Tag- You're It!

I was Tagged and I've been a bit of a slacker about responding-Sorry! I just had trouble thinking of 7 great things that are reader worthy- I'm just an ordinary, boring, typical busy mom- right?! Ok, so here is goes...

#1- I'm secretly afraid of falling. Not so much the roller coaster type of fear, nope that would make sense. I am afraid of falling...on the ground. Like tripping, falling over, slipping, being slide tackled (not good when I was on the soccer team) I absolutely wake up sweating when I have a dream about falling...I never land or get squished in the dream, but it is enough to make me wake up sweating and crying. Hate it!

#2- I can't stand going to bed with a kitchen full of dirty dishes, yet I despise doing the dishes. Even worse than going to bed with a messy kitchen- is waking up to a messy kitchen. So it will be late at night after the crowd has left and I will stand there loading the dishwasher, washing the big ones. My Hubby hates doing dishes as much as I do, so between the two of us I am amazed that they get done. I usually look at them and shrug...ok, bring it on! let's do this! Sooner I do it, the sooner it's done! See, I have to pep talk myself into getting them done.

#3- If I could eat pasta every night I would. Followed by a BIG bowl of ice cream. Not a little bowl and don't even think of putting your spoon in my bowl- I am not very good at sharing.

#4- I am glad I have a house full of girls. (no offense to boys or moms with boys or anyone boy loving) I grew up with 2 younger sisters and one brother. The brother was sick from birth and was not your typical boy. I have no idea how to play trucks, monsters, spiderman stuff and honestly don't enjoy those things as much as I enjoy dress up time. Funny because I am not a girly, frilly, dress up, makeup person myself.

#5- I dip my grilled cheese into my applesauce. It's too dry without it. I also have to put at least two slices of cheese on it...but I don't like to eat cheese. Not plain anyways, yuck! I also put pepper on my mac and cheese, but I don't think that is too odd.

#6- I am a nerd about lists. I have a list for everything. My kids know about my lists and know that if they want something it has to be on my list. I have a notebook that I put my lists in so I don't loose them- nothing worse than a lost list! I'm lost without my lists.

#7- Ok, so are you thinking I am completely weird or what?? One more, here is goes... I love the water. I love swimming. I grew up swimming, had a boat, then had a pool, joined the swim team all through school. BUT...I hate having wet hair. Hate putting on shorts over a wet suit and sitting in it and now that I am not on the swim team and have the option, I will not swim in cold water and I don't enjoy swimming in the lake, especially if it is cold. I will sit on the beach and sweat before going in a cold lake.

So there you have it, 7 things you didn't know about me and I'm sure your wishing you still didn't. I'm a bit quirky, but I love having fun and being around fun people, so hopefully it's not all that bad.

Oh crud. I tagged you too, but forgot to mention it to you when I last commented! I love these types of posts because I love learning more about the bloggers I enjoy.

I am with you on #2 - hate to do 'em, but hate to wake up to 'em. I also hate emptying the dishwasher - first chore on my list this morning.

Great list, Girlymom! It wasn't too weird at all. I have the same pet peeve about dishes, would rather stay up until 3:00 in the morning washing them than have to wake up to them, yuk! I've never heard of dipping a grilled cheese sandwich in applesauce, that's a new one! BTW the pics of your family are really cute! I'm assuming the one in the center (kind of) is your mom, and the guy in the back is your dad? They look way too young to be your parents, they could be siblings! What a handsome family you have! Have a great day! :)

Stacie said...

those are GREAT and TOTALLY reader worthy.

Also, commenting on your family look a like pictures...WOW. One day I will post a picture of me and my siblings...we all look like we have different dads...well, my brother and I have the same dad, but my sister doesn't...ANYWAY, none of us look alike...and our personalities...way different too!

Steph said...

That was fun, I liked learning all about you! And thanks for the tag, I will be doing it...sometime in the near future! :)

That is a good 7. I always stress out about these things, I am so boring.

Guess what I have post it notes all over the place with lists of things I need to do!

Thanks for the tag, I will try my best not to bore you.

Kathryn said...

Oh yeah! Thanks for the tag. I can't get enough of these things.
I am so with you on #2, #3, #6, and #7. I guess we're both weird. ;)

OMGOODNESS, I have been away from the blogging world for 2 days and I missed about 10 of your posts! LOL You are the blogging queen now.. and I am not worthy!!

I loved your lists. I love lists, too. I get giddy. I also love to swim but HATE wet hair afterwards AND being wet when you are done swimming....putting shorts on, shirt, whatever... hate that. So we can be weird together :)

Yeah, I am a list psycho as well. It's probably verging on OCD. I can't function without my lists!

KATE said...

I loved your list! Good Job!! I'm the same about the messy kitchen & doing the dishes. I hate it, but can't wake up to a mess! I'm with ya sista!
