from La Vid Dulce. I had nothing else to say today, so why not!!
In your entire life, have you ever...
gone on a blind date? No
skipped school? yes, but it was college. Does that really count?
been to Canada? yes
been to Mexico? Yes
been to Florida? yes
been on a plane? Yes
been lost? yes! On a dirt road. In rural Oklahoma. And a guy chased me down because a rock my car had kicked up had broken his windshield. When I realized that he wasn't trying to tell me my car had a flat or something, I told him to eat my dust (or something like that). Then I cried. I was only 18, so give me a break!!
been on the opposite side of the country? yes
gone to Washington, DC? Yes, as a kid.
swam in the ocean? Yes, but I don't like it at all. I don't really like swimming anyways.
lettered in a high school sport? I honestly can't remember. How sad. I am sure I did though because I played varsity tennis for 4 years and varsity basketball for two at least.
cried yourself to sleep? I don't think so.
played cops and robbers? no, but when I was a kid my "gang" of neighborhood kids saw a robbery going down in the woods behind our neighborhood.
played dolls? Yes, but only with stuffed animals. I dressed them and loved them and named them and spanked them.
recently colored with crayons? Yes. Amazingly therapeutic. Try it some time.
sang Karaoke? in the privacy of my own home, thank you very much!
laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose? I can't remember beverage actually coming out, but on the first date with D, I specifically remember something funny being said or happening about every time I took a drink of Dr. Pepper around the campfire by the lake that night.
caught a snowflake on your tongue? it is a hard thing to avoid when it is coming down as hard as it does up here.
danced in the rain? Another date with my D when we were engaged. What a sweet memory!
written a letter to Santa Claus? No. Why would I write to him? I knew very well where the "goods" came from. (:
been kissed under the mistletoe? yes!
watched the sunrise with someone you care about? Yes, but it has been awhile. I need that to happen again soon. Cheap date idea coming on.
been arrested? Never
gone ice-skating? Yes, but I really, really stink at it. I always wanted to make it to the Olympics. Another dream dashed!!
been skinny dipping outdoors? No. I did lay out naked though when I spent a semester in Europe. I didn't want tan lines!! So I opened the wooden shutters to my room on the 3rd floor and laid on the floor in the patch of sun for awhile. I am so wild!!
had a nickname? Trala. It has been awhile. I liked to sing when I was little.
been to Africa? no
eaten cookies for dinner? undoubtedly. I just can't remember a time specifically.

stolen any traffic signs? no
been in a car accident? a couple, none when I was driving though, thank you very much

How do you see yourself in 10 years? My youngest, J, will be graduating from highschool, C will be graduating from college, M will likely already be in the work force and D 3 will possibly still be in graduate school if he gets to do what he wants to do. I could very well have several grandkids by then. D and I would be free to travel around the country on our Harley Davidsons and do seminars on how to raise perfect children into fantastic adults (cause that hasn't already been done by someone yet). He will have written his first series of books and I will pose with him for the picture on the back covers as any dutiful trophy wife would do. Or maybe we will be full time missionaries travelling to various countries encouraging other missionaries. Or maybe I will have gone back to school and will be doing...only God knows what at this point. Or maybe we will still be here. What an adventure this life is!!!
