Share Your World – 2016 Week 43
What are you really glad you did yesterday?
Sleep. I was really tired.
Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?
One floor level house. I have arthritis and it is getting more difficult for me to go up and down stairs.
Have you done something you truly want to do today?
Well, Let’s see. I’d like to win Lotto or Mega Millions but I don’t bet!! LOL!! Basically I just do chores on my day off and Monday is my day off. Laundry. Grocery shopping. Adulting 101. You don’t do the things you want to do but the things you have to do at least until you retire. Ask me again in about 2 or 3 years when I will be retired and hopefully I will have a different answer.
What plans did you have as a teenager that didn’t happen? Are you happy it didn’t work out that way?
I suppose like most Women born in the 1950s/60s I thought I would eventually settle down and get married. Then after that phase passed I dreamed of being an artist. I really Loved drawing and sketching. My latter career dream was to be a writer.
Yes. I’m glad I never married. I have a difficult headstrong stubborn personality and am not easy to get along with. My one foray into common-law marriage was a disaster. He was abusive and I was losing myself in him. Everything was his way of the highway, verbal, emotionally and psychological abuse. If it had been a legal marriage I might have been trapped in hell still. But I survived. Made something out of my Life without a man!! Power!! Got through and beyond the abuse. Life goes on.
As for being an artist well I work as a museum guard. That’s as close as I’m gonna get to that! I am a writer and one day God willing I will be a published author however I’m not holding my breath and it does not worry me. As I’ve gotten older I now realize that Life does not always work out the way we want it to. Roll with the punches.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Grateful that I made it through a harrowing work week. Looking forward to an extended Halloween weekend. I have this upcoming Saturday off. That means I’ll be off Saturday, Sunday & Monday!! Party time and best of all Stephen time!! I will be posting Costumes next week!!
