Woohoo, 29 days in a row! I didn't think I'd make it this far! :)
So I don't really have anything specific to blog about today so I went to the blogher site to borrow their writing prompt and I noticed that I've missed a lot of them, so I copied the past week or so and I'll catch up. Here we go.
What is the last thing you do before bed?
Usually take allergy medicine, check my e-mail and plug in my iPad. Heaven forbid it not be charged in the morning since checking my e-mail is also the first thing I do when I wake up!
Describe an heirloom that has been passed down through generations of
your family. What is its significance to you personally?
I don't think I have anything that has been passed down through generations. I do have a special heirloom though. When I was growing up my grandma had a china cabinet that had a lot of antique dolls in it. I used to love to look at all the treasures in that cabinet when I was a kid. A few years ago my grandma sold the house they had lived in for 50 years and moved into a condo and she decided to give her dolls to her granddaughters. She picked out a doll for each granddaughter and included a note about where the doll came from. I absolutely adore my grandma and I was so touched to receive that doll. It's something that I keep carefully stored in a box and someday I'll give it to Clarissa.
Do you enjoy being alone? Would you rather be around other people?
I actually do enjoy being alone. I almost enjoy it too much sometimes and I have to force myself to get out and socialize. I'm a homebody. I don't mind being alone or just home with the family.
Write about a piece of music that changed your life forever. What do
you feel when you hear it now?
That's a hard one. There are a lot of songs that have affected me in one way or another. There are several hymns that have special meaning to me. Pachebel's Canon in D was the song that first made me love classical music. We studied in in a humanities class and it was the first classical piece that I truly loved. I listen to it sometimes when my anxiety is bothering me because it's really soothing. Even some country songs evoke a strong memory. Anything sung by Vince Gill reminds me of an old boyfriend. The song Amazed by Lonestar was playing when we picked Josh up from the nursery at the hospital to take him home and when we hear that song Shawn and I always say "awww...remember when we took Josh home from the hospital and this song was playing?". Every time. It's obnoxious. :) I could go on. The soundtrack to my life is extremely long. It;s so long that it could be one of those compilations with it's own late night infomercial, only I'd be the only one who would buy it and I'd listen to it and say "awww...." when every song started. :)
What is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you, and why?
I'm not a super lucky person! I've never won anything in my entire life. My mother, on the other hand, is always winning something. She was born with the luck gene and didn't pass it on, I guess! If you want the honest I-know-this-is-cheesy-but-I'm-going-to-say-it-anyway truth, Shawn and the kids are the luckiest thing that have ever happened to me. And now that I think of it, that makes me pretty darn lucky.
