6 Random Things about Myself....

My beary dear friend Chrissi of CatherWoods has taggeed me. I'm to list 6 random things about myself. Hmm.... most of you who read my blog already know me pretty good so I've got to come up with some really unique things......hmmm.....ummmm....hmmmm.....

#1 When I was about 8 I wanted glasses so pretended I couldn't see the chalkboard at school.... mom carted me off to the eye doctor who said I wouldn't need glasses until I was 40! Well, I'm almost 39 and although I'm finding my arms could stand to be a few inches longer when reading I'm still glasses-free!!! My opthamologist gave me an RX for glasses last year, I filled it, wore those things for about 3 days, felt like I had tunnel vision and took 'em back!!! It's going to be a major adjustment when I really, really have to wear them or be blind but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

#2 I've worked more than 30 different jobs in the last 24 years. But I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up!! Guess that's why I still play with teddy bears?

#3 I still have my roller skates from middle school when the roller rink was my second home! I can't possibly get my feet into them now nor have I in at least 25 years.... yet they've moved with me from apartment to apartment, house to house, marriage to marriage... and I won't part with them. I need help!
#4 I like my waffles with peanut butter on them... not syrup.... peanut butter.

#5 When in my early 20s I directed the children's choir at my church and assisted with the high school youth group. We also did a lot of mission work in New York City. I celebrated my 21st birthday in Jamaica..... not at a beachside bar as many who finally reached the legal drinking age would do.... but rather in the hills outside of Kingston as a missionary rebuilding a church and teaching vacation bible school to the sweetest and most eager young native children. It was an amazing experience!

#6 I dream of having a 65 Mustang.... robins egg blue.... convertible.... or perhaps an old '50 Chevy pick up... fully restored of course.... also blue....

So now I'm to tag 6 friends, and ask them to share 6 random things about themselves. So I'm tagging Melanie of Melbear's Quality Collectibles, Shantell of Apple Dumpling Designs , Catherine of Bumpkin Bears, Melanie of Bear Treasures, Marlys of Waggle Bears and Tammy of Beckoning Bears.

Ha ha and I thought my PB and J on waffle was unique! I can't eat regular old bread anymore so my wheat free waffles let me enjoy a good old PB and J now and again! Nothin' beats a warm waffle with PB melting into it...YUM! now I'm hungry again...... :)

Hi Daphne,

It was interesting to read about 6 random things about you.
I still have my old white boot roller skates, like yours.
Was so much fun wasn't it.
