Tagged

I have been tagged by http://heretomaternity.wordpress.com/ to come up with seven things about me you don't know. I think I am pretty much an open book but I will try: 1) I have absolutely no artistic talent. NONE. I know people often say that while they are showing you their wonderful creations, but I truly can't even draw a straight line. 2) I am chronologically older than I feel. Some days I am truly surprised when I look in the mirror and see who is looking back. She is old. 3) I like to be alone. I love my family but there are many times where I am so overwhelmed by their loudness and needs that I secretly wish I could have a week with the house all to myself with the animals. (For the record my family includes 3 teen aged boys and a husband-I am not sure if it would be different with daughters...maybe they are less needy and quieter??) 4) I am a terrific bargain shopper, though I hate to shop. If I can't get it online or at my friendly neighborhood tar*et then, I probably won't buy it. I think EB$Y was invented for me. 5) I like to drive fast. I would love to get behind the wheel of a race car on a track and let loose! 6) I am very afraid of heights. In some weird way, I feel like I don't trust myself, that I would let myself jump or something. I am also terrified of snakes, especially small ones. The huge 10' pythons don't scare me as much as a garden snake. It literally sends me hyperventilating, at a dead run, to get away. 7) I hate cleaning and wish I could afford a cleaning lady to come in for about an hour each day, just to help me keep up. Now if you have read this, it is only fair that you pony up on your blog and tell me 7 things about you..c'mon, let 'er rip!

I am with you on everything but 2 and 4 and I wouldn't jump because I am too scared and not afraid of snakes well unless doubt if poisonous.

I am either your age or older I am guessing and I know what you mean but I refuse to say I am old. Power in words and I don't want my body to get any ideas...I'm just sayin. ;)

Ohn...I haven't said this too anyone and so I am going to VENT! Now...I do feel guilty about this BUT...i was so used to having the house to myself because kids were in school all day and husband worked a lot.

This year...son is in community college and is home until 1pm and they cut husbands overtime (we miss that) and so he is usually home by 3 and he is also taking a lot more days off because he can. I am happy for him in that he worked hard all his life and has time to take because he didn't take it but opted to save it so he could work OT. Ohn...what is wrong with me. I feel like I can't focus and get my stuff done and I haven't gone back to work yet...so I have all the time in the world. I feel like I am totally thrown off track every day! maybe I need to get a quality pair of head phones and blinders! ;)

If I could just have ONE whole day to myself...

I love them with all my heart...just need some space and quiet to focus.

Hope you don't mind that I vented. Haven't even said this to my real life friends. :)

Very interesting! I like to be alone too. Maybe that's why blogging is such a relief for me. It's like being alone with quiet company.

I don't think you can tag everyone reading your blog can you? I thought you had to tag specific people, no?
