Seven Things You Don't Want to Know

Singing Owl has tagged me for a meme.

Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged and to read your blog!

"Seven Things You Really Didn't Want To Know About Me and Because Of That You Never Thought To Ask"

1. I had the "starring" role in a jr. high play and still remember all my lines. I was the Ghost of the Christmas Clock written by my 7th grade English teacher. I was on stage the entire play...but the ghost never spoke.

2. I dropped out of nursing school, even though I was getting A's. Let me just say the world is a better place without me as a nurse.

3. I was voted quietest girl in my high school senior class. Quiet is not a word most people would use to describe me now. I'm not only loud, but every once in awhile I cuss. Not quite like a sailor, but I can put quite a sting of expletives together in rapid fire.

4. I use an insulin pump to manage diabetes. This involves inserting a fairly long cannula needle into my abdomen and attaching it to tubing and the pump. I've been asked if I had an MP3 player on my waistband. "Nope." And I gleefully offer to show them how an insulin pump works...as they flee.

5. I wannabe a runner but all I've got is stinky sneakers. I want to complete (I used to say run) a marathon before I die...and considering I can not jog to the end of my street I probably would die if I tried this soon. My short term goal is a 5K walk this year. That I can do.

6. I am not supposed to be married to Usually Darling Hubby. I found him through a personal ad and just expected him to be a rebound guy for a few dates while getting over a long, unhealthy relationship...God had other plans.

7. I require at least a full day to recover whenever I take my daughter to church. I'm not sure if this is more a reflection on my daughter's personality, my physical/mental health, or this church. Probably a mix of all three.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but leave it open for anyone to play...

I laughed when I read #6, and I think God laughed when I met my other half. Like you, no intention of staying together. Married 3 years now.

Yeah, #6 is great. I love God's sly sense of humor.

I played too.

I somehow missed this till now.

I too am smiling at number six, and I am REALLY wondering about number seven.

Thanks for playing.
