q & a – part 2

August 27, 2008

here’s my 2nd attempt at answering your questions from last week

1 – OCD-ism asked – how old am i and are my kids in their teens?

i am 37. my b-day is in november. i am NOT a fan of getting older. it ticks me off 😀 my sweet daughter, kassidi, is 14 years old and is starting high school next week 😯 my crazy son, kota, will be 12 in october and he starts jr. high next week 😯 this is why we shouldn’t blink people. time goes by way. too. fast!

2- emily rowe asked – where do i live and what do i do for a living?

i live in southern oregon. we’ve lived here since 1993. although it is breath takingly beautiful here – my heart is in southern california. i love the beach. i miss the beach terribly! everything about the beach…the sound of the waves, the force in which they crash onto the shore, the smell of the air, the touch of the sun on my nose & shoulders, the feeling of the soft sand on my bare feet, the taste of the salty water, the sounds of the birds singing in the air, running like a mad woman under the pier so said birds don’t poop on me! everything. i LOVE it!

i am a stay at home mom who doesnt get paid for blogging. 😕

3 – judi free asked – do i sing? (in the shower?)

yes. i sing. i am on the worship team and am fortunate enough to serve there each week along side my husband. i absolutely love to sing. i also write music. most of my songs are born out of my prayer time.

funny thing is…i do not sing in the shower. im actually embarrassed my family might hear me. i know. there is no logic in that. i frequently have pickles for lunch. no logic there either.

4 – cindy beall asked – how do i stay so cool and hip?

seriously. this one made me laugh. i didnt know i was! my kids tell me i am. but… that mostly comes from my son who wears the same shorts 4 days in a row. how credible can he be??? but, cindy, if you say im cool…i will totally take it! i mean, wow!

    I think I have beaten back the dreaded spam monster. I actually posted my adventure over on and a picture of the spam monster that was eating my comments if you’re so inclined to visit.

    It’ll be fun!

    Wow! I was logged into the wrong account. Always something!!

    Ha ha. Fun! Yeah, if your kids say you’re hip … you sure are doing something right. I think that actually makes you twice as hip.

    You write music, huh?? Writing music is one talent I would love to have that I don’t. That is awesome.

  11. August 28, 2008 8:14 am

    you are SO cool!!!!!

    and. funny. i get embarrassed and don’t sing in the shower either! i have a hard time recording my songs in my apartment because i’m afraid the neighbors will hear me. so i sing with my little inside voice.

  12. August 28, 2008 8:28 am

    singing in the shower can be a great warm-up for the service…especially if it’s an early service!!!

  13. August 28, 2008 8:56 am

    @Mandy, ME TOO! I have a nice little digital multi-track set up yet I don’t ever record because I don’t want to be a bad neighbor….

    Yet, I still continue all of my american idol auditions in the shower…weird.

  14. August 28, 2008 11:38 am

    you’re in denial.

    that’s okay…

  15. August 28, 2008 2:00 pm

    whats all this talk about my hips? am i missing something???

    i AM in denial. about many things 😯

    annie – when i say write “music” i mean melodies, lyrics, arrangements. i dont do “scores” or anything like that. i cant even read music. i just “know” it….”feel” it.

  16. August 28, 2008 2:52 pm

    I knows whats yous means Tams.

  17. August 28, 2008 2:54 pm

    (me catching my breath)

    I love getting to know my daughter just a little better. I put the plane tickets on top of the dresser – if you get too weird, I can get to em quicker to see if i can get a refund! :o| !!

    5th – 😕

  21. August 28, 2008 4:33 pm

    papa? 5th street is picking on me again!

  22. August 28, 2008 4:39 pm


    (me rolling on the floor)

    my stomach hurts!!!!!

  23. August 28, 2008 4:40 pm


  24. August 28, 2008 4:41 pm

    Hey 5th st. !! Backoff!! She is my daughter – and I know where you live – I go by there on the 29th of November – so your apology would be appropriate. After all she is getting old now and needs to be treated with greater respect.

  25. August 28, 2008 4:48 pm

    um. thanks papa??

  26. August 28, 2008 4:48 pm
