4. Visit my sister and her family out west.
5. Give my hubby a six month sabbatical.
6. Learn a great deal about people, probably quicker than I want to.
7. Other than that....I have NO clue. :)

3. one-to-one worker with special needs children
4. Counsellor in Group home for special needs

Five of My Bad Habits:
1. I love Free stuff. Will collect it until I drive my hubby nuts. Granted...I do have a large yard sale every year and make dollars off it....so It's not all bad
2. I don't consider certain words to be bad language...other people do. it's a battle to retrain myself. :) I lose often. :(
3. I am not the words neatest housekeeper. My attitude is...It'll do.
4. ???

5. in our current house on a busy street with my hubby, child, dog, cat etc......

Five Random Things (most people wouldn't know about me):
1. I have never met anyone famous, not even once...at least not that I knew (would I even know...that would be the question).
2. I am 5'10" tall, really...even if my family members seem taller at times (they are mostly 5'10" as well).
3. I have no stylist. I get my haircut only when I've cut my bangs at least twice and the rest is just starting to make me wake up feeling angry.
4. I used to get really odd dreams if I got overtired. Bears chasing me and I could never just get away from them. used to leave me in tears many a night.
5. I being outside...even just having a picnic lunch, or walking to a park, gardening, watching bunnies binking, and so forth.

5 People I Want To Get To Know Better (yep, you're tagged*!)
I have NO clue who to tag.
Most people I read tend not to read me (at least I don't know that they do). Probably because I'm not always "on" in leaving comments.
So if you do this and do know that you are MOST welcome to. Just let me know and I will link to you quite happily.
Oh well... there is
1. Holly
2. Kim
3. ???
4. ???
5. ???

5'10"? Now I feel short. Haha!

Is liking free stuff a bad habit? I have that one too.

Thanks for playing along, 'nets!

I'll try to get to this today! I've been out of the loop for a few days (traveling to Ohio for a visit) so I'm still catching up!

Kim....no rush. Would be fun to read though.

Jen...free stuff is only a problem if it threatens to take over one's household. :)
