25 Random Things about Me

As a way of rejuvenating my blog and my writing, something I've been wanting to do for awhile now, I signed up for Brave Blogging via the ever-impressive Andrea Scher of Superhero Designs. I've taken many-a class from Andrea and I'm really excited for this one.

Our first prompt - a favorite meme - "25 Random Things about Me". Here we go:
  1. I really am a redhead, despite my hair looking fairly brown.
  2. I didn't get married until I was 37.
  3. My first kid was at 38.
  4. My favorite food is popcorn.
  5. I haven't had more than 3 alcoholic drinks in a year in over 5 years.
  6. I enjoyed being pregnant.
  7. I wouldn't mind being pregnant again but I'm terrified about having a kid now when I'm 41 now and probably wouldn't pop one out until I'm 42.
  8. But I worry that I'm spoiling my kid by letting her be a single.
  9. I love to run.
  10. I don't get enough time to run.
  11. I used to hate the treadmill, but I'm coming to appreciate it more.
  12. I have completed 6 marathons. 
  13. I have ran multiple half marathons.
  14. I prefer half marathons to full marathons, but I signed up for one more of each for later this year.
  15. My favorite colors are blue, green and black.
  16. I know how to knit... square things - blankets mostly. 
  17. I want to learn to embroider.
  18. I want to go to Ireland.
  19. I have friends in Wales.
  20. I collect Trixie Belden books.
  21. I love the "Great Brain" series. 
  22. My favorite smells are sawdust, chocolate chip cookies, apple pie, freshly cut grass, crisp winter air, fresh rain, and my girl's hair.
  23. I love to sleep.
  24. I wish I didn't have to work, yet I love my job (most days).
  25. I have been with my boss for 9 years. He's moving on in May and I'm really nervous about who is going to come in next.

I was with one boss for 10 years, then my next one for 4.5 years and over the course of the last 18 months I've had FIVE different bosses and it's been a mess. I hope yours goes more smoothly!

I enjoyed reading this list!
