Okay, my day didn't go quite as planned but that's what ice cream is for. (And if you understand that remark, then you deserve some ice cream as well.)
Jonathan finally woke up and told me about Video Games Live. He seemed to really enjoy the whole thing. They apparently had a Guitar Hero contest before the concert and the winner got to perform with the orchestra. Guitar Hero is one of the video games that Jonathan did not own but oddly enough, his father found one at a yard sale today for 15.00. So I'm guessing he is preparing for next year! (and after watching this clip, I might be "game" for going too!)
Now, about six weeks ago (I'm blushing!), Lori tagged me for a meme. Since she's gone to visit her inlaws in Jordan for the next month, this probably isn't a very timely time to be doing this. Because she won't know that I finally followed up with her tag. Sorry, Lori! Anyway, you all know the rules. And I won't be tagging anyone afterwards because I think everybody in the free world has already done this one except me. (If you haven't, feel free to jump right in!) But, here goes:
What I was doing 10 years ago: Probably pretty much what I am doing now. Laundry, ironing, raising babies, working, trying to be a better wife and mother...still living in the same house, working in the same job.
Five Snacks I Enjoy: Just five? Okay, Outback Cheese Fries. (You knew that would be one, didn't you?), Carmel Praline ice cream, tortilla chips with a hint of lime, grapes, and homemade butterscotch pudding. Because I believe in getting all the calories one can in my snack.
Things I would do if I were a billionaire: I always thought if I had more money than sense, I would buy these abandoned stores and turn them back into parks and forests. Because I like green. I would probably also buy a villa in Tuscany, take lots of trips and dream of world peace.
Five jobs that I have had: I put decals on t-shirts, sold cheese, worked as a book-keeper at a car dealership, worked as a secretary for a lawyer and a sheet metal company, and work currently at LifeWay.
Three of my habits: I read. Everywhere. All the time. I always have to lay down on my right side first when I go to bed. Always. Did I mention that I read? Ummm...I come home for lunch everyday.
Five place I have lived: I'm not sure I've lived in five cities. Let's see. Cincinnati, Louisville, Bowling Green, the San Joaquin Valley in California, and Louisville.
Five People I Want to Get to Know Better: This is where I am supposed to Tag people. I'd rather not. I want to get to know all of you better. So, if you want to play, please do so.
This has got to be the longest post on the face of the earth. But, I'm not done yet!
Over the past couple of weeks, I have received three internet awards. (and I'm blushing again. This is one of those times that I wish I could see me the way you apparently do.)
I received two Arte Y Pico awards, one from Annette and one from Amy.
I also received a brilliante weblog award from the roost. So, here's the deal. I am supposed to choose blogs that deserve to be recognized. The thing is, there are about 40 blogs on my feed that I read regularly. There are also another ten or so that I try to keep up with weekly. And yes, I spend a lot of time reading blogs. (However, if you read my meme, you'd see that one of my habits is that I read all the time.) So, I am going to share my choices with you. Each of these girls deserve to be recognized for their writing. They all touch my heart in so many ways. They are the sisters that I've always longed for and my mother never gave me!
Without further ado....
Annette, Annette, Amy, Ang, Angie, Brenda, Bev, Anna, Cheryl,
Tammy, Jessi, Jessica, Beth, Mary Jane, Connie, Heather, Michelle, Mindy, Katie, Julie, Beth, Lori, Amanda, Sumi, Helen and 'Nise. Each one of these blogs is award worthy in it's own right. You will be blessed by each one! (and if you visit all of them, you will learn something else about me. I have very eclectic reading tastes.)
Now I'm off to the hot tub. This blogging stuff is hard work! Ya'll have a blessed evening and an even better Sabbath! You mean so much to me!
