So sorry to do this to you.....

If you're as tired of hearing about me as I am, please feel free to hit that little button above the header that says Next Blog. But, if you decide to stay through another one of the "Me, Me, Me" posts, I promise it'll be rather short, for my posts anyways.

My wonderfully upbeat and funny bloggie friend, Sara, at ...Make Music From Your Heart To The Lord, tagged me to play another little meme and I promised her I'd "git 'r done" this week (dont'cha just love that guy?). I could watch Larry the Cable Guy for hours.

Oops, sidetracked again. (Do ya think I may have adult ADD?) Back to the meme. Here are the rules:

Tell everyone three things you like about yourself. Tag three people to play along.

1. I like that I could crack myself up just by thinking of something that was really funny in my past, it could be anything. I sometimes do that and just start laughing out loud and then quickly notice that people are looking at me with a "what-is-so-funny" expression on their face.

2. I like that I am the only person I know that make actually MAKE themselves sneeze. I discovered this talent in my 20's and it works great for when you have a stuffy nose, or when I want to irritate get Scott's attention. He hates when I do that and always tells me I'm going to blow my brains out by doing it. Heh!

3. I love that I'm a Mama. Although I sometimes dream of Calgon taking me away, I really believe in my heart that I'm doing a good job. A better job than I did the first time around, and my 3 little ones that are now grown (almost grown in Amanda's case) turned out to be great kids. If I had the energy, stamina and health to do this until I was ancient, I would love it! But, alas, they grow up. (Yes, I know...I will always be a Mama, but when they leave the nest, they don't want to hear, "eat all your food", "be nice so that you could put a smile on Jesus' face", and they certainly don't give you a hundred "I love you, Mama's" a day as they smother you with wet kisses and climb on your lap.)

So, there you go, 3 things I like about myself. This time, I AM tagging. These unfortunate lucky souls (sorry girls) whose blogs I love reading, not to mention seeing pics of their beautiful kiddos, are:

Jill @ Life At Killeny Glen

Tina @ One Blessed Nest

Tracey @ Life With 4 Sons

Have fun everyone!

Very interesting list. Really you can make yourself sneeze. I have Calgon days all the time. 3 very active children:)

I discovered how to make myself sneeze too on accident one day! Wow, how that would have come in handy had I learned how to do it when I was younger! lol!

Ok, I seriously cannot believe I just admitted to that! Oh well, you are in it with me sister! ;0)

I have no idea how to make myself sneeze but that is a very unique talent you got there. I too have dreams of Calgon if you read my blog several posts ago.
Great meme.

Oh I am so glad you did this!!! I crack myself up too and my kids think I am so weird!!! I will start laughing at the dinner table and they just look at me! However, I can NOT make myself sneeze....how in the world did you figure that one out?

Most of all, I love being a mom too!! And honestly, I can't wait to be a grandma!!

Have a great day!!

Ohilda,

I am new to this I have never been tagged before so I will try my best. I would have been better at "things I could improve about myself". I would have had it done already.

Thank you for tagging me!!!

I can make myself laugh the same way. Of course, no one with me thinks it was that funny but I can still remember how funny it was and get the giggles so bad!

In school, I used to get in so much trouble for giggling at other people too!

Can you please tell us your technique on making yourself sneeze??? That's just too darn neat!
