*answering the fun questions provided each week by the fabulous Cee – check out her blog so you can play along, too!*
Did you ever get lost?
Hmmmm. Metaphorically or literally? It matters not. The answer to both is yes. :)
When I was young (six years old, I think), I got “lost” …but not lost. I was at the mall with my mom when, from the doorway of the store we were in, I could see books on shelves in a store across the way. I asked my mom if I could go look at the books, and she said I could. Quite a while later, I was pounced upon by mall security (who, at that age, I fully believed were the police) saying I had been quite naughty and my mother was worried sick. Confusion. I told the man that I had permission to be where I was and had not left where I told my mom I would be, but he didn’t believe me. He walked me to where my mom was waiting, and she was, indeed, quite frantic. The whole time the security officer was acting like I had just murdered 28 people or some such vile thing.
It turns out that there were also some books in the store my mom and I had originally been in, and those were the books she thought I was asking if I could go admire. It was just a misunderstanding…no naughtiness involved. Luckily, this all got cleared up in front of the security officer, so I was able to give him the haughtiest “I told you so” look that a six-year-old can muster. ;)
Who was your best friend in elementary school?
I had two besties in elementary school…Amy M. and Michael W. Michael was my neighborhood bestie, and Amy was my school bestie. I’m still in touch with Michael (who goes by Mike now), but I haven’t seen Amy since I ran into her at a Cure concert while in high school.
Since the news television season has started in the US, list three favorite TV shows.
We actually don’t have cable, so I don’t keep up with new seasons and things. I do, however, spend lots of quality time with Netflix. I’m currently working my way through Criminal Minds…with a dash of Merlin on the side. :)
If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?
You would see me halfway watching TV while working on some project (knitting or lesson planning or some such thing) and babbling with John and Grace. John, currently, is spending his evenings playing The Sims 4…except when Grace has wrestled the computer away from him so she can play The Sims 4. :) When not playing on her daddy’s computer, Grace does what teenagers do…she texts with her friends and goofs around on the inkerwebz. Frank lounges and is treated to belly rubs and blanky time as a dog of his reputation and stature should be. ;)
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Right now I am so, so grateful that the lovely dishwasher installation fellas are in my kitchen at this very moment. Squeeee! I’m also grateful for an uneventful and safe trip to go pick Grace up from her Grandma, an afternoon of Panera and Hot Topic with Grace yesterday, and a project (entirely unrelated to the ramblings of this blog) that is going quite well.
In the week coming up, I’m looking forward to getting my first tattoo! (Really, really super looking forward to that!) I’m also looking forward to using that new dishwasher and continued progress on some projects.
Now, I do so hope that you’ll share part of your world with the rest of us. :D
