Today I received an award from a fellow blogger – The Reality Blog Award. Thank you, Dianna Gunn: http://diannaswritingden.com/2013/01/14/the-reality-blog-award/ for nominating me.
The rules are as follows:
1.) Visit the blog of the person who nominated you, thank them, and acknowledge them on *your* blog.
2.) Answer the questions listed below and nominate up to 20 bloggers whom you feel deserve recognition. Visit their blog to let them know.
3.) Cut and paste the award to your wall.
So here goes:
1. If you could change one thing, what would you change?
I would create a tax levied on everyone in the United States and the money would go toward fighting cancer. It is a disease we could eradicate if we spent more money on research instead of spending billions of dollars on things that are less important.
2. If you could repeat an age, what would it be?
I’d go back to being seven or eight years old. I loved that age — living in a small neighborhood where you played outside with your friends all day, you didn’t lock your front doors, you walked to school and knew it was safe, you played with your pogo stick or rode your bike or played hide and seek for hours until your mom called you in when it got dark, you laid on the grass after spinning yourself dizzy and searched the clouds for pictures of something recognizable. Those were happy times for me when I didn’t have a care in the world.
3. What one thing really scares you?
Getting old. Years are flying by at a jet’s pace and I don’t know what I do on a daily basis. I’m trying to live in the “now”, not worry about my future, but my kids are suddenly 14 and 18 and I don’t know how they got from infants to teenagers! I want to do so much before I die and I’m afraid time will pass so fast I won’t get it all done.
4. If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
I would love to know what it’s like to be President of the United States for just one day — meet famous people, discuss important issues, visit unusual countries. But I wouldn’t want to have to stick to such a rigorous schedule. It would stress me out too much.
5. And now for my own nominations:
