Friday Fill-Ins #94

Janet hosts Friday Fill-ins here. If you'd like to play along, come and check it out.



1. Follow the Son.

2. Reading material is something I always take with me on vacation.

3. To achieve your goals, you must work hard, sacrifice much, and love more.

4. That at age 45, I lived out my childhood dream of becoming a classroom teacher is something I'd like you to know about me. I began college after my children were grown and married. If I can do it....

5. I have a twin brother. He never reads my blog.

6. Ivory Soap floats. At least that's what they tell me.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to a relaxing evening, reading my book; tomorrow my plans include blogging, reading my book, church; and Sunday, I want to enjoy small group, blog, finish my book, and read some of the newspaper!

Congrats on # 4. My personal feeling is that we should always be reinventing ourselves. Happy Friday.

good Morning Sally
Work hard..sacrafice much and LOVE MORE. I really agree with that one and I think its the love of your partner, your children, your attitude, others, life...its that overall love that helps you pull through. Good for you!! That is very inspiring Sally.

Have a wonderful weekend. I hope its every bit what you want it to be. Enjoy your nice weather...yikes I had to scrape a bit of frost this morning and I could see my BREATH!

Good morning Sally. Liked your answers. Thanks for popping in .

Shelia said...

Morning Smiling One!! Oh, I didn't know you were a twin!! My son was a twin, but I miscarried one twin when I was 5 months.

Oh, silly one. Are you trying to tell me something about 'coo coos'?
lol
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

sara said...

Wow, congrats on #4. Have a great Friday!

Linda said...

How wonderful you were able to begin teaching in your mid 40's. Twins run in my family. My Mom was a twin.

Jules from "The Roost" said...

Love these fill-ins and getting to know more about you! :) Enjoy the weekend.

Susanne said...

Wow, I applaud you for going back to school and becoming a teacher after your kids were all grown. That is truly a feat! You should be very proud of yourself!

Ari_1965 said...

I think there is a tribe of people somewhere who worship Ivory Soap because of its magic floating properties.

~TAMY 3 Sides of Crazy~ said...

Great answers. #1 is perfect! Thanks for stopping by.

cmw said...

Thanks for stopping by -- I'm impressed with your going-back-to-college story.

Picket said...

Great answers...but I am total in awe that you finished college after your kids were grown...oh my word that is so inspiring! Have a great weekend sweetie!

Piggy said...

I love your answers! ..and congrats on #4. That's awesome and such a great accomplishment. Happy Friday!

Charli and me said...

Hi Sally,
I loved your answers and especially number one. I see we are planning on doing the same thing this evening LOL Have a wonderful weekend!

Needled Mom said...

Great fill-ins. Yes, Ivory soap does float. Do they still make it? We used to shave it and add it to the washing machine too.

Coloradolady said...

What a great weekend it sounds like is in store...very relaxing. I liked your #4....I wish I could do that....I just feel too old now. Have a great weekend.

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

Fun answers! I had no idea you had a twin brother! Why doesn't he read your blog? Or is he just not computer and Internet savvy like you?! :)

Have a great day!

Junebug said...

Thanks for stopping by my new blog!

I agree 100% with your #1!

And I also agree with #3

That's cool that you're a twin and you pursued teaching after you were older

Have a great weekend!

LarryG said...

No 3 is right on!

Also the Ivory Soap, I agree and like it, I especially remember it always being on the kitchen sink and the smell of it.

Awesome you became a teacher!

Danielle said...

You're #4 is a testament to your #3! All great things!! Have a wonderful reading weekend, I'll be doing the same thing!

Shannon H. said...

A twin brother? Too Cool!

Have a great weekend.

Stephie said...

I'm with you on #2, always have a book or two (and probably a magazine or three) with me when I travel (or goto the dr's office or anywhere else you're made to wait). Congratulations on achieving your dream! Inspiring. How many people can say that? (and mean it...)

marathon mom said...

Yay for everyone who isn't afraid to go back to school no matter how old they are and whether it's the first time or the 5th. They make good people!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ms. Val said...

Congratulations on #4!!!!! I went back to school part-time when my little one started first grade. He's now in fifth grade and I'm still going. It's a slow process.

becky68 said...

Congratulations on your #4. That is really impressive.
Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Sally, My grandmother was a twin and I am a twin..I had a twin brother who died at 6 hours old due to a heart problem.If we had been born in this age of time, his heart could have been fixed...I often wonder what he would have been like??? we were born 2 months early..I weighted 3 pounds and look at me now...thanks for sharing with us..
Hugs, Baba

Jerralea said...

jeanne said...

Sally, you are quite a gal in my book, college and becoming a teacher at 45. My aunt did that too, but she never went anywhere with it. I am proud of you Sally. How totally rewarding. I like all your answers, you go girl!

Hugs...Jeanne

Cathy said...

It's neat how you always manage to fill in the answers so well.

Rachel and Jacob said...

blogging is definitely on my weekend list tooooo :)

Cathy said...

What are we without our dreams? My mother went back to college when I turned sixteen. She became the technical services librarian for the Arizona State Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped and did a lot of work with the Library of Congress. She also used to say, "If I can do it...."

Whirled Peaces said...

Hi Sally,

Your posts are always so nice to read. You have such a mellow, hopeful tone to your writing. It's inspiring to read that you achieved your childhood dream. I am currently on the path to becoming a teacher (Secondary Ed English). I can't wait to get into the classroom!

Have a great weekend.

Barbara H. said...

What great answers!! I like 1 & 2 especially.

sally906 said...

I love that your twin respects your internet space :)

Kimber said...

Awesome answers! I love #4 and also love #5 but I might be biased as the mom of b/g twins. LOL Happy Friday!

T.Allen-Mercado said...

Sally, I think it is admirable that you lived your lifelong dream. I'm hoping one day to conquer this crippling depression and finish my PhD.

As for your brother, neither of my siblings read my blog either-Perhaps, they know it all already! :)

JO said...

a twin! never had friends who are twins yet...

TGIF! Enjoy your weekend!

Here's mine... thanks!!

Dawn said...

I thought I starting teacher late (in my early 30's). I feel like it will be forever before I retire.

take care,
Dawn

~ Mhay ~ said...

Wow, a twin? That would be nice if I also had one :) Happy weekend Sally :)

nikkicrumpet said...

Is it even possible to go on vacation without a book...dang my head would explode. And if my brothers ever read my blog I would die of shock! I had a hard time just getting my mom to read it! I laughed about your "autograph" comment...and no you can't but I'll let you look at the autographed picture of George Clooney I won hehehe Thanks for stopping by as always.

MommyWizdom said...

Nice answers... and that's neat that you have a twin brother.

peppylady said...

I been also told that Ivory soap floats and thanks for stopping by earlier.

Ms. Bar B: said...

Julie said...

I'm with you on the reading material! Happy weekend:)

Frances said...

Hi Thanks for visiting.
Grandma always bought Ivory & it really does float.
They fluff it up so it has little bubbles of air in it.
Have a great weekend.

Patty said...

How in the world can you be lonely with 53 (now, 54) comments?! It's so great you became a teacher at 45!

Laane said...

I'm so happy for you that you've been realising that dream.

I hope you really enjoy it.

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.

Have a great weekend!
