More Getting to Know Me

A blog friend answered these questions on her blog yesterday. Since it lends to knowing me, your OP, I figured that I may as well give this a shot too.

1.) What do you value most in life?

This is an easy one: my family. And while they all roll their eyes, or do stupid crap to irritate me, they are my most valuable posession.

2.) What do you think is the greatest invention in your lifetime and why?

I'm going to have to say it is the internet, with Facebook being a close second. Knowledge at your fingertips, what can be better than that? Well, maybe getting a friend request from the hot lifeguard you met on a Florida beach back when you were a hot lifeguard yourself and finding out he had remembered your name all these years.

3.) What do you think is the secret to a good life?

Stop trying to keep up with the Joneses. Wait, let me say that again. STOP TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH THE JONESES!! Work for what you have, be happy with what you've got, owe no one.

4.) What would you most like to be remembered for when you’re gone?

For always being forgiving and giving everyone the benefit of the doubt, even those who hurt me.
And being a kick-ass baton twirler.

5.) What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of?

Raising my children to be productive citizens, with solid Christian values, a strong sense of self and a good work ethic.  Sound like a  pageant answer? Well, it was. And I still mean it.

6.) If a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play you?

Oh that's easy too: Emma Stone.

We May Lose...But We Will Look Good Doing It!

Okay, I hate "bathroom pictures" and I know that someone will make a crack about the lovely trash can in the background, but I had to share this "tiger wear."  This is the latest in my Football Fabulous wardrobe.

Just because Auburn is loosing (currently 1-5) doesn't mean we can't look good doing it!

It is probably the most expensive thing in it, but I wanted something more dressy than your regular fanwear (i.e. T-Shirt)

While it's really "busy" and it really pushes me out of my comfort zone, I'm getting lots of compliments on it.

The boots, on the other hand, are really putting stress on my broken toe, so I'm gonna have to ditch them soon. I thought that surely there has been enough time go by that it should be healed enough to wear a heel. And while I have it taped securely to it's "buddy," and swaddled in a cushy sock, it appears that my foot is swelling. Since I may not get them back on, I thought I'd better take a picture now.

Whomever said "fashion is pain" must have had a broken toe too.

24 Hours: God's Plan for the Day

Someone told me once that God had planned a day out in 24 hour increments for a reason.

Eight Hours to Work; Eight Hours to Play; and Eight Hours to Sleep.

That made a lot of sense to me. Unfortunatley, it's not happening in MY day.

  I'm working more like Twelve Hours, I'm too tired to Play and well, my Sleep is suffering.

When did my life get so hectic? How do I get back on proper balance?

Something is going to have to change soon.

Falling Behind

Sorry, I seem to be falling behind. I'm behind with everything...overwhelmed at my job, exhausted a home, absentee friend. The change of the weather has me sore a;ll over(expecially my @$#%^&+!!! toe). I am up to my eyeballs in anxiety for a host of different reasons,with no help in sight. Just in need of prayers and rest. thanks

What I Wore Wednesday....Injured Edition

I think that I broke my toe again. The same toe that I broke two Easter's ago and I had to wear a pants suit to church at the very last minute. I can't really explain how I broke it, but let's just say: 1) it was in the middle of the night 2) it was dark 3) something was in the hall where it shouldn't have been 4) I may one night be murdered in my own home and none of the people asleep there will ever know because they all sleep like the dead From the looks of it later that morning, I can pretty much tell that it's broken.
I decided I would save myself a few hundred dollars and just tape it back to the toe next to it, pretty much like the doctor did. Day Two wasn't much better
Now here I am on Day Three. My socks clinging to all the tape residue on my foot, afraid to look and see what I may find under there.
I keep kicking things and running it into things and somehow bending it back under my foot. There are very few shoes I can wear with all this tape mess on my foot too. Currently I'm wearing a new pair of black clogs I got at Cato for $19.99, but they are a little big, even with socks, so sometimes I stop a little short and it jabs my toes into the front of the shoe. Pleasant sensation, really... Until next time....En-JOY
