I've been tagged...

Hey, I was recently tagged by Mari to list 7 Random Facts about myself! Thanks lady. I'm almost positive that I've done this before, a couple times maybe. But I'm pretty sure that since then, there are now a few more "odd/different" things about myself that I can list. lol. So here goes. But first....

Here are the rules:
~Link to the person that tagged you
~Post these rules on your blog
~Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
~Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs
~Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a coment on their blog

7 Random Facts About Me:
1. I named my oldest daughter (Briyanna) after a Cabbage Patch doll that I was given the summer before I had her. I spelled her name a little differently though. Hmmm, now that I think about it, I'm not even sure she knows that :-).
2. I still have nightmares when I watch a scary movie. As a matter of fact, I actually cover my eyes at the spooky parts.
3. I am constantly reading magazines, books and articles on ORGANIZATION. But I never "do" what they suggest. I just like saying, "Hmmm, that's a good idea. I'm gonna do that one day!"
4. I enjoy changing diapers. Not to worry, I'm not some kind of perv or anything. I just love for babies to be comfy and dry.
5. I CANNOT add (or subtract,or multiply, or divide) in my head! I still count on my fingers. Basically, I am TERRIBLE at math. I admit it. As much as I LOVE coupons, I hate having to wonder, how much I'm really getting off. For the life of me, I can't figure that kinda stuff out. CALCULATORS ARE MY FRIEND!!!
6. Based on my #5 answer, you may find this hard to believe. But, I worked for SEVERAL years in accounts payable for a major telecommunications company. Again, calculators are my friend! LOL
7. I LOVE to type. BLOGGING is my friend :-)

Well, that's a wrap! Now I realize that I'm supposed to tag 7 people. However, I have noticed that most of the people who's blogs I read, have already been tagged by someone else. So I guess I'm kinda breaking the chain, so to speak. BUT...if you're reading this and you have NOT done this yet, consider yourself tagged. :-)

I used to be able to watch scary movies, but I can't anymore. I get freaked out to easily. And calculators are my friend too!!

I can't watch scary movies at all. I sneak and read themoviespoiler.com instead (but only in the daytime even reading it will spook me out at night). My second son actually shares the same name as one of my first cabbage patch kids but I didn't realize it until I was recently looking through some things my parents had from my childhood and boom there was my son's name! Perhaps I subconsciously realized it but until that moment I just thought I liked the name lol.

I LOVE your list of random things!! I think we've all done these before, but I love reading them anyway. There's always something else to learn!

I also HATE scary movies but I'm smart enough to not even try and watch them. I know I'll get nightmares!

I also stink at math!! Yuck!!! I can't even help Delaney with her 6th grade math!

Adrienne said...

I did NOT know that about your daughters name!!! Me no likey scary movies either...I only watch them when TOny is in front of my face and I can't see the TV! LOL

I love scary movies yet I have nightmares too.

I love to type and can do it darn fast!

My cabbage patch doll was Patsy Virginia.

Jude said...

Based on answer number four I would like you to come live with me... :)

Susie Q said...

I cannot do MATH at all! I probably would mess it up using my fingers! Now I see Gracie struggling so hard with math and it pains me as I know what she is going through!

How sweet about the CP doll name!! It IS a pretty name you know!

NO scary movies..EVER!!!

And, I too read about organizing and do it for awhile then get behind...then I read more and think about it...the I try again, then slide...: )

LOVE your lists, love your posts, love your blog, love YOU!

Warm hugs,

Your number 5 and 6 are to funny!!I hate scary movies because I dream about them too!

Staci said...

re: #6, I had a conversation with friends recently about how "spell checkers" have changed our lives. We were all in a class that today would probably be called an AP English class and we were "good spellers." However, I've become rather lazy, and I misspell words that used to be easy!

Electronic gadgets have really changed our lives, haven't they?

on #3, I laugh because of the :one day" part!! Aren't we all??? LOL!! The saddest thing is when we actually get ready to do one of those great ideas on organization . . . and we can't find the article to refresh ourselves on how to do it!!
