7. What, you gotta be kiddin’ me!

8 Things To Do Before I Die:

I don’t have a bucket list! I posted the opposite of a bucket list for Thursday Thirteen this past week. If I have to choose something, though…

1. Get all of my children’s photos scrapbooked
2. Provide beautiful weddings for our daughters
3. See my son get married some day
4. Become a biological grandmother
5. Take care of my mom for as long as God lets me keep her
6. Continue to make new friends
7. Have time to volunteer at school and church like I did the year I took off from teaching
8. Maybe get a second master’s degree. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately.

8 Things I Could Listen To Over and Over Again:

1. The Boys are Back in Town by Thin Lizzy- brings back fond memories. Love this song!

2. Love Train by the O'Jays - who can't help love this upbeat song?
3. Blinded by the Light by Mannfred Mann - brings back fond memories, has some unique segments, and it's funny to hear what everyone thinks they're saying and then go look up the actual lyrics.

4. God Blessed Texas by Little Texas - I live in Texas! My daughter marched in a parade to this song when she was 4 years old. And it's a happy tune!
5. Babies cooing
6. The sound of a fountain or waterfall flowing
7. My husband or children telling me they love me.
8. No, honey, don’t get up. I’ll do it.

8 Things That Attract Me To My Friends:

1. similar background
2. children of same or similar ages
3. similar values
4. ability to carry on a conversation
5. ability to listen
6. caring and nurturing
7. a shoulder to cry on, or mine for them to cry on
8. trustworthiness

8 Things I Learned In The Last Year:

1. College can be affordable, even for students without scholarships.
2. My husband is truly devoted to me.
3. My husband can also be a bit jealous at times.
4. Teaching and accountability aren’t getting any easier.
5. New scrapbooking techniques
6. Dealing with the county is a difficult process full of red tape just to get copies of documents
7. I really like our dog. He’s my husband’s and we’ve only been married (almost) 3 years. When the dog and I were alone for a week, he got sick, and I thought he was going to die. I really do like that dog.
8. I need to make more time for myself, to do things I enjoy, or I am going to burn out.
