Welcome! I hope the following post is just what you were looking for. It may contain affiliate links that help me provide free resources to readers. Please read my disclosure statement.

My fellow blogger, Gregg, asked me to complete a meme. Okay, I will admit I have no idea what a meme is, but I do know six absolutely unspectacular things about myself. I think.  IMG_9676

1. I prefer to wear grandma-like jammies. You would think I was saying I am not a good customer of Victoria's Secret, but the jammies I am wearing here are VS ones that I got an amazing deal on.
2. I am a technology addict. I start trembling whenever I hear the latest gadget is out because I am just sure it will change my life. I will spend hours researching the best gadgets and finding the best prices. The gadget in the picture is an Epson MovieMate. I love it! We've watched movies theater-style at home, outside, and used it numerous times for Bible study groups. Yep, I got a great deal on it, too!
3. I am very uncomfortable in social situations where I don't know many people. When I get to know you, you can't shut me up, but when I walk into a group my old grade school rejection issues rear their ugly head and I feel fairly paralyzed. I am greatly relieved when someone talks to me first so I don't have to pretend like I am completely engrossed by one of my gadgets.
4. Before I had them, I never really liked children. I wasn't dying to babysit anyone else's children (though I did sometimes) and I had no interest in child psychology. When other people brought their children over to my house, I was more concerned with what their messy snacks had done to my white carpeting than I was with how cute they were. Things change. LOL
5. This is a really big one for me. I was baptized in the Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints, the church my mother attended growing up, when I was 18. No, it isn't the Mormon church, but it was an early off-shoot of it. I loved the humble, generous people who attended this tiny church. They were so good to me! But I didn't like the persecution I experienced because of my connection with that faith. I honestly had no idea what the doctrine was in comparison to other faiths. I just knew they were wonderful people who cared about me. I attended an ELCA (Lutheran) college and when some of the students in my worship class found out I was a member of the RLDS church, they attacked me en masse. It was a horrible experience that added to my reticence to speak first in groups. I learned never to mention it. I have been a Missouri-synod Lutheran for 16 years and I STILL never mention my early church association. So now I have! The RLDS church has since changed their name because of its association of its previous name with the Mormon church. By the way, I attended a Presbyterian church until I was in first grade.
6. I love to sing. Most of my life that was my primary hobby. I sang to the cows at home. They weren't gone so I didn't have to sing until they came home. I sang the lead role in several musicals, sang in the choir, and earned highest honors in vocal competition in high school. I dreamed of being a professional singer. But I got busy doing other things and over the years I lost a lot of my range. I think allergies made it hard for me to sing, too. Recently my voice has improved and I had a lot of fun singing karaoke at my mom's wedding. Actually, I think they had to pull the mic out of my hands. I hope to try out for one of our church's musicals in the future.

Okay, so now the meme's rules are I have to tag six other bloggers. So I tag BarbieWendyRobinMell, Dana, and Jena. If you don't want to do it, then we won't be friends anymore. Just kidding!
