I was tagged. . . .a bitter Insomnia respnse!

I got into the bed over an hour ago. And now, I’m back at my computer. INSOMNIA! It stinks. I was all prepared to go to sleep b/c I moved furniture today. I even went to the gym earlier this afternoon for my regular exercise (Yes, I’m exercising now) I’m surprised at how much I enjoy it. There is no reason I should be awake. I didn’t even take a nap today. So, I take this time to respond to a tag by Bowrag.

1: Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves which others do not know about them.
2: People who are tagged need to write in their own blog and post these rules.
3: At the end of your 8 random facts post, you must select 8 more people and leave a message at their site that they have been

8 facts about me:

  1. I’ll be 30 in two months and I don’t feel that old. It feels like I just graduated college.

  2. Christmas music is my favorite genre of music. I can listen to it year round.

  3. I’m getting to point in my life where I can’t stand too much noise. This has shocked my mother b/c I could have the radio and TV on while talking on the phone. In the car, I’d rather ride in silence than listen to music. Which leads me to #4 . . .

  4. I have become a serious “book on tape” fanatic. I listen to them in the car. It’s peaceful.

  5. I had the privilege of living in Italy when my mom got transferred there for her job. I was a senior in high school at the time and I hated her for it. I didn’t make the most of this experience. I now regret that.

  6. I can hear my neighbor snore through the walls at night and but, tonight I hear a repetitive banging. I wonder why?

  7. I am extremely insecure . . . especially about my size. I am finally doing something about it. I just wish it was a quicker process.

  8. I think there is some truth to Monique’s book Skinny Women Are Evil. Forgive me, skinny friends, it’s just the way I’m feeling tonight.

Now, I don’t like forcing someone to complete this activity. However, I will list people that I’d like to hear from. But I’m NOT notifying them they have been tagged--which technically means they haven't been tagged. If they read it and do it, fine. . . if not, fine.

Books on tape ROCK. That is how I first "read" Harry Potter. And if you haven't listened to those books, I encourage you to do so. They are fabulous. The narrator is AWESOME. I always save them until I take my annual trek across South Dakota. That 9 hour drive (one way) would be torturous without those books.

How sweet of you to tag me; unfortunately, I did this one on my blog a few weeks ago. By the way, I can really commiserate with moving (and moving other's stuff!) My principal has moved me six times in six years. My new motto for the year is, "Put me down and keep me down!" (I have to keep going downstairs for special needs kids, then coming back up to join the rest of my team.)

Well here I have tagged you for this only to dicover you've already been tagged!

As for the insomnia/gym connection - on the rare occasion that I drag myself to the gym, I usually find that I end up awake into the wee hours of the night as well...
