monday memes

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008


Karen from WriteFromKaren has started a new meme, appropriately titled the ‘Monday Morning Meme’. It’s a lot of fun – won’t you join in?

1. What did you do over the weekend? (Saturday and Sunday – be specific, please. Remember, this is a journal about your life, so, tell us about your life. *smile*) …

Saturday I spent most of the day at home, later in the afternoon I went with mom and dad to eat dinner at Qdoba and then mom and I ran to sam’s to pick up dad’s birthday cake and then to Dillards at Penn Square Mall to find some things for amanda to wear in her senior pictures.

Sunday I stayed home with izzy while the rest of the fam went to church, I fixed soup in the crockpot.  Everyone came home and ate lunch and then I ran with amanda and lorenzo to kohl’s to look again for clothes! and then to mom and dad’s for his birthday party (cake and ice cream sundaes) and then came home and fed izzy and then ran back down to cut mike and dad’s hair!  Home for a few minutes and then I went to church.  Matt stayed home with izzy.  There was a guest speaker who has been at FLO twice and she is awesome!  I really enjoyed it.  It ran pretty late and so I came home and got izzy to bed and then went to b

2. Which are scarier to you: ghosts or aliens? Why? Do you believe in either/both? Why or why not?

Probably ghosts.  I used to not believe in them, but after seeing some ghost shows I think maybe they are around… and it’s a little creepy.  I don’t believe in aliens…

3. I can’t live without my cellphone and bible. Now, please tell us why you can’t live without it. Why?

It reminds me of the post about cellphones and bibles… and I should say I can’t live without my bible.  I put cellphone because it links me to my family and friends.  I couldn’t live without my bible either because I would be lost without it.

4. What is the cheesiest movie you ever saw, and secretly enjoyed? Why did you enjoy it so much?

I can’t think of the name, but it had hillary duff and she was on a trip in europe and was a look alike to a pop star … she ended up performing.  It was cheesy!  I don’t know why (to this day) I enjoyed it… maybe because it was so silly.


Join in on the Manic Monday fun!

Pick out the most important item you have in your purse/wallet and tell me why it’s important to you.

My debit card!  Because it pays for everything!

What would you take from your house if you knew it would be flooded tomorrow?

family, laptop, pictures…

If you were stuck in a room for an hour with a chalk board, what would you draw on it?

Garfield.  LOL. I draw garfield all the time. And hearts and flowers and vines… I am a doodler… I also write “annie” in bubble letters and all different ways.

monday stuff…

Manic Monday #133

If you could choose only two movies to watch ever again, what would they be?

Yikes… I have no idea and Matt’s not home to tell me :).  Maybe “It’s a Wonderful Life” to watch around the holidays… and Beaches is a great CRY movie.

What have you found to be the best way to relieve tension?

Cleaning, really fast… or sleeping!

If you went to a beach and it turned out to be a nude beach, would you stay and go swimming? Would you swim nude?

I doubt I’d stay… the kids would be with me and that would just be weird… and some things just shouldn’t go uncovered.

September 8th Questions:

1. Fill in the blank: Today, I will mostly be working. (Explain your answer, please)  ex. Well, I have lots of catching up to do from the weekend, and have to do mom’s hair… and lots of other things.

2. What advice do you have for a new blogger? Be specific – this new blogger? Wants to know details!  Just enjoy your blog and getting to know new people!

3. Tell us about your childrens’ (all ages!) first day of school, walk us through it. How did you handle it? How did your children handle it? Do you have a picture? (And speaking of pictures, hang onto to those precious school pictures, the next photo contest is coming up fast!)  Amanda started her senior year.  Her first day was great, and she is loving the schedule! Bailey started his freshman year.  His first day was full of rules and lists.  He is doing well too… Emelia is a fifth grader.  Her first day was all about reconnecting with her buddies!   Izzy’s first day of kindergarten was good, except for the other Isabelle who was having trouble following the rules.  Izzy’s aid had to constantly reassure her that she was not in trouble.

4. What is your greatest consumer mistake, something that you are shaking your head at now, saying, “Boy, I wish I wouldn’t have bought the purse I did at the Coach store last Fall…? So, why did you buy it? What happened to it?  I wish I had bought a size bigger because I love the purse it’s just not quite big enough.  I realized it just about the time we flew out of Orlando.  Oops.  I bought the matching wallet and wish I had just invested in a bigger bag minus the $200 wallet.

Manic Monday #130

Is there something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?

Traveling… I just can’t right now. Too many responsibilities at home etc.

If you could make any fictional character come to life, which one would it be?

Father Tim. (from the Mitford books)

If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be and how long would it take you to spend the $10,000?

Probably Sam’s (because they have just about everything)… or Amazon for the same reason … it would take me about a day. If that long. On second thought I would probably choose so I could get Izzy a stroller and the walkable. It would take me about 30 seconds to spend the money!

Name three things you wanted as a child but never got.

A sister. Although I have some friends that are a lot like sisters… I always feel like sisters take priority.  My SIL Terri has become a sister  … which is nice too!  She went with us to Disneyworld and was the perfect playmate for Bailey and Emelia. 

That’s the only thing I can think of… I had lots of love from the best parents who taught me to be thankful for what I had and taught me to be gracious, and content.

How would your friend describe you to someone who has never seen you?

Tall. Blond.

Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why?

Ultimately I trust God to protect me, but as far as people go I trust my parents because I know they love me and Matt, for the same reasons…

For the LORD God is our light and protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will the LORD withhold from those who do what is right. Ps. 84:11

If you died or went missing, who would miss you?

Same, parents and Matt. and the kids. And as janet pointed out I do have lots of friends who would miss me too and Betty 🙂 .
Play along with Manic Monday!
