Tagged .....

You are in for it now as I have been tagged by my fabulous blogging friend Sheryl over at Peanut Butter and Jelly Boats. The name of the game is to share with you, six random things about myself. So here we go:

  1. I have small feet. Not as in lily feet but close. I am 5 foot 11 inches and only have size 8 feet. This is likely the cause for my natural penchant for being a klutz as well as the numerous injuries to my lower extremities such as ankles and knees. Feet are needed for balance and well, I don't have much of it.
  2. The thought of roughing it outdoors as in camping in a tent makes me nauseous. I am convinced that I am the main course for some lucky cougar out in the woods, and I would likely be the easiest meal in that cougar's life as I would pass out cold if I came eye to eye with it. I can't run fast either due to #1 above, therefore, you might as well strike hiking off the list too.
  3. I turned 36 at the beginning of July, an age that I never thought that I would make it to. I never foresaw my future much past my late twenties and never envisioned having a family either. Now I have made it to 36 and have a family so I must be doing something right. It is tough some days because my dad died suddenly at this age so you can't help but be reminded just how young he was and that he had so much living yet to do.
  4. I married the best man in the world for me. Words just can not describe how solid we are after almost 16 years together. Never has there been a point over the years for regret or second thoughts and we continue to grow on this journey even more so ... if that is possible. By the time I reach 40, I will have spent half of my life with this man.
  5. I am a rock star in my own mind. Actually, not a rock star but a hip hop/R&B/80's star wanna be. In my mind, I can do all of the dance moves just like the pros and have the voice of an angel. In reality, I have no rhythm and can make the crankiest of alley cats howl upon hearing my crooning. Having said that, I just played Rock Band for the first time ever a couple of weeks ago and got 97% in vocals for Bon Jovi's, Wanted Dead or Alive and I have finally graduated to the Basic Level of Dance Dance Revolution.
  6. I can't get enough hugs, kisses and I Love You's in a day with my children. I am the clingy one with them and can be found grabbing them at any given opportunity. My biggest fear in life is that my children will never know how much I truly love them and how much they mean to me.

With all of that insight I just gave you, I am just itching to learn a few more things about others. I am now supposed to tag six other lucky people. So ... the winners are:

Ellen at Goofballs World

Andrea at The Laughs Will Go On

Ellen at Baiers On The Move

Beth at Total Mom Haircut

Sari at The Geek Inside

Mike at Something About Parenting

I'm a huggy and kissy mom all day, too. It's the best. And no camping for me- mainly because I find it SO uncomfortable and unnecessary? : )

I haven't tried dance dance revolution yet but I'd LOVE to play with you on Rock Band. I'm with you on camping- a big NO THANKS. My older ones run and hide when I come with the hugs and kisses!

Thanks for playing!
