My First "Meme"

Alrighty... apparently these things are called Memes, but I'm not sure what that means. Maybe "Me! Me!" I don't know... but I've been tagged! Here are the rules!

Rules are:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my 7 wonderful facts:

1. I've always wanted to be a mother! I knew I would be a mother from very young and I am so blessed to be a mom! The Lord told me in my heart I would be pregnant in the Spring of '06 about the middle of 2005. This is also how I knew about meeting my husband.

2. I met my hubby at church when I was sixteen. His family pastored a church about thirteen miles from our church. I grew up in the largest town in our county, which had a whopping one stop light and about 2, 000 people! His town was thirteen miles away. They once had a stoplight, but by the time they moved in they had been downgraded to a flashing yellow light. We met on Easter Sunday. My pastor invited his family and my family for Easter dinner. That was nine--Woah!!! 9!!!!-- years ago next month. Amazing how time flies!!!

3. I have two older sisters, Jennifer and Melissa. Jennifer is a pastor and is praying for that special someone. Melissa is married and lives in CA and has four little brats....erm, kids. The oldest of her children has Autism and cannot speak and is not pottytrained. He's 11 now. My little brother, Sean, is, was, married with a little one on the way this summer. He died in December. I miss him every day.

4. I really really REALLY want another baby!!! But I just know it's not the right time... I'll share why in number 5.

5. My hubby has been out of work for going on 8 months. He was laid off and nobody has offered him a job since. It's really hard. I miss having our own place. We're living with my MIL and FIL and their two sons as well. It's pretty crowded. I miss our house!!! I try not think about it. I know that things will turn around soon... or that's what I keep telling myself. I've got to remain hopeful or I just go insane!

6. I grew up very poor. We lived in a trailer house that was falling apart practically (literally). My dad didn't take very good care of us. I've forgiven him for that. I know he's sorry. My mom worked very hard for very little reward.

7. I really want a bicycle with a bicycle trailer with our tax return. I love being active, but I don't feel that safe just walking around alone with Anna in this town. It's just a much bigger city than I grew up in and I don't feel that safe.... sure I'm paranoid... but well, oh well! I have a wild one year old climbing on me. I should go.

2. Candi @ All Day Night
3. Tonya @ Safe in His Arms
4. God Gave Me You
5. Tara @ Family Traditions, One Story at a Time
6. The Hudson Crew @ Air Force Family
7. Amy @ Remembering Natalie


Tara said...

Thanks for inviting me to your "meme"...my first one too! I'll try and figure it out...sounds fun! As for scrapbooking and your wish that you would have started it, I'm over it! That's why I do my memory keeping through Cherish Bound. It's fast, online, simple and the books are BEAUTIFUL! Don't give up the idea of memory keeping...let me know if you want some help getting started!

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

So sorry about your brother. I can totally relate with #5. We went through some times when my husband couldn't work because he broke his ankle at work (self employed so no workman's comp) and I was on maternity leave so our income was practically nill!

I have done this meme in the past, but either I will do another if I can come up with more or I will just link up to the last one.

Tonya said...

Thanks Sweet Lady! I'm gonna post with my end of the tag tomorrow. (At least part of it) LOL!

Hey girl.
Thanks for the fun meme.
My results are up.

Candi said...

So sorry about your brother....I'm sure that must be hard!

I've got mine up!!

Sarah said...

Oh, Sarah...I am so sorry I haven't been over here to check in! Obviously I am missing out! I have been dealing with a sick kiddo, but I am sorry I didn't get over here until now. I am sorry about your hubby missing work! I will pray that God brings him the perfect job and that he abundantly blesses you! I am sorry about your brother, too! I can't imagine how hard that would be!

I bet it is a bit crowded living with your MIL and FIL~ I will pray for that, too! Hard not to have your own space. Do you guys have a craig's list? Maybe you can find a smokin' deal on a bike and trailer on there?

Have a blessed day! I hope you make it out in your sunshine and nice weather (me a bit green with envy...) :)
