It has been an unbelievable two weeks for me… a great Disney cruise with too little sleep, coming back to WAY too much work, a broken air conditioner with 21 computers, the biggest heatwave to ever hit south Georgia (literally 105 for 5 days straight now!) and my oldest child breaking his arm in an accident. It has been something.
Eight Random Things About Me
I seem to recall doing something like this before but cannot find it, so here it goes:
1 – I was the Georgia Peanut Princess as a teenager and ran all over a float in the middle of a parade at the National Peanut Festival being chased by a wasp.
2 – I am a clutz (if you couldn't tell from the previous random thought), my most famous spills are when I knocked myself out with a freezer door and as a child I played supergirl over a barbed wire fence. When I jumped off the brick pile, the bricks flew out from under my feet and I landed on the barbed wire fence–and have scars across my tender belly to prove it. (And no, I do not drink at all.)
3 – I am 100% a farm girl and spent my summer breaks in college hauling peanut and corn wagons. As the oldest of three girls, I was worked like a boy and am not afraid of getting dirty.
4 – I hate shoes. I wish I could go barefooted all of the time.
5 – I love to read and am usually reading three books at a time — a non fiction, a fiction (usually blow them up adventure book) and a self-improvement book working on whereever my (biggest) weakness is at the moment.
6 – I love movies of all kids — especially action movies and classic movies.
7 – I have been consistently writing in my journal since I was eight.
8 – I love to cross stitch, crochet, make jelly, cook, write, FISH and am usually willing to try almost anything legal (except alcohol) once. I like to be unpredictable and do not like being bored.
