7 Facts About Moi ...

I've been tagged again by Jason ... the following are seven facts and/or strange things about me that I am going to tag 7 blogging friends with ...

* I have my nails done every two weeks no matter who is in the ER, no matter who is in ICU, no matter who is in the hospital, and no matter who is in a nursing home. It's the surgeries I hang around for.

* The color of my nails, toes and lipstick will always be from the same color palette.

* I have a lovely large prairie flower garden here, but started out as container gardener on our deck in West U/Houston. Mostly tropical, these potted plants had an entire U Haul to themselves to get here.
Now they have their own sun porch. Brats !

* My wardrobe consists of a lot of white, black and brown.
What's up with that ?

* Sometimes I get up at 3:00 in the morning and do laundry and paperwork.

* I don't ever ever ever go to bed without a bubble bath and a fresh pair of jammies. Wear them twice ??? Just can't do it.

* I don't have a House Keeper for the first time in 27 years ... I kinda sorta like doing everything myself ... but sometimes I freak out.

* I collect Ethnic Loungewear from around the world.


  1. Hey ! I really like your blog. It's funny and personal. If you want to, check out mine at , and read my "One Family" story, make a comment and/or an entry in my guestbook! I'd really appreciate it.

  2. LOL.... Laurie you are TOO COOL girl! I laughed out loud when I got to the part about "ethnic loungewear"... I don't know why that tickled me so much, but it DID! (I guess because.... thinking of the "typical South Dakotan", ethnic loungewear would NOT be something I would find in their house..... lutefisk, why YES, but "ethnic loungewear", why NO....

    You rock!

  3. Now I'm picturing my Minnesota grandmother (may she rest in peace) in "ethnic loungewear"....
    while eating lutefisk, and saying "You bet".
    You wacky midwesterners!

    I may very well be giggling about this well into the evening...

    You made my day!

  4. I am so glad you're still taking time for yourself!
