7 Random Things

Wow I got tagged......Not that anyone is going to care about this but here goes...except Jessica since she is the one that tagged me!!

1. I grew up in the country with and around cows, chickens, horses, rabbits, a hog, etc. and been able to witness lots of births of many animals. I was in 4-H, FFA, judged hay once, helped grow our own veggies and use to love to drive my 3-wheeler all over the country side…I know I’m a Nerd!! Who woulda thunk it!!

2. My middle name is Ann and had always been the plan, but my mother had trouble deciding between Betty and Leslie as my first name. I glad she went with Leslie.

3. I am addicted to movies and T.V. in general but my guilty pleasure is reality T.V. such as Big Brother, Survivor, Hells Kitchen, American Idol, and Biggest Loser.

4. I use to play the piano and clarinet but now I don’t have a musical bone in my body. I do still have the same piano that my Mom, Sister and I played on.

5. Speaking of bones, I have never officially broken a bone. I think I broke a toe once but never went to the Dr. I have gone to the ER for a sprained ankle though.

6. I had always wanted to do something in Criminal Justice and ended up working for a Police Department totally by accident. I worked there for 8 loooong years. It was the most interesting job ever since I had to do crazy things like learn the Penal Code and remember it, dispatch, do research for news stations, deal with sex offenders info, and get cursed out daily by parents and oh my boss!! (AND I met my sweet husband there!!)

7. I am a very sentimental person and love heirlooms. Although my home is not decorated with new and matching furniture, most of it is furnished with antiques from both sides of my family which I love!! Some of the things I have are rocking chairs, an iron bed, glass door knob, my great-grandmothers painted wooden bowl, paper that my grandmother wrote Silent Night on in German and something very special my grandmother’s wedding book from 1918 complete with a baptism picture of her.

So not very interesting but there you have it!
