31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 31

31-day blog challengeWahooo! I made it to day 31! I hope everyone has enjoyed these little glimpses into my life. 🙂

Day 31: Weird quirk of mine

Oh my, what a way to end this huh? A weird quirk? I’m not even sure what to put here. LOL  Perhaps too insecure? Or too nervous about everything? Friends that know me, help me out. 🙂

I’ll do another series of these if you’d like…I enjoyed this!

Day 30: favorite comfort food

Oooh, there are soo many! I love chocolate, potato chips, pasta, basically any carb you can fathom. If I’m depressed, pass the can of pringles, cookies, or just a tall Pepsi.

Day 29: top things on my bucket list

Travel! With a kitty that needs watching and daily meds, plus no spare income, travel is a dream right now. Ireland and Italy are at the tops of my list, plus the American West.

Also to pen a bestseller is every author’s dream (at least to a point) but not sure of the fame that’d come with it. I’m content to have a great group of fans who love my work.

A different house is definitely on the list and in another region of this country.

Day 28: Last time I cried

This is too easy since I am in the throes of peri-menopause at the moment and my hormones are all VERY out of whack. Anything can make me reach the breaking point if it builds up enough. Whether that be writers block, being unproductive, lacking a job stress, lacking money stress…pick a topic.

Day 26: My five favorite blogs

Oooh, tough one! I’d say these round out my top five (I don’t read a ton of other blogs, but I try to read some at least):

  1. Lifehack
  2. Ladders site for job advice
  3. Quora, while not a blog per se, I get majorly caught up in the discussions
  4. My friends’ blogs…my other snippeteers most of all!
  5. Creative site blogs, for knitting most of all

Day 25: Best physical features

If you ask my husband, he’d say that my eyes, my hair, and my legs are my best physical features. Sorry I have no pictorial proof of this for this site, so just take our word for it. 🙂

Day 24: A difficult time in my life

I’d say without a doubt that my 30’s were the most difficult time of my life. I’d almost say the whole decade, but there were some bright spots in there…houses bought and decorated, degrees earned, promotions earned, ideas started. But it was also the time of the most medical issues with my now ex-husband, his family’s issues, financial issues like you don’t want to imagine, and mental issues on his part.

What was your most difficult time and how’d you get through it? Mine I trudged onwards and am now in a completely different state, situation, and marriage!

Day 23: Pet Peeves

Now here’s a hot topic to me. LOL  I have a serious pet peeve over people not responding to me. This goes back to having to be OCD about customer service (back in them olden days) and returning phone calls, voicemails, etc. This is PRE email times, mind you.

Another pet peeve of mine is talking over other people. It’s easy to type over someone, but talking over them, or as I say constant interruptus….oy! That gets me steamed! Stop, listen, evaluate, then respond!

Finally, my biggest is the sound of chewing or esp grinding your teeth. My bff grinds her teeth due to anxiety, but wow! Get a plate or amp up the xanax please! Oy….

What are your pet peeves? What drives you absolutely bonkers?
