Eight meme's

I've been tagged by Steph

Eight Things I Have a Passion for:
1) Family. Plain and simple. Don't mess with my family cuz I get very upset. I come from a very close knit family and I married into a pretty close family too. It gets chaotic on holidays, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
2) Sports. I am not your typical chick, I love sports baseball is my love. There is something about baseball! I love (college) football too as well as some other sports, but give me a good baseball game any day.
3) Weekends. I wish my life away one week at a time. If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time you know that we are not a "normal" family right now and the only time we get to be that is on the weekends.
4) Mike. I love him more than I could have ever imagined being able to love someone that didn't give birth to me (or help create me) or that I gave birth to.
5) Spa Days. to me there is nothing better then letting someone else tend to your needs and escaping for a bit. Awwww...relaxation
6) Music. I love all kinds, my CD collection is quite the plethora of music.
7) Honesty. I hate when people blatanly lie to make themselves look good (or better) especially when everyone around them knows they are lying. I won't go into a lot of detail, but I deal with this in our extended family all.the.time and it drives me nuts!
8) My kids!

Eight Things I Would Like to do Before I Die:
1) Run. Since my accident I have not been able to, but I do often dream about it. I wake up with my legs just going, but then I'm sore the next day.
2) Take a month long cruise
3) Watch my kid's grow (and an added bonus would be for them to be responsible and not like other people in my extended family.)
4) Develop a scholarship for a young person to go to college who might otherwise never be able to.
5) Visit Ireland with Mike.
6) Speak another language.
7) See my grandkids grow up.
8) Adopt a child.

Eight Things I Say a Lot:
1) Really??
2) umm OK
3) Are you serious? (Usually to my kids when they do something that they know they're not aloud to do.)
4) Wanna sit on the potty? (sad but true)
5) I love you
6) Great job (positive reinforcement works better than discipline)
7) I am so proud of you (Taylor lives for this statement.)
8) Hello...
