A meme for me

March Day tagged me with this meme! I like to be tagged, cause I like to be picked for stuff. But being tagged doesn't mean I will do it. I believe in freedom of choice for things like this...

Here are my 8 random facts:

1. I recently had the best day of my life. After almost two years of saying "I love you!" to Dillon every day, every night at bedtime, and numerous times after scolding him (ha!) he put his hands on either side of my face and said "I loh LUU, mama!" He must have been practicing when I wasn't around!

2. I want to open a therapy center for kids with autism. We don't have one in our area, and I think it would do so well! I just need some money to start with - donations, anyone?

3. I got my first job at a grocery store when I was 16. I didn't even tell my parents at first, but it was kind of hard to explain six hours of absence every day after school!

4. When someone tries to erase with a pencil that has no eraser, and the metal part touches the paper and scrapes across it, I have a very physical reaction that causes me to retch and cough. I have never actually thrown up from that, but I have come close, so don't push it.

5. I love to be tan, but I won't go to a tanning bed, and I don't have time to be in the sun. Once I got a spray-on tan, but it was too orange, and too expensive. So I am resigned to paleness.

6. This summer, I am addicted to Ellen. She is so funny, without being mean. How can you not like her???

7. Yesterday, I spent six hours on the tile floor of a bathroom, holding a student on the toilet while we watched movies and read magazines. Everything "came out okay," and we count the venture as a success. Except that my tailbone is bruised.

8. No tattoos or extra piercings here, but I used to wear a toe-ring that my dad thought was the biggest disgrace EVER.

I am not tagging anyone, so I guess I am not playing correctly, but again, freedom of choice!!! Tell us some random stuff about YOU!

I had no idea about #3! I always knew you had an inner rebel.

#4 nearly made me retch at the thought.

You watched movies while poor little thing got ring around her bottom waiting for success?

Used to wear a toe ring. Didja just give it up quietly cuz I haven't noticed your toe bling missing.

#1 - Oh my gosh, that just happened with Jadyn tonight! I was away for 4 days and after I got home and we played a little, I looked at her and said, "I love you" and she said, "I luh yoo" back! I picked her up and cried. Couldn't have asked for a nicer welcome-home gift.

Let me know when you open that therapy center for kids with autism. We might just move to Texas!
