The mantel.. my husband still has the lit garland up.. yes it’s March but he thinks it’s pretty.

My phone.. green light blinking.. must be unread emails.

Sunflower. Last year my husband bought me a 3foot sunflower magnet which is on the side of the fridge. He knows that is my favorite flower.

Childhood Meme


Are we There Yet Mom tagged me for this meme about 5 years ago.

First, here are the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged me. (I just did)

2) Mention the rules. (are these the rules)

3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself. (Me, quirky?)

4) Tag 6 other bloggers by linking to them. (I don’t wanna)

5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged. (see above)

I don’t consider myself a quirky person. I thought I would tell you 6 things about my childhood.

1. My first best friend’s name was Laura. I was scared of her brothers, she lived across the street from me. We were NOT allowed to go into her house if we were wet from the pool. If we had to pee we were to sit on the edge of the galvanized pool and pee on the grass/ground. One time Laura pulled down her bottoms and pooped.

2. Any free time I would play in my back yard. I had a swingset and a cherry tree. I used to either climb or swing and sing.. One of my favorite songs to sing was “Up Up and Away in my Beautiful Balloon” or “Forever In Blue Jeans”.. (I used to think he was saying Reverened Blue Jeans).
..this was by myself…

3. I had every Barbie Accessory known to man.. or child as it was. My favorites were the three story townhouse w/ the elevator, the plane, the camper and the hot tub that pumped bubbles.

4. My first bike was red. It was a handmedown from someone. My neighbor Vince taught me how to ride, I was afraid dad would let go. Vince did too but for some reason it was OK.

5. The nextdoor neighbor Vince was also the person I allowed to pull my teeth. I still think Vince is the greatest! FYI: His granddaughter was one of Drew’s nurses when he was in the hospital.

6. I LOVED playing in the dirt. I used to imagine that I was digging for buried treasure. Our house was built in the 50’s on an old landfill. I used to find blue glass, old coins, tin cases. I really believed though I had to stop so I wouldn’t hit the Chinaman that lived on the other side.


Now tell me something fun about your childhood!

NEXT was Biddy

Biddy asked that I list my 10 Guilty Pleasures..

  • Manicures and Pedicures which I don’t do often enough.
  • Buying new outfits when I clearly don’t need them.
  • Picking a day and just hanging out in bed or on the couch with the animals reading all day or watching chick flicks..again it doesn’t happen that often.
  • Going out for a really nice dinner.  I love the experience and love going out.
  • Being able to work, blog, surf…all at the same time. I’m a multi-tasker.
  • Getting lost in my thoughts and imagination..and I have an active one.
  • Reality Based TV shows like Dr G, Jon and Kate, Mystery Diagnosis..

I really can’t think of 10.. so that is what you get. Now go forth, snag the meme if you would like too.

OK..so it’s 1:33pm, I heard rumor that we are closing the office at 2pm, I hope they don’t pull that “hourly people can leave, salary stay til 5pm”..bs again.  It’s Memorial Day weekend. Please say thank you and hug a soldier if you have one.. past or present.

We’re going to have a very relaxing..”if you wanna” kind of weekend. Golf, fishing, movie, dinner, sleep. We’ll do whatever we want, when we want to. No Drew..just us. Hope everyone has a great holiday. I may or may not blog 🙂
