Well my friends, it’s time once again for Monday Morning with Karen @ Write From Karen. This week’s hodge podge of questions are about happiness, breakfast foods, politics and growing pains. If you decide to play along on your own blog, be sure to comment and let me know and also link up at the main post here.
The September 29th Questions are:
1. How do you define happiness? I guess to me, happiness in the long term means being surrounded by people I love who also love me, succeeding at the things which are important to me and knowing I’m living the best life I can. Short term? Happiness can be anything – a pound lost, a good book gained, your child’s laughter – knowing my son is happy makes me very happy indeed.
2. What did you have for breakfast? (If not this morning, tell us what you had the last time you had breakfast). This morning I had a glass of strawberry carnation instant breakfast and half a mug of coffee (and a glass of water with my gargantuan multivitamin).
3. On a scale of one to ten, how sick are you of the presidential campaign? Do you talk about politics on your blog? What about in real life? Why or why not? I’d say I’m about 75% sick of this election. I have talked about it a bit on my blog, but not too much as it’s not a topic I’m normally giddy to read about myself, but being an election year, it is important and thus more interesting to me than usual. In real life, I do talk about politics, especially in an effort to further my own knowledge on subjects, but I try very hard not to argue about politics, because that can be draining and pointless.
4. What about your life today would surprise your teen-aged self? I think she’d be surprised to know that I’m not working, but rather a stay at home mom, and probably also a little surprised to learn that, in fact, her entire family WAS right and that because she kept eating “like that” and exercising “not at all” she would gain the weight eventually and have a very hard time putting the weight off (as evident by the weight still being here at present).
