My MEME

I was tagged by friend Melissa to do this MEME thing. The idea is to write six things about yourself and then "tag" 6 more people to do the same. I think almost every one I know with a blog may have already done one so I don't know who I'll tag...the buck may just stop here but oh well. I don't know how exciting this will be but here goes.

1. I never thought that I wanted children until my nephew was born. I was in the delivery room for the entire birth, and god bless my SIL because she did it all naturally. (Pass the drugs to this girl please and thank you.) Anyhow..it was just such an amazing moment for me at that stage in my life and I fell so in love with that little boy and I just knew that I wanted to be a mommy one day. I really hope to have another baby one day but if I don't I am so so so content with the fact that I was given the chance to be a mom and that someone needs me as much as I need them. Emma has forever changed my life as all you mom's reading this can relate to.

2. I am very scared of the dark. (yes mom...still!!) I sleep with the t.v. on every night and if I am in bad weather I immediately start searching for any means of fire to keep the room lit with candles or lanterns and flashlights or all of the above. Like the power could go off in my office for example and if I am in sudden pitch black dark I will have a panic attack until someone can find a light source.

3. I used to swim and dive competitively and one year I made it all the way to the state championship in diving. It was held in Millidgeville, Ga and I think I was around 11 years old...that was a long time ago so I really can't remember. I do remember feeling so good about myself for making it there. I was a very competitive person when it came to sports so I was so excited. I didn't do that great, I think I came in sixth place. I remember that before I went to do my first dive I went out to "test" the diving board and you cannot do this in a state competition so I came to find out. Ooops. But it is still a great memory that sticks with me to this day.

4. I am fiercely loyal to my family and friends. My family means the world to me and my friends are amazing. It makes me happy that I am still such good friends with people I have known from the 3d grade, from middle school etc. I'm thankful for the new friendships I have made as well. So if you consider me to be a friend..I've got news for you, your stuck with me.

5. I would love to write Children's books and I think I would be good at it.

6. I love word games, word puzzles, crosswords, the jumble...if I don't make it on to the Wheel of Fortune one day I will simply be crushed. Words just make sense to me. I often wonder how I ended up working in accounting because I have to be honest...I suck at math. So go figure right?

You should definitely write a sassy childrens book. Also you are stuck with me too. If we have made it through as much stuff as we have---I can't imagine not being there for each other!

We have such talented women on our board. You and your diving, Lauren and her skating... We could start an Olympics team!

Wow. Thanks for sharing Kim...the more I learn about you, the more I admire your wittiness. Good luck with the children's book. I'm sure it'll be spanky.
