I've been tagged

I've Been Tagged!

My friend Erinn tagged me in this meme on her blog so I thought I'd go ahead and oblige her by participating in her questions!

Favorite person (outside family)? Anyone who has lasted the test of time and remains faithful through the good, bad and ugly (cause there has been a lot of that!).

Favorite food? Strawberry Shortcake with ice cream (99 pub and restraunt has a great one).

Quirks about you? I am always on time

How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less? Great wife, excellent Mom, devoted to family, and enjoys her work (at SRHC).

Any regrets in life? Umm..Money and its spot in my marriage. Not going to college after WOLBI..now I will never do it.

Favorite Charity/Cause? March of Dimes because of their work for premature babies, as it is been helpfully to a great friend of mine.

Favorite Blog recently? http://raganramblings.blogspot.com/

Something you can’t get enough of? McDonald's Sweet tea xtra lemon light ice.

Worst job you’ve ever had? I have loved all my jobs although they haven't always loved me. : )

What job would you pay NOT to have? sewer worker...LOL!

If you could be a fly on the wall, where? Can't say that I have thought about being a fly...so no thoughts on this.

Favorite Bible verse right now? Is 43:2 "When you pass through the waters I will be with you, when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you, when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, the flames will not set you ablaze"
And trust me the fires are blazing here, but still smiling and thanking the Lord daily.

Guilty Pleasure? Hugging and kissing my kids. Don't have money to spend even if I wanted too. : ) Oh, and while everyone is gone this weekend I just didn't do anything...boy do I feel quilty...NOT!

Got any confessions? I haven't cleaned anything this weekend as I had planned as I have been alone. Its nice to put my feet up and just relax.

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? renting a UHaul so that when we do figure out our next stop in life, its paid for!

Favorite thing about your house? its not my problem anymore!! LOL!

Least favorite thing about your house? Its not my problem anymore. I will miss our first house in the future.

One thing you are bad at? doing my daily devotions and being in the Word Daily with our Lord.

One thing you’re good at? hugging my kids

If you could change something about your circumstances, what? I would have been more wise with the Money the Lord supplied Ian and I with when the Church in Minot closed, cause then we might not be in the situation we are today.

Who would you like to meet someday? Someone willing to give me a scholarship to school so I can get my Nurses degree...what a dream.

What makes you feel sexy? Have you seen me lately, I never feel that way.

Who is your real life hero? My dad cause he has always been there for me and always says he Loves me.

What is the hardest part of your job? Patients who come to the office for one illness and add about 10 other things which then puts us behind even further.

When are you most relaxed? OK, so the most relaxed I have been in the past 4 years has been the past 3 days with no one home and everything is quiet. I don't need to go anywhere, just need about 1 hr a day to get my thoughts together without someone tugging on me. Its been nice, but definately want my angels home and soon would be nice. Miss my babies. The next 2 weeks will be very long.

What stresses you out? People doing my job and not doing it well.

What can you not live without? a hug from my kids (except over the next 2 weeks)

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? What article? Truthfully, I don't care either way.

Why do you blog? I was watching my friends blog as she and her family went through a though time with their daughter learning to walk after an amputation, and realized that this would be a great way for people to keep up with us cause I am not good at writing or calling for that matter. Now, its just something I do when I remember.

Thanks Erinn for having me do this. I hope I did it right. : )

My True Joy

Just one more thing for tonight. Wanted you all to see what my True Joy is.

Still digging

Last summer Isaac started digging a hole in my back yard where he was searching for worms. He found plenty. This summer he has new purpose with this hole.
This past winter Ian's folks had a sewer pipe break and were unable to use their facilities all Winter. When the snow finally disappeared in April they were able to get the pipe fixed. That being said, Isaac is now trying to "fix the pipe" in our yard in that hole he started last year. Too Funny!

Summer days

Today, as Ian worked. The kids and I hung out together. During the week they are in Oxford with my In-Laws so we don't have to pay the outrageous price for babysitting. They love the time they spend with Nan and Pa, however, coming home is fun too cause they spend time with ME!!! Today was HOT for Maine and we were enjoying the sunshine. Isaac, as he usually is, is dirt from head to toes. Anna, well, she would rather be in a mall shopping where its cool! That's my girl.
Enjoy the updated pictures.
