11 little things and 1 big one

A little while ago GreekMelie tagged me with that 11 things thing that’s been going around.  I feel like I’ve done a few similar posts recently, but I don’t have much else to write about so here we go again.

For starters I’m supposed to write 11 things about myself:

1.  Still no baby.

2-11.  Still no indication that the baby’s even thinking about making an appearance.

And then I’m supposed to answer 11 questions of GreekMelie’s:

1. Why do you run if nobody is chasing you?  Just in case someone starts chasing me.  Errr…good question.  Perhaps to prove to myself that I can.  Also I feel good, both physically and mentally, when I’m running regularly.  Though not usually while I’m actually running.

2. You receive a random gift from a stranger. It’s a nice gift. What’s your first thought?  Why is a stranger giving me a nice gift?

3. Do you assume the best or the worst of other people? Depends on the person.  (And how nice of a gift it is.)

4. If your significant other ever cheated on you, would you want to know?  I would prefer that he not cheat on me in the first place.  I have asked Jason to please never cheat on me, and he seems agreeable.

5. What is the one thing you would never be able to forgive?  I would hope nothing.  But I’m sure there are plenty of things that would be difficult to forgive.

6. Live fast, die young and leave a pretty corpse behind? Or the opposite? I would much rather die old and ugly.

7. What is your favorite kind of music? And is it the same kind of music you use as a soundtrack for your workouts?  Good music.  And, yeah, I try not to listen to bad music while I’m working out.

8. PC or Mac? And why nobody uses Linux? It’s pretty user friendly, I swear!  PC.  Yeah, yeah, I’ve heard all the fuss about Macs, but I’m too lazy to learn a new system.  And Jason uses Linux.  I’ll take credit for his technological prowess.

9. The road to hell is full of good intentions. Does it really make any difference if you really didn’t mean to?  Yes, it makes a difference.  If hell exists.

10. τὸ δὶς ἐξαμαρτεῖν οὐκ ἀνδρὸς σοφοῦ. (Tò dìs examarteîn ouk andròs sophoû. “To commit the same sin twice [is] not [a sign] of a wise man.”) Do you give second chances? How many until it’s just too much? Yes, definitely.  I’m not going to answer the “how many” question because I don’t know, and that’s technically another question.

11. Speed or tempo runs?  Speed.

I’m to then come up with 11 questions of my own and tag a few of you to answer them.  Instead I’m going to come up with 1 question and invite everyone to answer it.

Clearly I’m consumed by this baby business right now.  When is she going to come?  Will I survive labor?  What will she be like?  Etc.   But if I weren’t pregnant there would probably be a different topic dominating my every thought.  Like wedding planning, or getting back in shape or trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. So my question is…

What’s the big thing on your mind these days?

10 thoughts on “11 little things and 1 big one

  1. Other than looking forward to some upcoming travel, my thoughts are pretty mundane these days! Nothing exciting (or as it would be if it were ME, devastating lol) like a baby!

  2. Let’s see. On my mind: When is Laura’s baby going to get here? When is my baby going to get here? (Related- is it March yet? How about now?) And lastly and maybe most prevalent: what will I eat first when I can once again have carbs?

    • On the topic of having our babies…did you know that if I’m two weeks late and you have your baby at 37 weeks they would be basically the exact same age? I thought of that the other day. God I hope I’m not two weeks late.

  3. It’s odd how pregnancy does that. After 30 years of thinking about millions of things every day, all of a sudden your pregnancy consumes your EVERY thought, even though your life is still going on around you.

    My thoughts are pretty routine these days, although I would say that my children make up 90% of what I think about. Meals, money and family make up the rest. 🙂

  4. I’m praying that you don’t go too late. I’m quite certain that you are ready to meet your little one ASAP.

    We are getting ready to plan our five year anniversary trip, so I’m doing my best not to google beach images on an hourly basis.

  5. Now that I see how anxious you are about the baby, I regret placing the bet for the baby being late (though I still think a 22/2 birthday is kind of cool). I’m sure everything will go just fine! 🙂 I am waiting for the baby pictures any day now.

  6. I like the answers you gave to your questions. My favorite one is with the stranger and the gift. It is funny how we automatically think any nice person is up to something.
