8 random facts....

I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog. Here are Karen's facts:

Food: I'm a chocolaholic; allergic to tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes, corn, wheat (all my faves!) but I make a killer lasagna.
Family: Married to Glenn for 25 years, sons, Kyle and Grant..20 and 15; Robert, 21 (our "adopted," but loved fully, kid; his wife Brandy and son Michael) my labrador, Gracie; and kitties: Lucy, Lizzie, and Harriet.
Profession: Mural artist; writer of promotional marketing material; & a substitute teacher. Ordained elder, prayer coordinator and contributor on staff of www.godswordtowomen.org.
Obsession: Egalitarianism in the church body; art; my family, books...not necessarily in that order.
Exercise: Walking and Tai Bo.
Faith: Complete and utter Jesus Freak
Ailments: Oy. I prefer not to give them cybertime right now!
Games: I love chess and computer Mah Jong, Tetris, tennis, hockey.

I'll tag in a minute...I have to see who hasn't been tagged of our community!!

You just reminded me how bummed I am that my trip to Tejas this weekend is going to be so short! It would have been so cool to have tea with you. I have a friend (another muralist) graduating from Nursing school and of course I have to show Mom some love (in the form of lunch at Joe T's!) then it's back to New Hampshire. I am definitely seeking you out when I come down in the summer!

Chess and Tetris - I wouldn't have guessed that we'd have these in common. Are you still working with school kids?

oops! Bob...I KNEW I was leaving something out. I keep adding stuff...thanks!
Yes...right now I'm on art jobs, but I plan to resume in the fall...I'm going to help a special needs class design and paint their own mural...very much looking forward to that!

This is a great list -- and there were two things that jumped out at me that were almost opposites of each other in terms of length. With your faith, your one short line said about Jesus said it all -- and there's nothing more that NEEDS to be said. With your family, it's a great and detailed list -- and I'm sure there's so much more that could be said. Isn't it interesting how two things can be loved equally and passionately, and it takes so little to describe one while you never feel like you can say enough to describe the other? Just a random thought....

Have you tried yoga? It seems to be helping some of my pains.

Mmmmm lasagna! I think I need some for lunch now!
