I Am Honest (most of the time)

I have fallen behind on my blogging and reading. I will catch up soon. I have missed everyone. So here goes. Thank you Syd for the honesty award.

Here are the rules:
I have to list 10 honest things about myself, and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers.

So here it is:
1. I have to admit that I like girly pop music- Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Mandy Moore and oh yes even Paris Hilton (don't judge me).
2. I have honestly thought and considered hurting myself (without the intent of death) in order to gain some one's attention and love.
3. When I was a kid I used to think my stuffed animals had feelings. I took turns sleeping with all of them because I didn't want anyone to feel bad.
4. I was born in Riverside, RI and lived in the same house my mom was raised in from the time she was 7. We moved to Tabernacle, NJ when I was 15 and a freshman in High school. I hated my parents for taking me away from everything and everyone I loved. Today, I believe it was one of the best decisions my parents made for me.
5. I am allergic to artificial red coloring. When I was 17 I ate a red freeze pop and had an anaphylactic reaction. I was rushed to the hospital and almost went into shock. I no longer eat anything with red dye and I am supposed to always carry an eppy-pen.
6. I still look for K2's blue SUV when I am walking up my street.
7. I have webbed toes!
8. I was afraid to drive as a teenager. I did not get my licence until I was almost 19 years old. My mom made me.
9. I am not a big sweets person. Most people want dessert after a meal. I almost never crave chocolate. I would much prefer a big bowl of pasta or a plate of rice and beans.
10. I honestly believe that my father will drink until the day he dies.

Okay, I think almost everyone has received this award by now, but there may be a few of you left...

Alright, I think that is all of you. Thanks so much again to everyone here. I don't think I can express in words how much all of you help me. It is so nice to know that I have so many people caring and praying for me. As you may be able to tell I am in much better spirits over the last few days. More about that tomorrow.

Today I am grateful for:

Wow, webbed toes just like my Labradors. I'm not a big sweets fan either. I'm with you on the pasta thing.

Thank you for being here. You add a lot to the blogging group. Have a great day.

I STILL think stuffed animals have feelings. I also think my car does, my motorcycle,my favorite clothing and jewelery,of course all my plants, ......I guess I am a magical thinker. I left a comment on Lou's blog yesterday saying I wish I had that back. Thanks for reminding me I hadn't lost it! Great list!jeNN

#7. Bet you're a terrific swimmer!

#10. Well, I guess we ALL do 'something' until the day we die! Is it then a matter of 'timing'? (I know I wold have been dead at least 25 years ago, maybe even before that. AA has saved my butt--and the rest of me, too, I might add!

Thanks LOADS for "Getting to Know You...Getting to Know All--About You..."
