Meet Me on Monday!!
Welcome to the 16th edition of
“Meet Me On Monday!”
Blogging is a funny thing…we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, “who is this person!?” I know them…but yet I don’t know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to “meet” each other!
Every Sunday I will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!
“Its a great way to to meet new friends and for others to get to know me better….one Monday at a time!!!”….as quoted by the Chacogirl!! I will make this SIMPLE and FUN!!!
I will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them better!! Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog
1. How many TV’s do you have in your home?
We have 3 that work & get used regularly. There are two in the basement that DO work, but are ancient technology (ie: CRT) and really need to be recycled.
2. What is on your bedside table (nightstand)?
(IN the nightstand is another story. Maybe next week?)
3. How many pair of shoes do you own?
3 New Balance Cross trainers of varying vintages
2 pair dress shoes (black & tan Oxfords)
2 pair casual docksider style shoes
1 pair work boots
1 pair hunting boots
1 pair biking shoes
1 pair golf shoes
1 pair bowling shoes
1 pair baseball cleats
1 pair Snow Shoe boots
I guess that makes 7 pair of normal wear foot gear and 7 pair of task oriented footwear. Do slippers count?
4. Can you change a flat tire?
Certainly. I can’t do make up though.
5. Do you prefer sweet treats or salty treats?
My favorite candy bar is both – a Payday. Considering my passion for anything peanut as well, I guess I tend toward the salty. But those white chocolate/craisin/oatmeal cookies whose recipe is on the back of the craisin package are a serious weakness too.
Weekend wrap –
Got in a nice bike ride to work Friday. Hot weather for our area too. The trip home was pretty tough, near 90 degrees, 18 – 20 mph winds that I was OF COURSE pedaling into the entire way home. Nothing a soak in the tub couldn’t cure.
Attended the kids engagement party Saturday and met the majority of the brides family. Great bunch of people. I think we’ll all get along fine come the wedding day. No shotguns, police or pepper spray will be required.
Sunday was errand day. Took care of a bunch of little things on the “to do” list. Declared my intent of watching the Bills game in the afternoon. Then we had some tense moments Sunday due to what I call Cindy wanting me to my tasks her way, in her order, when she thinks they ought to be done. Ummmm, no. I need to figure out how to bring that up in counseling without sounding like I’m whining. I feel that what’s happening is Cindy is trying to manipulate situations. Why? If I had to guess, it’d be to keep me off balance. She may not even be aware she’s doing it, but it rubs me the wrong way.
In an effort to attain my 1000 mile biking goal this year, I rode in to work this morning. The weather forecast I had heard Sunday concerning todays weather sounded ok. Today’s forecast for this afternoons weather is NOT ok. By early afternoon there is a 60% chance of showers. When I looked at the radar, there was rain from the NY/Penn state line extending south into Maryland & beyond and it was all headed north. Looking again this afternoon, eh – I’m not too excited. I wanted to ride to the Y, get in a spin class then ride home. But if it’s raining this afternoon, I’ll just ride home and skip the class. What do you think the odds are of my getting to class given this map?
Yeah – not looking good. We’ll see. There’s a few hours left for the weather to change still. If I get to the Y for class I’ll have 883 miles in. If I have to go straight home, I’ll be at 879. Couple three good weeks and I’ll be there. And yes, I have headlights, tail lights, reflectors AND a flat tire recovery kit on hand at all times now.
Gotta go finish off some simulations . . .
