25th Post...25 Things

  1. I was born in Paterson, NJ.
  2. To a teenage mom.
  3. Then adopted on July 1st - Gotcha Day!
  4. My parents thought Jennifer was an unusual name.
  5. I asked Jesus to live in my heart when I was four.
  6. Kneeling at the "throne" in the bathroom.
  7. I was an only child for 13 years.
  8. I prayed for a brother or a sister every night from the time I was four.
  9. My parents adopted 7 children in the next three years (from Korea & Costa Rica).
  10. I have lived in Virginia, Florida, Nebraska, Texas, Washington, Indiana, and now Montana.
  11. I said I'd never live in Montana.
  12. I went to a private Christian School for grade school.
  13. I skipped the third grade.
  14. I tried out for the cheerleading team in sixth grade.
  15. I didn't make it.
  16. I was home-schooled for junior high.
  17. I remember when the Space Shuttle blew up on lift off.
  18. I was watching Dallas instead of doing my school work.
  19. At junior high camp, the boy I liked said he'd pay me to eat a fly if he caught one.
  20. He caught one.
  21. I ate it.
  22. He never paid me $5.
  23. I ate another one the next week when someone didn't believe that I had the week before.
  24. I took two years to finish 9th grade, because my brother and sister spent a lot of time in the hospital.
  25. I went to public school for high school.

That was a lot easier than I thought - although I just pretty much started my life history, but oh well, it's good to get it down on "paper" at some time!!!

What a fun little synopsis of you! And I'm appalled that you have actually eaten 2 flies (that you know of). Made ya think about that one, huh?

I can't seem to get my numbers to work. Bullets work, but numbers show up as bullets, too.

Were you a Dallas fan, too? My sister and I watched it every Friday night with my mom. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!! I also have a little one that turned two last week. Sweet age.
I think we might have a lot in common. :)
I enjoyed reading about you!
Have a Happy Easter!

What about your wonderful husband. Where does he fit into this?

Jenn said...

A little suspense is good for the marriage. Besides, you were'nt part of my life before highschool. Tune in next time when...

Very fun list - and I actually already knew most of it!! Wow, maybe I really did pay attention during all those rambling sessions when we were supposed to be studying :)

I love that you ate another fly just to prove that you ate the first! You've got some starch in your bra, Momma! Good for you!
