My Tag Answers

I have been tagged. Here are the answers to the question...Eight random things about me...

1. Without my contacts, I am pretty much blind. I have had to wear glasses since I was 5 years old. Not just any glasses but thick, thick glasses. I daily thank Jesus for the technological advance of thin lenses!

2. I grew up on a farm. We had 75 acres of farmland, 100,000 chickens (then pheasants, then ducks), pigs, horses, cows, dogs and cats. I used to play tag with one of our pigs. It was calico and everyday after school, I would go to the barn and teach it to play tag. One day I got off the bus, went to the barn to play tag and "my" pig was gone. I was devastated but not enough not to eat it. I had my first taste of dog food on my farm. My brother and sister dared me to eat it. So I did. VERY salty is all that I remember it tasting like. Because of growing up on a farm, I have absolutely NO desire to have any pets.

3. I used to sing and play in a band with Matt Goss. He played bass drum and tuba and sang. I played flute, piccolo, and sang.

4. I LOVE to read. I read for at least and hour every night before I go to bed. My favorite type of books are fiction.

5. I make my own fabric Softener and dishwasher detergent.

6. I hate to dust and fold socks (I make the kids do it)

7. I sucked my thumb until I was 12 years old.

8. I always wear my seat belt. If I don't have it on, I feel naked.

I now tag Beautiful Grace.

I'm finally finished with the "tag post". I got a little carried away...I tend to do that.

I honestly don't know of anyone to tag. Unless, of course, Auntie MA can be persuaded to start her own blog. :)

Hey! We have a thumb-sucker here and I am so glad to know that you only did it till 12. Some days I wonder if she'll still be sucking that thumb when she leaves for college :)

Incidentally, I never knew till she was born that that is genetic! The Boss was a thumb baby apparently. Did any of your cutie pies inherit Mommy's tendency to self comfort that way? Just curious. . .
