Ah, the old tag you’re it gig. Since I was the slowest chubbiest kid, I was always it. Not to mention, I couldn’t run without laughing. Anyway, wicKED tagged me… so now it is my turn! Woot!
The Rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
4. Create 3 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them that you have tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about “you are tagged if you are reading this.” Blah blah blah, you legitimately have to tag 3 people!

Random facts about me? 
1. When I paint my fingernails, they are never one color. I’m trying this next:
2. My mommy still knits me hats. 

My favorites. She also knits me scarves too.
3. I’m a kitchen whiz. I can cook. I take recipes and make them my own. If you cook it, I will make it better. Maybe not, but I’m pretty good. Just sayin’.
4. I don’t like playing sports. I’m uncoordinated, and waddle like a duck. I’m very competitive. Those three things do not go together. I usually end up with a limp and severely pissed off because I’m a sore loser.
I’m not uncoordinated, I just trip on air. Frequently.
5. I make cakes like Cake Boss. Okay, maybe not Cake Boss. It is usually for my son’s B-day. This year I made a resolution to make my family a cake for their birthdays, so I will get to branch out. 
This was my son’s “Batcake.” This year I’m doing a Mario 3D Land cake.
6. My answer to everything is green tea and a bubble bath. If that does not work, grab a bottle of wine.
7. I have no sense of organization. I try to, but everything just gets messed up again. Took me a long time to realize, that it’s just me. I’m scattered-brained. Although, I can find things when I need to. There is a method to my madness. Example: I read a lot. So I have books everywhere, literally. I usually read more than a few books at a time. If I need a book I know exactly where I left it, and if it’s not there, someone else moved it. Hehe.
8. I have a pair of these:
I wear them all the time. Skirts, shorts, pants, PJ’s. I wear them with everything. I really should have two pair. I really should stop sleeping in them, and wearing them without clothing.
9. I am currently building sculpey sculptures. =) One project I am doing are original sketch bookmarks, featuring characters and quotes from my books. The tassel of the bookmarks? Sculpey zombie heads! These are my version of “book swag.” I will have pictures upon completion. 
10. I am currently working on publishing a trilogy. I’ve written 3 books, 4 novellas, no-telling how many shorts, and am working on starting a new series. 
11. I’m slightly eccentric, but that’s no secret. 
I don’t mind… I’ve learned to embrace it.
Now the three questions wicKED wants answered:
1. Besides Halloween and Christmas, what other holidays do you decorate for? 
I don’t decorate for holidays besides Halloween and Christmas. I do decorate for season. Just Fall, Spring, and Summer. We have an outdoor living area with a pool, so I enjoy decorating for spring and summer with bright colors and bright flowers. I also plant a red, white, and blue flower bucket arrangement for Memorial Day and 4th of July parties. After Christmas, it seems bleek and boring. I literally count down the days till spring. 
I do, however, have a little flag pole with different flags for all holidays. Including Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s Day.
2. What is the scariest thing that has ever happened to you? 
I’ve experienced blindness. For two weeks I couldn’t see a thing. I suffer from a rare disorder called Intracranial Hypertension or Pseudotumor Cerebri. It’s a buildup of spinal fluid in the skull. My body produces more than it should. It mimics symptoms of a brain tumor (hence the pseudo name). The worst that can happen is to go blind. Which happened to me without knowing if it was permanent. I’ve had it for two years under control with medication. Good news? I might be in remission. My Neuro-optho weaned me off the medication and I have been without for over a month with no headaches. This means no spinal taps for me. This disorder is individualized meaning it’s different for everyone. I haven’t had to have surgeries or shunts like most people do. But I am in the 5 percentage that has went blind. 
I am very lucky to wake up and see my son’s growing face everyday.
February is rare disease month, and I will be blogging more on it.
3. How do you deal with negative people in your life?
I usually try to turn the negativeness around on them. Make them see a different perspective, or subtly give them a solution to a problem. It works by making them think in a different way. One thing I don’t do is say “You are such a downer.” That only makes it worse. Most negativity I encounter is in passing, even though it makes me sad, sometimes you just have to ignore it.
I tag 3 blogs that I would like to know more about:
Your questions:
1. What is the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do?
2. What song always makes you happy when you hear it?
3. What are three things you cannot live without?
Have fun! Tag! You’re it!
