New Thing #227--Who, Meme?

So I was minding my own business this morning and clicking through to blogs I enjoy from the St. Louis Bloggers site. Lo and behold, I read that I was tagged for a meme (the Internet equivalent of a chain letter) by Gregg at One Dad's Life! Today, for the first time, I completed a meme.

Four place I go to over and over: work (four afternoons a week), Gold's Gym (almost every weekday and on Saturdays when I can guilt myself into getting up early), church (weekly), and Schnucks for groceries.

Four people who e-mail me (regularly): Everyday I get two daily spiritual readings and three e-mails from DearReader.com (similar to an online book club). Hubby Tony is always sending me things I need and want to know. I get excited when I see any of my childrens' names or my friend Dani's name in my Inbox.

Four places I would rather be right now: visiting son Tony in Tulsa, visiting son Brian in Columbia, sitting at a sidewalk cafe sipping an iced tea, or taking a walk somewhere with big shady trees.

Four TV shows/programs that I watch over and over: I'm not really a TV watcher, but I will turn it on if I'm in the family room at night. At this time of year, the Cardinals game is usually the default evening choice, but last week it went back and forth between Fox Sports and the Olympics. I enjoy anything on the Food Network, and HGTV if there's no one else at home to make fun of me.

Four things I have for breakfast: I'm so boring! Always fruit, coffee (with dry milk added because I don't like the way skim milk makes the coffee look), and some type of carb. Favorites are homemade muffins or bread when I have them, off-brand frosted shredded wheat (eaten dry, because they get too soggy in milk), waffles, french toast sticks, or pop tarts.

Four animals I like best: Cats have to head the list. I like dogs, but haven't had one since I was a kid. The "young" version of anything that's cute and fuzzy. Butterflies (I like to sit and watch them fly; I find it very relaxing.)

Four beaches I've been to: Lake of the Ozarks (the most recent), Coco Cay (a Royal Caribbean private island for cruise passengers), Tampa Bay, and Grand Cayman.

If I understand the rules of the game correctly, I'm now supposed to tag four other people (Sage, Collette, Jackie, and KC) to complete this activity. However, in the interest of full disclosure this is probably the first and last meme I'll ever complete, so if you pass I won't be offended at all.

Gregg, thanks for the easy activity for the day!


  1. Something else new you can say that you have done too! :)

  2. Glad I could help! It came at a good time for me, too.
