8 Things About Me Meme

Esther has tagged me for the following meme: 8 Things about Me. - I think are Interesting................

“Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.”

1. I was a Navy brat and went to 4 elementary schools: Naples, Italy; Pensacola, FL; Kansas City, MO; and Nanakuli, Hawaii. 3 Jr hi schools: Pearl City, Hawaii; Council Bluffs, Iowa; San Diego, CA. ONE High School: San Diego. One undergrad College: SDSU. One Grad college – University of Dallas (see #6 below)

2. Because I lived all over, I don’t have a “best friend that I’ve had all my life.”
It sometimes bothers me that I don’t even have a “best friend”; just a few “good friends”. There are a couple friends I would like to say were my best friend, but since I know I am not THEIR best friend, well…I think it is supposed to go both ways... so, they are missing out! However, I do have 3 cousins that I think are very close friends that I have known all my life. But they all live in Iowa.

3. I had emergency surgeries 6 weeks after having BOTH of my (birthed) babies. [James is adopted]
After Katherine I had emergency D&C for these huge blood clots that were coming out – and I had severe cramping pains- worse than labor?– because some placenta got left behind.
After Derek I had emergency Gall Bladder removal. I thought I was having a Heart Attack and we called 911. [Got to ride in ambulance for 1st time; Was in hospital 4 days]
Both times my mom took my babies home with her and cared for them. Luckily I did not lose ability to breast feed, because…..

4. I LOVED breastfeeding my babies. Katherine nursed for 22 months; Derek 26 months. [maybe i was a wet-nurse in former life]

5. I inherited good genes for great eyesight, hearing, and I get many compliments on my hair and fingernails… to which I reply “I have good genes.”

6. I have a Master’s in Theology from IRPS – University of Dallas. It took 3 years of one weekend a month to complete here in San Diego. It was a combo of teachers from the Diocese of SD and the professors from UD flying in to teach.

7. My husband & I worked at the same law firm. We were friends before we dated.
On our first official date I told him I was looking for a husband and wanted kids. If he didn’t want the same then there was no reason to go on another date. (I was 23, he was 31)

8. last one……. OK I confess I’m addicted to TV. I love my DVR. Plus my DVD recorder – so I can record shows on DVD forever!! Very helpful for kids to watch TV shows in the car. I love reality & competition shows…. Miami Ink – about tattooing, (YEAH – Kat will have her own show LA Ink in Aug); Run’s House, Top Chef, Top Design, Girls Next Door, and Oprah and Martha. Also hospital shows: Grey’s Anatomy, ER, House. Discovery Health, History Channel. The Planet Earth Show was awesome. Digging for the Truth, 1,000 places to See Before You Die. Travel Channel’s Samantha Brown. Food Channel: Unwrapped. I’m a night owl and usually stay up hours after everyone has gone to sleep and watch TV until 12 or 1 a.m.

OK - I've looked around and found most everyone has already done this.

I didn't know you had ties to Hawaii. Cool :-) Thanks for playing. I enjoyed reading your list. BTW, I worked in a law office for 12 years.
