Rules: Those tagged must list 7 random facts about themselves. They also need to write in their blogs the rules of the game, which are pretty simple--you list your 7 facts, then list 7 people you are tagging. Then you leave them comments letting them know they've been tagged.

This should be tricky as I don't think I know 7 more mommies to tag...

To be chanted in a singsong voice: you did a mee-em you did a me-eem!!!

I hate that word, too. So stupid!!

Wow, you and I have a few other things that martial arts in common here! I am a knitter (wish I could figure out crocheting beyond that first chain base - I think you, me and Becky should start a "Martial Artists who knit" blog), and a kid with ADHD.

Could you email me at windsornot at yahoo dot com? I have some questions for you, if you don't mind, about your kids' ADHD. Mine just got diagnosed, and I feel parents usually have the best information. Thanks!

I LOVE crochet. I haven't had the time in the past years to sit down and do it, but I love to crochet. I've made everything from action figures, to throws.

There is such a calming repeditive movement of the hands, and mind that makes crocheting relaxing, and interesting. Nice to see that you enjoy it also.

You and I both tagged Miss Chris!

You could always tag me - I've already answered both memes. It would be nice and circular.
