Question? Do you make enough money?

Year 2012
Hubby does. I’m unemployed by choice right now. Self-employed artist and writer with no income. 🙂

Year 2013
Hubby does, but getting close to retiring and then uh oh. I’m an unemployed, by choice, writer. Soon to be looking for a job. 🙂

Question? Write down your last sent text message.

Year 2012
I delete mine all the time. I don’t really text a whole lot. Mostly the hubby and the kiddos.

Year 2013
I deleted it before reading this question. Usually don’t text much. No one really texts me much. 🙂

Question? What are you running from at this moment?

Year 2012
Small town life for awhile. Not because I hate it, just ready for a change, maybe it is mid-life crisis time. 🙂

Year 2013
How much weight I have gained since high school so therefore MIRRORS! 🙂 Working at that weight issue though. 🙂

Question? How many stamps are in your passport?

None. Zero. Nada.

Absolutely zero! I hope to change that in the near future. I guess I better have a job first. 🙂

Question? What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning?

Year 2012
Sleep in a little. Family time. Chill. Relax.

Year 2013
Chill out of course! I like to sometimes cook a big breakfast. Watch a bit of TV with the hubby. Watch one son bowl when it is bowling season. Watch the other son play football.

August 14
Question? Did you complete your to-do list for the day?

Year 2012
Heck no, I am a procrastinator.

Year 2013
Nope. Some done though. Yay! My lists are usually really long. I guess I feel I have to be a super hero or something. 🙂

I did get the emails read, the boys’ laundry done, went to the YMCA and worked out, read blogs, and wrote this blog. 🙂

Yes I have lists on my phone, on paper, and all electronics…still don’t get them done. 🙂

    More good stuff!

    Yes! Get that book finished. 😉 Bowling and football are here! Are you a bowler?

    • 2bcreativeblog · September 12, 2013

      I love to bowl, not currently on a team. My son Jessup (6th grader) is on a team and doing well! Love watching him. My son Adric (5th grader) and Jessup are both on a flag football team. I do like going and watching football but not a real big fan of tv watching. I did watch with hubby one night when KState was playing and then part of a Nebraska game. He is a college football fan. We don’t really watch Pro. What do you like? Do you bowl?

      • Maddie Cochere · September 13, 2013

        It would be fun to have youngsters to watch bowl and play football. Our son bowled in a league for a couple of years, but mostly he was into extreme biking. I dragged him and his bike around to parks all the time … so he could crash and hurt himself. I tried to be supportive. 😉 I bowled in leagues for almost all of my twenties. I love bowling but can’ t do it anymore because of the bad back. I like to watch golf when Tiger’s playing. I don’t have to pay such close attention, and can still write while he golfs. 🙂

      • 2bcreativeblog · September 17, 2013

        I bet the biking was fun to watch but nerve wrecking. 🙂 I hope to bowl sometime again, just conflict of schedules right now. I don’t watch golf but I did play on the high school golf team. It was more for fun and exercise. LOL. I was one of two girls that played back then. Maybe someday I will do it for fun. Hey golf is good for writing. 🙂 lol
