Or, I had nothing better to do that give you all a Meme for Monday!
It has been a busy week. Heidi turned 18, yikes! It was not as painful as Rachel turning 18, so I expect Sam becoming 18 to be a walk in the park! Also, my “other” daughter had a birthday last week. We all sent her a birthday card! I cannot tell you how it felt to have her call and tell me she felt like she was one! We laughed about her analogy. It was a week of tears and laughter! I will save Heidi’s birthday antics for another post. Stay tuned for that!
Now on to a Meme I found on a new blog! Citizen Jane posted it here.
Without further adieu, more useless information you did not know you were dying to find out about me!
1. Were you named after anyone?
In a round about way, yes I am. My mother and I share a name, likewise I have shared that name with my daughter.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Well, I cried on Saturday, if you must know.
3. Do you like your handwriting?
Yes, I like my handwriting. I particularly enjoy the process of filling a blank sheet of paper with writing. It is amazing to me that my handwriting has not changed much in a very long time. I kept journals for much of my life and the handwriting is much the same.
4. What is your favorite lunch meat?
Well, it would have to be corned beef.
5. Do you have kids?
Oh yes, a plethora of them, teenaged and hysterical. At least I spend a great amount of time laughing at them so as not to cry!
6. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
Why, yes, I believe I would!
7. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Does Carter have pills? Yes, sarcasm is my middle name!
8. Do you still have your tonsils?
Nope, I do not and I am missing many varied and sundry body parts. If it was not needed, it has been removed!
9. Would you bungee jump?
Absolutely not, no way, no how. Although, I love being on the edge. It is where it is at, gentle readers.
10. What is your favorite cereal?
Co-co Wheats. What is not to love about chocolate breakfast cereal, I mean really!
11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Now really, if I untied them when I took them off, what would I do in the morning when I put them on?
12. Do you think you are strong?
I am bull-headed, does that count? But, seriously, yes – I am not weak willed. As for physical strength, while I am cannot bench-press anything, I can move mountains if necessary!
13. What is your favorite ice cream?
Oh my, anything coffee.
14. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their eyes, the window to the soul. People who avoid eye contact are people I avoid!

16. What is the least favorite thing about yourself?
My outspokenness? My feeling that others are actually interested in my opinion? I don’t like that I have been tagged at times as a “Know It All”. It sets up a barrier I don’t want to have there. Just smack me if you see this behavior emerging!
17. Who do you miss most?
Oh, hands down, my Nana. I miss her daily, still.

I’d want to be a glorious shade of green, not grassy – not teal. But, a good earthy green shade!
22. Favorite smells?
New born baby smell, oh my! Also, all the Thanksgiving meal smells! As for perfume or cologne, if I can smell it from here, no thank you. If I have to be next to smell it – I will probably want to get closer!

That would be the most amazing and wonderful planetKnit! She called to wake me up this morning!!

Chocolate, sinfully dark and slightly sweet!

The ever un-amazing Zeeland, Michigan.
