I got tagged by Sheila (THANKS Sheila). Usually when I get these tags, I kind of dread them but this one is different. I like to find out things about people that I wouldn't otherwise know.

This is how it works:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your Blog (copy and paste 1-7)
3. Write 7 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.
Here goes Seven[7] Factoids about ME:
1. I dropped out of school. I know, I know maybe I shouldn't have started my 7 with what appears to be a negative but it has a happy ending. I took and passed my GED 16 years ago and have never looked back! WOOHOO!
2. I married Kevin when I was 16. Boy everyone must be thinking what a stinker I was, and its true. But "WAS" is the key word here. After marrying Kevin I realized that had my life been on a different path things may not have turned out the same way. He is the very best thing that ever happened to me. I am a firm believer in EVERTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON! (Which just happens to be my #3).
3. I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason (is there an echo in here?) There is a purpose for everything............ good or bad in our lives.
4. I am the Assistant Executive Director for Clark County Fair. I have been employed at the Fair for 10 years but have been involved for many more years than that (mostly as a cashier). I took a 2 year break in between the 10 to completely focus on Real Estate, but we all know how the Real Estate Market is right now so I am very greatful to have my job at the Fair.
5. Since marriage (26 years), We have moved 20 times. Yep, you heard me right, 20 times! While some of them were by choice, most of them were not. Sitting here reminiscing about each move I realized that life has not always been an easy journey but from the associated sorrows we are much stronger and much, much more compassionate and understanding of others circumstances.
6. I had mononucleosis when I was about 9 or 10. It used to be known as the "kissing disease". Boy if you don't think I got a good teasing in school then......... Come to find out it comes from being run down, (the Epstein Virus). Mine was traced to sharing lip gloss (the "in thing" when I was that age) at school. It was believed that it was SOOO contagious, that I had to spend 2 weeks in my room and only come out for potty breaks. If I remember correctly, Mom would clear the house of any humans before she would come and escort me to the bathroom. (Mom correct me if Im wrong but this is how I remember it).
7. I popped my spleen (well actually ruptured, but popped sounds so much more dramatic) jumping on my freinds tampoline when I was about 12 or 13. We used to play that crazy game where everyone would jump at the same time and you would hope that one person, usually me, would land a nano second later than everyone else and really catapult into the sky. Well this particular time I catapulted alright, and came straight down on my freinds knee with my stomache. OUCH!!!!!!! I also remember biting completely through my tongue on that same trampoline and could only have liquids through a straw for several days until the wound was healed. I still have the scar from that one!
Thanks again Sheila! This has been a fun (well slightly painful but mostly fun) trip down memory lane.
I tag; Dave, Lindsay, Annette, Ronda, Danila, Taryn, Brittany
