Thanks, SMK.

(That's Swim Mom Knits for those who were wondering)

She tagged me for a meme.

Here it is:
Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog. Here are my facts:

1. I have issues with parking. I can only park straight if I turn left into the space. Ask any of the Maryland girls- they will tell ya how true it is.

2. I have a love/hate relationship with the weather, namely bad weather. I'm amazed at strong thunderstorms and tornadoes, yet fear them to death. I live less than one mile from a neighborhood that was demolished by a rare tornado and I swear some day the same thing is going to happen. (Yes, I laugh at this thought too). Anyways, spring is coming and I constantly check the weather channel for updates. No, I'm not planning outside activities, it's just precautionary. 1:24 pm UPDATE! There's a tornado watch for my state. GRREEEAAAT. Just what I needed (to fuel the obsession.)

3. Along with the left-turn only rule when parking, I have to park in the same general area if it's a place I go to often- for example: when I go to class, I park in the left side parking lot, in the first row. But because of the left hand parking rule, I need to go down the second row and circle back down the first row. If I park anywhere else, I never find my car.

4. I cry when I see shows about charities, especially if the involve school children getting new things. If I was a millionaire, I wouldn't be for long because I'd just go around buying stuff for kids.

5. I leave change in (or around) gumball machines for kids to find. When I was a kid my mom never gave us money for gumballs and my sister and I would search for lost change on the floor near the gumball machines while my mom checked out. When we'd find some, it was like magic! I think there needs to be more magic in kid's lives. If it costs me 75 cents, it's worth it.

6. I'm super selfish about my birthday, which is coming up on the 23rd. Hubs is going to be on a business trip and I'm afraid to ask people to watch the boy so that I can go out with friends. I know I'm going to be stuck at home, alone, feeling pathetic. This fills me with a mix of anger and depression, to the point that I don't even want to think of next week.

7. I have issues with random noises- namely dogs barking and the mystery alarm that goes off daily, but no one seems to be able to tell where it comes from. This morning the alarm blared at 5:42 am. We had the windows open to let in the cool spring air and I swear I thought a bomb was going to go off and the noise was an air raid siren. That didn't go well.

Um, I need 7 people to tag.

How about-
and Marla (You are still alive for real, right?)

Basically, that list is New Haven SnB blog hop. Enjoy. (There's more too!)

I wished I lived close enough to watch your boy. You should get to celebrate your way on your birthday!

I am the same way with parking or else I would wander aimlessly looking for my car.

I'm off from work on your birthday. Let's go get ice cream or something...and that way you don't need to find someone to watch your son. And why isn't the Yarn Garden sale on your birthday?!

I can watch the boy during the day so you can go out with baby beth. But I have to give him back to you by 4pm so I can go to work. I am sure some one can take him at night.

Come on girls!!!
