Just thought I'd share a few more random things about me...
1) I am NOT a morning person! Never have been. Doesn't matter if I've had a lot of sleep the night before or just a little - still don't enjoy getting up with the roosters! But I do get up early anyway to see my husband and kids out the door each weekday morning. (Nah, I don't go back to bed - couldn't sleep if I tried :)
2) I enjoy rearranging my furniture. Some people I know change it every single month; others I know haven't changed anything in years. I don't rearrange every month but I do like to change things around. (I warned ya these were RANDOM things!)
3) I tend to be a very reflective person. I love reminiscing about good times from the past. (I do that a lot about my late mother :) I like to think about things in my life that make me smile.
4) I got baptized when I was 12 years old. It was in the middle of winter and there was quite a bad snowstorm that evening.
5) I never got involved in extracurricular activities in high school. Nope, not even one. Never wanted to. I went to school, did my time and graduated. One of my classes my senior year was a co-op job. I loved it that I went to school for only a few hours, then went to work...not only did I get paid for it but I also received credit for graduation! I worked at a clothing store at the mall. Loved that part, too - got an employee discount on all the latest fashions - HA!
6) I went on a mission trip to Haiti when I was 14 years old. Our youth group drove from Michigan all the way to Florida, then we flew to Haiti from Miami. Uh, just trust me on this one - it was a VERY long trip! Someone had a Petra tape (yes, a cassette tape - remember, it was the 80s, after all!) and kept playing it over and over and over and over. Now, I really DID like Petra but if I had to listen to the song, "For Annie" ONE*MORE*TIME after that trip....oh my! I still like Petra, though - I really do :)
7) My very first trip to Disney World was during that same mission trip after our return to the States.
8) That was also the first time I'd ever been on a plane or traveled as far away from Michigan as we did.
9) I lived in North Carolina for about 4 1/2 years and just loved it! It was pretty scary moving away from all of our family and friends at first but we adjusted and God provided the most wonderful church family in all the world. I still miss so many dear friends from NC.
10) My husband "sang" to me at our wedding, just not live at that very moment. Well, actually, here's the story...he went to a recording studio and recorded "I Will Be Here" by Steven Curtis Chapman and it was played at the wedding. I LOVE that song! It came on the radio yesterday and I still feel as tender now when I hear it as I did when Bobby sang it :)
