CHALLENGE # 2
Sharon tagged me to name 6 random things about my self....so, here goes...
1. I love to read...but do not always have time to read. At the present time, I have about 25 books that I have bought and are just waiting for me to find time for them.
2. I am lactose intolerant. So, milk does a real number on me if I consume it. I don't like it to drink...but, I do like an occasional bowl of cereal. So, I have to want it really bad...cause I will invariably suffer the consequences.
3. I have kept every card and letter sent to me over the past 20 years. It is fun to go back and reread these and remember the people who sent them.
4. I love to organize things. It is very a very calming activity to sort through items and separate them into categories. The problem I have is follow through...I like to sort and categorize...just not store and put away. Big problem!
5. I love boxes...especially old wooden boxes. I like the ones that have several layers of paint on them and have obviously been well used. I really get excited if I find a box like I have never seen before.
6. I really enjoy watching So You Think You Can Dance? on TV. This is the 3rd season. I do not like Dancing with the Stars at all, but this show takes kids who really can dance and showcases their talent. It is amazing how they can learn new choreography each week, even when they have not ever danced that particular style before. Much harder than DWTS...this show is about real talent. No, I do not think I can dance.
*********************************************************************************
So, there you go, way more about me than you ever wanted to know. I am not going to tag anyone specifically...but, come on, folks, be a sport...play along!

Tonya,
Thanks for the kind words and encouragement about my book publishing.
I actually have it in my hands and it so crazy to hold my own book that Gog inspired! Talk about a miracle.

p.s I love that nest and egg.

I could really use some help organizing and since it's calming and all, I just thought I'd offer! :)
