Friday Feast a Day Late/Day 13

Me, me, me, me…..

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how much do enjoy watching sports on television?

9 – I am not a football widow!

If you could completely memorize any one work of fiction, which one would you pick?

This is a tough one.  For fun, it would be cool to be able to quote from a Mickey Spillane novel!  However, Frank Peretti has some wisdom worth memorizing as does Joel Rosenberg.  This is a very tough one.

What is your favorite breakfast food?

Hot tea.  Not a breakfast food?  Tell my stomach that.

Main Course
Name something fun you can do for less than $10.00.

Hang out with girlfriends and watch a good movie borrowed from the library whilst snacking on something that cost less than $10.00!  Make it a fun movie.  We just watched Calender Girls.

How long does it usually take you to fall asleep?

With or without medicinal help?  Anywhere from five minutes to five hours.


My MSN account is working again.


The Boy is doing well as far as we can tell.  I say it this way because the more I learn about addiction the less I trust him.  That sounds cruel, I know, but the nature of the beast is not trustworthy.  For example, as I was typing this entry, The Boy called to wish his father happy birthday.  Himself’s bd is tomorrow.  Did The Boy really forget or did he just want an extra phone call home?  I want to believe his intentions were pure but don’t trust my instincts, yet, where he is concerned. 

Tomorrow, Lord willing, we will, once again, head out to see our boy.  To make the trip easier, we borrowed books on cd from the library.  One of them is six hours long which is the length of the round trip without much traffic.  Can Himself stay quiet that long?  Hmmm…?   You know how research says men speak 1/3 as many words as women do in a day?  Well, that is the opposite with us.  Himself talks to himself (that sounds funny, eh?) all day long.  He doesn’t understand why I don’t remember some of the things he tells me because I tune him out after a while because I was going a bit insane answering questions that weren’t directed toward me!  

This is not to say I am not a Chatty Cathy.  I can chew off your ear as well as the next person. 

Our church is having a huge yard sale today to earn funds for a non-profit we support.  Going to head over there now so let me wish you all a wonderful weekend.  I hope and pray that you get rest and have a good time. 

blessings, g

  1. Football= 0 = I don’t care for football or any other sport very much.
    Harry Potter= Lots of cool phraes where lessons are learned and choosing what is right vs. what is wrong
    Banana and strawberrries
    Go to the movies
    According to my husband, it takes me less than five minutes to fall asleep.

    Hi Gail,
    I really don’t eat breakfast, maybe just a tiny snack to keep me until lunch.  As for sports on TV – I’d watch Olympic ice skating if given the chance.  I’m glad you have a positive report on your son.

  4. I hope you had a pleasant trip.  What book did you listen to on CD?  Just curious.  So how long will your son be in rehab?  Will he be a senior this year?  Sorry for the questions if you already answered them in your blog.  Hmmm your font is much bigger than mine…..much easier on the eyes.  Have a good one.        

  5. Hello G ~
    HB to Himself. (It is also My D-in-L, Mel’s bd 2day too.)
    Hope that the garage sale is going well! I love garage sales or estate sales or auctions!
    Also, if you ever open my space or anyone’s space and it doesn’t all load up, wait a few seconds and then refresh the page. Also, make sure to delete your temporary internet files, and cookies. That will interfere as well. 😀
    Have a blessed week, G~
    Love, Lori

  6. ¬ 10 – I’m a football [or soccer as some call it] fanatic
    ¬ Work of fiction – all the Beatles lyrics
    ¬ Breakfast – I’m usually in a rush so I just grab a blueberry muffin
    ¬ Fun for $10 – treat the other half to a Subway meal, I’m so classy
    ¬ It takes me a minute to sleep as soon I press play on my Celine Dion CD
    Take care. 😉

    Popping in to say hello.  Enjoy your Week.

  8. Hey miss G ~
    Tim is up for a vote at Spaces Hall of Fame… maybe go put a vote in for him. You’re supposed to vote for all three categories, and I only know of one… so I just put anyone down for the other two but voted for Tim.
    But anyway, maybe they wouldn’t laugh me out… they’d YELL me out. You are all expected to pull your weight and work hard. LOL… you must be kidding… SEE? They would be so in my face these days, my attitude has become not quite so gung ho as I used to be. Like fine wine, I mellowing. They were a most impressive group of people to know at one time however, and I’m most grateful for the experience. I think it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever done… (except for having an awesome son.)
    How did the trip go???? Well, I hope. Please do not totally tune out your son… try to give him the benefit of the doubt that he has changed or can change.
    OK, G ~ love the "eh" you used, yup too much MINNESOTA for you!
    Wait til you start saying "yup, you  betcha" with a norwegian accent! :-S
    Hugs and best wishes for a wonderful week for you and your family.
    It’s going to be hot and humid here… meaning you will get it in a few days too!
    See you soon, Love, Lori 

  9. I think it’s ‘Yah, you betcha doncha know’.  If you want to sound like a REAL Minnesotan.
    Okay my meal:
    5 – Only basketball and only if my team is not getting hammered.
    ??? I really have no clue on this.
    Smoothie, mmmmm.
    Go rollerblading…. or biking.
    1 minute after I stop reading.
