Back to the writing prompts...

I do think these are fun - but I also sort of feel like I'm cheating - but I am not willing to skip two days this week so...

Which quality best describes your life--exciting, organized, dull--and why?  Can I say all of the above?  How could it not be exciting with all the running around I do - soccer this, football that, now it's basketball too, husband's in and out of town... it's always new and exciting around here - Then of course there has to be a certain amount of organization or none of it would be possible.  Husband keeps our calendars straight so that's his part of the organization of our life but he sometimes forgets some of the peripheral stuff - like have the kids eaten, or do they have water at practice, or will they need a coat or an umbrella?? - this is my piece.  And dull - well duh.  We go to work, come home, get homework done, go to practices, games on the weekends - lather, rinse, repeat.  blah, blah, blah.


Why is it important to be honest?   I think it's vital to say the important things honestly no matter how hard they are.  You only have one life and you need to be able to stand up and hold your head high and know you are being truthful.  Life is just too short to settle for things that aren't fulfilling to you in all ways - and I truly believe the only way to do that is to be honest - with yourself and with others.


What is something you do well?   I just asked Jason what was something I did well and he said "paint" as in draw and sketch things.  uh... I can copy things pretty well - I can certainly draw well enough that you'd know what I was trying to draw - but... that's about it.  It's good to be loved by your kids!

What would happen if there were no television? Why would this be good? bad?  Well, despite the fact that I'm sitting here watching the country music awards right now - I don't watch that much TV - I'd be perfectly fine if I could never turn it on again.  I bet childhood obesity would go down - and wow, isn't that a profound thought - could that one thing really have that big an impact - but I kind of think that yeah, it really does.  It's not the only reason, of course, but still - I bet it would reduce that awful statistic.  So it would be good!

What do you think the world needs now?  Peace, love, happiness and health - not necessarily in that order.

I agree, didn't we play outside more than our kids do? That's because we only had 3 channels on TV and none of them showed cartoons except on Saturday mornings!

I definitely watch WAY to much television, but there are some days (not very many) where it is never turned on, and I could definitely see finding happiness in that. I would be more productive, forsure. And it is the number one cause of childhood obesity, if you ask me.
