Share Your World – 41

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Instant attraction? Sure. But actual love? Not so much.

Your first car?

A 1996 Saturn. Even though it was a few years old when I got it, it was one of the nicest cars in our school parking lot. I had a lot of fun in that thing and tested its limits in such ways that the idea of giving LM a car in several years terrifies me.

Who taught you to ride a bike? How did it go?

Even though my dad claims to have taught me, it was my then stepbrother. After trying to teach me didn’t go so well, my dad got pissed off and went back inside. My stepbrother (who was the same age, we were both 7) stuck it out with me for the rest of the afternoon and I was zooming around by myself by that evening.

Ugly and rich or beautiful and poor?

How about somewhere in between on both of those and I’m at where I already am —  a great family and a comfortable life? If not, I’ll take ugly and rich as long as I get to keep my husband and kiddos in that scenario. They’ll love me anyway.

What was the first dish you could cook?

Pancakes, bacon, and eggs for my dad on Father’s Day when I was 14. My grandmother wasn’t there to supervise, so after being surprised with breakfast in bed, he had to go finish cooking some of it (pancakes leaked with batter after cutting into them and the bacon wasn’t done). I did better on this when I tried again later, so I’m counting it as my first thing I could cook.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I had a lot to be grateful for last week. First and foremost was that we didn’t see much from Hurricane Matthew. One of the early models showed the hurricane coming up in a similar path as Hurricane Hugo did when I was 6 (the eye passed right over our county), and it took a while for out town to recover, so I was worried. I only wish things hadn’t been so awful elsewhere. Also, as I wrote about yesterday, I’m grateful that things are going so well for my son this school year.

As far as what I’m looking forward to in the week coming up — my husband is off all week, so it’ll be nice to spend some extra quality time with him. We’ve got a busy week ahead.

    I am glad that Matthew didn’t wreak havoc for y’all. We got a lot of rain and a brief power loss, but not much else, thankfully.

    I commented elsewhere that poor and beautiful works if you can get stuff given to you just for looking great, but now I wonder if rich and buying love/lust would work too? 😀

  2. Even though my family is on the south side of the US and I am along Lake Michigan, that’s my family, and when the time comes that I can no longer live on my own, I will be moving south to move in with family. They are the only family I have, and maybe ever had and family comes first. The bond stretches from the top to the bottom of the US, but it doesn’t break. 🙂

  3. Glad to hear you were unscathed by Matthew. We got a ton of rain (some places flooded, but not us). And last night the wind was wicked. I would choose ugly and rich if it meant being beautiful on the inside… not a stupid jerk.
