There is this silly meme going around Facebook and if you get tagged, you have to share things about yourself. I got tagged today and had to list out 9 things about myself. And yes, I know it’s lame to share the same things here, but this poor blog is in desperate need of a jump start as I adjust to my new schedule, so humor me.
1) If I could pick my dream job it would be writing an advice column. I’m really good at telling people how to live their lives.
2) I didn’t start eating Italian food until I was a sophomore in college because I didn’t want to be rude and refuse a friend’s mom’s lasagna. My taste buds have thanked me ever since- my waist line, not so much.
3) We were visiting this friend’s house because he and I and some friends rang in 1998 in Times Square. That was one of the most fun / craziest things I have ever done – and something I’ll never do again because I could never hold my bladder that long again if my life depended on it.
4) I am one of the least athletic people you’ll ever meet, but I work out 5-6 times a week.
5) My favorite kind of books are the kind where I ignore my children/husband/chores/work because I can’t put the book down. I’m always on the look out for a new book that fits that description- genre doesn’t matter.
6) I’ve gone camping at least once a year for at least 31 out of my 35 years. We took Scorch camping for a week when he was 8 weeks old- the only summer he hasn’t been camping was the summer the Bean was born (I was too chicken to take a 10 day old camping).
7) While I like dogs (including my own), I’m a cat person through and through.
8) When I was pregnant with the Bean I had months of nightly dreams about Eminem. We were BFFs and I was the only one who could convince him to go back on tour (nope, I don’t get it either).
9) There is always music on at my house- which means I’m always singing and dancing. I’m pretty shameless so the fact that I can’t do either doesn’t stop me.
Here’s a few bonus items:
10) I love road trips. Absolutely *love* them and cannot wait until the kids are old enough to take a cross country trip with them.
11) I’m not a crier over most things in real life, but I cry over things in books and TV all the time. Including the Folder’s commercial where the solider comes back home and surprises his family in the morning with a pot of coffee. Not sure what all that says about me.
12) I’m not a numbers/ data person, but nothing makes me feel more accomplished than having things like my budget / grocery list/ Christmas presents guide typed out in a color coded spreadsheet. Makes the Hubs crazy- he hates my spreadsheets.
