A Bit (More) About Me #12

As she does every week, the wonderful & indefatigable Mel B. Cee at Sparks from a Combustible Mind has invited us to share our worlds, so here’s an itty-bitty peek into mine.  Thank you, Mel!  Y’all be sure to hop over and check out Mel’s incredible blog.

Q1: Do you have a favorite kind of tree?
My favorite genera of trees are magnolia, dogwood, and willow.

Q2: What bridges are you happy you burned?
A2:  All of them.  I seldom burn bridges, do so only after a great deal of deliberation, and I don’t dwell in the past.

Q3: Would you sacrifice yourself (die) for a stranger?
A3: That would depend on the circumstances.  There are very few I can imagine in which I would.

Q4: How have your priorities changed since the C-19 virus took over?
A4: My priorities have not changed one whit; they remain family, work, home, friends & neighbors.  My anxiety level, however, is another story entirely.

Until March 3 of 2020, on a scale from -50 to +50, my baseline daily anxiety was -25 with occasional spikes to +5 and, rarely, to +20/25.  Traditionally, I have given very little thought to the future.  The Boss worries about that more than enough for both of us.  But since the convergence of the tornadoes that carved a swath of destruction through Middle Tennessee and the world-changing aftermath of the novel Coronavirus pandemic, my baseline daily anxiety level has hovered around +25 with occasional spikes to +40/45.

Gratitude Section:


More than anything, I’m grateful for The Boss, The Girl, and The Boy, but also for all my closest family.  I’m also grateful that, so far, we haven’t suffered financially or health-wise due to Covid-19.


♥Who wouldn’t be grateful for them?♥

  1. Thanks Denny for Sharing Your World and a glimpse into it! 🙂 I’m sorry to hear that your stress levels have spiked so much, but sadly I think that’s the case for so many people. All we can do is remember our ‘good’ things (like your family and the fact that financially and health wise y’all have remained healthy and safe), and put one foot in front of the other. Here’s hoping there is an end in sight that we can finally see.
