K is for Kindness

Thanks to Marie' for 7-tagging me. I thought that was so kind. So, yes, I will play along. As far as other kind things: I really believe in the sayings, "What goes around, comes around" and "Do unto others, kindly and true, as you would have others do unto you." (The latter of the two I make my kids repeat until they say it in their sleep).

7 things that I can do:
1. Entertain more than 15 kids at one time
2. Sightread music
3. Keep secrets
4. Dance
5. Block 6' 4" tall men in volleyball
6. Make greeting card/stationary
7. Knock on strangers' doors and talk about Proposition 8

7 things I cannot do:
1. Be patient (well, I probably can do it, but it's so hard)
2. Bowl
3. Grow really, really long fingernails
4. Shop at expensive department stores
5. Keep the top of my clothes dryer clutter-free
6. Buy processed cheeses or meats
7. Refrain from quizzing people on where various products are made (I'm a nerd at heart).

7 things I say often:
1. Let it go in one ear and out the other.
2. Hi, babe (usual greeting for hubby).
3. Do not talk back to me!
4. Time to eat!
5. Shhhh.
6. Call me.
7. How was work/school today?

7 things I plan to do before I die:
1. Run a marathon
2. Visit all 50 states (only 8 remaining)
3. Write several books
4. Learn to fly a helicopter
5. Serve a mission with my husband
6. Witness my children's temple weddings
7. Hold political offices

7 things that attract me to my man:
1. His quick, charming smile
2. His sense of humor
3. His tolerance of my all-night snuggling, even if it's 90 degrees outside
4. His love for our children
5. His sincerity
6. His happiness with the simple things in life
7. How he thinks so deeply about things and then speaks with great eloquence and affirmation

7 Favorite Foods:
1. Homemade chicken and dumplings
2. Lentil soup with rosemary
3. A really good green salad
4. Greek pizza
5. My hubby's steak

It was fun reading your 7's. I wish I could sight-read music. I like Scott's steak, too. wonder why it is better when hubbies make it.

I can sightread music too. It comes in handy when you're a pianist in the church. Choristers HARDLY EVER (really I mean NEVER) give the pianist music ahead of time.
