Amazing photographer & brilliantly creative, my friend Cyndi (Cfbookchick) never ceases to amaze me with her many talents & her kindness. She tagged me a little while ago and I suppose as I struggle with insomnia that this is as good a time as any to respond 🙂
1. Describe yourself in seven words:
Learning (I hope!)
2. What keeps you up at night?
Fears, some realistic & some not, many involving my children, others involving finances. Also, because apparently I’m getting older (I must have missed that memo, but my body did not), I now cannot drink caffeine past 2:00 PM or my body can’t sleep. And my mind wanders. Sometimes good thoughts keep me awake, like what I’d do with a million dollars. On many a night, my 2-year-old does the job.
3. Whom would you like to be?
I would like to be someone who does not experience depression and anxiety, someone who trusts & is innocent. At least for a little while.
4. What are you wearing now?
Navy blue pants made of tee shirt material, far too big for me but comfy & a gray & black striped long-sleeved tee. It is bedtime!!
5. What scares you?
The dark – or rather the unseen in the dark – frightens me.
I’m terrified of failing my children.
6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
I think the best thing, for me, is in sharing thoughts & ideas, learning new things from others’ blogs & having the opportunity to see life from different perspectives. The worst is that I find myself comparing my life, my skills, abilities and talents to others’ and find myself lacking, somehow inadequate.
7. What was the last website you looked at?
That would have to be my daughter’s school website.
8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would not have anxiety; then I would have an easier time trusting and have greater faith.
9. Slankets – yes or no?
Cyndi says these are like Snuggies. Before Christmas, I’d have said no, but my nine-year-old had asked for & received one as a gift. I’ve used it a few times and I kind of love the fluffy thing.
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
Cyndi and I have not yet met in person, but we were introduced by a mutual friend. Cyndi is one of the most big-hearted, encouraging, creative and caring people with whom I’ve ever come into contact. She is witty. Her photography inspires me.
I am not tagging anyone… if you are up to it, tag yourself – I’d love to learn more about the people I follow here on Word Press.
