I was tagged by Pamela. I am supposed to list eight things you might not know about me. This won’t be easy because I am an open book. Hey, that is number one. Okay, I have to come up with 2-8. Let’s see.

2. I’m loving retirement. Of course, I’ve only been retired from teaching for a few weeks. Give me a few months. I might change my mind.
3. Because I am a workaholic–I just need to handle my stress better.
4. I am also a bookaholic. I love books. I have so many that I finally give 500 away last summer to Goodwill because I didn’t have any room for more. That room is quickly filling up.
5. I so enjoyed watching National Treasure: Book of Secrets a few weeks ago. I love adventures and puzzles. The movie had both.
6. I have started exercising again–reluctantly because I hate to exercise.
7. My favorite drink is Diet Dr. Pepper, but I limit myself to only one a day.
8. Although, you probably already know this–I adore my three granddaughters. They are so cute!
So what are 8 things we don’t know about you? Anyone game to list them here or on their blog?
Take care,
