Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Sparkling Beach Meme, Part 1

1. Ever been given or received an engagement ring? Yesterday I just received my recently deceased mother's engagement/wedding ring set. I don't know what I'm going to do with them. My older sister is being so hideous that I'm considering having our mother's rings appraised and then just hand them to my sister … provided that she just leave me alone about the money, the money, the money. It's wearying. She was my mother, not an investment.
2. Longest relationship? Too long. He wasn't a very nice man.
3. Last gift you received? Flowers from my oldest friend. They made me so happy!

4. Ever dropped a mobile phone? No.
5. When's the last time you worked out? August. I'm not happy about this. I think I would feel better and sleep better if I could get back to the health club.
6. Thing(s) you spend a lot of money on? Streisand and Springsteen tickets. Bruce was just after Labor Day. Babs is in October.
7. Last food you ate? Post Great Grains

8. First thing you notice about the opposite sex? Hair.
9. One favorite song? Ba-de-ya!

11. High school attended: Yes. I hated it.
12. Cell phone provider: Working Assets
13. Favorite shop: The Body Shop
14. Longest job: I have been with this agency since 2004!
15. Do you own a smart phone? Why? No. My little phone works just fine for now.
16. Do you prank call people? No.
17. Last wedding you attended? My friend Barb's.

18. First friend you'd call if you won the lottery: My oldest friend.

19. Last time you saw your best friend(s) Christmas 2011.

  1. Perhaps you'd like to hold on to your mother's rings and give them to your niece when it's time for her to get married?

    i'm so sorry you're still having problems with your sister. People can be so hateful and hurtful when they are both sad and offended [and in some cases already just a bitch... though i don't know in the case of your sister specifically ;)]

  3. We have just gotten five guys in Canada, I have not made it there yet, but perhaps I should make a better effort.

    Happy Sunday!

  4. I've got that song stuck in my head! I'm glad it's a good song to have on mental repeat.

  5. I'm so sorry about your mother. Mourning takes people in different ways. Hopefully you and your sister can come to a mutual healing.

  6. Not that I need to butt in, but, hold on to those rings. Trust me on this. I've survived 2 estates.

    Have a great rest of your weekend.
