Friday Fill In #173

1. Where are my summer clothes?
2. If wishes were horses I wouldn’t have any. (Horses are expensive and needy and–in my opinion–kinda stinky.)
3. I’d like to see my house sold!
4. When I was a teen, I thought up this great name for a high school paper column; it was called “Bill’s Psychedelic Etch-A-Sketch Lunchbox.” (I wrote that column for two years. It was “Bill’s” because it was mine; “Psychedelic” ’cause I liked the sound of it; “Etch-A-Sketch” because it was always changing; and “Lunchbox” because it was full of good things.)
5. One of my mother’s favorite sayings was “Good-bye, I love you, be good.” (Either that or “If you’re too sick to go to school, you’re too sick to do anything else.”)
6. I’d have a hard time doing without my before bed snack–even though I know I should give it up.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to making supper for my favorite girls, tomorrow my plans include the first lawn mows of the season, and Sunday, I want to take a nap after church and Sunday lunch!

Friday Fill-In #171

1. In 1992, I was in college, working at McDonalds, playing in a band, and not married to Susan. (One of these things still holds true!)
2. I really need a day that is all just laughter and smiles.
3. Do what you your Dad would do, with what you have in the trunk, where you break down in the car.
4. Snuggling with Susan in bed is where I’d like to be.
5. The trees and flowers are telling me that soon I’ll need to learn how to use the “new to me” riding lawn mower.
6. I have this ear infection that just keeps going on.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to an evening at home with a yummy risotto, tomorrow my plans include watching the kids so Susan can go on VBS training, and Sunday, I want to start a wicked awesome Sunday School class on Exodus and Leviticus!
