25 Random Things About Me

Since I've already done this on Facebook, and then inadvertently erased it, I thought I would do it as a blog. My blog is imported to Facebook, so that way I sorta kill two birds with one stone. I'm not going to "tag" anyone here, but I will over there. If you read it and feel like doing it, go ahead. Just leave me a comment to let me know, so I can go read yours too.


Rules: once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

  1. I'm the 5th of 10 children in my family, and growing up, I didn't look like any of the others.
  2. I was accidentally kidnapped when I was 4 days old, while asleep in the car that someone decided to take a joy ride in.
  3. When I was 5 years old, I had a pet chicken named Henrietta.
  4. My cousin Bonnie and I were born on the same day in the same hospital, and often pretended we were twins. We celebrated a big birthday last June.
  5. My sister Kathy was born on our 11th birthday. This year she gets to celebrate a big birthday.
  6. My favorite color is blue.
  7. I collect frogs, (not real ones), dolls and dust.
  8. My husband and I met on an online Christian dating forum.
  9. Between us we have 7 children, ranging in age from 12 to almost 30.
  10. The 12 year old and the almost 30 year old are both mine.
  11. I'm working on losing around 100 pounds. I'm a little over a third of the way there.
  12. To say that I am NOT a sports fan is the understatement of the year. If you talk sports to me, it turns off a switch in my brain and I won't hear another thing more you are saying.
  13. I ran off with the carnival when I was 18 or 19, but only for about six weeks or so.
  14. In 2002, I underwent open-heart surgery in May and had a hysterectomy in October.
  15. I've been a blogger since April of last year. It's a great creative outlet, and also comes in handy when I want to brag about my grandkids, or vent about how stupid McDonald's is.
  16. We have 3 of the cutest grandsons in the whole wide world.
  17. All of my kids are now taller than I am. Even my 12 year old daughter.
  18. All of my step-children are married, but none of my own children currently are. Not even the 12 year old.
  19. My bestest friends are all quite a bit younger than I am, so they refer to me as "the token old lady".
  20. I don't really like surprises. Perhaps it's a control issue?
  21. I drink way too much coffee, in fact I'm drinking some now and it's almost midnight.
  22. I really hate cold and snow and ice, but I was born in MN and my family is here...so here I am, and here I shall stay.
  23. I come from a singing family and love to sing. I especially like to use my voice to sing praise to my Lord.
  24. Speaking of 24, I hate that show...and my husband is watching it even as I type this.
  25. I lost my younger sister to breast cancer almost 6 years ago, and I miss very much.

Great list! You may be our Token Old Lady, but we don't keep you around to make us feel young. You are super important to us all.
