I'm really sorry I have not been consistant with posting...I'm starting a new this week. So 2 thoughts to leave you with for now:

1. FIREPROOF...WOW...haven't seen it?

2. I did this 25 random things about me thing and it was fun...despite the fact that I did it twice...and lost sleep redoing it...but it was suprisingly difficult to come up with 25 things and then to have them all gone with a click of a button!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Luckily I could remember about 20 of them...5 are lost forever and replace by new facts. was's should try it...

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I think you are an interesting person and would like to know more about you.
I just wrote and worked on 25 random things about me for a good 45 minutes and they were gone in the blink of an eye...I was on number 26....:(:(:(:((...I think I'm wait...I think I see it...I think I see an ounce of willingness deep down in there to try again...ok here I go...

1. I have 9 stupid human tricks that I can do...and no, I won't list them. If you know 6 of my stupid human tricks then we are close...if you know all 9...then you are a girl and we are two peas in a pod!

2. I am a parenting/marriage counseling book junkie...

3. I love books like "This Present Darkenss" by Frank Peretti. I love imaginary worlds like Narnia and stories like "The Neverending Story" and wish I could write books like that.

4. I think I got more out of Thailand than Thailand got out of me...and I'm sad about that...but there is always round 2 right?

5. I love to sing although my voice is not that great...I have a huge passion for dramas...writing them, acting in them, directing them...

5 1/2. I do this:.... WAYY TOO MUCH...SERIOUSLY...but I like it STAYS...:)....

6. I am pretty much bilingual although I'm not fluent in Thai and I miss speaking Thai horribly.

7. I don't remember anything before I was 10 years old...only a few little snap shots and that's it!

8. Sometimes I think that John and I are the only people on the entire planet that love each other the way we's THAT good!

8 1/2. I weep at alter calls.

9. Part of me desperately wants to go back to college and get my Bachlors or Masters in Christian Counseling and do marriage counseling for the rest of my life!!! There is nothing like seeing a marriage restored from nothing...and seeing a forgotten reminds me of the love of my savior...

10. Names of movie stars stick with me. I don't even have to try - I can be standing in line to check out somewhere and see a tabloid on the rack...and BAM - I know who Eva Longoria is and I can recognize her and remember her name F-O-R-E-V-E-R!!! Weird?

11. Parenting is alot harder than I ever imagined it to be...and it's not because of my children...eventhough I think it is sometimes...I'm learning I'm not ask patient, kind and gentle as I always pictured myself to be...I had just yet to be truely be put in a position for my patience to be tested.

12. I love things that sparkle iridescently. I have a fingernail polish called "Fairy Dust" and if I could paint the world I live in with it...I WOULD! (although John wouldn't like that very much)

13. I lost my father to bone cancer when I was 7 and I'm just now realizing how cognitivly developed you are at 7...I always thought I was too young to be affected and remember. Now I realize that I was too protected to be affected...God protected me and brought me through many things...He truely first loved me and because the lamb that was slain is worthy of His reward...I am His eternally.

14. I have a passion about keeping things simple and seeing through peoples words to the matter at heart and how that relates to my King...

15. I twirl my hair times, twirling with both hands unknowingly. I find it incredibly hard to stop even if I want to...

16. I really enjoy exercising (especially to salsa videos)...although I have to motivate myself enough to get up and do it...I even love that painful burn that happens.

17. I always hold people to standards that they set for much so that my friends are careful to admit wanting to go for something - such as staying away from junk food or making commitments.

18. I usually give advice when I should probably just shut up and listen.

19. I love people's idiosyncrasies. LOVE THEM! Like one of my beautiful friends who signs anything she might see while she's thinking...or the way John's hands look when he turns pages...or my friend with the permenant tickle in her nose that causes her to rub her nose in a circle in a cute kinda way...or the way MB seems to speak purposefully with each word pronounced beautifully...or how a dear friend of mine will trail off in mid sentence and then come back to me within a few seconds...oh I could go on forever.

20. I am a MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) in TCP/IP and a Certified Novel Administrator - I'm also a Network Engineer who has abandoned her career for the journey of a life time and loving every minute of it.

21. I can type 80 words per minutes...that is, unless it's cold - then I'm down to 60 wpm.

22. I like to know the facts and be well informed before talking about a subject and it really frustrates me when people put forth their own assumptions as truth without any knowledge or study about it.

23. I have a SERIOUS weakness for icecream...and an ultimate weakness for snickers ice cream bars.

24. I LOVE how my husband and I are who we are together...and I LOVE that I can trust him with my whole heart...holding nothing back. And I love that the way he looks at me never falters...and his's so contagious and joyful. And I...wait...does this still count as 1?

25. I feel priviledged to have been a missionary in Thailand and hope to return soon. I feel a bond with missionaries and a desire to be a support for them that is a bit hard to cultivate...I'm priviledged to have first hand knowledge of what it is like to be on a foreign mission field...unique doesn't describe it.

26.(just because I can) I love this (look at him dance!):

This is beautiful and amazing:

And this is one of the best dramas ever done:

If you like This Present Darkness type books you will LOVE Ted Dekkers. He wrote House with Frank Peretti and that's all it took to get us hooked on his books. Try Black, Red & White. Let me know if you want to borrow them.
