Monday Minute

I'm really, really trying to get back to blogging regularly. And since it seems that I will be working in my office more often now, hopefully that means I'll have more time to goof off and get some blogging done!

And now for Christy's Monday Minute:

1. Have you ever been hospitalized?

Only when I broke my pelvis. Damn rollerblades!

2. What was the last bit of good news you received?

Good news? I am hoping for some good news today. I have a doctor appointment and hopefully my doctor will tell me I am not pregnant and there is nothing wrong with my uterus.

3. Who was your favorite teacher?

Mrs. Grady was my 2nd grade teacher. She was the nicest little old lady and let me sit by my best friend, even though we talked all the time.

4. Do you sing in the shower?

Not really, but I do let out moans of plessure. I love the way the really, really hot water feels after a long day.

5. Describe the happiest day of your life.

I have been blessed with thousands of happy days in my life and picking one would be impossible. Of course my wedding day made me so happy, but Leland and I have happy days together all the time. So I'll tell you about Saturday, which was a very happy day for me.

Being a Polish girl, every year my mom and sisters spend a day making pierogies for the holidays and stock pile the freezer. On Saturday Leland and I went to my mom's house and spent the day making pierogies with my mom and two sisters. We all did a lot of talking and laughing. We drank 2 boxes of wine. We ate a ton of pierogies but have several dozen in the freezer waiting for the holidays. It was the first pierogi day that we have had in years without any fighting or bickering among the sisters. We were all happy, we were all having a good time, we were all enjoying each others company.

Aah, homemade pierogies!!!
I grew up in a town where everyone's name ended in a vowel, you were either Italian or Polish. (I'm Italian American) But my friends who were polish taught me about real pierogies and not the stuff that comes in a box in the freezer section.
Shit, now I'm hungry.

That sounds like a great day! Happy Monday(I should be shot for saying happy and Monday in the same sentence).

Mommy Lisa said...

I love that - having fun with family, cooking, drinking! Yeah for good times.

MiMi said...

Shit! You still haven't started. Okay, girl, if you ARE pregnant it will be OKAY!!! Swear!!! :) Now you have to let me know as soon as you find out because I'm nervous for you.

Cristy said...

Thanks for linking up!! I hope you get the good news you want to hear. ; ) But, if it makes you feel any better, my pregnancy was quite unplanned for us, but NOW we couldn't be happier that she's in our life.

Babies are ALWAYS good news, even if you're not planning for them. I wish for you whatever you wish for you.

I'm supposed to go perogy making next weekend. WOOHOO!

Fingers crossed that the Dr's appointment will turn out the way you want it to.

Hope you hear the news you want to hear from the doctor's office!

I love the feel of hot steamy water on sore, exercise abused muscles. I'm hoping I don't moan outloud though.

Homemade pierogies.. drool... drool... all the better when everyone got along while making 'em!!

*Hugs* (just 'cause)

Hearing about your Saturday made me smile! :) I'd like to try pierogies sometime, by the way.

strugglingwriter said...

Homemade pierogies are the stuff!

Sounds like an awesome day.

McVal said...

That sounds so nice! Two for me, one for the freezer...

I hope your dr's appt. goes well. Please keep us posted.

I LOVE pierogies. I used to live in western PA where there was a large Polish population and I miss the food.

RN Mama said...

I've never had a pierogie before, but you definitely had me at "boxed wine!"

LC said...

What a great Saturday! Family day's in the kitchen are such an awesome time... and I love me some perogies... and two boxes of wine sounds dangerous but in a good way.

Good luck on the getting yourself back into blogging thing... I'm trying to do the same thing, so I am here to cheer you on!

Kim said...

I'm so glad you're getting back into blogging! I've missed you! And hurray for spending a day with your Mom and sisters without any fights! That definitely makes for a good day! I hope your Dr gave you good news!

Pierogie Day sounds like fun!

carma said...

From the sounds of it - all is well with you and Leland - yay!! been thinking about you - hope the doctor's apt. goes similarly well for you.

We love pierogies - but I cheat and buy the Mrs. T frozen ones :D
