I've Been Tagged

1. 10 Years Ago I Was ... teaching Kindergarten and 1st Grade at Stone City Christian Academy in Bedford, Indiana.

2. 5 Things On My To Do List ... pack to move, work on a newsletter, type a paper for Steve, help Kent with homeschool, talk to Maria on the phone.

3. Snacks I Enjoy ... ice cream with chocolate syrup, Oreo Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies, mangoes, cashews, chili and lime potato chips, I could go on and on ... I LOVE to eat!! :-)

4. Things I Would Do If I Were a Billionaire ... buy a house on a warm, sunny, ocean beach, travel, invest, and give to ministry organizations.

5. Bad Habits ... My life is one Gigantic Habit! I am a totally organized, ritualistic, in a rut kind of person. I get up at 7 and go to bed at 11 every day, I eat Lucky Charms (the generic brand) at 8, while playing a game on the computer, I do one load of laundry every day except Sunday, lunch is at noon, supper is at 5. Well, you get the idea. There is more, but it's just too much and I'm afraid y'all will think I'm weird! :-)

6. Places I've Lived ... Monjas and Guatemala City, Guatemala, San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Bedford, Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio, Pell City and Birmingham, Alabama, and Edinburg, Texas.

7. Jobs I've Held ... Church Janitor, Nanny, Church Secretary, IHC Media Distributor, Teacher.

Hmm...you just reminded me that I have Lucky Charms in the cabinet. I think I"ll have some while I play uno on the computer. =)

Yes, #5 is just the beginning people.... there's so much more to be said but we'll just leave it at that. heehee I just wish I could live close so I could experience all the "fun" all of the time!! I love you BIG sis!! :) (rituals and all)

Thanks so much for sharing, Beth. That was a fun read.

Tamra said...

Thanks for playing along Beth! I enjoyed the post! Your bad habits had me smiling.

Karen Walden said...

It was fun getting to know you better! Your "bad habits" were funny! I too am a creature of habit, although it seems you are more serious about it than I am! :)

Ronda said...

Loved hearing your fun facts! The "bad habits" list was the best, though! I don't think that I have ever gone to bed the same time every night in ONE week! I do laundry every day but it's give or take a few loads! ha! I think it is so neat how everyone is "unique"! Makes ya special!

I just can't figure out how you stay so slim if you LOVE to eat as much as you say you do.

Well, having seen how "un-full" your plates have been at church suppers, maybe I just have to redefine that four-letter capitalized word.

We sure miss you guys in Bedford. Maybe we'll get to see you in Mexico one of these days.

You make me laugh! Good to see you today. Glad your weekend was good!

Beth, I know you don't know me, I know Marc and Melodie and I notice you all are missionaries also. I was wondering if I could add you and Steve to my missionary page on my website? www.freewebs.com/kimberlydavis I would put any prayer request you have and also your blog and address
If this is ok with you my email is ksd@emcs.net

Angie Davis said...

Glad to hear I'm not the only person who likes a neurotically organized world. :) We were praying you'd find a house--sounds like you found one. Now about those pictures...

Kim M. said...

Bad habits? I AM laughing. I wish I was more organized. Isn't it amazing how you view that as a bad habit and I am viewing it as good.

I agree with Brother Hight about the snacks. I remember Steve saying once that if it says "1 cookie=1 serving" that you'd only eat one cookie. People, that's why she is so slim!

REJunod said...

You sound like my mom-in-law!!! She has everything down almost to the minute and gets all out of sorts if things get messed up!! After 5 years, I'm beginning to get it figured out, although I don't think I'll ever be quite that organized!!!!

Enjoy reading your blog!! Glad things are falling into place, although we will miss you all once you go!!! Enjoyed having you around these few months of Language School.

I enjoyed this informative tag. I did my internship in San Pedro Sula. I had no idea I'd been to one of your "home" towns. Such a beautiful place.
