I've Been Tagged


1. This the first time I've been tagged. Although I've filled out many email friend surveys, which seems to be a similar game.
2. I was born at home and my dad delivered me. I guess my mom also played a part in it. My parents weren't too keen on some of the procedures practiced in hospitals during deliveries at the time, so my dad read a book and called it good.
3. I wanted to win a gold medal in gymnastics more than anything when I was young. I was a gymnast from age 8 to age 17 and even attended an Olympic developement high school where sports was a requirement and everyone had two P.E. classes a day. When I was about to graduate and it was more than apparent I wasn't going to go to the Olympics in 1996, I had no idea what to study in college, because I only wanted to be an Olympian.
4. I wanted to be 5'9. Somehow, I got this idea in my head that 5'9 was the perfect height and if I focused hard enough on getting there I could do it. By the way, I'm 5'6 and seem to have a habit of setting impossible goals.
5. I've always wanted to have twins. I have no kids right now, so this statement may come back to haunt me as a reminder to be careful what you ask for. I love kids and good deals, so why wouldn't I want two for the price of one.
6. I'm not a messy person, unless I'm eating chocolate. I'm not kidding. Ask my husband. Somehow it will end up on my pants, in my hair, on the couch, etc... This is really ironic, considering it is my favorite thing to eat, so you think I would be extra careful to get it ALL in my mouth.
7. In third grade I ate an entire piece of paper in front of my whole class. Our substitute teacher told me my hand writing was too small and I needed to do the entire assignment over again. I told her my normal teacher liked my hand writing and an arguement insued. I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but somehow eating my paper, so she couldn't throw it away seemed like my best alternative. I showed her!

Okay, you are the funniest person that I know. I loved every one of the things that you put down and your explanation of each. I wish that I could be Lilleth someday.

I would love to see some of your gymnastic moves. What is your best trick? I am so impressed. I think my number one feat was a back walkover...a pretty awesome back walkover:)

I love that you ate your paper :) You crack me up. Good luck with the twins when they come--maybe you will have one first and then they can be your little helper with the twins :) That might be a bit easier...than again, maybe not!
