16 Things

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 16 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 16 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. (this is a facebook thing, but thought that it would be great on this blog)

1. I have 80% hearing loss in my left ear and 20% loss in my right ear, If you whisper something to me, I might just hit you (I am sick of that response ;). And yeah, I need a hearing aid, but don’t have one… yet

2. I have lived in 3 States: CA, NV, and MN (and hopefully counting), which goes along with having gone to more than 16 schools during my educational career, hence I no longer fear being ‘The New Girl’.

3. I used to play the violin, when I was younger, I wish that I never would have stopped.

4. I was conceived 18 months after my Mom and Dad got a divorce… It was a ‘One Night’ thing, hmmm, I WAS meant to be! LOL, personal I know…

5. Cleaning, organizing and decorating are passions of mine… If I am stressed they relax me!

6. When I was 8 years old, while living in Reno NV, I was in a drug raid. My step Dad had a meth lab in the kitchen. Unfortunately for him we lived 100 feet from a school, it ended up becoming national news! Both My Mom and him were facing 25 years to life in prison, they got off on illegal search and seizure. Thanks to God, who knows where I would be today, probably not in MN!

7. I have never used an illegal drug in my life; I haven’t even ever smoked a cigarette.

8. I own a sleep number bed, and it is amaaaazing! It comes highly recommended by me!

9. Being a Mom to Madilynn has been the most Fun, exhilarating, and meaningful thing that I have ever done in my life. I love her with everything that is in me, because of her I want to be a better person!

10. I was diagnosed with Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma in July of this year. It is cancer of the salivary glands. I had surgery to remove the pallet of my mouth, and I am now cancer free! I currently wear a mouth prosthesis but you would never know by looking at me

11. I don’t drink soda, ever! Actually all I ever drink is Water (and wine or beer on occasion)!

12. I love chipmunks and Squirrels, they are my favorite animals!!

13. Sushi is the best thing ever!! I Love love love it, even when it is raw!

14. Boundaries, a book written by Cloud and Townsend, has been life changing for me. It has been a monumental step toward me making healthy changes and choices for myself.

15. I live alone for the first time in my life, and it might just be growing on me, although it has been a very hard transition to make.

16. I will one day own my own business… I am currently opening an online shop, YAY!.

If you decide to repost this please post it in my coment section, I would LOVE to read yours!
Thanks, Becca
ps
I am feeling better today...

Hey, wanna go into business together?

Oooh... my word verification to post on your blog this time is "equat"

I should give it a meaning.

LOL, you crack me up!

I am all for going into business as a team, honestly if you want to, let me know. There are a few girls at church that are on the same page as me, and I honestly don't think that it would be as hard as everyone thinks that it is!
