Crazy Eights

Amanda tagged me back and this looked like fun....

Eight things I'm passionate about:

*God Enough said

*my husband I know, I know there are some of you who wonder if Rob and I really love each other because we bicker so much. But, beyond that, we are best friends. I crave time with him and don't get as much as I want.

*my kids It's easy for me to get bogged down in the "day to day" with the kids (especially lately---summer has recently gotten harder again) but I am constantly worrying and pondering what I can do better as a mother and I often get wrapped up in whatever they are currently interested in.

*photography I love taking pictures and playing around with different photo processing programs.

*do-it-yourself I am constantly seeing things and thinking, "I could make/do that......" This has created lots of half done projects around my house. (I'm passionate in my intentions and ideas, but not so much in the execution).

*good friends/family I am a very dependent person and "need" good friends and family. I've been lucky to be blessed with many good friends. Some of my good friends have seen me through some pretty crappy times and I don't know what I would have done without them.

*gadgets I love technology and can't wait to get the newest gadgets. I not smart enough to always know why they work, but I love it that they do!

*television/Tivo I hate add this to this list, but TV has provided me with some pretty necessary "calgon" moments. And if it weren't for my dear friend, Tivo, I would never, ever get to watch TV anyway. This way, I can watch it when it is convenient for me and I'm not a slave to the TV.

Eight things I would like to do before I die:
(a lot of things that could be on this list, I am too chicken to even think about)

*get a tattoo This seems to be a common theme....... must be our age or something
*drink Dom Perignon or Cristal
*see my kids become Christians, get married, have children---grow
*have both Rob and I on regular working schedules
*be able to retire and enjoy time with Rob
*go to Europe----anywhere
*go to New York
*be skinny

Eight things I say a lot:

*How old are you?
*Wh0 made this mess?
*Go to bed/go to sleep
*I don't know
*It's up to you
*What's up?
*I stayed up too late

Eight books I have read recently (or in the process of reading):

The Memory Keeper's Daughter
Lipstick Jungle
Velvet Elvis
Blue Like Jazz
No Other Gods

(I can't think of any others...... not a big book reader lately)

Eight movies I have seen eight times:
(I'm not big on watching movies over and over..... they just have to happen to be on TV or something)

Steel Magnolias
Dirty Dancing
Lion King 1 1/2 (Tate was in the hospital once and I counted at least 10)
Wizard of Oz
It's a Wonderful Life
Silence of the Lambs

Andrea A
Gary or Lynetta
(could only come up with 7)

Cheater, cheater! I know you didn't READ Blue Like Jazz or Velvet Elvis. I don't audiobooks should count!

We should all get together and have a big tattoo party. Maybe even pierce something.

Amanda said...

Meant to say "I don't think audiobooks should count."

The Anderson said...

I almost put a disclaimer about audiobooks. I knew Amanda would call me out...... Big Mouth!!!! It's the only way I can read and multitask.... I can't do one thing at a time.


The Anderson said...

BTW.... we should just all get the same tattoo..... I get to pick.


Andrea Spears said...

Just a word of advice on the tattoo... get it somewhere that no one can see if unless you want them to! HA HA! Because I have found that as you get older they tend to droop, wrinkle, and not look quite like they did when you got it. I could have sworn mine is supposed to be a tropical fish....
