Check out this blog carnival on Mama M. It is a little bit of fun and only takes a little bit of thought, perfect for a Friday!
Questions for Friday, April 9th:
1. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Ummmmm, have to steal one from Mama M, but I would say Reese Witherspoon. I think she is fun and cute. 🙂
2. Did you ever go to summer camp?
I went to several different week long camps.
I loved the Free Methodist Church camp in Manton! Went every year from age 9 to 16, then was a counselor for a couple years after I turned 18. That is where I found out Jesus wanted to live in me. I was 9, so the memories are a bit vague, but I know there was a puppet show where they talked about Hell. I thought it sounded scarey, so I wanted to go to Heaven. And while I still think Hell sounds scarey, and Heave is much preferred, I am glad there is more to the Christian walk than staying out of hell. I’m glad He walks with us every day. I see so much pain in lives around me, of those I know and those I don’t, and honestly don’t know how people face it without Jesus. Some of it is HARD to face with Jesus, without Him, I would be a complete basket case!
I also went to 4-H camp. LOVED it. Had one of the coolest camp counselors names Lisa. She was awesome, the fun activities were fun. (If you put your elbows on the table during meals, you had to stand on a chair in front of everyone and do something silly, mine was barking like a seal; I am a great seal!) The crafts were cool, the polar bear swim in the morning was even COOLER, but in a very different way.
One year I went to Girl Scout camp. I hated it. I don’t know if it was the camp or was the fact that it was the third one in a row that summer, but it was not fun. I don’t remember why, I just remember it was not fun.
3. What sends you running and screaming in the other direction?
Hmmmm, I guess lizards. I mean they are slimy and move really fast and yuck. Of course Caitlyn agrees with me, while Sue was glued to them at the zoo (just hours before she got sick and turned kinda green around the gills…yeah, maybe it was the lizard gazing that made her sick, see, lizards are yuck!)
4. What is something you do that drives your spouse nuts?
Oh probably lots of things, but I try not to notice or remember them. I think one is my obsession with Cafe world and Farmville on facebook. He doesn’t get it, but I use it as my replacement for TV. Or to do while watching TV. I get bored while watching TV.
5. What is currently your favorite song?
“I Loved Her First” by Heartland. It has been one of my favorites since I first heard it after Caitlyn was born. It is a beautiful story from a daddy to his daughter’s future husband, how no matter how much he will love the daughter, the daddy loved her first.
