Bricks, Broken Glass and Fun Things to Do With Beads


Okay, so I got some interesting answers yesterday to the question of:

Tell me something about yourself that people might be surprised to learn.

Thanks to everyone who shared and answered the question. As for my answer, I think it’s hard to say. A lot of people know many different things about me, but maybe not everything. Other than Michelle, there probable isn’t a person who knows everything. So I’ll try to give some interesting facts that some of you may already know and some of you don’t:

When I was younger, I put both my hands through a glass door and came with no injuries.

Also when I was younger, my brother hit me in the face with a brick. I had a big black eye, but that was about it.

I didn’t reach five feet tall until I was a junior in high school.

When Michelle asked me to go to the senior prom with her in high school I said no. (Little did I know 27 years later I still can’t live this one down)

I absolutely love horror movies – good ones, bad ones, it doesn’t matter.

I had a really bad temper as a child to the point where I would scream, yell and turn blue from holding my breath.

I need darkness and quiet to fall asleep.

I have always had more female friends than male friends.

I have a huge collection of autographs (over 5,000) and baseball cards (somewhere around 30,000).

I love to cook but don’t eat pasta, cheese or milk.

When I was in the hospital, I insisted that we had won the lottery and Michelle spent all 13 million dollars (there were lots of other things I thought were real too, that’s for another time).

I think that’s just about enough for now. If there is anything else you want to know about me, just ask, I’m glad to share, which is kind of weird because I have always considered myself to be a very shy person, to the point where it has probably kept from doing things in life. Anyway, let’s move on to today’s question. Since Mother’s Day is this weekend, I thought I would do some Mom themed questions this weekend. So here is today’s question:

What is a gift that you made for your mother when you were a child?

It has to be something that you made, not bought. Now we have all made things for Mom in school or at home, and we all thought that we made the greatest gift in the world and Mom was always nice and took it with a smile even if she couldn’t figure out what it was that you made. So what can you think of? I’m sure you can remember and your Mom probably held on to it for years. Or if you are a Mom, can you remember something that you received as a gift from your kids?  Think about it and you can answer on here, or on Facebook or Twitter. I’ll post my answer tomorrow and I’ll ask some people on Twitter and see if I get any response.

So that’s it until tomorrow. Don’t forget to do something creative today! (maybe make something for your Mom?)
