Eight Random Things

I rarely participate in these, but since it was Laura who tagged me, I'm doing this for her.
First, the rules:
  1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
  2. People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules.
  3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.
  4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here you go:

  1. I learned to shoot a bow and arrow nine years ago from a former Olympic team trainer. I spent approximately two hours doing this and haven't touched a bow and arrow since then.
  2. I hate finishing projects. I always feel a bit of sadness when a project is complete so towards the end of projects I slow down drastically.
  3. My idea of the perfect home would be a cottage on a lake in the Pacific Northwest.
  4. Fifteen years ago, I was within 3 credits of an associates degree in piano performance. If I were to return to college now, I'd become a nurse.
  5. My husbands first wife is one of my best friends.
  6. My husband loves to write "I Love (heart symbol) You" with the tip of his finger on my leg at random times during the week. My heart still skips a beat when he does this.
  7. I've worn the same watch for eight years that I purchased at Macy's in Denver Colorado when I was on a business trip and my watch broke. I still get compliments on it although I only paid around $70 for it.
  8. I used to have severe acne until I tried a medication called isotretinoin (Accutane). I haven't had acne for almost ten years now and although I still have a few slight acne scars, this medication was worth its weight in gold!
And now to tag people. I hereby tag: nobody. I'm going against the rules on this one, but if you do want to do this, please do, and let me know.

In personal news, my health has been hit or miss lately. I got lucky enough to be feeling pretty good this weekend, so we babysat the grandkids while their parents went to parties for their friends who are getting married. We went to McDonald's (which the kids call MickeyDonald's) to play in the playland tubes & slides .. oh and I think we may have had a hamburger too. The youngest one didn't want to go down the slide, so grandpa showed him how it was done. They both came down following him. I'm sure glad I had the camera.

Thanks so much for sharing this list - it was so interesting reading through it and discovering new things about you! I *so* love #6, how very, very cute!
I hope you're feeling better, my friend!

Angelika said...

It's always interesting to learn more about knitting blog friends than what they have on the needles. I love the pic of Grandpa in a tube. :)Go show them how it's done.

Hasbu said...

I hope you're feeling better!

I love the pics of the kids and grandpa in the tube. :)

Karen said...

Awww, I love #6!!!! So romantic. :) I feel like I've done this meme a few times now, and can't imagine what I have left to reveal, so thanks for not tagging!! Hope you are feeling better for good.

KeanaLee said...

HMMM I'd like a cottage on the lake too!

Teyani said...

cottage on the lake? sounds fabulous.
Glad to hear that you were feeling a bit better - and I hope that trend continues.

Kathy said...

As a nurse, I am flattered. Join us. When the time is right for you. Knitters make great nurses.

Glad you felt well

Love your blog! My youngest daughter is seriously into archery, so I loved that fact...

Yarn It said...

I have no idea why I didn't comment when I first read these! I think it is wonderful and amazing that you are best friends with your husbands ex. That says a ton about both of you.

And the hear I heart you is just too sweet. I am so glad you too are happy.

The slide Pics are so cute. I hope you feel better soon.

Christine said...

GO GRANDPA! How cool is that? Love the pic. I remember trying to get my daughter to go into the tubes and she wasn't having ANY of that until my dad showed her it wasn't so bad. Good memories.

How sweet is your hubby? I heart you? awwwwwwww And very cool on the friends with the ex. The world would be a better place if more of us could do that.

I'm coming out to my cottage by you & Tiennie too! I'll bring the margarita mix for knitting into the sunset.
