BJ at Grace Notes tagged me for the Seven Sevens meme. I’ll play because playing is easier than working. And these are off the top of my head, so don’t take ’em too seriously.

Seven Things to Do Before I Die (Lord willing):
1. See my children married to people who love God and love them.
2. Go on a cruise (it’s booked!)
3. Get back into my size six dresses (hey, I can dream, can’t I?)
4. Retire to a house in North Carolina or Tennessee or Virginia–some place with SEASONS!
5. Hold a grandbaby of my own.
6. Go to Italy, esp. Rome and Tuscany
7. Act in musical theater

Seven Things I Cannot Do:
1. Play ball. Any kind.
2. Read a certain best-selling male novelist who makes me cry–because I hate myself for it!
3. Geometry/Algebra.
4. Whistle with my fingers in my mouth.
5. Wiggle my ears.
6. Read a certain chapter of “Unspoken” without crying
7. Tolerate the hunting of endangered species

Seven Things that Attract Me to My Spouse [romantic interest, best friend, whomever](not necessarily in this order!):
1. His height.
2. His heart for God.
3. His heart for young people.
4. His sense of humor.
5. His willingness to eat anything I put on the table.
6. His (sometimes blind) loyalty to me and our kids.
7. His habit of praying with me every morning before he leaves the house.

1. LOL.
2. 🙂 (a smiley face)
3. “Uff da.”
4. “Char-ley?”

Anybody else want to just take one category and play? Feel free!


  1. Carrie

    I was tagged by a blogging friend in Canada to do this meme and posted it today. I can’t wiggle my ears either. And I also love the Outlander series. Have you read the latest yet? I thought I had read somewhere that this one was the last one, but I certainly hope not, because it leaves everything open. I need closure!

  2. Angela

    Yes, I finished SNOW AND ASHES last month, I think. And though it was a good ending, I, too, wanted more. And then I asked myself, “What are you looking for? Jamie and Claire in the nursing home together?”

    LOL. When you’re a time traveler, I suppose almost anything is possible.


  3. Cindy

    Love your answers, Angela!

    Oh, and Lisa Samson has been tagged by at least three people now, including you and me, so I think it’s God’s will that she play the game. 🙂

  4. Nick

    Yay! You finally got your cruise!

  5. Megan

    Just curious…would the male novelist you can’t read because he makes you cry be Nicholas Sparks, by any chance? 🙂
