I’ve been tagged by Chrysanthemama for this meme. I hope I don’t find out that I’m really boring as I write this!

Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6).
3) Write 6 random things about yourself (see below).
4) Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Ok, here it goes. . .

~I’ve always wanted to be a singer. I was in choir and drama in high school, but was never gutsy enough to sing alone in front of anyone. I sing in front of my kids all the time, and occasionally my husband, but no one else. My voice just doesn’t come out right when I’m nervous! I love watching American Idol, and know that if I sang on it, the judges would instantly fall asleep because all I can sing well are lullabies!

~I HATE it when a room in our house has “corner clutter”- piles of unidentified junk tucked into the corners of the room, and under the furniture. Just because I hate it doesn’t mean I have time to do anything about it, though! Arrrgh!

~When I was about 7, my mom showed me how to thread her old Kenmore sewing machine and the first thing I made was a doll, complete with an embroidered face, yarn hair and clothes! I consider myself a self-taught seamstress, and have been sewing my whole life. I hate to use patterns, don’t love making clothes, and am constantly fascinated by the way people dress their windows. I did custom window treatments for a while, but got tired of making drapery panels that were longer than my sewing table.

~During my engagement, my soon-to-be husband and I nearly drowned. Against our better judgement, we went canoeing after a long rainstorm, assured by the canoe livery folks that the river we were heading out on was quite tame and not high. Our canoe got wedged sideways against a giant tree that had fallen across the river, and then the swift current sucked it under. We were left hanging on to the side of the log and had to be rescued by two canoes full of large men. It took them about 45 minutes to pull our capsized boat out from under the rushing water.

~When I was pregnant with Alec, I ate popcorn with Tabasco sauce on it. One of the times, I threw it back up and I’ve never wanted it since. Until now.

~My nickname from Marvin is “Strumpy” and his from me is “Pumpy”. If anyone is curious as to the origin (I promise it’s not that exciting!), you can leave a comment. We have a funny habit of singing made-up words to a song, usually an 80’s tune and our lyrics are typically extremely juvenile, but always rhyme!

I'm tagging McSarah, 4 Little Men and Girly Twins, Faith Hope Love, The Van Klan,
