Nothing you wanted to know and never wanted to ask

Well, not really, but it sounds better than "Another Meme."
My girl Aimee tagged me. Let's dig in.

The Rules:

1. When tagged place the name and URL on your blog.

2. Post rules on your blog.

3. Write 7 non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.

4. Name 7 blogs.

5. Send an email/comment on their blog letting them know they have been tagged.

1. At home we use Macs. I work in PC land.
2. I am learning to love the Mac.
3. I consume some form of chocolate every day.
4. I am a pretty good singer. Maybe one day if God puts an extra day in the week I'll join the choir at church.
5. I use blond-enhancing hair products because I am trying to recapture my blonde hair. My hair is currently a lovely shade of dishwater.
6. I have developed allergies to peanuts and shellfish since Curly Sue was born. I miss peanut butter and shrimp. A lot.
7. I am a rulebreaker; I am not going to follow rules 4 and 5 above! wheee!!!!

Be careful about the negative thoughts on church music.

I disliked the music at the local church when we moved to our house so I continued to drive an extra 15 mile to my old church. Eventually I gave up and just attended and dealt with the music.

Two months later (after whining each week to Honey) there was an announcement in the bulletin that they were in need of cantors. I hemmed and hawed for weeks. Honey thought I should do it - my voice would be a welcome change from some of the other cantors we suffered through. So I volunteered.

A few months later we had a music ministry meeting and I was able to influence some of the music selections.

Three years later I am now the director of our children's choir. This means I get to pick out ALL of the music for one mass each month. I also developed a great relationship with our music director and she frequently asks my opinion and advice on music selections.

It feels as if God decided that if I didn't like the music and was going to complain about it then, fine! go ahead and fix it for me.

T, I already got sucked into running the CCD program by teaching a CCD class. I've been here for 5 years!!! Pretty awesome huh? I do really think I'd love to join the choir, but I would wind up divorced since my husband thinks I already spend too much time at the parish.
