Tagged Twice!

I've been tagged twice in the last few weeks and since I am catching up tonight...

First, thanks to Cynthia, I get to list 6 random things about myself.

These are all things that put a huge, can't stop smiling, grin on my face.

1. When I was a junior in high school I took Calculus. Sometimes, I would get 100% on a test. It would make my whole week. I love math.

2. I jumped out of an airplane. I was in freefall, unattached to anyone and pulled my own ripcord. That smile probably lasted for at least a month.

3.A friend and I drove from NY to UT by ourselves, two girls, me without a license (so Karen had to do all the driving) to go to college when we were 19 and 20. What fun! I love road trips!

4. I took a horseback riding class for one of my PE credits in college. I had to get up before dawn, in the cold and go out and catch, brush, then saddle my own horse - heaven!

5. Seeing my kids happy. I love it when they laugh, tell me a joke or tell me the good parts of their day.

6. Last, but far from least - I love flirting with Stan. He is really fun and very funny. Maybe a side of him not everyone knows about :)

And then, thanks to Alyssa, here is another tag...
