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!

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…

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 &/orApril.

My five this week are five of my latest funnies pinned on Pinterest.  Lately, work has been a lil difficult & I need something to make me smile on this Friday morning.  So, here we go:

So, are there any posts that have been giving you a giggle lately?  If so, please share.
Have a great weekend, yall!
