I got tagged . . . sigh.

Just kidding, Aunt S, I really am glad to do this. :)

I'm supposed to list 5 things that no one knows about me. This is going to be difficult. I'm quite transparent. Umm. . .

1. I am still homesick for Puerto Rico. Seriously, you'd think after 5 years I would get over it or something, but no, every day I still have little pangs for "mi patria".

2. I teach private piano lessons. Nobody knows this, because I just started. I just signed up my 5th student, and I have SOOOO much fun. It's exciting to be doing something that I'm passionate about again.

3. I make breakfast for my husband every morning. This is no small feat, since he leaves the house between 6 and 6:30 every morning, and I am SO not the morning person.

4. I jog 6 1/2 miles every day. Yeah, you wouldn't know it. But I do.

5. I have a hummingbird feeder(and 2 hummingbirds that visit it). This is as close to pets as Edward will let me get. I LIVE for these birds! ;)

Okay, now here's the part where I tag someone else. I tag. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Sarah Jane (hopefully she reads my blog!)

You must not be too transparent- I'm your sister, and I only knew #2. Or maybe that just shows how pathetically bad I am at keeping in touch!

Did you say 6 1/2 miles... every day?! Wow. How long does that take? Amazing. You're an inspiration.

Wow, so much I didn't know! I 'm not a morning person either-W would love a wife that functioned enough to cook in the morning.

Dang Marian...I envy your running passion! Congrats on getting your 5th piano student! It's good to hear you're doing well!

I miss PR too! I really need to go back. That is so great that you are still running a ton. I remember we tried running around the temple at 5:30 in the morning, but I think we maybe ran a 1/2 mile a day. I guess it was something! I am also very impressed you cook breakfast for your husband everyday. Brett makes himself toast.

You got married and you didn't tell us???!!!! I'm so heartbroken... A big hug from Jorge and me, Sheila, Reyes.

I had no idea you were in PR - what were you there for?

Nothing in this life is sweeter than working on that which you love. Family, music, whatever. So glad the Lord is providing this avenue for you!

6 1/2 miles.... holy smokes.

:D

Penelope Crackers said...

Okay I had no idea that you run 6 1/2 miles every day! WOw! That's amazing!!! Remember when you taught me a little bit of piano in college. I'm glad you have students. How fun. Also I'm super impressed you make Edward breakfast. Boy is he spoiled. Kind of inspiring me actually.
