36 Things About Me

I pinched this idea from another blog, Trevor’s Birding which I read this morning. Trevor had listed 47 things about himself. I choose 36 because I’m 36 (not 37 yet :-)) so here goes, I wonder if I can come up with 36 things? These aren’t in any particular order.

7. I don’t believe in horoscopes. I don’t have a star sign.
8. I homeschool my children and I love being part of their lives, working together, it’s hard to describe – doing life together.
