Seven Things Meme

I was tagged for the Seven Things Meme by Kathy
The rules are:

  1. Share seven random facts about yourself, in your blog.
  2. Include these rules.
  3. Link back to the person who tagged you.
  4. Tag seven more people and list their names & blogs. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged.

Here are Seven Random Things about me:

  1. I was due on Christmas Eve and my name was supposed to be either Merry Christmas McClure or Christmas Noel McClure (or something equally horrid). Thank goodness I was born on New Year's Eve!
  2. I had a wooden leg named Gertrude when I was a senior in high school...Gertrude even made it into the VHS 1998 yearbook.
  3. My family has had an odd assortment of pets...pot bellied pigs, baby cows, a baby horse that was sick and hung out in our living room, watching Wheel of Fortune.
  4. I am terrified of hamsters. One crawled on my in my sleep as a teenager (my brothers had lost one that day) and I caught it under a cup, only to have it escape...Now, I really don't like the little guys.
  5. My secret desire is to have a perfect home with beautiful decorations. Instead I always have a load of laundry hanging out by the couch, a messy kitchen (not dirty, just cluttered), and no pictures on the walls or any great decorations to be seen.
  6. I love to be crafty, but hate certain crafts.
  7. I feel that I must check out the prices of big purchase items at ten different stores before I can settle on one. Example: Brennan and Jackson's Christmas items...I have searched every website twice for kids digital cameras and radio flyer tricycles.
I will tag only my sister, Jeni and Kris, because I think everyone else has been tagged already.

4 Words to brighten my day:

Kathy said...

Wow you are an interesting GAL!

Christmas is merry and so are you (or would have been!). I think you look like a Jessica-
Christmas... not so much. But I would have liked you either way!

That's a good list, I got tagged too, so I've got to put my thinking cap on.

Your 7 could surely be on my list. I get tired of looking at stuff, but I can't stand to think that I paid too much for something, or could have gotten something better at the same price. Our dryer is dying slowly, so we have started looking for a new one; I am not very excited about this.
