I am finding as I read through the wonderful Share Your World questions each week, that I cannot answer most with an either/or answer. Most of the time I like/prefer/choose both. It might depend on some circumstances but I am finding and I am not surprise, by the way, that I am definitely not a this or that kind of person. Case in point…here are my answers for this week!
Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?
I love the character of two story houses and I love having bedrooms upstairs. I like coming down in the morning to complete quiet to have my coffee. On the other hand, a one floor house is very convenient. It felt much safer to be close to the kid’s bedrooms when they were little and being able to hear them. It was also great to be able to be within earshot when you have a child with a disability. I am thankful that when he had his seizures, I was right here and could run in and help him. One other great thing, is that your laundry is handy, too. There is no lugging heavy baskets up and down stairs. We have lived in a one level house for many years now and it has been good. (There is the bonus of a basement so although all the main living is on the first floor, you have the option of another floor.)
If you have a TV, would you prefer the TV in the living room or another room?
Yes. See? Just not one answer. If I ‘had’ to pick one room, of course it would be the living room. It is the central gathering room of the house, where everyone can watch together. I do love having one in the bedroom-I can’t seem to go to sleep without it.
When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time? Explain your answer.
Again, yes. What can I say? I do both. I get up pretty early, in the dark, so I turn on the lights. I don’t want to run into anything. Besides, how else can I find that coffee cup? At night, I like for them to be off. Strange, do you think? I even like to watch tv in the dark.
What’s your favorite room in your home?
Depends. Every room obviously, has a different purpose. I do love love love the kitchen. Hopefully I will have one soon! Progress is being made. It shouldn’t be long now!
The kitchen is such a great area to gather. We are a cooking family and there is nothing like a get-together or a holiday with family and friends and food! The kitchen was always the place we would be at my grandmother’s and my mom’s! A room that can you can make great memories in!
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
There is a lot to be grateful for as always. I am grateful again for progress and for continued healing of my sore muscles. (Almost there!) I am grateful to celebrate my 29th Mother’s Day. It has been a blessing to be a mom to four wonderful people!
In the coming week, I am looking forward to much more progress in the kitchen and for that I am VERY grateful! It hasn’t been easy, but it will be worth it.
