I've Been TAGGED

I've been TAGGED by Summer to blog about 6 things you may or may not know about me. And I thought she liked me.

Gee. Thanks, Summer. Then I get to tag more people. Is this the way to make friends or enemies? I guess I'll be finding out! :) (Summer, you know I am teasing you, right?) :)

Here goes...

1) I was born in Los Angeles, California and adopted. My brother is adopted too.

2) I have TWO brothers named Scott. No, it is not because I live in West Virginia. :) One is my birth half-brother and one is my adopted brother. Both are the same age, height, coloring. It's kind of weird. I'm afraid one day I'll be somewhere with the two of them and be forced to say, "Hi, this is my brother Scott, and this is my other brother Scott."

3) I am hugely competitive at playing Euchre.

4) I used to run a retail website that kept me very busy selling Boyds Bears. It's still out there hogging up cyberspace, actually.

5) Someday, I want to open our home to foster children. For obvious reasons, I always wanted to adopt a child, but there is more need in the foster world.

6) Before kids, I was a sixth grade teacher of reading and language arts. I loved it. I can't wait to go back.

Those are the 6 kind of normal things. Now let's go for the more...unusual... :) (This isn't part of the tagging, I just think it's fun, see #1 below). :)

1) I always go overboard. And I don't mean out boating. I overdo everything. Just ask Rob.
2) I have irrational fears of vacuums, worms, and mice wearing bonnets.
3) My kids are both PK's and TK's. They are maimed for life.
4) I haven't had my hair cut professionally in 10 years. Now, that's scary!
5) I never go in bare feet. (My folks owned a shoe store, so why would I?) :) Probably because of this habit, I have very wimpy feet. Very.
6) When under undo stress, I often have "bug" dreams. I wake up screaming about some bug or rodent or snake in the bed. I'll say it for you, "Weird." And if Rob tries to wake me up, I kick him. Oh, I am SUCH a fun wife! :) I'll say this for him, though, he takes his life in his own hands and grabs me if I try to stand up on the bed to escape... especially if the ceiling fan is on. Yeah, it scares me too.
The rules:

-You don't have to play if you don't want to.

- Pass this along to 6 other blogger buds (via a comment on their blog).

- List 6 things people may or may not know about you, providing you're okay with 6 other bloggers (and the rest of the blogosphere, potentially) knowing more about you.

I am tagging (and apologizing in advance):

Eric @ SPEEDCAT HOLLYDALE PAGE (and don't you dare tag me back!!!) lol
Beth at "A Mom's Life"
Tosca @ Perfect Tosca
Leslie Ruth @ Diary of a Southern Drama Queen
Lauren @ Must Love Dogs...and My Parakeet
Suburban Correspondent @ The More, The Messier

Tagged I am! My stress dream always involved tidal waves - and upon waking up, I would comfort myself with the thought that they didn't really exist.

That worked, until December took me weeks to get over the fact that those things really happen. And, yes, I still have the dreams. They're more terrifying than ever.

Chris said...

I am so sorry about the tagging! But, I really enjoy your blog, so I know you will make it hilarious. :)

Those stress dreams seem so real. Rob's gotten so used to them that his new plan to save his shins is to just curl in a ball, yell "FIRE," and watch me run from the room. He's just a bundle of fun. :) lol

Thanks for being nice about the tagging. :)

Summer said...

#2 is wonderful. I love it!

Chris said...

Yeah, I like that one too. :) I guess you have to have watched "Newhart" to really appreciate it, though. :)

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

What is Euchre??? Is that a card game? And #2 made me laugh out loud!

Chris said...

Hi Beth!

Yes, Euchre is a card game. It's really fun.

I'm glad #2 made you laugh. :)

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Seems I owe you a link "or two" already (((blush)))

But I always re-tag ... be forwarned everyone - I always re-tag those listed HERE too :-)

Thanks for thinking of the OLd Cat in Hollydale. I shall be Memeioling soon. Is that a word? hmmmm, I wonder. Meme, Memming, Memeioling (The proccess of tagging more than one and writting a meme)

So THAT is the BEAR connection. Another mystery "SOLV-ED" Like Pink Panther ...

Chris said...

Hey Speedy!

OH NO! I didn't know you were a MAD MEMER! Or is that Memeioler?

Memeioling sounds like going caroling (with memes?).

Do you retag in a sort of silent protest against getting tagged? Just curious... :)

You could have just ASKED about the bear thing, ya know. :) I would have told you eventually. :) lol You didn't have to go all pink panther on it. hehe Although, that was funny... The bear thing is also the reason people online call me Sarah all the time.

PerfectTosca said...

Ok I'm on it!

Chris said...

Tosca, you are the cat's pajamas!
