8 random things about amygeekgrl

Jen at One Mom’s World tagged me to tell you 8 random facts about myself. :) Since I have accumulated some new readers lately (hi, new readers!), I thought I’d share some things that the newbies might not yet know about me, in addition to some things that might be news to the old-timers as well (hi, old-timers!). ;)

1) I had a planned home birth with my son, Julian in Nov. 2006. He was 9 1/2 lbs.

2) I am quite reserved and shy in real life until I get to know someone pretty well.

3) I’m the oldest of three kids. I have a sister who lives here in CO, and an estranged brother who lives in MI.

4) I met my husband Jody on the Internet.

5) Jody and I had our pictures taken with the Stanley Cup while we lived in Oklahoma. See? (Yes, that’s what Jody looks like with hair!)

6) I won a piece of the Berlin Wall in a contest I entered through my German class in high school.

7) I’m seriously overwhelmed and bothered by the amount of clutter in my house, but I’ve yet to do anything serious about it.

8) I’m allergic to cats, some pollen and mold.

I tried to dig up more pictures to go along with this (to make it a bit more interesting), but it just wasn’t happening. We had a long day of hiking up in Rocky Mountain National Park and I’m going to bed now. Zzzzzzzzz.

I’m tagging :
Heather at A Mama’s Blog to do when she gets back from vacation
Chelle from Crazy Thoughts by Chelle
Elizabeth at The Whole Family
and Isil at Veggie Way

I apologize if you’ve already done this meme. Just let me know by linking to your post so I can go learn more about you (or come up with 8 more random things). :)

  8. You and me and the clutter….maybe we should do a challenge or declutter for each other or something because it’s a losing battle here! I keep fantasizing about when we sell our house and I can PUT AWAY EVERYTHING so we don’t have so much junk and the house shows well….and then I wonder why I don’t just DO IT now. But that wasn’t the point of your post so I’ll quit digressing ;)

  9. Just published 8 random facts about me.

    Isil tagged me, so I guess that means I’m your tag-grand-daughter now!
