A Lent update

I think I’ll catch-up on blog reading on Saturday.  There’s just too much to blog reading on Sunday’s and to catch-up on Facebook as well.   Do you think that’s unreasonable?  To modify it after a few weeks?  It’s still the same basic sacrifice and it still gets me off the net M-F and most of Saturday.  What do you think?  Is that cheating?

The first four days were good.  No cheating of any sorts.

The next week (3/2-3/7), I peeked on Facebook after the kids were in bed to clear out any app invites and adjust my notifications.  That’s it.  No surfing.  I also checked Google reader to clear out a couple of time related posts.

This past week (3/9-3/14), I was very good.  No peeking at Facebook.  No checking Google reader, until today, Saturday.  I had 95 posts in my reader Saturday morning.


Sentimental Sunday (9)

After taking a week off, I think I have something for you.

Little Man is in Kindergarten now.  It’s so fun to hear him learn and sing songs and rhymes that I’d forgotten all about.  Such as:

  • Miss Mary Mack…
  • Teddy Bear, teddy bear turn around…
  • Down at the station early in the morning…
  • Round and round the garden, like a teddy bear.  One step, two step, tickle under there!
  • Criss-cross applesauce…
  • Wash the dishes, dry the dishes…

Just to name a few.  I’m sure there are other’s, but those are the ones that I can think of.

Sentimental Sunday (6)

Here we are again.  Time for Sentimental Sunday.  🙂  Christmas version!

  • Two words:  Moon Boots.  My sister and I were on the Christmas parade float for the Chamber of Commerce.  I was a shepard.  We wore Moon boots!  LOL!! 
  • Our Santa always ride on the fire truck in the parade.
  • Going with Fighting Windmills post, we always received toothbrushes in our Christmas Stockings.  Now I include them in our stockings.  I’m sure that we always got regular items in our stockings, but I always remember toothbrushes.
  • For as long as I could remember, My two sisters, brother and I would always sleep in the same room.  The last year we did this was probably Christmas 1994?  The four of us tried to sleep in the king size bed.  I think I was the only one who really fell asleep that night.
  • Our other Christmas tradition was to open our presents in our PJ’s.
Chamber of Commerce Float

Chamber of Commerce Float, 1983

I’m there on the left with the cane and the dark blue moon boots and the sun glasses!  I think this was pre-parade.


Sentimental Sunday (5)

Just one more thing from last week.  Before we had a wagon with seats in the well, my younger sister and I would sit in the back-back for long trips.  No belts!  What a concept!!  LOL!!

Anyway, This is the last day of NaBloPoMo.  I’m not sure if I’ll continue doing Sentimental Sunday.  I’m not sure I’ll have much more to write about!  Today’s post will be a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

  • My Dad was part of the Theater Assocciation.  One year I helped run wire under the stage!  I was the smallest person there.
  • In the summer, we’d spend hours at the pool.  We always wore sunscreen, so we rarely burned.
  • One summer we took an RV trip to Canada.  We went to Thunder Bay.
  • I was a part of 4-H & Girl Scouts.
  • One of my 4-H demonstrations, I made a dessert.  Whipped cream with pineapple chuncks.  YUM!!  One of the questions asked was,m “What do you eat it with?”  I answered, “A spoon.”  She meant, what kind of food do you serve it with!  LOL!!
  • I am finding all sorts of old friends on facebook.  I {Heart} facebook!
