Randomly Me.

Ask and ye shall receive Shamae. Per the agreement...more fancy facts about the woman behind the blog. For more info on me, you can click here. Or even here.

*I DVR Lost, Project Runway and Castle.

*I teach the 10-12 year olds in Sunday School every week. I believe in miracles. I believe in angels. I believe in prayer.

*I rarely drive the normal way anywhere…I’m all about the fastest way. Even if it saves only seconds.

*I hate clutter. I am always throwing/giving stuff away. Some think it’s wasteful. I see it as clearing my head.

*My bestie is my husband.

*It ticks me off that the opening ceremonies for the Olympics started at 9:00pm. Sorry, my boys will not be able to participate in this WORLD WIDE celebration. Shouldn’t this be a family event???

*My boys are fully aware what PMS is, and know not to take things personally during Mom’s time of the month.

*When I graduated High School and they made a video with all the seniors telling where they thought they would be in 10 years, I was the only one who said, “Married with children.” Maybe that explains my one semester of college, and getting married at age 20.

*I’m not one to sugar coat things. I tell it like it is. The truth sets me free.

*I don’t think I am better than anyone. But I do think what sets me apart from some people is, I KNOW when I am being unfair, stupid or stubborn. I think a lot of people don’t realize when they are acting badly. This also lends to me being very hard on myself. If I hurt someone, I am aware, and it hurts me too.

*When I speak in front of people I get a rash all over my neck.

*I don’t watch rated R movies. My husband and I walked out of 2 about 10 years ago, and we never looked back.

So there you go. Completely random things about me. We are totally BFF's now!

  5. hey Meri - I feel like I know you better now! Maybe we should encourage all of us D-Moms with blogs to do this over the course of a month or so. It seems like everyone already has a little. I like knowing more about you!

  6. It is always good to know about other people and what makes them tick . Nice to read some things I did not know about you .

  7. Great post! Loved getting to know you better! See how fun this is?!?!? It's funny you said that about the rash on your neck because when I'm nervous the EXACT same thing happens to me!!

  8. I like that you don't sugar coat things.

    And I was just teaching Ethan about PMS last night.

    Knowledge is power.

    Thanks for sharing!

  12. This is so fun! Luv you Meri and I love getti g to know you better!

  13. Dear Meri,
    I have been reading your blog for three months. Your words have brought tears to my eyes more than once. I am the mother of a beautiful 4 y.o. boy who was diagnosed at 21 months. His diagnosis rocked our world in ways that I never knew existed. I have an amazing husband and an amazing life, yet there are days when I am overwhelmed and saddened beyond words. Please know that your posts, more than once, have provided me with the courage to persevere. Thank you. You are an inspiration to me. Your children are fortunate to have such a strong and articulate woman fighting for their lives.

    I was wondering if you might share the contact information for the training facility of your alert dog. The idea intrigues us and we have just recently started to research the options.

    Again, thank you for your posts. What might seem trivial to you, provides me, a 35 y.o. mother of three in Michigan, with a sense of community that is not found in my day to day life. In moments of distress, when I look around and fail to find an understanding shoulder, I remember you and remind myself that we, too, can live an astounding life filled with excitement, laughter, and achievments, despite the angst of Type 1 Diabetes.


  14. Love it!!! I love that your boys know what PMS is. Cracked me up!

  15. Wonderful list Meri, loved every point :)
