7 Random Things--Again

I was tagged again for the Random 7. Sweet Sara at The Estrogen Files is the culprit--actually, I am only to glad to comply! Here we go:

  1. My first car was a 1976 yellow Ford pinto. Ugly as sin.
  2. I love to watch Little House on the Prairie.
  3. I was not allowed to go to movies or school dances when I was growing up. The first movie I saw was, "The Gremlins" when I was in 7th grade. I had gone to my cousin's house in St. Louis for the week and they went. My parents never knew about that.
  4. I have a floating kidney. I can't believe I forgot that one. ( This means that it is not attached as it should be and flops forward in my stomach when I am standing or sitting. It is in its right place only when I am lying down. I was born this way--apparently.--I didn't know about it until after my first pregnancy caused it to shift or something.)
  5. I do not wear sun glasses--I don't like them. I read once that your eyes soak up good things from the sun and it keeps you healthy.
  6. Have I said before that I'm not a water person? I would like to be--it really does look like fun--sort of... I usually sit on the sidelines and watch. Waterslides are fun, but once is enough for me. I make myself go for the kids.
  7. When I have to sleep away from home, I usually can't fall asleep until around 3 am. When we are on vacation as a family, we do not schedule early activities. I just about "die" when we have to get up before 8 or 9. We are getting ready to go to the Chicago area for JBQ Nationals, and I am already dreading the wake up calls! I've tried sleeping pills for trips, but they make me feel worse than if I hadn't slept.

And there you have it-7 totally random and boring things about me!

Have a wonderful day.

I couldn't go to dances either in school. The church of Christ was much stricter back then (my mom still freaks out when I let my kids go to school dances)... I kinda enjoy being a rebel in my religion! Is that terrible or what?
Great list, love learning new things about you.

Hmm. I'm insomniac, but only at home. When on vacation, I could sleep the whole night.

Regarding the movie, did you ever tell your parents?
I recently admitted to my mom that I threw away every lunch she packed for me in the seventh and eighth grades and ate a chocolate pudding pop for lunch instead.
I was such a bad girl!!!

I'm not much of a water person either! But I have to have sunglasses.
Usually no problems sleeping for me.
Have a fun weekend.

These are great Jenna :) Your first car could not have been any worse or uglier than mine. A yellow pinto would have been heaven compared to what I drove!

I have the same problem with sleeping away from home. I have trouble sleeping, even AT home, if there's light or noise. At hotels or elsewhere, it just magnifies. I take Tylenol PM but it doesn't always work for me either. I totally feel your pain :)

A floating kidney?! Now that sounds ... umm, interesting, LOL!!

I have a tough time falling asleep when I'm away from home. I'm such a homebody and just get all out of whack when I can't sleep in my own surroundings.

Like you, I don't wear sunglasses. David doesn't either... I hate seeing people hiding behind them. You can tell so much about someone through their eyes.

Oh my gosh - your floating kidney makes me want to start a fundraiser to heal you! "Help JennaG and her floating kidney, buy this candy bar!"

And a Pinto! My, you ARE a survivor!

Cheers friend! :)

GOOD list! I don't sleep well the first night away from home, no matter where I am. I must wear sunglasses, though, since my eyes hurt so much if I don't. It's probably the contacts burning holes into my brain.

Sunglasses are hard for me to wear, too--get on my nerves.

When I was growing up, I couldn't wear jewelry--kinda strict, huh. My parents changed their mind after a while though.

I enjoy Little House on the Prairie too and Gremlins scared me to death!

I've never heard of a floating kidney....I'm puzzled at the thought of that! I am an insomniac at home but on vacation, I am usually ready for bed by 11pm. I think it's because of the excitement and all of the activities we plan. I get really tired and I want to sleep in (I never do but I want to!). The trip to Memphis sounds great! Never been to Graceland but my girls and I love Elvis and vow to go there one of these days!
