Tag! You're it!

Hmmm..I'v never been 'tagged' before.

Well, at least not since grade school..... I wonder why they call it "grade school" anyway. You're ALWAYS in a 'grade' aren't you...??

OK, back to being tagged. Seems like when I was in grade school I was always "IT". And that wasn't always a good thing. But now, it seems kinda fun!

Penny over at has tagged me to tell 7 unknown things about myself.

Unknown to you, not unknown to me..........because I couldn't really tell myself any unknowns about me - because I wouldn't know them....duh......

Anyway, sounds like fun so here goes:

1. I had all 4 of my kids natural - 2 of them were 10 pounders - and I wasn't being brave - just young and stupid!

2. can;t tpye owrth a drn...or spel..or youse spelsheck

3. Just got, for the very first time in my life, a BRAND NEW CAR! All mine! Well, mine and the bank's, for a while.... and I named it the Silver Pearl!

4. Had my photo on the jumbo-tron in Times Square with my name and that I was from Utah. ! It was a Yahoo photo contest for Halloween and I was "Mimi" from the Drew Carey show. Talk about your 15 minutes of fame!

5. I stumbled onto the Notre Dame football practice field and actually met and had my picture taken with Coach Lou Holtz..(.....and I had NO idea who he was...) in the Notre Dame bookstore!

6. Once, broke and newly divorced, my car lost it's transmission and could only go in reverse. I was double parked in front of my kid's school and couldn't afford a tow truck. With no other viable options, I drove home, 5 blocks, backwards! And parked nicely in front of my house, thank you very much!

7. At this particular time, this is my favorite T-shirt:

So, there you have it. All you ever wanted to know about me but had no idea you wanted to know.....

And, I think I'm supposed to nominate 7 others. I think. So here goes:

Well, thank you, Colleen!! Hmm, I will have to think long and hard on this one. I'm not sure that any of my unknown things are as exciting as yours!! But, I will give a fair go and see what I come up with. Loved the story of your dad and wheat pennies. It's funny the things we usually pick up from our parents are not flashy or spectacular- just impressive in the sense that they have been impressed in our memories, waiting for us to remember them. It was a beautiful tribute to the humble, sweet things that parents give to their children.
