Mercedes World, that's Meredith, tagged me today. Here are the rules of this particular meme: Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. My house is always clean but my counters are always cluttered.
2. I am not particularly fond of shopping, unless it is for buying plants and gardening tools. I'm a sucker for nursery shops in spring and summer...oh, let's be honest, even in fall and winter I at least troll the online catalogs.
3. I have sleep apnea.
4. My father was on the cheer squad for the Green Bay Packers in 194? Yes, I am a Packer fan.
5. It is challenging for me to read a book cover to cover. I usually read ahead and then go back and fill in the gaps as I find the time.
6. My mother grew up on a Wisconsin farm. Sundays at Grandma's and Grandpa's were a big part of my childhood.
7. I lived in San Francisco on my own, at age 20, for one year.

Some of the bloggers below know I am a regular reader and others don't know me from Adam (or shall I say Eve). Give 'em a read; we're all connected, in one way or another.

1. Quiet Life
2. Learning to Live
3. Time for Change
4. Piffle
5. A Snowball's Chance In...
6. Poetry and Ideas
7. The Happenings in NYC

I kept wondering who the person on my stat counter from Seattle was, now I know!

Thank you for the tag, though it may be a couple of days til I get to it. And thank you for being a reader!

I'm so glad you stepped forward and said "hello"! (And, Hi!, Jen!) I'm bad with memes but will cheat with the following unrandom 7 things that I thought as I grinned reading you list:

1) I, too, love gardening. As my kids grow and need my constant attention less, I'm happy to see that I'm getting more time to do it.

2) I spend more money on plants than on any other thing for me, not counting food.

3) I am mostly from Portland, OR, but now I now live in rural WI.

4) I am a compulsive reader.

5) We are, of course, Packer fans, but I will always love the Seahawks, even though I don't follow them. Best helmets in the league.

6) My sister lives in SF.

7) My husband was a teacher (now a principal), as was my dad and his mother.

Thank you for choosing me...I have done this meme this summer...but perhaps I will stick it in my pocket for a day that I need a bloggy idea.

I loved reading your answers.

And I don't like shopping cause I worry about spending money...but I love grocery shopping because it is a necessity. And I even go to Whole Foods as a splurge from time to time. :o)

And just for good measure.....

Go Pack, Go!!!

Hey Teresa! Thanks for participating. I wish I would have went more random with my tags. I guess if I would have read closely, I would have noticed the word random-haha! My boyfriend is a sports fanatic-knows absolutely anything and everything about almost any sport. I do watch the Packers. Can't say I am a fan-can't say I'm not either. I am a Colts fan-Peyton played at University of Tennessee-Go Vols!

Have a great rest of the week. This has actually been the best week for my class-my prayers were answered. Pajama Party on Friday-so much fun.

Type to ya later gator!

Teresa, you tagged me, and I want to respond, but I am a novice at blogging and don't know yet how to link. It's a complete mystery. I had to look up "meme," and am still not sure about that. Since you are a teacher, perhaps you can enlighten me. Thanks for your kind comments on my poem. Troy, poetryandideas.blogspot.com
