Newbie Blog Hop = Award


A huge thank you to Jessica at Tales-of-a-First-Grade-Teacher for awarding my blog the Versatile Blogger award. 
Here are my 7 random facts:
1. I played the trombone in marching band, the mellophone in a drum corps, and the flute as part of a community chorus.
2. I hate, hate, hate for anyone to touch my feet.
3 I amuse myself...sometimes I laugh at my jokes more than anyone else.
4. I was kicked out of the day care facility at a bowling alley when I was 3 years old because I kept hitting the other children who would not be students in my pretend school.
(I have learned a little more self-control since then - LOL)
5. I've traced my ancestry on Ancestry.com back to the late 1600's in America and even earlier in England.
6. I am easily distracted and can totally relate to my little ones who struggle with focus. 
7. I am a kitchen disaster!  I've burned pans boiling water (yes, more than 1), baked cookies without flour (Boy, that butter, chocolate and egg sure made a mess in the oven!), and one time, I even baked a frozen pie in the oven UPSIDE DOWN! (Again...mess in the oven.)
