Ten on Tuesday

Here I am, back on our Ten on Tuesday schedule, sittin' at my desk, answerin' questions in my bedroom slippers.  This is the way it should be.

1. What keeps you up at night? (figuratively)
When I say mean, hurtful things.  I fret the most over hurting someone's feelings more than I do over anything else.  Because I am usually a very nice person.  Humble, too.

2. What keeps you up at night? (literally)
My brain.  And everything that happened in the day, week, month, year, and my entire life.  Also, thoughts of future jobs, projects and children, songs, mythical animals, and comebacks that never were but should have been.  I fall asleep with the TV on or I don't fall asleep.

3. Where do you want to go in life? (figuratively)
If I knew the answer I would be on my way.  At the moment I don't know, and I'm ok with just going wherever God wants me to be.  An excuse for being indecisive or lacking motivation?  Nah.  But I do have both of those excellent qualities.

4. Where do you want to go in life? (literally)
Everywhere.  I could live a nomadic life for a few years before settling down in Martha Stewart land with Corey and our retired racehorses, chickens and alpacas.

5. Have you ever bit off more than you could chew? (figuratively)
More times than I can count.  There were approximately 15 projects going on this summer.  I have conveniently forgotten what they all were.

6. Have you ever bit off more than you could chew? (literally)
Yes.  Cupcakes, in their entirety, are not made to fit into an adult sized mouth.  I will not elaborate, but it did not result in death by chocolately goodness asphyxiation.

7. Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence? (figuratively)
No way.  Except if we're talking about hair.  Smooth, straight hair is much better than my lame-o half curls.

8. Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence? (literally)
Oh.  Yes.  (sorry daddy) My family's lawn has never been known for its rolling waves of green.  More like its  fried pee patches.

9. If you can’t stand the heat, do you get out of the kitchen? (figuratively)
I sure do.  Because I am a wimp who has never really had to work hard.  I blame my upbringing.  You can too.

10. If you can’t stand the heat, do you get out of the kitchen? (literally)
No.  I take off my sweatshirt.
