I was tagged by Elizabeth to complete the This or That Challenge. Twenty-two questions, and for each question I must make a decision; This or That.
Before I begin, let me introduce you to Elizabeth’s blog. The Uncustomary Housewife is full of recipes, life lessons and her stories of being an uncustomary housewife. She shares her journey through mental illness and I find her blog to be fun and inspiring. We have become quick friends in the blogging community and I hope that you will check out her blog.
So, here I go: This or That?
Question 1: Shower in the morning or evening?
Evening. This is mainly because I make sure that someone is home when I shower. I tend to get overheated and very tired so I have needed help a few times. But honestly, I miss a good soak in the tub!
Question 2: City center or close to nature?
Close to Nature. I was raised in the country and that is where I am the most comfortable. With that said, I am not really an outdoorsy person but city life is too fast for me. I like the slower pace and living where everyone knows everyone else.
Question 3: Bright colors or neutrals?
Neutrals: I struggled with this because it honestly depends on my mood. My closet has plenty of neutrals but I have days when I want a WOW pop of color.
Question 4: Spring or Autumn?
Autumn. Where I live it doesn’t last long enough though. It is October and we have been over 90 degrees everyday. But when it does cool off, I love fall clothes and wearing boots. But where I am, I could honestly wear flip flops and shorts year round.
Question 5: Mint or cinnamon?
Cinnamon. It is a smell that makes me think of my grandmother making apple pie or my mom making her spiced apple cake. It is just one of the smells of my childhood.
Question 6: Planned or spontaneous?
Planned. I am a planner but my husband broke my habit of planning everything down to the wire. Over planning increased my anxiety to the point of mental breakdown. My husband taught me to plan what has to be planned and let the rest just happen. But I am still a planner by nature.
Question 7: A movie at home or at the cinema?
Home. Another hard one. I can’t go to the movies because the brightness of the screen triggers my migraines. I also have a hard time with the TV for the same reason although I have my iPad and Mac set up just right so I watch movies on those.
Question 8: Espresso or latte?
Latte. Mocha Latte is my favorite but I can’t have it very often because chocolate is another trigger. But I do allow myself an occasional treat and it is worth the risk!
Question 9: Hugs or kisses?
Hugs. Why can’t I say both! Darn it, I want to be hugged and kissed! LOL In all seriousness though, Hugs make you feel valued and cherished.
Question 10: Spicy or mild food?
Mild. I actually like it in between and I think restaurants make things too spicy. I like just enough spice to accentuate the flavor not mask it.
Question 11: Leather or lace?
Lace. I love feminine things and I want to look feminine. I love dressing that way if an occasion calls for dressing up.
Question 12: Overdressed or underdressed?
Underdressed: Well, I live in sweats and lounging clothes on most days. When I am able to go out, I wear jeans and a nice shirt or t-shirt (depending on where I am going) or a dress if I am going to church.
Question 13: Adventure or comfort?
Comfort. I used to be the adventure person but my illness has changed that. Although, I still want adventure but on a low key sort of way. I need my adventures to be comfortable! LOL
Question 14: TV series or movie?
TV Series: Nothing has been the same since Downton Abby ended and I have rewatched the entire series several times! I love to binge watch so a TV series is perfect for me.
Question 15: Rock or country music?
Country. But I am really more into Contemporary Christian music than any other genre.
Question 16: Red or white wine?
White Wine. Moscato to be exact and I can’t mix it with my medication. So, sometimes I just want to have a glass of wine! LOL
Question 17: Working alone or in a team?
Alone: Don’t get me wrong, I like working with a team but there is always that one person that doesn’t pull their weight. I am not good at holding my tongue and it just doesn’t go well.
Question 18: Swimming or sunbathing?
Swimming: I used to be a lifeguard instructor in my younger days. I used to sunbathe but gave up because all I ever got was a sunburn, blister, peel and just be as glow in the dark white as I was when i started. Why be hot and sweaty if there is no pay off?
Question 19: Fast food or sit-down restaurant?
Sit-Down Restaurant. Eating should be a pleasure and I don’t think eating fast food is that at all! I like being waited on and served. Is that bad to admit?
Question 20: Matched or mismatched socks?
Matched. If I wear socks they must match. I rarely wear socks though…see question #4. By the way, where do all the missing socks go?
Question 21: Dancing or singing?
Singing: I have been a singer in some fashion my entire life. As a child I used to stand on the footstool and put of “performances” to any guests we had. Cute, huh? I sang in the choirs in school and at church I used to be on the Praise team.
Question 22: Phone or the internet?
Internet: My phone does me not good at all without the internet! I need internet and it better be adequate internet! I don’t want to deal with not having good internet. LOL . (I think I may have a little problem! LOL)
Well, that is it…all 22 questions answered! Thank you Elizabeth for tagging me to complete the This or That challenge, it was a lot of fun.
