10 11 random things about me
1- I believe in God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. I believe that lack of this belief (religion in general) is the downfall of the world…particularly the US. I believe that I am not to judge, that we will all be judged by a higher power in the end. I believe we should all love the sinner, and hate the sin. Amen.
2- I got married at 19, bought my first house when I was only 20 and my second house when I was 29. It does not end there…someday we will have a piece of land with a horse.
3- I am a totally 80’s girl. Most of the music on my iPod is from the 80’s. I was a huge fan of Cabbage Patch Dolls, puffy stickers with googly eyes, Punky Brewster and George Michael (ok…still am a fan of GM).
4- I don’t like the dark. Not that I am scared of the dark…but I am not productive when it gets dark outside. My mind says dark=bedtime. So if it gets dark at 5pm, I want to go to bed, but if it is light by 5am…I am ready to take on the world. I also feel like nothing bad will happen when the sun is shining.
5- I never thought I would be a mom to 2 girls. I always thought I would have boys. And the fact that they are girlie girls, I think makes it even harder to believe.
6- If I had to do high school over again, there is not much I would change. I was NOT popular, but I liked my friends, and I liked the choices I made. The only thing I regret was not being more involved in student council.
7- Someday I want to travel the world showing educators how to be the best they can be!
8- I collect things. Not just anything…but whatever my current crafty thing is. For example, I can’t just buy a stamp pad for my rubber stamps, I have to buy every color. You never know when you might need THAT particular color.
9- I spend too much time perfecting things. I will not do something until I am 110% sure that I can do it correctly. This means I will not try things until I am sure that I will not fall flat on my face.
10- I am not an over-emotional person. I don’t cry very often and I don’t get jump-for-joy-excited about things. I leave the romantic stuff up to my husband. With that being said, there is nothing greater in the world than seeing a child’s face light up at Christmas…or when you go to Disney World.
11- I am so lucky to have a loving husband, 2 beautiful girls and 1 dog.
***You might be wondering why this blog is so random in parts. Back in 2009 when really started blogging, I did so on a blog about EVERYTHING! Over time, I have decided to focus certain blogs on certain parts of my life, so I ripped my blog apart and this is what you have. If you are interested, I keep an educational blog over at www.knowledgecornerstone.com 😉
