I got Tagged

I was tagged again by a fellow blogger and friend of mine, Grammy Lura. And to think I thought the first tag was difficult. I always have a hard time trying to think of things about myself worth writing down (or typing, shall I say). So here it goes, six more interesting things about me. Well, I hope you find them interesting; I'll try to embellish a bit. :)
#1 I can only swim with one arm. The other one is always occupied ( I have to plug my nose, or else). I wish I didn't have to worry about water getting in my nose, but alas, I worry.
#2 As most of you know, I love animals. I've also had in my possession (pets and/or animals that needed temporary care) an array of different animals. My list includes dogs, kittens, hamsters, raccoons, an oppossum, a duck, a couple mourning doves, a pair of sugargliders, a turtle, a ferret, and an aquarium full of fish. Maybe I'll add to my list one of these days, but I have a feeling I'll just stick with the two dogs I have. :)
#3 I have a large family. My grandmother had eleven kids, including my mother. I have over forty cousins, maybe more. I lost count several years ago, we just keep on multiplying. :)
#4 One of the things I loved the most about when I was in junior high was track and field. I just didn't like to run. I was more into the field part of track and field. I loved the discus! I placed second in the district at the end of the year track meet, and I really believe I would have done just as well in high school, but that loser high school coach only wanted someone who was good in both discus and shotput. I was not good in the shotput; he chose not to keep me on the team. I still hate that I didn't even get a chance to prove myself. I thought for sure I'd get another opportunity to win first place my freshman year, but it just didn't happen.
#5 I think watermelon is digusting. That's all I have to say about that.
#6 I truly hate public speaking. I mean, I hate it in a different way than most people do, it REALLY bothers me. Don't ever expect me to stand up in front of a crowd for anything, I just won't do it.

Now it is my turn to play. I've tagged you six and you're it:
Who will the lucky six be??? I'll tag Rachel, as I always do, Cindy, Jansport, Queen Amidala, Hillary Clinton (if she checks my page, even), and lastly Jacko (I think he'll have some interesting things to dish on). PS I love Kevin! What you need on your post is as follows in the rules below:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on the blog
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post
5. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Now it is my turn to play. I've tagged you six and you're it:

I confess Tara- you got the problem of having to swim with one hand from me. I have never been able to swim without getting water in my nose if I don't hold it closed. Also, I admit you probably got the public speaking phobia from me also. Sorry about that!!
Go Kevin!!

Love,
MOM

Thanks for doing my tag so quickly. What fun to learn more about you. Come swim in my pool and I'll give you a nose plug so you can swim with both hands.

What is a sugarglider???

Who is Kevin????

Does Holly like watermellon???

Interested people want to know.

Have a good day.

Tara~ Your awesome! I truly love you. I swim about the same as you do, oh well...one day we'll be perfect and then we'll race each other! You truly are an animal freak! Love it!

*Also, if you desire any jewelry I bought those pieces for $1-$4 a piece so if any jump out at you yell. I am also going back to her house so if there is any need for a particular color you are looking for/wanting yell at me also & I will keep my eyes out. Just to let you know.
