Happy Meme Monday: Parenting And Coffee

Parenting is amazing, it’s rewarding and joyous with of course the occasional tidbits of tantrums and loud crying. And then there’s the exhaustion, lack of sleep, sleep deprivation and constant unsolicited advice. The one thing they fail to mention though is how much coffee will be consumed. I’ll have to admit, I drink my morning coffee and immediately crave a second cup, but self control kicks in and I don’t. So here’s the lesson of the day, when preparing for babies arrival, plan to include a nice stockpile of coffee – you’re  welcome!

Happy Meme Monday: Morning School Days

This is officially week two of the school year. Which only means, I’ve survived week one! I have one middle school-er (is that even a word?!) and the rest are in elementary. This years mornings have become a tad bit longer as there are five or my six kids going to school, and this phone meme sums up my mornings!

Mine looks more like the second phone – just in case you’re wondering.

Happy Meme Monday: Older and Wiser?!

I know some would say, ‘the older you are, the wiser you are.’ I would disagree on that and only because of my own personal experiences with a few older individuals. This meme here reminds me of the one of many looks we give when someone says something ludicrous. Also, let it be known that the ‘stare’ and a good laugh to follow go hand in hand.

Happy Meme Monday: Grammar Gone Wrong – Your and You’re

A great meme on a classic mistake – or grammatical error. Not sure, but either way, it’s something that can be misconstrued like in this meme, that I find way funnier than perhaps it actually is.

Since we’re on the topic of these typical errors that happen often, are you the type that corrects someone on their grammatical errors, or not? And, what words do you find are the ones often written incorrectly?

Sunshine Blogger Award – 3

Thank you to the very witty and lovely blogger Sean over at The Land Manatee – if you haven’t read his responses, you must! Because who wouldn’t want to be sipping on some ‘Cuba Libre’ otherwise known as ‘una mentirita’ or ‘little lie’ while trying to decide whether to travel to Italy or Greece?!

About the Sunshine Blogger Award:

This award is given to bloggers by other bloggers who feel they display positivity, creativity, and sunshine via their content. It’s an honor to be recognized by your colleagues and peers. It keeps the motivation high which is essential in the writing community.

The Rules For the Award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions you’ve been asked.
  3. Nominate 11 new bloggers and ask them 11 questions.
  4. Inform your nominees through commenting on their post.

Sean’s Questions for His Nominees:

1. Why did you start blogging?

To shed some light on Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia.

2. What have you learned along the way and how have you improved as a blogger?

Consistency is key. Also, connecting with your subscribers, being able to answer to the comments is appreciated.

3. What’s a challenge in life you overcame?

Lack of self-confidence. I’ve realized that you’ll never truly make others happy. Because when others are unhappy with themselves, they’ll find a reason to put you down, no matter what you do. So, I’ve learned to overcome and stop trying to make others like me and have gained self-confidence along the way.

4. Who has been a big influence on your life?

Because I live with chronic pain, I’ve learned to look up and not down. In other words, Jesus.

5. Do you have a hidden talent? If not, what do you wish it was?

I like Sean’s answer to number 9 – patience, God knew what He was doing when He sent me my little ones, it’s not always easy, but definitely worth it.

6. Where would you like to be in your life in 5 years?

I’d love to move somewhere in the Orlando area. We’re Disney Annual Pass Holders and can’t get to Disney World as many times as we’d like – even living just a few hours away.

7. What would your dream job be and why?

It’d be something in the legal field. I was working in the legal field before becoming a full time stay at home mom, and my heart loves the legal world.

8. How would you describe your perfect day?

No medicines and a pain free day!

9. If you decided to move to a new country or city, where would you want to live and why?

Somewhere in the Orlando area, close to the Disney World parks. I’d like to take advantage while my kids are still little.

10. What famous person or celebrity at any point in history would you like to meet and what would you want to talk about or ask that person?

I would love to meet this super star – in my eyes, Keala Settle from the movie “The Greatest Showman.” The song “This Is Me” has become an anthem in my heart and I’d love to let her know just that, ” … I’m not scared to be seen, I make no apologies, this is me.”

If you haven’t seen the movie, or heard this amazing woman sing, I share this clip with you below.

11. In what fundamental way have you changed over the years?

A health diagnosis in 2013 changed me – for the better or worse, I’m still trying to figure that out, but it’s definitely helped me appreciate today.

Simply Chronically Ill

Happy Meme Monday: My Original Weight, Literally

When it comes to weight, I’d say it’s a touchy subject. While some are open to talking about it, others are perhaps too sensitive to speak on the matter. Let me be honest though, thinking about my own weight, either I was ‘too’ thin, then at a ‘good’ weight and now – I’m just too sensitive to speak on the matter. Because well, chronic pain and six kids have done a number on me and I’m OK with that. But to lighten the mood on the controversial subject I wanted to share this meme – enjoy!
