My pal Mere at The Babblings of Mere is doing a 30 day challenge on her blog. She has a list of 30 miscellaneous topics that she can write about each day. While I don’t think I will do all of them (because I don’t think I’m capable of writing about my 3 favorite colors), I do want to try some of them.
Anything to help lead me back into the world of habitual blogging!!
I started this post on Monday but had some trouble with pictures, so I'm playing a little catch up.
#1 Your middle name, and how you feel about it
I happen to like my middle name very much. It’s simple, it’s short, and it came from my father.
Lee is my father’s middle name, and the only story I ever heard was that it came from someone who saved or impacted my grandfather’s life in some way. That might be true. Or it might have been a little story someone made up to make me feel like my name was somehow more special. Not that they needed to – I’ve always liked that part of my name comes from my Dad. It’s something that we share that’s unique to anyone else in the family.
#2 Talk about your piercings or tattoos, if you have any
I don't happen to have any tattoos, and my piercings are pretty standard -- two in each ear. Originally I had my ears pierced as a little girl, I think when I was in 3rd or 4th grade, but unfortunately I wasn't so good at taking care of them and eventually we let them heal up. We gave it a whirl again in jr. high, and this time I figured it out. Later, during my sophomore year, I was at the mall with my friend Candie and we decided I should get double piercings. I remember worrying a little that maybe I should be okaying this with my mom first, but I also knew she wasn't the type to think this was a bad idea. Sure enough, she didn't really care. Because it also happened to be the day that my parents went to "back to school" night and met my teachers -- who told them I wasn't doing so well in school -- and I was subsequently grounded for the rest of my life.
Good day -- bad day.
#3 Your favorite television program
I'm torn!! There are so many good shows out right now that I love for different reasons! So let me give three. Because it's my blog and I can if I want to!
For laugh out loud hilarious when I need a smile there's Modern Family. Does it get any better than this??
For more drama when the kids are asleep, I love The Good Wife. Great writing, great characters, great stories. I love this show! And I swear it's not just because Mr. Big is on it. (Though it doesn't hurt.)
There, I'm caught up to day 3 of the challenge. If you join in, be sure to comment here so that I can go and read yours!
