I've been tagged...

That sounds so bad. In the strange world of blogs, it's comparable to getting a forward from a friend asking you to list things about yourself. Surely you know what I'm talking about.

I feel loved.

Here are the rules:
You have to tag 5 people and you can't tag the person that tagged you. You leave them a comment on their blog letting them know you are tagging them and why. Also, direct them to your blog for instructions. It is also asked that you notify the tagger when you post your list so that they can enjoy reading the responses.

Here are 10 things about me:

1. Yesterday, I came to the sudden and terrifying realization that I don't know how to properly dislodge candy from kid's throats. Thankfully, after much struggle, Eli spewed out the forsaken candy and proceeded to vomit all over both of us. I've never been so happily covered in vomit in all my life.
2. I have since become as familiar with the dear Heimlich as I can (the internet is a wonderful thing). Watch here.
3. I keep remembering that I have 5 children. That sounds really weird.
4. This morning Seth and I finally, sort of, decided that we will name our two youngest Josiah and Salome. For those of you who hate those names, there is a remedy. We give full permission to use Jo and Sally, May, Sal as alternates.
5. We reserve the right to change our minds before we get to Ethiopia.
6. I'm really, really excited to meet our new kids. Our old kids are really, really excited to meet them too. I'm not so sure if our new kids will like our old kids. They are pretty loud and obnoxious.
7. Sadly, I think they get that from spending so much time around me.
8. I'm the oldest of four daughters. That should suffice as an explanation for #7.
9. I live in a rather dreary part of the country. Last year, I kept count of how many days went by without the sun shining. This year I was too busy and now it's almost spring. Sort of. I won't probably get my crocs out of the closet until May (that one is for you, Shari).
10. In the past month, I have spent more time crying than in all my life added together. Some were tears of joy, some sorrow, and some utter, sheer relief.

I love it, Apryl! I really like the names you have chosen for your new little ones!

We wear our Crocs all year! If it is really cold, we put socks on! LOL!

Love, Susan

I know you didn't know, but I voted for Josiah and Salome! I feel honored that you would choose the two names I voted for. ;)

Apryl... Thanks for playing the tag game!! You always make me laugh out loud! I wish I could give you a hug just because, and I think I have cried more the past two months than ever in my life-- I will have to start investing in Puffs...
Love, Shari

OK, 4 and 5 are NOT about you, so I don't have to do it, right? Cuz if you cheat, then I get a pass??? :)

OK, fair enough... if you like those names, then great. Just remember, you grew up with easy to identify names. I grew up Penelope. It is no fun having a name no one can pronounce without help... (seriously-I got Pen-A-Lope!)OK, that is my 2 cents (pun intended!) :)

I won't comment again! I promise!! :) (fingers crossed behind back!)

I think Josiah is a wonderful name for you son! :) Salome is a pretty name for your daughter. In a way, it's funny picking out names so soon because legal our two little ones don't yet have the names that they now recognize as their own.

With Love,
