7 Things You've Never Wanted to Know and Were Not Afraid to Ask

Mrs. Mordecai tagged me for a meme on "7 Random and or Weird Facts about yourself " (I guess that is in addition to the 8th weird fact already known - that I AM weird!)

This is my first meme, so here's hoping I do it correctly (I'm kind of lacking in sleep due to a dd that thought it would be fun to get up in the middle of the night and read in the bathroom for 1/2 hour...and every mom knows you can't sleep when your kids are lurking around in the middle of the night...and if I wake up for more than 10 min in the night I have a very hard time getting back to sleep...and then I woke up to clumping sounds at 5:50 AM and found the kids with their light on????). OK enough excuses.

Here are the rules:
  1. Link to the person who tagged you;
  2. Leave a comment on their blog so that their readers can visit yours;
  3. Post the rules on your blog;
  4. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog;
  5. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post;
  6. Include links to their blogs;
  7. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Here are 7 random and/or weird facts about myself:

1. I am an ex-Canadian…and yes you can be a former one…I had to officially RENOUNCE my Canadian citizenship to become an American.
2. I have 4 sister – no brothers.
3. I am very opinionated.
4. In spite of number 3, I am very much an introvert.
5. Until I was married, I had never traveled more than 4 hrs from home. Now I live 17 hrs from home, and in a different country.
6. I hope some day we can sell our home, buy an RV, live in it full-time, and travel to every US state and then to travel to every Canadian province.
7. I didn’t learn to drive until I was 27 and married (my dh, shall I say, strongly encouraged me to get my license. One of the best things he ever did!).
8. I'm cheating and adding a third - I love to play Scrabble!

I am now going to tag:

1. Chickadee at A Familiar Path

2. Meredith at Like Merchant Ships

3. Monica at The Homespun Heart

Hey, it looks like you figured it out! Those are fun facts about yourself. I'm an opinionated introvert, too!
