Fed up

Earlier today I texted a friend that I had a list and I was going to be productive and get things done. After all, it was raining, gloomy and cold; what better time to stay indoors and get some chores tackled?

Then I saw the teenager at the table eating breakfast. My eyes almost fell out of my head… 😄

Bacon wakes the dead. And, apparently, teenage boys too. 😂

Inquiring minds want to know – 8 questions

Who wants to play? Let’s start with 8 questions:

  1. What is the first action you take when you feel out of control?
  2. What do you fear most?
  3. If given a chance to rebel against something, what would it be?
  4. Are you by nature a jealous person; why or why not?
  5. What is your favorite type of weather?
  6. Do you see yourself blogging for the foreseeable future?
  7. What is one thing you’ve always wanted to try and what has held you back from trying it?

I will post my own answers tomorrow.
