WooHoo! I'm Up To The Letter "K" On 13 Things About Me, Amy!!!

1. King of Kings ~ And Lord of Lords. Jesus is my Savior!

2. Kayla ~ She's my oldest daughter being 21 years old. She still lives at home and goes to school and works full time. She's a mom's girl!

3. Kara ~ Middle child. 20 years old. Going to school full time for business management and just changed jobs to full time at McDonald's. This new schedule allows her to go to school full time! Very independent.

4. Katie ~ One of my favorite names and Katie was also my favorite cat in the whole world. She loved me and would insist that I hold her from the time I got home until bedtime. She would stay perched on my shoulder while I cooked and did dishes and such. Too funny!

5. Kind Hearted ~ I love people and meeting new friends. When I ask how you're doing I truly want to know! You need a shoulder to cry on, I'm here for ya. Someone to laugh with, I'll tell you a funny joke! Someone to be quiet with, I'll sit close and let you know I'm there.

6. Karen ~ She is my most bestest friend in the whole wide world. Next to my husband, of course.

7. Kate Gosselin ~ Oh how she makes me laugh! I love this show and love seeing how patient they are with eight kids. Puts me to shame.

8. Kids In Mind ~ is a great place to check out before you go to the movies to see if the film is appropriate for your kids and even yourself. I, as a christian, want to be careful what I fill my mind with. I am glad to have found this site because there are many movies I would have gone to see but after checking them out on I have decided not to go!

9. Kindergarten ~ I cried and cried my first day and told my mommy I didn't want to go. She didn't want me to go either and kept me home! Dad made me go the very next day. Mom and I both cried!!

10. Kiss ~ I saw my first kiss the other day at the pizza place. I didn't recognize him because he's gain so much weight. Hmm, just like someone else I know. No wonder he didn't recognize me either!

11. Kiwi ~ I love them and can easily eat three or four at one sitting. Yes, I am a pig. But they are so good!

12. King of Queens ~ This show makes me laugh so hard that when I was watching it after my surgery I had to turn it off and ask for some pain medicine. I had laughed so much I made my hip hurt really, really bad!

13. Knock, Knock ~ I love a good knock, knock joke. I actually even enjoy the bad ones too!

Send In The Clowns ~ Not!!

Okay, so my last post mentioned a few things that freak me out such as balloons and clowns. I had a few comments asking me what's up with that. It is not a terribly exciting story, but mine none the less. Hold on to your seats!

When I was around eight years old I started having this reoccurring dream. I have dreamt it clear into adulthood. I guess I shouldn't call it a dream though, but a nightmare.

It is the dead of winter. The fresh fallen snow had no signs of kids playing or sledding. I have to go to bed early if I want to play outside the next morning my mother tells me.

She wakes me up from a deep sleep and wraps me up in my favorite blanket. I also grab Snuggles, my baby doll. She isn't feeling well and needs some medicine from the local pharmacy. We drive down to Hook's Drug store which was about four miles down the road.

The car was barely warmed up at this point, but mom let me stay inside the car while it was running. Yes, I know. Remember this is only a dream!

My mom was taking forever and I was getting scared. I opened up the car door and stepped into the freezing snow. She had parked right by a drainage ditch. I heard a tiny little noise and thought maybe it was a kitten. I went over to see what it was and there was a long, fat, yellow snake with white polka dots and a face that looked like a clown. An evil clown.

The snake latched on to my blanket while I was trying to get away. He was strong. But I was stronger! He did bite me on my arm, but I managed to get away and I was able to get inside the store and find mom. When she went to check it out he had slithered away.

It's been awhile, but I have had this same dream so many times and it is exactly the same every time. Creepy.

And that my friends is why I don't care for clowns.
