48 Things You Probably Never Wanted to Know About Me

questionOne would think that I would be bursting with things to tell you but I got nothing.

In fact, I’ve been trying to catch up on all the blog posts that I’ve missed in addition to being gone for a week.

So while about halfway through my Google Reader I came across this post from Marie at SuperMom Challenged.

She told me to play along and so I’m going to… because clearly I have nothing better to do… (never mind that my suitcase STILL isn’t unpacked!)

So here goes…

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?

Yes!  Heather comes from the heroine in the book my mom read while pregnant with me… The Flame and the Flower.  My middle name is Barbara-Ann… a combination of both of my great grandmas on both sides.  (Reality, they wanted to name me Heather Ann but my mom had the forethought that my initials would spell HAM so Ann became Barbara-Ann.  I can assure you, I would’ve rather been HAM than have strangers take one look at your ID and then back at you and start to sing… bar-bar-bar… bar-bar-berann.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?

a week ago.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?

love it!  and it changes often.  because I like change.  But I LOVE to handwrite things.  And I LOVE to fill out forms!

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?

Lebanon Sweet Balogna.  I can only get it when I go to Tennessee or Pennsylvania… at the Amish stores.

Four… we call them the Things… Thing 1 (Boy, 16), Thing 2 (girl, 13), Thing 3 (boy, 10), Thing 4 (girl,8)

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?

I have one pair of shoes that require me to tie them… I like slip on everything… but I don’t untie them when I take them off.  (I do however get on my kids about un-tying their shoes before taking them off.  But they wear them everyday and they ruin them when they do that.  Yes.  I’m quite the hypocrite!

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?

You are only as strong as you have to be.  But I’ve been through quite a bit in my life.  Just about the time I don’t think I can handle anymore, I’m given something else and I seem to get through it…

  1. It’s actually quite funny to realize how much you have in common with people you would never have met otherwise online!! And it’s sometimes fun to just write something completely off the wall that doesn’t take a whole lot of thought:-) Thanks for playing along!!
