25 Things About Me

Write an entry listing 25 things about yourself. Start each with "I" -- elaborate on each as much or as little as you'd like. Try to focus on current things in your life or facts about you as a person. Give us a mental picture of who you are & what your life is like outside of J-Land.

1..I am a born again Christian, accepting Jesus as my personal Savior when I was 9 years old.

2..I work at the same hospital where I was born (nope I'm not a in the Customer Service Call Center)

3..I am a natural blond.  However, I have always longed for dark hair, eye brows, and eye lashes (have used lots of mascara & eye brow pencil over the years.)

4..I always wanted to have a big family, lots of kids... but God blessed me with two, a daughter and a son.  And it's too late now to change that.

5..I really don't like to fly...but I have and I will again if it means I can get somewhere fast.

6..I love to go camping on Washington, Oregon and Califronia's ocean beaches. 

7..I love to take road trips and see the sights (as opposed to flying over them).

8..I met and had lunch with John Wayne when I was in the 7th grade (1955).

9..I prefer cats to dogs.  However, I love other people's dogs.  I just don't like the walk & pick up poop thing.

10..I recently received my award for 30 years as an Avon Representative.

11..I have never had a broken bone .

12..I did not go to my Senior Prom.

13..I did not have my first car until after I was 20 years old.

14..I'm still using the end tables and the bedroom dressers and night stands that my former husband and I bought together back in the late 1970's. I still love them. 

15..I was a "Brownie" and a "Girl Scout" but then we moved out of the city, into a rural area, so I never got to move up the Girl Scout ladder.

16..I was in 4-H once we moved out into the rural area.  My mom was the leader and our main focus was sewing.

17..I grew up on a small farm from about the age of 10 on.  We had 10 acres, with cows, pigs, chickens and a huge garden.

18..I did have to learn to milk our cow, Daisy, so my dad could go fishing once in awihile.

19..I was blessed to have grandparents in my life.  I realize now how much they impacted my life.

20..I miss my mom and dad, also.  My mom passed away Oct 8, 1987 and my dad on Sept 14, 1990.  They loved each other dearly and my brother and I always knew we were loved.

21..I loved my first cruise to Alaska a couple weeks ago and hope to go again next August.

22..I can still remember my school song...can you?

23..I've had two great loves in my life. 

24..I'm allergic to all pain medication, not fun sometimes but it is what it is.

25..I'm going to go bake some cookies, for myself..not for a bake sale or someone else like I usually do.

Until next time.......Linda
