Ten Random Things About Me

1. My family moved from Nebraska to Illinois when I was three. During the move, I got stung by a bumblebee on my big toe!
2. When I’m stopped in traffic and I see someone singing along to a song in their car, I try to figure out what radio station they’re listening to.
3. When I was in elementary school and junior high, I ran in track meets. My event was the mile and I loved it. But when I went to a large suburban high school, I was too scared to try out for the track team and I gave up running.
4. I was a waitress at Pizza Hut in high school. Not a good tipping job.
5. When my youngest sister, who was in high school, told me I should date her Youth Leader, I just laughed. Years later I started dating him and we’ve been married for over 12 years.
6. I used to hate asparagus and now I love it. Believe, I tell my kids this story a lot when they complain about food they don’t like.
7. My other sister always gives me her mushrooms.
8. I had my first baby at the same age my mom was when she had her last baby; we were 35 years old.
9. I can’t believe I’m so old that I had breast cancer 19 years ago. Yes, I was very young.
10. I still love reading real books, real magazines, and actual newspapers.

11. I hate being late, and yet now that I’m a mother, I usually am late!

  1. Great facts to share! I love the story about you and your husband. I guess your sister knew you two would make a great pair. :)Congratulations for beating cancer! It is such a hard experience to go through, especially at a young age. And I agree – real books and magazines are so much better!

  2. Fun! I didn’t use to like onions, but during my first pregnancy I craved them on everything – pizza, sandwiches, etc. I still like them and eat them now almost thirteen years later. However, you could have my mushrooms, too. I also didn’t want to date my my husband when I first met him – some friends gave him my number without me knowing about it! He called. I reluctantly said yes. We celebrated our 16 anniversary last December!

  3. Nineteen years is a long time and I thank God for your survival. I never liked mushrooms but I had collectible mushroom items like wall hangings, mugs and figurines. Now I adore eating mushrooms. I still love reading real books and magazines too. I’ve never been a newspaper reader.

  4. I totally understand your other sister and the mushrooms. I always tend to give them to whoever wants them. If nobody wants them, I will leave them.

    As for books: totally with you: the real thing! Also because I haven’t yet been able to get a nice thingymebob to do the digital reading. But books look so much better in a bookcase though.

  5. I’ve always thought about scanning the radio stations trying to find the match to the one my “neighbor” is listening to! How funny!

    I loved playing softball in gradeschool. Went out for the team in highschool and was too scared to give it my all, so I quit after freshman year.

    Wondered how you and Ed hooked up…that’s a cute story!
