7 Things

(Artwork by the talented Jen Corace)

I was tagged by another blogger and so here are "7 Things About Me". If you are reading this consider yourself tagged as well.
7 Things About Me
1. I love room service!!! It's one of the first things I start thinking about the minute I check in to a hotel. It's like having your own personal chef - which I've always dreamed of.
2. I can fly a plane - well sort of - even though I've had no formal lessons I know the basics. I learned from a family friend.
3. I was in the Army Reserves for 3 years and can shoot various weapons - drive a deuce in a half - and throw a grenade with a pretty good measure of skill.
4. I love being a stay at home mom and have never for one minute felt belittled by it or less of a contributor in our families lives.
5. When I was 12 years old I caught a baby rattle snake and put it in a mayonnaise jar - much to parents horror.
6. My childhood nickname is "Beanie". There are a few variations - my mom calls me Sabeanie, my two nieces call me Auntie Beanie and my dad sometimes just calls me Bean.
7. Gestures of kindness mean the world to me!!

I love your number 1 comment... does Mom count as being our personal chef when we were little. What about tapping on glasses on the table when we wanted more milk... now that's service. Anyway, I don't remember the rattle snake but I thought it would be fun to comment about 7 things about you...

1. You always know what I'm thinking
2. You always laugh at my jokes, no matter how dumb
3. You can remember things about our childhood that I can't
4. You made my life easier, being the 3rd child I didn't get into as much trouble.
5. You always help me remember who I 'really' am, even when I don't.
6. You let me use your house as a retreat when things are rough (enough said)
7. You think I'm fabulous.

Love you

There's some inspiration for me to get the desk cleaned off and organized. Actually I have TWO messy desks.

About the 7 things -
#1 - Gosh, I don't think I've ever ordered room service. Gotta do that. A personal chef would be insanely great!
#2 - I'd want you along during an emergency.
#3 - A woman that knows her way around a weapon! Woo Hoo!
#4 - And you shouldn't. Those of us who were in the women's movement from the beginning fought so that you and other women could have a choice. And for me it was all about choice.
#5 - HA HA HA HA HA. Your poor parents!
#6 - Nicknames can be evil. It's apparent you were indeared by yours. Good.
#7 - This is huge in the scheme of things. My friend had a horrible personal tragedy last year and recently a clerk at the grocery store acknowledged her with some kind and gentle words. These gestures can mean everything to a person and you never know the ripple effects of your kindnesses.
