I was tagged.....

Life always gets in the way of fun! I completely forgot that my buddy Marlene tagged me a few days ago and that I was supposed to tag 6 other people and write 6 random facts about myself. Oops. Sorry Marlooney!!!!

Well......since I don't think 6 people even read my blog (a big HELLO to the 2 of you out there who do frequent me here), I figured I would just make this an open tag for anyone interested and ask whomever stumbles upon this to post 6 random facts about themselves in my comments section. I would *love* to learn more about all of you!!!! goes my 6 random facts:

1. I was once paralyzed from the waist down for an entire day.
2. I joined the Air Force when I was 17 years old and I made marksman on the machine gun while in basic training. (And I have a ribbon on my uniform to proove it!)
3. I cannot eat throat lozenges. They make me gag and want to throw up. If I smell a throat lozenge that someone else is eating, I turn and run the opposite direction.
4. I am hypoglycemic (bad) and am considered 10% disabled by the military because of it.
5. When I was in high school I got MVP of the girls swim team the first (and only) year that I swam.
6. I have a crazy strong pinky toe that I have complete control over. I can pick things up with it and pinch people with it if they get on my nerves.

So...there you have it. My 6 random facts. I will leave you with a couple of recent pics of my 2 crazy kiddo's......

Oh. My. Gosh. That picture of Steph is HYSTERICAL... and I can't decide which is funnier... her face or Jen's expression in response to it! I just want to squeeze them. How do you refrain?

Okay... I did this on Sarah's blog but I'll try to come up with some other facts about me you may not know...

1. I was Editor-In-Chief of my high school yearbook. It taught me some life lessons that I still carry to this day.

2. Growing up, none of my brothers, sisters or I liked cereal very much. Pretty much the only kind we liked was Rice Krispies but we only at it with orange juice rather than milk. It's tasty!

3. I still have my roller skating key (anyone remember those?) from my roller skates when I was little.

4. I've never been stung by a bee.

5. I won 1st place in a pumpkin decorating contest at a bank when I was in 5th grade. The prize was a 3-speed bike.

6. I wanted to be a librarian or a school teacher when I was growing up. I became neither but still have strong feelings (and admiration) about both professions.

7. I was considered legally blind (20/800) prior to my eye surgery 7 years ago. My son is currently considered legally blind (20/400) without glasses. He didn't come from a good eye gene-pool! :o( Wish I could change that!

8. My favorite zoo animals are giraffes.

Oh, Andrea....that first picture is adorable, and that second one is priceless!!! LOL!!!

I gotta admit I cracked up reading about your baby toe. I can't say I know ANYONE with that talent!

Thanks for playing! Now Rachael is the only one who hasn't! Hrrrmphff!

Colleen.....I do remember the roller skating keys! I think you're the first (adult) person I've ever met that's never been stung by a bee! You may have crappy eye genes, but you've got great bee avoidance skills! ;)

I read your blog! So that makes three already! But Marlene already tagged me. :)

The girls are gorgeous and I have to agree with Colleen, I am not sure which is funnier....Steph's face or Jenn looking at it as if she is taking notes for later!
