Tag your it!

Tagged by Jen at Chaos Among Us.

Here's what I have to do for this tagging game:

1) I must post 7 random things about me:-
  • I share a bday with Sam Houston, Dr. Seuss and it is also Texas Independence Day.

  • I love magazines. It is hard for me not to buy most of them.... even the ones that don't apply to me, my lifestyle or anything I have interest in. I just like them.

  • I used to collect business cards. I had them for all kinds of things.

  • I am pretty close with most of my family including my extended family.

  • I love Butter Pecan Ice Cream but bought Mint Choc Chip recently instead.... Its my second fave.

  • Sept 9th is a special day to me. It may seem odd to celebrate something that was so simple and that is no longer in my life, but it changed me in so many ways that I will always have a special place in my heart and memory for this day.... The day I entered Boot Camp.

  • I have always had sleeping problems. I have tried sooooo many different things. Recently tried counting (Thanks Margaret... its such a simple idea!) and it WORKED! I just had to keep reminding myself not to think of anything but the number.

2) Tag 7 other bloggers

Well I would tag people but I am not sure who I would pick!

Maybe Trapped, Esmerelda, Everyone at Mama Drama, Kyla, Margaret, GuyGM, Gman.....

I don't know. But, I'm not officially tagging any one just a suggestion!

3) Post Rules & the bloggers I tagged here.

4) Leave tagged bloggers comments on their web sites so that they know they have been tagged

The counting does work! I breathe in (count one, two, three, four) breathe out, (five, six...) well. You get the point.

I will get to this tag soon. I promise.

And I have never got above 300 on the counting. I think its a combo of focusing on the number and breathing evenly.

I used to collect business cards too. I don't recall the date I left for boot camp, but do recall the trip! I can relate to sleeping problems too. Good luck with that. My lovely wife has some remedies too.

I have not gotten past 50 yet.


Yes I have seen some of her ideas. I think I gave her some. Umm, can't remember.
The trip to boot camp... Ah what a trip. Actually it is more the leaving home for the first time, making a huge change in my life on that day that is special to me. Not soo much boot camp. :)

I have sleeping troubles, but counting never works for me. It helps if I try going to sleep while Josh has the TV on, because I have to work extra hard and clearing my mind and that seems to help. Otherwise, I think the word "Nothing." over and over again...think about the letters, picture it in my head, ect. It has about a 50% success rate. At least half the time it still takes me 1-2 hours to fall asleep. Ugh.

I'll take the tag! But it might be a week or two before I do it. I need to brainstorm on some fresh randomness.

Sam Houston's B-day?? I bet people hold kids in for days just to get that B-day in Texas.
