10 Things You Probably Don't Know About Me

Today I'm turning Daily Snapshot inward. I'm revealing "10 Things You Probably Don't Know About Me" unless you're my husband or my mother. Then you probably do.

1. I hate having my picture taken, which is why there are so few of me on my blog. I HATE having my picture taken.

2. When I was a kid, I wanted to be Helen Keller and taught myself Braille. Yes, I know this sounds odd. I might even be writing a book about it (wink, wink).

3. Doctors told me I couldn't have children. I have two -- which is part of the reason why I never listen to doctors.

4. If I could go anywhere in the world, I would cleverly choose an around-the-world trip.

5. I asked my (now-)husband out on a date one morning because I thought I was having a good hair day and decided to swing by the bakery where he worked. I'm glad the mirror was kind to me that morning.

6. I pay my children to brush my hair.

7. I still have my old Archie comic books from the '70's.

8. The first thing I ever published was "How to Make Gumwrapper Chains" in Child Life magazine.

9. I rarely re-read books. The only exception is Where the Red Fern Grows. I read that 13 times in a row when I was eleven-years-old.

10. I'm a Justin Bieber fan.

Feel free to share something about yourself. It's kinda fun. :)


  1. How fun! #2 is kinda funny, and #3 is wonderful.

    Things you probably don't know about me… I'm very particular about how I eat Kraft cheese singles. My favorite holiday is Halloween – but for the kids all excited in their costumes, not the candy. And I used to know Morse code.

    1. How fun! I feel like your particular Kraft singles eating habit and Morse code knowledge should be incorporated into a character. :)

  2. I love fun facts about people... here's some of mine.

    1. I don't suffer fools... in other words, I don't take crap from people who treat me like crap.

    2. I have never looked my age. When I was 12 I looked 10, when I was 14, I looked 11... I'm 38 and people tell me, I look like I'm 34 or so.

    3. Since I was 6 years old I have always wanted to be a writer. Once the teacher taught me to write a sentence, I realised there was something else to books than just reading them... :)

    4. I've been collecting books since I was 4 years old... when I taught myself to read.

    5. I can't stand people touching my feet.

    6. I taught myself Runic - and have my own alphabet.

    1. Great insight, Mozette. I, too, have wanted to be a writer since I was six or seven. And I collect books.

      I'll let anyone but my husband touch my feet. He's a little like Monica on "Friends."

      Sadly, I suffer a lot of fools. :(

      And I'm not sure what Runic is, but I'd love to have my own alphabet!
