I've Been Tagged...

That's right - the lovely Tracy (AmboWife) had tagged me!! So here are the rules and what I have to do and what you have to do if I tag you!!

1.) Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2.) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3.) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4.) Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.Right here goes nothing.

My 7 facts about me, do you really want to know!! hee hee

1. I am Georgia born and Georgia raised. Only lived out of Georgia for about 2.5 years and that's when my oldest was born - in Jacksonville, Florida.

2. I am a widow - my husband and I were married July 1, 1995 and he died in a train accident on May 6th, 2003.

3. I used to be a dance teacher - first teaching baton and helping the dance teacher with all the other stuff. And recently have gotten into teaching Country Line Dancing - although haven't done much of that since my little one came along.

4. I have never broken a limb or bone - although I did get my foot caught in bicycle spokes and about cut me big toe off when I was about 5 or 6.

5. I am a big Nascar fan. Go Kasey Kahne......

6. I have two step-sons from my first marriage - and the oldest has two kids - a boy and a girl - so that makes me somewhat of a Grandma. But I told them to call me Nana - just didn't feel right being called Grandma. hee hee

7. I am 6.5 years older than my current dh.

Been busy all day trying to pack and trying to get some graduation invitations done for someone. Printing them out as I am typing this - and then I have to cut them.... Have to deliver tomorrow morning on my way out of town. Not to mention packing for out trip, going to my nephew's baseball game. Let's see what haven't I done today. Oh yeah - dh and I started on the Chantix pill two days ago. That's a pill to help you stop smoking. I am soooo hoping that it works. The first three days are a low dosage to get your body ready for it. Then after that it's full force!! hee hee Well, we will see. Well, I will post again when we get back. We will be back Sunday.

Personality Test...

I found this Personality Test on someone else's blog and thought why not!! So here's what it said!!

You Are An INFJ

The Protector

You live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity.

Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision - no matter what it is.

You are an excellent listener, with almost infinite patience.

You have complex, deep feelings, and you take great care to express them.

In love, you truly see relationships as an opportunity to connect and grow.

You enjoy relationships as long as they are improving and changing. You can't stand stagnation.

At work, you stay motivated and happy... as long as you are working toward a dream you support.

You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.

How you see yourself: Hardworking, ethical, and helpful

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Manipulative, weak, and unstable

Hmmm - so, what personality type are you?
