25 Things About Me

My friend, Kathy, at Momofmany, has tagged me to list 25 things about myself. I must admit that I have been procrastinating on this. Twenty-five is a lot of things!!! But, here goes:

1. I got married when I was 20 years old!
2. I've been married to the same man for 26 years come May 14th!
3. I graduated from college in 3 years with a BA degree in English.
4. After graduation, I worked as a technical writer.
5. When I got married, I planned to have one or two children; three at most!!!
6. I have one sister who is four years younger than me.
7. My sister and I used to fight a lot when we were young, but when we were getting along, we liked to play school and library! Many old books I have still have "library pockets" stapled to the cover page!
8. I persuaded my sister to start a blog, and she has a lovely blog! (BTW, we no longer fight! We are now very close, even though we live far away from one another.)
9. Between my sister and me, my parents have 15 grandchildren!!!
10. My favorite food is Italian. I love pizza, spaghetti, manicotti, etc.
11. I love Chocolate!
12. I love eating raw cookie dough!
13. Because of items #9, 10, 11 and 12, I have a bunch of weight to lose! :(
14. I enjoy trying new recipes, but get tired of having to put together a meal night after night.
15. My favorite color is blue.
16. I love watching old movies, especially those with Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant.
17. I never broke a bone, until this past fall when I broke my ankle by tripping in a hole in my yard!!!
18. I love email and blogging!
19. I hate spiders!!!! (Just ask my sister!!!!)
20. I drive a 12 passengar van with 12 fishes on the back!
21. I used to drive a 15 passengar van, until we had a rollover accident.
22. In the spring of 2006, our family took a 5 week trip from the east coast to the west coast and back!
23. My favorite part of the trip was going to White Sands, NM.
24. I have been to Canada and Mexico, but not overseas.
25. I have never been on a cruise, but would like to go on one someday.

OK -- I did it! Now it's your turn:

In 2006 our family (we had 10 kids at the time) took a 5 week trip from the west coast to the east coast and back. Crazy! Maybe we passed each other on the road ...

My favorite place was the Carlsbad Caverns in NM.

We drive a 15 pass. van and pull a tent trailer for our road trips.

Hoping for another cross-country trip this summer, to introduce our 3 new kids to the good ol' U.S.A.
