Tagged - Again!

I'm catching up on some tags I've not done yet. Mommaof4wife2r doubled tagged me for the book meme and 7 facts about me.

Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions.

The book closest book to me is Child of Wonder by Ginger Carlson.

Page 56 is actually a blank page! What are the odds? LOL So page 57: A nice set of maple blocks are not only fun, but worthy in the development of a creatively thinking child. Additionally, Brio MEC, Legos, K'nex, Erector sets, pieces of found wood and sticks, boxes and other recycled materials of all shapes and sizes, and even coins or other small stacking objects are all wonderful examples of building toys that require and develop planning, critical thinking, problem solving, and imagination.

Facts about me:
1. I collect pens. I have 3 mugs full and still collect them! Whenever we are somewhere like a fair, convention, expo etc and the vendors have free pens, I help myself. Joe brings me pens when he's TDY too.

2. I also have a large collection of notepads from the same venues.

3. I have lived in 7 states and Germany twice.

4. As far back as I can remember I have lived in 20 different houses/apartments.

5. I say I'm left-handed, but it's more like ambidextrous. I eat, write, and hold the phone with my left hand. I cut, bowl, throw, and bat with my right hand.

6. I always seem to put my socks and shoes on my left foot first.

7. I don't have an artistic bone in my body; I can't draw a straight line!

Get It Down; 31 for 21

I've never known anyone that was ambidextrous before. Now I (sort of) do.

I think my kids would be through the pens and notebooks in no time. :-)

As far back as I can remember, I have lived in 7 houses/apts. and I'm older than you! Also, I've lived in basically 3 cities, and that's if you count where I lived during college. Pretty different, huh?

It's funny, those are the toys that are Jacob's favorite things.

Thanks for sharing.

When I was little I really wanted to be ambidextrous. I even would practice writing with my left hand, but to no avail. I'm as righty as it gets!
