More About Me

We’re all puzzles wrapped up in puzzles, best figured out by calculating the sum of all our parts. Here are some of my parts.

#1: I was interested in how my son saw me, and so asked him. “Is there anything you don’t know about Mommy that you’d like to know?” He thought for a second, a puzzled expression on his face. “No,” he finally said. “I know everything there is to know about you.”

A few minutes later he came back into the room. “I thought of one. Why don’t you give spankings like Daddy? (he’d just gotten a spanking for shooting his sister with the BBgun.)” I love the way the 7 year-old brain works. “I just don’t like giving spankings,” I answered. “That’s Daddy’s job, when you absolutely have to have one.”

#2: I like to cook, but hate to clean up.

#3: I spend my days writing, working on church stuff (newsletter, VBS planning, website, and various and sundry other things), teaching a homebound student, and occasionally doing mundane things like laundry and housework. I try to procrastinate on those as long as is humanly possible though.

#4: I love rainy days, as long as I don’t have to go out in them.

#5: My favorite modern invention: TIVO.

#6: Favorite food: Bananas Foster.

#7: Favorite Bible verse: Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, and not to harm you.” I also love the entire chapter of Hebrews 11, on faith.

#8: While I don’t think it’s amazing literature or anything, I was nonetheless hooked, and read the entire Twilight series in about two weeks flat. And I am ashamed to say that my ancient self salivated over that young studly whats-his-face along with all the little teeny boppers and their mommies. (Not pale Edward, the other one. Jacob.)

#9: Something from my Now: I am currently taking a class in Children’s Lit, and doing a project on graphic novels in the high school classroom. It’s heady stuff.

#10: Something from my Future: I’m thinking about taking a photography class, because I want to be better. Muchos betteros. Or something like that.

#11: Something from my Past: I tried to have Patsy Cline’s Crazy or I Fall to Pieces played at my wedding because I was on this Patsy Cline kick and just thought they sounded cool. My mother-in-law had to tell me that if I listened to the lyrics, they were totally about love gone wrong and probably wouldn’t be appropriate. Whoops.

    Love your list! It’s great to get to know you a little better AND find things we have in common, like #2 (but I kinda like the cleaning up part, as long as there’s someone to chat with) and #8.

    Your photography is great, and I think our sons would be the best. buds. ever!

    Thanks, Sarah–I’m pretty sure we would definitely be great friends :). (And I don’t mind cleaning up when there’s someone to chat with, too.)

    You know, I’m thinking if we all got all of our sons together, there would just be this amazing synchronicity of spirit. Especially if we got them together with Jason as ringleader. They all seem to be a little tiny bit on the same page, don’t they?

    Ah… yet another thing we have in common… Jacob NOT Edward…. (true guilty pleasure there, hey?)

    Oh, so true, Cee! (Except, in the last movie, they really needed to work on catching his vocal chords up to his pecs…it was just kind of strange…)
