7 things

Thanks for the Versatile blogger award. Several blogs gave it to us. Im sorry it took me so long to respond. It took a lot of thinking to get to 7 things you may not know about me or my dogs. So here it goes.
1. I was once engaged to a marine
2. Ive never drank coffee
3. I like to what old British sit-coms, like "Are you being served?" and "As Time Goes By", and "The Vicar of Dibley". They arent on here. I see them when I go to the beach and at my mom's house. They live in Ga. and get a South Carolina PBS station that I dont get. Weird.
4. When I was a little kid I stuck my hand in the toaster and turned it on to see what would happen. I also turned on the sink and left the water running until the lady in the apartment under us came upstairs to tell my mom that water was coming through the ceiling.
5. I lost my son at Bush Gardens when he was 4 yr. old
6.I use to be a neat freak. I drove my sister crazy. Now her house is neat and mine is messy
7. After having my son, I had 3 surgeries to fix my rectal-vaginal area. They said I would be ok unitl Im 50 then I could start having problems. At the time I didnt care, I was just glad it was fix. Crap, Im almost 50.
7 things about my dogs
1. I bought Roxy off of Petfinder from California
2. Roxy has never played with toys
3. Roxy stands on the edge of the tub when I take a bath
4. Micky sleeps most of the day in my bed.
5. Roxy can jump from the floor into the laundry hamper. (quit a jump)
6. Guiness used to be owned by a vet tech before going to rescue
7. Miley was terrified of cars when she was a puppy. ( guess I over fixed that problem)
Im suppose to nominate 15 other bloggers. So I put their names here but I wont be offended if you dont play. I understand, it was very hard for me to come up with those things.

That was a very interesting list of things we didn't know about you! Now we know it all? LOL! Thanks for thinking of us and we'll think about a list - we're not usually good about joining in on those type posts though.

Congrats for your award. Have a wonderful weekend!

Sara said...

Did the toaster incident require a trip to the ER? Or was that your inspiration for becoming a nurse?

Nicki said...

I've never drank coffee either. And you have reinforced my decision to not have children. lol.

Kathy Mocharnuk said...

I am SOOOO glad you came through that toaster incident, you must have been very experimental ;-). Wow, so Roxy came from my neck of the woods, that is neat.

Loved to hear all 7 things about yourself and your dogs.
I'm sorry to hear about your son :(

I have to say I knew not one single point in the list so I'm glad to know more about you :D

Dawn said...

I agree, I did not know even one of these! So you did a good job coming up with 14 new things! LOL!! And the toaster thing? Don't know why you didn't end up as a mad scientist instead of a nurse! LOL

Hope Miley's treatment yesterday went well! And that you have a GOOD DAY at school tomorrow!

LauraK said...

You've had some eventful things happen in your life! Thanks for nominating us, it's so fun to share some random facts!

Not sure I understand how to play... 7 things you don't know about me AND my dogs? 15 other bloggers? Not sure I even read 15 blogs, and most of the ones I do read are already on your list!

Amy / Layla the Malamute said...

Wow! Those things are very interesting. Most (like, 98%) of the dog/agility people that I meet are just plain boring. You know, just there. You're really interesting though, really cool. Thanks so much for sharing.

Diana said...

Loralei, yes you list 7 things we didnt know about you and 7 things we didnt know about your dogs. You dont have to list 15 blogs to play. You dont have to do it, I wont be offended, but its been fun reading peoples answers. Diana

Dawn said...

Diana - I did something similar in early August..though it was just 7 things you didn't know about me...not my dog. Everyone knows Katie! Don't they? LOL!! She's just like every other hyper active, barking maniac stubborn sheltie! :)

Morganne said...

Very interesting. I am curious what happens when you stick your hand in a toaster and turn it on. I'll post the 7 things after my USDAA weekend update.

Elf said...

Thanks for the call-out. I already did 25 things a year or two ago; I'll repost that link on my blog, pointing back here.
