After a day off because my students were crazy and I went home for a doctor’s appointment and to snuggle with Sweet Husband, I’m working my way to getting caught up on my blogging. Again.
Today we’ll hit both yesterday’s prompt and today’s for the Kickin’ It Old Skool blogathon hosted by Jamie and Shannon Ridler.
Onions? Romance Novels? Tim Hortons Commercials?What makes you weepy?
What doesn’t make me cry these days? Commercials. The season finale of Sons of Anarchy when Jax and Tara find their way back to each other and then Tara is brutally murdered (spoiler…sorry. But if you’ve listened to anything series creator Kurt Sutter has said, then you know, there’s no happy ending here). Christmas movies. Good-byes. Frustration – feeling like I’m not getting things done. Being overwhelmed.
A Truth? A Constant? A Wisdom to Share? Your Superpower?What Are Ten Things You Know For Sure?
- Sweet Husband loves me to the point of ridiculousness. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for me. I’m pretty over the moon about him too. I get a little snaggly and grouchy some times, but I can’t imagine my life without him. I love the way we work together and I love the way we respect each other. It is a lovely thing and perhaps my greatest treasure.
- I’m a sucker for things that sparkle and shine – Christmas lights, fireworks, jewelry, dew on the grass.
- I’m a child of the water – if there’s a choice, I want to be in the water.
- I’m a child of the earth – I’m happiest outside and in the elements. I love to dig in the dirt, hike in the hills, feel the breeze on my skin.
- If you give me enough time to think about it and work through it on a piece of paper, I’ll figure it out.
- I have the best friends in the world. They are loyal and strong and fierce.
- When your soul needs soothing, there’s not much better than a road that requires your concentration and a playlist that washes over you and sets you free.
- Most of our school systems are designed to fail. Teachers struggle to do their best, hamstrung by bureaucratic mazes that dictate what and when without remembering that children are the reason why schools exist and salaries get paid.
- We are all much more alike than we are different. When we get past the superficial, it’s clear that most of us have the same goals – we just disagree on how to get there.
- I’m a writer.
