I've Been Tagged...

I've been tagged by Sarah to share 7 interesting or weird things about me. Sometimes I feel like the most boring person on the planet, but I'll give it a try. : )

1. I'm completely blind in my left eye and have been since birth. That eye is much smaller than my other one and very sensitive to light, so I'm usually squinting in any picture taken of me.

2. I used to sleep walk a lot as a kid/teenager. For some reason I stopped doing it as I got older, but I'm still afraid it will start up again, and I'll do something really weird in my sleep. Most of my best embarrassing moments stories resulted from sleep walking.

3. I'm an all-or-nothing kind of person. I either work-out for two hours a day or I do nothing. My house is either "Better Homes and Gardens-ish" or it looks like Hurricane Katrina moved through. Hardly ever a middle ground for me. I'm working on that. : ) (current status of house: Hurricane Aftermath) Working on that, too. : )

4. I'm addicted to coffee and my favorite place to get it is Dutch Brothers. There is a Dutch Brothers a block a way from my house now. I'm in big trouble! : )

5. I acted in school plays in High School and college and won some awards for acting during High School. I miss it. Someday I think it would be so fun to be in a play again.

6. I am a telephone phobic. I would much rather speak to a gymnasium full of people than have to call someone on the phone. I get soooooo nervous and am usually hugely relieved when I get an answering machine.

7. Since my childhood, writing a book has been my dream. I can't count how many stories I've started or how many lists of characters' names I made as a kid and even as an adult. I had dreams of being the next Francine Rivers, but God had different plans for me and led me to write a non-fiction book instead. I finished it in August and am praying He will use it somehow to comfort women who have gone through pregnancy loss.

OK...That's me....

It's your turn:

That was definitely less than boring! I always enjoy reading some of the things people may not know.
And being in TN I totally miss Dutch Bros. Enjoy a coffee for me sometime! Thanks for sharing.

Wow, you tagged me, I totally didn't expect that. OK, I'll work on mine today.

BTW, I'm a bit of a telephone-phobe too. I hate making calls, even to a best friend I can talk to for hours. When I'm calling someone I don't know well I'm usually chanting "Please get voicemail, I'm totally ok with voicemail."

That is funny about the phone thing. I don't like answering machines. My friends are always asking me "why didn't you leave a message?". I just don't like talking unless it is to a person.

Talking to a big crowd??? That is one of my big fears!!!!! I don't like that at all!!!

I hope you are feeling better soon!

Okay Beck, I'll give it a try, I don't know how to do the link thing though! I can just put in your blog address I guess.
