Artsymama has challenged her readers to post "16 things about me", so I am going to give it a try.

1. I cry like a baby at parent/teacher conferences when teachers says nice things about my kids.

2. I have been buying and saving things for a summer house we don't have.

3. I see at least one movie a week all by myself, my husband stays home with the kids while I sneak away to the movies.

4. I asked our garbage man, and we have more recycling than anyone else on our block.

5. I have gone to the flea market with a fever.

6. I secretly leave baskets of flowers on doorsteps
May 1st.

7. I dance like Rerun from "What's Happenin' " when no one is around.

8. I met my husband when I was 18 years old in college.

9. I keep the house at 63 degrees.

10. I wore a size 7 shoe before I had children, now I wear an 8.5.

11. My hair looks like a wig.(Scary)
12. For my 13th birthday I asked for 13 cans of
black olives
instead of a birthday cake. (Freaky)
13. I have vowed never to wear capri pants.(Dumpy)
14. For two years I was paid to read 30 newspapers a day.(Inky)
15. I have perfected yawning through my nose,
so I don't offend someone who is rather boring.(Flary)
16. I lived in Virginia in 1st grade and left with a southern accent.(HeeHawy)

Oh I loved this posting. Too funny. You need to share your secret for yawning through your nose. I would probably blow snot and boogers everywhere and really embarass myself.

63 degrees...a wise choice of preparedness for Menopause,lol!
What is the deal with pregnancy and feet growth! I went up a shoe size also. Did you see the (pregnant)gal on Ellen's show who had one foot that tripled in size while the other remand the same size. Bad news, the doctor said it wouldn't shrink back after delivery!
Thanks for sharing a few personal tidbits about yourself.

Sweet Wishes,
