welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

like being on the playground

isn't that where we played tag? that's where *i* played tag, but that was more than 40 years ago. do kids even play tag anymore? i'm not sure. if they don't, they're missing a great game, or they're not being allowed to play a great game.

anyway, all that to say that i stopped by Nicole Zoltac's blog and she tagged me with another blogger question thing to answer. this one sounded fun, so here goes. i'm supposed to tag 8 other people, but i'll do what she did-- if you read this, you're tagged. just let me know if you decide to play along.

1. If you could have a superpower, what would you have? Why?
--endless amounts of energy. think of all the things i could get done.

2. Who is your style icon?
--i don't have one. i am who i am. but i'd call my own style casual. i dress up only when i have to.

3. What is your favorite quote?
-- i have two:

"Well-behaved women rarely make history." - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that because what the world needs is people who are alive." - Howard Thurmond.

4. What is the best compliment you've ever received?
-- i have two for that as well: that my children are a delight to be with, and that people can't put my novel down.

5. What playlist/cd is on your ipod/cd player right now?
-- i have lots of playlists. my favorite is probably the one called "Alive" - songs that make me think of the quote above about being alive.

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
--middle of the day- i'm more productive as the day goes on, but at about 6, i start to peter out. i'm usually in bed by 10.

7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
--both. we have dogs and they're nice to have around, though a pain sometimes. i'd like to have a cat, but until i move, i have to settle for petting the cat from next door.

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
-- beautiful chaos - my life is chaotic, but God can bring beauty out of anything.

I like #8 and agree with the need for energy.
As far as tagging... I was never here!

Boundless energy... that's what I need. Chasing two little ones around the house all day leaves me too exhausted to write. And I love the quotes you picked.

Boundless energy would be an awesome superpower!

Great quotes and compliments! :)

I like these things, so I'll play along some time this coming week. I'll have to search around for a few good quotes though. None come to mind immediately.

wouldn't endless energy be nice? i'd love it purely for school :)
also about ten years ago when i was a kid we did still play tag :)
i will probably fill out the questions later this week once my essays for school are written :)
