Those Crazy Bloggers...

One of the questions I get asked often is Why do you do this???? Well, aside from venting my spleen, exploring my thoughts, and logging our history... I happen to like crazy people like me. They're moms, teachers, writers, and Canadians.

Some of them even live in Florida. Like SwampAngel65 at A Florida Journal. SwampAngel wants to know just how crazy I am - and I'll tell you! I'm so crazy, I'm going to do her Crazy 8s meme that she tagged me with!

8 Things I’m Passionate About:
My son
My husband
My family
My job

8 Things I Want to Do Before I Die:

Grow old with my husband
Grow old
Write a book that actually gets published
Finish working on this house
Plant a garden that actually grows edible food
Have flourishing roses in my yard
Live in an RV and host at national parks in my retirement

8 Things I Say Often:
I love you.
If you're going to cry anyway, I'll give you something to cry about.
Are you okay?
If you don't want to do pushups, don't sass your mother.
Kida, NO!
That's gonna hurt.
Stop thumping!

8 People that I think should do Crazy 8s:
Ooo - I hate this part. I never know who's done it already and I hate putting people on the spot or obligating them to do something just because I said so (well, except for Fun Monday, but people are ALWAYS breaking the rules there anyway). So if you think you want to do this, DO IT! And leave me a comment so I can go check out yours!

Which Kyrie do you mean?

SwampAngel65 said...

Push Ups as punishment? Hmm...I'll have to remember that when my squirt gets a little older!

Thanks for putting up with me tagging you!

SwampAngel tagged me too. I used to have to sing Kyrie Elaison in Catholic School choir. Needless to say, I didn't hit all the notes.

Jeff said...

There is a remake of that song by a Christian group that is pretty good. It also speaks of the song's meaningfulness, in my opinion.

Beckie said...

That was a good meme.

We like a lot of the same books.

Thank you.
