friday five

1. Do you make New Year resolutions?
Not usually, but this year I can think of two things I want to accomplish before my 40th birthday, which is only 11 and a half months away. They are secret, though.

2. Is this something you take seriously, or is it a bit of fun?
Hmm, I would say a bit of fun, but then why would I be keeping them secret? I must be more serious than I think. (Did you know that in my family I'm the serious one? Well, every family needs one. But imagine what crack ups the rest of them are....)

3. Share one goal for 2008.
Ok, really. I'm being serious now. I would like to be in better health by the end of 2008 than at the beginning. And, I would like to not nod and smile more than once a day at something I disagree with.

4. Money is no barrier, share one wild/ impossible dream for 2008:
My answers to these kinds of things are always so mundane. But I would really like our family and friends from around the country to see our beautiful new city. So I guess I would say that I could get lots of plane tickets and invite everyone who wanted to visit. And I would like a new elevator for our church.

5. Someone wants to publish a story of your year in 2008, what will the title of that book be?
Forty Is Not Too Old For Your First Tattoo
(oops, there's the first one. well, I'm not telling you the other one, so stop asking me.)

I so share the latter part of your number 3! Why do we do it? It's like reflex for me and I want to go back and say "actually..."

And the location of this tattoo??

Tee hee. I'm so excited for you and your secret 40th year plans. I don't even have to know what they are, it's exciting that you have them!

Hi there! It's been awhile since I visited, but I thought I should let you know that I finally got that article published that I interviewed a bunch of bloggers for (you were one of them). There's a link on my blog. Check it out - you were quoted in the article. Thanks!

yay for private intentions and for approaching a new decade!

i think you were among those who told me how glorious it was turning thirty when i was yet a long way from thirty. hope forty is just as glorious!

i like your wild and crazy plans. i'll take a plane ticket. (not that i'd assume myself to be on your list or anything.)
