Fill In The Blank Friday

Hooray, it’s Friday! It’s been a day of ups and downs, but I’m NOT going to whine (although I will wine *cheers*) so let’s just get on with the blanks:

1. The phrase or punctuation I overuse most is probably, um, well – the comma. And the hyphen. And….whatever.

2. Today I am thankful for having a friend who lets me shed some of my anxiety with verbal diarrhea and who can poke fun at me without being mean.

3. My best friend is my husband. Who else would I move to another continent for? Besides, he knows what a dork I can be, and loves me anyway.

4. A quirky thing about me is I always have my Kindle in my purse because I hate, well…waiting; I refuse to leave the house without under-eye concealer; and

5. This weekend I will be doing laundry and cleaning out closets, in a pre-emptive anxiety lessening activity that likely won’t help lessen my anxiety, and may actually make it worse. (Maybe I’ll just stay in bed and read.) Oh, and trying to memorize my lines for our upcoming pantomime, which, surprisingly, aren’t sticking because my head is spinning with worries. I know. Exciting.

6. Something that worries me is finding a place to live before our lease runs out this summer. I never, ever thought it would be this difficult or cause me this much anxiety.

7. On my night stand you would find a large (and likely dusty) stack of paperback books, a random pair of earrings and a lamp and a pretty candle. More dust. (The house grows it, like the cobwebs.)

  1. I’ll play Fill In The Blanks Friday.

    1. The phrase or punctuation I overuse most is…the comma, or …. Take your choice.

    2. Today I am thankful for Excedrin. I have a relentless headache over my right eye and have been chewing Excedrin every 4 hours…my stomach is a mess.

    3. My best friend is my husband and outside of him I have 3 bestie girlfriends, Christie, Amy, and my friend across the pond, Jenn 🙂

    4. A quirky thing about me is I always have Excedrin and children’s Tylenol in my purse because my kids and I are prone to headaches.

    5. This weekend I will be going to a basketball game and doing laundry…and if ambition strikes me, cleaning out the kids’ closets (but don’t count on that). Son #1 has his last basketball game of the season on Saturday (yea!)

    6. Something that worries me is the government budget cuts because my husband may lose his job and I don’t want the pressure or responsibility of being the sole bread winner. Hopefully, it will just mean a 2 month furlough…which if it wasn’t unpaid he would love.

    7. On my night stand you would find magazines, an annoying alarm clock, a random pair of earrings and ponytail holder, a lamp and A LOT of dust.

    • Yay! You’re playing along again! Miss you too, girlie! I’m hoping we can meet up this summer if I can get back to Ottawa – ditch the kids and go hang out at…wherever you hang out in Ottawa these days. (Oh, but what I would give for an Oogie’s tenderloin and root beer!)

      Get some food in that stomach girl and I hope you feel better soon!

  2. 1. The phrase or punctuation I overuse most is probably the comma, most proabably, yes, a comma, I think.

    2. Today I am thankful for having two great kids. I complain but they are great.

    3. My best friend is normally my husband but he made me pissy 5 minutes ago. So my other best friends is Angel. How can two people that are so different be so close?

    4. A quirky thing about me is that I am a grown women and eat off of a child’s divided plate.

    5. This weekend I will be cleaning (aargh).

    6. Something that worries me is my son’s learning disability and his confidence.

    7. On my night stand you would find…. I had to go look. Lots of dust. I will add nightstand to the cleaning list and coffee rings. Apparently, I am messy in the morning with my coffee and a box of tissue so I can get thru this cold!
