Monday Minute...for an adorable lil Monkey.

Ian over at The Daily Dose of Reality Has Monday Minute and this is my first time participating. This weeks edition is for Monkey! 

Ian is setting something up and will tell us about it Wednesday on his blog so make sure and check it out.


Look at that sweet precious face...she's only 16 months old.
She has neuroblastoma.
So make sure and check back Wednesday at Ian's blog to see if there's anyway you can help.

On to Monday Minute....

1 - How old do you act?
I think I pretty much act my ago...although I'm 43 and feel about 38 most days...on bad ones you pick BUT when I'm around kids I'm into whatever they are doing. I love racing with them...and cheating.
2 - As far back as you can remember, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a teacher...I volunteered for a few years and it's hard work. I don't want to be one any more and have mucho respect for the men and women who do teach!
3 - If you were to write a book based on your life, what would the title be?
Me and Mine

4 - What's something that you do that's considered "childish" by most?
Hmmm I really ...really am mature. I do make faces at my nieces and nephews...ok at my dad too. I'm normally not too whiney but I have been feeling HORRIBLE for 2 days and probably have been a bit.
5 - The last question isn't a question.  Write a story of a time of when you or someone you know overcame great adversity.
Mines been posted before but I have a friend who almost 1.5 years ago within 2 weeks went from working 16 hour days as an RN to walking with a walker. She went to countless doctors and became a human sponge she had so many test ran. I'm surprised she doesn't glow. It took over a year for her to FINALLY get diagnosed. She was diagnosed with MD and has begin taking shots for the MD. She has went from walker to cane and has recently even started driving again. She should be going back to work soon. 
Keep the FAITH

43? Yeah right. I don't believe it - and how'd you come up with your blog name? Maybe I ought to ask that next week.

I know the answer to Ian's question(about your blog name). I never knew you wanted to be a teacher. Love learning new things about my "childish" friends, LOL

Wow, that is amazing about your friend. What exactly is MD? I feel dumb asking but I'd rather know...

You don't look a day over 35, honestly!
