and we have been together since she was 7. Incredible how time flies-life lessons learned!
When we first met, she LOVED to hula hoop and could hoop me around the hula!
She was a CHAMPION at her school. I needed mo’ practice!
She’s not so much into hula hooping these days, but she smiles at the mention.
What wonderful gifts Meni has brought me. Over lunch, she shared her LIST of goals for summer: go to the beach, go to Hurricane Harbor at Six Flaggs Magic Mountain, learn to swim and finish the 10 books on her reading list, which she compiled in January.
There were 40 books on her list and she’s down to the last 10.
I just gave her 2 more and the rate she reads, she’ll be down to 8 by next week.
I recently read that school kids should read 5 books over the summer in order to keep their brains active and in shape. No worries for Meni. I love that she sets goals for herself, if you count going on a water ride at an amusement park a goal. I know I did at that age. Heck, I made a goal in junior high to acquire enough signatures on a petition to move General Hospital back to 3pm so I could watch it AFTER school. This was BEFORE VCR’s, well, before WE had a VCR. And guess what? Goal accomplished!
There was NO way I would miss Luke and Laura’s wedding. Mom did not understand my rationale that missing school to witness the event of a lifetime was paramount to my middle school years. So, I’m all for goal setting!
It was an inspiring group. 4 schools focusing on Special Education Teaching. Talk about dedication and passion. The energy was palpable and infectious. I’m extremely proud of my friend, Lindsay, who is one of the best teachers I know. Talk about achieving goals! Lindsay was the #1 instrumental/catalyst in me creating Mac-n-Mo’s as a business, so whenever I get overwhelmed or stressed out. Did I just admit Mo, the Morselist gets STRESSED?! :) I blame her, and I do it with respect and love!
Doug’s mom celebrated her 90th birthday and she’s perkier and sharper than most 40 year olds I know. A true testament to staying active and living life! All in all, a beautiful MORSELICIOUS weekend!
Now, your turn… I’d LOVE to hear from you..
