Tagged. I'm it...again!

Over the weekend, Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey tagged me--and it's getting to be a long game of tag, here. Sonya and I started blogging within a few weeks of each other, though she is fresh off the 2008 She Speaks conference and has a bit more blogging knowledge under her belt than I do. Not to mention the fact that she is way wise in the ways of the faith and is generous in sharing with us how we can continue to grow and be like wise.

O.K. Here are the rules of this tag:
  • Link to the person who tagged you (see above)
  • Post the rules on your blog (this is what you are now reading)
  • Write 6 random things about yourself (see below)
  • Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them. (Well, I'm going to take a page from Chatty Kelly's blog and not tag everyone, necessarily. If you haven't played yet and you want to, copy the rules onto your site and go for it. If you don't, it's OK. And if you want to play but don't blog, write your 6 random things in the comments section. But, I do want to thank Sonya for her oh-so-thoughtful write-ups of her tag-ees!)
  • Let the tagger know when your entry is up (Thanks for the opportunity to play, Sonya!
Sue J.'s 6 Random Thoughts:
  1. I can't eat pepperoni anymore. Ever since I had acid reflux problems (due to overwhelming job stress), I haven't been able to eat pepperoni. Too spicy and greasy. Hasn't stopped me from eating sausage, though. Or chicken wings.
  2. I collect cows. (Ahem, cow stuff!) I used to live outside of Wisconsin (like, in the Chicago suburbs) and have a major affinity for dairy cows. My Virginia kitchen is covered, respectfully, with the black and white beauties of the "Cheesehead" state.
  3. I wear a cheap anklet with sunglasses charms on it every day in the summer, from the day we leave for the beach until the day before the first day of school. (There's a blog in that come September 1.)
  4. I still love listening to '70s radio. I grew up on WABC in New York and still mourn the fact that the day they switched from pop music to ALL NEWS was truly the day the music died....or video killed the radio star or.....some other sad song like that. (And sad songs say so much!)
  5. I sometimes bite off more than I can chew. I'm dealing with one of those situations right now. (Sigh!) But I must say that my priority shuffling is getting better and faster. The Bible has chastised me more than once in this area, and I need not look any further than my past and past discipline to remember my mistakes. Now, if I could just not have eyes that are bigger than my stomach at the buffet of great opportunities. (Man, does that sound like a blog, or what?)
  6. I shouldn't be blogging now. It's late. I have like 10 chapters of Isaiah Bible study to write about. But, it's that keeping up with the blog friends. Especially this summer, you all have been so great at keeping me thinking, keeping me writing, keeping me level-headed, keeping me laughing and laughing and laughing, and keeping me real. Thanks!

I thought it was nighttime when the music died...and in Chicago. I'm quite sure I'm right because wasn't mom crying? "The door way opened wide. And my Daddy stepped inside. And he kissed my mama's face. And he wiped her tears away." or then again, maybe I'll go back a few years cause I think the music also died along with Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper----"Helloooo Baby" on a stormy night. Personally, I think the music died when my son introduced me to a genre of music called Grind Core.

The buffet of great opportunities. I think I've taken a bite or two off of that one.

Enjoyed your random things.

Thanks for your kind words and I enjoyed your six random things! It's always fun to get to know little things about eachother. ;)

Have a great Wednesday!

I can so relate to biting off more than I can chew! That's me. I call my husband the great equalizer because he helps me look at things a bit more realistically.

I did the random things on my blog so check it out.

By the way, loved what you commented on my blog about Valences for Dummies. If I'd thought of that title, I would have used it! Too funny!
