Making up for lost time

I've been tagged again, but how could I resist the tag of someone who honored me on her own blog?

Favorite food: Tacos, chocolate cake. Pretty much all carbs.

Quirks: I hate being late, hate it. And the Lord "blessed" me with a family that does not share my passion.

How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less? Creative, happy, can do anything she sets her mind to.

Any regrets in life? Yes, but I'm not sure I would like to talk about it. Too personal.

Favorite Charity/Cause: I only donate to the LDS church, I know my money is going 100% to the right place, every single time. I'm sure there are other great ones out there, I just haven't the time to research them out and decide which ones are good and honest.

Favorite Blog recently? Hmmm. I like the blogs where I get regular entries. I hate waiting for weeks in between. Anyone who posts more than once a week!

Something you can't get enough of: Decent books and time to read them.

Worst job you’ve ever had: I worked at McD's for 1 whole hour. That was pretty lame. I realized a guy from school who teased me relentlessly worked there, I had another job offer at Orange Julius, so I took the OJ job and left McD's in the dust. I never did collect my paycheck!

What job would you pay NOT to have? Anything smelly, I have a sensitive nose.

If you could be a fly on the wall, where? This is going to sound weird, but right now I would be a fly on the wall of the big room in heaven where the Lord sits and talks about his children. I would want to know that everything is going to work out all right for my children.

Favorite Bible verse right now? Anything to do with rejoicing.

Guilty Pleasure: Desserts. It used to be People magazine, but when a recent edition had what I would consider soft-porn inside I have sworn off of it forever.

Got any confessions? Sometimes I don't feel as mentally strong as I like other people to think I am.

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? Bras, shoes, clothes. A really cool date night with H.

Favorite thing about your house? We still have it. With the financial crud that we have dealt with, I'm just glad to have one.

Least favorite thing about your house? I wish the basement was finished.

One thing you are bad at? I'm with Erin, keeping my opinion to myself. I judge too quickly, and make my opinions known.

One thing you’re good at? I love to write, whether I'm good is another story.

If you could change something about your circumstances, what? I wouldn't have to work.

Who would you like to meet someday? In the next life, of course: President and Sister Hinckley, Joseph Smith, Audrey Hepburn.

What makes you feel sexy? Painted fingers, toes, and a clothes that fit great.

Who is your real life hero? My parents, for raising six children and still having some sanity left.

When are you most relaxed? "At night after the kids are in bed and I can have a few minutes to myself. " (A direct quote from Erin, that I must 100% agree with.)

What stresses you out? All the clothes that need to be folded in my room, a never-ending supply!

What can you not live without? My shampoo, soap, my husband and my kids. All the rest is superfluous. Except food.

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? I haven't read the article, but I am a bit of a narcissist when it comes to my blog. I want others to read it, comment on it, and give me lots of heart-felt compliments. I have a pretty unending need to receive the praise of others. Pathetic.

The variety of lists you've made on your blog from time to time really intrigue me. You are an interesting person. I was bummed that we didn't get to see on the 4th. I understand, though, that things come up. As far as your only donating to the church - - let me tell you again to look into Kiva. It would be a great experience for your kids. Ask Abbie and Dane how there donation (our Christmas present to them) is coming along. So cool.

Interesting. I learned a few new things about you today. And I'm with you.....I can't stand being late. That's one of my little quirks as well. I've never been late once in 14 years of work. People think I'm odd....

I'm with you on if you could be a fly on the wall. I think I would like to know without doubt that my boys were going to be ok. That would certainly make my life a lot easier right now.
