Tag! I'm it!


Beverly has tagged me and I feel it my duty to respond. Who knows...she may end up tagged by me soon LOL! I have to be about the most boring person on earth!!! I think Beverly will regret asking me. Hopefully you get get through all my answers without being too bored!



1. Where have you traveled? I'm not much of a traveler. The last vacation I went on was my honeymoon thirteen years ago! When I was in high school I went to Germany for a month. I've also been to Florida, New Hampshire, Maine, Maryland and South Carolina. I have no desire to travel. I'm such a home body!
2. Where would you like to live? Right where I am. I would like some renovations though.
3. What is your decorating style? I don't have one! I just do what I like and there is no rhyme or reason.
4. How many times have you been married? Once and only once!
5. Favorite color: I think green would be my favorite, followed by a dark red and then navy blue.
6. What is your proudest accomplishment? The first one would have to be my children! They are both pretty nice people...I think I'll keep them!
7.What would we be absolutely shocked to learn about you? I have a glass eye. I lost my left eye when I was 22 months old to either cancer or Coat's disease (which is a disease of the retina...usually it only happens to males). The verdict is out on the actual cause. It doesn't bother me. I talk about it freely with anyone who asks and if someone told me there was a way to be able to see out of that eye again I would decline. I've been without it for over 45 years and am used it that way.
I'm running out of people to tag! If you would like to play along feel free. Let me know and I'll be sure to come read your answers.
take care,
Dawn

Hi Dawn,
I love getting to know my new blogging friends one day at a time! You and I are alike on number 2, 3, 4, and 6!

We are really different on number 1...I love to travel...but I always can't wait to get back home!
Have a great day!
Diane

Oh Dawn. I am so excited for Brittainy. I can hardly believe it. What an incredible blessing. Give her a big hug from me. Oh what the heck! Give everybody a hug.

You might be funny, but you are never boring. Thanks for being a good sport about your tag.

Boy, I'm late on my visits today. I am getting ready for the onslought of nine grands and two of my daughters. They come along to save me from total melt down from so many children around and wanting to eat. Imagine that! :)

I think your tag is interesting and fun to read. I knew about your glass eye. I can't tell it at all. I am sure you don't remember anything about the loss, so I agree. You can't miss what you never had in your memory of your life.

Take care and enjoy your good news about the house lottery.

I think I'm much more of a homebody than you in the everyday sense...in that I rarely get out of the house for anything. I have no one but myself to blame though...I just detest driving so much that I just don't tend to go much farther than a weekly trip to the library. Maybe that's why I like to travel when I do get the chance. Though I've never been anywhere nearly as far away as Germany! What had you spending a month there while in high school?

I'm going to play along right here. =)

1. Where have you traveled?
I've been to all the states in the northeast US as far down to Virginia & Washington DC. I've been to New Orleans as well. And California. And Quebec. And Florida of course!
2. Where would you like to live?
I wish there was a way to bring 4 seasons & the Red Sox to Florida. Or move Disney World to New England.
3. What is your decorating style?
Ummm... comfy & cozy? LOL
4. How many times have you been married?
Never. I was engaged once though.
5. Favorite color:
A nice deep red (but not so deep it is maroon). Navy blue. And a rich chocolate brown.
6. What is your proudest accomplishment?
Find the courage to walk away from a bad relationship & start all over again.
7.What would we be absolutely shocked to learn about you?
I hate this question. How do I know what would shock someone to learn about me?? And anything universally shocking is *not* being shared online. ;-)
