Sick Meme

Our house is sick. Okay, right now it is just me, but when Mama gets sick the whole house falls apart.  Can’t let the blog fall apart too!  Figured this is the perfect time to complete this fun little meme I came across.  I have to note that I believe in giving credit where credit is due, the problem?  My fever addled brain can not recall where it came from!  I know it was from a regular reader and commenter so when you see this meme claim it baby and I will update and link back to you!

A-Z Meme

A. Age: 39. The big 4-0 is next month and I plan to talk about it until you are all sick of me.

K. Kids: Two beautiful girls my oldest who is now 12 I call BlueEyes, and the youngest is 9 I refer to as SweetGirl.  These silly names don’t begin to sum up the incredible little people they are, but it does helps protect their anonymity.

M. Mom’s name: Not telling.  Just Mom. What? I don’t want her googling herself and finding my blog.

Q. Quote from a movie: Seriously?  OK “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.” Forest Gump. The older I get, the more sense this quote makes. Besides, Forest Gump is like the best movie ever.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Let’s not talk about that sad tale.  It has a happy ending, so all it well!

Y. Yummy food you make: I can bake does that count?  Cookies, cupcakes, muffins and cake.  Hmmm perhaps that is why my jeans are a tad snug. 

Z. Zoo Animal Favourites: I like the monkeys. Haven’t you always wanted a monkey?

Is anyone sick at your house, having a little writers block, just looking for a fun meme?  Feel free to play along. 

Wishing you all a healthy and happy weekend.


  1. ugh…hope you all feel better…this the silly season between hot and cold weather where sick happens….

  2. Fun. I just might have to play along, too. And, yes, I like monkeys. If you stare at them long enough, you can really see the similarities. It’s kind of freaky. Oh, really in gorillas, too! I’ve have an appendix scar (ugly) and one from a c-section, too (at least that one is low enough it doesn’t show in a bathing suit). Coffee-a must in the morning!

    Hope you feel better soon. 🙂 There’s nothing worse than being sick.

    Have a nice weekend!
