I have been nominated for the Liebster Award!  I would like to thank Nicolle at Stories of a Highly Sensitive Introvertfor the nomination!  By now, most of you know how these things work.  But for those that don’t, these are the rules:

Here are Nicolle’s 11 questions and my answers:

  1. What is your favorite memory?

Probably the sweetest, most loving memory I have is of me as a little girl.  I was probably 5 or 6 years old. I had my head on my mother’s lap and she is lovingly stroking my hair.  I was happy, secure and loved.  (a child’s version of heaven!)

Dandy!  🙂

I had leftover Hamburger Helper.

6. When was the last time you cried, and why?

I cried the last time I watched an episode of This Is Us.  Damn!  That show makes me cry Every Time!

7. The funniest joke you heard?

I really can’t think of a funny joke.  I don’t remember jokes for some reason.  But the funniest video I’ve ever seen is here:  It’s the video of a cop behind the wheel with a Dash cam recording him.

8. Do you have any pets?

Yes!  I have a sweet little dog named Rocket!

9. Your favorite song?

An old song.  “I Can See Clearly Now”  It’s such a Happy song!

10. Who inspires you the most?

Probably the biggest, most consistent inspiration in my life has been my BFF, Denise.  She has a Huge heart and has had many adversities in her life to overcome.  Yet, she remains strong and positive.  She has always been my biggest cheerleader.

11. What are your hobbies?

I crochet and dabble in various craft projects.

11 Random Facts About Me:   11? Really?  🙂 That’s a lot!  

  1. I wanted to be a boy SO bad when I was a little kid.  My mom told me that if I could kiss my elbow I would magically turn into a boy!  Ever try to kiss your elbow?  I spent a lot of time trying!
  2. I don’t like tomatoes or strawberries!  I know, so weird, right?
  3. My nickname for a while was “6 Cents”.  Try to figure THAT out!  🙂
  4. I dropped out of school when I was 16.
  5. Coffee addict!
  6. I’ve been writing stories and poems since I was in grade school, but never took writing seriously until about 5 or 6 years ago.  Now it’s a passion!
  7. For YEARS, I SERIOUSLY wanted to own one of the Big Cats.  My favorite, a cougar.  I researched it and dreamed of it obsessively.  Now, there’s no way.  Imaging the litter box!  🙂
  8. I smoked cigarettes for years and finally quit.  When I was finally able to quit, I was smoking more than 2 packs a day.  ewwww!  Right?
  9. I learned to sew on a treadle sewing machine and could sew before I ever took homemaking in school.
  10. A family story… I don’t know if it’s true.  I was told that I learned my ABC’s and learned to read from the back of a Prince Albert tobacco can.  (there used to be a story on the back)  I could read well before I ever started school.  (thank you mom!)
  11. I bit my nails until I was 20 years old.  Ewwww, again.  Right?  🙂
