Title to come (or this is it.)

Feb 10, 2018

It appears to be a few days since my last post BUT I've been updating my book blog as well, so I have been blogging. I plan to update that once one once a month with the books I've read that month. The link for that one is below.

First of all, thanks to anybody who read or commented on the last post. I'm feeling much better. I've been getting out of the house, and Anthony and I are working on a routine that makes us both happy. I'm learning how to solo Mom again. I'll be okay. I'll also be doing it for a while. Clint's going to be away working for longer than we'd like.

I'm writing this while Anthony naps, so it may not be finished until later tonight. 

I really feel like I want to post, and I have a few ideas, but today I want to do some prompts. I just want to write. I do want to do one about activities I've been doing with Anthony lately (a Mom post), but for now I'm sticking to the little details about me.

I found this on Pinterest. It's called Would You Rather. Conversation Starters 

There are a lot of questions. I'm obviously not doing all of them in one post. However, I am doing them in order because I don't want to pick and choose. I want to do the tough ones. I enjoy doing the 'get to know me' posts. It's a break from what I've been writing lately.

Here we go:

Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or always be 20 minutes early?

I would rather be early. I've changed a bit, but with Anthony, it's much easier being earlier. It also helps with his anxiety of others if we both arrive calm and happy. I admit that at times I'm a right on timer, or a bit late. I feel better getting somewhere with time to get comfortable. 

Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?

Anybody who knows me, knows how many photos I take. They're pretty important to me. Also, they're all saved in a place where they hopefully can't be lost. BUT if that doesn't work (and all the photos from FB and Instagram go missing), and I actually have to choose between money and valuables, or every photo...

 I'm having a lot of trouble with this decision. Obviously, money is important to live and pay mortgage and bills, and buy groceries, but also, I'd be heartbroken if I lost all my photos. They're memories. I have a fear of getting Alzheimer's in my future. In the end, the photos will be my valuables.

Would you rather be able to see 10 minutes into your own future or 10 minutes into the future of anyone but yourself?

I have no interest in seeing my future. In fact, I'd be quite annoyed to have to know what was going to happen in the future. I'd probably be quite obsessive about checking. I guess I'd rather see the future of anybody else. That way I can help somebody if they need it. To be clear, I'd rather not have either of these though.

Would you rather be famous when you are alive and forgotten when you die or unknown when you are alive but famous after you die? 

I have no interest in being famous. I want to make a difference in some body's life. Through my blog, through my life, through my novel(s) hopefully. However, I'll admit that it seems nice to be appreciated while I am alive instead of after I die. 

Would you rather go to jail for 4 years for something you didn’t do or get away with something horrible you did but always live in fear of being caught?

This doesn't really make sense to me. I think both sounded horrid. This is going to sound awful, but if I had to choose, I'd choose the second. There's an excitement about living in fear of getting caught. There's nothing exciting about actually getting caught. I wouldn't do well in prison. 

Would you rather accidentally be responsible for the death of a child or accidentally be responsible for the deaths of three adults?

Ugh, what? It's like a writer wrote these prompts. Maybe I'll find inspiration for a short story, but not through this one. It's too depressing. But I would rather have accidentally killed three adults. The fact that it was an accident doesn't really make it better. I just wouldn't want to be responsible for a child losing his or her life. You'd always wonder what that child may have been.

Would you rather your shirts be always two sizes too big or one size too small?

Haha. This is another one that has changed. I'm pretty sure in the past I would have said one size too small because for some reason, I was unaware of my size. I didn't mind showing off my body. I still don't care what my body looks like, or who sees it, but my life is WAY more about comfort now. Two sizes two big sounds way better, and way more comfy.

Anthony just woke up. So this is all I'm going to do for today. I'm glad I ended on an easier one.

Since this post has nothing to do with my Mom Life, and is about me, I will leave you with two wonderful selfies.

Awkward thumbs up for the win. (If this photo is one of the ones that gets lost, I'm actually okay with that.) Sharing anyway. 
Happy almost v-day!

Happy Saturday.
