Okay, so, yesterday I totally skipped a day of the challenge and with good reason! I was so stinkin’ tired that I just couldn’t bring myself to open up the laptop and make a post. So I’m going to blend both days into one and hope that this isn’t a jumbled heap of a mess. It probably will be though. It doesn’t help that Arya the wild husky is laying across the armrest of the couch, leaning against me, staring at me an inch from my face. Peer pressure is a helluva thing and this dog is laying it on thick.
Most Proud Moment
So for day 11 the subject was to be a most proud moment. There are a lot of moments that I’ve felt proud of either others or myself, so I’m just going to say my life is one giant proud moment. A series of decisions that I’ve made through the years leading me up to this very moment have been good decisions and for that I’m proud. Moving and meeting my husband, getting married and buying our first house. All proud moments. I recall when I was told I was too young to get married at the age of 22, and I simply rolled my eyes. I had a job at 15, I paid my dad monthly for my car at 17, and I moved out on my own by 19. I learned to be responsible and mature at a very young age so getting married at 22 was not too young to me. Hell, I’ve bought and sold a house already. Half of my family on my mother’s side haven’t even bought their first house yet.
So in a nutshell, I’m proud of the moments in my life that I made the right decisions.
If I Won the Lottery…
Now this… this is an interesting topic. You could say until you’re blue in the face what you would do, but until you actually have that sort of money in your hands you could never truly know. If we’re hanging out in imagination land I will definitely play along. I’ve told my husband that if I could I would adopt all of the homeless dogs and give them a giant piece of land to play in and live on. As unrealistic as that is, I would love to donate a huge portion to a shelter. The way most people feel about kids is how I feel about dogs. I would likely buy a house somewhere for my husband and I, fill it with a bunch of loveable doggies, and then set up a monthly donation to the humane society. Because remember: dogs won’t call you asking to “borrow” money or guilt you when they cannot pay their bills. They shower you with unconditional love and that’s what you should surround yourself with.
I would love to hear about your proudest moment or if you won the lottery what you would do with your winnings.
