10 Surprising Things...

According to Mrs. Dunwoody, it's impolite to talk about yourself, but since someone asked (Grace in my Heart!) it goes:

10.  I love a traditional scrapbook.  Blogging is great, but nothing beats a traditional scrapbook. I am hoping to get away with a friend this winter for a scrapbooking weekend!

9.  All things medical give me anxiety, and I faint at the sight of blood.
8.  My mom is a nurse, my sister is a nurse, and my husband is in the medical profession and routinely sees surgery.  See above.
7.  I am a better driver than my husband.
6.  In college when I took my teacher assessment test to gain admittance into the teaching program, I apparently scored unusually high in the classroom management portion.  Seems God was preparing me for a house full of little kids even way back then.  Never mind about my math scores.
5.  I would love to be more crafty.
4.  I love being Catholic!  Misrepresentations of our beautiful faith make me C.R.A.Z.Y.

3.  I don’t cut my children’s finger nails - that’s my husbands job!

2.  We have six, wonderful, curious, funny, sometimes irritating, always cute, fabulous children - by way of adoption.  I am honored that Bob and I are the ones that get to finish the race.


 1.  I have a fantastic, supportive, funny, hard-working and terribly handsome husband!

I am supposed to tag 5 blogs:

Reasons for Chocolate

Work in Progress

My Little Flower

Keeping it Simple

Where Ever He Leads Us

Gardenia said...

what a great list! I love traditional scrapbooking too. nothing beats it! why don't you cut your childrens' fingernails, i wonder. afraid of possible blood and then fainting? :) thanks for the tag.

Patty said...

Oh boy! What a tag!

I liked your list. I can only get one scrapbook in per child which includes one birthday pic a year.

The faith misconceptions, that gets my dander up every time. :)

Just to get away with a wonderful!

Yup! Your hubby is handsome, Jen!

Your kids are adorable and beautiful, too!

This is great and I had to chuckle or maybe its commiserate with 8/9. I totally agree with 9 and my 8 would be my mom's a nurse, my cousin is a nurse and her husband is a doctor, my other cousin is a doctor. Everyone use to tell me when I was younger, I would have thought you would have been a nurse like your mother. Uh, No! I'd have passed out the first day.

And don't tell my husband but I'm probably a better driver than he - but then I did have a great teacher - my dad was a cab driver.

Great list Jen!
I also used to scrapbook quite a bit and have not finished my 4th child's baby scrapbook (yet) :)
The sight of blood can make me faint too!
I love being Catholic and yes, misconceptions of our faith is frustrating to me!
And my husband cuts our kid's fingernails too!

We seem to have alot in common besides our Catholic homeschool blogs!
Have a good week!

You're back!! I read your post in reader this morning, but could not access your blog.

I did think about you when I wrote my #8 (about blood). :) Many patients were very fearful about getting their blood drawn- it was nice to be able to do a good job for them.

Great to get to know you better. :)

Jen said...

Gardenia-I have always been afraid of cutting their skin, and I am afraid I am more worried about my own blood than anyone else's!

Patty-I look forward to seeing your list!

Sandy-my dh says I missed my true calling, I should have been a driver's ed instructor! Maybe that could be my retirement job.

Tracy-thanks for reading!

Lori-I enjoyed reading your list!
