NaBloPoMo--Whoo! Missed some.

Well, life has been crazy for the past two weeks.  Things have definitely fallen by the wayside.  My hubby's trip to China took my attention away from some things for a while.  It is amazing the energy it takes to try to keep up with your hubby while he's in a foreign country.  Props to military spouses everywhere, because I only had to worry about my hubby for nine days and that was draining enough for me.  I don't know how you guys do it every day for such long periods of time.  

My hubby is back now and things are starting to get back to "normal", whatever that is!  We're moving along with the addition, slowly but surely.  It is going to take so many steps to start transferring stuff around the rooms.  We have to build shelves in my craft room before we can start moving stuff out of my current bedroom closets, shelves and book cases.  We have to move that stuff before we can move Jaycee's stuff into our closet.  And we have to move Jaycee's stuff before we can move our stuff into the new Master bedroom.  It is such a process!  My hubby was "surprised" that I hadn't moved the bed into the Master bedroom already!  Yeah right!!!  LOL  I've moved stuff before by myself.  Believe me, it's amazing what I can do and what kind of stuff I can move when I put my mind to it.  But, I would have had to carry the mattresses by myself around a corner, through Jaycee's messy bedroom and into the new Master bedroom.  Doing that of course would have required me to clean Jaycee's room so that I could even walk through it!  See. . . . . it's a whole big circular process. 

We were able to watch the football game on Saturday night~~Florida State vs. Clemson.  It was a happy outcome for me, although the beginning of that game scared me!  It's so nice that I'm able to see some of the games on TV now.  I miss so many because we get preempted by Big 10 games so often.  Some of our friends came over.  I think we all need a reminder that we're not in college any more.  They ended up staying until 2:00 in the morning.  Mike was hoping to get the insulation sprayed into the attic above the addition yesterday.  Let's just say that didn't happen.  But, he did get some work done.  

So, I've missed NaBloPoMo prompts for almost two weeks!!  These are the ones I missed~~I'm gonna leave short answers.  Cheater!!  I know.  Whatever.  It is what it is!

Who is someone you wish you could see again?~~This is when the procrastination of the NaBloPoMo began.  I could not answer this question while my hubby was out of the country.  I was really stressed out because there was so much anti-american stuff going on in the world and my hubby was literally on the other side of the world.  And at one point in his email to me he said that they weren't allowed out of their hotel for safety reasons.  That scared me!  But apparently, they just didn't want the jumpers to get into trouble before the big festival.  But, I just couldn't answer this question that day. 
And I'm still not going to answer it.

Do you think you begin more sentences with "I" or "you?"~~I think I begin more sentences with "I" right now.  I think I have been having some kind of reawakening that I am my own person and I am allowed to have my own life.

How much of the world have you seen?~~ Not enough!  I always wanted to travel everywhere.  My hubby said that if he gets invited back to China next year he wants me to go.  That would be nice.  He has been so many places I haven't.  I've always loved learning about other cultures.  I love all of the differences. Some day. . . some day.  As for right now, I've never been off the North American continent except to cruise the waters of the Caribbean.

What was the best thing you ever saw on a trip? ~~ Grand Canyon.  We've already discussed this!  :)

Do you prefer to have still photographs or videos from important moments?~~ I like to have both.  I really love photos because I can hang them on the wall.  A video?  Not so much.

Talk about your favourite photograph~~I don't have a favorite photograph.  I love photos from our vacation.  I had a collage poster made from our two week road trip out to South Dakota.  It was a phase when Jaycee used to make this really intense face all the time.  She always had this little scowl on her face. 
 And Logan couldn't make a smile to save his life.  He made a goofy face every single picture.  I love the collage because it's this compilation of so many great memories from the trip all in one place.
Oh my gosh!  I'm gonna pee in my pants laughing at their faces in these pictures!!

Do you think you're good at seeing the world through another person's eyes?~~I think that if I let myself see the world through another person's eyes I might lose myself and never come back.  I feel way too much when I let myself feel and I'm afraid I'd get buried in those feelings.

Are the eyes or the mouth the real doorway to the soul?~~I think the eyes are the real doorway to the soul.  The mouth could just be spewing words.  Sometimes the things that come out of people's mouths are not the truth.  To really know what that person is thinking or feeling you need to look into their eyes.

There!  All caught up. 

Now it's time to go organize coupons, wash and fold laundry and try to clean Jaycee's room!
