{March 23, 2013}   What’s with the Weekends?

I guess I should have specified “Saturdays and Sundays” in my title, because Friday is never a problem. It seems like the past few weeks, I am fine with knowing what to blog about during the week and then once it hits Saturday, I just blank out! Even on Sunday, when the main idea is already ready for it, I still struggle with deciding WHAT to spotlight each week.

So is it because I’m all out of steam on the weekends or does my muse take vacations then? Your guess is as good as mine, because I have as of yet come up with nothing! 😦

So what do I do when I blank out? Find questions I can answer on my blog! So here are 5 questions I found!

1. What is more difficult for you, looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someones eyes when they are telling you how they feel?  This is a hard one…When I was younger and really, really shy, looking into someone’s eyes for any reason was difficult but now it’s usually not that difficult for either situation. It’s not so much difficult whether I am speaking or someone else is speaking, but the context of the conversation that would make it difficult. Say, for instance, the other person is being really mean and hateful…in THAT case, you want to look away. If they are being very friendly, then no problem. If you are telling someone you did something wrong or having to maybe disclose something embarrassing or very personal, it would be hard for me to look in the other one’s eyes. If I’m just having a regular conversation and everything’s cool, then again, no problem! It just all depends on the context!

2. Think of the last time you were REALLY angry. WHY were you angry? Do you still feel the same way? Driving in morning traffic..I try not to be angry when I’m driving but when people beep at me for not moving quick enough when there are tons of cars coming and not enough time for me to get out there….or they don’t use their signals and whip in front of me and I have to slam my brakes on…it’s just really hard sometimes. I’m obviously not STILL angry because it’s been over 24 hours but thinking of the moment does make me frustrated!

3. You are on a flight from Honolulu to Chicago non-stop. There is a fire in the back of the plane. You have enough time to make ONE phone call. Who do you call? What do you tell them? It would kind of depend on WHO was with me….If I was alone(which I don’t know why I WOULD be), then I’d probably call my husband. If my husband was with me, I would call my mom…and I could probably go on and on depending on who was with me. Can one phone call me a conference call so I can talk to more than one person? I mean, I could get the one person to dial the others? 😉 Yea, I am trying to cheat obviously!

4. You are at the doctor’s office and he has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? What do you do with your remaining days? Would you be afraid? I don’t know if I would tell everyone, but I would tell all the people that are closest to me because if it was the other way around, I would want to know. I would try to spend my last days doing the things I loved the much and I wouldn’t worry about cleaning or watching what I ate or sleeping for that matter! I would want to spend time with the ones I love the most and make the most of the time I had left. Yes, I would be afraid…not going to lie but I would hope I could eventually be at peace with it and live my last days to the extent that I felt ready to leave this earth.
5. You can have one of the following two things. Which do you choose? Why? Love and Trust. This has to be a trick question because you really CAN’T have one without the other…you can’t love someone without trust and you can’t trust someone without love! Love without trust means nothing so at first, I wanted to say trust but for trust to exist, you have to have love so there’s really NO correct choice here.

{January 31, 2013}   Let’s Break the Ice

Ok, ok, I admit I didn’t know what to post about today so I got a little creative and looked online….I already answer 5 questions every Friday, but I thought it would be FUN for me to answer some today, too! 🙂

Since not everyone that reads my Blog may know me as well as others, I thought I could use this post for a kind of “Icebreaker” post by answering some Icebreaker Questions. If you are unsure of what “Icebreaker” Questions are, they are questions usually asked in a group, just for fun, to get to know each other. Hope you enjoy, whether you’ve known ME for awhile or are new to meeting me and my blog!

