7 Random Things

I've been tagged to do the "7 Random Things About Me" meme. Funny how when I read other folks' responses I realize I am more odd (and in some ways less) than I thought.

So here goes...

  1. I must sit facing the room in a restaurant. I have asked friends, family, and people I've just met to get up and move to another chair to accommodate my need to sit with my back against a wall. Thankfully, my husband has learned to wait patiently while I choose a chair before sitting down.

  2. I do not eat hamburgers. You can imagine how much difficulty this caused while growing up and attending barbecues.

  3. I get motion sickness very easily. Very. To mitigate this, I usually drive with the air conditioning on full blast no matter what the outside temperature is. The resulting frigid car temperature does not usually pose a problem here in the desert.

  4. I'm good at math. I suck at remembering geography. My husband always beats me at Trivial Pursuit because I can't ever seem to earn the blue wedge.

  5. I have very little depth perception. I will walk right into something at eye level never having seen it. Being short greatly improves my odds of walking into something at eye level.

  6. I like scrapbooking supplies. I don't really like to scrapbook. I have boxes and boxes of papers, embellishments, and tools I will probably never use.

  7. My dream is to one day live close enough to the ocean so that when I open up my windows, I can hear the sound of the surf rolling in. I guess I'm a water bug at heart.

Almost Over

After four long months of construction, we are finally back in our house as I type this post. Boxes abound with items to put away and inches of dust have settled, but we are sleeping in our own newly delivered bed at last.

Now, all that's left is to figure out what I did with my Clapotis-in-progress. I know it's around here somewhere....

Thank you to all who offered words of support and encouragement over the last few months. Your love and friendship have made us feel blessed, indeed.
