Tag You Are It!

I don't know how this all works, but I'll just go along :) My dear friend Margie tagged me a few days ago and I've been thinking on what 7 things I could share that wouldn't completely bore people to tears. Here we go....

1. I am deaf in my right ear and partially deaf in my left ear. No news to my family, but a few friends weren't aware of this. I had a hole in my inner ear as a child and thus complete hearing lose in the right ear. It definitely made for some interesting balancing issues as a child that unfortunately didn't cease to exist even though the hole is no more! :) Perhaps that just pure clumsiness.

2. I have groves in my tonsils that of late have been wrecking havoc in my throat. Just this year has this been a problem. These grooves can act as a catch all for things that should be going directly down my throat, stopping no where in between. Nevertheless things get caught and form these icky balls of white in the back of my throat. I can pop them out using a q-tip and away they go. Hopefully as time goes on I won't be so groovy. :) Aren't you sooooo glad I shared that? And then doubly glad you don't have to kiss me?

3. My Mom works overseas with a company that services the troops. I am going to cheat a little and share an interesting something about her! She has been able to work closely with some of the major players in the war. She has a picture of her and General David Petraeus as well as one with her and Dick Cheney. Believe it or not my 5' 7" mother is taller than Dick by a good few inches!

4. I spent 10 weeks or so the summer of 1999 in Kenya working with Africa Inland Missions. I lived with a local family and taught in the elementary schools there. I taught math, science and Christian/Religious education. Where we were they was no running water and no electricity. I went to the bathroom in a fancy port-o-potty, you know a simple whole in the floor over a dug out pit. I bathed each day using a small amount of water in a container - sponge bath really. Although I have to say I did manage to keep my legs shaved the entire time I was there! :) It was an awesome experience.

5. I want have 4 children. Don't ask, I can't explain. I simply want to have an even number of children. So when we decided to have #3 I said there must be a #4. Interestingly one of my favorite cousins said the very same thing before I even told her what I was thinking :) Great minds think alike.

6. I love to read. Not so interesting, but oh so true. I tend to lean toward christian fiction, although I do read some non-fiction from time-to-time. Some of my favorite authors are Karen Kingsbury, Bodie & Brock Thoene, Beverly Lewis, Caroline Hart (Henry O series in particular).

7. I am a part-time chemistry tutor for in the evenings. I know, a secret identity that has my loved ones shocked. :) It keeps me on my toes and helps me to not lose all that I worked so hard for in college. It is a nice change from diaper duty and little people chat. It has its moments though and can be interesting.
Well, that is more than enough info. Sadly after Margie tagged me and another girlfriend that left me with no one else I knew who blogged. So the game of tag stops here I'm afraid. If someone I love starts blogging I'll share the love. K, I need to run. The kiddos have been awful quiet and we all know that spells trouble. :)

How funny, My friend who tagged me has a whole network of bloggers that she knows yet she decided to tag me who knows very few people. Anyway, I have to tonsil thing too so don't feel too grossed out. Drives me nuts in the winter.
