I just discovered that HopiQ tagged me to do a "seven random things" meme. I don't get around to too many blogs these days, so I'm a little late to the party. However, I thought I'd participate anyhow! :-)

Several of my siblings are attending college and the word that has replaced "cool" is "random". So instead of saying, "that is so cool" they say, "that is so random". I guess I'm an old fogey because that just sounds so stupid to me. LOL

So here are some totally random, totally cool facts about me:

1. I have really enjoyed being in my 30's. Much better than my 20's, I think.

2. I enjoy cooking, but don't really enjoy baking. Baking is too nerve-wracking!

3. I hate spiders, mainly because I got a poisonous spider bite as a teenager. But then, I haven't gotten bitten by a mouse or a snake, and I avoid them at all costs as well. So I guess I just don't like creepy-crawly things!

4. I've had the material to make our living room valance for over 2 years. I haven't even started on it. *Sigh* I'm such a procrastinator sometimes!

5. Since moving to Michigan, I can tell when it is going to rain. I couldn't do that in California. Maybe it is easier to tell here?

6. I really dislike sweeping and mopping. Too bad over half our house is hardwood, tile, or laminate!

7. I love to make gifts for loved ones! I hope to make all my Christmas presents this year. :-)

If I were playing by the rules, I'd have to tag 7 more people. But I'm not playing by the rules. So...if you'd like to participate, just go right ahead! ;-)

Thanks so much for participating! It's nice to know you check my blog. :) I was a bad girl and didn't let anyone know they were tagged. If they found it, fine.

I love hearing your random tidbits as well as about the baby preparations, and I am praying for you across the miles...or is it across the web? Oh, wait, that might may you think of spides...we'll just say miles. :)

I love the changes that you made your blog. The colors look great and I love the ribbon and flowers.
I hope that you're feeling better.

I don't like sweeping and mopping, either. Actually, I don't mind sweeping nearly as much as I dislike mopping. Is that weird?

I also hate spiders, and even thinking about them makes me cringe sometimes... *shudders*
