White Flag

I haven't blogged for a seriously long time & Erin has tagged me to get me back online. I was resisting at first (rebellious attitudes are hard to shake) but I decided to hoist the white flag & answer some questions. Here goes...

What was I doing ten years ago?
I was a Junior at Northland Baptist Bible College. This was also the semester that my Uncle Gary lost his battle with cancer. Not one of my best years at school, but the Lord taught me SO MUCH about His goodness & mercy.

What was I doing five years ago?
I was just getting ready to start work at the nuclear pharmacy. I had been working part-time selling jewelry at Fred Meyer for just over 3 years & I had just finished a period of cleaning houses & business part-time.

What was I doing one year ago?
I was seriously considering buying a house & I was looking for a second job - a part-time deal at a retail pharmacy. I was also getting ready to head down to Greenville for Missy's wedding.

What was I doing yesterday?
I went to church in the morning; ate lunch with my parents; went on a Holiday Historical Homes tour with Mike; went to evening church (enjoyed a wonderful Communion Service); & then went to Mike's house to eat pizza & watch The Amazing Race.

Five snacks I love:
Pumpkin Seeds
Reese's Pieces
Animal Crackers
Granola Bars
Apples

Five places I would run away to:
Hawaii
Vienna
My sister's house
My Grandma & Grandpa's
Work (I know that sounds crazy, but no one bothers me there)

Five TV shows I like:
The Amazing Race
E.R.

Five things I hate doing:
Dusting
Cleaning the Bathroom
Vehicle Maintenance
Anything where I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing
Listening to conference calls (I've got one coming up in about 23 minutes - yuck!)

Five biggest joys of the moment:
Spending time with family & friends
My jobs
Running
Getting ready for Christmas
Extra vacation days


There you have it - the best I could come up with on the spur of the moment. Erin, I hope this pleases you :-)

I'm not going to tag anyone b/c I'm not sure that anyone even reads my blog anymore!

I still read your blog! It's difficult to keep things going on the blogger side if you spend your time on facebook. I prefer blogging to facebook-ing (is that a word?) because I like the journaling outlet.

My mom is an amazing race addict! We're pretty strict about tv watching so I don't get to watch it much. Everytime I've seen it though it's highly entertaining!

Who is this Mike fellow you did so much with yesterday?

Erin said...

I'm so impressed!!!!! I didn't think you would do it, but I thought it was worth a shot. I don't get to watch Amazing Race because I don't get home in time from church, but if I did I think I would be addicted. I love reality shows.

Alicia -
I'm glad you still read my blog! I'm so unfaithful but I think about posting all the time. Mike is a guy I've been dating for a while. His picture is in my July 1st post - if you're curious ;-)
Erin -
I can't believe that you freely admit that you love reality shows. But thanks for your transparency ;-) I had to post b/c I knew you would be so disappointed if I didn't *haha!

I still check in periodically! I can't say a lot a/b keeping up with a blog b/c I haven't done the greatest job at it myself! I got two done today, though!
