THE ABCs OF ME (this should be good reading material if you're hoping to get to sleep quickly!)
A. Attached or Single? Yes. For life. Funny, my kids asked me last night if I'd marry again if Daddy ever passed away. I got all teary eyed and told them "no". I've never had anyone love me like Shane does, and couldn't imagine ever being with any other man.
B. Best Friend? Yes. I'm married to him.
C. Cake or Pie? Wedding cake...you know, with the thick slabs o' icing on them. Yummy! My dream cake is made completely out of butter cream icing. Wonder if I'll ever get one? :) If I do, don't ask for a piece of it, 'cause I'm not sharing! ;)
D. Day of choice? Friday, 'cause my honey gets to be home all weekend!
E. Essential item? If you've SEEN my eyebrows since the retreat, you'll know without question. My essential item is eyebrow tweezers! I look like I could open a national forrest on my forehead right now!
F. Favorite color? Green. It soothes. It buys. It proves life. It looks good on my kids. :)
G. Gummy Bears or Worms? I wouldn't eat a gummy ANYTHING if it was the last offering before starving to death! Blech!
H. Hometown? Uuuuuh.....I dunno. I've moved around so much I can't quite answer that. Oh...I know! TEXAS! No, that's not a hometown...that's a whole 'nother country!
I. Favorite indulgence? Sleeping until I wake up....even if it's mid-day. Swimming in my backyard with my family. The new Queso Blanco block 'o processed cheese from Kroger, with Rotel peppers and salty tortilla chips. MMMMMMMMMM....not good for you, though!
I know that much!
J. January or July? January. My birthday is in January. It's perfect weather time in January in Phoenix. Life is fun in January. I come close to getting my buttercream icing cake in January. :)
K. Kids? Yes.
And we do have.
Kids..we're like silly little college kids around this house, Shane and I. That's the fun in being married to a super funny guy who holds all his super-funny in and saves it up just so he can pour it out on ME when he comes home. His "Sprokets Dance" is the best kept secret in town. :)
L. Life isn't complete without? Inductive Bible Study. Did you really think you'd get anything else out of me? :)
M. Marriage Date? May .....oh, I always forget the exact date...you'll need to ask Shane.
N. Number of brothers and sisters? One older brother. An older sister in heaven. A sister-n-law whom I love and cherish. She counts as a sister in my book. :)
O. Oranges or Apples? Under compulsion...apples.
P. Phobias? Oranges.
Q. Quotes? "Act well your part, for there all honor lies." WS
R. Reasons to smile? Currently, it's listening as my sweet little 5 year old girl is audibly reasoning through her relationship with Jesus Christ and God the Father. It's the sweetest thing to listen to, and to watch, as all the pieces are falling into place in her little mind. I think God is getting her prepared for the gift of mercy. She has such a tender heart for the things of the Lord. Tonight she prayed for the North Koreans who need Jesus, and for the people in East Berlin who need the Lord. (Can you tell that we're reading "Brother Andrew" right now?) Talk about being top of mind!
S. Season of choice? Summer. I love to swim with my kiddos and my hubby!
T. Tag 5 people. Uhhhhh.....I gotta get back to you on that one!
U. Unknown fact about me? I got to spend 20 minutes one-on-one with Lynn Redgrave after a performance that she gave at the Alley Theatre in Houston, TX in the early 1990s. As an aspiring actress, it didn't get any better than time with her!
She was so gracious and kind, and I'll never forget her taking that time for me.
I was on a first date, and the guy set this up for me as a surprise. Man...it was great!
V. Vegetable? Asparagus. MMM, I love it!
W. Worst Habit? Pushing myself until I break. Gotta learn to factor in some rest times. It's just that my time here is short, and there's a lot of work to be done. This drives my husband a bit nuts-o, I'm afraid. I need to rest.
X. X-ray or ultrasound? Is this the best they came up with for X?
I'm gonna change it. Those options stink.
How 'bout this: Xanthippe? No, thank you very much. She was a shrew!
Y. Your favorite food? Anything served with guacamole', spinach queso blanco, and tortillas. :)
Z. Zodiac sign? Oooooh! You hit my hot button, and here right at the end of a fun survey! There are few things I could care less about than this. A few weeks ago, someone asked me when my childrens' birthdays were, and after I told her (unknowing to what was coming) she launched right into their "sign" garbage. They looked at her like she was speaking Latin. (oh wait, even a dead language makes much more sense!)
I'm so glad that I don't base my life on creation anymore...but on the Creator.
OK...way more than you ever wanted to know about me. I gotta go REST!
