I was tagged again

I was tagged again! This time is was by Wendy Frederick. I am supposed to tell 7 interesting things about myself, so here we go again!

1. When I was 2 and 1/2 I was burned when a teenage boy took off a radiator cap of an overheated car. I had second and third degree burns all over my body, but the only scars that i have are on my shoulders and on my arm.

2. I had eye surgery when I was 4 for a lazy eye. I can't believe I am saying this but I actually used to run into walls because of it, or so I am told. I really don't remember it.

3. I have had two babies on their due dates, that doesn't happen very often.

4. I love to sing and act. As a child and teenager I played Mary in "The Secret Garden"; a maid in "My Fair Lady"; Kim in "Bye Bye Birdie"; I was Hope Heartcore in "Anything Goes", and I was in the chorus in "Fiddler on the Roof".

5. I grew up in a little town called Charleston, Illinois. It was actually one of the sites of the Lincoln/Douglas debates. Abraham Lincoln lived near there as a child and the cabin that was his home is still there, they have reenactments of that time period and the debates as well. You often hear that area called that Land of Lincoln. That is one of the reasons we named our second child Lincoln.

6. I want to go back to school this next fall and get my degree in Sign Language interpretation. I started to take sign language my freshman year and I just fell in love with it. But, I got pregnant and I got pregnant again, and then Barry started school, and then I got pregnant again. Life just happened. But I am determined to start school again. After I get my degree I would love to volunteer places so that I can keep fluent with the language. Eventually I would like to get a job interpreting for deaf children in a school. I think that might be when my children are older and gone though....I dunno, it is so far away.

7. my favorite color is yellow.....i just couldn't think of anything else

i don't tag anyone else
