It Was Just a Matter of Time.... Tag I'm It!

Mechele over at Barrow's Hodgepodge has tagged me, so I am going to try to entertain you with my musings!

*Tag 12 people and link them in your post.
*Let them know you tagged them.

Fun Facts About Me (Fun is stretching it, just a bit)

1.  My dream for as long as I can remember was to be on Broadway (I still have hope).  So I always tell my students that teachers are Broadway actors who never made it to the Big White Way.  Then I sing "Defying Gravity" or "Seasons of Love", BADLY>

2.  Teaching just comes naturally to me, I don't know why.  I actually feel that God gives me the words to say and the right stuff just comes out of my mouth.

3.  My 2 girls are my life (my husband too, but he is a big boy).  I live and breathe for them every minute of every day.

4.  I am a planner/calendar obsessed freak.  Choosing a new one each year is harder than shopping for a new car.

5.  I have to read the book before the movie or else I won't go see the movie (the reason I just read the Hunger Games trilogy over winter break).

6.  I truly believe my dog understands everything I say to her and she thinks I gave birth to her.  She literally has to be on top of me no matter what.  She is across my feet as I type.

7.  I will read anything, I mean anything.  Cereal boxes have some interesting things to tell us!

8.  I hate to clean, hate it with a passion.  I actually stay out of certain rooms in my house, just so they never get dirty!

9.  I procrastinate, profusely.

10.  I am a shopaholic, just ask my creditors.

11.  If vampires existed, I would live with the Cullens.

12.  I love being a student, just as much as I love being a teacher.  If money weren't an object, I would get my Doctorate.
