Posts Tagged ‘Michelle’

Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you (check out her beautiful belly!)
2) Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6)
3) Write 6 random things about yourself
4) Tag 6 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.

So here goes:

1) I used to be scared of the dark. I’m talking I shared a room with my sister and if she got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I’d wake up from a dead sleep and cry until she came back in. To this day, I try to be “brave” and not be scared. But sometimes, I’m still pretty freaked out.

2) I’ve always had vivid dreams. Not just during pregnancy (although this time around they are a bit more extreme). I’ve dreamt about my great-grandmother just after she passed away. I’ve dreamt about my dad. But one of my most memorable dreams was as a little girl. I dreamt I was playing in the backyard and there was a hole in the ground. I loved dressing up, dresses, heels, the works. I dreamt I accidentally lost a heel in the hole. Then the devil himself came up from the earth angry and violent. He blew down my house (like the wolves in the three little pigs). And being a weird dream, it was only the front of the house. The framewas there – you know, like a dollhouse. And there was my family, doing what they would normally be doing.

3) I love cartoons. And dry humor. And mindless humor. One of my all-time favorites is Dude, Where’s my Car? BJD has even taught our son to say, Dude! Sweet! and I love it.

4) I have strong religious convictions. But I don’t believe in pushing them on anyone else. I was born and raised in a Christian home, but did not understand what it meant until college. It was there that I first really learned what it meant to be a Christian and began following Christ. I’ve always found it interesting that some of the most horrible critics are those in our own faith. And perhaps that’s why I don’t push. I sadly met too many people right after being a Christian that were highly critical and judgemental. That life is not for me.

5) I’m learning to embrace life in Germany. I’ve spent the first year comparing good versus bad, what’s better in the States and just missing things. Which I find odd. While in the States, I tried hard to incorporate more German things. Now that I’m in Germany, I try to incorporate more things from the States.

6) I’m watching The Simpsons right now. As is Bubba Joe and BJD. We’re a family of fans.

So who to tag … who to tag … let’s see.

Photo Tag …

Oops. Guess I should be checking my blogs, er, tags.

Heather over at Bubbles and Ducks tagged me.

Fourth file, fourth picture.

And I just rearranged my pictures folder!

This is a picture Bubba Joe’s Dad (aka BJD) took on his new camera phone. I think it’s a nice profile of our little man.

And what I realized after I posted is this picture shows Bubba Joe’s right ear.

While his right ear may not seem so different from his left ear, the truth is that his right ear is slightly more pointed than his left. Why? When he was in the NICU (remember, he was born early due to preeclampsia) I unknowingly replaced his hat without checking his ears. This meant his ear was slightly bent under his hat. I don’t think it hurt him though (certainly not like the daily blood tests he went through).

His ear is much less pointy than in his baby pictures (it really was quite noticable) but it is a constant reminder of his NICU experience … just like the permanent scarring on his left foot as a result of the hospital bracelet rubbing his skin raw (he was so tiny they put it on his leg).

So who am I tagging? Hmmm, let’s see.

My sister, over at Life, the Universe and Camping
Em’s mom, at steeped insanity
G, at From the Big Apple to the Big Bear
and Megan, at Worcester Wonderland

So, have fun! Remember, fourth file, fourth picture. And tag four people.

I know I’ve got at least one more tag out there I’ve got to do … I promise I’ll get to it!
