So many people are already dropping their kids off to school ~ that's just craziness as it feels like the summer just started!! But I guess the fact that I just changed our family calendar to August (yes, yes...I know the date!!...), it is time to face the fact that summer is indeed moving ever closer into fall.
Last night, talking with an Iowa native at midnight her time. Surprises like that leave me all kerfuddled... :)
If you found $10 today, what would you do with it?
Probably buy my two kids a game from GameStop as they have been bugging me for two days about it and I am really ready to end the repeated conversation.
"Mom, can we go to GameStop today?"
"Because I don't have money to spend on a game right now."
"But you bought a People magazine."
"....I said no."
Do you volunteer anywhere?
Not currently...but I volunatarily don't kill my son for that train whistle noise he learned to make with his hands while at camp. Does that count for anything??? I mean seriously...it should count cuz you haven't heard it! It is loud. I mean LOUD! And how many times you gotta do it before you believe me when I say it does inDEED sound like a train...
What is your favorite summertime veggie or fruit, and how do you eat it?
Watermelon...it has to be perfectly ripe, extra sweet, and love to eat it right off the cutting board while it is still cold from the fridge.
Is your social sphere (circle of friends) small, medium or large?
I am blessed with a lot of friends in my life...but only a few know the real me.
When was the last time you attended a family or school reunion? How did that go?
Well, most of my hubby's family was here over the summer for a wedding, so I guess that counts...and it was a great time!! They are wonderful people and I even made a few new friends out of it all!
I don't get to do school reunions as I attended High School in Germany...on an airbase...so we are all spread out across the world right now. They try to get as many people together as they can, but is usually pretty far from where I live. Thank goodness for FaceBook, tho, as I get to see them all grown up!!
When you're feeling blue, what is the best way someone can cheer you up?
Don't try to patronize me...or fix anything...or help me...or analyze me.
Just hear me.
Have you taken a vacation this summer?
Yes, we went to Laughlin for Father's Day with my in-love's. The weather wasn't too hot (only got to 108...but it's a dry heat), the water was warm and the kids had a blast ~ can't ask for too much more than that.
What is the most unnecessary item you carry with you all the time?
My kid's junk in my purse...cuz it is the everywhere-we-go-catch-all.
Right now there are two paper airplanes from Sunday School and a sheet of stickers for my youngest's McDonald's toy. Am thinking about decorating the plane with the stickers...but my son might not like it if his amazing manly jet is sporting flower decals.
What is the best summer flick you have seen so far?
mmmm...that would have to be Charlie St. Cloud. That one caught me off-guard as I didn't expect it to be that good...found myself actually liking Zac Efron.
Describe a perfect summer day.
Sleeping in late, staying in PJ's till the sun goes down and reading a great book while listening to my kids laugh and my husband telling them to leave me alone... "Mommy's resting".
...and yes, it HAS happened...
Please a share a favorite photo from the summer so far!
Ok, so some set up needs to go with this pic.
We were in Laughlin and my mom-in-love had the camera. I wanted a picture of me with my hubby but since I am in my swimsuit, I requested her to keep the camera lifted up a bit. My hubby agreed, asking her to get "more view, less us".
Yeah...this is what she came up with.
Gotta love her sense of humor.
Anyway...that's it for now. Not cuz I am out of things to say but because I really, really have to go explain that while it is a wonderful train noise...STOP IT!!!
Listening to my son's gall-durned whistle while looking up as always...
