Monday Meme

Please note that today is my first day of school.  I have classes Monday - Friday this semester, which I haven't had in the past.  One nice advantage is that my days will be shorter, especially Monday and Wednesday.  Friday is my long day.  I'll do my best to try and visit everyone at least once this week, but I can't promise anything.  This is going to be a very busy semester with lots of homework, so I'll be around Blogville when I can.

Got this from here.

1.  If you could play any musical instrument, what would it be and why?  If you already play an instrument, what do you play and why?  

Currently, the only instrument I play is the radio.  When I was a kid, I wanted to learn to play the piano.  I'm not really sure why.  I asked my mom for lessons and she said no.  I think it was more because we didn't have a piano and she didn't want to pay for lessons.  I still think it might be nice to know how to play, but I haven't taken any steps to learn on my own.

2.  When trick-or-treating as a kid, was there any kind of candy you didn't like to get?  

I rarely got candy as a little kid, so I wasn't too picky back then!  I didn't care for peanut butter flavored taffy though.  Everything else, I devoured as quickly as I could, lol.

3.  Why do you live where ever you live?  

As a kid, my family moved around a lot.  My father was in the military and it seemed like almost every year, I went to a new school.  It had it's advantages, but there were also the disadvantages.  When my dad retired, he and my mom moved back here because they liked it so much when we lived here previously.

My brothers and I don't really talk and I don't know my other family members (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) because they all live so far away.  I'm not married, so I've always stayed close to my parents.  Now that my dad has passed away, I'm staying because my mom is really all I have.  When she's gone, maybe I'll move on.  I won't have anything else to hold me here.

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
Apparently, it's a marsupial.  I thought it was a kangaroo at first, but after googling for a better look, I don't know what it is!  I'm pretty sure it's not a kangaroo though!  What do you think it is?

I moved around a lot as a kid, too. Changing schools was definitely tough! Hope you have a great semester!

The only instrument you play is the radio :) that really cracked me up!
Those are pretty wierd looking animals, like a cross between a kangaroo and a rabbit.

I never liked getting Good n'Plenty's candy for Halloween! I don't like black licorice!
