Well, the best answer would be to complete my blogging schedule on the days they are scheduled for! Hahaha! A day late is better than never…..
It’s not so much that I forget the same thing on a regular basis but what I do forget is to write myself notes because I always forget to remind myself of stuff. For example, I have crazy weird dreams sometimes. I have been meaning to put a notepad by the bed so that I can write down the names of the people I dream about. I mean the other night I had a dream about one of my close friends and her mother. I don’t even remember thinking about her per say recently. But often people from my past pop into my dreams and I am surprised that they were part of my dream. I just thought it would be neat to keep track of the people over a longer length of time. Strange, I know but….

Today I ask you to name 5 things that you wish would disappear from the world in 2022. Here’s my list :
COVID and all its derivatives
Donald Trump and all of his cronies
Inflation and unemployment: you can’t walk in to any establishment and ask for a job, then get one. Now it is the “initial interview” then the second interview with “the hiring manager”. Next is the interview with “the panel”…then you don’t get the job because they filled it already. What a waste of time!
Spiders that can be seen by a person: Yes, they are good for the environment, they are harmless, they eat bugs…I can’t look at them and recently the nightmares have come back…
New food variations: I am so tired of going to the store and you can no longer find a candy bar like the old days – now they have candy hidden in them or pretzels! I saw a Reese’s the other day with potato chips! Wtf! Put a reeses on top of a chip and bite…there you go, they don’t need to manufacture it! Chips! Are there any regular chip flavored chips? A good old Coca Cola….not vanilla or orange, not diet with energy…Normal stuff!
1. What is meant by jumping bail? It’s the game the farmer’s children play when all the hay is baled. Sort of like Leap Frog bug out in the field. 2. What is a skipping rope?

It means you were lucky enough not to hit it and destroy your car. 7. What are air kisses? a more polite way that telling someone they are an ass kisser 8. What is meant by shooting one’s mouth off? It’s a horrible form of suicide 9. What does a dentist do? The opposite of a straightenist 10. What is a ruff? No one knows…dogs speak their own language
Thanks Di for the fun! Now, I get to go and read everyone elses answers.
What makes you feel lucky? Is it a four leaf clover, a rabbit’s foot, or a lucky penny? I don’t think anything really brings luck except chance.I have had “lucky charms” over the years but nothing that ever lasted. I do love eating Lucky Charms! My favorite cereal!
What are you superstitious of? Will you walk under a ladder? What’s your lucky number? What if a black cat crosses your path? I am superstitious…I won’t pick up a “tails up” penny, I would walk under a ladder if I couldn’t go around it, I think black cats are mysterious but not scary. I am more of a believer of Karma rather than superstitions, if that is a comparative belief. I do think #2 is my lucky number but its more of an OCD thing than luck, I like things in two’s. Many years ago my late husband used to play his lucky numbers every week for the lottery. One week he didn’t get to it and yes, as you guessed, his numbers came up. I don’t think he would’ve been a millionaire but it was a big win. After that he never played the same numbers nor have I.
Where did you learn ideas concerning luck? Do you still have superstitions in your adult life? I don’t think I ever heard my parents talk about luck or superstitions. Most of my “knowledge” was regular kid stuff; lucky rabbits foot, 4 leaf clover…
Since this is the last week of the year I am curious – do you make resolutions, eat specific foods, or have traditions or superstitions to usher in the new year? I don’t make resolutions per say since they don’t stick. It isn’t that I won’t continue but honestly I forget. There have been times I would stop eating junk food, for example, then next thing you know I am buying chips and some ice cream, totally forgetting, but still feeling like it’s a fail. As a kid we used to run out at midnight banging pots and pans. As an adult we used to spend the night with my friends. I like the gatherings but not crazy about loud parties. Many years I have fallen asleep. I do like watching the ball drop in NYC, I think it looks like everyone is having a good time, even though I don’t want to be there!
What is better than staying in bed on Sunday morning? A fancy breakfast of course. While many of us are in a rush on weekday morning s, Sunday is when there is time and inclination for a long leisurely breakfasts or brunches What are yourfavourites?
These are in no particular order since I have some real favorites, it just depends on the day…
Waffles: Each nook cradling melted butter with Mrs. Butterworth Syrup (yes, I will do the real thing if it is available).
2. Fried eggs with “Fake” American cheese slices melted on top. Yes, I like the fake stuff! You know – Land O Lakes slices, Kraft slices, welfare cheese…whatever you want to call it.
3. Swiss Cheese Omelet
4. Lucky Charms cereal
5. Bacon, Egg, and Cheese on a Hard-roll
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day usually and is sometimes also lunch and dinner. Additionally, I do enjoy cold left-overs for breakfast too!
How do you remember moments in your life – what is your process for bringing your memories back to life?
Do you think the memories you have of your life from your yesterdays are an honest recollection – or do you think that they change with every re-telling?
in your opinion how deep is your long termmemory?
What are some of yourvery first memories?
Funny that this is the question today…David loves looking at pictures, he does it all the time. I found that I have a hard time sometimes just because of all the loses I have had. Memories, especially this time of year, are hard for me. Yes, they bring about good memories but they also bring sadness knowing that some of them are the only memories I will ever have. I think when I want to remember I try to envision myself in the moment I am trying to think of. This helps me think with clarity. If I can recall myself in the situation I feel like my recollections are quite accurate. That being said, it’s all my interpretation isn’t it?
I can recall things from when I was probably three or four years old. I remember going to a babysitter’s house and sitting on the top bunk of the bunkbed they had. I remember a different babysitter that had hens and I was allowed to go look for eggs. I also remember she had channel 56 on her television and that channel had all the good cartoons during the week! Bugs Bunny, Sylvester and Tweety…I remember the first day of school in my new kindergarten class and being scared out of my mind but my friend Sarah dragged me in and told me it was fun. We had chocolate milk for snack. I have tons of bits and pieces and it is fun when all of a sudden I remember something totally new. Who knows if the memories are accurate? I don’t have anyone to really confirm one way or another. That’s life…
Considering how last year went and the current state of things, do you have any plans for Halloween this year? Will you be going to any costume parties, handing out trick-or-treat candy, or just staying at home with the porch light off so no one will bother you? Please let us know!
I remember as a kid getting dressed up and loving that and I remember going trick-or-treating but I don’t think I ever loved it. When my kids were little I loved dressing them up and tried opting to stay home and hand out candy rather than walk the streets. I guess I just never saw it as a true fun activity.
Now we are in a 55 and older condo complex. I think this would be a great place for little ones because they could go door to door without having to go in the street but I have no idea what they do here. Considering I am a sugar-hog I will most likely buy candy just in case…just in case I want to eat it! Lol. Honestly, I do the lame thing and go to CVS the day after and get the candy for 50% off!
