7 Facts

I've been tagged. Not once. Not twice. Three times! It seems that Gretchen. Vivian and Mary all want to learn more about me. Go figure.
So I'm sitting here trying to think of 7 things about me that people might find interesting. Hopefully I'm up to the challenge!
  1. I am married to my first and only love. I met David in 1982 and have been in love with him ever since even though we broke up for a few years before getting back together permanently in 1986.
  2. I love my jobs. Truly. During the week I work at a bank (how boring!) where I get to help people with whatever their needs. I also act as the office liaison - purchasing for the office, keeping the peace, reminding everyone that if they don't like what they're doing they should find something else 'cause it ain't worth it to be unhappy for 40 - 50 hours a week for years. I really believe that. On Sundays I teach 1st grade at a synagogue. I really love interacting with the children. OTOH, I really hate the politics at both jobs. Gee. That's a surprise.
  3. I love scrapbooking even though I'm one of the least creative people you'll ever meet. I started about 2 years ago with the encouragement of a very dear friend. I now have tons of scrapbooking supplies but no dining room table.
  4. Years ago I snored myself awake. Yup. You heard it here. I used to always complain to David that he was keeping me awake with his snoring. One night I woke up & yelled at him to stop snoring when he looked at me in that way that only a man can have & said "Honey, I'm reading. See my book? You snored yourself awake." Oops. He's never going to let me live that one down. (I can't really blame him though.)
  5. I'm very flexible. Even at my weight. I can stand up straight, bend over & touch my hands to the floor. Flat. Without any problems. It ooks people out. And Erin is even more flexible than I am.
  6. Like my friend Lori, I absolutely can't make a go of my day without my morning coke. David brings me a can of coke every morning so that I can get out of bed. And when I get to the office, I drop my stuff down & go make the pot of heavily caffeinated coffee so that I can become human. The joke in my office is that if you want Tammie to know something, wait till she's had her first sip of coffee 'cause it won't stick without the coffee. I can drink regular coffee & fall asleep in minutes. I drink so much caffeine that I never have a problem.
  7. I love to read books. I absolutely love to read romance, mystery, true crime but can't stand reading science fiction or fantasy even though I love to watch it.

There you go. I don't know if it's interesting stuff, but there it is. And now I have to tag 7 other people. Yikes!

  1. Sandra - Are we ever going to meet in person?
  2. Shari - I know you're busy right now, but Halloween is almost here so you'll have more time eventually.
  3. Grace - You may be new to blogging but I love what you have to say.
  4. Magi - I have loved reading all about your sweet girl. Now it's time to read about you!
  5. Kim - I can't wait to see what you have to say!
  6. Candy - Your turn! Now we get to know you!
  7. Sandy - It's not like you're busy or anything, but if you get a chance, we'd love to know more!

Have fun everyone!

Your snoring comment CRACKS me up! We have snoring issues in our family....but it's not me, I swear!

Life with JJ, Starr and Spice said...

I love the snoring fact as well. One thing that you should have mentioned is that you are an awesome friend and one of the most supportive women I know.

OMG, snoring is hysterical! And scrapping... well I'm glad I could encourage you to not have a dining room table wither! Coffee at work... so funny, and when I worked out in the real world I was the same, lol. Large coke on the way to work and a big coffee when I got in. Gee, we are more alike sometimes than we even realize!

Soooo busted on the snoring!! HA!! Funny, funny!

I love to scrapbook too and am like you, not really very creative! I lost my table a while ago, but then found it when I moved.

I will help you find your table when I come visit, LOL!

Erin is just beautiful. Hubby is totally enamored with you it must be the Tootsie Roll, Lobster Bisque connection that you share.
A year is to long so we will make a point of crashing the next party.

I need some scrapping lessons, maybe we could use that premise and get together one day soon.

I envy your flexability.... I bend over and wave to the floor! LOL
