Inside Stories tagged me for this blog:

5 THINGS I DO FOR MYSELF:
1. Read
2. Listen to books on cd
3. Blog
4. Watch movies every once in a while that I know my husband won't watch
5. Teach Seminary (I have to say I've held on for 4 years teaching, more for myself than for the kids, I want the knowledge that I get from it)

5 THINGS I DO FOR MY HUSBAND / CLOSE FRIENDS / CHILDREN:
1. I am my husband's personal secretary - I buy his clothes, run his errands, help with his projects, am his gopher, etc.
2. Go out to lunch every Friday with my friends.
3. Listen to my children's problems and try to help them
4. Pray for them
5. Babysit my grandkids

5 THINGS I DO FOR STRANGERS:
1. Give money to the poor via church offerings, charities, and once in a while to the person on the street.
2. Smile
3. Talk to the person in line, in the elevator, in a waiting room, etc.
4. Drive curteously
5. Help someone I see that might need it, if I am able to do so - pick up something dropped, hold the door, give directions, get something off a high shelf, etc
