Tag! You're It

I was tagged by Jan @ Eating Y.A. Books. Thanks, Jan!

Rules of the game:

Accept the tag and link to the tagger at the beginning of your post.

Answer the questions honestly in your post by listing four things.

Pass on the love by picking four other people to tag and listing them at the bottom of your post. Notify them that you tagged them.

4 Things That Are In My Handbag
- A 4-section, mini notebook where I write down books I want to read, things I need to do, gift ideas, music I like, and all sorts of other things.
- My wallet which is stuffed full of receipts but usually very little cash!
- Cell phone (I never carried a purse until I had a cell phone - then it became too much to carry in my pockets).
- Reading glasses, a new addition!  How come print keeps getting smaller?

4 Favorite Things In My Bedroom:
- 3 pillows each for me and my husband
- My journals - a daily one, a Joy Journal, vacation journals, and more!
- My dark sock, on my nightstand, for covering my eyes when the morning light wakes me up too early.

4 Things On My Desk: 
- My very old eMac, severely outdated but still loved!
- My new MacBook, only when it needs to be charged.
- A picture of my niece when she was a baby.
- 10 years' worth of Family Fun magazines (I write for FF)

4 Things I've Always Wanted To Do (but haven't yet):
- Travel all over the world
- Take my kids all over the world
- Publish a memoir
- Did I mention travel??

4 Things I Enjoy Very Much At the Moment
- Reading 
- Camping
- Family road trips
- My book groups

4 Songs I Can't Get Out Of My Head:
Wow, it's different every day!  Here are some I hear a lot (mostly because my son plays the same songs over and over) that sometimes get stuck:
- Hey, Soul Sister
- Edge of Seventeen
- Living on a Prayer (he played this one a dozen times while doing his homework last night!)
- Dynamite

4 Things You Don't Know About Me: 
- I have a degree in Chemical Engineering, though I haven't worked in that field in a while now.
- I was born in Washington, DC, and grew up in Rochester, NY.
- Both of my sons and I all have an immune system disorder known in the US by the very misleading name Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that has dramatically changed our lives.
- I met my husband in New Orleans, where we both used to live (we both worked for a DuPont plant there and he was assigned to be my mentor!)

 4 Bloggers I am Tagging:
So many good blogs to choose from!  Here are some of my favorite blogs that cover kids/teens books:
  1.  Julie at My Book Retreat
  2. Andrea at The Little Bookworm 
  3.  Anne at My Head is Full of Books
  4.  Polishing Mud Balls
 Tag, you're it!  Have fun with it.

Thanks Sue, I will get back to you when I've posted by Tag answers. We have so many of our answers that are similar. Thanks also for feedback on my post today about Top Ten Books I'll never read. I was feeling pretty insecure about whether or not I should be so political on a book blog.

A chemical engineering degree WoW! I hope you and your sons do get to travel around he world, I think that would be an awesome memory for all of you!

It was very fun reading your answers. Somehow I knew you had a chemical engineering degree. You must of told me or you wrote in a post of yours.

You write for Family Fun magazine? I did not know that. Pretty neat. I use to subscribe to that magazine for a pretty long time.

Thanks for tagging me, when I got to the song part I could not keep Hey, Soul Sister out of my head...did not list it though because I figure it was there by default of reading your post. LOL.

ibeeeg -

ha ha - see? That's how it goes - we pass the songs along to each other! Looking forward to reading your answers!

Sue, I finally got around to creating my answers to the tag questions. Take a look when you have a minute. Thanks for asking me to play.
