Another Monday Fever...

I'm back! Did anyone notice I was gone?! ;)

Anyway...after a traumatic experience at work and battling some crazy personal issues, Mariposa is back!

I would like to extend my apologies to The Writing Game people for the delay of my story, especially to Jen and Luisa. I will post my story tonight.

I have to drag myself to the PC today...I need to post something, and I have to do it now...or never!

I will have my second Monday fever today...

MANIC MONDAY today is BLUE.

Though I am a follower of pink, BLUE occupies an important place of my heart. Yes, it does! I love nature...and I love earth tones...so by definition...I love BLUE!

So for MANIC MONDAY...

I present to you...

My only BLUE swim suit!




And this is my blue butterfly necklace...




And this is how I paint my week BLUE!



YES, I painted my nails blue.

Other people painting the town blue are HERE.

And who can't resist FUN MONDAY, eh? Well, we're to have our BUCKET LIST! Yup, you read it, THAT list! List of things we want to do before we die...and it has to be at least five items!

Honestly, I wasn't sure at first if I wanted to do this...but the moment I went to Lisa's Chaos...I just have to do this, for FUN and maybe it will take away my migraine...and hopefully...it's will help my Tylenol in making me feel better.

Not in any order of importance, these are the things I want to do before I do my final exit~

* Post my story at The Writing Game. (Not that it will take that long, ok? Just in case this headache caused my life an hour from now...yes, it's that horrible!)
* Climb Mt. Fuji again...with Yummy this time!
* Watch Spring Blossom Festival in Japan with Yummy!
* Do paragliding!
* Get married.
* Have a nice honeymoon!
* Have children.
* Play with my children in the garden. (This is tricky, because my garden means, having it in my dream house...so that includes the dream house in the list...and well, it complicates from there...LOL)
* See my children finish college.
* See my children get married and have children!

Quite a list, right? Well...I'm having FUN MONDAY! Just like the rest - other Fun Monday players.

And finally...the las of my Monday Fever, but definitely not the least...MUSIC MONDAY!

Here is Regine's version of Aerosmith's I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing...this is how I feel every time I'm swamped with a lot of things...I wish I have more than 24 hours a day to do ALL the things I want to do.

Hope you like this version...I want it sang from a woman's perspective...as this song means a lot to me. This brings me back old days...good and not so good...good things that are no longer here...yet, as what Mom always said...don't be sad that they're over but be happy that they happened. So this song, helps me celebrate, in joy and pain all the good things I have had...and I miss.

For Manic Monday : If you prefer pink, just add a little white and red to blue and you will have it, lol !

Your list is nice, I couldn't do any because I have already one foot in my grave, lol !

I made two posts of these memes otherwise I get mixed up with the comments and would write : your blue list is nice ...

I missed you .Made a note to myself to ask where are you .And here you are.
Your blog fonts are tiny , makes me grab my reading glasses.

Mariposa said...

Gattina, thanks!

Grey - nobody ever told me about my font...thanks for the feedback! I will make some adjustments...lol

I had purple mascara in high school. I just LOVED it. You wear whatever you want.

I have a hard enough time keeping up with one meme. I'm amazed you can manage three.

You did manage to get a lot of groups into one posting. Congratulations, particularly on the blue fingernails.

Lil Mouse said...

Welcome back, Mariposa! Is that you in the blue bathing suit? Gorgeous!! Happy MM!

I can remember being able to wear a bikini and look great. Oh that was so many years ago. Great take on blue. Love the nails too. Have a great MM. :)

The color blue is significantly better than the blues. We get it - your woman done you wrong. Move on with it.

Glad you're back. It's late here and I'm trying to get a few comments in.

Bucket list, eh? LOL

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Welcome back! And I used to have almost the same nail polish years ago... I loved wearing it!

I also love that Aerosmith song. And when you have a moment to catch your breath I'm so excited to read your Writing Game post!

Sandy said...

I loved your list but it is funny how one thing, like kids in a garden, leads to other things, like dream homes.

Terrific job.

Simply,Jenn said...

Great list. I hope your headache goes away.

Sandy C. said...

Aww...I hope all drama and trauma's have settled down for you. Love the bathing suit and nails! I'm not brave enough to go blue on my fingers...but they're cute on you :)
Happy Monday!

The Flying Monkeys said...
