What am I afraid of?

I try my best not to be afraid, but sometimes you can’t hold everything in.

I’ve always had a fear of the dark. ALWAYS. Even in my own house, the dark still gets to me. There’s something about it, it just really gets to me.

I guess growing up being told how creepy people can be and that you can’t trust everyone you think you can, led me to the fear of being taken. Yes, taken like the movies.

And of course, losing loved ones and such. Losing things and/or people that I’m deeply attached to.

Anyone else have a fear of something random or obvious?

Favorite Childhood Book

I love reading. I love books. I love short stories.

I wasn’t always a huge fan of some of the books that teachers had us read in school. But going to the library and choosing my own book was always so exciting to me.

As I grew up, we collected books. Tons of them. I had Disney, Christmas, and many random ones.

I don’t know off the top of my head if I had ONE favorite. I have a hard time choosing one of anything, unless it’s a no-brainer kind of thing.

I remember loving The Bernstein Bears books, I owned so many of them and I would read them over and over again. I think I liked them so much because they had so many of them and they were all different.

I also remember loving The Little Critter books.

Maybe that’s why prefer to read a series over single book stories. I guess I never really thought of that, but it all makes sense now.

Anyone want to share a childhood favorite book?

Dream Job

We’ve all had that outrageous dream job that always seemed possible to achieve when we were younger. As we grew older, most of us never try to accomplish that dream. Some of us even forget about it because let’s face it. Life gets hectic sometimes.

I always wanted to travel. That was my dream. I wanted to travel the world and stay in the place that I fell in love with. Maybe somewhere tropical and an overall happy environment. After finding the place I wanted to stay, I would then find a job.

The job opportunities would differ depending on where I ended up. But I always dreamed of being a model or a photographer. I just love the atmosphere of it all. It’s where I feel happy and I feel as though anything is possible.

I have modeled and still continue to but the traveling part isn’t going to happen unless I have my little family with me. So life chose a different path for me. I wasn’t meant to be a big shot, famous person. I’m okay with that. I’m more than okay with being a happy mom and feeling like I’m going to go insane half the time.

Anyone want to tell me what dream job they had?

What they ended up doing with their lives instead?

Timeline of my day

Well, since the day is almost over I can tell you all about my fun filled Wednesday.

I spent the day with my snotty (his nose really is running) child. Since he’s sick he wasn’t up for doing much of anything. We watched a couple movies and cuddled. He played a couple cooking games on the iPad while I sorted through baby stuff.

We just had our baby shower Saturday and added another bedroom upstairs yesterday. It’s been a hectic couple of weeks but I can start to calm down because we actually have three bedrooms now. My son wasn’t too fond of the idea of sharing a room with his baby sister, although we never gave him that idea he knew there were only two bedrooms before the mini remodel.

I managed to get a sink full of dishes and a load of laundry done. On top of sorting through almost all of the baby stuff. My son went outside for a little bit until he realized he was hungry and wanted lunch. After he ate he laid down for a nap and actually slept great.

While he napped, I snuck a shower in. That was around noon. It is now almost 5:30 p.m. and I’m still in my robe. Pregnant mom life is the life for me.

Now I’m watching Scooby-doo with B and writing this blog. My other half just got home so I’m going to start chicken on the grill and relax with my little family.

What’s in my handbag?

Random junk.

Plus, it’s sad that so much random stuff is in there because I rarely ever use my purse. Not that it isn’t cute or anything (because it is). I just don’t like carrying it around, mostly because it’s something else I can lose in a store.

I randomly place my wallet, purse, drink, and usually anything I’m holding. I almost never notice that I’m doing it either. If I do remember that I set something down, then I have to retrace my steps just to find it again.

That’s why I love shopping carts. It’s harder to lose a cart than it is to lose your little wallet.

Back to the question, what’s inside the purse.. A lip gloss that I bought last summer, I think I’ve only used it two or three times. Avenger tissues, because my four year old loves them and they come in handy when he’s leaking snot. A few pens because I don’t like using other people’s pens in a drive-thru. A USB piece to charge my phone in a vehicle. Some random single wrapped vitamins. A car charger that charges a back warmer/massager, which I’ve also only used twice. Lastly, a package of gummies and crackers for emergency snacks on the go.

If I Won the Lottery..

If I won the lottery, I’d probably think it was a fake. Just like the time I won $200 on five $2 scratch tickets. I thought someone bought me the trick tickets, but they ended up being real. Since then I haven’t won anything over $20, but I’m not a regular scratch or lottery ticket buyer.

I would start by paying our bills in advance and adding a lot of the money to our savings. Those would be the top two things to do with that much money. I’m not a big shopper, I mean I do love shopping but I know my budgets and usually buy what’s needed for myself or my little family.

I would gradually spend the money on us, as in things we have wanted for a while but just haven’t had the extra money to spend. Maybe I could surprise my other half with extra money to pay for the garage he’s been wanting for the last couple of years.

Trying not to go crazy with a huge amount of money would be a little hard but totally worth it. I wouldn’t want to waste money on pointless things that wouldn’t matter to us in a couple of years. Money can go a long ways if you use it wisely and that’s what I would plan on doing.
