Thankfully, I grew up, realized my parents love me and wound up feeling terrible for the "bad years." I can't imagine having to deal with me back then. So here is my formal apology. Mama used to say, "I'm your mother, so I always love you, but sometimes I really don't like you." Hopefully now you can do both? :)
Thanks to Jessica over at SouthernYankee for tagging me in her blog today!
First, I have to open the closest book to page 56 and copy the fifth sentence on the page (and a couple of supporting sentences that follow.) The rules say it has to be the closest, not my favorite or most intellectual... Unfortunately, I'm at work, which means my closest book is Power Pioneers: AEC's First 50 Years (A history of the company I work for!) So here you go, be excited:
"A serious blow came when the cities of Troy and Luverne gave notice of their intention to terminate contracts with AEC as of June 1, 1965, and to thereafter take power from Alabama Power Company. Such notices were given without prior warning when APCo filed a contract with the city of Troy at the APSC on Aug. 4, 1964, and then filed a similar contract with Luverne on Oct. 5, 1964."
I won't make you suffer through any more. I apologize for not having something more interesting to share with you. I assure you, my bookshelves at home are lined with edge-of-your seat thrillers that have nothing to do with power contracts. I bet Jessica is wondering why on Earth she tagged me!
In the second part of her blog, she was tagged with another Kreativ Blogger award where she listed six things she valued, and six thing she didn't. I like that idea, so I'm going to follow suit:
Things I value:
- Honesty, no matter how harsh.
- Memories. I cherish the good times and try to learn from the bad. Our experiences shape who we are.
- Time with the people I love.
- Music. It can lift your spirit and speak to your heart. Whether your in a great mood or you've had a horrible day, there is a song that will speak to you.
Things I don't value:
- Immaturity (in adults; I understand it in kids :) I don't like to see 8 year olds act like grownups...they should enjoy childhood!)
