Monday answers to your questions – part III

It’s Monday again and I have more answers to your questions you asked me in this post as well as the follow-up reminder post.

Two weeks ago I answered the questions by IM Fletcher and Deb who asked me related questions about my flight attendant days. Click here to see their inquiries and my responses.

Last week I answered questions about my Swiss background initiated by BereavedSingleDad, Cupcakecache and Joni of Home Place Web. To see those questions and answers, click here.

Remaining questions will be addressed on future Mondays so don’t despair if you haven’t seen yourself mentioned yet. There were 16 people in total who asked me things, and I did take my time to respond accurately and honestly, which you can imagine does take some time.

So here is the next group of questions:

Small luxuries

So after my little meltdown yesterday the main floor of this house is clean(er).

I think I melted down because I was out for an appointment and some errands and came home to the entire house looking like a landfill. There is only so much of this I can take on a regular basis.. (blah)

Tracking apps: who is using them and are they any good?

I recently downloaded an app to track my cycles. I used to do this on a small paper calendar but I like the convenience of the app in my phone.

Here’s the part I enjoy the most:

Logging my moods.

But me being me I have complaints about this. 😛

Fruity ice cubes for summer drinks

How about a little something different today? I’m so tapped out with all the horrible stories coming at me from every direction…I’m feeling kind of uninspired. I’m also suffering from insomnia which, in itself, hasn’t been a bad thing; I’ve been writing fiction and getting better at it. Perhaps soon I will feel ready to share some of it…

But today, let’s talk about drinks. Spiked drinks. 🙂

children + communication = mom in looney bin

Yesterday I spent most of the day doing this.

It was actually kind of relaxing as my partner prepped the old, original doors by sanding them down and puttying the holes and scratches. All I had to do was use a brush and paint the doors with primer.

The Benjamin Moore down the street recommended we use oil primer to seal the old wood properly. The doors are original to the house (1949) and in dire shape. They look ugly too. So this summer, my partner decided to do something about them. He started but then got called away to work so I offered to do the priming.

It’s messy, painting with oil. I turned off the AC and opened all the windows to keep the air flow going, and luckily it was a pleasantly hot rather than oppressively hot day.

I took one break to walk Jasper, beyond that I was busy with the the doors.

At some point in the afternoon the girl child announced she’s going to her friend’s and she’s bringing an overnight bag because it’ll probably turn into a sleepover.

(Doesn’t it always? 🙄 )

Emerging from mid-life invisibility

Years ago something apparently insignificant happened to me. Since I’ve been thinking about it on and off for years, perhaps it wasn’t so insignificant after all.

I have some thoughts.

I am, after all, a writer and this is a blog and I like to hurl words about my thoughts out into the internet. 🙂
