7 Interesting Things About Me

Jen over at "Pieces of Me" tagged me. This is a "toot your own horn" challenge, so the rules of the tag are that you have to post 7 interesting things about yourself. And then you have to tag 7 other bloggers to toot their horns. So, here goes:

1. I'm a bit of a work-a-holic. Except for a couple of maternity leaves, I've worked pretty much continuously since I was 14 years old. I've been in my current stint for 18 years.

2. I make pretty babies - big ones too! 8.6 lbs and 10 lbs. Even my stepson was a 9 pounder. I love those big babies. You get the tummy full and they sleep forever! Matt slept throught the night at 3 weeks!

3. I was proud to be an Olympic Volunteer. I am a huge Olympic fan and with it right in my backyard, I was determined to be right in the thick of it. I was actually one of the costumed Mascots shown in this picture. Can't tell you which one though - it's a closely guarded secret.

4. I am a compulsive reader and a fast one too! Now that I stamp, I don't read like I used to, but I used to read everything I could get my hands on, over and over gain. My sister used to play a dirty trick on me. She'd wait until I was visiting our parents for the weekend, then she'd give me some great book, but tell me that I had to read it before I went home, so I'd spend my every minute of my weekend trying to speed read the book instead of visiting with my parents.

5. When I was in High School and college, I worked behind the scenes in the theater. I was a lighting designer, a spotlight operator, and a stage manager. I did about 20 different shows.

6. I've been married for almost 25 years and the thing I'm most proud of is that I've never lied to my husband. Never. Not even about how many stamps I buy. If he wants to know, I show him the receipt and then tell him to bug off!

7. My favorite movie is While You Were Sleeping. I could watch that one over and over again.
