Ok - this was HARD! You think you can come up with 7 random things, but when you think about it - random ain't easy. Either that or I'm just a predictable person. So, here's my attempt to tell you something you don't or wouldn't know about me.
The rules are as follows:
#1 Link to the person who tagged you.... Julie at Truly Delightful?!?!
#2 Post the rules on your blog.
#3 Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
#4 Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
# 5 Leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged.
So . . . here we go.
1 - My left leg is 3 1/2 inches shorter than my right. I know - wierd. I have scoliosis and was supposed to have back surgery to correct it but I was not diagnosed until I was 14yrs. By then it was very risky and it scared me. If I had been 3 degrees worse, they would have 'required' it but the drs watched it until I was 21yrs and it never worsened. So . . I am just careful about my choice in bathing suits, dresses, etc.
2 - I hate listening to the radio in the car. This is just random, in that people are amazed that I don't. I NEVER have it on if I have a choice. Maybe because I would much rather hear silence than music or talking. I hear that all day, everyday. I just want nothing to do but sit.
3 - I'd be very happy as a single woman. Don't judge too quickly! I UTTERLY love my family but I would be completely content with being alone. I would love to have a place of my own; where no one touches things I put down, I can put some ice cream in the freezer and it will be there when I go back, no one would mess up my cleanliness, I can have peace and quiet when I want and watch what I want and when I want to. I could spend my money the way I want to and have extra in the bank that won't have be spent on socks (because the boys played outside again without shoes) or posterboard (for yet another school project), etc. Maybe it's because I grew up in a large family and my 'career' is so "in your face" that I just enjoy my solitude.
4 - It really bothers me when I find out someone doesn't like me. I know we all have insecurities but if I find out - I want to fix it. I want everyone to be my friend and I want to be everyone's friend. Doesn't mean we have to be best buds but I never want to walk by someone and feel like they can't say hi or feel like they are talking behind my back sorely. I try and live so that many may say that I am a good and nice person. Sometimes I fail but I'm trying.
5 - I love my iced drinks. Everyone does but I will NEVER drink ANYTHING unless it's ON ICE. I don't care if it's even just a cold can of soda - MUST HAVE ICE! And I ALWAYS have a bag of Sonic ice in the freezer.
6 - I'm a list freak! I am like my mother in the respects of lists. I write lists for everything -
*groceries - I even have a pretyped one on my computer that I just circle what I need
*meal ideas - I have 35 meals listed with the ingredients needed - kids circle the meal they want and I know what I need to make it
*things to do
*my budget - I'm super anal about this one - have it planned out to the day for the next 3 months
*schedules - I have a Palm pilot "my brain" and I live by it. Even if something 'pops' up, I'll put it in after the fact. I always know where I was, am going or will be.
My dad walked in on my mom once with a bunch of papers on the table and asked what she was doing. She replied "making a list of my lists". That's me. List freak!
7 - I'm an avid multi-tasker! I HATE that people don't or can't do more than one thing at a time!! I will walk down the hall to do something and be thinking of all the things that I can do on the way back. Maybe it was the way I was trained in theatre. You can't just do one thing at a time in theatre. There are always lots of things to do. Geoff laughs at me because I can do 10 things at once and still hear his conversation down the hall on the phone. :) Maybe I'm nosy too. HA!
Ug. All done. Whew! Feel better now. :)
