dang, I was tagged...

…and didn't even know it!!! *blush*

I was tagged by Korinne.

Here are the rules:1. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you. 2. Post these rules on your blog. 3. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself 4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. 5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog. (even though Korinne didn't tell me she tagged me…lol, that's okay, I likely won't do that either, lol)

I thought this would be hard, but it was surprisingly easier than I thought.

1) I dislike going to bed. I don't know why, but I always have. I HATE going to bed at night. Not too sure if it's b/c there's so much left to do in the day, a fear of the dark and of danger, or a mixture of both. I told DH tonight that he would hate it too if every time he went to bed he didn't fall asleep! And I think that has a lot of truth to it too. I've just never been blessed with being able to fall asleep easy. I suppose it's good when you have children that wake up in the night still and you need to be able to tend to them…but it sure gets tiring. :( ….now give me a good pillow and blankie in the DAYTIME and I'm good to go! I have NO PROBLEM napping…go figure!!!!

2)I can not draw a straight line. Not on my own and not even with a ruler. It's quite sad, this inability. A bit embarrassing as well.

3)I could live off of pasta. I could eat it every day. I would if my husband would let me!!!! …of course, I'd be fat and I wouldn't be eating balanced, but that's besides the point.

4)I am growing a fear of water. I don't have a reason for it, but it grows as I age. I literally shudder whenever I am near it…which is funny. I can walk along the water's edge, that's "safe"…but put me on a bridge or a pier and I have to concentrate REAL HARD so I don't scare myself silly. I am Terrified whenever the kids go out on the boat with their dad and I actually MUST look away. The idea of them falling into the water scares me b/c then I"D have to jump in to save them!!!! The whole thing is quite silly. I have no idea what is so frightening about water to me! I can swim. I like swimming, in fact….in a pool!!!!

5)I like to be dizzy…or I used to! My favourite toy on the playground was the Tire Swing, followed by the "sickmobile" (or whatever it's called. That's what we called it!) I loved to spin and spin and spin! What fun! I would even drink enough to get to the stage of dizziness, then stop, because that's what I liked! I liked feeling intoxicated and silly without being really Drunk! Imagine how sad I was when this past summer I discovered I can't spin anymore!!!! Abi pushed me on a Tire Swing, and the world wouldn't stop moving, despite my pleas, and I had to put my head between my legs…truely sad. I have gotten OLDER!!!!!

6)I am a "homebody". If I didn't have to, I wouldn't go out anywhere! (which explains the paleness of my skin, lol) I don't like going out. I'd rather curl up on the couch and read a book, or write, or listen to music. I don't want to go shopping, or go for a walk, or anything like that. I'll go outside and lay in the sun…if I can do my "inside" things!

7) I am a worst-case scenario girl. I like to know what the details are, ALL of them, so I can make informed decisions and opinions. I am a very positive person though, which sounds strange. I just like to know the "what ifs" or "what could happen"…it makes me feel more "in control" and I can anticipate better.
So, there you have it. I hope it was "random" and "weird" enough for you!!!!…not likely, but oh well. This is what spilled out off the top of my head! Now for MY tags! I don't think I'll tag 7 (seeing as I don't think I know 7 with blogs who read mine regularly)… so I'm just going to tag Janette, Sara and Erin. We'll see who notices! ;)

why Jesus is better than Santa


Santa lives at the North Pole.
JESUS is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh.
JESUS rides on the wind and
walks on the water.

Santa comes but once a year.
JESUS is our ever-present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies.
JESUS supplies all your needs.

Santa comes down your chimney uninvited.
JESUS stands at your door and knocks,
and then enters your heart when invited.

You have to wait in line to see Santa.
JESUS is as close as the mention
of His name.

Santa lets you sit on his lap.
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

Santa doesn't know your name,
all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl,
what's your name?"

JESUS knew our name
even before we were born.
Not only does He know our name,
He knows our address too.
He knows our history and future.
He even knows how many hairs
are on our heads.

Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly.
JESUS has a heart full of love.

All Santa can offer is

JESUS offers health,
help and "hope."

Santa says
"You better not cry".

JESUS says
"Cast all your cares on me
for I care for you."

Santa may make you chuckle.
JESUS gives you joy
that is your strength.

While Santa puts gifts
under your tree.
JESUS became our gift and
He died on a tree.. The cross!

We need to put Christ back in CHRISTmas!
Jesus is still the Reason for the Season.

May you have a
Celebration of Jesus'
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

~~Merry Christmas!!~~

what is with some people???

I don't even know what to say….but I'm sure I could rant about this for hours!!! Did anyone else see this news?,8599,1695735,00.html?cnn=yes

A Dutch diplomat adopted a 4 month old girl from South Korea with his wife 7 years ago. Now they have "returned" her. Last year, they put her into the care of the Social Welfare Department of Hong Kong, where he is posted.

Is anyone else incensed over this??? Does this make anyone else's heart shatter and make you cry for that little girl. She was four months old when adopted, so this is the only family she has ever known, and now at 7, she is being discarded from them, like an animal. They say that she "never adjusted" to their family. They had SEVEN YEARS!!! How is that possible when she had Nothing To Adjust to???? I am so angry at them for this!!!! How can they do this to a little orphan girl and not wrestle with their conscience? What ever happened to the idea that she was adopted and legally a part of their FAMILY now?

This breaks my heart. Please remember Jade in your prayers that she will find a family (a REAL one) who will truely LOVE her and Keep her. I have no other words about this couple. Shame on them.
