I've had a crappola few weeks. Nasty weather. Illness. Nicholes illnesses. easy child giving birth. (high point but stressful) Missing classes and getting behind in everything. The lil difficult child inside of me wants to drop all my classes this quarter and say to heck with it! I won't. The grown up part of me that bosses the lil difficult child part of me around won't let me. lol Sooooooooooooooooooooo Since I'm putting off my philosophy term paper, I thought a fun post to perk everyone up might be helpful. We had a fun post a longish time back about things we remembered from our childhood. Let's see..... I can remember when candy bars were a dime, and penny candy actually cost a penny. And when double bubble sour apple gum was the rage of the Jr High....landed kids in detention on a reg basis. lol I can remember in grade school when jump rope and hopscotch and kick ball were all the playground equipment required to have fun. Because if you didn't do those things you usually played tag or Mother May I or London Bridges. How about when the girls would all lock arms with girls, boys with the boys and march around the playground chanting, " We hate ____" (insert appropriate sex) --- I dunno, was this just my grade school?? I remember running home from school to watch the "Dialing for Dollars" afternoon movie because The Flintstones came on when it was over. lol I remember pogo sticks. I tried it once, nearly broke my neck. lol I had a Mr Potato Head that required the use of a real potato....and his parts had metal spines on the ends. Somehow I never got hurt playing with it. Spirograph!! OMG that was fun!!! Until we got in trouble for using up all the notebooks left lying around. lol My Aunt Janet got my cousins Shrinky Dinks I think they were called?? You'd make these little rubber insects and such in the oven. They thought it was great.........PHEW!! The smell kept me wretching in the bathroom. I remember saving popcicle sticks to build things. I remember being amazed when I saw them sold in large bags in the craft dept as an adult. lol I remember rolling down hills in those huge metal drum type trash cans at the park. Tons of fun, more so because we weren't allowed. Ok. Yeah. With some of this stuff I'm starting to feel a bit "old". lol There is probably lots more........but my brain is beginning to shut down. So? What's yours?
