Fridays stuff

I can hardly believe its Friday already – AND the end of September. October starts on Monday!!!!!

I am terribly excited though – next week is a short work week for me, as I start my last time of holidays on Thursday. Hubby and I are off to Jasper for my oldest nieces wedding next weekend. I keep fairly close tabs on my three nieces via Facebook. (Yes – I joined those ranks, but I don’t quite understand the addiction to it.) The benefit of this has been that I’ve been able to see pictures from their adventures, and in particularly recently pictures from the variety of Bachelorette parties that have been thrown for my girl Les.

I look at the pictures and think how young they all look, how much fun they’re having, and ‘darn’ but why can’t I be doing those things. A specific example is that a group of friends, and Les’ twin sisters took Les to the ski jump hill in Calgary. I can’t think of the name of it. When there is no snow, they convert the dramatic drop to a zip-line that seemingly lasts for miles. How much fun would that be??? I’m mean seriously – I would be screaming the entire time, but loving it!! I’m jealous; it looks way to cool for words. And to do it with a group of friends!!!!

This is when I realize that I’m not that young anymore. I don’t do cool fun stuff like this now. I am very close to my nieces, and I’d like to think that I could do stuff like this along side them, but then I realize that I’d probably stick out like a sore thumb. I would be the ‘older person’ that’s amongst them. I look at them and don’t immediately see the age difference, but the fact is that they would look at me and think along the lines of their parents – old.

Ah, cruel cruel world!

In the mean time – I’ve got me some workin’ to do! So today, I will leave you with my Friday Feast.

Appetizer
How are you today?
I’m tired, and extremely grateful that it’s Friday. But most of all – I’m doing great!

Soup
Name 3 television shows you watch on a regular basis.
New Season brings all new shows. I would be lost without a TV because it really is down time for me. The three shows I don’t like to miss are: Ugly Betty, Survivor: China, and CSI: Las Vegas. Which, coincidentally all premiered last night. I was in TV heaven.

Salad
What’s the scariest weather situation you’ve experienced?
Weather situation on land - I can’t think of one. But once while taking a catamaran ferry between Seattle and Victoria we hit some high winds and high waves, causing some extreme rocking and rolling. This was a little unnerving to say the least. I was not thrilled at the prospect of taking a swim in the ocean in the middle of January. I kept reassuring myself that catamarans are not prone to flipping, especially ones as large as we were in.

Main Course
If you could wake up tomorrow morning in another country, where would you want to be?
Disneyland!

Dessert
What do you usually wear to sleep?
Whatever will keep me the coolest (I’m a little furnace), short of naked. I don’t do naked; I find it makes me feel very insecure and vulnerable, which only leads to a bad sleep. It’s not worth it. I long for the days when I wore flannel, all wrapped up comfy and cozy. Now, I’m perimenopausal. Nuf’ said!
