7 Things

Jen tagged me. I'm flattered--thanks Jen! As Jen said, "That means I have to tell 7 (true) things about myself, and then tag 7 friends so that they have to do the same."

1 ~ This is a little like the icebreaker at Women's Retreat where they simply told us to take as much toilet paper off of a roll as we wanted. Well, I thought about it and considered the possibility that we'd be somehow limited in toilet paper the whole weekend to the amount of toilet paper we were to take at this moment. So I decided more is better (which is hardly ever right. I don't know why my reasoning was so errant!) and took lots and lots of toilet paper. I should have considered that the ladies who lead the retreat are very nice and would never do such a thing to us. Some ladies took only one square, and as I saw them I smugly thought, "Well, they'll be sorry!" But alas, it was the other way around as Kristi B. announced that everybody should divide up into groups of three, and for every square of toilet paper you took, you had to tell something about yourself. Needless to say, it was very embarrassing when I had the most squares in the group and couldn't think of anything to say! Anyway, I've given myself a while to think since I was tagged, so I ought to be able to think of some things now.

2 ~ I have a tendency to "suck cold from the air" as mom puts it. I take off my socks and immediately, my feet are so cold they hurt. If I don't blow dry my hair in the morning, I'm irritated all day because I'm cold. As I said before, though, I don't get cranky just because I'm cold. For some reason, when I'm cold, everything hurts. Not sure why.

3 ~ I think I've blogged about this before, but I love "The Amazing Race." I want to be on The Amazing Race. Lately, I've also discovered the delightful "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" and "Kids By The Dozen." I want a huge family. I think this partially comes from my love of kids and partially from having been an only child for so long. One time, I visited a family of nine kids for the day. I got home and burst out with, "Mom, they're so cool. They have BUNK BEDS!" Mom was somewhat irritated, as they'd just gotten me a new double bed.

4 ~ I think I'm Mexican, Italian and Chinese. I love their food. Of course, I love American food too...

5 ~ I love the game "Settlers of Catan." This will be my first year of going to the Memorial Day campout with my very own Travel Edition. Did I mention I love camping too? Camping is cool. Last year, I was terrified of being cold at night, so I brought all my snow gear (including parka) and wore it inside my sleeping bag. Very classy.

6 ~ I don't really know why, but I always feel like spending money at Target. I love Target. They have the coolest stuff. I don't like shopping at other places, though--unless we're grocery shopping. Now that's a different story.

7 ~ I'm way too gullible. My manager messes with my mind all the time. It's not fair.

So now I tag: Leila, Barbara, Mo, Sean, Clyde, Stacia, Micah, Kim, Natalie and Jesse. What's that you're saying? Yes, I know the rule says seven, but I'm gonna tag ten. So there.

    I'm not sure if I have your e-mail address right, so maybe you could drop me a line when you have time. I would love to catch up with you and your wonderful family some time during and/or before the summer! I know my mom would love that, too!
    Why not tag eleven while you're at it? Or maybe I'll wait patiently to see if Nat or Kim will tag me. Actually, I wrote some embarrassing stories in my English journal last year - one in particular was hard to bring up, even to myself! Ha!
    I hope you're well and growing in Christ.

    Of course, you're tagged too! So good to get back in touch. I just sent you an email, at what I think is your address. Don't know if it's out of date. Anyway, hope it works! If not, let me know.
