I'm Number TWO!!!... at...

...Monday Madness, May 15, 2006
Fill in the blanks...

1. If I could change ONE thing from this past weekend, it would be the weather... although sun DID shine part of the time.

2. One of my favorite recipes includes garlic... matter of fact MOST of my favorites have garlic in the recipes.

3. If things don't go as originally planned, I tend to wing it.

4. My daily routine is very eclectic.

5. The one television show I will probably miss, since the season is coming to an end, is Desperate Housewives.

6. I have a calendar hanging/sitting on my desk.

7. I'm really not very prompt about changing the calendar when the day/month changes.


Broken Foot Update...

...It takes two feet to drive a 'stick-shift' vehicle. I can drive my Ranger again! Doctor Mayne says my ankles and foot are healing well. I don't need to wear the boot around the house anymore but should still wear it when I'm out and about - walking in the great outdoors. Why? the foot will continue healing for another month yet... and I need to be very careful until then.

Today I drove into town to attend a little 'ice cream social' and 45th birthday celebration for my favorite Michigan legislator - Representative John Moolenaar. He has been my hero ever since he read my letter about an unfair situation that disrupted our family for a whole year during 2003. The situation concluded quickly once he knew about it.

This was the first time I've driven in two months and couldn't have been for a better cause.

Monday already?

Finally! I think the boot goes today. Haven't been able to drive myself anywhere for over 7 weeks now... pretty bad for somebody as impatient as I.

Even though she doesn't have much time for blogging, OttO still manages to offer us a bit of Monday Madness every week. Thank you, girl!! ...and a note for her fans... the remodeling project is almost done... and it's looking GREAT!

Sleepy Time Girl...

...a very old song! I've been able to awaken by 8:00 am without an alarm clock for several years... because I don't want to 'sleep my life away.' During the last year I've actually been waking up even earlier most days - anywhere from 6:30 to 7:30 - so I really no longer worry about wasting the day sleeping. (It's a generational thing... or maybe family... or maybe both.)

This morning I woke up - put on my glasses so I could read the clock - and was shocked!!! It was 9:20 am! Unbelievable! I have a particular task to accomplish today and didn't want to waste any time whatsoever!

What happened? I don't know... all I do know is that my body seems to usually get what it needs - even if I'm not consciously taking care of myself. I think it really needed that good, long, deep sleep! I do remember spending time with Frank - in some sort of 'every day' situation - even though I can't for the life of me remember details! All I know is we discussed something.

The Walleye Festival/Community Rummage Sale was a smashing success! It was a first for yours truly... who always left town for the event in past years. I actually had a rummage sale! I actually enjoyed it... the variety of shoppers... doing something as part of the community... the camaradery with two daughters and a granddaughter working with me... and most of all..... people actually paid for stuff I didn't want anymore!!! I think it will happen again.

Speaking of sleep... Monday Madness had a couple of sleep-related items this week. It's a 'fill in the blanks' one, lots of fun... and easy! Thank you my lovely daughter, OttO. Here are my answers:

1. Sleeping in for me means sleeping until 10:00 am or later.

2. Staying up late means I don't go to bed until after midnight.

3. I probably spend more time playing Spider Solitaire than I would like should.

4. And I don't spend nearly enough time playing outdoors.

5. I have zero tolerance for people who think they know what is best for me better than I do... be they government, non-governmental organizations, or individuals.

6. I have a lot of patience when it comes to loved ones, creating websites, remodeling and redecorating my home.