1.What’s your favorite room in the house and why?  The Bedroom! And NOT in a naughty way, so get your minds out of the gutter! One of my favorite spots to read is in bed and the DVR in the Bedroom is all mine! 😉
2.Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.) Hmmm….Partly Cloudy with some Fog and chances of the Fog clearing later in the day and becoming Sunny 🙂
3.The greatest compliment I ever received was… “You inspired me” in regards to my dancing in a group as a plus size woman….It meant a lot to me to hear that I inspired someone that might have thought you had to be a size zero to get out there and dance but it’s also a great compliment anytime someone tells me I inspired them for whatever reason!
4.The gift I will never forget… is a little Angel figurine that came from a Dollar Store that my little niece Hannah gave me for Christmas one year when she was little bitty 🙂 It meant a lot because she didn’t have a lot of money so it was special to me that she spent some of her money on me.
5.If you were a car, what would you be and why? Well, first of all, I wouldn’t be a very happy camper cause a Car is not an exciting thing for me to be….If I’m being honest, I would probably be a Purple car(my favorite color) but an economical and safe, boring choice because even though choosing a fast convertible sounds fun…..that would NOT be me. I admit that I live a rather boring lifestyle and I’m NOT a risk taker
6.If they made a movie of your life, who would you want to play you? And would it be a comedy, a romantic-comedy, a drama, action or science fiction? My life would run across a lot of genres, a little comedy, a little romance, a little drama…not too much Action though and No Sci-Fi unless there’s something going on that I am out of the loop on! I’m not sure who would play me…..Melissa McCarthy would be hilarious, though AND she is a beautiful Plus Size woman! 🙂
7.If you could visit any place in the world where would you go and why? I want to go to Ireland! I’ve been to Wales and a teensy bit of England and I would LOVE to revisit them but something about Ireland sounds so magical to me! Oh, and I have a bit of Irish in my blood 🙂
8.What was your favorite food as a child? Do you eat it now? Macaroni and Cheese! I actually haven’t ate any of it in months because I am trying to eat healthier but I can promise that I WILL eat it sometime in the future, just rarely!
9.Share a quirky habit you have. How long have you had it? I just thought of one that might shock some people. When I sleep, I make sucking sounds like I am sucking on a bottle. LOL I’ve done this since I was a baby and I guess it must have come from falling asleep with a sippy cup. I can’t help it, although I pay for it cause sometimes I end up with blisters on the sides of my tongue from it. 😦 Luckily, my hubby thinks it’s cute!
10.Share a time when someone in your family did something that made you proud. I’m proud whenever any of my nieces or nephews accomplish something big. Most recently, my niece Grace won a Blue Ribbon for her Southdown Sheep and I was so proud of her for that!
11.Have you ever been told you look like someone famous? Who? No, I can’t remember ever being told I looked like someone famous BUT I have been told I looked like someone’s niece once LOL
12.What’s the worst thing you did as a little kid? (smeared cheese on the wall, accidentally called Japan, called one of your mom’s friends’ fat, inadvertently downloaded Pentagon files to your dad’s computer, etc.) LOL! I painted my whole number with Red Nail Polish and if that wasn’t bad enough, I also got it all over my sister’s vanity….it took my Mom forever to get it off me and you would THINK I learned my lesson, but NO! Another time, I painted myself all over with Black PERMANENT Marker! My Mom said I screamed and screamed as she scrubbed it all off me….Honestly, I don’t vividly remember these times so I’m glad I wasn’t traumatized or anything!
13.I really crack up when… I’m really sleepy….everything makes me laugh when I am really tired…well, at least at night when I have been up too long…if I get woken up early, I don’t laugh…I get grumpy THEN
14.What was your most memorable birthday? I’m going to say my 23rd? Hurricane Katrina hit ON my birthday and we lost power so I spent the day at home, in the dark…So it was the most memorable because of that BUT I also remember my sister calling us to tell me Happy Birthday and my little nephew, about 3 at the time, told me “Happy Birday!” and that just made everything all better! 🙂

Yea…14 is a strange number to end it on, but there you go! I am strange so why not? 🙂

{March 24, 2011}   What would YOU do?

Who else is a fan of the show, “What would you do?”  If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a hidden camera show where people are put in controversial types of situations and they see what people would do in that situation. I’m a fan of this show because I am always happy when I see someone stand up and do the right thing. Sometimes I feel like there are no good, brave people in this world left so it gives me hope when I can see that there ARE some out there.

