Is there anything more exciting than being tagged?  It’s my second time, I believe.  I feel like a real boy blogger, pardon the Pinocchio moment.  Jamie over at Ohbecareful! tagged me to complete a “six” meme (I still don’t know what that word means…am I the only one?), thankfully giving me a way to quickly throw a post up.  (Is that cheating?)

Things around our house have been a little hectic lately.  Hubby, being in both Greek and Hebrew Exegesis this semester, is pulling his hair out over the technicalities of those two dead languages.  My family is coming to visit next week from the Great State of Minnesota, so cleaning and continuing my “homemaking” has been a priority.  And if that wasn’t enough, stay tuned on news of me going back to school!  Pens, and notebooks, and folders!  Oh my!

Now, as far as this meme goes, Jamie “took” all my answers, so go read hers for what would be my serious one.  In an effort to be original, I’ll give honest, if not first-choice, answers.  (Is that cheating?)

Six Things I Value

  • Floss
  • Smooth roads (how I miss them!)
  • New, empty, expectant journals (I’m only slightly obsessed)
  • School supplies
  • Scripture verse memory flashcards

Six Things I Don’t Support

  • Temperatures in the high-90s in mid-October in SoCal (high temperatures in Autumn bear repeating…plus I’m suffering more than Jamie, heh)
  • Traffic (two words: Los Angeles.  It can be 1:00 in the morning and if there’s an accident, you know you’ll be in stop-and-go.)
  • Too much to do
  • Thick smog
  • Temperatures in the high-90s in–oh, did I mention this one already?  (I know this is cheating!)

As a side note, you know you’re a (going-to-be) pastor’s wife when you alliterate a list.

Six People I Tag

I only wish there were six people who read this blog…  I suppose if you stumble across this (and weren’t already tagged by Jamie), please feel free to join in on the fray!


Encouraged (rebuked?) by Minnesota Mom to get back online, I have completed the following meme (what the heck does that word mean anyway?).  Thanks for the jump-start, Huey.

The Rules:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.

4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

5. I thought it only appropriate for this meme to have five rules.

What were you doing 5 years ago?

– It was the year I got my drivers license (I got mine a year later than usual), I was a junior in high school going to college, and I believe I got my first job at Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop.  Sadly, that’s all I can remember of five years ago.  I mean, I can’t remember what I had for dinner last night…

What are five things to do on your to do list for the day?

1.) Tackle more of the house-cleaning and -organizing.

2.) Take care of hubby who’s coming down with something.

3.) Make dinner.

4.) Read 1 Kings 4 and 5, Psalm 119:17-24, Luke 1:39-56, and Ephesians 2:1-10.

What are five snacks you enjoy?

1.) Apple crisp (my after-lunch snack today!).

What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?

1.) Travel to Sweden.

2.) Support ministries that mean a lot to me (DesiringGod, Grace to You, Truth for Life, etc.).

4.) Plan for the future in saving.

5.) Buy sidewalk chalk.  Lots of sidewalk chalk.

What are five of your bad habits?

1.) Squandering my time.

2.) Proofreading as I read–anything.

3.) Worse than impulse buying, when I shop, I fill my cart with everything I would like to buy, then account for how much I can / need to purchase and hand the rest back to the cashier.  (I know!  Bad, bad!)

5.) Taking ridiculously long showers.

1.) Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop.

2.) Northwestern Christian Bookstore.

3.) Mammoth Inc. receptionist.

4.) Benfield Group Contract Document Correspondent.

5.) New Community Jewish High School front office Admin.

What five people do you want to tag?

Well, since no one even knows of this here blog, I’ll maybe tell hubby (who’s long since abandoned his post at The Armchair Theologian) that I tag him and we’ll see if anything shows up over at his dusty blog…
