Saturday Nine- Superstition

1. What are you superstitious about?  I don't think I am superstitious, however, I do believe in Karma.  What goes around comes around; kindness or meaness.

2. What’s the story behind one of your scars? I have a scar on my right chin. When I was 10, I was riding my bike home and turned around to wave goodbye to my friends and crashed into a mailbox. Not just any mailbox, the only bricked up mailbox on the block. According to eye-witness accounts the bike flew over the mailbox, I flew into the mailbox. I remember standing up and dropping to the ground, next thing I knew I was in the emergency room. I broke my cheekbone and had some eye injuries; as well my sinuses have never been the same. I was out of school for at least a month, and was swollen unrecognizably. My Mom stills tells the tale about the doctors in the E.R. thinking I was beat and did not run into a mailbox. My first stay in the hospital...good times...embarrassing. Note: The mailbox was unharmed in said incident. And also note, people always laugh when I tell them this story, no offense if you're laughing, thank goodness for helmet laws these days!!!!

3. What are three things that you would rather be doing right now? NOT waiting for laundry to dry, NOT getting up early for work in the morning, and NOT watching "When a Man Loves a Woman", geez it always makes me bawl uncontrollably.

4. What do you do when you're bored? Computer, Facebook, read, and making lists. O.K. so I just randomly made that up. What do you mean bored fool? What is bored when you’re a single Momma? Or even just a Momma?

5. What's your favorite thing to do? Why? Spend time with my kids ALWAYS when we have nothing to do and can just wing it. Park or zoo or just seeing where the day takes us. Those days don't come along often, but love when they do. It makes me appreciate them more.

6. What do you do when you're lonely? Call a friend or read the bible. God always speaks to what I need just at that moment without fail.

7. How do you measure the passing of time in life? By big and little moments. I.E. the birth of a child, and then said child going to kindergarten....booohoooohooo. Tissues please someone?

8. What would constitute "the perfectly lived day" for you? Witnessing human kindness, the love of my children, good weather, and small miracles; oh, and absolutely positively NO DRAMA!

9. If you knew you were going to die in a year, what would you do in your final days? Love on my kids to the point of smothering and take a vacation to Disney World with them. Spend time with my very best friends (good ol' 8th grade slumber party style) and write lots of letters to my kids for the important moments to come in their lives.

Have a great Saturday everyone!
