7 Random Things About Me

7 Random Things about ME…

Are you sure you want to know?

1. When I was about 5 years old, I got ran over by a UPS truck and was put in a bodycast. I don’t remember a lot of it, but some of it, like riding to the hospital in my neighbors yellow car, and being put in a chair by my dad, strapped in with bungee cords so I could eat dinner… I sure hope my kids don’t have to go through this.

2. I married Mark when I was 19 years old, and thought that was pretty young, until my Grandma told me she got married when she was 16, and her mom was more than happy about it! Imagine that! She wins.

3. I love art, I was studying fine arts in college and married Mark after only 2 semesters of college. So, now my art is making quilts and such.

4. I have lived in a lot of states: Oregon (now), Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and my dad says I lived in Texas when I was a baby, but I don’t remember that one. This means I love to travel and meet new people, moving around a lot has really helped me be able to adapt easily in many situations.

5. I have a temper, I know, I seem so sweet *bats eyes*. It is my “thing” in life that I am constantly working on. I try so hard to behave, but sometimes, I slip up. We all have something we need to work on right?

6. I don’t turn off. From the time I wake up to the time I go to bed, I have to be doing something. I don’t like to waste time. And sometimes I really wish I could shut off and relax for once.

7. Um, let me see… I’ll be turning 29 next week, which means that I will be almost 30. (sorry, can’t think of anymore LOL!)

Who wants to be tagged? Well, I’ll tag those who visit often, so they’d better post! Lurline, Vonna, Marie P., Brigitte, & Natasha & Loraine.

What a fun game to play! How terrible for you about the UPS truck!

I meant to ask you about your quilts. Do you machine or hand quilt or send them out?

Happy birthday for this week. You didn't specify the day. I hope you have as good a day as I had for my b'day last week. Let me reassure you that turning 30 doesn't hurt. Neither does turning 40. Neither does ... well let's not scare you too much. I got married when I was 19. No one said a word about age. My sisters married much later, and my parents fussed at their daughers' ages. I didn't plan to meet someone when I did, but I'm sure glad we had the time together. He's still a great love and a dear, dear friend after all these years.

No wonder that you are so creative and have such a good sense for colours, see #3.
Happy Birthday to you, Heather. You are just as old as my youngest son, lol.
You tagged me with this fun game, so I'll post about it soon.
