And In Other News....

Today Eugene and I invited my parents down for lunch. Their 47th anniversary is on Tuesday, so we wanted to celebrate. We also wanted to show them our album and give them their pictures. The lunch menu was salad, homemade wheat and honey rolls, pork chops with bread-and-spinach stuffing, additional stuffing baked on the side, wild rice, spinach sauteed with pine nuts and raisins, and fruit tarts for dessert. (We cheated with the fruit tarts and bought them from Jewel.) It was good having them over, even if Mom told Eugene too many stories about what I was like when I was younger. I guess moms like to do that.

We had a tango class again tonight. We didn't do as much dancing as we did last time, as we learned more decorations to the steps we've already learned. There's a possibility that our instructors will have yet another level for our class, but it's up in the air at the moment. It would be nice to have the practice, especially since we're only now beginning to talk more with our classmates. We might try going in a group to a dance club sometime. It would be more fun (and less embarrassing) to have other beginners to practice with.

Finally, I'm going to try posting that Personal DNA map again, since mine is different from what my friends have been getting.

You are an Analyst

Your attention to detail, confidence, sense of order, and focus on functionality combine to make you an ANALYST.

You are very curious about how things work, delving into the mechanics behind things.

Along those lines, how well something works is usually more important to you than what it looks like.

You find beauty and wonder mainly in concrete, functional, earthly things.

You are very aware of your own abilities, and you believe that you will find the best way of doing things.

Accordingly, problems do not intimidate you, as you believe in yourself.

You trust yourself to find solutions within the boundaries of your knowledge.

You don't spend a lot of time imagining how things could be different—you're well-grounded in the here-and-now.

It is important for you to follow a routine, and you prefer the familiar to the unknown.

Your independent streak allows you to make decisions efficiently and to trust your instincts

You are balanced in your approach to problem-solving, not letting your emotions hold you up.

You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.

Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

You are Faithful

Your trust in others, respect for tradition, and caring nature make you FAITHFUL.

Maintaining a few intimate relationships is more important to you than knowing a lot of people, and you share a lot with your close friends.

Those who have managed to get close to you value your camaraderie, and they know that they can trust you with anything; you're a good listener.

While you can usually see several sides of an argument, you often have a strong opinion as to which side is correct—the order of things is usually clear to you.

Your perspective on the world is based on careful observation, and you know a lot about how people feel in—and react to—many situations.

Your exploration of others' feelings has led you to believe that although people generally act appropriately, having clear social rules is very important to a functional society.

Time alone for reflection is important to you—you are introspective and aware of your own feelings.

Faithful is as faithful does—you expect those with whom you are close to be loyal to you, and you take betrayal of your trust very seriously.

Sara, please give your parents my warmest best wishes on their 47th wedding anniversary. Now, that is what I call LOVE ;) They have my deepest admiration. My parents would have been married 48 years this April. My mom passed away 6 years ago and they were very happily married up until the very end.
