I’m 21

Posted by adamswife on February 19, 2008

I love this! I really like being 20 something!


You Act Like You Are 21 Years Old


You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel like an adult, and you’re optimistic about life.
You feel excited about what’s to come… love, work, and new experiences.You’re still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.The world is full of possibilities, and you can’t wait to explore many of them.

A Few Blog Things

Posted by adamswife on February 16, 2008

It has been a less-than-stellar week. The longer the week wears on the more I want to curl up somewhere and sleep for about a year. Today my eyes itch and hurt and I can’t stop sneezing. My mind seems to be on permanent vacation, too. So, I have been saving these blog things for just such a day as this. Find out which Sesame Street character you are and let us know “How’s your karma.”  Be sure to report your results in comments.  After all – inquiring minds want to know!

You Are Cookie Monster


Misunderstood as a primal monster, you’re a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.
You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you’ll eat anything if cookies aren’t around.You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking. How you life your life: In the moment. “Me want COOKIE!”

You Have Fantastic Karma


You are a kind, sensitive, and giving person.
And all your good deeds will pay off – if they haven’t already.But you’re not so concerned with what you get in return anyway.You have an innate caring nature – and nothing can change that!

A Maudlin Monday or My Life as a Porcupine

Posted by adamswife on February 4, 2008

Mice in Trouble

My brain is taking a vacation today. I can’t think of a thing that I want to write about. I could tell you about Joshua waking me up this morning to tell me his brother couldn’t find his shoes and gloves for school. Then he wanted to know why it was dark in here. “Because the lights aren’t on.” Well, being a 3-year-old it didn’t take long for him to remedy that situation.

Or maybe you’d like to hear how Emily had a fit because she couldn’t find her coat for school. She was absolutely certain she had left it “right there” on the floor in her bedroom. When we finally convinced her she’d have to wear the old coat she had another fit, sat down on the floor, and refused to go to school at all. (Mom finally took her to the bus stop.)

I’m really tired of talking about the weather, so I won’t tell you that it snowed all day yesterday, that our school district is the only one for 100 miles in any direction that is not closed for the day, or that daughter nearly didn’t make it down the street in her minivan because the snow has accumulated to such a depth.

Since I have absolutely nothing interesting to say, I will just post this Blogthing and let you read all about my past life.

You Were a Porcupine


You have created your own path in life, and you encourage others to do the same.
Even as life progresses, you always maintain a sense of wonder and innocence.

2008 New Years Questions

Posted by adamswife on January 31, 2008

Edition 3

A meme for Thursday Thirteen, with a bonus because it’s a list of 20 things. Enjoy!
Here’s the rules: Remove 1 question from below, and add in your personal question, making it a total of 20 questions, then tag 8-10 people in your list, list them out at the end of this post. Notify them in their chat box that they have been tagged.

1. At what age do you, or did you, wish to marry? I was married at 23 and again at 29. I don’t wish to marry again, ever.

2. What color do you like most? That would have to be blue.

3. Where do you want to go the most?
I don’t have a lot of desire to travel. If I have to choose something, probably the inland cruise to Alaska.


4. Which part of you do you hate the most? My dry skin. Sometimes I itch so bad you’d think I was an old dog with fleas. Scratching Dot

5. When you encounter a sad moment, what do you do? Experience it, and then move on.

6. What are you afraid to lose the most?
My sanity

7. If you win $1 million, what would you do?
Pay off all my doctors, buy a nice little house, hire a nurse so that Ed could come home until he dies.Nurse

8. What’s your wish for the year ahead? Better health than I’ve experienced in several years.

9. How did you celebrate the New Year? A party with my daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren. Everyone went to sleep before midnight except my 8-year-old grandson and me. Happy New Year

10. What one thing has had the greatest influence on your life?
My membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It has influenced everything I have ever done or hope to do.

11. Which type of person do you hate the most?
Anyone who would abuse a child in any way – sexually, physically, emotionally.

