Tags and labels


Rita and Shannon have tagged me, so here we go.

I thought that mom's knew better than causing people this unnecessary work! I am really going to have to wrack my brain. And, I will try not to complain because I can't think of anything else to blog about today anyway.

My biggest beef now is that I have to tag seven of my friends(SORRY, but I do give you permission not to follow through - don't want to cause anyone undo stress)...I don't even think I have seven blogging friends. Let's see, I tag 1-Valerie, 2-Andy(who hasn't updated his blog in forever and so I am sure he is not going to read this), 3-Cally,4-Lori,5-Dorry,6-Meagan, and 7-Karie Wow, that's seven. If you aren't listed above, consider yourself lucky!

Here are the rules which must be posted on your blog if you are tagged.1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

So, I am not following the rules to the tee, but that brings me to my first point.

1-I believe that we should all live by rules, but my beef with rules is that I should make them, not just for me, but for everyone I know. I am definitely an authoritarian at heart, and it is something that I am always trying to work on. I am a parent who tries hard to be democratic, but I definitely error on the side of being authoritarian and I cannot STAND permissive parenting. It makes me totally crazy to see parents let their children run the show! This is also something I am trying to work on constantly (not being bothered by people's differences)

2-I am terrified of mice....absolutely terrified! - There is a good story about why, that will have to wait until another blog entry.

3-I am very strong. I often tease that I am as strong as a "weak man", which I recently learned was not true when I arm wrestled what seemed to be a very whimpy missionary. I think I used to be able to bench press about 100, which is impressive considering at the time I was only 140 pounds. I also have pretty good endurance, which is really impressive considering I haven't had a real work out in months. But, mental fortitude is a different story....not as mentally strong.

4-I hate the sound of sleeping bags rubbing together. The same for those work out pants that are the similar material....AHH, just thinking about it gives me the heeby jeebies.

5-I think I have almost perfect pitch. Which may be far fetched, but when I used to be the Primary Chorister, I would come in for the kids without the piano and always be right on the right pitch...this could be because of the repitition only though because if I am asked to just pull out a note to sing a song it seems I am always too high or low...so, I hate to admit it, but I probably don't have perfect pitch.

6-I love to drink a Neer Beer whenever I go to a ball game. All you Mormons can stone me later. ;)

7-I was labeled "Intense Energy" by my graduating Carlsbad High Class GO LANCERS! I guess there were worse things to be labeled. Isn't Travis Parker cute? Yep, he was my boyfriend for a short time. I just heard that he is finally getting married. If he is the Travis that I remember from 15 year ago, she is a lucky girl, but not as lucky as me of course...because I got married to LG and HE IS THE VERY BEST MAN IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! - and don't forget that my birthday is on Fri honey. ;)

What's up with the girl voted "Bodacious Booty" looks like she's been doing some serious stuffing of the bra there.

Yeah, that was the rumor...I never remembered them being that BIG. But, golly, no wonder she was voted Bodacious....I meant to say something about that in my original post...he he

Okay -- I guess I apologize for tagging you if I caused you too much stress -- but you did great and they were fun to read, so I don't really apologize completely! ;)

It's tradition for my hubby and my dad to drink near beer when they are together, which is about once a year! They love it and it's helped them bond. This family won't stone you.
