Thursday Thirteen 5

Thirteen Things about Kim, myself (that I like)

Okay so it's late. Sorry. But I did take the challenge to find 13 things about me that are good or I like about little old me.

1 I have red hair

2 I have 3 beautiful daughters

3 I have a strong personality but can easily adapt to my surroundings

4 I believe myself to be a decent amateur photographer

5 I like to read

6 I like to crochet (and feel that I'm good at it) and would like to teach myself how to knit

7 I like to be very involved with my daughter's school through PTA and volunteering (wait til her new school gets a load of me!)

8 I make sure that I keep communication lines open between myself and my older daughter. When I ask what she did in school today and I get the famous "nothing" answer I keep asking questions until I get more detailed answers.

9 I think I'm a decent wife. I'm loyal and faithful and I love my husband very much.

10 I absolutely love blogging. I can't even begin to explain how much. Of course, if you are reading this, there is a good chance you feel the same so I don't have to explain.

11 I love going to a good church that lets me get involved. I have been know to throw myself into volunteering (although time has not been on my side lately). I cannot wait to get settled in my new home so that I can start that part of my life again.

12 I'm strong in troubled situations. Once, 5 years ago, my oldest daughter got herself caught in a babydoll highchair so that she was choking and couldn't breathe. It was the only time I ever saw him do it, but my husband froze in fear. I mustered up some adrenaline strength and pulled the well built highchair apart.

13 I'm pretty handy around the house. Maybe I hate cleaning but I love painting and tiling. I taught myself how to use a miter saw two weeks ago. It's not the actual act of doing the project, it's the pride in the finished product.
