Another Day.......Another Freebie

I'm going to actually attempt to write something that makes sense, ie I don't go off on another idea and then come back to the original thought. I seriously think I need to go to the doctor, my mind is everywhere, I do not like this feeling at all. I'm the kind of person who is always early for an appointment, if I'm ther 10 minutes to I feel rushed and like I'm late, Just can't get my butt in gear to save my life. Wow do I ever need to clear my head.....................ok. done.

Next topic:
I read a blog today that was all about random facts about yourself. The blogger stated how difficult it was to come up with some interesting things about herself as she lived a boring life and there wasn't much about her. I loved the way she interviewed herself, kept asking questions and came up with some really things about herself. She encouraged others to come up with random facts about themselves. So here's my attempt

1. Tattoos-I have 3 and got my first one when I was 27. The interesting part of that story is it was done by the step-father of one of my students. My first is a hummingbird on my left hip, the second is two black-eyed Susans on the inside of my right foot, love that one. My third is a dragonfly on my left shoulder......I'll explain the story of that special tattoo another night as it deserves a post of it's own.

2. I love the colour yellow but I don't really wear it or do I have it in my home. It's just a colour I've always liked.

3. I sometimes get spooked. There are some nights I just get weirded out for no reason and feel antsy.

4. I act all tough on the outside, but I am such a softie. The outside is to protect myself from getting hurt......people who know me well know this.

5. I have an incredible fear of failing......translated I don't try many things because I don't want to screw it up.

6. That being said I also don't like change. Now I can be spontaneous and have fun, but in my daily life I don't like it when the routine of life gets changed.............had two big ones in 2 years and I'm still finding my way.........cancer and a marriage break up..........there goes that routine in a hurry.

7. I took my mother's car when I was 15 and decided I would go for a spin...backed it up, hit the gas and drove right over our neighbours front yard....squealed out of there leaving some pretty good ruts. Went around the block and came home. Confessed when I was 21

8. I secretly do like the cat, but don't tell him. I kind of enjoy our love/hate relationship.

9. My favourite feature on me? My eyes, they are a blue/gray and I really love the colour.

10. I'm still searching for the 'real' me. Or should I say the 'new' me, I've had two life altering experiences and I'm still trying to find who I am. The real me got lost a long time ago, so now I must try to find a glimpse of her as well as dig deep and find the new me.

11. I'm fiercely loyal and true to those I care about.

There you go random things about me......not exciting, definitely OCD tendencies but I knew that. Issues, yep but then who doesn't?

On to the template..........yes I made the one with family as was requested. I must say I'm a little disappointed in the amount of downloads compared to the 'yep I was here' or 'ty'. So to those of you who took the extra couple of seconds to let me know you were here, I thank you. I'm running out of ideas as to what you would like to see. Let me know......I'll see what I can come up with.

Thanks so much for sharing! I loved your random facts. I get spooked at night, too, sometimes, and I have to put my laundry basket in front of the door. Weird, huh? Like a basket is going to keep someone out. heh

Thank you so much for this creative idea for family photos. It really is nice. And, don't get discouraged about the few comments. I have been guilty of downloading in a rush and failing to thank the wonderful person who shared. Your work is really nice and people do appreciate it.
