10 random facts about me...

...i am in a good mood today - only a couple of weeks before the baby is born - our doc check up went well - the TX heat hasn't hit yet - and i ran 3 times in the last 4 days...oh yeah and YIPEE OUR CONTAINER ARRIVED! now to a lot of you, that might not mean a lot to me that means not having to tell customers "i am sorry but the stuff you want is out of stock" - it isn't anymore - at least a lot of it. i watched them unload the container yesterday and there was stuff jam packed in there - all MR stuff - i could have gone swimming in it like Scrooge McDuck from the Duck Tales did in his vault of money - but I would be swimming in tins and tins of chipboards and slides - LOL!

... deb and i were just chatting about how far we have come in 3 years. it is a bit overwhelming but very cool. the cool part is that we do this for the most part ourselves. from visiting the factories that make our stuff, to designing our stuff, to doing our catalogs, we have all the control 2 anal-retentive Valedictorian need (LOL!). but i don't think we would have it any other way. and it helps us to understand our Maya Road business model b/c we understand the costs behind it. and 2 brains are better than one even when we duke it out...

and i was thinking that with all the months of baby talk, i needed to think about what it was that makes me - well - ME. so i am going to do a page about 10 random facts about me this week. and here are the facts:

1. i ALWAYS wear socks to bed (except for the last month, this baby thing has my temp all jacked up)
2. nope, i do not comb/brush/style my hair every day (maybe 1/x month).
3. i always chew 4-5 pieces of gum at once.
4. if i could i would eat ketchup on EVERYTHING (but i gotta exert some self-control).
5. i understand enough about sports and cars to be dangerous.
6. i am so not a neat freak.
7. my hands are as big as or bigger than a lot of dudes.
8. i have eaten ant eggs before (in mexico - no it didn't taste like chicken). also had some armadillo, cicada shell soup and very stinky cheese.
9. i am not a great speller but no big deal - we all have stuff we are good at in life!
10. i plan on running a marathon next year and hope to be in shape to qualify for boston (to be only 8 mins and 52 sec away breaks my heart!)

have a great evening!

PS our CHA Summer products kick so much butt! i just got some samples and i am in love!
