"By the Numbers" Random Tuesday Fun

Okay, boy and girls...it's time for your regular Random Tuesday post.

As is the custom, you are invited to participate by putting your answers in my comments section or (even better and more FUN because we get to come visit you!), do this fun little meme on your own blog. Just let us know in the comments section that you've put it in our blog (so we can all come visit!).

(First off though... seriously LOVED "Heroes" last night...so glad it's back on... so glad to see Peter hanging out--and seriously not dead--at the end of the show... avoided "Dancing with the Stars" because I have such a weird-o problem with reality shows because I get so nervous for the contestants and don't want them to make fools of themselves, but I DID catch the end of Sabrina Bryan's performance and heard the judges raving about her... the girls said she did GREAT... and, of course, I know who she is only because she's a Cheetah Girl and is constantly on Disney Channel, which is absolutely the most-watched channel in our home!...)

Now to the fun...

By the Numbers

1. Age I was when I first walked:
Of course, I don't remember but Mom said I was right at 8 months. See...gifted from the beginning! LOL

2. Ag of my very first memory:
I have several very vivid memories of kindergarten (one of me crawling through a maze at the school's Halloween carnival), but I have a very vivid memory of a time that Mom says I was four. I was at my Aunt Vicki and Uncle Philip's house in College Station, Texas riding around on a tricycle outside their apartment. Funny..the things we remember.

3. Number of stitches I've had in my life:
Zero

4. Number of broken bones I've had in my life:
Zero (well, unless you count the toe that I THINK I broke last year; but I've never been to the doctor with a broken bone). And weird also is that none of the girls have ever had a broken bone either (Knock on wood!).

5. Number of cars I've owned:
Five

6. Number of countries I've visited:
Four (US, Aruba, Mexico, Jamaica; LOL...I had only three listed when I first posted and my sweet husband had to come on and comment that I had actually been to four; I had forgotten Jamaica; just thank goodness I hadn't been there with HIM; now if I'd forgotten Aruba--where we went on our honeymoon--I would have been in BIG trouble!)

7. The age I was when I moved out of my parents' house:
17 (moved into a dorm on the University of Alabama campus; of course, I came back home a few times before moving out for good! LOL)

8. Number of ex-boyfriends in my past:
Five who were at least "semi" serious

9. Number of televisions in my house:
Three

10. Number of days old I am right now:
14, 269 ( cool...go HERE to find out how many days you've been around!)

Okay...join on in!!

(And, yes, I know I'm seriously goofy, but have any of you realized that I try and make my videos match up with the theme of my post? It doesn't necessarily work all the time, but it does today. I so LOVE this song from the "Rent" broadway show and it's perfect for the post today!)

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hi, Cheryl, thanks for stopping by to see me. I don't always get around to visit everyone, but wanted to say hello!

I read through your list of questions & we have some similarities. I walked at around 9 mos., no stitches, or broken bones either.

I have been to several countries, will have to add them up sometime.

Have a good week!

Rhoda
