It's very hard for me to imagine that there could be anything unimportant concerning myself. I'll have to think of this as six things about me, or I'll be stumped.
1 - I may need bifocals. What do they call them now? Progressive lenses. I always love it when terms get repackaged so they don't sound depressing.
2 - I'm hoping to add a hydrangea shrub to the yard this year.
3 - When my sister and I were kids we shared a room, and my mom painted it to look like a garden, with a fence, a few flowers and an 'ABC' scattered over the wall. This was in the mid-70's when girls' rooms were rather basic. Certainly hand-painted wall murals or floating text was not usual then. Our mom has always been out-there.
4 - As a girl, I was allergic to anything with fur or feathers, so there were no pets for me. But after two series of allergy shots, and time passing, and allergies changing, I'm good with dogs. Not cats, unfortunately. So I've had two dogs in my life: Nikki, a husky/Samoyed mix during high school and my 20's, and my current dog Xena, a beagle/NS duck toller mix.
5 - If the no-smoking-in-bars-and-clubs thing had been in force when I was in my 20's, I would have danced the night away every weekend.
6 - I don't like to wear wristwatches. My dad was obsessed with watches. He looked at his own about 100 times a day, and often bought me watches. Then he'd ask me, "Where's that watch I got you?" And I'd pull it out of my pocket where I kept it instead of on my wrist. The last watch he bought me was a nurse's watch, a sort-of pocket watch that pins onto a uniform. He tracked me down at work and gave it to me. Because apparently I couldn't make it through another moment without my new watch! But I do love it. When I saw it, I felt so happy that he'd finally figured out that a pocket watch was what I really wanted.
And now, the tagging:
