40 Things

Sarah (not Amanda) tagged me to list 40 things about myself that you all may not know, so here goes...

  1. I was born in Quebec.
  2. I've lived in 4 provinces - Quebec, Ontario, BC and Alberta
  3. I almost moved to Manitoba and lived in a camper for a summer (Thankfully Marlin got a job in AB and we didn't move).
  4. Marlin and I have been together for 13 years but only married for 3.
  5. Technically, I was the one to propose.
  6. I wanted to shear sheep for a living but didn't think I was strong enough.
  7. I know how to spin wool.
  8. I can fall asleep on the living room floor in less than 5 minutes on any given afternoon.
  9. I like to go to bed early.
  10. I am not a morning person.
  11. I am always cold.
  12. I hate being the first person in bed - it is cold!
  13. I completed a triathlon.
  14. I used to swim competitively.
  15. I can play the flute and trombone.
  16. I used to work at a garbage transfer station.
  17. I have my bellybutton pierced.

  20. I hate being in debt.
  21. I've never had a job for more than a few years.

  24. I love to stay home and do nothing.
  25. I hate cleaning.
  26. I thought being self employed would be way too scary to ever do.

Yes, it's a very lovely picture of you. What's with us ladies crying when we are madder than hell? Doesn't make much sense but it seems to happen to the best of us. I'm totally with you on #27.
