Bringing in the New Year!

a late Merry Christmas!

It seems like I have been away for such a long break. Besides the holidays and the kids and husband being on vacation, I've been working on a big commission that I can not post. As soon as it is finished, which should be this coming up week, I will back to my usual trouble. In between working on the commission, I've been visiting family, taking the kids ice skating, bowling, sledding - anything to keep the kids from ripping each other apart. When will school be going back???
I was recently tagged by Liz P, aka Elizabeth Patterson. I've been tagged before and have to say, I didn't follow through. :-( I started many times but just didn't quite finish. So as a New Year's treat I'll try.
Things you may not know about me:

1. I almost always instigated my sister to fight with me... it was so much fun to watch her get mad. My sister and I are in that photo at the top of the post. The sweet little innocent one on the scoot toy is me.
2. The first concert I went to was Rick Springfield.
3. I once met Simon & Simon and played catch with Gerald Mc Raney and his son.
4. My mother wouldn't let me take art classes in high school until senior year because she wanted me to take foreign language. I took french... and I can't remember any of it.
5. When I was 19 I was a waitress at a 50's style diner and had to wear flare on my pink ruffly waitress uniform and I enjoyed it. (see photo left)
6. It took me 7 years to graduate college with a bachelors degree (3 at junior college, 4 at university). It was just too much fun to leave...
7. When I met my husband I swore I did not want to get serious.
8. I never read a book I didn't have to read until I went to college. Now I love to read.
9. We don't have cable or satellite and the only station we get on our tv is pbs.
10. I love sweater rock... If you would like to listen to my sweater rock Pandora station, email me and I can email you the link.
Now I have to nominate people? Oh boy!! Maybe I'll get to that part soon!
