Friday Funnies and 7 Things



CORRECTION


Frustrated at always being corrected by my hubby, I decided the next time it happened I would have a comeback. That moment finally arrived, and I was ready.


"You know," I challenged, "even a broken clock is right once a day."


He looked at me and replied, "Twice."




Thank you, Kim, at stuff could always be worse for sharing her Kreativ Blogger Award! She is very sweet and an inspiration to everyone that meets her. So in the spirit of sharing sweet blessings, I pass this blessing along to EVERYONE. I have not visited a single blog that has not blown me away with creativity. I am so encouraged by them all, so please, share in this award and join in the game if you have time to play.

Name 7 things about yourself that others may find interesting (I‘m not sure about that part)...

I am very shy until I get to really know someone(how’s that for interesting)...

My three boys were BIG when they were born...11.8 lbs, 11.6 lbs, and 10.8 lbs (maybe not so interesting but all the moms out there can relate...with a groan perhaps)...my boys kept growing for a while...they are all between 6’4” and 6'6”...

I love to cook, make a mean Brunswick stew, and am notorious for trying out new recipes at family gatherings...

When my husband brought our first computer home years ago, I told him, “That is a waste of money...I will NEVER use it...we don’t need it”...(Never say Never)...

I enjoy watching movies when I can watch a complete one with no interruptions (happens maybe twice a few times year), but I have a hard time tolerating mindless TV chatter (can you STAND this excitement!)...

I LOVE to read and in my younger carefree days could read a novel in just a few days...now I sneak in a chapter or two when I get a chance (am I a go getter or what?)...

I enjoyed camping with my boys when they were younger and love making memories with my Grandkids now but...my very first camping experience was right after I first got married...

I remember...

Sharing a tiny pup tent with man who could sleep through anything and would sporadically snore loudly and startle me...

Feeling drops of condensation trickle down from the top of the tent that was only a few inches away from my face...

Hearing the night sounds and wondering what bugs and creatures were walking around...we were right beside a lake and visions of the Creature from the Black Lagoon stayed in my mind as I heard the waves lapping the shore...between snores of course...


So tell me 7 things about YOU and have a great Friday!

Karen, That was so funny. Don't you hate that when you think you have a good comeback and it still does not come across the way that you imagined?
congratulations on your award.
I loved reading all the new things I learned about you today.
I have another award for you if you would like to stop by and pick it up.

That was too funny!

Thanks for sharing about yourself, I have to go to the theater alone to watch a movie uninterrupted, then I still have to get up and go pee cause I drank too much!

Loved the funny! Karen, you are not a boring person by any means. I can so relate to most of what you had for interesting. Except for the first camping experience. Which reminds me, I have a great camping experience that was so funny, I'll have to use it Friday. ;) Thanks for sharing, and congratulations, you so deserve the award. You are very Kreativ.