12. What is your greatest ambition?
To see my grandchildren grow to be good men and women.

13. If you had one wish what would you wish for? Money? Prestige? Fame? Fortune? World Peace? I don’t think so. I would wish to see the Second Coming of Christ.

14. Name one of your body parts your hubby or boyfriend tells you he adores: My boobs – They’re not as enticing as they used to be, but for some things he has a good memory. Rack (not mine, but very similar)

15. What is the best gift you can give someone this year? Unquestioned love

16. List two of your Top Ten New Year’s Resolutions. I didn’t make any resolutions. I have, however, taken on two challenges this year – 1) Read and ‘report’ on 50 books, and 2) use up my yarn stash and unwanted fabric to make warm things to donate next winter, probably to the women’s shelter.

17. What is the craziest thing you’ll do or have done in 2008? I don’t generally plan ahead for craziness. However, anything crazy will probably involve my favorite cousin. We have been known to supply sound effects for a too-quiet fireworks display, Fireworks to laugh until we wet ourselves, and to run away in the middle of the day to escape our children for a few hours.

18. What are the Top 2 things you are most thankful for in the year 2007 that made you even happier for 2008? One thing I’m thankful for from 2007 is blogging. I was a total novice when my friend, Zazzy, introduced me to the concept through her website Diabetic Round Table. It has helped me to feel connected to the world outside my home. It is also one of the changes that helped me out of a depression that was worsening rapidly. The other thing I am most thankful for is the improvement in my daughter’s mental health. She has struggled with mental illness related to her thyroid imbalance and resulting lack of sleep (sleep deprived psychosis) and from PTSD. She has grown stronger during 2007 and continues to be happier and healthier in 2008

19. What was the best lesson you learned in 2007? Never let a doctor operate on me with only a local anesthetic!

20. In this very moment, are you doing what you thought you’d be doing at this stage in your life?
Nope! Not even a little bit. I learned a long time ago not to make too many plans for the future. You know what Bobby Burns said about the best-laid plans. I had a vague idea that at this point in my life I would be sharing a home with my husband where we had lived for a minimum of 15 years. farmhouse We would have many friends in the community. Our family would look forward to coming to visit us. I would teach school for 9 months each year building up a nice retirement fund and then spend the summers gardening and preserving the harvest. Life happens when you’re making other plans.

More Thursday Thirteeners

I accepted a voluntary tag for this meme from Sandy at Momisodes. I will, like she, leave it up to you whether you would like to be tagged. If you decide to take the tag, let me know and I’ll add your link. Thank you.

2. Four Letter Word: Eewe – followed by “What’s that?”
3. Street: Eleventh Avenue

What Color Is Your Brain?

Posted by adamswife on January 25, 2008

I‘m not feeling too creative today.  Didn’t have anything profound or funny or even mildly interesting to say.  So I posted a “Friday Feast” thinking to skip the Haiku this week.  Then I visited Jientje and found her blogthing about the brain.  And I visited some blogs with very nice haikus posted.  What can I say?  They inspired me.  This is the result.

Didn’t know what to do
Then I learned my brain is blue
This is my haiku 
Visit A Mommy Story for more haiku
Your Brain is Blue


Of all the brain types, yours is the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don’t try to think away your troubles.Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

Good Cook?

Posted by adamswife on January 10, 2008

I picked up this quiz from Dasnowz.


You Are an Excellent Cook


You’re a top cook, but you weren’t born that way. It’s taken a lot of practice, a lot of experimenting, and a lot of learning.

It’s likely that you have what it takes to be a top chef, should you have the desire…

 Of course, I already knew that I am a good cook.  I’ve been eating my own cooking for 40+ years and I have the extra pounds to prove it. 😆 
 
I’ve written this post on Wednesday, but changed the date to Thursday.  We’ll see if it posts at the proper time.  I thought I might be in need of some ideas for tomorrow.;)
