7. Share 3 interesting and different facts about yourself.                                                                   It feels like y’all already know everything about me!    

  • I used to bite my toenails, when I was much, much younger, and a TON more bendy!!
  • I’ve been caffeine free since 2006, when I was in the hospital, for a week with pneumonia.     They would only let me have Sprite or ginger ale.      At the time, I was heavily addicted to Coke.        (The DRINK!!!)          So, after the horrible headaches subsided, I decided might as well stay caffeine free.      And I have.
  • I threw myself a huge, hilarious 50th birthday party!      No one else would, so somebody had to do it!         (Maybe I need to blog about that??)

Okay, #1-done    #2- gonna do that little thing right now.

I have been a life long slob.  And I was SICK of it!  I’d been reading cleaning, organizing, and purging blogs.  Kristen, from RoadtoDomestication was the first one I read, since she’s a personal friend.

It is great!  But, she’s naturally organized, and I’m not, so nothing changed.  Then I found Nony, from ASlobComesClean.

And she’s a self admitted slob!  I had found my people!!

So, I determined to take control of my life, one dust bunny at a time.  I started my blog Aug. was a year ago.  Everyday I’d do something, no matter how small, and document it in writing, and pix.  My first post, First Day, was the beginning.

me big girl

Me at 344 lbs. Yep, I was a BIG girl!

Now I’m an experienced blogger with a lot less junk in my life, who has improved health, as well.  My life is so satisfying now.

#3, Advice.

Hmmm, I don’t really feel qualified to give advice, just tell you what worked for me.  Figure out what you want to say.  It has to be important to you, or you’ll lose interest.  Then, start saying it!!  And proofread, proofread, proofread!  I re-read my posts multiple times before I publish, and still mistakes make it thru.  That’s so embarrassing for a Grammar Nazi!!!

#4, 15 other blogs.  That I can do easily!  I know so many wonderful bloggers, just choosing 15 will be the hard part!
