So you probably had to “be there” but let me try to paint you the picture.

Scott and I are watching tv tonight after the kids finally went to bed. Usually we zip through the commercials because TIVO rocks. We just happened to catch part of a new Microsoft spot with the tag line “Windows, life without walls.”

My first thought – if you have no walls – you can’t HAVE windows…..

Anyone out there on the marketing team want to apologize now?

Meme from Facebook

1: I try to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul and strength and fail each day

3: I can’t spell my way out of a paper bag.
4: I am just a wee bit sarcastic. If you haven’t ever noticed that you don’t know me very well.
5: I was home schooled through high school and I plan to home school my children. (and no that has nothing to do with my spelling)
6: I always wished I had siblings. I once asked my mom if I could have an older brother.

12: I have had the names of my first 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls) picked out since I was 12 – the list has changed over the years. Now that I have 1 boy and 1 girl I only keep one of each on the “list”
13: My daughter isn’t actually named after me – I just couldn’t come up with another first sound that went well with Leigh that wasn’t already a name.
14: I obsess about how I could have changed things in the past while lying in bed at night.
15: I have an irrational fear that I will forget to count the number 15, so I almost always say it out loud.

You Are Bert

Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you loveable – even if you don’t love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical – you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you life your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others
