July ICLW - A Hobbit, By the Numbers

Greating Humble Readers... 

I'm so glad you stopped by!  I'm not here right now, but I will be back in a few days.  I hope you find something here that makes you smile. 

About a year ago, I did an ICLW intro that was me by the numbers.  I thought I would update that post, as many things have changed in a year.  (Of course, some things never change)

59 - the number of times I have moved in my lifetime.  It's a bit of a pride issue now.

35 - how old I am at the moment

25 - the number of states I have visited.  I want to visit all 50 before I die.

21 - the number of children in my grandmother's family... she was the oldest.  Great-grandma sure didn't deal with IF! (also the number of weeks pregnant I am at the moment)

10 - the number of years I have worked as a retail book sales.  I love my job, but I am am sooo looking forward to mat leave

9 - the number of nativity sets I have in my collection.  (I really wish I could keep at least one out year round)

8 - the number of my mom's homemade perogies I can eat in one sitting (they're huge!)

6 - the number of parents I have had in my life

3 - the number of years I have been married to my Beloved.

2 - the number of angel babies I have in heaven, Emily Hope and Olivia Noelle

1 - the number of little halflings baking away inside me right now

What are some of your numbers?


  1. I love this post :) Hope you are enjoying your trip :)

  3. You know, Mrs. G, it's your house. If you want to leave a Nativity set out all year round, that's your choice!

    Still praying for you and the Halfling.

Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
