While I wait for the real “chill” of fall to arrive, enjoy another Sunday Social, a link-up hosted by Ashley and Neely. This week’s questions are a bit random, but totally entertaining and worth reading.
Besides the obvious essentials (food, water, shelter, and clothing),
what are *FIVE* items you can’t live without on a daily basis?
In no particular order:
- Charmin Ultra-Soft toilet paper
- toothbrush and toothpaste (they go together, right? Can’t have one without the other?!)
- A hair-tie because I *HATE* if my hair is touching my face or neck. Ughhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!
- Contacts and sunglasses (these go together in my world too … can’t have one without the other)
- my Kindle
* Toilet paper … obviously.
* Toothbrush and toothpaste … no need for explanation.
* People ask me all the time why they never see me wear my hair down and it’s very simple: I don’t like to be hot and I don’t like my hair to touch my face. I wear it up *ALL* the time. Daytime, nighttime, all the time, it doesn’t matter. It’s too long (I’m so overdue for a hair cut right now it’s ridiculous) and really curly, but I have no interest in styling it every day. That is such a waste of time to me. Remember, too, that I spent more than half of my life on a golf course wearing a cap and Oakley sunglasses.
* Speaking of sunglasses, I’m also very fond of mine. The ones currently atop my head are Dollar Store specials. I might ask Santa for a nice pair of shades, but I doubt he’ll bring them. I don’t really need them.
* I never imagined how much I’d enjoy my Kindle e-reader, but I never leave home without it in my purse or school bag.
What is your all-time favorite book and WHY?
You can laugh if you want, but the more I read 50 Shades, the more I understand and appreciate relationships. In some, we are broken, scarred, or damaged. But, in others, we are healed, restored, and, validated. Dismiss for a moment the “kinkery” and you are witness to the importance of relationships. The human soul needs them.
What do want to accomplish before the end of 2012?
Well, of course I’d like to cross every item off my Resolution List but that’s highly unlikely. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will receive a positive reply on an opportunity I applied for through my church. It would be an AMAZING experience and definitely worth blogging about — *IF* I’m selected to participate. I also have my resume/application submitted for a full-time job.
If you could go back and re-live *ONE* year of your life, which would it be and WHY?
I don’t like these types of questions because there are too many moments in my life worth re-living and it’s hard to pick just one or a particular year of my life. Our wedding day was pretty spectacular; so was the day I graduated from college. I’d like to go back to that golf tournament where I missed a short putt to win a junior championship; or learn how to sew from my grandmother and great-grandmother.
What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell them?
I’m an only child. Overly-sensitive. Relationships matter. If afforded the opportunity, I would be a modern-day Dr. Ruth. I over-commit myself because I have a difficult time saying no. I prefer snail-mail to e-mail. I’ve never been farther west than Odessa, Texas.
