The One With My 25 Facts...

I've been tagged by Lani to write 25 facts about myself. I am recovering from having some teeth pulled, so if anything doesn't make sense I blame it on the meds that I am taking. Here goes...

RULE: Once you've been tagged you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facs, habits or goals about you. At the end, choose some friends tag! You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you it's because I want to know more about you.

1. I love to read blogs. I am somewhat obsessive about checking blogs. I am also often disappointed when I check in and no one has written anything. (So you would think that would make me better at updating mine...but nope.)
2. I really like to watch sports. But unfortunately I am lacking when it comes to athletic ability.
3. I wish I was a good housekeeper. I want my house to be clean, but toys frequently end up taking over.
4. When I was in elementary school, I wished my birthday wasn't in the summer. I always wanted to have a birthday party at school. Now I'm glad that the sun is always shining on my birthday.
5. When I found out Jacob was a boy, it scared me. What did I know about boys? I was pretty excited to find out Ally was a girl. But then when we found out with Logan, I was hoping for a boy.
6. I'm very brave about getting haircuts. I figure it will always grow back. This is good because my mom went to beauty school when I was in high school and I was frequently her model.
7. I am lucky. I sign up for random contests and so that means sometimes I win. A couple of years ago, I won a barbeque from Channel 9 news. Last month I won a tank of gas from a local car lot. And now I am on the waiting list for a blog makeover that I have won from Designer Blogs.
8. I have dark hair and brown eyes. Somehow all 3 of my children have blonde hair and blue eyes.
9. I love to read. I have always thought I liked pretty much any genre except fantasy. Then I fell in love with Harry Potter; then I became obsessed with Twilight; so now I am considering reading more fantasy.
10. I cannot put eyedrops into my own eyes. If I see something coming at my eyes, I close them. Someone must pin me down and hold my eye open to get a drop into it.
11. There are certain grammar and spelling mistakes that drive me crazy. I am not perfect but I cringe when I hear double negatives or when someone types loose instead of lose. I also often feel the need to give lessons in their vs. there vs they're.
12. Forks scraping on teeths and plates are also cringe-worthy for me. People don't know they do it but they let their fork scrape on their teeth when they eat. And I would prefer that a person lick their plate than do the scrape, scrape, scrape bit.
13. I am sure I have seen every Friends episode numerous times, but I still laugh when I watch the show. I often relate things in real life back to the show..."This reminds me of the episode of Friends where..."
14. I could never be a stay at home mom. I love my kids and sometimes I wish I had a more flexible schedule to spend time with them, but if I didn't get out of the house to go to work, I would go crazy.
15. I love diet pop. I have tried to give it up; I always hear how bad it is. I can't help it, I love it!
16. My tv is always on, even if no one is watching it. When Ally was little we were visiting someone's home and their tv was off. Ally pointed at the tv and said Uh-oh.
17. I hate the snow. It looks pretty, but it is way too cold. The Willamette Valley is great for me. I don't mind the rain, as long as it stays warm.
18. I thought math was easy, until I took Calculus.
19. Both the middle school and high school I attended have been torn down and replaced.
20. My family will never let me forget that I once said "I'm bored," while I was at Disney Land with my grandmother.
21. I have only been to beaches where it is cold. The Oregon Coast always makes me feel cold. I want to go to a beach where it is HOT.
22. I regularly check CraigsList but I have never purchased anything from anyone on the site.
23. I worry a lot. I have a tendency to come up with the worst possible scenario. I am working on controlling this. I know the bad things happen when you least expect it. But for some reason that doesn't stop me.
24. I need my sleep at night but I always wake up early. I was lucky my babies were good sleepers because I do not function well in the middle of the night.
25. I am working on writing on my blog more often. I love to write and this is such a great chance for me!

I tag anyone who reads this and hasn't ever done it. It was hard for me to come up with these 25 things, but it was also fun.

Hey, I got my puppy off Craigslist, love diet coke, and my tv is normally..."ah-oh!" :)

Happy Ground Hog day!

I'm with you on the grammar thing (Especially the: their vs. there vs they're.)

It's wonderful to have you as a co-worker!
