7 Things About Cris

OK, I have been tagged by 2 people for this so guess I'd better do it!! I am to list 7 things about myself that may be unknown to most (some) of you. So here goes!!

1. My undergraduate degree is in Agricultural Business. I was 3 credits away from graduation and had a guaranteed job as a grain merchandiser with pretty great pay when I decided I hated it. I liked kids and I liked to work out, so a friend of mine told me I should shadow a PT at a Peds clinic in Lincoln. I did, liked it, applied for 3 PT schools, chose UNMC, and the rest is history!
2. I was unofficially engaged 3 days after meeting my husband. I got my ring at 2 weeks, but we had decided to get married on day 3.
3. One of my favorite meals is white rice, peas and ketchup. (Yep, canned peas, Delanie!!)
4. My name doesn't have an "h" in it because my Dad thought it looked too much like "Christ" and "Christmas" with the "h". Not that he doesn't like those things, just not for my name, I guess!
5. I once swam with sea lions off the coast of Mexico. My friend and I got so far away from the boat and close to the sea lions that the "bull" dove into the water. Apparently he found us threatening. Call me crazy, but I don't think that's very flattering!
6. When I was a kid we didn't have enough Ken dolls for my friend Sara and I to play with, so I cut the hair off one of my sister's Barbies and hid it behind a dresser. In all fairness, it was this doll that came with a horse she had gotten and it was really more masculine than feminine anyway.
7. This one's kind of serious. The night my Grandma Hall passed away I had a dream about her so vivid I can still remember it clearly, 10 1/2 years later. She was so young and vibrant looking, even after years of suffering, that I have never doubted the splendor of Heaven since.

So there you go!!! The sad thing is, I don't have 7 more blogs to challenge to do this - in fact, all but one of the blogs I follow have already been tagged. So I guess I'll "encourage" my friend Megan L. to do this. It's kind of fun!!

We're so glad you chose PT over being a grain merchant! And thank goodness the sea lion didn't get you! Very touching story about your grandma. Thanks for sharing!

YUCK!!! Canned peas!! Really? I'm glad you are a PT instead!! And, you now have something else in common with Natlie since she liked to torture Barbie's and her sister's dolls!!! Isn't this fun!!

Hey there! I finally "refound" your blog after being at my mom's for the past 2 months! Mine probably won't be near as cool, but I will try it! :-)
