6 or things

so, i guess i have been tagged.

1. scattered thoughts on scattered pages. i have always been somewhat of a dramatic writer. whenever i am upset, i write a song, or a poem, or just a letter to vent. nobody ever sees these things, but scattered in many random drawers and on many loose and scattered pages or burried even in my children's spiral notebooks are random things that i have written. my family will have a hay day finding all these things when i die. they will think i was so strange! ps, you can see i have a consistant issue with capitolization.

2. i want to be strong. my idea of strong isnt body-builder. my idea of strong is more like a pioneer woman. i want to be tough, resourceful, resilliant, and definately strong enough to walk across the country with one child on my back and pulling the rest in some rickety handcart. i want to be that woman who pops a kid out one day and is working in the fields the next. i want to be able to be strong enough to get through the physical trials as well as the emotionally devastating ones. so, i work out like crazy not to look like some porn star or america's next top model - i have never really fit that mold. i do it cause i want to be strong like a pioneer.

3. i love to have fun. seriously, i think i am still 19. i love to go dancing. i love to sing kareoke. i love to be crazy and silly. i love to do things that are active (like lazer tag or play ANY sport) HOWEVER i am no longer crazy-reckless. ever since i fell off a cliff at havasupi falls i realized i am definately NOT immortal. although, i still love to snowboard like a kid ;)

4. i love football. more than any other sport, football is my absolute FAVORITE! i love to play fantasy football. i wish i could play REAL football (well, maybe not tackle). i have absolutely NO problem spending the weekend kickin it on my couch yelling at the tv. i love to GO to games. i completely support my husband in his desire to spend time playing and watching sports too. i can get into other sports... but i am a HUGE football fan. even right now, i am watching monday night football ALL BY MYSELF! ;)

5. i like music. duh. anyone who knows me knows that music is very important in my life. i FEEL music. people can say things to me, but i only really understand when it is put to music... i can play piano. i hurt my mom's ears when i play violin, but i also claim to play the clarinet, and guitar. Allen rules say you can claim an instrument if you can play "little brown jug" on it... therefore, i can ALSO legally 'claim' to play the tuba, Sop, Alto, Tenor and Bass recorders, flute, cello, and any other instrument you put in front of me... hehe ;) but dont ask me to play anything other than piano in church - you will be very sorry...

6. nothing. i cant think of anything else... other than i am unique - just like everyone else. if you can think of a #6 for me, i would love to know...

so, tag, you're it!

I think it's cute that jOe comments on your blog. Dave doesn't read mine, and then freaks out when his mother calls saying "whats going on with...XYZ". He thinks that I put everything on there but he doesn't read it, so he doesn't know!
#6-- you make great blankets for your kids, and help your friends do the same!

Emily, okay, you ARE a pioneer woman and I could TOTALLY see you carrying like 50 kids on your back across the plains through snow and wearing moccasins! That is so funny about you writing your thoughts on random places. My mom was a total doodler. Right after she died, and we were going through her things, we found on so many papers (mainly on bills) some little flowers and hearts that she had doodled. Our favorite was found on a receipt for an oil change a couple of years ago where she had written her favorite quotations about love, and she had written "Roger & Sherrie" and drawn a heart around it.

Wow, and all this time I thought you were working out to look like a porn star! Boy was I wrong!

You make me laugh!

That was fun to read!

#6- superwoman that takes on everything during the week until Joe is home on the weekends to give you a break. I don't know how you do it girl. I love when Phil gets home in the evenings so that I can have my alone time! You are beautiful and I am glad I learned a little more about you!

Amy said...
