Share Your World 2014 – Week 25

share your world

This is the Share Your World Challenge. If you missed the last couple of weeks, more information can be found at Cee’s Photography. Essentially, four questions are asked every week and you have to answer them. Simple and fun!

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal, drawing, cartoon or character in a movie or TV show)

Today, my favourite type of dog is a Bernese Mountain Dog. They are beautiful dogs and they look perfect for hugging! I have never had a pet dog before, but I always loved them growing up. I collected Puppy in My Pocket. They were small dog figurines. Does anyone remember these? They were huge for kids in the 90s. My favourite was a Border Collie named Jemma. My sister and I would spend hours playing with them. We must have had at least 100 between the two of us.  I can still remember all their names and breeds. Ridiculous the things your brain remembers huh? lol. I couldn’t bare to give up my collection, so I still have them all in my parents’ attic.

Name one thing not many people know about you.

I am a huge geek! Most people think it’s just my husband because of his Batman obsession and action figure collections, but I am a geek too. Maybe a bit of a closet geek. It doesn’t get a chance to come across in my everyday life. I love Star Wars. My cat’s name, Ewok, was my idea, not hubby’s. I like Star Trek too. Is it a sin to like both? I watch/read sci-fi and fantasy. I appreciate all things Disney and Lego. I cherish old school cartoons and toys and have a huge collection of character t-shirts that I never get to wear.

Have you ever gone scuba diving?  If you haven’t, would you want to?

I have never gone scuba diving. The thought of it used to scare me, but no so much anymore. I went snorkeling for the first time last summer and absolutely loved it. I think I’d be open to trying scuba if the opportunity presented itself. I wouldn’t want to go extremely deep or into underwater caves. Those ideas still scare me. I think I’ve watched too many horror movies or something, lol.

What was the most important event in your life last week? (anything goes it can be a good nights sleep, finished a reading book, winning the lottery, or getting married)

Most important? Hmm, it depends how you define “important”. It has been a tough week, so I’m going to go with a definition of most impact. My husband’s friend from his time in Africa died. It was deemed a suicide. We found out about it through Facebook. I had never met the man, but I felt like I knew him through my husband’s stories. I also enjoyed the emails he wrote us, although those had been less frequent this past year. It was a real shock and I have all sorts of mixed feelings and unanswered questions.

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

Last Week: I am grateful for having my health and another birthday. The events of the past week have reinforced this soooo much.

This Week: Our one year wedding anniversary is this week. I’m looking forward to doing something to celebrate. I have no ideas yet, but I’m sure we’ll come up with something. 🙂

    Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary!!! Thanks so much for sharing with us this week. I’m sure your husbands friend’s suicide has brought up a lot of emotions. Take of yourself and your hubby! 🙂
