Friday Fill-Ins - 1 July 2016

This is a fun meme co-hosted by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

Here are this week's statements with the blanks:

Week 8: July 1, 2016...

1. I never thought I would miss _______________________________, but I do.

2. Every 4th of July ______________________________________.

3. If I knew ______________, I would __________________.

4. I have trouble ___________________________.

My answers:

1.  I never thought I would miss the county where I grew up, but I do. The older I get, the more I wish I had never left. Over three hundred years of family history should have been strong enough to overcome whatever came our way. When the going got tough, so did I. I am such a wimp.

2.  Every 4th of July, I wish that I could capture a great fireworks photograph. One year, I did pretty well, I think, for a first-timer.

3.  If I knew how to do higher math, I would be an architect. It is something that I wanted to be when I grew up, but I got scared off by the math. I wouldn't want someone to die because I couldn't figure out how to find X or Y.

4.  I have trouble: Parallel parking. Climbing stairs. Remembering things. Dodging mosquitoes. The list is long and is getting longer as time goes by.

Word-High July: Kilig

Please visit here to learn more about this 30-day challenge.


Kilig is the Filipino word for "butterflies in one's stomach".

I have had this happen on many occasions, being so excited or nervous that my body didn't know what to do with the feelings, so that butterfly-fluttery tickle in the tummy took over. Sometimes that feeling is as overwhelming as what caused them in the first place. That has been the case for me quite a bit lately.

I had them each time I started a new school and the day that I graduated high school.

I had them on our first date, when David proposed to me, and the day that we got married.

I had them along with morning sickness each time a pregnancy was announced.

There have been so many changes and are so many potential changes to come that I don't know where or how to settle my heart and nerves, hence the constant tickle that isn't necessarily funny or fun.

Have you ever had butterflies in your stomach?
