–RULES–

1. Please follow both of the hosts: Myself and Kenzie

2. Include the super cute button in your post (grab the code above)

3. Link-up and spread the word

4. Don’t forget to have fun!

 

Answer these as best you can:

QUESTIONS–

1.) Do you have a good memory?

2.) Share a memory you have from when you were 10 or younger

3.) Share a memory from between the ages of 10 and 20

4.) Share a memory from recently that you won’t forget for a long time

5.) Do you have any memories that you apparently remember differently than from what people tell you?

ANSWERS–
1.) I think my memory is holding up, though I no longer have the capacity to remember names and faces like I used to. I would say even in undergrad, I could still remember all my teachers’ names and even most of my elementary classmates. These days, I don’t have enough space in my gray matter, what with three kids and multiple jobs. But I still remember A LOT of random stuff. Oh, and I seem to have an infinite capacity for song lyrics.memory1
2.) Your memory doesn’t have to be Fall/Halloween related but the first thing I thought of was this time we were visiting my family’s home in Western New York. We usually drove all the way from South Florida to little old Salamanca, but when I was right around 10, we flew into Newark and then drove across the state. We drove through so many cute little towns with beautiful old homes, all decorated for Halloween. They had pumpkins on the porch steps and Fall leaves adorning the cute gabled roofs each home seemed to have. This one town – and Lord help me if I could remember the name – had a cute divided main road and the town had also decorated the median. The weather was, of course, cool, and when we stopped at a gas station at the end of that road, I looked back down the avenue and wished I could live in such a wondrous place some day.

3.) OK so I let my subconscious roam and it hit on the memory – nothing specific – but the general memory  – of my Saturday nights when I was a Sophomore and Junior in college. My three roommates and I would start drinking around 6, get ready around 9 and by 10, were headed to Brothers (yes, the gay club) for some dancing. We had a bunch of gay friends and really, they played the best music. They also had a drag show that was pretty amusing. Then when we were over the drinking and loudness and were tired, we’d come home, make grilled cheese on the George Foreman, and pass out until mid-morning. Ahh, those were the (interesting) days.

4.) Ok so it might sound cheesy but that Luke Bryan concert was some of the best fun I have had in a while. So many aspects of it will cement it in my mind for a long time. I had fun being with my friends, being unfettered by children (and I have my awesome husband to thank for that), and I felt totally free. Sometimes I let life beat me down a little too much and that was exactly what I needed to unburden myself.

5.) Ha ha yes, but the only one I can think of was this time Ash and I ran the same race and he swears I finished, like, an hour after him. But I KNOW it was only about 20 something minutes. Conversely, (and speaking of 20 minutes) I felt like I was pushing during Baby Girl’s labor for an hour AT LEAST, but Ash tells me it really was only 20 minutes. Sure, buddy! 😉

  1. hahaha! I giggled when I read how you & Ash view those two events differently! Sounds like something couples do often. 😉 I’ve heard my brother and his wife argue similarly. My brother is always very precise, and his wife will say, “Oh the baby was down for a two hour nap this afternoon,” and he’ll say, “Actually, she went down at 1 and was up at 2:25 so it wasn’t two hours” – usually draws a sarcastic reply along the lines of, “Sorry, I MEANT that the baby was asleep for 1 hour, 42 minutes, and 36 seconds…” Can’t blame her. He can be annoying. 😉

  2. Isn’t that so weird – I can remember song lyrics from my favorite songs from 1st grade but I can’t remember what I did yesterday! Ha ha!
    I love driving through sweet little towns like that.
    A grilled cheese sounds really good right about now.. actually. I’ve always wanted to go to a drag show, I think it would be so fun!
    Happy Wednesday!
