Time for this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.

 

Here are Cee’s questions for this week:

What goal are you working on now? Your goal can be something fun or extremely serious. Have fun with this question.

My goal for this summer is a bit ambitious, if just a bit boring.  It’s all related to our home, and is somewhat lengthy.  Two estimates next week for a larger septic system, adding a bath upstairs (hence the new septic), and paint the house.  Then, if I have any time or money left, we want to replace a set of double windows with French doors going out to a small deck.  All but the septic system, some roughed-in plumbing, and a bit of electrical, it’s all gonna be DIY.

Whew!  I’m exhausted, and broke, just thinking about it.

What is one thing you’re glad you tried but would never do again?

Bungee jumping.  A couple of times, actually.  Not sure I’d do it now, though.  That said, I wouldn’t discourage anyone, including my kids, from trying it.  It’s pretty friggin’ fun.

Did you choose your profession or did it choose you?

A little of both, I think.  I changed  careers, at around 28-29.  I was miserable in my work and was looking for a change.  My wife was a nurse at a rehab hospital at the time.  She introduced me to the director of the OT department.  I shadowed for a week, and I kinda fell in love with it.  Decided to go back to school, and the rest is history.  Been doing it now for 18 years.

Have you ever gotten lost?

Sure.  A lot of times, it’s on purpose.

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

From last week, I’m grateful for getting a surprise visit from Papa, my FIL, as I hadn’t seen him since his heart surgery this past winter.  He looks fantastic, and says he feels better than he had in years.

In the coming week, I’m looking forward to a fair, and hopefully reasonable, estimate on the aforementioned septic system.  I’m thinking it’s gonna go down the opposite way, but hope springs eternal.

  2. I really love to get lost but it’s hard for me to do it. I know the area around me so well and I have such a good sense of direction that I can’t remember the last time I got lost. I need to be dropped somewhere at least 300 miles away and go from there… Or dropped on an island somewhere. That’s my kind of lost. (LOST?)

  3. Why wouldn’t you bungee jump again? Never liked I Try but I totally love The Drugs don’t work so it adds up 🙂
