As I was unloading the dishwasher my thoughts suddenly turned to Josh & Jen Carter. You may be wondering why I would think of this family while doing something as ordinary and boring as emptying the dishwasher so let me tell me why...We spent many nights at the Carter home having dinner and usually when we were all done Josh would do the dishes. And when Josh is loads the dishwasher he separates all the utensils into their individual categories. Spoons all go in one bin, forks in another, and so on and so forth. Now the utensils just aren't gathered up and thrown in the bin but he turns them so they are all going the same direction. Some of you may be thinking this is a little extreme, and I have to admit I initially thought that myself but try it once and you will discover that it makes unloading the silverware MUCH easier. Thank you Josh Carter.
So that got me thinking...this happens to me a lot. I will watch something, eat something, or hear a certain song I remember someone. A friend, a person who means something to me, a person I haven't seen in a while and miss having in my life. So without further ado....here are some of my favorite memories. I would love it if you posted one of yours and it does NOT have to be a memory that includes me.
Clark & Emily Scharman...Chinese food, root beer, and Survivor.
Dick and Joyce Ekstrand...Chocolate, Baskin Robbins, Red Hot & Blue, and missionary sandwich hugs.
Lexi Magnusson...I can't drink a Mountain Dew or eat a chocolate Whopper (you know I had to specify otherwise you would think we hit up the burger king frequently) without thinking of her fondly.
Heather James...Nachos, ladies nights, prom dresses & police cars, and diet coke with lime.
Andria Laws...Every time I sweep the floor I giggle to myself. If you want to know just ask her about the time she got frustrated and went for the broom.
Nicole Kunzler...Wendy's Frosties.
Sherri Marks...Take 5 candy bars. Because of her I am now addicted. Or was that Heather's favorite. I just remember going to the mall with those two girls and being introduced to them. Now I am hooked.
Bernice Tooley....gallon jugs of milk. LOVE it and her!
Susan Forsgren....two words....SECURITY OFFICERS.
Jessica Washburn...Lime Cheesecake, and other yummy treats.
Laura Vanderbeek - Bike rides, walks in the rain, and Amish delights.
Oh I could go on and on...to those that I forgot...it wasn't that I forgot but this post can only be so long.
PLEASE tell me some of your memories of some of your favorite people...NOT including ME!
