Asthma Girl tagged me for this one. It has been sitting in my “to do” pile for too long – doing it today finally and I hope Diane will forgive me for taking so long.

7 things I plan to do before I die:
This is a toughie for me – I can think of 9 things I want to get done in the next 20 minutes, but the rest of my life? I work better under pressure.
1. Keep on realizing what I don’t know.
2. I would like to visit Europe – probably won’t happen though.
3. Get in better shape – a continual process.
4. Lose weight – see above.
5. Become a better photographer.
6. More grandchildren please – I can’t do that myself of course.
7. To never be tired of or afraid to learn something new.

7 things I can do:
1. Throw together a decent meal
2. Crochet
3. Plan a nice garden
4. Read while riding in the car and not get carsick.
5. Usually make a baby stop crying just by picking him/her up.
6. Remember where Larry put his glasses.
7. Bake really good bread without a recipe.

7 things I cannot do:
1. Math
2. High places
3. Follow a recipe the way it is written – have to tweak them all.
4. Play a musical instrument – and I wish I could
5. Convince Riley that the UPS man is not a minion of satan.
6. Remember where I put my glasses.
7. Spiders

7 things that attract me to the opposite sex:
1. His name should be Larry
2. He should be a carpenter
3. He should be about 5 years older than me.
4. He should have blue eyes.
5. And make me laugh.
6. Some things I can’t say – my kids and my Mom read my blog.
7. He should be married to me for 32 years or so.

7 things I say most often:
1. “No Kidding!”
2. “Whatev”
3. “Have I seen what?”
4. “Okay – see that button that says send? Push that and the number of the person who called you last will be right at the top of the list. Now push “send” again. No – not “okay”! “Send”! Push “send”!” [you will notice that my list for the opposite sex mentions nothing about technological acumen]5. Riley!!!
6. “I love you too.”
7. #@*& – I try not to say it, but it slips out anyway. Sorry.

7 celebrity crushes:
I am indifferent to all of them equally.

7 people who need to do this:
1. Egghead
2. Ellyn
3. Trisha
4. Flea
5. Deb
6. Olly
7. TJ

Let’s all play – if you like, in the comments, list just one thing for each category.
Have a great day people!
