Liz Needs...

I thought this was pretty hilarious! Following is the top ten list of Liz needs according to Google. I, of course did not think this up on my own, but copied from another blog. I hope you find it just as funny.

My comments are in blue italics.

1. Liz needs a MAN! Hmm. Come to think of it...
2. Liz needs to put a lid on it! Nah!
3. Liz needs catchy slogan I've always liked "Liz is always right."
4. Liz needs to devise a budget and stick to it. Sho 'nuf.
5. liz needs to be laundered I bathed this morning. What more do you want?
6. Liz needs to be taught a few things about fire safety Really?
7. Liz Needs One More Taste Of Her Liz's Oozing Pastry There are no words...
8. liz needs to mine her own business "I can't mine other people's businesses?"
9. Liz needs help, but she doesn't want to involve the police. Always...
10. LIZ needs teeth Wow! That reminds me of the dream I had last night. Four of my teeth fell out. I was mortified. I've had dreams like that before. They are my least favorite dreams. Weird...

What do you think I need the most?

When I grow up...

I don't know about you, but I'm almost 24 and not sure what I'm gonna do when I grow up? And when exactly are you grown up. When I was little I figured 24 was way into the grown up phase. But I almost feel like I'm in between and don't know when that will change. Do we ever grow up?

I was thinking today of things that make me feel grown up and things that make me feel like a kid. I thought I might list some of them for you. Tell me yours.

This makes me feel like a kid:

  • I still live at home with my parents.
  • I don't know what I want to do when I grow up.
  • Driving my parents car.
  • Crying over stupid things that shouldn't matter.
  • Getting REALLY sick (and having someone take care of me).

This makes me feel grown-up:

  • Having a "real job."
  • Driving really far to visit friends.
  • Travelling with friends (sans parents). --specifically international travel...
  • Carrying a purse regularly.
  • Being an aunt (to 5 w/ 2 more on the way).
  • Seeing my friends get married (and have kids).
  • Realizing the kids I used to babysit are graduating high school, etc.
  • Seeing 18-21 year olds and thinking "they are so young!"
  • Paying for lunch (dinner, etc) with a credit card. (added 10-17)

I know there are a lot more, but those are the things that I thought of right away.

I would really love to hear what makes YOU feel like a kid/grown-up. Do Tell!

And We're Off...

My plane departs tomorrow morning from San Jose International Airport. Five people from our team of nine will be on that flight (through Houston) to New Orleans. The five of us, me, Katie, Angie, Gina and Jessica, are driving down to San Jose tonight (well Angie's husband Frank is driving us) and will stay with Katie's sister tonight. It's hard to believe I am leaving already. I spent most of yesterday afternoon and today getting ready. Went to WalMart, KMart, the bank of dad (actually I wrote him a check and he gave me cash--my paycheck hadn't cleared yet). I'm still not sure what to expect. I'm a bit scared because of that. I'm not scared for my safety, or health, but I'm scared because I know that God is going to show me some really intense things. I'm excited though, because all I hear from other teams is that Jesus is visible and spreading there. Please pray for me. Our team will be posting audio blogs at www.UGO4GOD.blogspot.com. Go there and see (or hear) what we and other groups are doing. I expect to take lots of pictures too so I hope to share them with you when I get back. Love you all.
