All Things Eight….

Sorry took me so long to post Coffeecup but it was harder than I thought…lol

EIGHT THINGS I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT:

1.  MY FAMILY  ~  I love my daughter , would move heaven and earth for her if I could.  My husband yes at times can annoy me, but is always there when I need him.  My Mom, brothers and sisters love ’em all.

2.  FRIENDS ~  Good ones are few and far between.  When a good friend comes along it’s nice to be able to share each others ups and downs.  Words that make me think friendship are: Loyalty, Trust, Tears and Laughter.

3.  LIFE ~ I’m no Tom Cruise here , but life is interesting from the smallest bug to the biggest mammal, evolution, science, how things/people change, interact and adapt.  I guess you can throw culture and language into this category, I love learning a bit about other cultures and listening to people speak in different languages

4.  NATURE ~ I love cliffs, the sand between my toes,  the smell of the salty ocean.  I love mountains, both bare and snow covered.  I love soft green grass and big beautiful trees.  

5.  EQUALITY ~  I think all people should be treated equal, no discrimination, when it comes to race, religion, love, etc..

6.  BLOGGING  ~  I’ve grown rather fond of keeping an online diary, that hopefully one day Meggers can read and have a wee giggle at some of  the silly stories.

7.  EPILEPSY ~  It has impacted our life and will always be part of Meggers life.   Awareness is very important, being able to differentiate the myths from the facts, knowing what to do if you ever witness someone having a seizure is huge.

8.  KNOWLEDGE ~  Education!  You know the saying “knowledge is power”.  From going to school to picking up a book about something that interests you, ignorance isn’t always bliss.

EIGHT THINGS I’D LIKE TO DO BEFORE I DIE

1.  Be completely Anxiety free (like CoffeeCup other than when I’m dead, which is a bit redundant really seeing the title is things to do before I die..lol)

2.  See my daughter graduate, fall in love, and get married (if that’s what she wants).

3.  Travel a bit more and really enjoy it.

4.  Win a lotto (I can dream can’t I) and donate a big chunk of change to a charity.

5.  Learn two languages the first being sign, the second not sure yet.

6.  Build a tree fort with a cool veggie garden around it.

7.  Buy my dream home, make it every thing I want and be debt free.

8.  Elliminate all calls from telephone solicitors and bill collectors.

EIGHT THINGS I SAY OFTEN

1.   Whatever

2.  Whatcha doing Megger Moo?

3.  Do you know what I mean?

4.  Just kiddin’

5.  Oh Shit!

6.  What?

7.  I hate feeling like this.

8.  Do you think my head buttons up the back (hubby hates that one).
