1. What are your ingredients for a perfect Saturday?
My perfect Saturday recipe:
1 serving of “big breakfast” – biscuits, bacon, scrambled eggs
A handful of chores, making one feel productive
A generous amount of sunshine
Copious amounts of relaxing
1 serving of a movie before bed with a dash of a comfy couch and blanket
2. What skill do you wish more people took the time to learn?
Driving! Properly, I mean. Don’t merge at the last second, don’t cut people off, drive in the proper lane for your intentions. And never ever try to cut in when you made a mistake and realize you wanted to be somewhere else. Just go up and turn around.
3. What’s something you ate as a child you can’t stand now as an adult?
Hmm, that’s a tough one because there’s not many things like that. I guess I used to choke down lima beans when my parents made me but now I avoid them like the plague.
4. Something parenting has taught you? If you’re not a parent tell us one important lesson you learned from your own parents.
Oh so many things – patience, humility… how to set a good example, how to navigate unexpected and unpleasant situations on the fly… yeah there’s a lot of them!
5. Share a favorite quote or saying about mothers or motherhood.
“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” -Jessica Lange
It’s pretty true; you have to start thinking about them first or you fail.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
We are headed west to Pensacola this Friday and honestly, I am ready. Pretty much done here at work so I just want to get away for a bit. I don’t remember the last time we even went there. February maybe? Yes, that’s right. Because we ran the double bridge race. And it was COLD. Now it is much warmer, but where my parents are, they get a gulf breeze.
So next week, I’ll report back on that. See ya!
