Share Your World – 2016 Week 44

Today I’m participating in Cee’s Share Your World challenge.

What was your favorite subject in school?

Grammar Police

In elementary school, it was reading and grammar. (Yeah, I know. I read my grammar book cover to cover every year. I still own two grammar textbooks.) In high school, it was chorus, which I loved so much I went to music school with the intention of becoming a high school choral director. (Then I discovered elementary general music, which we didn’t really have at my parochial school when I was growing up, and I switched my focus.)

If you could have a servant come to your house every day for two hours, what would you have them do?

If that servant could be a professional organizer, I would have him help me get control over my stuff. Greg and I have accumulated too many things over the last 42 years, and we’ve lived in this house for 28. We raised five children here, so I know the house is spacious for two people, but it’s so cluttered.

A few years ago, a friend of mine downsized to a smaller living space. She hired an organizer to help her whittle down her possessions. My friend calculated that she paid for 107 hours of assistance, at $25 a pop.

Where did you live when you were in the third grade of school?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

My husband and I both grew up in the same small town in New Jersey. We now live more than 2000 miles away, in Arizona.

In your opinon, list some places that are great for shopping?

My number 1 favorite place to shop these days is Beall’s Outlet. Prices are great, and they carry beautiful clothes and household stuff. I bought a quartet of juice glasses there yesterday for $3.

And, of course, Amazon.com. Excellent prices, unbeatable selection, fast delivery.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

My husband is experiencing some health and aging issues, and I am grateful for all my friends who are praying for him. My birthday is coming up Friday, and if hubby is well enough, we’re going out for breakfast and dinner.
