Meet Me On Monday

{I haven't joined in for sometime with "Meet Me On Monday." Thought it would be fun! Trying to get back into the swing of blogging on a regular schedule with a plan. That should be interesting with the crazy work schedule I have at the moment.}

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you  questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we  can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

Java will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them  better!!  Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!!


1.  Are you excited for the holidays or are you dreading them?

2.  Do you hit the snooze button or get right up?
3.  Do you still have your tonsils? 
4.  What was the last piece of candy that you ate?
5.  Do you shop at thrift stores?

1.    Are you excited for the holidays or are you dreading them?
       This is a tough question for me to answer. There was a time I would say I'm so excited I can hardly wait.  I'm not exactly dreading them either. Its I'm just not in the festive mood this year. Though once Thanksgiving comes and I pull out the decorations along with playing the Christmas music that will get me in the mood. Thanksgiving is getting harder and harder for me to get excited about. But...... I will give it the old college try. It isn't the same without all the family. It is just like another day to hubby and I when it is just he and I. But I will be hosting my friend John here for dinner other than that it will be very quiet. Christmas is my favorite holiday. Strange though I haven't done anything I usually have done for this time of year for Christmas. I am going to try and simplify it and make it more streamline this year.

2.     Do you hit the snooze button or get right up?

       I don't use an alarm; so no snooze button for me. I gave up alarm clocks long ago. I just got tried of having them go off in my ear. It seemed so barbaric to be woken up that way. So I starting praying and asked God to wake me at the time I needed to be up. I thought He would be the perfect alarm clock. So it is kinda hard to hit that snooze button. But... have been known to pull the covers over my head and ask can I please just have five more. It was the best thing I ever did for my body and head. Much rather be woken up by the Holy Spirit. So no snooze button. (And no I haven't ever been late as of yet!)

3.     Do you still have your Tonsils?

        Yes! I do.

4.     What was the last piece of candy you ate?

        Hersey's chocolate bar. Just last evening in fact. Left over from the trick or treat candy. Man those kids missed out. I had bought $25 worth of candy and only had 17 trick or treater's. Both hubby and I were a bit bummed!

5.     Do you shop at thrift stores?

       Use to be my favorite place to shop. I don't much any longer. I still go in once in a great while. You can find great finds if you have the time to weed through the stuff. I shopped there when the kids where little and bought my entire wardrobe at the thrift stores. Not any longer. Though I was in one the other day and saw some of the things I had donated. I almost purchased them back. lol  I have also found other great household goodies in them. It seems I'm more into down sizing and donating to them lately then shopping in them. I guess that happens.

Do you donate your things? Have yard sells? Or pass them on to those you know in need?

I use to donate stuff until Goodwill got to be a pain in the neck about leaving drop offs at certain places on their property. So, I don't do it anymore. That's really too bad, too. I am thinking about doing an online yard sale of sorts to unload some of my daughters' books. They are just collecting dust now that they are grown and moved out. Hopping from MMMM!
