7 More Things You Don't Need to Know About Me...

I did the 8 Random Facts About Me Meme a ways back. Check it out. It's all still true.

Does this cover me for the 7 Things You Don't Need to Know About Me Meme that Sue Hickton just tagged me to do?

If not, here's 7 more tidbits:

1. I think I'm an inherently lazy person. To put a positive spin on this, I call it being extremely efficient. I try to get the best work done with the least amount of effort. I could also say that it's exhaustion -- a by-product of motherhood -- three kids ages 5 1/2 - 7 months will do that to a person.

2. My father always referred to me as his "eldest unmarried daughter" until I got married. Then I became his "eldest married daughter." My Dad had a few standard lines. I miss them.

3. I have two older brothers.

4. As a kid, I wanted to grow up to be a writer.

5. We just captured six mice in our house within the span of a few days. Unfortunately, there are still more of the little poopers running around.

6. I have been told that my 3 1/2 year old daughter looks exactly like I did at that age. I think she must be WAY cuter than I was.

7. I live at the end of dead-end road with a little stream running through the backyard and a forest of trees to look upon.

I'm supposed to tag seven other people, which I'm feeling really lazy about. So I'm just doing six.

Oh you are good. Sue Hickton tagged me a few days back and it's been sitting in the in-tray of to-dos since then. Thanks for the subliminal nudge!

Kia ora Cammy!

What a hoot of a list. I came across your blog while on the Comment Challenge in May this year, and for some reason or another I lost the link to it and didn't put it in my RSS Reader. Doh!

It's there now. Thanks for the opportunity to read your blog - again :-)

Best wishes for the coming year.

I think if you comment on this post, you should be required to participate in the 7 things meme. How's that?

And same to you, oh Middle-earth Blogger...Glad to be back in touch. I've sort of slipped into Mordor-of-the-mind of late and barely keep up with anything...(can you tell that I'm re-reading Lord of the Rings? I was going to use that as one of my 7 things, but then I filled 'em up.)

Cammy--I'm preferring to think of it as not "lazy" but "balanced." I think that our culture is WAY too focused on "productivity" and getting things done and that if we lived in another culture, we might not see it as laziness. And even if it is, I think I'm with you on that one. :-)

Ah yes. It's the whole cult of progress mentality we've got going on here. Hard to resist the pull of needing to do more, more, more. And of doing it better.

Mission accomplished.
