall and has limited travel options.

I think I’ll go fix myself a cup of chamomile tea now. The brain needs calming.

    Hmmmm…housework that I hate. That would be, like you, just about all of it. It just seems so futile. If I dust today it will be dusty again by the weekend. Vacuuming is the same. As is laundry and cooking and even yard work. The problem with housework is that it is endless, there is never a sense of completing the project. Unlike the things my husband works on which have a beginning and an end. And he can say he finished something. Well. He could if he actually FINISHED something. The point is there is hope that his work has an end. I know. That seems unfair. Maybe he has no hope of finishing either and that’s why so many projects here are half done.


    Felt most passionate and alive? Usually when I’m in DC working on truck stuff. Passionate does not always equate with happy…but it is important.

    When I was fresh out of college I moved at least once a year for over 12 years. I was always looking for the right place. And I get bored easily too. Some of the moves weren’t far, some were across the state. Since I got married 27 years ago we’ve moved once. I’m really really antsy now, but he’s a stay at home. So we’re probably here for the foreseeable future. And I just travel a lot to help with the itch.

    Great answer. I agree with you.

    We moved here 18 years ago, too. I said the same thing as you said. So far, so good. But I [sadly] agree that at some point there’ll be one more move.

    I’ve not been inspired to much of anything lately. Christmas shopping is about all I can handle right now. Housework? I vacuumed yesterday and felt it was a major accomplishment. Unfortunately, I’ve lost my passion for a lot of things these days. Probably because I’m mentally exhausted and passion needs a proactive mentality. I’m just trying to survive. xoxo
