10 Things

I'm taking Becky up on her request to post about 10 things you may not know about me. So, here goes:

1. I have a fear of reading in front of people. If I'm asked to read a long scripture in Bible class, I will usually try to pass it on to Sammy. My throat literally closes up & there is nothing I can do about it. I HATE this about me!

2. I also have a fear of cats. I try to stay away from them if at all possible.

3. I don't like donuts. They're too sweet for my taste.

4. I decided on my daughter's name when I was in junior high. It was either 6th or 7th grade, because I remember where I was sitting in the school, but I just can't remember which of those grades I was in.

5. I lied to Sammy the first time I met him to get him to talk to me. (He was so shy & I had to think of something to engage him in a conversation.)

6. I would love to participate on The Amazing Race! I love all the fun, adventurous challenges they get to participate in all around the world!

7. I don't particularly like the beach. Tracking sand in my car & in all my clothes drives me crazy. Plus, I don't like the feeling of not knowing what my feet & legs are touching under the water. And, seaweed... ewwww!!!

8. I work better under pressure. I almost never start a project early. I always wait until the very last minute, then push myself hard to finish on time.

9. I like mowing my lawn. It's my "escape" from the real world. I can put on my headphones, turn the music up as loud as I want & the kids are not allowed to get near the mower, which means I can finally be ALL ALONE!!! :)

10. I would love to be a surrogate mother. I enjoy being pregnant & love the anticipation of giving birth. But, after 2 high risk pregnancies & after 2 c-sections, I don't think I'll ever be able to do it again.

Okay, just two more that I thought of:

11. I used to sing alto in a ladies' group at our church in Kingsville. We were called The Sweet Harmonies. We sang at weddings, funerals, holiday celebrations for our town & other special events in the area. I even sang solo parts!! (I swear... it's true!)

12. I don't enjoy scrapbooking. I would love to have a scrapbook of my kiddos, but I don't want to do it myself. It requires too much creativity!

I also have a fear of cats. I absolutely panic when they are around. Not sure why? I don't mind kittens. And I absolutely love the beach. To me it is the best place to just sit and visualize God's grace as it washes in and out. So the next thing, I will expect to see you volunteer for the praise team :)

Well, we may agree on Bertolli Pasta Dinners, but I'm sorry to say that I love cats and the beach. Oh, well!
