Babette's Book Blog awarded me the Honest Scrap, which asks me to post 10 honest things about myself.
- Kiddo got 6 stitches in his head last week ... and it was my fault. We were wrestling on my bed and when he grabbed my legs I slammed them down onto the mattress ... or so I thought. He was hanging on and laughing until his head slammed into the corner of the bed frame. I still feel horrible!
- I do very well in emergency situations (like #1). I don't panic and I can think clearly and organize whatever needs to be done.
- I'm the Den Leader for Kiddo's Cub Scout Den. I love doing this but I can't stand the uniform I have to wear - I look like a complete nerd. LOL
- I play Farmville ... a lot. If you are my friend on Facebook and you haven't learned how to hide the Farmville posts I probably drive you crazy. Just ask me and I'll tell you how to get rid of those posts.
- I love jewelry that coordinates with what I'm wearing. It doesn't have to be expensive jewelry, and I don't care about other kinds of fashion, but I really do love jewelry.
- My birthday is coming up in just a few weeks.
- I like public speaking. I still get nervous before getting in front of large crowds, but I genuinely enjoy the experience as a whole.
- My mom is the only person who has ever cut my hair. She is a stylist and I trust her completely. Only once has she ever done something that I didn't like, and it was a style that I thought I wanted.
- There is a mouse living under the stove in my kitchen. I need to get rid of it but I feel bad setting a trap for it.
- I feel so blessed to still have one set of grandparents. They are now 86 and 92 and not in the best of health, so I treasure the time I have with them. I love that Kiddo is getting to know his great-grandparents as "people" not just as "old people," if you know what I mean.
Miss Remmers' Review and eclectic/eccentric both gave me the Xxtraordinary Blogger Award, meaning I have to share one extraordinary thing that has happened to me.
When I was (I think) in middle school my family took a trip to the Statue of Liberty. We had a great time and took lots of pictures. After we left we realized we had somehow left behind a backpack with our sweaters and camera inside. When we got back to Maryland my mom wrote a letter to the lost and found at the Statue of Liberty describing the backpack and its contents. We figured that was the end of the story, but about 6 months later a box arrived from New York - with all our items inside! It was so amazing to realize that nothing had been stolen, and it was a real treat to develop the film in the camera and relive the trip all those months later.
I appreciate all my readers and would love to learn more about you! Feel free to grab the buttons and post 10 honest things or 1 extraordinary thing (or both) on your blog.
