I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by Skye (http://skye-lynn.blogspot.com/) to list six interesting facts about myself. Here goes nothin'!

1. I'm mixed kid...but I think the correct word nowadays is "biracial". My mom is white, my dad is black.

2. When I was 4 years old, we were traveling and stopped to eat near an Indian reservation. One of the locals accused my mom of kidnapping me because I was brown-skinned with long pigtails and looked like a little Indian girl!

3. I've been to 46 states. My dad was a truck driver and we used to travel in the big truck with him when I was a child.

4. I am currently enrolled in school and am pursuing my Master's degree in Education.

5. I wrote a novel when I was 8 years old. I came home from school one day and my mom had cleaned out my bedroom and threw it away in the trash can. I plan on writing another book one day...hopefully it won't get tossed in the trash again!

6. Four of my brothers and sisters are old enough to be my parents. I actually have a niece and two nephews that are older than me.

Hope this wasn't too boring. I just realized I'm not very interesting...

Ok...I think I'm supposed to tag four people? I tag Seashore, Amy, Karyn, and Michelle!

Yeah right, not interesting! I loved it! Thank you for participating!

Boy Hollie, we sure do have a lot in common.

As I'm sure you've guessed from my pictures, I'm white and my hubby's black so I can definitely relate to the whole "biracial thing".

My hubby also has a nephew who's older than he is. My mil had 6 children - 5 close together and then waited 11 years before she had Ernest! So basically, he was raised as an only child.

I can definitely see from your pictures how they mistook you for a little Indian girl. Your poor momma! I know how she felt. Something similar happened to me when Alaina was two. It's quite interesting to try and prove a child is yours in the middle of the mall!

Please, make sure, next time you write a book that you don't leave it anywhere near your mom! ;o) I'd love to read it!

Have a great day my friend!

Not interesting? I enjoyed that, very much.

As you have no doubt noticed, I have a "mixed" grandson...only since his dad is African, we refer to him as "colored" which is the African term.

I think it is SO cool that you travelled with your dad as he worked! That is awesome!

And the Master's degree? on top of a job and a family? Awesome.

Your post was definately NOT boring.
