With this post, I hereby tag the following fellow Bloggers to post the same: Tiffani, Nikki and Sierra. Because they're the only ones I know that can/will do it (out of fear--heehee).
1. I love the Lord, even though my attitude and behavior at times doesn't reflect it. But I try to improve each day. And that counts for something.

3. I hate Starbucks.
4. My oldest daughter LOVES Starbucks.
5. Yes, I know that's pathetic when you're only 12.
6. My other two kids get soy hot chocolates there. So, I'm only halfway a bad mom.

8. Writing that makes me feel old.
9. I have gray hairs that I yank out upon notice.
