Another fun TAG...

thank goodness it is not as exhausting as real tag -- I am totally out of shape. Thanks Stacie -- this will be fun.

I am: totally sick today -- yucky stomach flu
I think: I need a vacation. Hey, as a matter of fact, I am going down to the valley to see Tia next weekend (yeah).
I know: I would not make it without the Lord.
I want: to live until I am really old and gray and have lots of grand babies.
I have: some pretty awesome kids.
I dislike: tomatoes -- YUCK!!!
I miss: being in Michigan and my dear friends that live there.
I fear: that I will ruin my kids -- I hope that I am teaching them right
I feel: lonely -- it's hard to move so far away.
I hear: quiet -- my kids are just winding down to read scriptures and then go to bed.
I smell: new furniture smell -- I am sitting at Ian's new desk that was delivered yesterday.
I crave: anything chocolate and unconditional love.
I cry: when I'm overwhelmed and overtired (I stole this one from Stacie).
I usually: late -- it's a terrible habit that I am trying to break.
I search: the scriptures -- esp. when I am planning my Sunday school lessons (yippee -- I am 12-13 year-old Sunday School teacher).
I wonder: if I am doing enough.
I regret: not going on a mission.
I love: my family, sunshine, lazy summer days, laughter, girls nights out and singing.
I care: about all the children that do not have a safe home to live in and wish I could do more than just donating a little money each month to Mothers Without Boarders.
I always: get to bed too late.
I worry: about my children.
I am not: very organized -- I have great plans but just lack follow through.
I remember: when I thought marriage would solve all my problems (yeah, right!).
I believe: in the power of redemption.
I dance: with my kids in the kitchen -- I love twirling them round and round.
I sing: and love it. Wish I wasn't so afraid to sing solos.
I don't always: spend enough time with my kids.
I argue: when someone is being mean.
I write: thank you notes and NEVER mail them.
I win: if I try really hard -- I must say that against other adults, I am very competitive.
I lose: on purpose when I play with my kids.
I wish: Hunter had an easier time with school.
I listen: to my kids chatter and love to hear the funny things they are saying.
I don't understand: why people can be intentionally mean.
I can usually be found: working on the computer now but in the past I could aways be found at TARGET.
I am scared: of my kids getting hurt and being alone in the dark.
I need: to start working out -- I feel like a lazy bum.
I forget: so many things these days -- I think I need to get more sleep.
I am happy: when I'm hanging with my kids, family and friends just doing nothing but enjoying each other.

I tag...

Hey. I'm missing you! I've been thinking about you constantly for the last few days - how are you doing?

You're such an awesome person. It was great getting to read about you. Funny how you used to always be found at Target -- do you remember me bumping into you in the boys dept?
