Ten on Tuesday (50)

This week’s questions come from my friend Molly (<– click to visit her). I would say that she is a real life friend, but she isn’t… yet. But don’t worry, we have it in the planner to meet. The theme of this week is Figuratively/Literally. Creative! I love creative themes!

Enjoy.

1. What keeps you up at night? (figuratively)
Unsure future… mostly revolving around money. How will we get another car? Will I ever make more than I do? Will I ever be able to be a stay at home mom? Are we ever going to be able to afford to update our house? Etc.

2. What keeps you up at night? (literally)
Currently, Jansen. Although he doesn’t really keep me up. He just wakes me up. I guess he keeps me up for about 45 minutes and then he mostly lets me go back to sleep.

3. Where do you want to go in life? (figuratively)
I just want to be a stay at home mom. A GOOD one. That’s it. That’s all I aspire to be. I want a good group of friends that Stephen and I have a good connection with and things in common. (Kids, faith, interests, etc.) I want my kids to be happy and healthy and have hobbies that they enjoy.

4. Where do you want to go in life? (literally)
Disney World, New York, California (wine country), Greece, Italy, France, Spain. Most of these are for the food. I also want to go on several more cruises.

5. Have you ever bit off more than you could chew? (figuratively)
Yes. I am really bad at saying no. I have this problem with feeling like I’m letting people down. Last year I actually backed out of a commitment for the first time. I had agreed to lead something at church but I was worn out and spread too thin, so I backed out. It was awful and wonderful at the same time.

6. Have you ever bit off more than you could chew? (literally)
Naturally.

7. Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence? (figuratively)
Sometimes, yes. Not all the time. I think there are families out there that have it better, although I wouldn’t swap lives with them. I may swap houses and bank accounts, but not lives.

8. Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence? (literally)
I don’t know. Our grass is pretty green.

9. If you can’t stand the heat, do you get out of the kitchen? (figuratively)
No, like I said before, I have a problem with no wanting to let people down. So if it involves others, I don’t quit. If it’s just me, sometimes I do. Which is why I don’t knit, I quit my vision therapy, I’m not in shape, etc. Some things are too hard!

10. If you can’t stand the heat, do you get out of the kitchen? (literally)
No. I just turn down the AC, drink some water, and whine about it. I rarely leave the kitchen.

Here’s Mr Linky!

(One of you asked me where you can find the questions before Tuesdays. See the Ten on Tuesday button on the right sidebar? If you click it, you can find the upcoming questions and all of the archives.)
