Eight Things About Me-Me Meme

Msteri at Heritage Happens tagged me for the new-old meme, “Eight Things About Me.” Thank you for thinking of me, Msteri!

Here are the rules:

*Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
*Write a blog post about these eight things and post these rules.
*At the end of the blog post, list eight people to get tagged.
*Leave a comment on their blogs telling them they have been tagged.

Ok, here goes…

1. I’m an only child.
2. I have a dog and 3 guinea pigs.
3. I’ve lived in California my whole life.
4. I was a music major in college (violin performance), but my degree is in Social Science.
5. I met my husband online.
6. I had my first (and only) child at age 42.
7. I’m a compulsive volunteer.
8. I don’t like tomatoes, but I like tomato products (like salsa or spagetti sauce).

Now, on to share the fun with eight others who have hopefully not been tagged yet:

Cindy at In My Life
Sasha at Memory Lane
Elyse at Elyse’s Genealogy Blog
Becky at Grace and Glory
Amy at Amy’s Genealogy Blog
Debbie at Genealogy, Middle Age & Life
Amy at We Tree

  1. Thanks for the tag. That was fun!

  2. Finally, another normal person! (you know, one that doesn’t like tomatoes….that was in my list of 8 things, too)


  3. I’m so glad to know that I’m not alone with my tomato dislike! My husband loves them, and so does my daughter (although they give her a nasty bottom rash), so I’m the “freak” of the family!

    Thanks for sharing!
