I've Been Tagged!

I got tagged by Amy - thanks!

Six Random things about me:

1. Before I met Troy, I swore I never wanted children. Every time I got around children they seemed to cry. My firends used to tease me about it all the time. Now I can't imagine life without my son and secretly dream of heading back to Russia for another child. Boy things change don't they?

2. I swore I would never watch a realty show and now I'm hooked on Survivor, The Amazing Race, The Bachelor. Even playing in the background now is America's Got Talent. Help me please!!

3. I love animals. I talk to all of them. I even think groundhogs are cute. Troy thinks I'm a nut and rolls his eyes when Daniel sees a groundhog and says hi to it (from the car). He jokingly refers to me as the 'animal whisperer' and asks me not to pass it on to Daniel who he hopes is a hunter like himself. (I do allow deer heads on the wall, but he can't sop me from apologizing to them! It's an interesting mix - an animal lover and a hunter. It's true that opposites attract.)

4. I hate sea food and mayonaisse, but I love tuna fish salad. I know it doesn't make any sense. Is there a law that says everything has to make sense??!!

5. Troy and I met at a party about a year before we met again. I didn't remember him, until he told me who he was. Then he claims I blew him off and went dancing with my friends. The truth is he just stood there so I basically said 'see you later'. I was the one who asked him to dance later on. He used to be shy - what happened?

6. I worry about everything. I do mean everything. The tiniest little thing and I'm on it. Troy swears I am going to drive myself batty. I jokingly tell him that one day he's going to come home to find me stroking a My Little Pony mane (yes, I still have that darn collection) saying "nice pony" over and over.

I'm going to tag the following people. Hopefully you haven't already been tagged and if you have, consider yourself popular with the natives!!


If I have tagged you, here are the rules!
1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on the blog.
3. Write six random facts about yourself.
4.Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged.
6. Let the taggers know when your entry is up.

These are always a fun way to get to know each other and to take a step back from posting adoption news!

I always love reading what interesting facts people share. Reading yours emphasizes why we are such great friends. There are so many similarities. I'm the animal lover, Norman the hunter. I always pray for the dead animals I see along the road side.

In my early to mid twenties, my girlfriends would talk about wanting lots of babies. Even though I loved toddlers and even volunteered at Shriners and with the Big Sisters program, I was worried why I didn't want children at that point in my life. I called mom to ask why I didn't have these same feelings. I guess I was so career driven at the time that it took getting married and settling down to stir those feelings. Like you, I would like to have additional children ;o)

Isn't it amazing how one little person can change your mind about so many things so quickly and effortlessly. Thank God for our kids!

Becky and Keith said...

Oh - I totally talk to animals. I KNEW I liked you! :-)

Mary & Michael said...

I'm just catching up on your last few posts. I can't believe you had your first PPR already. Times goes by fast, doesn't it? Your trip to the beach looked like so much fun, photos were great. I'm glad Daniel is doing well at day care. I'm like you with the reality shows, hate them but totally addicted!!
