Getting to know me

I've been tagged by Jenifer at By His Grace. Here is what she wants to know:

What I was doing 10 years ago: (1998)- and please know that I didn't quite yet know the saving grace of Jesus at this point...so don't let anything shock you! :)

---Thank God that by his saving grace I am passed all of this!

*NOT laundry since I got all of it done on Tuesday-but tomorrow I will be busy with it again!
*cleaning bathrooms...'Oh, why must we be the ones'...can't you just hear the lament!
*thinking about the fact that I'm starting my new healthy lifestyle on Sunday, soooo....
*I'll be eating whatever I feel like :)
*Cooking up a great dinner since the kids don't have practices tonight

5 things I would do if I were a billionaire:

*give all the $ necessary for my church to build their first church building- we currently meet in an 'unused' wing of the hospital

*also for the education of nieces and nephews
*invest

5 bad habits:

*temper--doing much better
*quick tongue- doing much better
*won't let anyone wear only socks on their feet when around the house...I have NO idea why-it just drives me crazy!! :)
*OCD...Ahhhh-to only let some of those pesky details go....
*not getting around to showering until late morning- on most days-but hey, I've only got so much time :)

I am tagging anyone who hasn't done this yet, so- drop me a line if you participate so I can come over and learn more about you!! :)


And now...... I would like to take the opportunity to give Jenifer the Excellent Blog award. You always cheer me up and you are a true witness for Christ in everything you say. I am always encouraged by you. ENJOY!! :)

Ahhhh... you are too sweet! Thanks for the award. You are a blessing and encouragement to me!

Girl, I love me some chips too. Especially dill pickle chips. Yummo! I'm cleaning bathrooms today too- gross! Still doing laundry. I should have added to the what would I do if I were a billionarie list- I would hire someone to do all my laundry. I really don't mind the washing. It's the folding and putting away that drives me nuts. Anyway... ya gotta do what ya gotta do right!?!

Have a blessed day dear friend and enjoy your family dinner tonight.

Love ya,
Jenifer

Please pray for my husband. He's about to have oral surgery (he just found out) and he's supposed to go into the field afterwards. Thanks!
Laura

Jenifer said...

Hey, girl. I was reading over your post again and noticed...not a big deal... but in the first line you have By His Design instead of By His Grace...not a big deal.

love ya

Carol said...

Too funny! Do you mean everyone has to wear shoes all the time or can they go bare foot?

Cheri said...

Laura-I will be praying for your husband today. Let me know how things go.

Carol-No shoes, just barefoot :)

Jenifer-I seriuosly kept looking at it knowing something was wrong but could never figure it out. DUH! Thanks :)

Cheri;
I'll let you know my things here..since you don't know a whole bunch about me...

my to do list today ...pay bills, print and mail billing statements for my business, set classroom up for ladies Bible Study, teach ladies Bible Study lesson tonight, take a long hot bath!

5 snacks I like...custard ice cream, snickers bar, m&m peanut,nutter butter,chips and salsa. (but not ALL at the same time!)

5 things if I was really really rich...pay off families debt, buy my husband a new car, travel, pay for kids education, pay off land debt for our church, pay forward to someone not expecting it.

5 bad habits....working too much, being OCD too much, on the computer too much, not matching socks until there is a huge pile, not cleaning my van out

places I have lived...only two places: Wisconsin and Arkansas

5 jobs I have had...currently self employed (loving it), executive assistant, preschool teacher, church secretary, waitress

and thats all about me...I am sure you learned something. ha ha

Laura said...

Thank you for your prayers. He is home now and was put on quarters for three days. He said it was a horrible experience...they didn't even put him to sleep. I almost passed out when he told me what all they had to do! He's safe at home with me now. :)
Thanks again,
Laura

I loved learning more about you! I have been so busy the past two days that I haven't had a chance to do mine yet. Headed to try to now! :)
Blessings!
Oh, and chips and candy at the same time are very good! I like sweet and salty together!

Christy said...

Your To Do list is, sadly, familiar! I do, however, seem to have a never ending pile of laundry though, so laundry would have to be added to my list! ha,ha!

Christina said...

Great meme. Ditto on the chips. I can't believe how much my life has changed in 10 years either. I may do this one next week sometime, but we are moving about 3 blocks away because of housing demolition so I will not be online for a few days maybe even a week.
