Share Your World #19

1. You win a pet monkey but this isn’t just any old monkey. It can do one trick for you whenever you want from getting a pop out of the fridge to washing your hair. What would be the trick?
As much as I’m tempted to use my pet monkey to collect pet hair from the floors, furniture, and from the pets themselves, really, I’m like, is that monkey potty-trained? wtf do monkeys eat beside bananas? what are the sleeping habits of monkeys? how long do monkeys live? does my vet even see monkeys?
Nah, I got a Moo, three cats, and a dog. I’m good, thanks.

2. What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?
I ate and I stretched. Go me.

3. What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?
My closet is well over 50% blue. The rest is mostly white, although there’s some black, and a little gray. I rarely wear actual color. On any given day, I want to wear white, but sometimes I need to preserve energy.

4. Complete this sentence:  When I travel I love to…explore. I don’t like itineraries. I like to cultivate authentic experiences.


Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m most grateful for the people who wrote or told me my writing about my anxiety helps them. It’s comforting to feel understood and being given kind words is encouraging. What a reward for me! After such a disappointing week, Saturday was heavenly. I did not leave the house. I definitely did not do too much. Also, The Mister did his best to make Mother’s Day a good one for me.

Here I am at the end of the day, all spoiled and sleepy. And wearin white…


I am not ready for this week. This week knows it, too.

    Ah you look like a wee little Angel in that picture. Are you saying Moo is your little monkey? I agree with you about striking out on your own when traveling. That bear just needs to go over that mountain just to have a look see.

  2. Something made you smile, so it’s a good day!
    I’m going to paint my front door, since I call this place a piece of shiiiit, have any suggestions on a color? It doesn’t have to match since the house is a faded color of ugly.

      I strongly recommend whatever color you like, in a bold and happy version. And go gloss. This will detract from the faded color of ugly, and passers-by will know you’re an interesting person with specific taste. Any hope of growing vines over the ugly? My house isn’t ugly much as it’s vinyl (ick) that needs a good scrubbing (ick again) and lemme tell you, I’ve considered the vines instead. 😉


      • Vines make it look old lady-ish and I don’t want that. It already has ugly criss cross wood stuff that screams ugly. I rent this dump so I’m only staying until I find something else or the next drug bust burns it down and then I must leave. The excitement keeps me here I swear.

    White is a good color to wear. Or black. Or coral. Other colors have to stand in line behind those. About the anxiety, in writing my memoir draft I had a hard time finding new ways to describe the physical sensations of anxiety. I realized that I don’t read those physical sensations in books very often. It almost felt like new territory. There are the old cliches, of course.

    Yep, that monkey would just be trouble. Glad you saw through that ploy. Wish I had the same foresight when I agreed to a rabbit, two guinnea pigs and four dogs.

    Many of my clothes are black. A few maroon or blue sweaters. And most are solids, except a few striped shirts. I don’t mind those so much. But no neck tags! (I think you already know about my aversion to those…)

    I’m with you on the monkey. Unless his trick is turning dog poop into gold, I don’t want one. I hope you’re ready for the week tomorrow.

  12. Don’t monkeys rip people’s faces off? I suppose there are all types, right? Imagine waking up and it’s staring at you with those beady little eyes! No thanks! So glad you got spoilt!


  13. Anxious Mom says:

    Glad you had a good Mother’s Day! I have one black shirt in my closet that I use to wear under t-shirts when it’s cold, not into dark colors that much either.

    Good reasoning about that pet monkey. My first thought was does it bite? Are you sure it doesn’t bite? But I never thought to just not accept it. Smart girl.
