Another MEME tag.......

The beautiful, kind, talented and practically perfect in every way Sher at Sher the Love tagged me with this super cute award and a fun meme tag. And while the rest of us are here stuck in the continental US of A and most likely freezing and/or getting dumped with rain or snow, she is enjoying the beach in HA. I'm GREEN with envy. No.Joke. How I wish I had to deal with sand in every crevice of my body right now. Really, I could take that kind of problem. Aaaahhhh Sher, you'll just have to gloat and rub it in when you get back with your rockin tan and fun photos.
But back to ME! So here's the award and then the rules of the game:

STEP 1: Respond and rework. Answer the following questions on my blog, replacing one question that I dislike with a question of my own invention.

STEP 2: Add one more question of my own.

STEP 3: Tag eight other bloggers.

1) What is your favorite day of the week? Saturday of course. Long exercise session in the morning with either a run and weights or weights and cardio inside, or weights and a race. Something along that lines. Chloee spending time with us, Splenda being home, doing our mundane little errands and chores together. Just love the day of being together and doing what we want.

2) What is your biggest fear? Something terrible happening to my kids or Chloee. Getting fat again (please don't judge me). Really, I understand it's irrational.

3) What was your worst subject in school? Math. I still don't get it.

4) Who did you hug last? Karen. I have no idea, she just came up and said she needed a hug. Tib wouldn't - she has her space issues, whereas I'm all over it. Need a hug, come see me. I used to be the complete opposite. Hugs were for weddings and funerals. A year ago, I had a change of heart. Really, before that, but it solidified a year ago. Now I just can't get enough of people.

5) What websites do you visit when you go online? Yahoo, blogger, google-reader, facebook, ksl

6) What was the last item that you bought? A subway sandwich for lunch for Tuffster and me.

7) If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would love to go to Spain to research my roots on Dad's side, then head over to Scotland to research Mom's. But for a relaxing vacay, I go to Cancun. As often as I can.

8) What is the last movie you saw? Slumdog Millionaire. And it was fantastic. Still trying to get Tuffy to go on a date with me to it.

9) What was the longest car ride you ever took? In 1976 (before a good portion of you were born), I was 10 and we took a car ride across the country to South Carolina to see an aunt. We followed the church history trail backwards and included DC. It was July and the Bi-centennial year. Good.Freakin.Times!! I would do it again in a heartbeat!

10) What was the last TV show you watched? Just caught Glenn Beck this afternoon. I don't think I have EVER seen him so fired up! Yikes!!

11) If you had a whole day to yourself with no work, commitments, or interruptions, what would you do? And no kids? Spend as long at the gym or running outside as I wanted to with no dirty looks from any family members. Then go shopping for something just for fun. Then maybe lay down and sleep, read fluff like People and then be so lonely and bored that I would beg for Splenda to come hang out.

12) If you were to win the Powerball, what would you do with the money (besides invest it)? Contact Jon Hunstman first to get in touch with some financial advisers I could trust. Pay off my small remaining debts. Purchase two weeks in a villa in Cancun for weeks 9 and 10. Purchase a new home not too far away, but far enough.

13)If you could pick the single most pivotal moment in your life, what would it be, and why? I'm gonna have to copy Sher and say when I actually gained a testimony of my faith. Even though I had been raised in my same religion, I didn't always accept or follow it's teachings. Once I got to a point in my life that I made a decision for myself about it, then everything after that has been a direct result.

14) In your opinion, who is the most significant person in history and why? Again, I am copying Sher (after all, she is practically perfect in every way), Jesus Christ. Once I read Jesus the Christ by Talmage for the first time, I understood His life and purpose entirely differently and much deeper.

15) If you had a choice of places to live, where would it be? The Royal Sands in Cancun, Mexico. Really. If I had a choice, you bet. I would just need Luke to live with me forever to speak Spanish for me.

16)What's a item in your home that you couldn't' live without? Tough.... but I am going to say my entire bathroom. I happen to like indoor plumbing and a hot shower. But hey, that's just me.

17) If you were stranded on a desert island, and got one luxury item to take with you, and one person to take with you, what and who would it be? The person? Definitely my Splenda. We could keep ourselves amused forever with our lame inside jokes. But he would smuggle each of my kids too, so I guess I would have to cheat at that one. Item? My running shoes.

18) If you could do one thing in your life over again, what would it be? I would have focused more on school when I was younger and gotten more of an education. As it stands now, I'm in a world of hurt if I ever lose my job. No education = holding orange flags. And I would have tried harder as a young mother. Who knows what would be different?,,,,
