8 Meme

Today is the last day to enter the Hawaii Goodie Box Contest.

I got tagged by the meme of eight by Jane over at Gastion Studio. If you haven’t checked out her blog , go on over and say hey. You won’t be sorry.

And here we go…… oh, by the way, my birthday is on an 8th of a month, so I really like the number. Plus, the number 8 looks like the symbol for infinity.

8 Things I’m Looking Forward To
1. Summer
2. Summer writing projects
3. Hearing about the boy’s night at Junior Prom (but he might not tell me much…)
4. Each and every cancer free day
5. A vacation somewhere off the rock (although there are no plans at this time)
6. Having my student loan paid (hopefully before I retire)
7. Getting in the water and doing some body boarding
8. A day off with my husband

8 Things I Did Yesterday
1. Read your blog (stole this one from Movie – but so true)
2. Walked the Border Collie here

8 Things I Wish I Could Do
1. Travel, travel, travel, and travel (yeah, I stole this from Movie too – but got my own pics)
2. Play piano
3. Buy a piano
4. Sing a song decently enough to survive at a karaoke outing (very popular here)
5. Not let my teenage son push my buttons
6. Draw or paint
7. Take a year off of work and write full time
8. Fly (like this)

3. Dexter
4. The Closer

Ooh, thanks for all the links. You have Grand Canyon and China in your list as I do... I think China might be #1 on my list. I would also love to go to India, and back to Ireland.

Can't wait to hear about the prom.
Have a happy Sunday!

Loved Ireland, I still need to pull out those pictures and scan them. I know I had some online but lost them when yahoo got rid of their photo storage. grrrr....

Great answers and (thanks for not tagging me...LOL)

Loved reading your responses and getting to know you a bit better. I've only been to China once and it's a place I highly recommended keeping on your list.

p.s. Thanks for the plug!

Great lists of 8. I love Weeds...whenever I have rented a season of this show, I get nothing done.

Mama Dawg said...

Thank you for the tag. On my list of posts for this week. Meanwhile, as I learn this blogging life, I have left something for you on my site.

Jan said...

I LOVE the Eight Melodies video!

I'll do the meme sometime this week - but it will have to wait until Thursday or Friday. But I will get to it.

Beth said...

I always love learning more about you. And those Law and Order reruns? Total crack to me. I probably need an intervention.

Casey said...

I know, I know... I'm late to the game. It's been busy around here and I'm behind on my reader.

Thanks for the tag! We watch a lot of the same shows, Dexter is one of my absolute favorites. Also, I want to take singing lessons... you with me?
