i'm playing along

Tara from  Between You & Me tagged me in a fun post  over the weekend and I can't believe I did it!  Whew!  This kinda stuff is hard for me. 

I really enjoyed reading hers though --so it is worth it.  It really does allow others to know you a wee bit more.

I am trying to imagine her southern accent.  :(  I've always wanted an accent.  I don't think Missourians have one?

**I apologize about the layout of this post.  It would't work today.  Weirdness.  Ugh!

::The Rules::

one\ post the rules.
two\ post eleven fun facts about yourself
three\ answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
four\ tag eleven people and link them on your post
five\ let them know you've tagged them!

::Facts About Me::

1. I have 3 daughters { 25, 24 & 12 } and 2 sons { 21 & 17 } & 4 grand babies..1 is on the way & all from the 24 year old!
2. I am a pen & paper girl.  I have a pen fetish.  Seriously back to school time ROCKS!
3. I dream of one day owning my own little farm with a horse, cow, ducks, chickens, no pigs...labs & a cat ( & only outside )
4. I prefer being at home to going going going.  I guess you call that a homebody?
5. I have a big nose which maybe why I LOVE candles, plug ins, Scentsy whatever!  All baked smells.  Cinnamon, pumpkin, spice, hazelnut, coffee.  My son gets told at school he smells like maple syrup.  Not kidding:)
6. I'm a bum.  Plain and simple.  I've fought it for years and I keep going back to loose and comfy.  My girls keep trying to get me to buy clothes that fit to no avail.  Sorry girls
7. I am scared to death to fly.  So much so that I missed my granddaddy's funeral ( I didn't really know him though).  I need serious medication to fly.  Plain terrified
8. In another life I would be the character in Under the Tuscan Sun.  End of story.
9. I am NOT photogenic.  I always tilt my head like in the Taco Bell commercial years ago...taquito taco bell?  and the little dog would tilt his head?  oh well...I'm old.
10. I am an incurable list maker.  Every day I have a new list.  It used to control me but the older I get I am happy with checking things off each day.  That is enough.
11. I love talking & thinking about deep things.  I've been that way since I can remember.
