8 things about me

8 things about me

I’ve been tagged by Tanya at The Motherwear Breastfeeding Blog to tell you 8 things you don’t know about me, so here goes.

1. I spent the first 18 years of my life living in two different houses on the same street. When I was about 12 years old, my family moved from a ranch on one side of our street to a two-story house on the other side of the street. I’m not even sure we needed a moving van since everything just had to go across the street.

2. I was pre-engaged once (and even had a small diamond ring to prove it) to my first serious boyfriend. We were together for 3 1/2 years – from when I was 17 to 21. It didn’t last, and I ended up pawning the ring to buy a ring for my next boyfriend (which also didn’t last). I should’ve just kept the darn thing.

3. I took Polish dancing lessons when I was growing up. And I was darn good. :) Ask my sister. She’ll tell ya.

4. I was a Girl Scout through my senior year in high school.

5. Even though I was a Girl Scout for all of those years, to this day I’m not fond of tent camping. (Much to Jody’s dismay.)

6. During my sophomore year in college, I took court reporting classes. It seemed like relatively easy work that I could do from home (the transcribing part, not the recording part which takes place in court), and made good money. After a semester and a half, I decided that was NOT the career path for me, and it wasn’t as easy as it looked. You gotta be damn fast to be good in that business.

7. I have a horrible habit of being late. I’m sure I will be late to my own funeral.

8. I’ve always secretly wanted to be goth (or at least dress that way).

I’m tagging Heather G., Mama Saga and Melody. :) But if you aren’t Heather G., Mama Saga or Melody and haven’t done this meme yet and feel the urge, do it! Then let me know that you did so I can read more about you. :)


  1. Got your tag! It may be the end of the week, but I’ll do it. :)

  2. Loved learning more about you.
    The idea of moving across the street – one trip at a time. Good grief! I suppose easier in some ways, but – since moving is one of my least favorite trials to have to endure – sounds like prolonged agony.
    I can totally see you going goth. Really. Ever do it for Halloween? ;)
    Last – now you know we’ll all want to see pics of you doing Polish dancing. Cough it up.

  3. Hey, I used to do Irish dancing! How fun to do something cultural like that.

  4. We did the same kind of move once – we moved from a townhouse we were renting to one we bought in the samw complex. Kind of crazy, but it worked.

    ‘ve been tagged for the same meme, too – I really need to get on it.

  5. Thanks for the tag…I promise I will do it once I’ve moved! Loved learning more about you.

    I secretly was goth… ;) And I have always secretly wanted to be crunchy.

  6. Very interesting! Laughed at the moving story.

  7. Polish dancing, huh? Fun to get to know you more!

  8. My 52 year old Aunt is a goth – she’s got the dyed black hair and funky clothes. And an under 30 British boyfriend who’s in a punk rock band (and she’s quite satisfied that he’s still in England). She’s a very interesting person, to say the least – she got me into the whole UFO scene about 10 years ago.

  9. Finally, my 8 things meme will post in the morning. Sorry so late.
