My list

19 things about me! I tried hard to get to 20 but I could not come up with #20. Smile

1. I've been blogging here since 2008
2. I am the fourth child of seven children
3. I am the youngest of the girls in my family
4. I grew up in a Caribbean island
5. English is not my first language
6. My grandfather was an American soldier stationed in an Air Force base in the Caribbean.
7. I've never met anyone in my American grandfather's family.
8. I married at 20 years old and I've been married for 26 years.
9. I'm a teacher by profession.
10. I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder during the winter.
11. I don't like to cook but I've been told that I'm a good cook.
12. I've struggled with weigh issues all of my life.
13. I love dogs.
14. I have two sons.
15. I can't function in unorganized spaces and my home is clean and organized most of the time.
16. I am Catholic even though my parents were not.
17. I am a loyal to my family and friends.
18. Growing up we were very poor and there were times when we went without gifts for Christmas, which in my opinion is a very painful experience for a child that can't see passed the true meaning of Christmas.
19. I can't stand olives, I tried them and I gagged so badly (you know what happened after that).

    Im not a big fan of olives, but enjoy them in certain foods. Pizza with black olives, and greek salads are about it for me. I learned several new things about you in your list, thank you for sharing!!!

    Very interesting list! What's your first language?

    Olives were definitely an acquired taste, but now I love them. But AS can't stand them so I don't cook with them; just buy them as a treat sometimes.

    I can't stand olives either!

    Interesting. I am curious about the SAD. Is it from lack of sun? And how bad does it affect you?

    I too am curious about the SAD. I love olives, but I rarely eat them because no one in my family likes them.

    SAD affects me during the winter time due to not enough sunshine; for the past two years, I resorted to seeing my doctor about it but I do not like the side effects of the medication. This year, I'm trying a regimen of homeopathic remedies of supplements, tons of green veggies, very little sugar, light box, outdoor time and warmer weather getaways. I hope it works!

    Ceejay74, Spanish is my first language and I'm fully bilingual, I can read, write and speak both English and Spanish fluently.

    #15 - would you come out to Nebraska and help me get my place clean and organized? I really prefer it that way ... It just doesn't seem to stay that way.

  8. NJDebbie Says:

    Ha, ha, if I lived in Nebraska (which will be horrible for my SAD)I'd definitely help you!

  9. frugaltexan75 Says:

    Yep, Nebraska probably wouldn't help your SAD very much. Smile
