I'm Bad At Tag!

A while back I was "tagged" by a good bloggy buddy of mine. (Thanks Rachel, I love bloggy love! )Well I am terrible at tag folks. I am slow and clumsy. So I am finally getting around to my post! I love Q&A posts! They are great! Enjoy!

1. if you have pets, do you see them as merely animals, or are they members of your family?

Right now, we don’t have any pets. We had two cats, Sadie and Jezebel, before Lula Mae was born but we had to find other homes for them because she was having allergy issues with them. I miss them *sigh*

2. if you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?

To sing the National Anthem at the World Series. I think there are a few people out there saying “you won’t even sing in front of people at church or sing karaoke, but you want to sing at the freaking World Series????” and to those certain people…. back off! Second to that my other dream come true would be to live at Disney World. Yep. The more I think about this the more I realize I have A LOT of dreams….. and moving on….

3. what is the one thing most hated by you?

Okay so I have thought of several things…. then I deleted them because I realize I am guilty of them as well. How terrible is that? So I feel like I should just leave this one alone so as not to be a contradiction.

4. what would you do with a billion dollars?

First off, how much is a billion? Let’s break it down really quick…

I found this on google:

· 1 billion is 1 thousand millions.

· A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.

· If you count one number a second without stopping until you reach a billion. That task would take you 31 years, 259 days, 1 hours, 46 minutes, and 40 seconds.

So a billion is… basically A LOT. To start I would give half of it to St. Jude’s research because I have a heart for children with cancer. Then I would give half of what was left then to my church. Then I would pay off all our debt and all our family’s debt. I would take a KILLER Disney vacation too (because hey, it’s me!) With whatever was left I would give to Eric and Heather to help them take care of their huge family that I can’t wait to see!

5. what helps to pull you out of a bad mood?

Coke. My hubster. Coke. Reading my Bible and Devotional. Coke. Talking to Heather. Coke. Donuts. Coke. Playing games. Coke. My sweet kids. Oh, and Coke. Not sure I mentioned Coke.

6. which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?

Loving someone. I mean, it is great to be loved, but I would much rather love someone. Jesus loves me and that’s all I need!

7. what is your bedtime routine?

Well I guess it differs. Sometimes Charlie gets to the computer before me I share the computer with Charlie. He gets his internet fix while I read my Bible and devotional. Then I get on and check all my stuff (facebook, email, blog, bank account). Then we talk and watch some TV. Our biggest part of our routine is watching That 70’s Show at 11:00. It’s our dirty little obsession. Then at 12:00 we finally turn off the TV and drift off to sleep. Or toss and turn. Whichever strikes us!

8. if you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your partner?

Theater brought us together actually. My drama teacher was his former drama teacher. She mentioned to our cast that she had a former student who was over in Iraq that she wanted us to add to our chat and talk to while he was there. That was back when Yahoo messenger and all those things were the thing. So I added him to my Yahoo and started talking to him. We were totally just friends, considering he was 6 years older than me and he was married. Then Charlie came home on his 2 week leave. He came and watched our rehearsal. At that point during his leave he had gotten some pretty rough news. I won’t go into that because it isn’t my business to share, but let’s just say he asked me to go on a date ;-) So I did. We had a great time. Then he went back overseas for the rest of his deployment. We talked and talked while he was away. Then when he came back we started dating. We have been together ever since! That was in 2003.

9. if you could watch a creative person in the act of the creative process, who would it be?

I am a Theater lover. I did theater in school and almost majored in it actually. I loved competitions so much. There is nothing better than watching someone who is truly talented on stage. Breathtaking.

10. what kinds of books do you read?

I have just recently gotten into reading. I hated reading growing up. Hated it! Now I enjoy reading things about growing spiritually stronger. I enjoy books on Christian parenting as well. I am not really into reading “stories”. I like real life, practical literature.

11. how would you see yourself in ten years time?

I see myself more in love with my husband than the day I married him with a house full of kids. I see myself out of debt (we have a 6 year plan, other than our house). I see myself in the middle of homeschooling and loving every single second of it! I see myself giving more and serving more. I see a lot in the future and it fills my heart!

Charlie …. did you pass out with the “house full of kids” part…… are you okay? Breathe! It will all be okay, I promise!

12. what’s your fear?

You don’t have enough time for this one, trust me. There is a shorter list of what I'm not afraid of. Let me just sum it up and say I’m afraid of death. Horrible thing for a believer to say, I know. While meeting with my pastor I learned that all my fears boil down to being afraid of death. It is something I am working on. If I had to pick one thing I was most afraid of I would say flying. No, perhaps water. I could go on and on about this question so let’s just stop here, shall we.

13. would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to visit outer space?

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I’m sorry, is that a serious question? NO WAY!!! I once thought I wanted to be an astronaut though, after watching Apollo 13, and then I realized I would have to fly…. and that idea when out the window. So you can have your outer space… just give me a bag of Doritos and a Coke and be on your way space man!

14. would you rather be single and rich or married, but poor?

No brainer. Married and poor.

15. what’s the first thing you do when you wake up?

Sounds corny, but I pray. Not kidding. Every single day. Then I get up and fix Jayce a bottle.

16. if you could change one thing about your spouse/partner what would it be?

He is wonderfully made just like he is! I think he is wonderful! Although I would change the fact that he doesn’t know how much I love him!

17. if you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be?

What’s wrong with Amy? Well just for fun, I guess I would say Georgina.

18. would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?

I should, considering some of the things I have been forgiven for. I am saying yes, but until it happens I don’t know. I can only pray that if that situation arises I will pour out grace the way God does.

19. if you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?

Well, if I could survive on Coke… I would! If it has to be a solid food I would say chocolate.... anything chocolate! I am such a fat kid!

And there you have it! A few random things that you could have lived the rest of your life without knowing! Get ready, because it is your turn! I am only going to tag.......

LaVonne at Long Wait For Isabella

Heather said...

You are definitely on my list of things that make me feel better ;)

And how did I forget coke???

Can't wait for the day we both have houses full of children that will play together!!! (and both our husbands just passed out...)

Emi Brade said...

Too cute! I remember helping you when you sent that care package to Charlie way-back-when, amazing what life has in store for us sometimes!

Rachel said...

YAY! Thanks for playing along!

I always love hearing how people met. Isn't it funny how the smallest things end up being part of God's big plan?

I mean, I'm guessing that even you and Heather wouldn't have been buddies like this if you hadn't started chatting with a certain military guy! :)

How fun - thanks for playing tag!

Rachel said...

Oh! And National Anthem? I think someone owes her bloggy friends a video post! :)
