Lee Ann tagged me to earn the Honest Scrap Award. I don’t really know what that means, but I do as I’m tagged.
The instructions? The Honest Scrap award comes with a caveat or two. Firstly you have to tell your readers 10 things about you that you think they may not know, but that are true. Secondly you have to tag 10 people with the award.
Depending on who you are and how we know each other, some of this might not be new to you, although I think for the majority of you, it will be.
Five things about me is probably more than anyone cares to read, but here goes with TEN.
1. I eat no fish, or anything else that used to live in water. I just don’t like any of it except a tuna salad sandwich. Fridays during Lent are a pain. I grew up having to eat some sort of fish every Friday. Everyone in my family loves a great seafood meal, except me.
2. I taught Special Education students before there were IEPs. It was a self-contained class of 10-12 year old children. I basically had 3-4 sets of lesson plans each and every week in order to teach the many levels in my one room. There was no classroom aide. I loved being a teacher.
3. I went to (hmm, gotta count…) 8 schools from kindergarten through high school. As an army brat, we moved – a lot.
4. I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid at my college physical. So I’ve been taking some sort of thyroid medication since I was 18. I take Synthroid now.
5. My dad loved to garden and passed that onto me. I’ve had a vegetable garden at each home where we’ve lived since marriage except this one. Living in the woods, the animals eat most everything and so I gave up. We buy our veggies at a local farm (how come animals don’t eat his stuff???).
6. This morning I watched two coyotes run through the back yard. (I think they were coyotes. They weren’t foxes…)
7. My husband and I met in college. We each thought the other was an extremely annoying person. A couple of years later, we went out, were engaged within weeks and married the next summer. We still laugh about it.
8. I could not cope with diabetes without the Diabetes OC.
9. I don’t cook anymore, well – not much. When we moved to NH, my husband took over the cooking. I adore not having to “plan” dinner! I don’t do the grocery shopping either. It’s great!!
10. I hate shopping for clothes. It’s even harder living here in the boonies as the closest mall is an hour away.
I don’t have ten people to tag. I’m not even sure 10 people read this blog. If you’d like to do this, please do and let me know. Guess that means I won’t get any award but it was fun to do on a cold March evening.
