Like me, many of you have already been tagged by someone for the “8 Things about Me” meme. Well, wouldn’t you know that the Happy Haikuer decided to change the rules—just a tad, mind you—so…here I am responding to another meme.
The Rules for Cloudscome’s New Meme
Her new meme is called "4 New x 2.” You have to share four things that were new to you in the past four years. That is, four things you learned or experienced or explored for the first time in the past four years: new house, new school, new hobby, new spouse, new baby, whatever. Then you have to share four things you want to try new in the next four years.
My Four Things from the Past Four Years
I am now retired after thirty-six years working as a public school educator—first as an elementary classroom teacher and later as our school librarian. I loved my work…but I think retirement rocks! Oh, the freedom!!!
I’m new to blogging AND memes. I just began writing for Blue Rose Girls in October of 2006.
I attempted writing haiku and acrostic poems—in earnest.
I bought some things on ebay: snowflakes from the Robert’s Snow auctions.
My Four Things for the Future
I’m a pack rat. I have got to throw away all the stuff I’ve accumulated over the years that is stuffed into closets, and drawers, and bins in my basement. If I don’t, my husband may leave me for June Cleaver...or maybe even Monk!
I’d like to have one of my children’s poetry manuscripts accepted for publication.
I’ve never been to the Southwest. I want to vacation in New Mexico.
I’d like to get into a more aggressive exercise routine. At present, I try to go for a brisk thirty-minute walk three to five times a week. I want to be thin and have taut muscles again. Oh, Time, what thou hath wrought on my aging physique!
Note: I am tagging anyone who wants to respond to Cloudscome’s meme. Just let me know if you do take up the “4 New X 2” meme gauntlet.
