just so you don't forget me...

1) Right now I want: My backache to go away. It will, in about 5 days. (The headache will go away in about 5 years, when she turns 18.)

2) I wish I knew how to: Walk gracefully and elegantly, never tripping over my own two feet.

3) When I want to indulge myself, I: Take a book into the bathroom, fill the tub with bubbles and hot water, and turn on the jacuzzi, and stay in the tub for as long as I can.

4) You’ll never see me: in a bikini.

5) A childhood memory that I love: Driving to Grandma and Grandads--standing up in the backseat watching the water splash as we crossed the creeks that run across "Old Highway 160". As the car splashed water up, Steve and I would cheer.

6) 2 things I do every single day: Check my email, and take a bath...except yesterday, it was lightening-ing, and I didn't want to get electrocuted.

7) Happiest moment of 2009, so far: Andy's graduation. My chest hurt because I was so proud. And my eyes hurt because I did so much crying.

8) Describe yourself in 3 words: ogre, klutzy, dingy

9)What's your favorite type of Frog: Any frog that doesn't live at my house, or didn't hatch at my house, or doesn't come anywhere near me.

10) You have $40 that you MUST spend on yourself – what do you do with it? Bath stuff? Something for the kitchen? Maybe buy an antique? A book? Embroidery stuff? New shoes? Don't try to pin me down on just one thing!

FROGS - you haven't mentioned frogs or toads since you blogged about tadpoles. What happened to them? Did the chickens get some?
BOOKS - I've not read nearly as many as you have of the top 100. Am reading "End of the Spear" (I know it shouldn't be in quote marks) by Steve Saint, son of one of the missionaries killed in Ecuador in 1958 (I think that's the date). Fascinating story!!! Can you imagine yourself eating monkey? Lots to think about while reading.

We did have lots of little tiny frogs finally--Kat and Dual had a bunch ina jar a few weeks ago, but they have either left, or were chicken food. They're all gone now--still have a couple of large ones in the garage and around, but haven't seen the little ones. I sure hope they are gone!
