What are you really glad you did yesterday? In a word? Survived. Lynn had this crazy idea that she wanted us to hike Angel’s Landing in Zion and I stupidly, said sure. Imagine being 1,400 feet up the side of a cliff holding on to a chain link rope with nothing but a sheer drop below you? I quit halfway up convinced I’d rather live. Not Lynn. She continued on, made it to the top and back, and then freaked out on the way home, shaking and not able to get warm. She is OK today but we are both sore in places we didn’t even know existed.
Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels? Multiple levels with an elevator. Actually, Lynn would love to have one of those tiny houses but insists we need two bathrooms. I told her I could just go out back!
Have you done something you truly want to do today? Does waking up count? I live, I breathe, which are actually two things I truly wanted to do today.
What plans did you have as a teenager that didn’t happen? Are you happy it didn’t work out that way? Growing up in North Hollywood California, I wanted to be a famous actor. But I hated auditioning for school plays so I later majored in Theater Arts as a director. But, of course, I got sidetracked by life and never really regretted it.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I took Lynn on a mini vacation for her birthday.Well, while trying to check into the Zion Mountain Ranch, we found out that my debit card was declined. I do not use credit cards and had very little cash. So Lynn had to pay with her credit card for my birthday present to her. Our room and meals. Monday morning we spent the day in a Chase bank, where we found out I was a victim of Identity theft. Imagine if I had been traveling alone and found out I had no cash, no card, and no way of getting home? That certainly woke me up.
Thanks, Cee, for another group of fun questions!
