My First Award, My First Meme, My First Tag

Soulbrush honored me with my very FIRST AWARD! It is the Lemonade Award. Thank you dearly Soulbrush! I am not real clear as to what it is for but I figure it means I am sweet and sour simultaneously and worth at LEAST 50 cents! I'm just excited to be thought of. Now, she has requested me to list 7 Random Facts about myself (to see what makes me so sweet and sour!) Bookmama has tagged me with my first meme. So here goes..................
7 Random Facts (about me)
1. I have been married for 25 and a half years now and a stay-at-home mom to a son (20), daughter (15) for 20 years. Christian, conservative.
2. Like to prepare desserts, decorate cakes (started out doing my kids' birthday cakes)
3. Just started painting on canvas a year ago, first since college.
4. Enjoy performing in theatre (when I can, didn't begin until age 35) have played "Amnesia" in Nunsense, "Prickly" in Magnolia , emcee events such as dance recitals and fundraising auctions.
5. Was a tomboy growing up (2 older brothers, no sisters). Played football, basketball, baseball and tennis with my cousin as the seasons changed. No teams for girls where I lived back then.
6. Love to sing but didn't sing in front of anyone until I was 35. Have performed solos in opera, contemporary christian, country, blues, gospel and broadway tunes.
7. Suffer with degenerative disc disease in neck and back, fibromyalgia, arthritis and putting off a total knee replacement (dislocated that knee in college while practicing for a dance team!)
That should put some type of picture (probably a cartoon) in the minds of some of you as to who I am. There is more that I could add either, I will get tagged again or you will have to wait for my sizzling autobiography!!!
