We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.

I've been tagged!

I am so excited that I got tagged for the first time by my friend Shayla. I am supposed to tell a few things about myself that you may not know. So here goes...

1. I am a wannabe woodworker and handy man!
I want to build my own furniture someday. I can never find exactly what I am looking for and if I find something close, it costs waaay too much money...so I decided I will just build my own. How hard can it be, right? My first project as soon as we are out of school will be a dining room table. I am hoping to be able to find classes that can help me learn some basics. I would also love to design and build my own house someday (with professional help, of course!)

2. I love to sing!
Many of you may know this, but I secretly would love to perform in a concert of sorts some day. I would have loved to try out for American Idol, but I was too old. I think that is age discrimination, maybe I have the makings for a law suit! I may never get to sing, but maybe I could get some money out of it!!!

3. I would love to live in a hut in Tahiti or somewhere else tropical.
We had a missionary in our ward in California and he was from Samoa. He said that they lived in a little hut on the beach and when they wanted a coconut, they just climbed a tree, if they wanted a fish, they just jumped in the water with their spear and caught one. It sounded so simple and uncomplicated. I would really love to live a simpler life like that. Who knows, it may get boring, but I would like to try it for a little while at least.

4. I bet I'm the only person you know that has been tied to a dishwasher with an extension cord!
When I was a little girl my grandparents lived with us. One day, I was supposed to empty the dishwasher and my dawdling got too much to bear for my grandmother (GG)....so she just decided to tie me to the dishwasher with an extension cord long enough to reach the cabinets. I was horrified and ended up kicking and screaming for about an hour. I wonder if that was better than the dawdling...at least I was happy doing that. Well, I'll tell you, now I can understand GG's feelings. I am tempted to pull out the extension cord with my own daughter. If I didn't know better, I'd swear you'd find her picture next to the definition of Dawdler! GG got her pay back!

5. I would love to go skydiving one day.
I really just should have done it before I had kids, now I have too much responsibility. Someday, though, when my kids are grown, I hope to do it. Who knows, I may get too old and chicken out, but as of right now, I would like to do it sometime.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I hope you enjoy reading. Let's see...who to tag? Shannon, Joanne and Sabrina. Go for it!

It's fun to create things, huh!?! It was fun reading about you since it's been sooo long that we've been connected! I wish I would have developed my singing too--although you're a natural. Just keep up the singing in the shower and little lullabies for your babies--see it wasn't all for naught! I had no idea about GG tying you up--I could see that back in the day..made me giggle!

Now I have to think of things for this too! Gosh... you given me a lot of work for today!

Joanne said...

Hey, I loved reading all that fun stuff about you.

I think I'll have to wait to do mine until after we get back from our Thanksgiving trip. It will take me that long just to think up some interesting things about myself.

What a great list Poppy! You are so cool...skydiving? You need to come to choir practice, my friend.
