Eight is Great!

Helen and Sherri have posted this little get to know you exercise in eights, so I'm playing along...

8 Things I Did Yesterday:
1. Went for a run after not running for more than a week.
2. Watched too much Myth Busters. Did I really need to know how slippery banana peels are? Ok, I did.
3. Took pictures of the kids playing outside.
4. Made BBQ pork chops.
5. Started reading a book I've already read but forgot the plot to.
6. Got ready to go to the store and realized my wallet was in the van with Frank.
7. Changed many a diaper.
8. Ate popsicles on the porch.

8 Shows I Watch (I submit that preschool TV does not count.):
1. House
2. What Not to Wear
3. Biggest Loser
4. My Boys
5. Jeopardy
6. Antiques Road Show
7. Local News
8. The Office

8 Things I Wish I Could Do:
1. Move the right side of my face.
2. Travel more.
3. Fly.
4. Wave a magic wand to clean the house.
5. Play guitar better without having to practice.
6. Spend more time with extended family.
7. Whistle.
8. Beat Frank at a video game.

8 Things I am Looking Forward To:
1. Going on my Emmaus Walk.
2. All my kids being potty trained.
3. Going swimming this summer.

5. Seeing Jesus when I die.
6. Eating the chocolate I bought at the store today.

I must have missed that episode of Mythbusters. How slippery is a banana?

Beth, I wish you could move the right side of your face too. It will get better.
BBQ pork chops sound delicious. I look forward to swimming at the park pool too. I don't know how I missed that.

Okay. I'm out of ideas. I'll do this tomorrow. (I know - you're giddy with anticipation.)

Thanks for the link of love.

I'm glad someone else enjoys "What not to Wear". I thought I was alone.

I laughed when I saw that one of the things you were anticipating was the kids all getting out of diapers! I REMEMBER feeling the very same way!
It's the little things, you know?

I love these things.

Beth nice to meet you. You haven't written in a few days I see; life get's us busy so I know the feelin'. Love to hear more about what you write.

And I enjoy reading your profile 'About Me' with following Christ and learning to lean on Him. That is always a great place to start! :D

If you had a followers list I would sign in to it, but since you don't I'll just make sure to try to remember you and keep up from time to time to see how you're doing on that regards.

Cute baby you have there! I miss those years; as mine are now so 'old', 3 and 5. Blessings to you!
