So here is my 7 things  about me!

1)  I don’t watch any tv — ever.  My kids do, but I don’t.   I don’t want to get hooked on any shows — there’s just too many other things I’d rather be doing.  The last time I was hooked on a tv show was when the NBC Thursday line-up was:  Friends, Seinfeld and E.R. — what was that, back in 1999?  LOL  Seriously, it’s been that long.

2) If I won a few million dollars in the Lottery — I would buy a HUGE house, hire lots of help to maintain the house and yard, and I would adopt children.  I would adopt a few special needs children, too, because everyone always wants a “perfect” child, and I think the not-so-perfect ones are pretty special, too.

3)  My favorite days are rainy days.  I love the smell of rain, the sound of rain, and  being cooped up inside my home, all warm and cozy.

4)  I hate windy days because of two reasons:  it blows my hair in my face and little strands get stuck in my lipstick, and wind gives the air static electricity, and I hate getting shocked whenever I get in and out of the car!

5)  I like changing diapers.  Even the poopy ones.  There’s just something about taking a dirty bottom and making it fresh and clean that makes me feel good.  (sidenote:  I only like changing MY baby’s diapers!  It’s not like I go around asking, “Hey..can I change your baby’s diaper?”  No, I’m not that strange, LOL)

6)  I would much rather be submerged in a box full of tarantulas than a box full of snakes.  Snakes give me the creeeeeps!  I fear getting bit by a snake.  Those fangs….ugh…they just seem so painful.

7)  When I am in my 50’s and 60’s and 70’s ….there really is nothing that I want to be doing except enjoying my family.  I hope that my children live close enough that I can help pick up my grandchildren after school, help out with doctor appointments, babysitting, driving a carpool — just daily involvement.  I don’t want to ever “retire” from what I’m doing today.

The 7 blogs I am giving this award to are …

Enjoy your award I can’t wait to read more about you all!

    I am visiting from the Friday hop. You have a beautiful family and I applaud you for homeschooling. I have six children but my brother has me beat. He has two adult children and six Grands. When their children were grown they decided to foster and In the last sixteen years they have adopted eight and are raising a niece and nephew. We love big families and feel like you, each child is a blessing from God.
