I'd RATHER be posting cute video clips of my grandkids playing in the snow this morning. Our California Kids came up for a pre-Christmas visit, and we've been having lots of fun. Fun for a later post, I hope. In the mean time, here's a review of 2008 (sort of):
The year 2008
1 Who kissed you on new years?
Mikey. Probably. Unless we were asleep. It counts at 10:00 pm, too, you know!
2 Did you have a New Year's Resolution this year?
Nope, I’m a total slacker.
3 Does it snow where you live?
Yes, if we’re lucky.
4 Do you like hot chocolate?
Yes, with marshmallows that get stuck in my mustache (let’s not go there)
5 Have you ever been to Times Square to watch the ball drop?
No, but I don’t usually watch it on TV either. NY would be better at other times of the year, but not during that small segment of time. Can you say “pickpocket”?
1 Who was your Valentine?
Mike’s my best Valentine. He brings me chocolate ;-)
2 When you were little, did you buy Valentine's for the whole class?
3 Do you care if the groundhog sees its shadow or not?
Nope. Weather is weather and I can’t change it, so why bother?
1 Are you Irish?
Welch. Close enough?
2 Do you like corned beef and cabbage?
Yep. I used to make it for the family to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but have since grown lazy in my old age.
3 What did you do for St Patrick's Day?
Celebrated Relief Society’s Birthday, probably.
4 Are you happy when winter is pretty much over?
Depends on how long it takes to get winter over with. If it’s in June, yes!
5 Do you get tons of candy for Easter?
I’m the candy buyer. I try to be moderate. It doesn’t usually work.
1 Do you like the rain?
Do I have to be out in it? Is it in Hawaii?
2 Did you play an April fool's joke on anyone this year?
No, I’m so boring.
4 Do you love the month of April?
Yeah. I love Income Tax Day, especially. It’s also my daughter’s birthday AND my son-in-law’s birthday and sometimes they come on Easter! What could be more fun than a birthday Easter Bunny cake?!
5 Your birthday is in April, isn't it?
No, only seven months away, however
1 What is your favorite flower?
Yellow Roses. Unless it’s spring tulips in my yard.
2 Finish the phrase "April showers…"
bring May flowers. . . is this a trick question?
4 Is May anything special to you?
Yes, it’s Gail’s birthday and Damian’s and Tandy’s anniversary, and some cool other stuff, too. And a very cool birthstone I covet.
1 What year did/will you graduate from high school?
1974. I’m almost an antique.
2 Did you do anything fun during this month?
I think I just did work stuff and garden stuff and home repair stuff at my in-laws with the kids and Mikey.
3 Have a favorite baseball team?
Not a one. I wouldn’t even know if they went on strike. They’ve done that before, haven’t they?
1 What did you do on the 4th of July?
I think we skipped the parade, skipped the fireworks (because we didn’t know where they were), and just relaxed at home. We had a new (used) hammock in our backyard I put to good use.
2 Did you watch the fireworks?
Nope, skipped them. Utah Summer Games ones are better, anyway.
3 Did you blast the A/C all day?
We don’t HAVE A/C.
1 Where did u go?
I honestly cannot remember if we managed to go anywhere at all during the summer.
2 Did you have a sunburn?
3 Did you go to the pool a lot?
1 Are you attending college/school?
Nope, just a random fun class every now and then to keep the ol’ brain alive.
2 Do you like fall better than summer?
By FAR! Although, summer is great, there’s nothing like crunchy leaves and bright crisp skies. Ripe apples on the tree . . .garden harvests.
3 What happened this month?
I got MARRIED! To the sweetest guy about 32 years ago.
2 What is your favorite candy?
Cherry chololates, Dove Chocolates, Baby Ruth bars. . .just about anything and everything except sour things. How can something SOUR be classified as candy!
3 What was your favorite thing(s) about this month?
I love Mike’s birthday and the Harvest Holiday. And the fall weather, unless it turns winter too fast and snows on leaf-laden trees, breaking limbs. Yeah, that gets ugly. But you should see me ride my bike down 700 West through those crunchy leaves! It’s the greatest!
1 Whose house do you go to for Thanksgiving?
2 What are you thankful for?
My family, my friends, my home, my job.
3 Do you like stuffing?
4 Anything special in this month?
1 Do you celebrate Christmas?
Yes, and I have all my life.
2 Have you ever been kissed under the mistletoe?
3 What do you want this year?
Cards to automatically be addressed and mailed.
4 What do you love most about December?
And I tag Tandy, Katie, Gail, (what happened to Hali?), and Trecia . Have fun!
