I've been tagged!!!

Well, here goes -- first the rules...

1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post THE RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link back to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

Suzy at Suzy's Quilting Room has tagged me!

Above are the rules and I'm not sure if I'll tag anyone else....this is my first tag, and I'm not really sure how others feel about being tagged. Hmmm, I'll work on my random things and you decide if you think I'm weird!!!!

1. I married at 17. Yes, it was a bit crazy of us. And not something I would recommend to everyone....but it worked for us! We married two weeks after I finished high school and DH was a very mature 22 year old. (LOL) The most embarrassing part was taking my mother to the County Court House to sign the papers for me to marry under age. FYI, because I know that some of you are wondering...everyone does....our first child was born 18 months later. We are committed Christians and knew this was the right thing for both of us and thought, "Why wait???"

2. I've only had one job in my entire life....working at our Church's Christian school/daycare. I worked after school and then for a year after I married, before our baby was born.

3. I have home schooled all of my children since they started kindergarten. Three have graduated and are productive citizens, one is still in school.

4. Next month is my 25th Wedding Anniversary!

5. I am a bit sarcastic and some have even said that I am dramatic.... I use sarcasm for humor and drama for fun! I did read the definition of drama to those who called me dramatic and told them, "My LIFE is a drama...I'm not dramatic!" Drama - a state, situation, or series of events involving interesting or intense conflicts of forces. Oh the stories I could tell!! LOL

6. My kids are my friends. Sure, I have friends other than my kids, but kids are great people. I'd rather spend time with them than anyone else....them and my husband. But DH and I are together ALL THE TIME!!!! See random fact #7.

7. I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom who is also full time caregiver to my disabled husband. He was officially diagnosed in 2000 with Secondary Progressive MS. He has had the disease since early 1990. He is home all the time, because he can no longer work. I take care of his ADL's and he must have someone with him at all times. MS is a stinky disease, but it is where the Lord has us. Through MS, we have both learned to trust in the Lord more fully.

Now you know a little bit about me....I will let you decide whether you want to play this little game and tag yourself. If you do, please let me know in the comments. I'd like to get to know you too!

Happy Quilting!

Hubby and I were both teens when we married . . . it's not for everyone, but we are living proof that it can work *s*
