Now seven things about me...

1. I hate to shop for clothing, especially bras!
2. I've known my husband since I was 10 years old, our 21st anniversary is this year.
3. I have two sons and one grandson.
4. I love to play cards, dominoes and word games.
5. I do not drink coffee and rarely drink alcohol. I once (when I was much younger and dumber) got so drunk I couldnt find my way home driving the back roads. It wouldnt be so bad had I not lived in that small town all my life. Once I finally made it, I was so upset I vowed I would never get drunk again.
6. I have a problem throwing things away. I have to keep my hoarding tendencies in check or things could easily get out of control.
7. I love to watch football, baseball, hockey, cage fighting, bull riding, nascar racing but do not like basketball!

  4. Thanks for taking the tag! I have a question for you. If you don't drink coffee, what did you have the day we met at the coffee shop? I'm sure I had coffee, but maybe you had tea?

    1. Good grief how am I supposed to remember that? lol IF I wasnt drinking a soda (, then yes I was drinking tea. I will drink one of those Starbucks Frappuccino Mocha iced coffees once in a while. Is those considered coffee?
