Saturday 9: Call Me

Saturday 9: Call Me

1. Who is someone that phones you routinely that you never seem to be up to talk to, but you are not ready to push them out of your life? I have no one like this. If someone calls me, it means they were thinking of me and I always make time for them. I recall in my younger days getting calls from friends who needed to talk at 2:00 a.m. They would always start with "were you sleeping?" I always said, "No". If they needed to talk I was going to be there!!! I sat up, turned on the light and listened to their story, drama, heartbreak, good news or whatever. It was important to them, so it was important to me.

2. What is something that effects you deeply, to your core, no matter your mood or what else is going on in your life? Anything having to do with my husband. It could be that I felt ignored, or detached from him or he hasn't called and it is getting late. I worry about him! My mother died when I was young and my dad abandoned us so neededless to say, I have an abandonment issue and I am always afraid of getting THAT call from the police or the hospital telling me that something happened to him. No matter how much I try to shake it and tell myself that I can't worry about what hasn't happened, I get stomach trouble and have trouble focusing. Thankfully it doesn't happen often, averaging about 5 times a year but when it happens it changes me and I can't do anything about it.

3. Tell us of something that relaxes you and always makes you happy. Sex! It makes everything else go away if only for a little while.

4. If you could take the train from anywhere to anywhere, where would 'anywhere' be? Clarksville?! Hopefully someone WILL be waiting at the station at 5:40!

5. If you could look into the future, how far down the road would you like to see? 10 years? 100 years? A million? I wouldn't want to see the future at all. Not even 5 minutes into it. Why bother if I have already seen it, there is no reason to repeat it. I prefer surprises.

6. Did you do your shopping online for this Christmas, how did it go? Did things come in on time? Any significant failures? ...and if you didn't, will you consider trying online shopping sometime this year?  I did a limited amount online. I always use AMAZONbut this year I also used Best Buy. Everything was on time.

7. What people or projects are worth your time, money or effort? The only thing I feel is not worth my time is waiting on the phone to speak to a representative after punching in a bunch of numbers only to have the rep who finally picks up to ask the same questions as the automated system. I hate, loathe, automated systems.

8. Think back when you were in high school. Are you proud of the way you dressed, or do you wish you could go back and change it all? H.S, was not a great experience for me. I was always the new person and was shy. As for my clothes; I was never big on fashion so I feel fine about the way I dressed. Jeans and a shirt..timeless and classic.

9. Do any of your friends, family or co-workers know about your blogs? For those that do, did you tell them or have they stumbled upon it by themselves? My friends and family know about my blog. I have told everyone however, there are very few personal friends or family who read my blog. I think I bore them.


  1. I bet there's nothing boring about you. :-)

    Once again that you once again for your thoughts!!

  3. Fredamans, Awww thanks...I have always thought I was pretty forgettable.

    Clary, Huh????

  4. Great answers, I really like your first answer... you are such a wonderful friend, and don't I know it!!
    I totally understand your feelings of abandonment, but for different reasons, and miss my hubby if he is gone for any length of time because we are usually together.
    I get so annoyed with automated systems, too - I especially hate the voice activated ones, UGH!!
    I bet you were gorgeous in high school!
    And there is no way you are boring, plus your photos are stunning, so if your friends and family don't read your blog... screw them, their loss!
