Here's Why I'm Happy Today ...

No, I have not become a drug addict ... I got a cortizone shot today! I feel 100% better and was even able to sing for our first Wednesday service, which is an all praise & worship night! I did struggle a bit with my voice, but made it through OK.

I got tagged by Jessie at Overflow of a Forgiven Soul. This is a new blogging friend of mine with a sweet blog. I like reading her reflections on God's Word and about her precious family. You should pay her a visit.

The tag is "7 Things." It is fun to hear tidbits, facts, unique things about your blogging friends. I have to tag 7 people, so if you don't like to be tagged, just ignore me. You won't hurt my feelings ... just be a party-pooper. So here it goes.
The Rules:

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. For the longest time, I had a huge fear of biscuit cans. I just found out why a couple of years ago. A can had exploded on me as a child. So, usually Beau pops the cans for me.
2. Beau says I have a "triangle toe." My baby toe is very small and a little pointy. I don't see a problem with the way my toe looks, but obviously it's peculiar to him.
3. Speaking of feet, I have to rub my foot, just one, on Beau's leg or the sheet, bed, or even just nothing in order to fall asleep at night. I think it might have something to do with my mom rocking me so much as a baby. Do you think?
4. I have done something that a lot of women would love to do. I had a rhinoplasty - "nose job." I actually had it done when I was 14 because I had broken my nose as a baby and had a major deviated septum and breathing problems, not to mention a bump on my nose from the break.
5. Speaking of surgeries, I've also had knee surgery. I have a deteriorating knee - torn meniscus, gristle flaking off of my kneecap, and arthritis. This is due to years and years of dance, cheerleading, and sports. Oh well, I had fun while my knee lasted. But, just to let you know, I still teach step aerobics, kick box, and run. Shhhhh! Don't tell my orthopedic surgeon.
6. I was totally into 80's hair bands. (My husband says "was?") Yes, WAS! Bon Jovi was a favorite and I could still listen to them. They ROCK! I saw them in concert twice. Motley Crue too. This was before my JESUS days! 
7. I graduated summa cum laude from Oral Roberts University. So, see ... I really am smart.

Here's who I'm tagging:
3 real-life friends that I've just discovered blogged - 
1. Jodie at Dark Between the Stars - I always thought she was funny, but now that I read her blog, that fact is confirmed. Her blog is a lot like mine - blogging about family life and other random thoughts.
2. Carlie at Why Ask Why and
3. Teresa at A LIfe at Home - These two ladies know a thing or two about saving money and shopping on a budget. I've learned lots of little tips and ideas from reading their blogs. They actually lead a small group at our church about couponing, meal planning, etc.

These were my very first blogging friends and I still love their blogs:
4. Pianomomsicle - She's so cute and she's got a little bun in the oven. I like reading about her sweet family and her everyday life. She works at a church like me, only she's a pianist. 
5. Becky at Boys Rule My Life - She was the person who issued me my first tag, so right back at ya' sister. She has 3 adorable boys and I like reading about how they're growing and learning. She's also a great organizer!
6. Jill at Live Laugh Blog - Another precious lady. She has some of the cutest babies and I love the way she blogs with such honesty. We were instant friends.
7. A new blog I just found and love - Life in the Parsonage
8. Amy at Permission to Peruse - She also writes the One Tree Hill blog. I've never actually seen the show, but she's pretty smart to be making some bucks by blogging. I also love her honesty and she has got lots of funny observations and thoughts.

Mama Belle, I love the way you handled your tag by writing out descriptions of the blogs of the people you tagged. That's great! I've never seen anybody do that before. I l'aime dat. (And since you didn't grow up in Ville Platte I'll translate that for you. It means I like that. :) I know. My skill level is fearfully impressive.)

Also, All together now: All hail King Cortizone. :) The miracles of cortizone are rivalled only by Jesus. :) OH, I kid!

I just realized it's 7:30 and we're all still in our jammies. And Noah is still in bed.
Gotta go. :)
