7 Random Things About Me
I got tagged by 3 Sleeves To The Wind to tell you 7 random things about me. I have no earthly idea where to start. I am a pretty boring person as far as I am concerned. So here goes.

1. I met my husband on a blind date that his best friend arranged. I dated him for 10 days and after 7 months of letter writing and a long distance romance, we eloped and now have been married 28 years. …and they said it wouldn’t last!
2. I ambidextrous.
3. When I was 19 I did some hair modeling for Jermac Hair Products. I was discovered when I was about to get my long hair all cut off. The person freaked and said I needed to keep my hair to do the modeling and I did.
4. When I was in the 4th grade I lived next door to a girl whose father had Playboys under his bed. We used to sneak in and look at the pictures. I secretly wanted to be a Playboy center fold until I was about 14. I didn’t know that they didn’t take 5’2” freckle faced girls. I was devastated. I got over it.
5. I am a chocoholic.
6. I have had gastric by pass surgery and lost 110 lbs. Sadly I have gained about half of that back.
7. I am a city girl, but lived on a dairy farm my last few months of high school. I can milk a cow by hand.

You sound more fun than boring! And you've got one one me--I know a lot about cows, but not how to milk one.
Thanks for answering the meme.

I typed it out right after you tagged me but just haven't had a day off to sit down and get it ready for posting. I really had a hard time finding 7 things about myself. I am truly a pretty boring person! I really did love living on the farm and hopefully when hubby retires, we can own a small one with some sheep lawn mowers.

I think it would be a challenge to keep weight off considering your profession. Everything that tastes good is full of fat and calories. You are surrounded by temptation on a daily basis.

I wanted SO BADLY to be ambidextrous when I was a little kid. I used to practice and practice, but to no avail.

How good to hear from you! Missed you and the gang. Life has been a bit bothersome lately, but I'll keep trying to get there!
Knit on, ROmelda

WW-it's a daily challenge not to eat everything in site. The worst part is-I don't eat at work but eat non stop once I get home. I am too busy at work to much eating. They watch us like hawks anyway!

Mebeth-I have no idea when I found out I could write with both hands. I think I was jealous of all the lefties. So I tried it. I always thought that lefties were more creative and I really wanted to be like them.

Romelda-I am so sorry that things have gone nuts since trying to get your knee surgery. I know you must have really been bummed out. I am hoping that I will get to see you some time soon and we can see what all you have knit.
