My friend, Maree, at the blog, At Home tagged me for 7 Random Things About Me. She is such a sweet person and has been very inspiring to me in many ways. Hop over and visit her. I hope this list doesn't bore you too much. If I have repeated myself from another time I am sorry. I have too much information in my brain and the older I get it just keeps filling up more and more and it's harder to retrieve information. Perhaps some of you can relate. Anyway, here goes.
1)I took 2 years of typing in high school. My mother drilled it into me..."If you know how to type you will always be able to get a job." She was right. Why didn't I listen to her when she said, "You can love a rich man just as easy as a poor man".
2)I have obsessed about my weight since the sixties. As an adult I have been a size 8 and since I share so much with my bloggy friends, I am currently a size 24. I have been up and down so many times. Yes, I'm tall 5'9, but at this weight, HELLO, I would need to be about 8' tall. As of last week I have been making better choices. Please hold me up in prayer about this temptation.
3)I love books. I worked in the public library in high school and I love to hang out in book stores. I love magazines and books. Hence, my multiple translations of the Bible, my favorite book.
4)I have absolutely loved purses/handbags since I was a tiny little girl. For some women they are just a necessity--to me they have always made me feel happy. I know....coo coo
5)I love the game Trivial Pursuit.
6) When I was a little girl I thought the words to a church song said, "Give me oil in my lamb keep me burning. Give me oil in my lamb I pray." I just could not figure out why you had to put oil in a lamb. It took me a while to figure out it was "lamp". Maybe because I didn't grow up with oil in lamps. Anywho...I felt goofy when I realized the true lyrics. See I share so much with you.
7)I got to watch my granddaughter, Avery, being born. Needless to say, that was one of the most exciting times of my life. She is a sweet girl and not just because I'm her Nana. I was so tired when I gave birth to my daughter I was truly goofy. 41 hours of labor. Tons of fun.
Now I tag the following:
1) Stevie Wren at A Little Bird told me so
2)Judy at My Front Porch
3)Indian Papa and Mama at Choices R Mine
