Wow, I Was Tired and I was Tagged Again

One of my favorite indulgences has nothing to do with chocolate or bookstores.

It's what I like to call...sleeping until I wake up. I know what you're thinking...don't we always do that?

What I mean is, sleeping until I wake up without the aid of an alarm clock or the neighbor's dog or a bad dream or having to go to the bathroom.

Unfortunately, there's really only one day a week when it's possible and there's usually something else that I want to do on that day. (Saturday) (And moms...I know you're hating me right now, because it's not ever really possible for you. Sorry! We singles and childless have to find the benefits of our lives where we can. ;) I haven't been able to indulge for weeks, and this week, I decided to do it.

Of course yesterday, A Passion Redeemed showed up in my mailbox and I started to read it before going to sleep. But even with that, I don't think I was up that late.

I slept until 2:40 p.m.!!!! I'm so embarrassed! I can't remember the last time I slept that late! It's got to be at least 12 hours of sleep!! I missed all that precious reading time and Olympic watching time, etc. So I definitely had a lazy Saturday, but wow! I think it's the heat. It must be the heat.

Anyway, I've been tagged a few more times, so find my answers below. This tag was from Megan, whom I haven't heard from in ages!
What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was getting ready to go to college. I cannot believe that. How has it been ten years? So I was probably saying good-bye to people, packing up my life with panic, and just all around being dead nervous.

What are five things on my to-do list today?

1. Sleep, apparently.
2. Read A Passion Redeemed
3. Write 2 reviews for The Friendly Book Nook
4. Finish organizing Book Blogger Appreciation Week. (ha, not happening)
5. Respond to all my emails.

Snacks I enjoy:
Junior Mints
Those Reese's Fast Break things are a recent addiction
Grape Tomatoes

Places I've lived:

Things I would do if I was a billionaire:
Pay off debt
Pay of families debt
Buy a house
Quit my job
Sponsor some more Compassion children and make some donations to Compassion, International Justice Mission, and Voice of the martyrs
Write a book
Travel the world

Alyssa over at Plans for Hope tagged me for this one:

Q1. If you were to be in ministry 10 years from now (whether you’re in ministry now or not) what would you like to be doing and where?

My dream would to be in France or Japan working with groups of believers in a "cell" church type of ministry. I would happily teach English or something full time.

Q2. If you could wake up tomorrow with a degree and all the learning that would have gone with it from any seminary which one would you pick and why?

This is something I have not considered for a long time, so I don't know.

Q3. What’s your poison: donuts, beer, wine, pizza, chocolate, Twinkies, key-lime pie?

I think this question is funny after the first two. Probably pizza. I do enjoy wine, but it's not, er, a weakness. I hate beer. Donuts are good, but I'm not sure I've ever had key-lime pie. My true weakness is Diet Mountain Dew.

I'm not going to tag anyone for these, but feel free to play along if you like!

I totally hear you on the sleep thing. My kids are finally getting old enough that I don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn (my son has this terrible habit) with them. I mean I can't sleep until 2pm but I'm still happy about 9 or 10am vs 6 or 7am.

I just wanted to let you know that I got your book, but I haven't started reading it. I'm still working through Jane Eyre. I'm the sloowwwest reader. Our next book club pick is Twilight. Have your read these? I'm sure you have. I do want to try to fit the Love book in there too because it looks really good.

I didn't think I could sleep until 2 p.m. either, honestly.

I haven't read the Twilight books. I want to, but the backlash over the last one has sort of made me put it off. It's not too cool knowing the series doesn't end well.

2:40pm - rock on girl! I have the same view, I'm indulging in the late mornings until we have a family someday, I plan on taking advantage of the little pleasures we can enjoy now :-)

I didn't realize this book was part of a series, good to hear its going well!

And you've never had Key Lime Pie!!?? You are so missing out! That is unless your not a big citrus fan :-)
