BYOC Friday

Well, I am shopping in my shed today, It's amazing how many sizes I grew through and didn't acknowledge the problem... Well, I'm back in some. Not New, but it feels that way. I have all the clothes I need for my Niagara trip this week. I am feeling pretty good today... up on my high-horse, waiting to be knocked off by someone... But bruised and battered, I know now that I can get back up and jump right back on my horse... I am invinceable! Even if I can't spell. Now for this week's BYOC..... 1)If your heart had a singing voice, whose would it be? I used to hear Bette Midler singing my life's songs in my head but recently Train's Pat Monahan who sings my theme song Hey, Soul Sister... has been singing my life's melody instead. There he is.... now. 2)What is your most disgusting habit? I have a couple of gross habits... I chew popcorn in the movie theater and spit it out to avoid the carbs and calories... I sometimes bite my nails... which is why I almost always wear acrylic nails. 3)What is my biggest fear about going to Chicago? I never travel without my husband...ever, I struggle to get around more than most, so not being able to walk with you all.... and being without my wheelchair to fall back on... my biggest fear. I've never been to Chicago so I would like to go but I'm not ready yet, maybe next year. I'm sure I'll be missing a wonderful time. 4)Name one thing you will do for just one day next week in the name of health and commit to it on your blog and to us... This is a tough one for me since I am travelling next week, I know I will be walking more than usual and not doing my exercising unless there's a gym at the hotel, I also will not be as strict with my eating since It is my birthday week and I will let myself have a little cake, so I will promise that Friday, June 25th... I will do all my own walking(no wheelchair) for the day, I am actually going to try to do this most of the week but it depends how bad my knees and back are acting up. I will not be physically challenged much longer... 5)Who blog or comment stuck with you most this week and why? I am always moved by all your blogs but I think that I was most moved by Drazil telling us to listen to that song... Hero in Me by Jeffrey Gaines...speaking of singing my heart's song and Carmen's fear of not fitting in to the group... I was liked by many groups in high school too and I haven't felt like I was a part of any of them until this "band" of bloggers came along... I can understand why it would be so painful to think that I may not feel at home with them either.


  1. This band of bloggers is glad to have you as a part of us! Have fun on your trip. Stay safe!!

  2. Have a wonderful trip and a lovely Birthday x

  3. Just wanted to say hello! I was banded a couple of days after you, am just going to read your blog.

  4. Found ya!
    Toronto was great. Of course you can't beat downtown and unfortunately you need to avoid due to the G8! They were prepping for it when we were there. YOu definitely need to go to Naiagra Falls and Niagra on the Lake...very cool!
    Eaton Centre was Massive...
    The greek district on Danforth was awesome!
