This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this!
For your main meal do you prefer sweet and sour, hot and spicy, spicy and sweet, bitter, salty, bland or other? I have a love/hate relationship with food. I don’t often eat a “main meal.” I have to consume so much fluid in an attempt to control my POTS symptoms (it usually ends up being around six liters a day) that I am rarely hungry, so I just graze throughout the day. I have a tremendous sweet tooth, but I need to consume huge amounts of salt for my POTS (5-7 grams a day). So really, my ideal meal would be sweet and salty! Bring on the gluten free chocolate covered pretzels!
Where do you hide junk when people come over? Depending on what it is, the junk will either wind up in the basement or our bedroom. Our house has a pretty open floor plan, so hiding stuff is a challenge!
What daily habit would you like to introduce to your life? Sleeping at night and being awake during the day. Since I don’t work anymore, my circadian rhythm changes on a routine basis with my husband’s changing work schedule. I’ve always enjoyed being up during the night when everyone else is sleeping, but it’s not feasible for living life in general. I think some of it may be left over from my ever-changing hours from my job, which could be 6:45 am-3:15 pm, 8 am-4:30 pm, 2-10:30 pm, or 9 pm-7 am, sometimes all in the same month.
If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do? An aerialist on the trapeze. I’m not afraid of heights. I did gymnastics for a few years as a child and my favorite exercise was the uneven bars. And I have “flown” in a musical and just hanging out 15 feet above the stage floor was the greatest thing ever. (I played Wendy in “Peter Pan” when I was 14.)
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m super grateful that my favorite band, Rend Collective, announced part one of their North American tour schedule…and they’re coming to my city! So my husband and I bought pre-sale deluxe tickets, which gives us: “Early Entry, Exclusive Tour Laminate, Autographed Poster, Professional Photograph with Band, exclusive listening party to hear songs from the new upcoming album release (hosted by Rend Collective), and exclusive ‘crowd free’ merchandise shopping experience.” You have no idea how much I am FREAKING OUT about this! October can’t come fast enough!
I’m looking forward to tomorrow being Independence Day here in America, as we celebrate America’s 241st birthday! ?? And I’m totally stoked that the entire 3-hour broadcast of the Boston Pops performing at the Esplanade will be televised this year like it used to be back 15-20 years ago! Then the powers that be got stingy and only cut in during the last 1/3rd of the 1812 Overture (the part with all the descending chords right before the cannon fire starts!) I’m sooo excited; it’ll hopefully bring back great memories of the Independence Days of my childhood! (Including our official tradition of counting how many times Keith Lockhart, the conductor, changes his shirt during the concert depending on how hot it is!)
