Pardon My Dust

The company where I work is moving and I have just had my brain drained by tons of work… but trust me as soon as I have a night where I have some time I have a couple of good subjects I want to “discuss.” How was everyone’s weekend?

Fridays Feasting

Long week, time for the lazy post :)

When someone smiles at you, do you smile back?
Even though I am the initiator of most smile exchanges, I do try to always return a smile… however a fake laugh does get on my nerves.

Describe the flooring in your home. Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix?
Mix of carpet and vinyl but would love it to be hard wood and ceramic.

Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name.
Just John

Main Course
Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption?
I know of two people that were adopted and it has been with mixed results. While they all lived very good lives, as a friend I did get to notice that they felt some kind of abandonment. I know that this does not happen to everyone that is adopted but its something that I have seen first hand and its always in the back of my head when I think of adoption.

Name 2 blue things.
I love blue, so there is a lot of stuff but right now I see the blue on the wordpress interface and the blue blinking light on the Wii.

Mother’s day

Deguia has put together a very interesting meme that I think is worth thinking about and doing. Some of us are lucky to still have both of our parents alive, some of us are not… but in the end I think remembering the good they did for us its what counts. So… lets do this for our Mother’s

Mother’s Day will take place on May 11th and while I’m not a huge fan of the whole “Corporate America wants us all to honor our mothers on one day each year” thing, I do agree that doing something a little extra for your mom is never a bad thing.

From my experience, no matter how old you are, moms love it when their kids make something for them. Often times it’s difficult to think up something creative to do for your mother, so I thought it’d be fun to start a meme to help get the creative juices flowing.

Tell me about three things, in detail, that make you really appreciate your mom!

Be specific! Think about all of the things your mother may have done for you: things she may have sacrificed, times when she went WAY above and beyond for you, etc.

To kick things off, I’ll go first:

1. My mom has a warm meal for us every single day we were growing up. This might not mean much to some people, but I know it meant the world to me. I appreciate it even more in todays world of never ending work weeks and deadlines.
2. She stayed up with me every single time that I was sick. She would do special meals for me and nurse me back to health every single time.
3. My mom sacrificed the best days of her life for me. She was just 16 when she had me and growing up I never thought of her as one of the after school special girls. She never made me feel like I had stopped her life or was a big sacrifice.

Your turn! Leave me a comment at Deguia’s and let him know that you’ve done this meme, he really wants to check out what you wrote!
