Welcome to "Tell The Truth Thursday" where the question that has been posted in my right side bar gets answered by me and you! Did you prepare your post and are you ready to drop your URL into the Linky so that we all can follow? Grab the thumb above linking it back to this blog posting and let's get started...
The question this week is :
What type of flooring does your personality most resemble? Which flooring would you prefer to resemble??
Like Red (as in Redheadriter) says, this is a wierd question. It's also an appropriate question considering my decisions this past year. We have just put in all new floors (except the bathroms). I never thought I'd want all hard floors. Who wants to do that much sweeping and swiffering, never mind mopping. Then I dealt with owning carpets, having long haired cats plus surving the first 12 years of my daughter's life. I remember when we bought the house in 1997 and my husband found a spot on the floor. I said to him.. don't worry we'll have plenty more once the baby is born. Natalie was born 5 months later in November. Little did I know how messy kids can be.
At this point in my life my husband and my marriage had fallen apart and I was afraid of what would happen to me. I still haven't figured that all out. He and I chose to live in the same house till my daughter graduated from High School. She just started 7th grade. To say this hasn't been easy is putting it mildly.
I have to make sure no one is around cause even when it seems dry it's easy to create foot prints. When the cats shed (it's that time of year again) I can see the fur fly and it's easy to pick it up or sweep it. House work is never easy for me. I'm always wiped out after just 15 minutes, but at least it's more productive now.
Whew!! Why wonder it took me till Thursday AM to write this. All the emotions and thoughts that flooring brought me. Read what Red wrote. She is an amazing writer and had me lulled into a great story. She always makes me wish I was her next door neighbor.
