Tag You're It

I have been tagged by Kayla. Six things you may or may not know about me.

1. I am married to Ed. He is 2 years older than me. We both grew up in CT. He worked 10 min. away from where I grew up. We rollerbladed at the same places and ate at the same places yet never managed to meet, Until Aug. 2000(?). My best friend Jess was getting married in a few weeks and was having a birthday party for her husband at their condo. Jess had been trying to set me up with Ed (she didn't want to marry both of them) He was Nick's best friend. I went to the party and met him. He was very quiet but had a nice smile. I didn't think anything of it, I had a boyfriend. We became friends and then my boyfriend and I broke up and we got married in 2002.
2. I only went to 1 semester of formal college. I almost got my certification in Infant/Toddler childcare but had to quit because I was too sick and pregnant. I worked at a small daycare/preschool in Cheshire, near my Mom's house and loved it. I look back on it with fond memories. Before I did that I worked at a Convalescent Center as a dietary aide and as a receptionist. I have also waitressed a few times. I have to admit I am not that good. I am a better hostess. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up but I do love my current job.
3. I love to read. I have not read a book in a while, I am afraid to go to the library in my town, I know dumb! I will probably go next week or this weekend. I also love the beach, I miss FL!, hiking and camping, rollerblading, pilates and yoga. I love to exercise and to be fit. I am also starting to explore cooking and eating healthy and canning and starting small sewing projects. Can't say I love it yet.
4. I am pretty fluent in ASL ( American Sign Language) That is to say I can have a conversation. Anya is also starting to get that way. I wanted to learn to sign when I was about 6 or 7 so my Mom took me to the Public Library and I took out every book in the children' s section on it, it snowballed from there. I started teaching Anya when she was a baby and now she walks around the house and asks me the sign for almost everything. I love to teach her. The last phone converstation I had with my Dad before he passed I told her how I was teaching Anya her colors, he told me to keep teaching her, it was important to know. He always tried to learn, He would always ask me conversational signs and he made an effort to use them as much as he could. Mallory and Marlene can also sign. Mal may be better than me. Not sure. It is a great way to talk during church.:)
5. I am a control freak, I am just able to admit this. As of a few weeks ago I realized that I am not spontaneous at all and I need to control everything in my, and others lives. I am also a huge planner and my calendar is my brain book, if I do not write it down it won't happen.
6. I did not realize how much I enjoyed having alone time until I had my second child. So far I have had 1 alone time. I ran to the store for salsa. 15 min. YES!!! I am also a t.v. aholic. I have to DVR my shows or I will watch all day.
Hope you learned a little about me.
I tag, Marlene, Mom, Ash, Mallory, and Jess

DVR is the most effective way to watch television. A two hour episoid of the Biggest Loser can be cute down to 50minutes. It would be hard to go back to liveTV.
