My Name

I saw this on ScrapnChicks blog so I went there and looked up my name. This is a better description of me than the What's Your Sign?

What Vicky Means

You are very hyper. You never slow down, even when it's killing you.

You're the type of person who can be a workaholic during the day... and still have the energy to party all night.

Your energy is definitely a magnet for those around you. People are addicted to your vibe.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.

You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.

A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.

You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life.

You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip.

People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.

You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.

You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

I dare you to look up your name.

Playing for Keeps

Yesterday at church I taught the YW as a group. The lesson was on marriage standards and why it was important to find someone with the same values, morals, ethics and goals. I had all the girls write down which qualities they would like. My brand new squeaky Beehive Trisha said she wanted someone with a 4 wheeler which I thought was really cute. It was pretty scarey teaching it though. I walked in and there were all the Stake Leaders, then Dennis came in too so the adults outnumbered the girls. But the girls were terrific!! They all participated and it went well.
It made me realize that though some of my choices I do getting more education.... but I will never ever regret marrying the FROG. I love knowing that I'm his wife for eternity.

Steadfast and Immovable

This was the introductory video shown at the RNC to let us know a bit about the Republican Party's Vice-presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.
The more I read about her the more I'm liking her. She connects with alot of people who just want some plain old fashioned commonsense from those who govern us.

I'm also feeling much much more comfortable with John McCain. I just finished reading his book Faith of My Fathers. It was amazing!! It is all about his family and his experiences as a prisoner of war in Veitnam by the VeitCong. He had oportunities to be released sooner but didn't take them and spent more than 5 years as a POW.

At church we constantly hear the phrase that we grow to love those who we serve. This man has been serving his country almost all his life. For those 5 years if for nothing else this man will have my vote come November. He knows alot about Duty and Honour. He knows how to stand steadfast in the face of oppostion and cruel adversity. He freely admits that his captors did break him but because of the encouragement he got from his companions he was able to find the strength to resist them all over again the next time he was tortured beyond all endurance. Steadfast and Immovable I like that.

Only Moron's Don't Vote

This is how I was raised. If you don't vote you can't complain about anything.
To bad he was born a Scot he is the only one making sense on TV today. You gotta love YouTuBE. I saw this last night on Craig Ferguson and it's a fabulous monologue and commentary on our policatical situation right now. I love the comment about which canidate you want to come over for dinner!!

What IF?

If you could start your life over what would you do differently?
This was a question on a MB that I belong to. I had to think a bit about my answer.

Here it is for you.

I would have tried harder to get as much education as possible. Like some of you others I should have watched my weight more.
Other than that I don't think there is much else that I would change. I would have liked to have had the means to have given IVF more than 6 trys or pursued adoption a little more aggresively, but we did everything we felt comfortable with short of kidnapping at the time so really no regrets there.
I would have liked more time with the Frog but I really feel like he stayed around as long as he did because he was so very worried about me. Once I told him it was okay and that I'd be fine he was literally gone in a few weeks.
I think I'd also like to have acted on a few more RAK impulses I've had over the years....being nicer to people and said yes more often.
