Joining Joyce and Friends for Hodge Podge Wednesday:
1. What’s something you miss about the 1980’s? If you’re too young to miss the 80’s how about the 90’s?
I was a teenager and young adult of the 1980’s … Not much I miss about those days other than I miss aspects of my life during that time – the carefree days of dreaming about the future in an almost fairy tale like manner and having freedoms that come with not having the responsibilities of marriage and children … but I wouldn’t go back. I never had a perm that turned out like I wanted; I hated hot-rolling my hair every day to get it “big” enough!; I don’t look really good in neon or aqua or peach (the colors that seemed to be “in”); and my 1981 rust-orange Oldsmobile Omega was not something that impressed the boys!!
May in Missouri this year has been such a glorious month, weather-wise … I love not having to run the a/c during the day (though we’ve had a few days where we had to). I love the evenings when we take Miriam to the park to play or I sit on the front porch and enjoy the warm evening while the kids play in the yard. Today we got the hose out and it was perfect weather for splashing in it just a little bit without getting too cold.
That said, I’m so ready for JUNE because school will be out, and I am excited about what God has in store for my family!
