I have been tagged by Colleen to reveal 10 things about me.
Here are the rules:
Once you’ve been tagged, you have to write a blog with 10 weird, random, facts, habits or goals about yourself. At the end, choose 6 people to be tagged, list their names & why you tagged them. Don’t forget to leave them a comment saying “You’re it!” & to go read your blog. You cannot tag the person that tagged you, so since you’re not allowed to tag me back; let me know when you are done so I can go read YOUR weird, random, facts, habits and goals. Have fun!
#1 When I'm sitting down I have a habit of bouncing my leg up and down all. the. time. It's a family thing. My dad and aunt both do it and my grandfather did it. I think some people find it annoying. If I'm sitting on a bench with you I would probably drive you crazy because I would be shaking the bench. I usually don't realize I'm doing it until someone asks me to stop.
#2 I am not a perfectionist by any means. One only needs to peek into my house to see that. The little details don't bother me usually. For example, I can have several smudges on the wall and it won't bother me all that much. That is until I start cleaning the walls. Once I'm done washing the walls if I see one smudge that I can't get it will drive me insane. I will scrub and scrub and then decide I need to paint if I can't get the smudge out. But, when there was a zillion smudges on the wall it didn't bother me at all.
#3 I have always wanted to be a singer. Not as a career or anything. I would just love to be able to stand up in front of a crowd and sing and it sound good. I am in awe of people who can sing so well.
#4 I can't sleep on my back. I have to sleep on my side or my stomach. No matter how tired I am I just cannot stay on my back while I sleep. I've often thought that if I'm ever injured to where I cannot turn over I will be in trouble. I would be more sleep-deprived than I am now.
#5 I often have to kick Holden out of my bedroom at night so I can go to sleep. He will come in after Michael and I have gotten into bed and talk and talk about random things. He'll tell me what he did that day or tell me something funny that happened at work. Or redo a comedy routine he saw that day. I sometimes literally have to push him out the door because he would talk for hours if I didn't. Don't think that's weird? He's 17 and he enjoys spending time with his mom.
#6 I don't do this anymore, but it wasn't that long ago that I did. When I was driving in my car I used to sing along to the radio and pretend that I was a famous singer putting on a show. It passed the time.
#7 I used to be deathly afraid of lightening. When I was a teenager if there was a lightning storm I would take off all my jewelry and sit in the middle of the floor and make sure I was not near anything metal. I'd even do this if it was 3 o'clock in the morning. I think it's because I had heard a story about a man who was in his house leaning up against the wall when lightning struck a nail in his wall and killed him. I'm not sure if the story is true or not, but it made me spend a many of sleepless nights when I was younger.
#8 The middle finger on my right hand is fatter than all of my other fingers. I slammed it in a car door when I was 7. The finger nail on that finger never grows longer either. It's always the same length.
#9 I still have a love letter that a boy wrote to me when I was in the first grade. (I'll show my age. The letter is 28 years old.) It is written in red ink and has a big heart on it with a line drawn through it and says "You have broking my heart."
#10 About a year before I met my husband I had a dream that I would marry a guy named Michael. In the dream I was standing at the alter in a white dress with a guy in a tux. The guy didn't have a face. All I knew about him was that his name was Michael. I told my best friend the next day that I was going to marry someone named Michael. About 4 years later I married my husband. Also, before I ever met my husband I had decided that if I ever had another little boy I would name him Michael Alexander. After knowing Michael for a few weeks I asked him what his middle name was. When he said Alexander I almost fell out. I think that's the night I fell in love with him.
