Tag………You’re it!

April 25, 2009 tag 6


Aren’t you excited…we’re playing a game! Pam from Pam’s Perspective tagged me. I am to share 13 things about myself, that you probably don’t know, then tag 3 other bloggers for the fun. Ready or not, here we go…..

1. I’m the youngest of 4 children and the older 3 still call me spoiled, please people I am now 49 years old.

2. I was born in Texas and still cling close to those roots, but I only lived there the first 5 years of my life. Most of my family is still in Texas now.

3. I always wanted to be a writer, it was my childhood dream and I was a Pre-Journalism Major in college, and then got nervous, and changed to business.

4. I’ve never lived in a house that wasn’t brand new, my parents never bought a house that was previously owned and our home was new too, but it was suppose to be our starter house, not too big and we are still here 16 years later.

5. I hate mayonnaise………I don’t even like the look or smell of it.

6. I’ve shared this with Facebook and most friends, but I have new blogging friends so…… I had trouble conceiving and my twins were conceived with chlomid and an intrauterine insemination………it was the best thing ever!

7. We tried 3 more times when we wanted a 3rd child, and gave up, and then miraculously we had Nick.

8. My husband is 6 years younger than me.

9. I’ve been on every diet imaginable and my weight is a constant source of disappointment to me, but I’m unmotivated at this point in my life, I just try to be healthy.

10. I’ve been to all 48 continnental United States. We took family vacations each summer, many in a pop up camper and my parents made this a goal for all 4 of their children, I think they succeeded.

11. The only other countries I’ve visited are Canada and Mexico, and I don’t have a passport.

12. I’m afraid of heights.

13. I am a list maker and it if I go off without one, it’s a sure bet I’ll forget to buy or do something.

Now to tag 3 bloggers:

Janel at Dandelion Dayz

Ali at Home of the Lazy Dog

Margaret at Happy to be from Iowa

I understand if you don’t want to play, but you can be sure I’ll be reading to see!!!

    Yay! You decided to play!

    I’m a confirmed list maker too and I panic if I leave one behind or misplace it while I’m out and about running errands.

    Hey girl. Don’t look now, but guess who’s a writer afterall!

    You have a younger husband?! You Go Girl!

  2. Alex the Girl

    Awesome Blossom. I could steal quite a few of your answers. My husband is 8 and 1/2 years younger than I am. I fear heights to the utmost. We tried forever for number 3 and then when we stopped, she came bouncing along.

    Oh, and I’m originally from Texas, but I wish I hated Mayo

    I’ve been to 47 of the contiguous states – also grew up camping. I am missing Oklahoma and now have an almost irresistible desire – no – NEED to go there.

    My weight isn’t going anywhere, either. I’ve also tried everything but surgery. I have come to believe that we are what we are (I always believe that, but some days I accept it more readily than others…)I try to eat reasonably well and exercise a reasonable amount. I am not willing to try to kill myself to fit into an unreasonable societal expectation. Pfft.

    Cool getting to know you better!

    How fun to read all kinds of new things about you Anita! I am so impressed that you have been to 48 states!!!! Which two are you missing? I think you’re the best my blogger friend! 🙂

  5. Miss Healthypants

    I am the youngest of 8 kids…so imagine how much I’ve been called “spoiled” in my lifetime! *grin*

    Also, I LOVE mayonnaise…but like you, I am also afraid of heights. (I have no idea why I live on the 21st floor of a high-rise! *smiles*)
