My good friend, Melissa McClone, asked me if I minded if she could tag me. She’s one of my long distant friends that I never see enough of, but when we do get to see each other, I find that it doesn’t matter how much time has passed, we are already caught up. Does that make sense?. So for Melissa, I will endeavor to be Honest and thank you for asking.
The rules are as follows: Thank the blogger who awarded you, and then list 10 honest things about yourself. Choose 7 other blogs to receive the award, and inform the bloggers that you’ve chosen them. I am going to just put it out there that if you want to do this, go ahead!
1. I loathe these sort of things. Because I hate being honest about my faults. Oh, I have them, but being honest about them? Phooey! I’d rather go to the dentist.
2. I actually don’t mind going to the dentist. So I guess that makes my previous statement rather meaningless.
3. I hate Chapters 4 and 7 in every book. I will do just about anything, including laundry, cleaning the baseboards, or mucking out beneath the kitchen sink than write them. But don’t go bother look in any of my books for those chapters, because the Chapters 4 and 7 in my drafts never turn into the actual Chapters 4 and 7.
4. Every once in a while, I wish I had a daughter. But I wouldn’t trade either of my heroes-in-training for one.
5. I don’t suffer fools very well. I need to learn some patience, but every time I try, it never turns out well.
6. I love working by myself. My husband says there is a reason why I work alone. I never got along well in offices, and hated all the behind kissing that seemed to go along with it. See #5 for a better understanding.
7. I can’t think of any place I’d rather live than in the current house we own. It isn’t big, it isn’t fancy, but I feel complete inside these walls. My husband would love a big house, but I don’t like them. I love being all tossed together.
8. I’ve never taken to email all that much. I much prefer a phone call and will dial friends all the time to chat. I think it is a dying art.
9. I do like texting. But then again, I loved passing notes in school. It always impresses the teenage babysitters that I “text.” Apparently, they don’t know anyone else my age who does.
10. You know why I love my knitting so much? Both my grandmothers knit and every time I pick up needles, I feel closer to them. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of one of them. Best of all, I love the continuity of hand crafts–one generation to the next. Since I have sons and no daughters, (see #4) I hope to gain fiber loving daughters-in-law. Or granddaughters. Though on that note, I have loads of patience. I can wait.
Got 10 things you want to be honest about? Go ahead and blog about them. Or just share a few here in the comments.
