I’ve Been Tagged!

by Linda for Seven Random Things About Me!

  1. I used to have 12 pet rats. The first was a gift from my husband (then boyfriend) as I graduated college. When his father heard he said “how romantic”.
  2. I know how to knit and crochet.  I often make things without following a pattern.
  3. As a kid, I really struggled learning how to read.  I remember wanting to be in the advanced group and knowing I was in the low group.  I’m so glad both my kids are above average readers.
  4. My favorite flavor ice cream is banana.  Especially Chunky Monkey.  And the homemade kind at a local farm.  This could explain my need to lose weight 😉
  5. I LOVE LOVE LOVE autumn.  The smell in the air.  The leaves changing.  The chilly edge to the breeze.  Picking pumpkins.  Warm apple cider.  I smile just thinking about it.  Even as a kid I loved fall (and oddly, I even looked forward to the start of school).
  6. When I was a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian.  Then I realized I’d have to perform surgeries.  Every now and then I think about becoming a vet tech, but the idea of assisting a surgery still makes me nervous.  I’ve also thought about going back to school to be a reading specialist (see #3).
  7. I have a knack for music.  I’m usually able to pick up how to play very quickly and with little instruction.  On a regular basis I play guitar and piano.

  1. I struggled with reading too. I wonder how many successful authors did when they were young.
