Crazy Eight Maids-a-Milking?

Well I've been tagged 3 times for what I think is the same meme, just by two different names...

Let me explain. I was tagged by both Kellie and Jodi for the 'Crazy Eights' tag and also by Jennifer for the '8 Maids-a-Milking Meme'. When I compared them, they were asking pretty much the same questions, just in two slightly different ways. So I'm going to combine them and therefore bring you my version, dubbed the 'Crazy Eight Maids-a-Milking' meme tag. Ok? :)

8 Things I’m Passionate About:
* My family
* My friends

* GIS

7 Things I Want To Do Before I Die:
* See my kids grow up and live happy lives.
* Move into a bigger house or add on to ours.
* Visit Great Britain and Hawaii.
* Take a cruise.
* Lose weight and live a healthier life.
* Get on a comfortable financial footing, preferably completely debt-free.
* Play with my grandchildren often.

6 Things That I Say Often:
* "I love you"
* "Please talk quietly!"
* "Just a minute"

* A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon (have started about 6 times over the past year and although I love her books, I can't seem to bring myself to read this one yet)
* F is for Fugitive by Sue Grafton (have been re-reading the entire series but am stuck since our library doesn't carry G is for Gumshoe so I have to wait for it...)
* Does reading 'Dora's Counting Book' over and over 3,245 times count? :)

* Kindness
* Honesty
* Support

2 Things That I Learned Last Year:
