Linking up with Kendra at Catholic All Year. I love this. I love superheroes, superhero TV shows, LOVE the Marvel Avengers universe, etc. etc.
1. What’s currently on your To Do list?
I am currently preparing for TWO trips this month. The first, a gathering of good Christian women who like to spread hospitality – the Mary & Martha national conference in St. Louis. The second in a super crazy road trip/college tour/family reunion/portrait session the week after. So my to-do list contains things like “get a haircut”, “finish sewing presents”. In fact, yesterday I wrote out my entire to-do list for the next two weeks, including lesson preparation for our homeschool co-op, panicked and binged watched “Poldark” instead. Swoon. Excellent use of my time, if I do say so. If I do have a super power, it’s my ability to watch completely inappropriate amounts of Netflix/iTunes/Amazon Prime in one sitting. I actually look forward to laundry piling up so I have an excuse for a good media binge. Not that I need an excuse.
2. Better type of superhero: magic/radioactive powers? Or trauma/gadgets/hard work?
I prefer trauma/gadgets/hard work – I’m Iron Man all the way. But did you ever notice trauma/gadgets/hard work is also closely followed by “huge pile of cash I inherited at remarkably young age”. However, I will say that I spend way too much time thinking about my own superpower of choice, which would be able to stop time. I would have a magic pocket watch that I could open, and every thing around me would stop, and I could move around in it. (I think I am remembering this from a short-lived 70s TV show). I could read ALL THE BOOKS and still make it to my oft-missed yoga class. But then I would still age while time was stopped, so that would be a bummer. Again, spend WAY too much time thinking about this.
3. Finding out if baby is a boy or a girl before birth: Good idea? Bad idea?
We found out both times. Girls. The doctor was not sure the first time, but the nurse was. We sort of panicked in the labor room, just in case it was a boy, as we didn’t have any boy names. Never did agree on any boy names. Not for either kiddo. Good thing we have girls.
4. Have you ever appeared on a stadium jumbotron?
Nope. Don’t think so.
5. Are you more book smart or more street smart?
Definitely more book smart. And I have the piles and piles of books to show for it. Although each time I travel with someone new, I am often amazed at how much they struggle with navigating airports or urban areas, so I guess I’m a little street smart.
6. Have you had that baby yet? (Feel free to skip this one if it’s not applicable to you.)
Um, yes, 9 years 1 month ago. Although given the current state of my middle-age expansion, I live in constant fear of someone asking me this question in public. Gah!
