I Was The Kind Of Kid Who...

I saw this link-up on Miss Helene's blog & knew that I had to do it so here we go:

I was the kind of kid who...

  ...pretended to be Ariel in our swimming pool by crossing my ankles into a fin. to watch Porky's but couldn't watch Beetlejuice - I think that penises flopping about is more scary than Michael Keaton.

  ...would rather sit inside listening to Mom's records than play outside.

  ...had a ton of Hot Wheels (complete with car tracks) & Barbies to play with.

  ...sat with the adults just listening to their chatter rather than getting into trouble with the siblings & cousins (they were always getting into trouble - ha!).

  ...must have known that I'd eventually be the smallest so I beat up on my siblings as much as I could when they didn't listen to me while I was babysitting.  Tee hee!

  ...sat by the heating vent reading Babysitters Club & then eventually RL Stine books.

  ...went with her mom to the library to not only get stacks of books but to look at old newspapers. mom had a difficult time buying pants for cuz my waist was so small & my legs were so long (I have the same issue with Sunshine).

  ...came home from school & did my homework while watching Dark Shadows that I had taped during the day on SciFi.  I loved that show!  


  1. I have lots of memories reading and listening to my mom's records too :)

  2. Oh man I was the biggest Babysitters Club fan. Read every single book and even made a fake club in my room with my dolls. I had the Stacey and Dawn dolls. Also loved RL Stine! Apparently RL Stine is going to start writing kid books again!

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
