Tagging the Blues
I've felt a little more "off" than usual this week, (my poor family!), and as you read through the tag you'll understand why. But to bring myself back out of the "blues", I just have to read Cathy's blog. Her humor makes me smile and because I was running a little slower this week, she caught and tagged me.
Here are the rules: I have to answer the following questions with one word answers...yeah, right! Sorry, I'm not very quiet even when I want to be (see #22), and I really blew it on # 8!
1. Where is your cell phone? Don’t own one
2. Where is your significant other? Work
3. Your hair color? Ummmmm, mousey brown (with “some” gray) unless I have it highlighted (Ok, I can’t answer in just one word!)
4. Your mother? “A-broad” (hahaha, I’m cracking myself up, but seriously, she and my dad are in Lima, Peru until March)
5. Your father? With “abroad”
6. Your favorite thing? Painting….oh, wait, Family ☺…can I have 2?
7. Your dream last night? Don’t remember dreaming
8. Your dream/goal? Living it, “….when I heard that there were artists, I wished I could some time be one. If I could only make a rose bloom on paper, I thought I should be happy!.....it seemed to me that I should be willing to spend years in trying.”
Lucy Larcom, A New England Girlhood, 1889
9. The room you're in? Family room
10. Your hobby? Painting
11. Your fear? I’ve become more “fearless” as I’ve gotten older
12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? With my family
13. Where were you last night? Home
14. What you're not? Good at Math
15. One of your wish-list items? A “studio”/ shed….I’m not picky, I’ll create anywhere
16. Where you grew up? Everywhere, USA ….my dad worked for the federal government and we moved around a lot.
17. The last thing you did? Painted
18. What are you wearing? Sweats
19. Your TV? Off right now, but just finished watching “Life with Father”, and oldie I checked out from the library.
20. Your pet? Roscoe, an almost 10 yr. old min schnauzer slumbering at my feet.
21. Your computer? Old….see keyboard pic. This was my husband’s laptop for his doctoral studies, but I’ve used it so much the letters have rubbed off.
22. Your mood? Quiet, solemn….probably due to PMS! (can’t believe I just typed that!)
23. Missing someone? Nope, don’t mind being alone right now (see 22)
24. Your car? Old and completely paid off.
25. Something you're not wearing? Shoes
26. Favorite store? Thrift
27. Your summer? Not long enough
28. Love someone? Husband/Children
29. Your favorite color? White (a blank canvas)
30. When is the last time you laughed? Today (see 22)
31. Last time you cried? Today (see 22)
Now I'm tagging 3 people ('cause Cathy did) and if they want to play along, it would really help with my "blues"! ....no pressure though. Patti, Jacquelynne, Lana