In honor of that show, I decided to look for some What would you do type questions and answer them. Some are silly and for fun and some are more serious. You are welcome to copy the questions and do them yourself on your own blog if you want to. I would say you could also do them in the comments but it will be a long comment….feel free to post and answer the questions wherever you wish, just link back to me, please! : )

You won the lottery: I guess it would depend on the amount of the lottery but one of the first things I would definitely do would be to get lap band surgery….I know that’s probably selfish but it’s something I have wanted for awhile now and can’t afford…..I would then offer to help my family, such as my grandma, with any bills they need paid off and I would see about buying a house for me and my husband…it doesn’t have to be a mansion but I would like a nice house with at least a few bedrooms for future kids…I would try to help my friends in any way I could and at this moment in time, offer to help my niece with her upcoming well as pay for all my family to be there and fly back for Christmas
You got invited to be on a reality TV show: If it was one I wasn’t interested in, I would decline….it would depend on which one…
You caught a friend stealing from you: I would feel betrayed and question them as to why they felt they needed to steal instead of asking to borrow….if it’s something not too expensive, I think I would be able to talk it out and deal with it…if it was something really valuable or worth a lot more, then it might cause a rift between us but if it’s one of my best friend’s, I think I will still end up forgiving them….if it’s a friend that is more like an acquaintance, then it would be a deal breaker…
You witnessed a murder: I would go to the police and tell them everything I knew…no matter who did the murder…If someone is murdered, their family has the right to know….if I witnessed someone murdering someone I loved, I would have to fight myself from hurting them back
A random stranger offered you candy: Uh…I would either say No thank you or take it and throw it away later….lol
MySpace and Facebook closed: MySpace? wouldn’t bother me too much…Facebook would hurt a lot because that’s the way a lot of my friends who don’t have a WP can read my blog!
A genie granted you one wish: Right now I wish that ALL my nieces and nephews could live close to me
You lost your favorite possession: It would be hard to lose a desktop computer but if i somehow did, I would cry….
You found 10 dollars on the ground: If it’s outside in the middle of nowhere, I would pocket it….if it’s in a store or something, I would turn it into the office cause even though it’s just 10 dollars, it could be all a family has to survive on
Your date throws up on you: Well…since I am married, that would be my husband!….I would be grossed out, possibly get sick myself….change clothes and try to clean it up but there are worse things and I love him so i would forgive him
Someone cut off a chunk of your hair: AAAHHHH! It better be the split ends then! LOL…I would scream and freak out and be very upset! I would want to cut a chunk of theirs off as well!
Your favorite celebrity comes to visit you: I would faint….and then I would freak out cause I would probably be in my nightgown with my hair a mess, cause that’s the way life works!
You were stranded on an island with nothing but the ability to make one phone call: Could I do a 3 way call? LOL…..Well…I would want OFF the island, right? So I would try to call 911 or police or something and see if they could TRACE the call, see exactly where I was located and send help!

What would you do if you saw someone being bullied? I would try to stick up for them if I could because I personally have been where they’ve been and I know what it felt like to be bullied in front of many other people who just sat there and did nothing….Some of the people being teachers which is just shameful to me…How can you live with yourself if you knew that your lack of actions could possibly cause someone to commit suicide?

This last question was one that the show, “What would you do?” constantly uses in different ways. They will show people getting bullied because of their weight, their looks, their race, etc. and see if anyone steps in. Every time I see someone step up and stand up for them, it brings tears to my eyes. I look back on the years when I was bullied and wonder if things would have been different if anyone, even one person, had stood up for me. To me, people that stand up against bullies are angels in disguise. I never had an angel stand up for me so in the future, I want to be someone else’s angel if I am put in a situation where I can be. I don’t want a person to endure what I was forced to go through and I intend to teach my future kids to stand up against bullies as well.

Standing up against bullying is a major thing for me and this is probably NOT the last time I will bring it up in a post. I would love to know what are YOUR thoughts on bullying and would YOU stick up for someone who was being bullied? If you have kids, do you try to teach them how wrong bullying is?

What would YOU do if you knew your child was being bullied? What would YOU do if your child was the one who was the bully?

These questions make you think, don’t they?

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
