Me On Monday…


As usual, the weekend went by in a blur!  It’s Monday, again, and I’m tired.  I actually thought about not blogging today, but I’m a creature of habit, so here goes…

I’ll begin by participating in “The Monday Quiz” over at Acting Balanced.  Here are Heather and Wayne’s questions, along with my answers:

1. When you went trick or treating as a kid; what did you hope people were giving out?

When I was a kid, I loved candy, ALL KINDS OF CANDY, so I didn’t really care what people were giving out–as long as it was candy 🙂  ( I have the cavities to prove it!)  

2. What radio station do you listen to while driving?

I listen to the classic oldies of the 70’s and 80’s or today’s country music.

3. How much do you think should be the maximum one would spend on a three-year old’s birthday party?

It’s been years since I planned a birthday  party for a little one, so I really have no idea how much a party would cost these days.  I suppose how much someone spends should depend on their bank account.

4. When do you know that you trust someone?

As a rule, I trust people until they give me a reason not to.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t.

My question:   Are you prepared for an ’emergency situation’?   

Ed and I watched last night’s show, on NAT GEO, entitled “American Blackout”.  The two-hour show depicted what would happen in America, in the case of a blackout.  The show was quite thought-provoking!  Watching that show made me thankful I don’t live in a ‘high rise’ apartment in the city!  In fact, it made me even more thankful I don’t live in the city, period!  

Weekend wrap up:

It was a fun, but busy weekend in our ‘neck of the woods’.  Our oldest grandchild celebrated her 7th birthday with a fun birthday party.  The day started out cold (47 degrees), but by party time, it had warmed up nicely (high 60’s).  It was a ‘carnival’ party, so we spent the entire day outside, which was nice.  There were games, bouncy houses, hot dogs, popcorn, candied apples, cotton candy, and more…


Look at all those treats!

After partying all day, on Saturday, Ed and I went ‘to the city’ to visit our youngest son and his wife, on Sunday.  I called and told them we were coming to spend ‘their last quiet weekend’ with them 🙂  The nursery is finished and waiting for baby Evan, who is scheduled to arrive this Wednesday.


Chances are, after this week, Evan’s nursery won’t ever be this peaceful or organized again, but that’s a good thing.  Thank heaven for little boys!!!

On that happy note, I’ll end this post!  Have a great Monday, everyone!

  1. Yes I think we are prepared for a blackout. My husband was in the Scouting movement and we used to camp.

  2. My favorite Halloween treat growing up was the homemade popcorn ball given out by Mrs, Skinner (the first grade teacher). We always made sure we stopped at her house.

    Sounds like you had a nice weekend!

  3. I didn’t care what they were giving out, I like most candy bars but I always enjoyed the big ones! Movie sounds good, I just set my DVR to tape it, they are reshowing it a few times. Looks like a fun birthday party!

  4. We are SO not prepared for an emergency! My hubby is not Mr. Proactive and when I asked him about things like that is answer is usually “will figure it out.”

    The pictures from the birthday party are awesome! It looks like it was a fun weekend.

  5. Madison is a beautiful girl!! What a fun birthday party, with perfect weather! The nursery is awesome – and you are right about it never looking that serene again! Can’t wait to see a photo of that new baby!!
