GTKY Sunday and Random Thoughts

I've noticed that I now have 200 followers!!! Woopee!!! =D For all of you newcomers, thanks for hanging out with me and feel free to check out that "about" button up ^ there. =) Do you think we should celebrate this momentous occasion? Hmmm. I can't decide.

Getting to know YOU

This week, I've decided to participate in Get to Know You Sunday again. I've been slacking for quite a while, so I decided today is the day to step back up!!! Head over to MannLand5 to link up!

The Q's:

1. If you accidently knick a car in a parking lot..Do you leave a note or do you get the heck out of there? 
Get the heck outta Dodge!

2. Love your body or plastic surgery?
Hmmmm. I usually say "no" to plastic surgery. But, I'd love a little tummy tuck or something right about now... Or maybe just some lipo. 

3. What about your favorite blog(s) continues to drive you back?
I think it's the people, their stories and their writing styles. Honestly, there are blogs I can't follow - literally can't - because of the way they write. I hate it, but it's true. I'm a stickler for correct spelling (though there are some things that can be excused) and GRAMMAR. I know I'm not always correct when it comes to these things, but if I can read it without stumbling all over myself, you're safe. =)

4. What percent of your blog is BS just to make your life seem more interesting than it really is?
0%. Outside of the Army, my life is completely boring and I'm honest about that. =) Still have no idea why 200 people would continually read about my boring life. =P

5. If you had to give up one type of meat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Fish. Definitely fish.

6. How often to you eat out?
Hmmm. Maybe 2-3. It depends. Usually I forego the fast food because I don't want to drive through town or beat the crowds. Laziness at its best, folks.

7. Skinny jeans or boot cut jeans?
Ugh, boot cut! There are only certain people with certain body types that can really pull off the skinny jean. I will never be caught dead in skinny jeans.

8. If you caught your spouse cheating would you forgive, divorce, or plan your kill
Haha. If you'd asked me this a few years ago, I would have said "plan the kill." Now that I'm a little older and wiser (ha), I would say "forgive," unless it happened multiple times. God is the God of forgiveness; I should be forgiving too.

Thanks for all of your comments on yesterday's post!!! Definitely a touch subject for all of us, I think. For all of your inquiring minds, I did talk to Joe about it yesterday. We've come to a decision that I'm happy about, but I think I'll keep that one free from blog-land for a while. =) Your comments [and advice] were very much appreciated. It's nice to know I'm not alone in situations like that. It's hard to know what to do, but it's nice when you know other people who have gone/are going through the same thing. So, thank you!!!

While we're sort of on the hubby topic, I wanna share this little gem with you. Joe got on FB chat earlier, and this is how we started off our little chat session. =)

FB chat brings out the best in us, don't you think? ;-)

I got a call from my "boss" today - the owner of the tutoring place I will be working for. Apparently, the student he had in mind for me to tutor is getting help from her school. I think they're evaluating her/him (I can't remember now. *sigh*) for an IEP and other things, so I suppose that's really for the best. I'm a little bummed, no doubt about it, but I guess it's not such a bad thing. It means that - for now - I can keep things up at the museum and still have time to spend with friends. That's definitely a good thing. Like I said before, I'm not even 100% sure that I want a job. So, if nothing pans out in the near future it won't be a bad thing. We'll see, I guess. 

What's even more interesting is that last night as I was praying, I asked that God would show me whether he wanted me to "be still" and wait for Him or to get up and do something. This is where it gets interesting. A girl I went to high school with just recently got introduced to the Army. Her husband enlisted and went off to BCT at Ft. Knox. He's now in AIT. That's not the point, though. =P We've been talking a lot more lately, and she mentioned something on FB about a new job, etc. I commented and we talked back and forth for a minute.  Then she shared this verse with me: "Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth," Psalm 46:10. Can you say, "Wow?" I was totally blown away. This girl - who 1) I barely talked to in high school and 2) had no idea I even prayed about that - thought to share this verse with me?! It could only be God! So, that was my awesome moment for the day. I love it when God blows me away like that. I shared that with her and she said it gave her chills. We serve an awesome God!!!

Ok, I have to share this little funny with you for today. I'm sitting here at the desk, typing away while my little Jasper is hopping up on my legs with different toys, trying to get me to play with him. This is his usual MO. I've decided that he doesn't like the computer. Anyway. I'm sitting here, ignoring his plea for playtime....when he farts. Now, his farts are more like little squeaks, but that doesn't mean they don't smell. He farted, toy-in-mouth, drops the toy, looks at his butt (trying to figure out what happened, maybe?) and then proceeds to run around the living room chasing his tail. 2 minutes later, he did it again!!!! I've been sitting here laughing my butt off for a good 5 minutes. Where is the video camera when you need it?! =P

Haha. The same thing happened with Dexter. He was actually sitting down and when he farted his eyes went wide, he looked at his butt and ran away!

I am so with you on the skinny jeans, I could never pull it off! And I like your answer to number 8# :)

Oh, skinny jeans! I bought a pair of skinny jeans when SoldierMan came home for Christmas last year. I am in NO WAY built for skinny jeans...but he thinks my "lovely lady lumps" are sexy. :p So I squished into them a few days and had curves in all the wrong places! And after two weeks of heavy eating and no exercise, they went in the back of the drawer and I haven't seen them since! However, I'd live to be able to get back into them again this year. Guess I better cut back on the pizza!!

That's a really awesome story! I love when God uses us to speak into each other's lives like that.

I can't rock the skinny jeans to save my life. I'm short and my legs are chunky!
