Manic Monday


Hey there...it's the late edition of Manic Monday. It's been a fairly uneventful day around here. Aaron had swimming lessons. I washed a bunch of sheets and blankets and hung them out at my parents' s huge clotheslines for some fresh air and sunshine drying. I took Aaron bowling this afternoon, and now I'm about to make dinner. Exciting, huh?


Here are this week's questions:


What is your ideal age? I don't have any idea. I'm still learning to be a grownup at 43. And in a few weeks I'll be 44. But there are times I wish I was still in my 30s.

What is your best excuse for being late? The kids. Blaming them works for almost every situation.

If you had to give yourself a nickname what would it be? How about "Sexy"? har, har. Seriously, I kind of like "Hoosier Girl". But I also like some of the nicknames Steven has for me. (sorry - private)

Sad Mondays

Have a great day!

It's weird - none of us 40+ folk taking part in this week's MM, seem to want to go back to our twenties or teens. I quite like being 40+ :). Happy MM!

Miss Britt said...

Wait. You're in your 40's??

I thought you were younger than that!

I suppose that means you could just TELL people you're in your 30's. :-)

I passed 40 some time back and barely slowed down. Glad to see that you are keeping your head above water with all the flooding going on in Hoosierland.

Haha, I feel like blaming your kids would work pretty well.

Happy Monday! :)

Siani - Hey thanks for stopping by. I like being the age I am. Actually, I would like to be mid-30s and be "who I am" now.

Miss Britt - You are now officially my best friend! Truthfully, I have always looked younger than I am. Now it's the fact that I have an an 18 year old son that gives me away.

Just Dave - No flooding down here in Southern Indiana, thankfully. You don't seem like the type to slow down. (wink)

Shen-Shen - Isn't that what kids are for? Slave labor and reasons for sick days! Ha, ha!
