The One Where I Participate In 10 On Tuesday (#7)


Well, at least to Ten on Tuesday

Well, at least for this week.

I hope.

1. What television character do you identify with?
Wow. That's a really hard question. I mean, I can think of several I want to be, but actually identify with? Hmm. I will ponder this and come back later.

Well, it's later and I still got nothing. Maybe it'll come to be tonight in a dream? If so, I'll let ya know!

2. Describe your morning routine.

That depends on whether it is a day I work right away (monday/friday) or stay home in the morning (tues/thurs) or stay home all day (weds). The first two normally involves me getting out of bed somewhere between 8:15 and 8:30, showering, wolfing down a bowl of cereal and going to work. The other days I take it a little bit easier ... get up around the same time, but then I try to work out (day #7 of The Shred today!), have my 'quiet time', read blogs, shower, etc.

3. How do you do lunch? Bring from home or dine out? Same thing every day or mix it up?

We eat lunch at home everyday. It's 5 1/2 miles to camp, so it's a bit of a time killer, but it's nice to be in our house and to just get away for a little bit. We like to eat leftovers for lunch or sandwiches or mac'n'cheese. Sometimes we go really crazy and get Wagon Wheel (best $3.00 bacon cheeseburger and fries around!)

4. What is one moment that, although seemingly trivial at the time, changed your life?

I checked the phone messages at camp one day and heard a message from this guy who wanted to come work at camp that summer. I ended up marrying that guy 7 months later.

5. Name your top three beauty products.

Mary Kay super duper moisturizer

6. What do you do when you’re alone in the car?

I sing and dance to the music. I shift in my seat while making funny noises. I move my hands all over the steering wheel. I take pictures of myself. I make faces at myself. I talk to myself. I eat copious amounts of junk food. I drink lots of water and then do the "i really really really gotta pee" shift. Listen to books on tape. Call people. Play with the temperature gauge.

I drove across NoDak by myself a lot. It got long. Really long.

7. What is the ideal city for you to live in? If you can, take 
this survey ( that’s a link) and tell us the results. Do you agree with them?

According to this survey I am suppose to live in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Interestingly enough hubby and I had thrown out NM as a potential place to live because it's warm there. We'll see. Its far away from family and life as we know it. 

8. Are you waiting for something?

Aren't we always? I feel like as humans we are in a potential state of 'hurry up and wait'. I'm waiting for us to move, I'm waiting for us to have kids (hopefully not for a couple of years!), I'm waiting to graduate from college, etc, etc , etc. 

However, I'm fighting to be in the now. God has been really impressing on me that He gives us the grace/courage/strength/etc that we need for TODAY. One day at a time baby!

It's baby steps that add up to the monstrous leaps.

'baby steps around the office ... baby steps out the door ... baby steps onto the elevator"

(name that movie) 

9. What was the last shocking news you heard?
Shocking = bad. I try to hold onto the good and let go of the bad. However, there is more bad than good.

But I'm drawing a blank on all of it.

10. What are three things you wouldn’t do for a million dollars?

Sleep/stand/sit/be in a pit/den/bucket/etc of snakes
Leave my husband (or any of my family)
Renounce my faith
