Tagged – 6 Things about Me !

I have been tagged by Toni at  she tagged me and 5 others.

6 ,yes Six things about me , there is no order of importance !

1. I am an excessive planner – I have a planner and use it faithfully. I plan vacations, holidays , decorating and everything else. I like to research and learn about everything I am planning. I love it when everything has been thought out and planned – it make me happy !

2. I moved about 26 times between fifth grade and my senior year of high school. I lived most of the time in California but also Nevada,Oregon and finally Colorado. My mom has a thing about not being in a home longer then 6 months….she still is moving – in fact I don’t even have an address on her at the current moment (she lives in another state). I have lived in my small home in the country for 20 years this September. I love living in the same place !

3. I am married to my high school sweetheart. My hubby is three years older – so I was almost 16 when I met him and he was barely 19 ( my daughter said the other day - “isn’t that illegal ??” LOL.) We are celebrating out 25th Wedding Anniversary in September.  We have 3 children they are my son 20 and daughters 18 and 14.  Yes , I lived through having 3 teenagers at one time  ! We started young so I feel young at 42 !

4. I am hyper ! I must be doing something all the time. I can’t watch t.v. without being on the computer or reading a book or quilting…I have to have lots of stuff going on at one time.

5. I am legally blind in my right eye. So, if I sit next to you on your left side – I can’t see you, – comes in really handy sometimes, LOL! People can’t tell for the most part because my eyes follow each other. It is a birth defect and inoperable. I can’t do Lasik surgery on my “good” eye, can’t wear contacts because if anything happened to my good eye I would be blind.  My depth perception stinks so I really have had to practice my driving skills. I do not repeat, do not park in parking garages…I am so glad that we only have 2 in the nearest town. Major scary for me – those garages !  I like to sit on the right side of a theatre – its my middle…I also like to sit at the end of a long table – so I can see everyone a little easier….On the other hand ya know that girl at the office that nobody wants to sit next to her – she can sit on my right hand side….LOL – just kidding…..I love to give and take lots of “one eyed jokes “. I can dish it and take it !

6. Create and think and create and think….my mind goes and goes and goes (see number 4 –the Hyper part) I love to do things myself – I love to paint, scrapbook,paper craft, embroidery ,sew, tablescape, quilt, decorate, and cook. I have my own little “studio” with just my stuff to do all this stuff.

Oh, and I am certainly not a writer by any means ( keep this in the back of your head when reading my stuff, please ! )

I wish I was a planner! Mostly I wing it!

Great Goodwill/thrift finds in the posts below. I have a very nice Goodwill by me that I like to stop in once a week. I always find something.

Thanks for stopping by to see my porch and thrifty makeovers. It's nice to meet you!

I love all your treasures. I too live in a rural setting and don't have many visitors. I live on a farm in WV. Most of my friends and family live about 25 miles away. I love seeing how other people are decorating their homes on their blogs. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY MY SPACE AND LEAVING COMMENT. BLESSINGS, DEANIE

Hi Kammy, Thanks for letting me get to know you a little better!

My Mom moved us around alot when I was a kid too. Thats probably why I've been in the same house now for over 25 years! I'm thinking I might be ready for a change now though lol!

Florida Sue said...

That's very nice Kammy. I keep telling you that you have a beautiful smile, now I know about your eye too! I am still married to the same guy that I married at 19, so I like to think that I am a young grandmother. I am glad that you passed this along to my friend Lori. I learned a few new things about her too!

BECKY said...

It was great to get to know a few things about you, gal!! I need to catch some of your planning thing!! I'm awesome with a deadline, but if it is open ended, it could be a problem!! Thanks for sharing, sweetie!!

Hope your week is going well!!
Blessings and hugs,
