Remember the days when we wrote on our personal blogs like every day? Me either. Ha ha. Well I took a jog down memory lane this evening and came across this goody: "Tag, you're it." I was laughing because most of this is still true! (PS this is when I was an elementary teacher...just to clarify #4).
#1 I am VERY conscious of my personal dental hygeine. I actually love
to brush and floss my teeth. By the end of the day, I often comment to
Richie, "Oh I have GOT to go brush my teeth, they are so fuzzy!" He
thinks that's that strangest thing. Haven't you ever felt like you have
fuzz growing on your teeth?
#2 I remember faces VERY WELL. I
often see people I "know" by their faces, and I usually go right up to
them and say, "I know you!" And I really know that I do know them
somehow. I often can't remember how. But the response I get 99 percent
of the time is, "Oh! Hmm, I don't think I know you!" Richie's laughs
all the time and comments, "You think you know everyone!"
absolutely HATE drains. I refuse to clean one out, get too close to
one, or reach my hand down one to retrieve something I dropped. I would
rather clean 25 toilets. Drains are DISGUSTING.
#4 I have a
super sensitive sense of smell and sound. EVERYTHING smells! (Good or
bad.) I smell stinky kids every day--especially in the morning when
they haven't brushed their teeth. I smell their fabulous body odor in
the afternoon after recess, and I just smell STINK when I re-enter my
classroom at the end of the day. I smell other teacher's coffee breath
too(that's one of the worst). I smell funky smells outside--dog poop
and such. And I always think I smell smoke in my house from the
residents above us.
As far as sound goes, I am always asking Richie to talk a little more
quietly, turn the tv down, turn the radio down, etc. The strange thing
is, I am always saying "WHAT?" becuase I can't hear, or miss parts of
conversations somehow. Go figure.
I secretly love 70's music. I don't know why I get embarrassed about
that, but it's probably one of my favorite types. (I really love music
PERIOD) To name just a few, I like James Taylor, John Denver, Jim Croce,
Bread, Chicago, Stevie Wonder, Carpenters, Ann Murray, Jonathan
Edwards, Harry Nilsson, Billy Joel, The Eagles, BJ Thomas, Carole King,
America, Abba, Beach Boys, Beatles, Jimmy Buffett, Phil Collins, Neil
Diamond, Fleetwood Mac, and Simon and Garfunkle. I can't think of any
more. My parents are proud of me. =)
#6 I want a scooter. BAD.
And if I were to redo this today?
"Six Things You Wish You Didn't Just Ready about Me."
#1 "I know if I can make you smile or laugh in the morning, it must have been pretty funny!" This is what Richie tells me often. I am a night owl. I stay up too late EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. When my alarm clock wakes me up in the morning (my children), I am a very unhappy mama. I am NOT a morning person.
#2 I am authentically a happy person and I love people!
#3 Currently my favorite upbeat song on the radio is "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore.
#4 My husband is a rapper. (And he's good.) No joke. Someday I'll have to put him on YouTube!
#5 I still hate drains. And I am adding laundry to my list of things that I loathe. (Have 3+ kids and you'll totally get it.)
#6 I LOVE light pink lip gloss (MAC) and hot pink toes.
