Tuesday Wednesday Trivia

Okay Mat's 86: in an attempt to pickup traffic on our blog, I am stealing a fun idea from a former Matador. Courtney Gregg (class of '88) hosts "Tuesday Trivia" every week on her Facebook page. The questions are random, and gives you an opportunity to share a little about yourself and/or take a trip down memory lane.

Posting a comment on this blog is easy. If you have a gmail account, use your gmail log-in to post your comment. If you do not have a gmail account, log-on to and create one. It's easy! I'm willing to bet even Randy Hrechko and Kevin Beevers can do it!!

So here's our first Tuesday Trivia question: (and yes I got this one from Courtney) (and yes - I'm aware it's Wednesday, but I'm eager to get started)!!

If a theme song were to play everytime you walk into a room, what song would play and why?

First person to answer gets a free beer at our next reunion in 2011....compliments of Mary Glenewinkel. GO.....

P.S. Has anyone checked out Twitter?

Wow! A 25K....

Wow! I am so impressed and proud of our Lavonne! A 25K! I honestly have never figured out the metrics thing, but I know that is a long way - much longer than the 3 miles or so I can eak out on the treadmill before refueling with icecream and Dr. Pepper.

Congratulations, Lavonne!

What is on your "life list" to complete?

Here's to summer!

Where has the time gone....

Where has the time gone? I see it passing everyday in the faces of my children - somehow they have grown from babies to little people with opinions and voices and wills of their own. I see it in my own face, when I see a photo of myself and recognize my mother or sister. I see it in some of the things I say, things I thought I would never say - when I hear my parents' words coming out of my voice.
Tonight my husband said, "You realize, when Amanda (our oldest) goes to college, Lauren (our youngest) will be Amanda's age now." He said it with a mixture of despair and wonder - as in, will we ever be free of soccer games and birthday parties.
And my immediate reply was, "Thank God." As tired as we get of the running and sleepless nights, I believe that all too soon, we will ask, "Where has the time gone?" and that the only answer we will hear is the memories of these days and a longing for this time.
