OK, Cindy! I finally got to your meme. We're doing homeschool in Dallas this week... as good as we can. We'll be home next week after the gas stations are re-stocked!

"Getting to Know Me"

Things I want to do before I die:
1. Take walks with my grandchildren and tell them stories.
2. Get caught up with my scrapbooking (6 years behind and counting).
3. Learn to speak at least four more languages.
4. Find peace in a ministry God calls me to – whatever that may be… Feel like I’ve been useful to Him.
5. Go to India and meet my sponsored child.
6. Be the wind beneath my husband’s wings.
7. Watch my children amaze me with the wonderful god-centered adults they grow up to become.

Things I can do:
1. Enjoy art, create art, and take pictures.
2. Laugh and Love.
3. Pray Continually.
4. Feel Compassion.
5. Pinch my kid’s hineys.
6. Drive all over Texas.
7. Get out of debt.

Things I cannot do:
1. Fit in last year’s jeans without serious pain.
2. Tan.
3. Stay angry with someone I love.
4. Deny my faith in Jesus.
5. Say the pledge of allegiance without the mention of God.
6. Believe that my kids are about to turn 7 and 9.
7. Imagine a marriage in which a man and woman are not best friends.

Things that attract me to my husband:
1. His island blue-green eyes.
2. His laugh, his embrace, and his Greek-god-good-looks.
3. His heart for others, and how he loves his children.
4. His integrity and work ethic.
5. The fearless way he stands by his beliefs – even in the face of ridicule.
6. The fact that he gives himself wholly to something – all or nothing.
7. That he brings me breakfast tacos even if I don’t ask for them when he’s out Saturday morning.

Celebrity crushes I’ve had in the past:
1. Kirk Cameron (when I was 13 or so)
2. Val Kilmer (when I was 15 or so)
3. Patrick Stewart (when I was 18 or so)
4. David Duchovny (when I was in my early 20’s)
5. My famous, gorgeous husband (OK, maybe he’s not famous to you… but he is to me… from when I was 19 years old to “until men are fairy-tales in books written by rabbits”)

People I want to do this next:
1. Shana
2. Jan
3. Rhonda
4. Grizzly
5. Daddypundit

Okay, Sprittibee. I'm not that computer savvy. What does "tag your it" mean I'm supposed to do? And, what's your post idea?
Also, I'm amazed that you're feeling even an ounce of guilt over not doing school during your evacuation week. Like...if that's not a good reason to take a break, I don't know what is.
And, your kids probably learned lots about living life, which may be the best part of the education we're trying to give them.

Hi there, Jan. Tag means you are supposed to copy the questions on this post and post your own answers on your blog. When you do, just be sure to link to my post here. To write a link to my post in blogger, you simply type:

{a href=""}Heather's Blog{/a}

Only, instead of {}, please put <>.
Got it? :) If you have any questions... feel free to ask.

As for the taking time off for the hurricane, I guess I would have felt less guilty if the hurricane had have been worse for the area I evacuated, but things are completely normal now, aside from massive gas shortage... and per the governor's suggestions, I could actually go home today. I'll be staying up here because I have plans to head even further North this weekend... so, no reason to go back to the Gulf Coast area and then turn around and go back! I'm mainly staying this week to save gas money... and yet, spending my gas money on hotels. Pttth... can't win for loosing!

Jan said...

Okay...the deed's done. Hope I did it correctly?! If not, please tell me so I'll be a little more 'hip' next time. Hah!

I got your message Sprittibee and I will answer your questions tomorrow night. My sister will be in the air again early a.m. and then when I get the kids down to bed I will have my blog time.

I would also say don't feel too guilty about the schooling right now. Living life and learning to deal with these little curve balls with grace is a huge part of their education.

Take care - Monica.

Thanks for tagging me!

Heather, I'm like Jan - not really computer-savvy. I asked someone else this, but have not as yet received an answer: what does the symbol :) mean? And, by the way, thanks for telling how to do a link. I've wanted to list my sister's blog on mine as a Link, but didn't know how. I'll try your suggestion.


Sprittibee said...

Jan, you did great. Enjoyed your answers.

Grizz - I'll check your site soon to see if you post them... Thanks for the encouragement.

Daddypundit - Thanks for posting... it was nice to see a man's answers (besides all the golf stuff, of course!) :)

Patti - If you turn your head sideways and touch your cheek to your left shoulder, you should be able to see that symbol smile at you! :) It's a text grin! Hope the code works for you!
