is iT bAD oR WrONg???

i allow jheriko to answer the phone. i let him talk to the telemarketers. i don't even try to get the phone from him. i figure if it was really that important, they would ask to speak to me. it's kinda funny to hear jher ask them how they are. he then carries on a conversation that i am sure they can't follow. i just sit back and smile! BAD MOM!

coUsin t ANsY

so yesterday, jheriko and i were on post. he kept looking at this girl (she looked to be about ten.) he asked me, "what she doing?" i told him i did not know. he asked if he could go see. he went over to her and asked, "how yer doing?" she just kinda smiled and shrugged her shoulders. jheriko came running back to me with a HUGE smile on his face, and said, "cousin tansy!" you know, she kinda did look like tansy.

What is your favorite comfort food, and what is your strongest memory tied to it?

as you probably know already...i like food. i love anything that is made with pasta, meat and tomato sauce. i can eat that anytime, especially if i am needing a little extra "love." i don't really have any memories tied to it.

i do LOVE vanilla ice cream. i do remember in japan, mom, peggy and lani always got to eat the chocolate. mike and dad ate the strawberry. i felt sorry for the vanilla. and because only i ate it...i got alot-or at least i didn't have to share.

What is your love story, how did you and your husband meet?

demarko and i met in texas. i was living about 30 miles from work and getting fed up with the commute. during christmas break, i moved a little closer to work. that sunday, in my new ward, i saw demarko. i thought he was kinda cute. we had insitiute or fhe or something. then the next week, it was cancelled. i got a call from demarko. he said he was calling everyone up to see how they were. later, i found out he only called me. by mid february, i couldn't get rid of him. he even came to school to bring me a valentine's present. i don't know. i think that is about it. i am glad we are married. i think sometimes he doesn't know what to do with me.

What are 10 things you are grateful for?


1.temples. i am grateful that demarko and i can be together forever.

2.adoption. i am thankful to beable to have jheriko. i love my little son-more each day.

3.books. i love to read and to be able to escape into another life-even for just a moment.

4.telephones. how great are they?

5.sunshine. i love feeling the sun on my face. i am even more grateful after living here. the few days of sunshine-nothing beats those after all the rain.

6.parks. i love going to the park with jheriko when the sun is out. all that fresh air is wonderful. i love looking at pictures and remembering the past.

8.sight. i have always thought it would be horrible to be blind. i love seeing things in nature. i could not imagine not being able to see how jheriko changes.

9.demarko. kinda goes along with #1. he is good to me and for that i am thankful.

10. ok, ok, my brothers and sisters, my mom and dad. you guys are pretty great!

If you could live anywhere, where would you go?

i think if i could live anywhere, it would be in italy...if they spoke english...or if they humored me and let ME speak english. something like that. i love the weather, the weather and the weather. i also LOVE italian food. since that isn't gonna happen, i would live to live by the ocean. i love the smell of salt water.

Who is your hero? (Why?)

i don't know. i don't think i have a hero. is that bad?

ok. i got this from kate. if anyone wants to be interviewed, shoot HER an email and she will come up with some questions for you to answer. i think your suppose to send me an email, but we all know how that will turn out! gotta say, this was kinda fun, when i had a moment to sit at the computer without jheriko. i did try to answer the questions honestly. really.

here is jheriko with no hair. yes...i am VERY sad. i can't wait for it to grow back! jheriko is excited because he now has hair like his daddy. if you don't know, jher started shaving his hair. he shaved TOO much, so demarko had to finish the job.

things i need...

so, i did this on facebook, but because i haven't posted in 5weeks...5weeks! i will do it here! what you do, is go to google, put yourname and needs...for example, i put in "jill needs" and hit enter. you all can do it. it is kinda fun. by the way kate, i am working on the interview thing...really!

jill needs to earn enough money to buy a new skateboard that costs $48.50.
jill needs you
miss jill needs to go out
jill needs to move someplace that doesn't necessiate wearing socks half the year
jill needs help!
jill needs a session on "what not to wear"
jill needs horror
jill needs to stop loking
jill needs a jack
jill needs a roommate

i said it on facebook, and i will say it again...i will not be upset if someone put my name in at "what not to wear." i will act surprised that my style isn't flattering nor stylish.

there you go. a blog. i am no longer 5 weeks without blogging.

on another note, jheriko is turning out to be quite a soccer player. he is very good-can kick with either leg and almost sometimes kicks the ball to the correct goal. gotta love that little boy!
