"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Wow! I was Tagged...

I was tagged by Steph to share 7 random things about me.
1) I'm pretty sure that I'm boring! No really, I'm sure people only like me because of my children or that my husband is so entertaining. I think that people are friends with us because of Troy and that they just tolerate me. I honestly told one of my friends that, and well, she just laughed at me and said I was silly. :D
2) I love Halloween, I love playing dress-up with the kids. I'm pretty sure that I have more fun than the kids.
3) I hate to fold laundry -- now, I'll wash and dry it all day long but I just can't stand to fold -- my kids learn to fold at an early age, I don't care what it looks like as long as they given it the ol "college try" and it get into their drawers/closets.
4) I love to read, but this wasn't always the case .... when I was in grade school, I had to go to a one on one reading class twice a week with Mrs. (Myrna) Chaney. Once it caught on, well there was NO stopping me. I read mostly historical fiction, fiction and fantasy/sci fi. I fall asleep if the book is too educational or has no story. I also will read biographies, if is someone I really want to know more about. Mostly I read for pleasure.
5) I love babies -- little ones that can't talk back.
6) I have 4 brothers and 3 sisters. I have 9 nieces and 12 nephews {one more due in Feb 08}. I have 3 sons and 3 daughters.
7) I love taking pictures, scrapbooking and blogging.
And one more for good measure. 8) I love getting together Friday or Saturday nights and playing games/cards with friends {refer to #1 on the friends :D}
And now I tag {drum roll, please}......... Heather, Andrea, Angie, Darla, Tina, Michelle, Keeley, Melissa, and Sherri. OK, so I tagged a few extra ... some may have been tagged before-- want everyone to get a chance. There are several others I could have and would have except I read on their blogs that others already tagged you.

I appreciate being tagged, but I was tagged in September and then proceeded to tag everyone I know, so I'll just link you to my factoids here:

Angie-- thanks I'll check them out!

Darla said...

You boring? That I find difficult to believe! :) You seem far from it, actually! I came here to post my seven random things but my baby started her song and dance at the same time so now I have her fed and lying across my lap. I know that she needs to burp stil and then I better tuck into bed since it's nearly 4a.m. I think that I will have more mental clarity tomorrow! Then again, listing 7 random things about oneself maybe is more spontaneous and interesting when done with less mental clarity! :)

carrie & troy keiser said...

Darla- Thanks, I'll be looking forward to reading your list. It took me all day to finish my random things!

crystal said...

Do you realize you said these 2 things BACK-TO-BACK?...

1)I'm boring
2) I love to dress up for Halloween with the kids.

So I beg to differ, Missy Un-Boring!!!
