Create a Connection-"Challenge to Stretch"

1a. What is one thing about your body that you hate, deny, talk trash about?
My tummy because since my rear went south I need smaller jeans which creates the famous dunlop disease ( tummy lops over your belt).
1b. What can you do to make friends with this part and show it a little love?
Buy bigger jeans while looking like I have a load in my butt or I can see it as a trophy for two births and good food. Wear elastic and set it free ;)
2a. What is one thing about your home that doesn't feel good?
My current home has single pane windows and was built in 1961, so it's freezing.
2b. What is one thing you can do to change that?
I'm moving this summer which is way out of my comfort zone. I'll be warmer :)
3a. Is there a relationship that you have difficulty with?
My father has always been in my life but not emotionally. I call him ghost dad because he was there, but not there and I call him every so often to check in. I only have him and my brother left, but my brother is like my dad.
3b. What is something small you can do to either salvage it or come to terms with the way it is now?
I came to terms with my family years ago. I guess you can't miss what you never had. It's something I wish I had but understand it's just who they are. I feel adopted and yet because of it I'm still not a family person.
4a. Is there something you are afraid to do, but would like to try it?
I grew up on ski's and would like to try disabled skiing, but the cold might effect the ALS.
4b. What can you do to begin a plan to try it?
I'm moving near Tahoe, so I can go during the week, on a sunny day and sit ski. If I get cold I'm close to home and they have a variety of disabled opportunities.

Yay!! I also love to ski, and as it happens-- ahem-- may be able to come cheer you on sometime.

Or at least drink a hot tottie in the club house with you, if all else fails.

We also have single pane windows, which I have always failed to understand. I mean the house my dad grew up in was built in the 1910s and it had double glazing (I know it was in Sweden, but England gets cold too!). And since the cold affects the ALS I can see you must be looking forward to moving (even though it's stressful).

I enjoyed reading this, getting to know you better.

Have a lovely Thursday :)

I laughed my rather large ass off at 1b. Setting it free sounds a good way to go and what better than elastic to do that. Hahahahahahahahahaha!

Morning Tammy.

I liked this post. I hope everything you need comes true this year.

Star said...

You cracked me up with the elastic :D

I think this move is going to bring lots of new and wonderful things into you life (and Dave's). Thanks for sharing your answers, Tammy!

Wow Tammy, I hope you have lots of fun skiing!!! I'll be there in spirit, cheering you on.... from the nice comfy warmness of a ski lodge, by my cup of hot chocolate!!! Hahaha I hate cold temps!

Sounds like your new home is going to be wonderful, with many opportunities nearby to try - and hopefully enjoy - new things! xo

what an enjoyable read :)

my house was built in 1945 and has the double sash windows ~ i don't understand why in the sixties, they switched to single? brrrrr

i love the new jeans that have all sorts of spandex elastic built in, they are my best friends ;-)

Thanks for giving me a name for it - I dunlop, too :)

Hope you have fun on the slopes next winter! xo
