A Quiz!!!

Something you should know about me....I LOVE QUIZZES!!!Here's one I found on another blog and just had to go take it. Go on over to

You are an Animated Leader.


about you

You are a Leader

  • Your solid grounding in the practicalities of life, along with your self-assuredness and your willingness to appreciate new things make you a LEADER.

  • You're in touch with what is going on around you and adept at remaining down-to-earth and logical.

  • Although you're detail-oriented, this doesn't mean that you lose the big picture.

  • You tend to find beauty in form and efficiency, as opposed to finding it in broad-based, abstract concepts.

  • Never one to pass on an adventure, you're consistently seeking and finding new things, even in your immediate surroundings.

  • Because of this eagerness to pursue new experiences, you've learned a lot; your attention to detail means that you gain a great deal from your adventures.

  • The intellectual curiosity that drives you leads you to seek out causes of and reasons behind things.

  • Your confidence gives you the potential to take your general awareness and channel it into leadership.

  • You're not set on one way of doing things, and you often have the skills and persistence to find innovative ways of facing challenges.

  • You are well-attuned to your talents, and can deal with most problems that you face.

  • Your independent streak allows you to make decisions efficiently and to trust your instincts

  • You tend to do things on the spur of the moment, not sticking to a set schedule.

  • You do your own thing when it comes to clothing, guided more by practical concerns than by other people's notions of style.

  • Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

  • If you want to be different:

  • There's more to life than the practical - take some time to daydream and explore the aesthetic sides of things.

  • how you relate to others

    You are Animated

  • You are outgoing, comfortable with others, and up for anything, which makes you ANIMATED.

  • Some people find crowds and parties exhausting, but not you! You are able to be yourself in many situations.

  • Sometimes it is hard for you to understand why others feel the way they do, but that doesn't stop you from trusting them or having faith that they are good people.

  • You know the world is complicated and that there is often more than one side to a story, so you are careful not to make judgments about others too hastily.

  • You would rather experience the world than sit back and observe it—you are not one to sit on the sidelines.

  • You are an independent thinker and don't get too worried about how others might perceive you—you are not self-conscious about being the active, engaged person that you are.

  • Although you have a keen understanding of different people's life circumstances, you occasionally have trouble seeing why people get so upset and emotional about things—they should just lighten up and have fun!

  • In addition to having faith in the world, you have faith in the people around you—you trust others to do the right thing and to be honest.

  • If you want to be different:

  • Remember that time alone can be just as fulfilling as time spent with others—take some time for yourself and you might find that there are many things in your inner world that are just as compelling as the world outside your window.

  • Your open-mindedness about the ways of world gives you an understanding of people's differences, but that knowledge doesn't always translate into sympathy. Don't be afraid to let your trust and understanding influence your feelings.

  • Family Friday

    This is my first Family Friday post. I wanted to show some pics from a recent camping vacation we took to Virginia on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    This is the view of Pilot Mountain by travelling on 52N in North Carolina.

    This is the little pond that was right behind our camper we stayed in.

    We went camping with my parents. Here is a picture of them showing the baby a fish that was caught. He was very interested in it but did not try to grab it, unlike my oldest son when he saw his first fish at 6 months!
    Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire. We all agreed that hot dogs taste the best cooked this way!! The next morning, my dad cooked bacon in an iron skillet over the fire. My 10 yr son said it was the best bacon he ever tasted, saying "I think the fresh air jumps inside the bacon and makes it tastes better!" We all agree!!

    Starting over...

    I have decided to try to move my previous blog. I was looking for a way to be able to make more categories easier and to organize multiple posts. Hopefully, this will be it.

    A quick little intro in case you didn't know me before: I am a 30+ yo mom, happily married for 19 yrs, we have 5 blessings from 18 yrs down to 5 mos. and one dog, we have homeschooled since the beginning and will be graduating our first in 2008. We have lived in North Carolina, Michigan and now reside in Florida.
