Meet Me On Monday


We get to know each others' innermost thoughts through blogging, and we meet wonderful people through blogging.  Meet Me On Monday gives us a chance to get to know each other better.  Click on the above button, answer the questions in your blog, then link up and meet some new people, and get to know some of your friends better!


1. What one food could you eat every single day?
Yogurt.  Probably because I do eat it every day when I'm being good and eating like I'm suppose to!

2. Do you wear glasses or contacts?
Oh, yes!  I'm probably close to being legally blind without my contacts.  I got my first pair of glasses when I was in 2nd grade.  I needed them in first grade, but mom thought I just wanted to be like everybody else in my family!  (I only have one sibling who doesn't wear corrective lenses...we used to get a discount from the place where bought our glasses!)   I think she felt really bad when she took me to the eye dr. just to find out how poor my eyesight was!
I got my first pair of contacts my sophomore year in high school.  I worked at the pool and saved up my money so  I could get them.  They were around $130 and were the hard kind.  I eventually switched over to gas permeable, and then just a few years ago, to extended wear.  I think I still have my original hard contacts somewhere,  unless I finally threw them out when we moved from SC! 

3. What kind of cell phone do you have?
After having a Nokia something or other for about 6 years, I finally got to use my upgrade for myself and got a Samsung Intensity.  (The 2 oldest boys kept breaking theirs right around the time it would be time  for me to upgrade.  Oh, the things we sacrifice for our kids!)  Nothing fancy; it's not a smart phone, but it does have a Qwerty keyboard that I'm loving!

4. What did you have for dinner last night?

Super nachos from  our favorite Mexican restaurant!




5. What is your favorite candy?
Well, Java, you finished with a doozy, didn't you?!  I guess my all time favorite is Butterfinger.  But, I also like Zero bars every now and then.  And, when I was pregnant with MS, I craved Milky Ways.

  5. These are fun questions and good one's for getting to know someone. I eat yogurt most every day also, but I'd usually rather have a Butterfinger.

  7. My youngest got glasses when she was 12. She promptly 'misplaced' them and I was like your mom...her vision barely needed correcting and I thought it was a 'style' thing. When I asked her about the missing glasses she said they didn't help anyway. We went back several months (ooops) later and I was reading a magazine when I heard the dr. tell her to read the line that was most comfortable. She said, "I think that's an E' WHAT!!! Her vision had gotten so much worse. She too is pretty much blind without them. Not my finest mothering moment : )

    Have a nice week!
