She's ALIVE!!!

Yes, it has been over a year since I last posted. "What has happened?" you may ask. Much. Much has happened, but mostly life. Moving, homeschooling, etc. . .  has eaten up too much of my time for me to sit and compose a post. I'm sure you understand.

Then I came across this little blog challenge, and far be it from me to shy away from a challenge (anyone who knows me is laughing right now, remembering how often I quit) and I decided that maybe it would help jump start my blogging habit again.

But I'm not making any promises.

Day 1: Self portrait and 5 random facts about yourself. Here goes:

I couldn't find a more recent picture of me that I was willing to share, so here is one of my family and I at Christmas. Alli thought it was supposed to be a funny pic - hence the snarl.

Random Fact #1: I hate the sound of chewing. If you are a loud chewer, please do not sit next to me at any meal. Only problem is that I married one. Yes, good people, that strikingly handsome man in the picture above is a loud chewer. Wait, this is supposed to be facts about me, right? Oops!

Random Fact #2: I have worn a size 7 shoe for most of my life, but recently I've started buying size 7 1/2. Can feet grow with age?

Random Fact #3: I took up knitting about a year ago and have fallen in love with it. I'm still knitting small items, but I hope to start a sweater soon!

Random Fact #4: I keep telling myself that we mostly eat a non-processed diet. I mean, I KEEP telling myself this, even as I make Velveeta soup. But hey, we are trying!

Random Fact #5: I've fallen asleep during more movies than I've actually finished watching. Start a movie and turn off the lights and I'm out. It's like a lullaby to me.

So there you have it! Hoping to keep up with the challenge this month, but at this point, more than one post in 12 months will be a victory for me!

#5 made me laugh - I don't think I've *ever* watched a movie from start to finish with you. :)

Not sure why it says Phil made that comment...

I am impressed with you getting back into blogging, Donette. This is my goal also.
I really enjoyed reading your "five".
And so enjoyed our visit! Looking forward to next time!:)

Hey! You're back! Somehow I missed these first few posts, but I saw your link to day 4 on Facebook.

1. Sigh, Jeremy is a loud chewer, too, and it drives me crazy!
2. I think my feet have. I've always worn a 7 or a 7 1/2 depending on the shoe, but recently have started buying 8s at times. ?
3. Liberty wants to learn how to knit or crochet, but I am dexteriously challenged (and vocabulary challenged), so she's out of luck until I can find a kind soul to teach her.
4. HAAAA! Me too!
5. Absolutely. In fact, you will find that confession popping up when we get to day five or six or whatever day asks about our favorite movies. (I've been writing ahead.)
