I'm not sure why I even bothered to go blog surfing tonight. I have a basket of socks and undies to fold- I am a good sock folder. I do that job well. (That was for you, Debbie- and I didn't major in anything but kids when I went to college. I had 3 by the time I finished my AA!) I was also planning on going to bed early and, well, never mind. But the computer always whispers that it wants to be turned on when I walk by. Hmm, well, never mind.
Anyway, I got tagged.
So here are the rules:
1. Link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post these rules on your blog.
3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your entry.

  1. I chew my fingernails- and my fingers when I am out of nail. Gross and embarrassing. It just lends to the stubby sausage look I already have going on.
  2. I sucked my thumb in public until I was 10, and in private until I was 13. My family swears up and down that I was 18- but truly, I WAS 13!
  3. My favorite shoes are my pink low-top converse. When I was in 5th grade the high top kind were all the rage. Poor me. Anything that had a "label" on it was out of the question because it was too expensive.
  4. I went to MOPs convention in Orlando last year. The problem is that I hate to sleep away from home. Vacation would be great if I could just sleep at home every night and still go to far away places.
  5. My favorite color is red. It makes me happy. I have 2 west walls in my house that are bright red. I'm trying to figure out which west wall to paint red next.
  6. I had 5 fillings done in Romania this year. I went thinking I only had one to do. It turns out that what I thought was a cavity is just a chip on the edge of the filling material, and I had 5 other big cavities. Just one more reason I am done having kids.

Karen, Kris, Meredith, Jesse, you are tagged. Sorry guys I just don't have that many bloggy friends yet. Feel free to tell your friends about my wonderful blog though!

Forgive me if I pass on this...only because I've done this meme (or some variation of it) many times.

Hope you're having a good week!

Five fillings done in Romania. There are about ten things in that sentence that make me cringe. Was that scary? I DO NOT like the dentist. Nope. Avoid going at all costs.

This was such a cute post!! I'm loving that your favorite shoes are your pink converse. A girl after my own heart.

Can I put your blog in my linky love?

Heather, you ain't heard nothin' yet! I hauled 5 children through 4 international airports over the span of 26 non-stop hours so they could see their paternal grandparents. They spoke no Romanian and thier grandparents spoke no English. I was the lucky translator. Me, with my broken Romanian. Oh, and we stayed 3 weeks without my husband whose pasport has expired and who had to stay home to finance the trip anyway. Now how cringe-y are you?
And, yes, linky love me.

I have no idea how I found your blog, but why do you have to pain the west walls? Is that a decorating rule that I don't know about? :) I ask because we're about to move into our first home and I'm itching to paint but I don't want to break any rules ;)

Gina said...

Because I love the sunrise lighting my red walls on fire in the morning as it pours through my east facing widows. I say it all the time. Red makes me happy. Paint what you love and what makes you happy. It can all be painted over when someone else wants to be happy there.

And I only see the sunrise from October to March. Otherwise it's just too stinkin' early!
