Seven New Things About Me!

Seven New Things About Me

I've been blessed by Gregg over at Gospel Driven Disciples with The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you very much Gregg. I really appericate your kindness.  I am to list 5 random facts about me. I am also supposed to pass it on to 5 other bloggers which I will do but I do so with no inferred obligation whatsoever!

1. I have been dyeing my hair since I was thirteen. That's when I saw my first grey hair. My mom and sisters all started greying early. I don't dye my hair any crazy color. I just want to cover up my grey. I usually choose a alburn, dark brownish red color.

2. One Christimas when I was a kid, I wanted a Cabbage Patch doll for Christmas. I love Cabbage Patch dolls. Well on Christimas morning, what did I get--a cabbage with a face drawn on it! I immediately started crying my eyes out without realizing a real Cabbage Patch Doll was behind the cabbage. 

3. I spent a semester of college in Saltillo, Mexico. I absolutely loved it!  Saltillo is such a beauty city with a rich history. If you've never been to Mexcio I highly recommend it. Just avoid the border towns-they are ugly! 

4. I am not a very organized person. I want to be and I try hard. It just never seems to work out most of the time. It drives my hubby nuts because he is very anal. Ahum, I mean organized. :)

5. My oldest sister passed due to complications of cystic fibrosis when I was tweleve years old. I will never forget her. She was a wonderful person and I know I'll see her again some day. 

Now to the folks I would like to pass my award on to:
1. Diana at To Everything a Season
2. Trudy at Third Time's a Charm 
3.  Yvonne at Welcome to my world of poetry
4.  Margret at Single and Sane
5. Nola at Alamo North

Congrats on the award!

I love Saltillo! A bit cold for my tastes but I'm a big whiny baby. I live 30 minutes away from there - in Monterrey. Have you ever been to Monterrey?

Congratulations and that was a cruel trick with the cabbage.

I wanted a car for my 16th Christmas - my parents handed me a package on Christmas morning, sharply, and almost harshly making sure I didn't tip it or turn it over while I was opening it.

When I got it opened it was a toy car. Why didn't they want me to tip or turn over the package? They didn't want any "gas or oil" to spill on to their carpet.

That was cruel and ihumane parental treatment if you ask me. I did get care when I was 16th, I had to buy it and it was a 1963 Pontiac Tempst I paid 100.00 for.

I agree it was a horrible trick. I would never do that to my child.

Thanks for the award. I'll have to think long and hard to come up with seven new things.
Hope the storms miss you, stay safe!
