Eight Things About Me

Ali tagged me with this "Eight Things About Me". Its taken me awhile to get to it, but here goes...

Eight things I'm looking forward to:

  • The LDStorymakers Conference in April. Okay, I know its really far away, but I'm watching for the registration to come up and then hoping I can afford to go. It might not be feasible this year if I can't get other people to come to Utah with me and share the gas, but I'm still working on it.
  • Christmas. Of course. The kids are already listening to Christmas music. I really look forward Christmas when I don't have to plan anything else and I can just relax for a few days.
  • Losing all this extra weight. I haven't made it work yet, but I'm still trying. I can't even remember what it's like not to carry 50 extra pounds around.
  • My anniversary. December 9th it will be 8 years. My husband and I alternate years planning something. Usually we stay pretty simple and go out to dinner. This year he is hinting at something bigger.
  • Getting an insert for our fireplace. Not doing it for sure yet, but we are talking about it. It would make the house warmer and also help with our emergency planning, giving us a better way to heat the house.
  • The first real snow of the season. I don't want it to be bitterly cold, but I do like a fresh layer of snow. Anyway, if this warm sticks around much longer, I'll be able to cut fresh parsley and lavender next week. The plants have started growing again!
  • and of course...My books being published. Don't know how soon this will happen, but I do believe it will and I'm still working on it.
Eight Things on My Wish List
  • A writing critique group.
  • More time to read and sew.
  • A Bausch kitchen mixer.
  • To have my years supply of food in place.
  • An interior decorator to give me some ideas for my house.
  • A vacation to Scotland.
  • To have my mother live closer.
  • A new wardrobe.
Eight T.V. Shows I Like to Watch
  • Criminal Minds
  • Survivor
  • American Idol
  • The news
  • Dancing With the Stars
  • The Muppet Show (on DVD).
  • I honestly can't think of anymore. I watch so little television these days.
Eight Things I Did Yesterday
  • Attend the Remembrance Day services at the school and heard my daughters perform.
  • Attend the Remembrance Day ceremony at the cenotaph.
  • Did two loads of laundry.
  • Cleaned out the cold storage room.
  • Emptied the water jugs downstairs and replaced with fresh water.
  • Wrote on my NaNo project for awhile (not going well by-the-way).
  • Had two of my oldest daughter's friends over for dinner. Learn lots listening to them talk to each other.
  • Hung some pictures in the kitchen.
Eight People I am Tagging

Hey, Stephanie. Thanks for the tag - I think. ;-)

I'm right there with you on the wish for a critique group. Us folks in the nether-regions have it a little tougher than most.

I've been doing a lot of video conferencing for work, and I think there might be some potential for running a small critique group that way. Worth looking into, anyway.

I'm excited about LDStorymakers, too. I'm afraid sharing gas might be a bit problematic, though.

I will hope and pray some other Canadians join up. We'd hate to miss you this year. Good luck.
