Seven Facts Meme

I've been tagged by Jan for a meme. Thanks, Jan, and I hope Dolly turns out to be pretty tame there in South Texas. Here are the rules:

a. List these rules on your blog.
b. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.

1. My husband and I honeymooned in Frederickberg, Texas. The place we stayed wasn't very nice. He LOVED the museum there--something about WW2, I forget exactly. I consider our "real" honeymoon to be our trip to the Canadian Rockies. We both enjoyed that.

2. When I was 17 I wrote an article for "Employer of the Year." My boss, John S., won based on my little essay.

3. I had a strange experience 3 days ago. As I was driving home from church I felt a strong calling to become a 2nd grade teacher. I'm still "processing" that one.

4. I lived in Plano, Texas for a number of years. Never again.

5. I was a switchboard operator for an electronics manufacturing company in my last year of high school. "Continental Telephone Electronics, may I help you?" Stayed there and took my first two years of college at night school.

6. My sister is Controller of her company in Greenville, South Carolina. She's amazing.

7. I played "Baby Elephant Walk" on the piano in 4th grade for my school's talent show. I remember thinking I was a real 'hit'!


c. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

Katherine, it's always fun to learn more about you! I used to be a 2nd grade teacher--but I don't think I have the energy to return to that at this stage in my life. 2nd graders are very sweet--young but becoming competent and in between "knowing" too much!

Maybe it's got something to do with the 2nd grade qualities your directees (at least one?) bring to the space? I didn't break anything today so that a good thing. If my back weren't hurting, I would haved liked to have done my little kid thing and sat at your feet : )

Love you!
