SHARING MY WORLD – Marilyn Armstrong

Share Your World 6-11-19

I realize I am not sharing my world. I’m just answering cute questions. Just as well. I spend so much time sharing it in my own posts, I’m not sure I could handle any more serious sharing!

What do fish do all day?   What thoughts do you think they have?  (Credit to the awesome Teresa and her Fibbin’ Fridays for this one)

My best guess would be (are you ready?) … swim. Oh, and also they eat and make baby fish during the appropriate season.

Some of them spend lots of time learning because they travel in schools.

What celebrity would you have as a SPOUSE, if you HAD to choose?

I can’t think of any. I’m pretty good with the one I’ve got. Besides, anyone who looks interesting is too young.

What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?

I blew up a transmission in my first husband’s car. I was learning to drive and it was a manual, three on the stick in an old Chevy Impala, circa 1961.

This is the car. Same style, same colors.

Eventually, he decided maybe I needed driving lessons. That worked out way better.

When was the last time you slept more than 9 hours in a stretch?  Why?

Before I got pregnant and definitely before Owen was born and why? Who knows? I was young. Young people sleep well.

Now, I’m up every few hours to go to the bathroom, trying to find a comfortable position for my back,  or just because I need a couple of minutes to worry about something.

An Attitude of Gratitude! Share something you were really grateful for this year (so far):

We are still both alive and aren’t yet living in our car.

Be it ever so humble

Last night I tried (mentally) to add up how much money we’ve put into repairing this house and realized we could have easily bought another house by now.

      1. Unusual! – Our weather is similar for a change. 🙂

        I would not call ours a deluge – but we have had more rain in the last 4 days than the previous 5 months put together! (36 days to go maybe??) 😉

        Know of a good Ark builder?


  1. Hero Husband is a true fish too – he’s a Pisces – and he’s very good at charming whole schools and yet keep himself close to the ground, not giving away anything 🙂
    Loved your answers. Have one impertinent (?) question: Is that a plastic over your lamp shade? Why? Oh, the stuff ppl see!


  2. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your Cute Answers to Cute Questions. You reminded me that I too am a fish, being a Pisces by astro sign and having traveled in more than enough schools in my day. **glub glub**


    1. A few years later, everything changed and suddenly, cars went super compact probably because the price of gasoline went from 30 cents a gallon to a couple of dollars a gallon. Amazing what a difference it made! I hated those huge cars. It was like driving a big ship on a heavy sea. Not surprisingly, the VW beetle was very popular.
