Read at your own Risk.

So, Slouching Mom tagged anyone who wished to participate in the Stuart Smalley 10 physical attributes Meme'. Since I am just getting the hang of blogging, and still search for things about which I can blog and feel good about the result, I will take her up on her offer.

1) I have been told that I have feminine hands. Since I played the piano, I also discovered that my fingers were long and slender, which apparently is a good thing. At least pregnacy and childbirth has not changed that particular feature on my body.

2) I have friendly eyes.

3) I have a Big heart and by many this is considered a bad thing since I tend to wear my feelings on my sleeve and am very obvious about how I am affected by something or someone.

4) I am loyal and authentic. What you see is what you get.

5) I am a Real Friend, honest and compassionate, dependable and trustworthy . I will go the extra mile for my true friends, helping whenever physically possible, being there for support, whatever is needed.

6) I have high expectations of myself as a member of the female gender, as a mother, as a daughter, as a sister. The way I see it, without high expectations a person can become complacent and comfortable and fail to set new goals.

7) I consider myself to be a good mother. I did not use the word great, see above question. I learn from my children every day, they are incredible teachers and full of wisdom. I listen to my children. I am raising boys that, despite the lack of father figure, are turning out pretty o.k. I hope that, for my girls, I am providing them with a strong, female role model. Above all else,I teach my kids respect for themselves, others, and the environment because I consider this important beyond measure.

8)I really, really, really, really want to go skydiving. I crave adventure and the unpredictability of it. Shhhh, that is a secret. I don't want my kids to find that out!

9) I like my own space. I don't like someone else in my space for any reasons. I am listing this as a good thing, because I am running out of things to say and as long as someone maintains a certain awareness of my space, technically it can be a good thing.

10) I am affected by smells, fragrances, scents. Seriously affected. Sometimes in a good way, often in a bad way. Cooking aromas, perfumes, fragrances, etc. Certain fragrances make me want to run from the room frantically gasping for air. Many times I just give up and breathe through my mouth so as to save myself the trauma, although at times that can mean sacrificing the pleasure. Strange thing about me, I know, and not sure how it fits into good things, but nonetheless, is a fact.

Thanks Slouching Mom for the unofficial tag. For any of you who read my blog (and I know you are out there lurking) and have not yet visited SM's blog, look over to my blogroll, as I haven't yet been able to add a link within the text of my blogging, and check her out.

Hey! Aren't you sweet to send people my way!

Gosh, piano hands, like me. And you're right -- they never show extra weight.

I've seen that big heart in you -- I'm not surprised to hear you say it.

Hi! How courageous of you to take this up, I had to be pushed, kicking and screaming into SM as well.

To add a link within your post, highlight the word you want to turn into a link and then push the link icon at the top of the post you are writing and it will give you spot to fill in the web address. Also, I used this site: to help me figure out simple things that everyone else seemed to know.

Hope that helps!

I'm working on this one too. But I can promise you that I won't be stealing #8 from you! Definitely not one of my virtues.
