I was tagged by CindyLu! Here are my responses:

Seven things I hope to do before I am here no longer:
1) Take a real vacation: Somewhere far away, for at least a week – no budget, no worries.
2) Take salsa lessons.
3) Go to an Andrea Bocelli Concert and a BB King concert. (separate concerts though - not together!)
4) Live outside of the U.S. for a while (Panama maybe? ) – preferably a Spanish speaking country.
5) Get a Master’s Degree in Education – Either in reading or curriculum.

7) Find a soulmate

Seven things I can do:

7) Be open minded

Seven things I can’t do:

2) Balance my checkbook – This I know I am capable of just can’t seem to do it!
3) Fold clothes immediately after they come out of the dryer.
4) Accept compliments

6) ¡Ay ...mujer, por favor!
7) Girl ... PULEASE!!! (The English version of #6)

Seven people to play this little game:

Kelly, it is funny to me that you do not fold your clothes right after they come out of the drier. I am totally the oposite: if they are not warm, I won't fold them. Unless, of course, that they were air dried that is very common in Panama during summer time :)

I also love "como agua para chocolate!"
Hugs,
