Monday Morning Meme – 2/9/09

It’s later Sunday evening as I sit down to prepare this. My little guy is his usual gregarious, active, loud self. Yet still that odd feeling, left over because of Monday, looms. 24 hours from now and it will be a week 😐 On to more interesting things.


1. How many coats do you own? Do have a good coat? Casual coat? Summer jacket? etc. Do you wear coats very often? Or do you have a tendency to leave your coat at home whenever you go out? What is your favorite coat? Why is this one your favorite? Care to model it for us?

I’d say about 4. I’ve got my winter coat, which I wear every time I leave the house in the winter. I’ve got a lighter jacket that I’ll sometimes wear in the spring and fall. My “coat” or “jacket” otherwise in the summer and spring is a sweatshirt with a zipper. Two actually. You don’t get a picture.

2. You’ve learned a thing or two about this thing we call blogging. Tell us one thing you don’t recommend to other bloggers. Tell us one thing you do recommend to other bloggers.

I recommend to other bloggers not to sit idly by.

Which leads to my thing I do recommend.

Advertise as much as you can—I like Entrecard myself. It’s not compatible to all blogging platforms—I can’t put it here until I can work with my CSS—but they can bring you lots of traffic, and the badges you put in the widgets are fun to play with (okay, I like it because I like playing with Paint Shop Pro, I’ll level with ya! :-D).

3. Is cursive writing a lost art? Should good penmanship be taught? Tell us about your handwriting – good / bad? Do you think your children have good handwriting (given their appropriate age, of course).

No, I don’t think cursive writing is totally a lost art. I think they should still teach penmanship….it’s a beautiful art. I like to think my handwriting is pretty nice, actually. When I was in high school I used to make myself feel better by practicing my autograph, namely my first name.

I think my daughter’s handwriting is nice. P of course can’t write yet.

4. Have you ever struggled with infertility? If you haven’t, or if it wasn’t the hardest thing you’ve ever had to go through — what was?

I’ve never actually struggled with infertility. I’ve struggled with the question—I didn’t know whether I’d be able to have P until I actually got pregnant with him. The hardest things I’ve had to deal with are health issues for others—the heck my mom has had to go through with her knee surgery and it’s complications, and of course last Monday. Also, I had to go through the ordeal when I lost my ex-best friend—it was over something with the kids…that was the last straw…it wasn’t easy, and I don’t trust other women that quickly or easily anymore.
