I'm it...Childhood Meme

This is from VW, at One Happy Dog Speaks. Who I enjoy reading. The little blondies are cute too, you must go over and take a look.

5 Things you miss from your childhood:

1)I miss, thinking all people are good and sweet. I also thought all adults were perfect, and never made mistakes. I am not sure when that ended, but it did not last long enough.

2) I miss playing in the snow and NEVER feeling cold, it didn't seem to bother me. We would spend hours outside building snow forts. Elaborate snow forts with hidden rooms. Sledding, for hours. I do not remember being cold. I will also add here, I never remember SUMMER HEAT bothering me , I could play ball outside all day, and never complain about the heat.

3) I miss "my imaginary workplace". I ran a library, a school, a clothing store, a zoo, a newspaper, and was I was even a television journalist. They were all such fun jobs.

4) I miss going on family vacations in the summer, we used to go to Minnesota every summer with another family. We would all rent a cabin, I remember one year there were about 20 of us in one cabin. I would get new coloring books, and fun pads, and crayons for the days it rained. We would stuff ourselves on fish, and make sand castles.

5) I miss "back to school". New clothes, new notebooks, new teachers, new classes. I loved school.

"I miss playing in the snow and NEVER feeling cold"

Ya know, I'd never thought about that, but now that you mention it, it didn't matter how long I was out there when I was a kid, the cold never bothered me.

Now I stop feeling my feet after 15 minutes :-/

My hubby and I every winter comment on how when we were little we could be out in the snow for hours and be sweating.

Now, I don't even go outside and I am cold. blech

And I was already tagged awhile ago, answered were posted.

I firmly believe that "back to school shopping" is responsible for the fact that I am now an addict.

I looooove shopping. Remember how awesome it was to make that trip to the store and get clothes, binders, etc? To this day I sniff the pages of paper in spiral binders.

Ummm, that had to sound totally weird...
