Five more posts to go and I will reach 100 which is very cool. I don't know what to say, odds are it will take me at least a month to reach that milestone. While my mind is flooded with thoughts, articulation has been difficult.

I was tagged for a meme, as someone earlier stated - I like anything with the word "me" in it.

This meme was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith & Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. Apparently, Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were, “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.” The book is a compilation of similar 6 word stories. This meme challenges us to do the same:


1. Write your own six word memoir.

A life complete with beautiful moments.

2. Post it to your blog including a visual illustration if you would like. Hmm, I will have to pass on this portion, sorry :-(.

3. Link to the person who tagged you - the faboulousness that is Kate

4. Tag 5 more bloggers - Here are my 5 - Jules, Ally, Amanda, Emily and Candice

5. Don’t forget to leave a comment in the tagged blogs with an invitation to play - Check.

On the homefront...

I know I should be enjoying every free moment (HAHAHAHA) left of this bonding time but I have to vent about something -

If I have to watch the movie Enchanted one more time - I might try to make a dress out of my chocolate brown crushed velvet drapes and tra-la-la through the park asking out loud "How do you know that you love her?" all the while searching for my true love's kiss (d). Big girl is HOOKED on this movie and while we are not fans of the tv acting as a babysitter, she only wants to watch the parts while they are dancing. Duane waltzed with her in the living room this evening while I pounded the keyboard looking for ballet classes for our tiny dancer.

Hee. I watched Enchanted when I was home recovering from the surgery. Great movie, but I don't think I ever want to watch it ever again, 'cos it might irritate the crap out of me if I did. Kudos to you for putting up with it.

And that's a very sweet 6 word memoir. This has been a fun meme.

Aww. I love your memoir!
And ballet classes! That would be awesome!

Ahh ... how sweet!! I can just imagine Duane waltzing with Big Girl in your living room.

Dance classes ... excellent idea!!

Emily (Apron Strings) said...

Oh yeah. And I'll get to that meme ... uhm ... immediately!! (says one of the biggest procastinators in the world!) :-)

Hahahaha, I know how you feel. I think KC has watched the movie 'Elf' well over 100 times at our house and even though Nathaniel's not even a year old, he adores 'Finding Nemo' and it's literally one of the only things that will calm him down sometimes :)

I think ballet lessons are a perfect idea! I still remember taking ballet and tap dance lessons when I was younger. I think it's a fantastic idea to put them in things they show even the slightest interest in, that way they can explore and find out what they really love.

Plus, I know for KC- being in tee-ball gives him such pride when everyone comes out to show their support for him, I'm sure she's going to love having something all her own if you do decide to put her in a class!

Erm ... I just got around to doing this.
