Well, you know life is getting pretty boring around here when you have to pull out a survey for a blog post. :)
These questions are about the firsts in life.
1. What was your first date like? When was it, and where did you go? What did you do? Did you have a good time?
My first date was with my hubby. I had prayed for a year before that my first boyfriend would be my husband & the Lord graciously allowed that. He asked me to the 2001 Valentine’s Banquet at our college. He asked 2 hours before it started (long story). After eating, we headed over to the Beauty & the Beast – Northland version & laughed & laughed and laughed. We had a good time, and the next day I found out my friends had set everything up (that goes with the long story). I didn’t think anything else would happen after that, but surprise!
2. Who is the first person listed in your phone/address book? How do you know that person, and do you keep in touch often?
Probably Jonathan & Victoria Anderson. Jon & I have been friends since 2nd grade. He gave me the chicken pox, and I gave him on of my cat’s kittens. When we lived in OH, my mom used to watch kids in her home daycare & Jon was one of them, so we were good buddies until I moved away back to CO. We saw each other for the first time in 10 years & met each other’s spouses last fall when his wife’s sister got married in our area. We do the occasional e-mail & Christmas cards now.
3. What's the first music album that you ever bought yourself, with your own money? Do you still have it?
I bought some classical music CDs when I was in high school at Best Buy for $2 ea. I use them occasionally now, but used them quite a bit when I was a teacher. It’s very calming music after a long day.
4. Do you remember your first day of high school, or perhaps your first day at college? What was it like, and how did you feel?
After being home schooled for 3 years, I was a nervous wreck to go back to school-much less high school. Thank goodness it was a small Christian school. We shared a locker, which was a good thing, because I had never ever unlocked a padlock before. I just followed locker partner around since we were in the same grade and had the same schedule-well, until I headed into band class with her. Uh-oh. How do I get back to the class I’m supposed to be in? I backtracked and made it on time to sit with the other new girls and to get checked out by the boys during study hall. At the end of the day I remember saying to my mom when I got into the car, “I think it’s going to be ok. It’s not that bad.”
5. Have you had any "firsts" recently ~ perhaps within the past month?
I taught my new Sunday School class of 4th grade girls for the first time last week. It was fun to teach again.
Go ahead & answer these for me! Or just choose one.
I was thinking while I was doing this it would be nice to hear of everyone's love story of their spouse. Maybe I'll work on that post for next week. Have a great weekend.
