Friday Fun

Friday Fun


Aloha! Kailani is the brain-child behind this fun Friday meme. If you feel inclined to answer my question, please post your answer in the comment section. Sound fun? Of course it does! Want to answer more questions? Hop over to An Island Life and play along!

(Please feel free to answer the question below, even if you’re not playing Aloha Friday!)

My question:

How would you like to spend your elder years?

My answer:

I would love to have a cabin in the mountains, just me and the husband, far enough away that I could feel free and isolated, but close enough that we could go into town to buy groceries or eat dinner. I would love to go for long, cool, bug-free walks and sit on my deck overlooking our magnificent and scenic backyard and simply … write. *sigh* Heaven. πŸ™‚



Friday Fill-In:

1. Oh, I can’t wait until I have a few projects that have been hanging over my head DONE.

I’ve been procrastinating on a few things and quite frankly? I don’t know why. I ENJOY what I’m doing, so much so, that I find myself licking my lips in anticipation of WORKING on them. I think maybe I’m dragging them out because I’m savoring every last minute it requires to work on it. Or I’m just trying to sugar coat the fact that I’m procrastinating. πŸ˜‰

2. V8 Peach/Mango Fushion is the first thing I see when I open my refrigerator.

Seriously, have ya’ll TRIED this stuff?! It’s dee-lish! AND good for you! What more could you ask for. *grin*

3. I never leave home without chapstick.

HA! You thought I was going to say cell phone, didn’t you. *grin* I abhor my cell phone. Actually, I abhor talking on the phone, period. I much prefer to communicate via email. Why? Because I have time to articulate my thoughts before hitting that send button. When I’m talking on the phone? I always get tongue-tied and sound like a total moron.

Why chapstick? Because I’m self-conscious about my lips. They’re like dry and scaly all the time – gross!

4. If I were a condiment, I would be mustard because I’m spicy like that.

I’m the sort of person people can leave or take. Your sandwich would still taste fine without the mustard, but wouldn’t it taste SO MUCH BETTER with the mustard? πŸ˜€ I suppose I’m saying, I’m bland, in a spicy sort of way. Does that make sense? Moving on then …

5. Indecisiveness is really high up on my list of pet peeves.

OMG. Make a decision already. NOTHING drives me crazier than people who him-ha over simple decisions. OR, who can’t make a decision without consulting an army of people. Geez.

6. The last thing I thought of before I went to bed was “I wonder if I could keep my eyes open long enough to squeeze another hour’s worth of work out”.

I’m pretty sure I was asleep before I even finished that thought – so – apparently not. *grin*

Bonus! I also learned that tanning shortly before bed? NOT A GOOD IDEA. I felt like someone had dipped me into a vat of hot sauce and I tossed and turned and kicked off the covers all night.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to enduring a sleepover, tomorrow my plans include stumbling through my chores due to lack of sleep (see sleepover part) and Sunday, I want to continue planning our Disney World vacation for next summer!

My boys think I’m crazy for planning this vacation – because Disney World is for little kids, you see *snort* – but I’m determined to go at least once in my life. Question is, I need to find a really good vacation package. Something that includes the price to get into the parks, a Disney resort of some sort AND our flight down there. If any Disney veterans are reading this, I would TRULY appreciate some links!!




From the Past: Me and Mom, Circa 1969

Me and Mom, Circa 1969

See that clothesline? My mom used to tie me to that clothesline. She had to, I would run off and disappear from her sight (I was difficult like that). When she finally got tired of chasing me down the street, she tied me to the clothesline so she could keep track of me.

And look at mom’s pants. Aren’t they funky? I can pretty much guarantee she’s going to die when she sees this picture. πŸ˜€
