I have been nominated for the Seven Things About Me by Jackie at Change for better me Thank you Jackie. Jackie actually nominated me a few days ago, but life has been so busy I haven’t had time to respond until now. In addition to Jackie’s blog Change for a better me, also check out her writing blog. Her stories are wonderful, click here to view her stories.
The rules are simple enough:
- Thank and link back to the person who nominated you.
- List seven things about yourself. It can be anything.
- Nominate seven other people
Coming up with seven things about myself feels daunting at this point. I feel like I have shared so much about myself that I have very little left to share, but here it goes.
- I grew up hating vegetables, today it amazes people to see I am a vegetarian.
- I don’t feel as if I am getting older until my son who turned 28 this month reminds me he’s almost 30. Where did the years go to?
- My favorite food, which I can no longer get, was lasagna made by my grandmother’s best friend who used a recipe her husband brought with him from Italy. Actually, I craved it so much when pregnant with my first child (nope no ice cream or pickles that could easily come from the store) that she immediately made me a very large pan which when frozen in meal-sized packages filled majority of the freezer.
- The one thing I am asked to make for friends and family is pepperoni balls, but I hate the taste of pepperoni.
- In college I minored in computer science, but being before the age of Windows I am lost and need my son to do my computer repairs.
- I was raised believing I could do anything even with physical limitations. Right after my high school graduation I decided to book a lesson in skydiving, being the daredevil I was then, I arrived for my lesson and realized that if I couldn’t perform a landing properly it was really going to hurt when landing. It’s the only thing I ever chickened out on. I returned to my car, never even walking into the office to cancel my appointment for fear the instructor would talk me into trying it after all.
- I don’t believe a home is a home unless it’s filled with blankets, pillows, books, music and laughter. The only ingredients for happiness?
Now for the Seven people I am nominating, each is very different so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
