Queenie said...

Think your meme was great, my answers would have been pretty much the same, except I can't skate and I like to make snowballs with egg nog. Pleased to hear your taking it steady at this hectic time of year (still not smoking)?

Cindy said...

My answers would be a lot like yours too. Enjoy your holidays, but don't over do it! You still need your rest...

That doll house could have been worth a fortune these days! Wow. Anyway, great stuff! I love when you do these little lists. I haven't put up my Christmas decorations this year cause I just got settled into a new apartment. What a bad time to move, you know?

Anyway, I'm hoping that you're feeling better and in the best of spirits. Just checking up on you and saying HELLO!!!!! :D

God bless!

You changed your blog so much for Christmas I had to take a double take to be sure I knew where I was, haha.......I came through the back door. :):)

Anyway........meme's are hard for me to do, because I like it all, and would do it all, and usually sit for an hour trying to decide on the perfect answer. hah.....so i just prefer to read others meme's

So how are you doing? Not ready to climb any tall mountains yet, I bet. A day at a time, right. How long has it been now since the surgery. I know Tom didn't feel very good for about two months, and he actually healed pretty fast. I have known people six months later that still didn't feel like driving a car.....everyone is different.

Best wishes for the Holiday Catch, hugs........

I like this meme. I liked eating and being with family too, we don't do it anymore.

I actually like giving. While I like receiving, I usually like it when I someone actually gives me exactly what I asked for, something I have mentioned, not just a general gift and nothing that I mentioned numerous times.

But I really, really like giving and surprising people with a gift I know they really want. That's fun.

I wish I had all my toys from when I was little. Man I had some good stuff.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
