How to Observe Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;

Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears;

Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full years instead of your lean;

Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth;

Count on God instead of yourself.

Meme – 7 Weird Things About Me

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

Thanks to Jennifer Gniadecki, I’ve been tagged.

I know that there’s probably TONS of things that are weird about me. I just have to think of all of them – LOL.

For the seven I tag, 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.

Now for my 7 weird things:

1. I still get so excited about Donny Osmond (as those of you close to me know). I’ve met him once but I would die to see him in concert. When I was younger, that was a dream of mine…and it still is.

2. The last two years, I’ve been in a Secret Santa drawing and have received Donny Osmond clothes, notepads and a calendar.

3. I still listen to albums and 8-track tapes (which includes Donny Osmond, the Jackson 5, the Partridge Family, Rex Smith, Eagles, Barry Manilow, Elvis Presley, and tons of others).

4. For some reason, it irritates me to go to someone’s home, walk into the restroom, and have the toilet lid up.

5. To go along with #4, I also have to fix the toilet paper so that it goes from the top when you use it.

6. I enjoy cleaning my house (just need to make time for it and kick everyone out).

7. It really didn’t take me that long to come up with this list (scary)!

The seven people I choose to tag are:

1. Yvonne Weld
2. Terry Green
3. Karen McGreevey
4. Becki Noles
5. Dale Noles
6. Heather Jacobson
7. Jaime Mann

OK everyone! Now it’s your turn!!!
