Writer's Block: Look into my crystal ball

Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?

I can look at this in many ways. 

Financially, I should be in better shape.  Currently, I'm working on being out of debt(completely, including mortgage) in ten years.  In five years, I hope to have all the 'little' debts-i.e. credit cards-paid off.  Once this happens, I'll be a much happier and much less stressed person.

Professionally, I'll probably still be where I am at.  This may be a good or bad thing, depending on the day you ask me:)  I honestly love what I do, but some days I hate my job.

Personally, I'll still be married to the same man.  I may have more grandchildren-but if so, probably only one or two more at the most.  However, I will probably have more babies in my life at 2-3 good friends will be starting families in the next couple years.

Writer's Block: Your own toy story

Did you have a favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or doll growing up? If so, what was it and what happened to it?

I had a teddy bear that I paid 25 cents for at the neighbor's rummage sale.  I still have him...he's in the closet in the back bedroom.  Worse for wear, he's been sewn together a few times by inexpert fingers, but still loved.

Writer's Block: Super Bowl XLV

Are you watching the Super Bowl this year? If not, how will you enjoy the day? If you are watching, how will you be celebrating the game?

Of course!!!  I wouldn't be much of a Packer fan if I didn't:)

Actually, about to take a nap, will set the alarm for 5 pm, giving me almost 1/2 hour to wake up.  Then I will spend the time running back and forth to the kitchen because I won't be able to take the tension(unless the game is a runaway for the Pack, of course).

GO PACK GO!!!

Writer's Block: The start of something wonderful

What is your favorite opening line of a book, and why?

Dodie Smith's book I Capture the Castle.  The opening line is "I write this book sitting in the kitchen sink."  It grabbed my interest right away and to this date is the only opening line I can remember.

Writer's Block: Songs of the season

What is your all-time favorite album from any holiday, and why?

The answer is obviously Arlo Guthrie and Alice's Restaurant(aka, The Thanksgiving Day Massacre).  To say anything else would be wrong, wouldn't it?

But if I had to, I would add:

the music from Peanuts

George Strait's Merry Christmas Strait to You

and

Statler Brothers Christmas Card

Invictus

 

 



 
  
 
  
 
  
 
  
 
  Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Writer's Block: Talk the Talk?

With so many features available on mobile phones, talking is not always everyone’s first priority. What do you use your phone for the most? What features couldn’t you live without?

I would have to say it's a tie between talking and texting as to what I use my phone the most for.  Closely followed by its use as a clock and then the alarm feature.  

I could not live without the alarm feature.  Well, I guess I could live with it, but I'd run later than I do now:) I actually have a very nice dual alarm clock next to my bed, but I've discovered that if I set the alarm on my phone when the phone is plugged in, that I HAVE to get up to turn the alarm off.  Otherwise snooze is too tantalizing an option.
