I've been tagged!

I think I'm flattered...not quite sure. And I certainly hope no one I tag will be annoyed.
I am to share 7 facts about me that of, course are basically unknown to the reading public!

1-I was an elementary school teacher for 33 years. For most of that time it was a wonderful career but I am so THRILLED not to be teaching any longer. I have great memories, wonderful friends but education has changed and not (IMO) for the better. Glad to be out.
2-I can cook but really don't want to any longer. I have proven I can get around the kitchen and now I'd like to get out of the kitchen! When I was single, my fridge was always empty. My brother suggested storing sweaters in it! I despise rhubarb, radishes and cream sauces. I have been known to have ice cream for dinner & I never met a cookie I didn't like.
3-I have one son,33 years old who is married to a wonderful woman. Together (obviously!)they gave me 2 adorable,handsome and brilliant grandsons, ages 5 and 2.
4-I have been married twice. First time for 18 years and now for almost 8. Second marriage is peaceful,calm,intelligent,funny and will last.
5-I can, but refuse to pump gas. HATE the smell!
6-I am a bleached blonde! My natural color was deep brown but I started graying in my late 30s. Everyone in my family went gray early. I saw a picture of me from a friend's wedding and I almost choked. No, I did choke! Called the hairdresser ASAP. Many people think it's natural because I'm fair with freckles and blue eyes but no, every 8-9 weeks I'm in for a touch up!
7-I basically taught myself how to use a computer with a little phone help from my older brother. I never took a course or read a book about using a computer. I don't know alot compared to some but I'm damn proud of what I can do because I figured it out myself. And that's true of alot of areas-taught myself to knit, crochet, sew, cook, garden, and how to create a shop on etsy and a blog and I'm done!!!!

Now I have to tag.
Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about YOU: some random, some weird...all devastatingly interesting.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.
