Today's Meme

Larry and I slept in today after being out last night for prayer. We woke up and all the kids were still asleep and I wanted a bagel and coffee. We didn't have any (bagels, that is - I always have coffee) and he said, "get dressed, we'll go get a bagel." So we started our day off with a little bagel/coffee date and now I'm settling in to get all the clothes lined up for tomorrow, do some housecleaning and I although my messages are done for tomorrow (SS and tomorrow night) I still need to study them more and spend a significant amount of time in prayer.

Larry is going to pick up Savanna and Britney and bring them home from JBQ and then he'll probably be studying more for his message tomorrow and doing a few odd jobs around the house that have to be know... "honey do's".

Thought I would do a fun meme I found before I get to work on all this.

1. If you could change your name, what would it be?

I love my name so I wouldn't change it purposely even if it was very easy to. However if I ever wanted to have any other name it would be Jura. That was my grandmother's name. And if I could have any middle name to go with that it would be Rose, since she always called me her "rosebud." Incidentally, Savanna's middle name is Rose for that reason.

2. What is the worst name someone has called you?

Can't repeat it here. It's not a cuss word or anything, it's actually someone's name. And, so as not to come under criticism or reveal that name (lots of people in my world know the person - and some probably consider them a friend) I won't. But I will tell you the story behind it.

One time in an argument, my husband called me this person's name just because he knew I would come absolutely unglued to even be associated in the same sentence as having anything in common. It was like a 'secret missile" he used in the war of words we were having that night. He knows I hate laziness. There is perhaps nothing worse to me. If I'm around lazy people I shake. I can't be close friends with lazy people - they just drive me to a place mentally that is not possible for me to be under for longer than...oh, about 30 seconds without having to be "Baker Acted" as a danger to myself or others. So, in the midst of an argument he plays the trump card, pipes up and calls me the name of this I consider to be the absolute laziest person I know. Am I lazy? No. I struggle with workaholism at times. I'd rather be called a cuss word than lazy. Well think about it -lazy IS a four letter word! And besides that the bible says it's a sin. He won the fight that night just by calling me her name. Of course later he said that it was a joke - he didn't mean it - he was just calling me her name in the middle of an argument simply to get my goat. It worked.

3. If you could meet someone famous, who would it be?

Amy Grant.

4. How do you like to travel home?

Not sure what this question means, but I love being at home. If it means do I like to travel to my hometown? Yes. I like to go by both car or plane.

5. What kind of phone do you have?

A God-forsaken one. All phones are instruments of torture in my opinion. But as far as what brand or company? Verizon.
