The Sunday Social: Week 2

Well...it's hard to believe it's Sunday again already.  That means we are about to start another week.  And it's the last week of August...can you believe that??  My friend posted a little picture that said we are about to enter the 'ber months lol  I thought that was cute.  Anyway.  I said that I wanted to stay consistent so I'm going to do the Sunday Social again from Ashley Lately's blog.  If you'd like to participate, go to her blog and copy the link for the picture, answer the questions on your blog and link your blog via the comments on her page.

Sunday Social
 
Today's questions are all about your childhood.
 
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
    The thing I miss most about being a kid is being carefree.  We didn't have responsibilities beyond doing our chores and doing the best we could in school.  My friends lived within walking distance and we could ride our bikes all around the neighborhood without feeling scared.  Oh to be a kid again.
 
 
 
2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
   I had lots of them and I'm not quite sure if I want to share them  lol  As long as no one that reads this dares to call me any of them...I guess I could share.  I was always Missy when I was a kid...I HATED it!  My dad called me (and still does and is the ONLY one allowed to) Matilda, Miss Tilly, Tillison, Thelmer, babydoll, etc.  I don't even know how all of those came about.  Around high school, I picked up Issa which wasn't horrible.  I still get called Mel every now and again and that just kind of bugs me.
 
3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
   Double dutch and the tire swings.  Otherwise, I just sat with my friends and we worked on the latest hand slap game thing lol  whatever those are called....you know...Miss Mary Mack. (mack mack)
 
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
   I wanted to be a teacher.  My friends and I always played school.  I had chalkboards and workbooks to play with.  I got a type writer for Christmas one year because I wanted one SO badly. My mom believed in educational toys and workbooks, etc so I'm sure that's why.  However....I am not a teacher.  Funny how that works right? 
 
5.  Did you participate in any school activities?
  In elementary school, I was in the girl scouts and 4h club.  I tried ballet, cheerleading, etc and those lasted about 2 minutes.  In high school, I was in French club, Future Business Leaders of America, Yearbook, National Honor Society, a candy striper at the Hospital and I'm sure a few others that I'm forgetting.
 
6.  What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
   I probably remember more funny things than my parents do  lol  One year, at Christmas, my brother and I wanted to scare my dad when he got home from work so we crawled behind the tree and were going to jump out from behind it.  Well...that didn't turn out the way we planned and the tree just about tumbled completely over.
 
That's all :)  I'd love to see your answers so make sure you link your blog in the comments if you filled out the questions as well.

Oh yeh...and I put 5 month progress pictures up on my progress page! Not a huge difference.... slowly but surely though :)  New goals this week.

  1. I was in 4-H too! And LOVED it and totally support it. I look forward to when my Little will be big enough to participate! And I totally forgot about NHS. :)

    I like the 'ber months comment - that is cute!

    Have a great week!
