Friendly Fill-Ins

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 the fill-ins:

1. The first thing I think about in the morning is _____________________.

2. The last thing I think about before sleep is ________________________.

3. I am looking forward to _____________________________________________.

4. I am so pleased _____________________________________________________.

Here are my responses:

Okay, so we’re doing the whole honesty thing here, right? The first thing I think about in the morning is getting to the bathroom!

The last thing I think about before sleep is pretty much the same as the first response. But, I also think about all the things I’d rather be doing than sleeping.

I am looking forward to finding the time to edit the photos from our visit to the zoo yesterday. Here are a few for starters.

I am so pleased that my eye surgery can be put off for a while longer. And, as I understand it, once I do go to have it done, I can get a pretty high-grade sedative. I won’t be asleep, but apparently the next best thing to being there. If they can get me beyond the Bo-Bo Zone, that will be great. Bo-Bo is a character who featured in a hallucination I had as a child under the influence of goofy gas at the dentist’s office.

  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I always enjoy your answers. I am glad you have a good eye Dr that helped to put your mind at ease and you can hold off for a while on the surgery.
    Nice photos, I look forward to more. Have a great weekend! I don't know how you can go all night without the bathroom, I get up at least 3 times a night.Have a nice weekend!

    1. Thanks for you and Annie hosting the fill-ins and for your nice comments. I enjoy the questions each week. :)

      I am very glad that I can hold off on the surgery for awhile, too. That gives more time for Heavenly Father to fix my eyes Himself. :)

      I love taking pictures at the zoo! The dappled sunlight and the shadows makes it difficult to get a good exposure, but it is still fun trying. :)

      Oh I don't go all night without going to the bathroom. I am there at least once at hour many nights. I wish that I could go all night without having to go. Then, maybe I wouldn't be so tired all the time. I have had bladder issues since I was a child. It is a "thing" in my family, kidney and bladder problems. Have you been checked for diabetes? The last time I was checked for it, I was okay. I hope that you are, too.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend!

  2. I got a laugh from your #1 because although I didn't think of it, that is actually a first-morning thought for me too. Your pictures look so nice from your zoo outing! I hope your eyes are healed and you won't need the surgery at all. However, all things are in His hands, and He is always good.

    Hope you have a nice weekend!

    1. Thank you, on all counts! I am glad that I made you laugh. It made me laugh when that was the first thing to pop into my mind for the answer. :)
      It was a fun outing. I took a lot of pictures in the tropical bird house, but most of those didn't turn out well. One, however, was messed up in such a way that I think it would make an interesting abstract picture.

      It would be great to not need surgery because He healed me. I agree; it is all in His hands. He created my eyes and He can heal them...or not. He's got it covered either way.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend!

  3. Hang in there, Suz. You may never need that surgery. Sometimes it never progresses. And, God is on your side. We have not been to a zoo in years, but were talking of going to one this year. We are halfway between Milwaukee and Chicago, so...there are two good ones. I got to see the Giant Pandas at the San Diego Zoo in 2008, when Bill was still "gainfully employed". That was pretty cool. Hugs!

    1. I'm hangin'. :) Thanks, Annie. That is what I am hoping for, to never need that surgery after all.

      I hope that you'll be able to visit the zoo and have a wonderful time there. I hear the zoo in San Diego is awesome!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend!

  4. Great answers! I can identify with the bathroom thing. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks! I think many of us are in the same boat on that one. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope that you have a blessed weekend, too.
