Still Standing Magazine recently posted a link up. It is one that I can fully get behind. The link up involves an exercise for us all to realize we are not our grief. Also, it is to help people within the pregnancy/infant loss community to learn more about each other, grief aside. I really liked this idea, and decided to jump in and participate!
If you would like to see the explanation of the challenge you can find it here:
I will post ten questions that were asked on the above page, and answer them.
1. What are you reading right now?
I am in a book club. The book I'm reading currently is for said book club. It is titled "And She Was" by Alison Gaylin. I am approximately 60% (avid kindle reader here) through the book and really hooked! It is a mystery. The main character has a unique disorder that gives her very detailed basically photographic memory. She is trying to solve a case that turns out to be connected to a case that is very close and personal to her! I can't wait to see how this one ends.
2. Sweet or Savoury?
Sweet. Always sweet. My sweet tooth is my demise. I enjoy anything that is sweet involved and have issues following correct portions on those items! I have recently been trying to take a stand against them and have been doing pretty well.
3. What is your favorite color?
Teal is my favorite color. I really began to like it a few years back and used it as an accent color in our wedding. Yellow has been rising in the ranks lately though. I like yellow particularly when paired up with gray.
4. What is your favourite food?
This is a hard one, because I love to cook and eat! I would have to say pizza. If it were "appropriate" for an adult to eat pizza daily, I would be that adult. I think because you can get variety, so it is the same thing but with a different taste. I heard about a guy who ate pizza for every meal every day for over a year. He spoke about how difficult it was to find someone to date him. He didn't find me soon enough! Probably a good thing.
5. Where were you born and where do you live?
I was born in the small town of Maryville, IL and have only moved a few miles away since. I lived in Maryville until just two years ago. I love this area, because it is so close to St. Louis. It is the best of both worlds. I don't have to deal with the hassle of a city daily, but it is right there when I want to do something.
6. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be?
Are we saying anyone? Can it be a person from the past? This is going to seem weird. I would have dinner with Abraham Lincoln. I have an odd fascination with him. I even got engaged directly in front of his Springfield, IL home.
7. Any bad habits?
I think anyone who says they don't have bad habits is lying. It is human nature to have at least one or two bad habits. I would say one of my bad habits is to leave lights/electronics/appliances on. That is probably one of the things Mike has to remind the most. Whether it is the light, tv, oven, etc. I just get distracted and go on with my day. Don't worry. After nearly four years together and over two years married, Mike knows to check the stove shortly after dinner.
