Whoa! It’s a little dusty over here – I can’t believe I had a Blonde Moment and totally spaced out the Friendly Fill-Ins the past couple of weeks! You ever get that nagging feeling you’re forgetting something? Well, I figured out what my nagging feeling has been the past couple of weeks…heh!
It’s time once again for some Friday fill-in fun, the perfect way to wrap up the week and kick off the weekend!
From Ann of McGuffy’s Reader:
“The Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by myself. We try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please come back, link up, and share your thoughts!”
And away we go! Here are this week’s statements with my fill-ins:
1. My favorite cereal is… Ooooh! That’s a tough one, because it’s been a while since I’ve eaten any kind of cereal. I have to say my latest favorite, though, is Cinnamon Frosted Flakes
Have you seen those in your local stores? Even Princess Nagger loves it – though she polished off a Family Size box in record time – but she must have gotten burned out, because the new box has been sitting in the pantry untouched. Maybe she just hasn’t noticed it yet. I better not tell her if I’m interested in having any.
My favorite cereal used to be Grape Nuts.
That was/is my mom’s favorite, and every once in a while she’d let us kids (if we asked really really nice) have some – she’d allow exactly 1/4 cup for our bowl, then we’d add sugar (I know, kinda defeats the purpose of eating a healthier cereal, no?) and zap the milk in the microwave to get it piping hot before pouring it over the sugar covered cereal in the bowl.
Come to think of it, Grape Nuts might have been my favorite based purely on the amount of sugar we’d load on it before adding the hot milk. After the cereal was gone, it was a major treat to have the rest of the sugar at the bottom of the bowl with what was left of the hot milk. I can’t seem to do that now – obviously I’ve chosen to shy away from sugary sweets.
Although if I’m being truthful, I’m now craving a bowl of Grape Nuts. With sugar and hot milk. Too bad I don’t have any!
2. My prom… didn’t exist. I know you’re probably thinking “Say whaaaat?” But it’s true – I went to a Christan school, and they didn’t believe in dancing or proms. We did, however have Homecoming each year – I was blessed to be the Homecoming Princess in my Jr year.
3. The thing about sleep is… I’m not getting enough of it, lately. I don’t know why – I think I’m still trying to adjust to the hubby’s whackadoodle schedule, that no matter what time he gets home or we wander up to bed, we’re still yanked awake by the alarm at the gawdawful hour of 4:15am. I refuse, however, to go to bed super early, because I’m just not old enough to have a super early bedtime.
Of course it’s catching up to me – I might have to rethink that early bedtime thing and catch up on some sleep – it’s no fun walking around in a fog.
4. I cannot help myself, but… my eyes keep closing on their own accord. I guess that means I better wrap this up and head to bed!
Now it’s time to Celebrate the Small Things! I’m joining in this fun blog hop to join some awesome bloggy friends and meet new ones – click on the badge for more information and if you’d like to play along, too!
I’m celebrating that my sister is in town from Kansas – we spent a wonderful full day of doing nothing but shopping and hanging out on Monday. We’ll have to do that again while she’s still here.
She’s been a huge help to my mom giving her emotional support with the ups and downs of my dad’s condition – he’s still in the rehab/recovery place, he had a setback with a wound on his leg that has delayed the surgery to the shoulder he broke falling off that 8-foot ladder.
His rotator cup is also torn, hence the need for surgery. But his leg wound has to heal since it was problematic, they won’t operate on his shoulder until his leg shows improvement, which delays his full recovery so he can go home. Your prayes are definitely welcome – he’s had some rough days and has had to be on suicide watch. I can’t imagine how boring being in that place would be – I’ll have to see if they have wifi so he could at least watch COPS or YouTube videos to pass the time in between physical therapy. Right??!
That’s a wrap! Hope you join in the fun! Check out the other Friendly Fill-Ins participants and join in if you feel the urge for some fun!
