Here’s a meme I got from over at Karen’s:
1. What is bothering/stressing you out right his minute? Is this problem something you can solve on your own? Or will you simply have to ride the wave and see how it turns out? In the meantime, how are you coping with the stress – how do you unwind?
At the moment, we have glare ice on the roads from a snow storm that blew in yesterday. Today is also payday. We’ve been out once, because we were in dire need of dog food. It was nasty and people were being stupid. Of course, Oregonians don’t drive well in snow and are even worse in ice. And the city, who had almost a week of warning that this was coming, wasn’t really prepared. Even the main road hasn’t been sanded. Idiots! But, we will have to venture out again in a little while, and that stresses me out. The big plan as CP is working from home today, is that we will go about 2pm, when the sun has done all it can do to melt the roads and we will quickly grab groceries and then come home again. I am trying to not think of all the stupid people driving today that don’t know how to drive in these conditions and am focusing on Copper’s enjoyment of his first snow! It’s so fun to watch puppies experience their first snow!
2. When was the last time you made a compromise with someone? Tell us about it. How did that compromise turn out?
Well last night I made a compromise with Dude. It snowed Sunday evening and many neighborhood kids were out playing. He really wanted to go out to play, I wanted him to finish his dinner. So, we had a win-win as he scarfed down his dinner in order to go out and play in the first snow of the year. Maybe it was more in his benefit as it bent many rules. First, he doesn’t get to play outside after sundown. Nor does he get to play outside after dinner on a school night. However, he’s in luck as school is closed today!
3. What modern day convenience would you be willing to give up forever? Why would you give up that particular convenience and how would you give it up?
I have no idea! I don’t use a deep fryer ever, so I guess I’d give that up. Besides, deep fried foods aren’t good for you anyways.
4. If you found yourself locked inside a public restroom stall, what would you do? Climb over the door? Or crawl under the door? Tell us about the worst public restroom experience you’ve ever had.
If I were locked in a bathroom stall, I’d crawl under the door as I’m afraid of heights and don’t really have any upper body strength. I can’t think of a worst public restroom experience that sticks out to me. No funny stories, nothing that everyone else hasn’t experienced at some point or another.
