Day 2 – This is the day I guess I have to reveal a bit about myself. Today is the day I reveal 20 facts about me.
1 – I’m short: Or as some people would say I’m vertically challenged. In essence, I’m 5′ 2″. It doesn’t bother me that I’m this short. Nor is it a surprise, so when people I know blithely decide it’s time to inform me that I’m short – don’t get upset when I don’t act surprised.
2 – I love living on the coast. I grew up in a landlocked part of the country. Although I liked it, as was the case, I did not know any different. I had lived on the prairies all my life. It was my first trip to BC when I was in grade 9 when I realized that I loved the mountains and the green towering forests. Then later in life after I got married and my husband moved me to a small coastal town that I realized – I loved the ocean. I mean, I really love the ocean. I could spend every day at the shoreline and never get bored. Ever.
3 – I’m married. ‘Nuff said
4 – I am the youngest of 4 siblings
5 – I am over 50. Does that make me crotchety? 😉
6 – I have a dog. He is a fluffy, cute, adorable, braty American Eskimo breed of dog.
7 – I love cats but am terribly allergic to them.
8 – In the last year I stopped drinking coffee and tea. I drink mostly water.
9 – In the last year I started adjusting my diet and now find that I eat mostly vegetarian meals.
10 – I’m competitive. Then again – I’m the youngest of 4. That one is a bit of a no-brainer.
11 – I dye my hair. I went prematurely grey due to stress after my youngest son died.
12 – I work as a mortician.
13 – I try and listen to all sides of ‘the story’ before I make a decision.
14 – I want to one day become a professional writer and make a living writing.
15 – I have 3 books that I’m currently working on that are in one form or another – in stasis. The lil buggers do not seem to want to cooperate
16 – Although I like people, I’m at my happiest when I’m quiet and alone.
17 – I am my own worst critic.
18 – I have a stationary fettish. For some women it’s shoes or purses or clothes. For me, nothing makes my heart go pitter-pat faster and heavier than sticky notes ..and pens… and paperclips….and alligator clips….
19 – I try and learn at least one thing new every day. My grandmother always used to say: “Take a course. Read a book. Learn something every day and you’ll never get old.”
20 – I really don’t like poetry.
