I'm It!!

I've been tagged by No Nonsense Girl (along with Special K Toni and Nicholas) to list 5 things I haven't mentioned about myself yet. here goes:

#1 -- I used to be a traffic reporter on the radio. You had literally 10 seconds to lay out the mess that is Chicago traffic and I sounded like a auctioneer at a hog selling festival. Most of the time, I just wanted to tell people it sucked and stay the hell downtown until 8pm.

#2 -- I worked in a zoo at a gift shop in the Lion House. When 2 cubs were born, they named one after me! I still have the picture when Harrison was born!

#3 -- My daughter Erin has ADHD and suffers from anxiety disorder just like me. It's really tough sometimes to be a mom and cope with the stresses of having a child with anxiety. Especially when you have your own issues to deal with!

#4 -- I almost didn't marry my wacky ex-husband. I wanted to call it off at the last minute and didn't. Let this be a lesson to all of you: listen to your little inner voice. If it tells you DANGER WILL ROBINSON -- Listen to it!!!

#5 -- I studied classical piano for years but gave it up in my early 20's because, well, there were so many other things to do. But it is one of my greatest regrets that I didn't keep studying!

Thanks for doing the 5 Me MEME. :)

I'm sorry you suffer from anxiety disorder and that your daughter does too. I know too well how anxiety is hard to manage.

(((hugs))) and I hope you'll have a great day!!!

As to #4, I did the same thing. Why oh why don't we listen to ourselves?!?

I am impressed by anyone who can play the piano. I am completely untalented in every area of music. I can hear if someone or some instrument is off key or untuned but that's the sum of my talents. You must be very coordinated.

If you didn't marry you would not have the kids.......I know some days you wonder why ya had kids cuz they be teens, but you love them. I know you do.

Huge hugs for my pal Lara Angelina!
