December 8 – 5 things about me:
I’ve done this type of thing a few times now and I am trying to think of something new (presumptuous of me to think that people actually read these blogs and would remember what I shared before, but anyway…) For example, I’ve mentioned that my three sisters and I all have names that start with “J;” I’ve told the story about dating my husband’s brother before my husband and I got together; that my first job was as a “page” in the local library and so on.
So, here goes with some other fun facts about me:
1) I never lie. I may not always give the complete story or I may avoid giving an answer, or phrase an answer in such a way that I am telling partially the truth. I believe that lying only leads to more trouble and the necessity for more complicated lying. It definitely is a bit of stress that I don’t need and I really don’t appreciate it when others lie to me.
2) Baseball is my favorite sport. Not to play, just to watch. The San Francisco Giants are my favorite team but I like the Pittsburgh Pirates too. When my husband and I were first dating, I realized that he was a true sports fan. He likes football, baseball, golf, basketball and I figured out that if I wanted to spend time with him, I was going to have to learn about sports. For some reason I found football to hard to understand and baseball was the most fun for me. I really got into watching it, both on TV and, when we can, at the stadium, so much so that now during the winter I almost go into baseball withdrawal.
