Tagged!

Yup, I am weird too…

I am so excited – it is my first time – I have been TAGGED!
Thanks BooMama – I am honored!

But before I get to this tag business, I must point you all to BooMama’s brilliant line on her blog’s masthead. When I first saw her blog, I laughed out loud – I just love it!

It reads: “BooMama – Read by tens of people every day.”

Ok, now down to business.

Here are the rules of this tag:

  1. Go write weird facts/things/etc. about yourself in my comment box and on your blog, then tag six more people!
  2. Then leave a comment that says “You are tagged” in their comments telling them to read your blog. ENJOY!


Ok some weird things about myself… (BooMama, who was tagged by Lauren, was so inspired by this assignment she went on to list 11, no make that 12, “eccentric” points, which are hilarious – do yourself a favor and go check them out.)

  1. I avoid weekend “vacations.” My family owns a beautiful little condo in a nearby mountain resort and yet we rarely go because I hate all the “work” that goes into a weekend “vacation.” With all the packing, unpacking, packing, unpacking and cleaning, a two night get away is just not worth the work! I hate that exhausted feeling of arriving home at night, unloading the car and seeing the mountain of work sitting in my living room.

    (Now a kid free getaway would require less packing and be much less work, but up until this point in my son’s life, we haven’t yet done a vacation without him – I know we are crazy! Perhaps that is the weirdest thing about me – I have only been away from my son for two nights in his life and they were spread two years apart.)

  2. I sleep with a clean pillowcase on my pillow every night. I can’t bear to sleep on something that has been slept on the night before.
  3. I hate feet. I must wash my hands any time I touch my feet and the only other feet I will ever touch are my son’s or my baby niece’s.
  4. Ok – I am pretty OCD when it comes to hand washing – but who isn’t? Or should I say – shouldn’t we all be? I mean germs are gross – and they are everywhere! After I wash my hands in a public bathroom, I will not touch anything in that foul place. If my hand brushes the door handle (from behind the paper towel I am using to open the door), I must rewash my hands.
  5. I love buying picture frames. I buy a million picture frames, but I never get around to hanging them. I actually have frames with pictures in them that I haven’t put on the walls. (This drives me crazy!)
  6. My computer is as messy as my house. My laptop is clean on the outside of course, but when you boot up you will see tons of unused icons on my desktop, thousands of emails read, but never deleted, and thousands of photos that need to be saved onto CD’s and deleted cause they are sucking up all my space! (Although my house is cluttered and messy, it is usually not dirty – remember I hate germs! I clean our toilets pretty much daily.)

Ok let’s see if I can find some bloggers that haven’t been tagged…that is hard… so if you have already been tagged sorry. (I am just clicking on your blog to check if you have posted on this tag. If not, then I am assuming you haven’t yet been tagged.)

I can relate to the handwashing thing. My training as a nurse surely has something to do with it. I carry small bottles of antibacterial waterless hand cleaner in my purse and car. And you know what? Even though I have an immune deficiency disease, I rarely get sick. OCD or not – handwashing works! I’ll let you know when I decide what weird things about myself I am willing to share in my blog! =)

I totally get your weekend getaway policy. It’s so hard – especially with a toddler. But, a getaway without the toddler is WONDERFUL – I highly recommend it. We don’t do babysitters much around here because we just don’t go anywhere that A. can’t go…but we love to leave the little man with his grandparents for a night or two (once every three or four months) while we go somewhere by ourselves.

Okay, I have to know…how often do you change your sheets? I love that you change your pillowcase every single night.

Thanks so much for “playing” this meme – I have had the best time reading everyone’s posts. OH! I was so excited to see a (1) next to Trackback on my original post. I’m obsessed with Trackback now… :-)

I will play along

1.) I have to have a glass of milk with my ice cream- It just doesn’t taste good any other way.
2.) I can’t stand to have my face wet — I keep a towel handy over the shower door just to wipe my face off every other minute or so
3.) I am right handed but it is almost impossible for me to drink with my right hand – I will always grab the glass, cup, can whatever with my left hand – 9 times out of 10 grabbing with my right hand will cause me to spill it.
4.) I also carry most things, books, bags, kids, etc with my left hand/arm/shoulder or on my left hip.
5.) I am the only female in my family (that is my side of the family) that has never colored her hair in any fashion. With females on both sides of my family ( my mom and both grandmothers) going grey pre-maturally this says a lot. I don’t have any grey yet…….and don’t know what highlights I’d do if I wanted to.

Hi! Thanks for the tag! Here goes my six:

1. I flop like a fish out of water when I get into bed…adjusting all of my elastic :-)…just trying to find the right position to fall asleep in.

2. I have an obsession with cutting my hair. If I see a hair out of place and can’t fix it…whack!!!…that piece of uncooperative hair is gone!

3. I’m always 5 minutes late…no matter where I’m going.

4. I’ve hated ketchup ALL my life…and just recently started eating it at the age of 34. (BayouPaPa gave this one to me.)

5. It bothers me if my shoes aren’t placed left foot/right foot next to each other. I never put them up the wrong way because it creeps me out for some whacky reason.

6. I am very transparent…and maybe at times share a little too much about myself with others. I like being this way though…transparency is freeing!

Thanks for the tag! I’m so honored to be mentioned/tagged here. Loved your list, and mine is up now. I agree with number 5 and could not work ever on your computer because of number 6. I would be so distracted with all the stuff I’d be too busy cleaning it! Which by the way, is one of my favorite OCD’s (organizing/cleaning)!!
