The Hardest MeMe Ever

1. What is the bravest thing that you feel you've ever done physically? Giving birth. I will add in without the use of significant drugs. It hurts like heck and you think that you might not survive it.

2. What is the bravest thing that you feel you've ever done emotionally? Same answer. The journey of parenthood is plagued with issues that drain you but it's those same issues that lift you up.

3. What one talent do you wish you had that you don't? Being able to keep calm in a difficult situation. (I tend to loose it)

4. If you had that talent what would you be doing with it? I could handle surprises better instead of looking back and going ... "Well, I could have ..."

5. We all have our reasons for blogging but what would be your ultimate goal for your blog or as a blogger? I use this blog to further my writing skillz. I hope to write a book someday.

6. What advice would you give a new blogger? Do it for yourself and don't write about work. It might cause a problem (ahem.)

7. Who are you three favorite blogs to visit (Yes, you can have ties and name more than three.) Other than the obvious three (Sassy, Amy & JennyJ), I visit these three.
Blackbird, Katiemorton, Kristen.

8. You can trade lives with any one person for a month. Who would it be and why? An astronaut on the space station. I would like to experience weightlessness and see the earth from a different point of view. (ignoring completely how terrified I am of heights.)

9. There's a fire and your family is safe but you have the chance to save any one item from your house. What would it be and why? Assuming the pets are safe too, I'd grab photo albums, they are irreplaceable.

10. You have the chance to go back in time and warn yourself before making a bad choice. What choice would it be and what would you tell yourself? The Astrovan and Ford Explorer we bought used. Both vehicles were plagued with expensive repairs and headaches we could have done with out. I would tell myself to just buy new and skip them altogether.

most of the players in sunday stealing answered giving birth as the bravest thing... I'm now double thinking whether I'd like to get pregnant. Lol

Your advice to new bloggers is dead on. Not only work, but family too. You gotta realize that one you've put stuff out there, you cannot delete it. Oh you make get it off your blog. But it still can be found...

I think you're the first person I've read that wanted to be as astronaut. Not for me but go for it!
Great answer. Happy Sunday!

My sis had her first kid au natural and yes, I would say any woman is brave as he** for doing that. I give it up to all the moms. Have a great Sunday.

Have you thought about scanning your photos onto an external hard drive or a laptop? I'm helping my mom do this with ten or eleven giant albums that she's saving.

Sassy said...

I've never given birth. Does painful cramps count? haha

Love ya, girl! You rock!

Amy said...

Ah yes, birthing. Let's just not go there, k? No meds, throw in foreceps, yeah, we'll just say OUCH. I'm with ya on that one.

I love these things about you, Mig. Astronaut? Never would have gotten that one right. LOL And your big regret is over a VEHICLE?!


You crack me up.
