"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first one
being -- hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint."
Good morning all and happy Friday! I think this quote is hilarious! When I read it for the first time I laughed and laughed and laughed... I don't iron. If something needs to be ironed it is not worn. I buy clothes that are wash and wear. If it is wrinkled it goes to the back of my closet and doesn't come out. How lazy am I? It gets thrown in the washer and then into the dryer and then gets hung up or folded. If it doesn't look good after that, well, it is never worn again. LOL I have the luxury of doing this because I have too many clothes. I need to give some away, in fact. Anyone need any clothes?
I talked to Krissy a couple of days ago and she wanted me to let everyone know that the computer at the Hope House is no longer available for use. I think it died. She went to the library and that one is not available for her either, so she is not able to do any entries. She can't access her journal or her email. She sends her love and wanted everyone to know that she does not know when she will be able to have access to a proper computer. On the positive side, if you have not read her MDS journal yet, you will want to know that John is doing great!! He got test results back that show that his immune system is now 84% of the donor's immune system. In other words, the transplant is working!! 84% is an extremely high number for the first test!! Your prayers and love are working!! Thank you all!!
I was thinking about what to do for "Wordplay" today all morning. If anyone has any ideas about future "Wordplay" installments, let me know! I will give you credit! Christina, I have yours! I love it and will use it soon! So, I think I will talk about nicknames today....
Do you have any nicknames? What are they? How did you get them? Is there a funny story behind them? What about childhood nicknames?
Leave your answers in the comments section or write your responses in your own journal and leave the URL to your entry so I can go read them!!
My answer: I am called "Val", which is, of course, shortened from Valerie. I am also, "Mom" and "Mommy". My other nickname is "Lav". I have had that for many years. That comes from childhood when my younger sister wrote my name all over the bathroom wall. She was just learning to write and she spelled it backwards! I have been called "Goosebumps" by a couple of friends because I get goosebumps easily. I was also called, and I can't believe I am telling you this, "Spanky" because I looked like Spanky from the Little Rascals for awhile. That was when I was little. I also had a couple of nicknames as a child that I WILL NOT mention because my siblings were cruel. LOL I haven't really had too many nicknames as an adult, though.
What are/were your nicknames?
On another note, I was thinking about doing a second entry on pets because more readers came back and told me about their critters. If you would like to send me pictures of your pet, please do so!! I would love to see them and hear about them!! Thanks!!
Have a good day, all! xox
