Okay, Okay I've been Tagged!

So it appears I've been tagged by several people already and now it is my duty to tell all of you six things about myself. Here goes ...

1. I was raised in California, Modesto mostly. My family used to go to Santa Cruise on Saturdays to surf a lot. It was my bishop actually, that taught me how to surf. He was the one who told me to pee in my wet suit to keep warm, thanks Bishop Mills for the sound, but somewhat disgusting, advice.

2. Growing up we always went camping at Yosemite or Mammoth Lakes. I've had several encounters with bears on all my camping adventures. I also love to backpack, I even took a backpacking class at BYU-Idaho. I was able to backpack through the Olympic rainforest in Washington. Good times! My dad took some of the girls including myself and my brother and brother-in-law on a great backpacking trip in Yosemite where I was able to climb Clouds Rest. I always wanted to climb to the top of Half Dome, so someday I will.

3. I love reading! I usually average two novels/books a week. I read the last Harry Potter book in two days. I also don't mind reading the same book 4 or 5 times, spread out of course. If I didn't I would have ran out of reading material years ago.

4. I love to exercise! I love pilates and swimming! Kyrie actually loves doing pilates with me and she makes a great weight for lifting while I do squats.

5. I have insomnia. I actually haven't slept for a little over four days in a row now, so even though I'm here, I'm not all there.

6. It also seems I suffer from short term memory loss like Dory on Finding Fabio, I mean Nemo. I am constantly forgetting things. It might have to do with lack of sleep.

There. Now that I've shared some marvalous things with you, I will tag Sharee, Melanie, Tiffany, Brian, Leslie, and whoever else wants to be tagged. I don't know how many people I am supposed to tag so I'm just wingin it.

Insomnia?!! How awful. I love to sleep, and am actually feel deprived lately. And I am so with you on the memory loss. I remember the most random things from the past, but I can't remember anything that happens two minutes earlier.

natalie you are so hilarious. i don't read but like that you do.. if you need a book to read i read one lately and it is actually really good. its a easy ready book you probably finish it in a day, but it is called the autobiography of santa claus...i promise it is a good one.

Hey Nat.
I did my little tag thing, so now you can learn six amazing facts about me . I tagged Melanie too, since I beat her in responding. I can't believe you haven't slept in four days. That totally stinks! And I am so impressed that you can finish two books a week! I love reading too, but I do about one a month. I love you and can't wait to see you in like a month and a half!
love, Sharee

Have you read Stephenie Meyer's triology? They are romance novels involving vampires. I highly recommend them. I like to blame the memory loss on motherhood. Each child has killed several brain cells for me. Hang in there girl!

Natalie - you are Hillarious!! Lov your Tagged Posting. Just think of Memory loss as a good thing, when it comes to things you don't really want to do. Just noticed that Janelle thinks your hillarious too. I thought I would put two "L's" in my Hillarious for you. (actually not really sure how to spell the word)

I actually sit on the computer for hrs... in the middle of the nigth, I shoud probably do something a little more productive :) Hey, about the scrapbook stuff, I don't know why I didn't think of this before...
