Not So Crazy Eights

Aunt Cindy tagged me for "Crazy Eights." My answers are not all that crazy.

Here goes...

Eight things I look forward to...
1. Having a calling. I feel like I haven't had a chance to really serve in a church calling for at least a year and I really like feeling needed at church. (Though heaven forbid I get called to Primary again.)
2. Bed time. Not now, the kids are already in bed, but it's an ongoing thing.
3. Furthering my education...I don't want to quit until I can proudly sport the initials PhD.
4. Getting out of this apartment and back into my house.
5. School to start. Right now, it's just Parker starting kindergarten that I'm looking forward to, but really, I can't wait to have all the crazies in school.
6. Fall clothes. I'm not a fan of summer fashion.
7. Spencer graduating for the last time. He's been in school FOREVER.
8. The J. Crew catalog in the mail.

Eight things I did yesterday...
1. Dutch ovened....GIRLS NIGHT!!!
2. I took the crazies to the spray ground.
3. Another walk to Kroger...flip flops stayed in tack.
4. Chatted with mom.
5. Attempted to keep up with the ever growing mounds of laundry.
6. Wasted time surfing Apartment Therapy.
7. Saw fireflies for the first time all summer...my FAVORITE thing about summers in Ohio.
8. Rescued Gray from disaster after disaster.

Eight things I wish I could do...
1. Take good pictures.
2. Break dance.
3. Be a scriptorian.
4. Speak in public without using notes...I'm always jealous of people who can do that.
5. Sing...not just carry a tune, I'm talkin' Broadway star.
6. Never tire of kid games and activities.
7. Eat healthier without it being such an effort or feeling like such a major sacrifice.
8. Shop with unlimited funds.

Eight shows I watch (or 8 shows I'll admit to watching)...
1. Pushing Daisies...unfortunately, I've had to say goodbye to that one after the last few episodes this summer.
2. So You Think You Can Dance
3. 30 Rock
4. Chuck
5. the Today Show
6. LOST (though I'm kind of over this one now.)
7. Malcolm in the Middle...a new found love. I've never watched this 'til a few weeks ago and I laugh my head off.
8. And I can't go to sleep until after I watch Seinfeld.

Eight friends I'm tagging...
1. Autumn
2. Abbey
3. Amanda
4. Kelly O
5. Kelly C
6. Genny
7. Jeanine
8. Becky

Wasn't that just the most awesome girls night?!?! So glad you are back to enjoy them with us! Thanks for tagging me- will probably do in a couple days! (one blog post to do first, before I forget....) :)

I started watching Pushing Daisies after you mentioned it before. I got the first season on Netflix. Love it.
And Malcolm in the Middle - the girls and I love that show too. Hilarious!

Cute post. From the looks of your splash park pictures, you do take good pictures. I used to watch Lost too until I grew tired of my ever increasing amount of questions after each show.

I see your tag, and I will get to it. :)

i also hate summer clothes. i wish i could breakdance (and do back flips) and I too love so you think you can dance. who knew we had so much in common?

Okay... Malcolm in the the Middle=hilarious! For Christmas I found ALL of the seasons on DVD (some pirated copy) and gave them to Rich. We have watched every single episode! I gave them to my mom when she was here and now they are hooked too!
Oh and I wish I could sing too. I think we had this conversation in high school...

That was fun to read! I am getting my chance to serve in our ward... I just got called as the Primary Pres. Wow, we'll see how that goes. You mentioned some things you wish you could do or be better at.. Well, you are so great at many things. I love your quirky personality, you have a great mind to design things, and you're a "go getter"... I think you're great!!

Loved your tag post. And I must comment on the Michael Jackson thing! Hey....we're all Michael fans aren't we? We have been listening to his music here too, and the moonwalk has been attempted, without success.
And Katie....WHAT?.....You don't like country music!???!!!! Well for shame!!!!!!!!!!!
