A huge thanks for the tag from my friend at Depression Marathon! I liked her format of direct questions easier than the random facts about yourself, so I’m using this. So, here goes…
The rules are: 1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. 2. Each player answers the questions about themselves. 3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. 4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
