Monday Morning Meme and More...

Marriage means commitment. Of course, so does insanity. ~Author Unknown

1. What did you do over the weekend?

Well... you guys already know! LOL... Judy and I had a chat at the WC Yahoo group (with tons of prizes which are packed up and waiting for the post office to open). Judy was a trooper and hosted it on her own for the first 90 minutes or so while I took my DD to the urgent care. Otherwise it was pretty much same old, same old...

2. What was your first impression of your spouse or current partner? Now tell us about your first date with this person.

My VERY first impression? LOL... Um, I had towed my car over to the auto shop where he worked (it was my first full day in a new city and state and I needed the drive shaft put back in my car) and his boss and I were busy undoing the chains on the tow dolly. Next thing I know, I look over and he's there hooking them back up again! He tells me it's cuz I was distracting him (yeah... me in my sweats and no makeup, with "three days on the road" showing all over me).

Still, my poor car seemed to have lots of problems over the next couple of weeks (seriously... I wasn't trying to set things up), so we kept getting thrown together. Once, I walked in and he was blasting country music, and I loved to country dance so I asked him if he knew a place to go. He not only told me where, but told me when he'd be there next and drew me a map of the place with a big "X" where he "always" hung out.

Think that was a hint?

Still, it was amusing because I got there fairly early and found a table. I danced some and enjoyed the place. He finally showed up with a pile of friends. And every time I went to go where he was, he escorted someone to the dance floor. I'd wait until he got back and get up, and he'd be taking someone else! I finally gave up after doing that a few times. Eventually he finally noticed I was sitting a nearby table and came over. The rest was history.

3. How many lurkers do you think you have that read your blog, but never comment? Have you ever been successful at getting them to say hello? Do you mind the lurking? Are you a lurker? Or do you try and comment every time you visit?

I clearly have a lot of lurkers, because my stats tell me I have close to 100 visitors on average every day... but only 8-10 comments. I wish they'd say hi so I could check out THEIR blogs. C'mon folks... give me a shout out!

And, I seldom lurk. If I'm going to bother reading a blog with any regularity, I'm going to comment. I don't always comment the first time I'm there, but if I go back once or twice? You bet I'll say howdy.

4. Good friends is are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. (Judy stole my "coffee" answer... lol)


So... DD has made a miraculous recovery and is acting as though she never felt sick! LOL... she still has a little sniffle and the occasional cough, but for the most part, she's recovered. It amazes me, because she was truly all but on death's door on Saturday.


I'm NOT happy today is a holiday. Messes up my entire week. Seriously. I hate having my routine disrupted. What about you? Creature of habit or One Who Loves Change?

I'm glad your DD is better. The story of how you met your husband sounds like something straight out of a romance novel! As for the change thing...I'm not sure. I think there are some aspects of my life where I would not handle change very well, and others where it would be tolerable. I would guess it's that way for everyone;-)

Judy said...

RE: coffee answer... the early bird catches the worm (well.. in this case, the late bird, since I was up late and snagged the questions early).. lol

Dru said...

I love your "good friends" statement.

I'm glad DD is on the mends. Kids are so resilient.

I'm definitely a creature of habit, but do allow for small changes.

Have a good Monday.

I always read your blog, but don't always comment. Sometimes I just don't have much to say. But I love reading your blog.

Proud Mommy said...

What a great story!!!

Lisa said...

I lurk, but rarely comment.

Diane Craver said...

I'm glad your daughter is feeling great now!

Wow - reading how you met your hubby reminded me of your writing. Cool you used it in your story about the country music and etc.

I know what you mean - Sara and Amanda are home for President's Day. Of course, I'm still having trouble with retired hubby even though it's been months now. LOL

Tori Lennox said...

Oh, I love the story of how you and your husband met! :)

Brandy said...

Your meeting does sound like something from a romance story! (I know, it is, YOURS. *G*)GLad to hear you Daughter is feeling better. Isn't it amazing how quickly kids bounce back?
I am a creature of habit/routine. If it's changed I feel out of step.

I hope you have a good day!

I played as well so I went onto reading and commenting on the blogs of other players. I think it's so nice to see so many different stories of two people coming together!

Andrea said...

I know what you mean. Holidays can be either a pain or a godsend. Today was a pain day.

Ok, here's me give a shout out. Hey! What's up?

I lurk. I admit it! But, I don't always have something to say.
