1- I spent about 75% of the time between the ages of 8 and 13 on crutches... stupid foot.
2-Although I grew up in Colorado I never went skiing until winter of 1998 - I hated it.
3-I like to re-arrange my furniture every 6 months... and coincidentally that's about how often I vacuum behind the entertainment center!
4-I don't eat chocolate... whether that makes me a bad American, a bad Christian, or a bad Woman in your eyes - I can't stand the stuff, it smells nasty to me.
5-I read obsessively. This is not a good thing - Hubby knows by the big red box on the Calendar that a new book is coming out and that will mean 3 things: Don't plan any family time, Expect Pizza for dinner, and make sure you have enough socks to get through the week 'cause this lady will only move from her reading perch for occasional sustenance and potty breaks.
Tag Break - man this is hard guys - who knew it would be such a chore to come up with 7 odd things about me... maybe I'm more normal than I thought? Don't answer that. I'm sure many of my friends and family could come up with... oh wait, that brings to mind:
6-I have just an itty bitty touch of OCD - my CD's are alphabetically arranged, my shirts are color coded in the closet, and if you ever play cards with me PLEASE don't make a mess of the piles... or discard three 6's in a row... it tends to make me a little crazy :)
7-Despite all those years on crutches, I've never broken a bone... unless you count my front tooth (but that's a WHOLE other post in itself... remind me sometime, it's a hilarious story!). I've mis-aligned the growth plates in my wrist - I've had bones removed (a little tiny one in my foot) - I've had all SORTS of things go wrong with infections and the like, but no broken bones.
Okay - that's 7, and yes, it was crazy hard... now I have to pick 7 of you to tag... and you might just want to hold on because frankly there are only about 10 people that I KNOW come here often enough to be tagged... so you're gonna get it eventually, and maybe twice - so just save them up and do them all together? okay, here are the lucky winners in no particular order because I'm just wracking my brain trying to come up with 7.
Chelsi - because I KNOW she laughed at all my medical mishaps and the OCD (and she's the only one I know who beats me to straightening the pile)
Janet - because one of these upcoming tags is from her
Erin - also because I've got an Erin tag on hold
Megan - because she's my kids favorite aunt... or at least that's what she says
Firefly - because she's lurking around here and I like to point out that some Non-Family DOES show up. Besides - she's a cool yogini (I think that's the word)
Mariann - because she's been blogging about bugs a lot lately... and refrigerators... and I am dying to see what she does with this
Darcy - because she hasn't posted anything new in 2 weeks and sometimes girl - you just gotta put something mindless down! Usually her stuff is nice and deep and meaningful (and beautiful, she makes some GORGEOUS quilts) and while that is a wonderful break from my "stream of conscious thought" writing - I just want to know what's UP?
Don't feel bad about being left out - and don't gripe about being tagged... I tell you what, if you really feel the need to comment you can just tell me what you think the proper spelling is for the sound the kids make when they stick out their tongues and blow a raspberry... I'm going with PBBLLTH for now, but I'm up for suggestions. Are there differences according to regional dialects? Maybe it's the #8 odd thing, but this question has intrigued me for years... (no, not really, who do you think I AM?)
