7 things you may not know about me!

I was tagged! I am not even sure how to tag others yet and am so new at doing this do not even know 7 people TO tag. Oh well, I will do what I can! :0) HEHEHE@
1. When I was 2 months old my parents got into a fight because of my father's drinking and the police were called. In the meantime, my uncle, who is 12 years older than me, grabbed me like a football(under his arm) and ran the the 2 miles or so to my grandpa's house to protect me.
2. When I was 18 I went to saudia arabia for 3 months for learning and fun and I will tell ya it WAS a learning experiance! We have it soooo good in this country!
3. I have unwilling lived without electricity and hot running water for long periods of time.
4. We one lived in eastern washington and rattle snakes lived there. We were walking down to the river to take a bath(yes, I said bath-more about that later) and our dog was bit right on the nose by one of them yucky snakes! We thought he was gonna die but he didn't. He just got sick for a few days and that was that!
5. I was 14 and we lived by railroad tracks and I heard the whistle blow and blow and blow. I thought to myself "wow never heard that berfore!" and minutes later heard sirens. A boy I went to school with was walking on the tracks with his walkman and didn't hear the train. A neigbor women was on her front porch smoking a cigerete and saw the whole thing. I will never forget the look on her face that day.
6. I am secretly happy that my mom went to heaven to be with the Lord. It's sad for me not to have my mom here but I WILL see her again. Oh and I miss her EVERYDAY and think about her more than once per day.
7. Growing up I NEVER wanted kids. When I met James, my husband, I knew I wanted to have kids with him.
