Mothers’ Day Meme – 7 Random Things

I was tagged for this meme by Amy. I’m sure I’ve repeated these items somewhere before, but I’ll try to keep them fresh. There are only so many things to know about me. đŸ˜€

  1. I can say the alphabet backwards.
  2. I have an aversion to bare feet. Others’ feet, not my own. Seeing bare toes gives me the heebie-jeebies. When I worked at Arthur Andersen many years ago, and they went to business casual, and included open toed shoes in the “ok” list, I thought I was going to lose it! It’s better than it used to be though. I’m working on it.
  3. I pretty much knew I was going to be an accountant when I was 17, and…lo and behold…
  4. I went to grade school in a one-room schoolhouse.
  5. I used to play with garter snakes at recess.
  6. My childhood home was a geodesic dome based on Buckminster Fuller’s designs.
  7. I was a computer programmer for over 7 years.

Happy Mothers’ Day

My Mothers’ Day morning started with J4 getting up with J5 and allowing me to sleep in. (Heaven!) Then I got a beautiful Vermont Teddy Bear from J5 (thanks for helping him, Daddy). Those bears are awesome! I’ve collected Teddy Bears over the years and this is one awesome bear – which comes with a lifetime guarantee. If he ever gets damaged, you can send him to the bear “hospital” and he’ll get all better!

This afternoon we will be spending with the in-laws. I hope all of you have a relaxing, family-filled Mom’s Day!

And I would like to wish a Happy Mothers’ Day to my Mom. Here’s a picture of her with J5. (Thanks for all the help last weekend, Mom – you guys were AWESOME!!)
