A busy week and fill in fun

August 23, 2012

It seems this week I went from one appointment to the next.

Middle had an eye check up, the boy started golf practice and Middle dance camp.

I went driving back and forth to school, the golf course and home.

Sometimes all in one day.

Today was a doozy…

Middle had to be at school for dance camp, then we had some time (the boy got a new pair of shoes and so did this mommy) and the boy had to go to practice, from there we went back to school to pick her up, drove home, grabbed a bite to eat.

Then the boy and I headed out again back to school for middle school orientation and finally got home at 8pm.

On top of it all my poor hubby has been on the couch sick for two days.

It’s been fun.

Tomorrow promises to be another busy day with open house for both Middle and the boy, at separate times.

After this week I kinda look forward to the routine of the school year.

Seems we’ll be spared major troubles from the hurricane that’s heading in our direction and should only have to deal with some rain.

Now, time to fill in some blanks.

Each week, Hilary plans on listing four statements with a blank for us to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at feelingbeachie@gmail.com. If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is Pam from Trooppetrie she came up with the last two statements….

Hilary would LOVE it if you could please help her spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

Here are this week’s statements:

  2. I have never been to ­­­­____
  3. The hobby I love the most is_____________ and one day I will ____________________.
  4. My favorite store to shop at is______________because_______________________.
My answers:
1. I hate olives. Well, most of them… there is one kind I eat in a salad but other than that I just don’t like the taste of them.
2. I have never been to the Pacific Northwest. One day I want to go and see it all… Seattle, Vancouver and maybe even Anchorage… I want to see the Northern Lights.
3. The hobby I love the most (right now) is photography and one day I will be a professional photographer. 
4. My favorite store to shop at is Target because of all the variety of things I can get… clothes for me and the kids, groceries, books, toys and so on. Just love Tarjay!!! 🙂
Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend.

Follow Friday Four Fill in Fun #68

June 21, 2012

Friday again. Where did the week go?

The two older kids had a great week at camp… 4 field trips. They got to see Madagascar 3 on Monday, spent time at the beach on Tuesday, roller skating at Kabooms on Wednesday and today a trip to Lion Country Safari. They are exhausted. Tomorrow is a regular camp day. They’ll need the break. 🙂 Middle is looking forward to next week. They’ll get to go ice skating and that’s one of her favorite things to do.

As for me, I had a nice week. Tuesday, I got to spent time with the lovely Nicole from By Word Of Mouth Musings and a friend of hers. We had a great time sitting and chatting. Little One enjoyed spending time with Nicole’s daughter and had a blast on the playground. It’s so nice that I got to meet another blogger locally. I love to pick her brain.

I’ve been thinking about the idea of inviting you my fellow bloggers for guest posts here once or twice a month. I’m still trying to figure out the how’s and what’s and so on. Let me know if you have any ideas, anything you’d like to share. I would really appreciate your input. Thanks! 🙂

Anyways, time now to join Hilary of Feeling Beachie fame for her Friday hop. Each week she posts four statements with blanks for us to fill in on our own blogs.

1.       I love a ___

2.       If I could ____ anywhere I would ____

3.       When I grow up, I want to ________

4.       the best _________________ I ever ____________________

My answers:
