Thanks (and a tag)

Thanks so much to everyone who posted such kind words to me today. It really means so much to me that you took the time to do that. They were like hugs and relaly helped me today; I'm feeling a lot better. What helped:
- sunshine
- the peace and quiet of being home alone in a still house
- preparing a hearty lamb stew for the crockpot and cooking veg soup for the freezer
- prayer and scripture study
- a nap
- your lovely comments

I've also been tagged! So you get to hear some more random facts about me and you have Jennie over at Jenerbug - Queen of Crafty Ambitions to thank!

Here are the RULES......

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here we go....

1) I got married about 6 weeks after I turned 20 (I like to joke that I was a child bride). As I was still a minor my dad had to sign a form giving his permission and he used it as leverage for weeks before the wedding.

2) After I got married I continued to grow another 3 inches and a shoe size. I only stopped growing when I was around 24 or 25.

3) I had trouble conceiving Daniel but my iridologist picked up the problem and with some homeopathic remedies prescribed by him I fell pregnant the next cycle.

4) I put my bra on the minute I get up and only take it off when I go to bed - I hate hanging loose.

5) I have no formal education beyond high school. I plan to start studying for a degree next year when Noah starts school full time.

6) I can't fall asleep if I'm lying on my back, I feel like I'm falling. I even slept on my stomach the whole way through both pregnancies. My midwife said it was fine and that it would hurt me before it hurt the baby. My boys were 8lb8oz (induced two weeks early) and 7lb10oz (induced two weeks early) and I am only 5'4" so I had a huge tummy each time too!

7) I have a very good memory for the most random things - I can related, word for word, conversations from years ago or remember what I wore on a specific occasion years later. I am also a storehouse of random facts (did you know that boys get hiccups more often than girls do? It's true.)

Okay, now who do I tag? This is my third tag so I don't want to repeat anyone. Let's see ...
