25 random things about me!

This is a fun little game on Facebook. I had so much fun making the list, I decided to post it on here as well. I plan to try to come up with 25 more of them sometime soon! (This is actually a 'tag-you're it' game, but I'm not going to do that.) Tell ya' what, if you think it's something you want to do - then do it! Let me know in my comments! Enjoy!

1. I am an obsessive compulsive hand washer. Seriously, I wash my hands about 50 times a day! I can not STAND for them to be dirty. Totally creeps me out & I can’t focus on anything but the fact that my hands are grubby! In fact, I rarely wear lotion ‘cause it feels too grimy & I immediately feel the need to run right to the sink to wash it all off! Insane, I know. I’m also a complete germaphobe!

2. I can’t drive a stick. I’m 27 years old & can’t honestly say I’ve ever ‘successfully’ driven one. It’s automatic or nothin’ for me!

3. I LOVE to sing. It’s probably my favorite thing to do in the world. I sing all day long. In the car, getting ready in the morning, in the shower, at my desk at work, to my girls, while cleaning house, probably in my sleep, who knows…?

4. I can tolerate a back rub for about 10 minutes & then I start to get annoyed. (Especially if it’s in one continuous spot.) It drives me NUTS!

5. I have a patch of gray hair that gets thicker, the older I get. I started getting them when I got pregnant with Peyton. If I don’t color my hair like every 3 months, they start to really show! And I lose TONS of hair, daily. It’s unbelievable- perhaps even a little scary - the amount of hair that just falls out of my head! Joe complains about it every time he steps into the shower.

6. My biggest fear is death. Even tho’ I know it’s inevitable, it still creeps me out & I don’t think I’ll EVER be ready for it. 100 yrs old or not! (Joe thinks I’m weird ‘cause I hate to even discuss it with him.)

7. Laundry is my favorite household chore. (I actually kinda’ dig it!) Dishes, is my least favorite.

8. I am particular about soda pop. I only like Dr. Pepper out of a fountain machine, Pepsi out of a can & Mt. Dew out of a bottle. But I prefer it all on ice. (And don’t get me started on which places have better fountain pop than others!!)

9. I heart sleep. I can’t get enough of it. I would sleep 14 hours every night if I had the chance. (Oh, and speaking of sleep – apparently I speak jibberish while sleeping. My husband thinks I actually know some other bizarre language that I’m not even aware of.)

10. I was 20 yrs old the first time I went to the dentist. (And I had 18 cavities!!) I now go every 6 months for cleanings.

11. I truly believe that mothers of colicky babies get a free pass to heaven!

12. The furthest places I’ve traveled are Dallas, TX; Rochester, MN; Carlsbad, NM and Worland, WY. Maybe someday I’ll get to see an ocean…

13. I am constantly saying lines from movies. It’s one of my favorite past times from growing up with my brother. We used to do this all the time. He’s the only person I know, who can literally memorize an entire movie, line for line! Fun, fun!

14. My mom has always been and will always be my BEST friend! I can only hope & pray that my girls & I have the same relationship that she & I have.

15. I attended the county spelling bee EVERY year in grade school and Jr. High. And there was never a year I didn’t place. In fact, I even went to State in the 8th grade!

16. I hate to read. Don’t get me wrong, I know HOW & really am rather good at it, just don’t like to. I lose focus too soon. (I secretly think I have a bit of Attention Deficit….. Hey look, there’s a bunny!.) Therefore, reading short stories to my daughter is about my speed.

17. I have never broken any bones or had any stitches. (Knock on wood…)

18. I am extremely superstitious!! (Hence the ‘knock on wood’ phrase in the above statement.) I stay completely away from ladders, I don’t open umbrella’s inside and black cats scare the BehJesus outta’ me!!

19. The slightest things give me headaches… like these kinds of surveys.

20. I really regret never learning how to play the piano. My mom tried to teach me several times when I was younger, but I just didn’t have the interest at the time. (Nor the attention span...)

21. I love my kids more than anything in this world! But, I could never be a stay at home mom. I’m just not built for it! Come Monday, I’m READY to go back to work!

22. I have a weird thing with some foods. I only eat popcorn with milk duds. I have to have peanut butter on my pancakes/waffles. And I think if I could honestly only choose one thing to eat day after day – it would be pizza!

23. I am not a ‘cuddler.’ My poor husband hates it, but I just can’t fall asleep unless I have my own ‘space’! Plus, I get too overheated. And there’s nothing worse than to wake up, sweating!

24. I don’t do roller coasters. Absolutely hate ‘em! They give me the creeps. I like to go to amusement parks, just won’t get on many rides. I’ll wait for ya’ & hold your stuff tho’!

25. I used to be one of the most organized people I know. However, for the past year, I’ve felt this really slipping. It scares me terribly, that I may not ever be again! Especially, because other people’s UNorganization used to be one of my biggest pet peeves!!
