Courtesy of Michele...

Life is not very interesting right now- nothing fun to take pictures of and post unless you want to see me putting away laundry, FINALLY filling in the whiteboard JANUARY / FEBRUARY calendars, paying bills, on the elliptical, or (well, this actually would be entertaining) - trying to get through the slalom ski course on the Wii-Fit without hitting a gate. ("Just one more try, Mikayla" repeated over and over again until I finally achieved my "champion" goal!).

So, I'm pulling out something I found at Michele's - questions that she put together in order to get to know the new girls in her high school group.

I'll present a few today and would love it if you choose any or all to answer in the comments. I'll go ahead and put my answers in itallics....

1. I find myself absolutely giddy when I am....

Walking out of Autzen stadium with the Whites after a hard-won Duck football victory against a ranked opponent, listening to the first Christmas music of the season, driving to Sunriver in December, experiencing the first morning in the hot tub at Sunriver, watching any of my family experience feelings of giddiness-

2. When I look at close friendships, I find that I value these qualities in a friend:

Transparency, being able to laugh at oneself, a person that is not critical, not arrogant or full of oneself, someone that does not have it altogether, not (generally) a Debbie-Downer (but willing to listen to me when I am!), willing to confide - and trustworthy enough to confide in.

3. One issue in my life that I know God is helping me work on is:

Organizing my life with His priorities in mind, vs. what I believe has to be done, or what I just feel like doing....

#1 - Watching my children be successful - like on the football or soccer field or on stage. Catching a glimpse of my hubby doing certain things - he still makes me giddy!
