This is me.. take it or leave it *Tag

And now I've been tagged by my blogging friend Allie - so now I have to tell you about myself, not just my kids :) now the hard part is going to be coming up with 6, yes SIX random things about myself - if it was only one or two, that would be easier, but I guess I have to follow the rules, which brings me to my first point -
  1. I seem to have this uncanny thing about following the rules (except the speed limit, oops) - whether it's because I fear the repercussions or just because it's the "right thing to do" I'm not sure. In secret I would like to break all the rules one day, ALL the rules - even laws.. not the big laws, just little ones :) lol if that makes any sense.. All my IRL friends must be laughing, imagining me breaking laws :)lol
  2. I used to be so self conscious about my appearance when I was younger, and now that I've had two kids - I couldn't care less. I would never think about wearing a two piece, but now I'm out there with my bikini any day - stretch marks and all - welcome to the world all you barbie girls - most women don't look like you, you are abnormal, whereas there are a lot more out there looking like me :)
  3. I grew up in a small conservative/sheltered town but refuse to let myself be naive! I make it my purpose to be educated and informed with what's going on, good/bad and ugly - it doesn't mean that I agree with any of it - but at least I'm aware of it!
  4. If the music's blaring - knock before entering :) otherwise you and I will be surprised to find me dancing in my underware.. mind you it's been a while since I've been able to relax in this way (since the kids keep me busy) but every now and then I'll bust a move - like a dancing diva... just ask my great friend Andrea :) and for those of you who have never tried it, you wouldn't believe how freeing it is!
  5. If I'm sad or lonely or just don't know what to do with myself - I like to head out to the local shopping mall. Not that I buy anything (unless it accidentally jumps into my cart) but just being out and people watching is therapy enough to bust the blues away!
  6. Ok, I'm on the last one... my husband still surprises me with his good deeds for the day - not for me but for others. we were driving along the other day and all-of-a-sudden he stopped the vehicle - I had no idea why.. he had seen some old guy biking along the road, stopped and waited for him to catch up and then proceeded to give him a few bottles of water he had on the back of the truck - like where did that come from? but that's one of the reason's I love my hubby so much - he has such a big heart for people!
So now it's my turn to tag a few people; I tag:
Heather - Our Life Voyage
Notes from the Cookie Jar
Andrea - The Laughs Will Go On
Stacey - Fun with the Friesens
The Happy Geek
Christy - Living, laughing, and loving!

The rules: Link to the person who tagged you. Post the rules on your blog. Write six random things about yourself. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blog. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment at their site. Let your tagger know when your blog entry is up.

Hey thanks for linking to me :) I probably won't get to it for a couple of days but it will be a fun thing to look forward to. Hmm... 6 random things? I'll have to think a bit.

It's always nice to bump into fellow Canadians on blogs. :)
