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:

Week 20: September 23, 2016

1. The last movie I saw at the theater was… Holy cow! It’s been a while! Well, OK, maybe not that long – last year, but still it seems like forever. Princess Nagger and I saw Cinderella:


We loved it. So much so we watched it again when it was available to stream. If Princess Nagger was into the sparkly girly stuff like she used to be, I totally would have made an awesome dress like that for her for Halloween. Instead, I made her the Corgi head.

We have plans to sneak off for some afternoon movies since she’s doing the Virtual Academy (and loves it!) and usually gets all her classes and assignments done before noon. No wonder she was so bored in a brick-and-mortar school – the quizzes she’s been taking have an estimated time for completion of 20 minutes – but she gets them done in mere minutes (and usually aces them), so this is working much better for her advanced brain.

2. The title of my autobiography would be… “Are We There Yet?” Which totally works! I actually did one of those quiz thingamajigs online when I couldn’t come up with anything viable. And this was the result:


Your story is far from over. “Are We There Yet” is just the beginning of your unbelievable life journey. You are an optimistic individual with a kind heart, and your autobiography perfectly sums up your life thus far. It tells of the many interesting experiences you have had, as well as your dreams for the future! This novel will have readers and critics wanting more and will fly off the shelves!

While somewhat vague and generic, it totally works – and I have a feeling great things are yet to come. Many many chapters not yet written.

3. I would love to learn… how to speak French!


It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, because I’ve always thought French is a sexy language. Plus I want to go to France some day (one of the things on my invisible Bucket List), so it’d be cool to be able to speak the language. Or just throw out French phrases every so often. I could totally get on board with that.

4. I am glad that I learned… how to be crafty and do lots of stuff from basic sewing to building things. I love doing anything creative, that’s when I’m most happy, when I’m in that creative zone. And when I’m passionate about what I’m making (like wine), it shows. Now to make sure our next house has a specific space for me to be crafty in. For now, I do what I can and dream of doing more.

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!




  1. Great answers, thank you for participating. That is cool that you found a quiz to help you come up with the name for your autobiography. I am glad Princess Nagger is doing well with school. I bet there are youtube videos or discs from the library that would help you learn French, it is never too late. Have a great weekend!

  2. Are We There Yet? is a great title! That question, at least a version of it, is on my mind a lot lately. “Can We Go NOW?” or What About Now? is my companion title to your Are We There Yet? 🙂

    What is stopping you from learning French? There are all sorts of language learning sites online, and some of them don’t cost anything. Also, Amazon very often has language learning books of various types free for the Kindle. Free is my favorite price. 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Great answers. Be careful if you just learn a few phrases in any language and then go there. Throw out a few phrases and they think you know the language. I learned just enough Spanish here on the Gulf Coast of Texas to make people think I could speak it. Then, they started speaking very rapidly in Spanish and I was lost.

  4. I haven’t seen that movie as yet either. Just lost track.

    And I do want to speak French too. Perhaps my daughter will teach me 🙂 She is learning right now.

  5. It was so weird that my daughters would not sit through that Cinderella movie!! They were bored??!! What the? I may ruined them with all the Marvel movies and now they don’t like princess stuff. Quelle surprise!

    Parler français est très sexy! Vous devriez passer au Canada, où nous apprenons à l’école.

    There is your first French lesson, LOL. Although mine is probably very rusty at this point.

  6. Hahaha – I just read Leslie’s French lesson – reminds me of mine from school in Germany way back when. I hated French! Loved Spanish. There you have it 🙂
    But I totally love your answers, especially no. 4. I am totally completely with you on hardly anything being better than being in your creative mindset. And I do have the same plan: When we move into a new house –! Hubby, did you read that?! LOL
    Have a great Sunday!

  7. I love that autobiography! Awesome! I would like to read that. Learn French, because I think you will make it there someday! And, I agree, you are a very creative person, in many ways, apparently. That is a very good thing.
    Thank you for joining us for the Fill-Ins. Hugs!
