An Uninvited Tag

Hi Everyone! David here. If you just read Kristi's entry, I'm sure you're wondering, "Yes, but what about David?" Yeah. I'm sure of it. So, here goes.....

10 years ago, I was 24, and a school teacher in Abilene. As for the rest of my life at that time, if you know me, you know why I'm stopping here. Ha!

5 years ago, I was 29, and engaged to marry Kristi (Yahoo!). It was a great time. I was the Assistant Principal at Lincoln Middle School in Abilene, and gearing up for my first principal position.

3 years ago, Kristi and I lived in Muleshoe, TX. I was Principal at Watson Jr. High, and Benjamin was just a baby. Good times.

1 year ago, I was beginning my 4th year as Principal in Muleshoe, and Kristi and I were contemplating maybe looking to move. Kristi was pregnant with Jonathan, and we thought maybe we should stay put until he was more like a year old. That didn't happen. We ended up moving to Killeen when Jonathan was 4 months old.

Yesterday, I worked, attended a home and an away football game in the same evening (How DOES he do it?) and came home and spent time with the family. Gave both boys their baths, and put them to bed. I rock!

Today, I am celebrating, because a special event at school went well today. It was "Walk a Mile in Your Shoes" Day, and we had over 100 parents join their children at school, attending classes, having lunch, and the whole enchilada. It was a big success, and I'm really happy about it.

5 snacks I enjoy: M&M's, Sun Chips, Quesadillas (Oh, who am I kidding? Just about anything....)

5 things I would do w/$1 million: Pay off everything, Invest, Set aside for kids' college, buy a new car, Buy a house with a room for a pool table (all I've ever really wanted in this world).

5 places to run away to: my office (just kidding), wherever Kristi would like to go..

5 TV shows I like: The Office (not kidding), Seinfeld (I'm out there, Jerry, and I'm LOVIN' every minute of it!), Mike & Mike in the Morning, Pardon the Interruption, Monday Night Football.

5 Things I Hate Doing: switching car seats from one car to another (I know this is an awful thing to say, because child safety is so important, but I just HATE doing this...) Would Kristi be a better source than I am on things I hate doing? :)

5 Biggest Joys of the Moment: Being a child of God (not being corny; isn't it an amazing thing?) Having a loving wife (Believe me, I REALLY appreciate this...), Having two wonderful children (what an honor), Having such a great family on both sides, Downloading "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo" off iTunes! (I gotta get it, got, got to get it...)

People I tag: No idea.

I know this was an inspirational entry for everyone. I can just see Kristi's beautiful eyes rolling right now. If you never hear from me again, it just means Kristi blocked me off the blog! Adios!

Just so we are all clear...David posted the original post, not Kristi as the blog so indicates.
And I will go ahead and finish off the other four things my darling husband hates doing:
4. Looking for anything. As in "David, have you seen the [insert item here]?" And so the madness begins!
3. Taking off his suit in one place. This sounds a bit odd. But David strings out the "getting comfy" mode all over the house. His tie is usually on a kitchen chair. His jacket is draped over the back of the left side of the couch. His shoes and socks are in front of the ottoman. His dress shirt lands on the bed post. And everything else stays on. (This is G rated!)
2. Clutter on the bathroom counter (a curling iron left out, etc...)(BTW, it gets left out to cool!)
1. Letting the gas tank go below half a tank. It drives him crazy that I'll let mine go into the quater of a tank region! I really live on the edge, ya know!

You guys are silly. ;) Although I think it's highly funny that David filled this out. I think it'd be a miracle if Sam did!

Faith said...

Your blog always gives me a laugh. There is no way in the world my husband would ever fill out an 8 things tag but I think it would be funny if he did! Kudos to David for being so in touch with the 21st-century way to keep in touch.

I responded to your e-mail Kristi, I've had trouble with my e-mails from 5A getting blocked as spam, so please contact me if it didn't get through.

Thanks for your blog and keeping those of us who appreciate your kindred spirit so much intact with your new lives across this huge state.

Love ya!
