I once played “A Whole New World” from the movie Aladdin in a wedding on my flute.
I was getting pretty good at playing my flute and was excited to get the chance to play in a wedding. It was a good experience for me. Unfortunately, I don’t really play any more. I need to get my flute repaired and then maybe I could play some tunes on it!
I always wanted to get married young.
I always dreamed of growing up when I was little. I just wanted to make my own decisions. I succeeded at getting married at a young age, even though my dh wasn’t planning on getting married until he was at least 25. I was 19 and he was 20. We were smitten.
I once told my husband that I wanted to have 9 children. He didn’t believe me! 🙂
It’s true. And truthfully, I WAS joking, but now that I have 6 children, I know that it is entirely possible to go on to have 3 more children. Not saying that we will, but I never say never any more!
I really dislike exercise. (Of course I’m saying that after I just busted my rear end in a Step Aerobics class tonight!)
I’ve never been very good at pushing myself physically. When I was in public school, I was the girl huffing and puffing at the end of the jogging line, feeling like she was about to die. Funny thing is, I’m not very nice when I’m deep into that miserable aspect of exercise. I want to bite someone’s head off. Thankfully, I am able to put on my nice face when I’m at the gym and I know that I must persevere if I want to meet my goals.
I figure that everyone doesn’t believe me when I say I’m going to lose weight.
I have lost and gained the same pounds over and over again and I’ve never reached my goal weight. Sometimes I attribute that to being the kind of person who doesn’t care about much. I’m just not very passionate about very many things. Sometimes that’s a blessing and sometimes it’s a fault. I guess it’s a gift that I have to use in the correct way. I’ve been on this weight loss journey for 4 months now and I feel like I’m just back to where I have been in the past. I feel like no one can really tell what I’ve done so far. I have to remind myself that it’s not about what others think it’s about what I can do and how healthy I’ll become in the process!
I am overwhelmed by too much background noise.
Sometimes the noise of our family and what they’re doing is just too much. I have to take a step outside, lock myself in the bathroom or just go on a drive to keep my sanity. It’s not always like this though, it seems to come in spurts.
My husband (then boyfriend) and I baked a poisoned mouse once.
Have you ever smelled a baking, rotten, poisoned mouse? I’m guessing that not many people have. My then boyfriend was having a mouse problem at his house and put poison out to take care of it. I guess one of them crawled up into the oven and died. We didn’t find out until he went to preheat the oven for a frozen pizza. Oh. My. Goodness. The smell was like poison in the air. My husband ended up puking in the yard and hauling the stove out on the lawn to clean it out. The house was left to air out overnight and was much better when he returned.
I’m glad I’m not wealthy.
Not that it’s bad to have money, but it’s a shame to see what people do when they have lots of money! We spent part of the weekend at my husband’s 20th high school reunion and it seemed there was a trend. The more money they had, the more Godless they were. I know that’s not always the case (thankfully), but it definitely caught my attention!
I Once Slept for 20 Hours Straight
I was given the opportunity to go on a missions trip to Australia with the homeschool organization that my parents were affiliated with. What a neat experience that was! But, I came home with incredible jet lag. I could not sleep on the airplane, so that made my jet lag even worse. I crashed when I got home and slept and slept and slept.
The first day my parents decided to homeschool me, I refused to do my school work.
I was mad. I didn’t want to be homeschooled. I was going into the 10th grade and felt like my parents were making a huge mistake. (They weren’t). I decided to be brilliant and refuse to do my work. My mom called my dad home and they informed me that I’d be grounded if I didn’t do it. That fixed that problem. I thought home was a big punishment, but home all the time? Even bigger. My how I’ve changed since my first exposure to homeschooling!
