Six random things about me.

Blame Beth. She tagged me and I'll have guilt if I don't comply. Resisting Beth doesn't work out for me. Ever.

Here are the rules:

1.Post the rules on your blog
2.Write 6 random things about yourself
3.Tag 6 people at the end of your post
4.If you are tagged, just do it, and pass the tag along!

Here goes...

Eins. At one time I spoke nearly-fluent German. In college, I took so many Deutsch classes, it was almost my minor. As of today, I can remember slightly more than squat. Auf Deutsch? Ein Bisschen.

Zwei. I have so much to blog about my brain just may explode but so lack the prioritization skills as to even know where to start. When I think I WILL start, the mountain of clothes in the laundry room glares at me with such distain and disgust I chicken out.

Drei. I am currently forgoing coffee and wine on the weekdays (except in very specific circumstances) in an effort to 1. lose some weight. 2. prove to myself that I really DO have SOME self restraint.

Vier. I'm married to the most amazing man on the planet. Period. Anyone who knows us, all we've been through in the last 12 months, and where we are now can only emphatically nod their heads in agreeable abandon. There are some SLIGHTLY less amazing men out there, sure, but my James? He's the KING of the great men of his generation. So there. Now you know. Feel free to laud him openly.

Fünf. One reason I love this time of year is because the weather is still mostly sunny, but cold enough to have fires at night. I ADORE FIRES! Were it up to me, when it's just a little too warm for fireplace activity, I'd open all the windows in the house and build a fire anyway.

Sechs. I am the most grateful woman in the known universe. See "nummer vier" and the little beauties on the right below.

SO, that's it. All my over-tired gray matter can produce at the moment. For both of you who come here on purpose, I do hope to ACTUALLY blog again some time soon. Hi, Mom!

Now tagging:

Lisa B.
Angelina (though I seriously doubt you'll do this)
Wendy (since you've done a zillion of these things... lets say... list the six strangest things you've eaten on purpose!)

I know that's only four people, but I just don't have that many blog friends. See, you have to actually WRITE for people to want to be blog buddies with you. *sniff*

Good thing I'm not hung up on my virtual popularity! LOL!

Happy Monday, Y'all!

Ha funny. I am so with you on the fire thing. Our fireplace is crap so most of the heat escapes up the flu (while for some strange reason the smoke likes to stay in the living room) and I still make them all the time.

And thanks for giving me the exception. I'll have to think on that one for a bit.

Wow. That much German? At least you know how to put the umlaut over the u in funf. I can't even do that. I'm doing well to remember how to spell umlaut.
