Random Facts

I love to read blogs, probably because I love taking a glimpse into the lives of others. I often refer to my favorite bloggers as "friends" when I talk about them so that people don't think I'm crazy. I love to hear the stories about spouses and children and church. A couple of weeks ago, Whitney had a little question and answer post that I truly enjoyed. Here's my version with a few random facts about us.

-I get up around 5:00 every morning.
-I watch S.ex In The City if I'm awake at 3:30am.
-We have never had cable or satellite. We watch "free tv" and that's fine with us.
-The Muffin eats chocolate chip pancakes and drinks chocolate milk for breakfast 5 out of 7 mornings.
-I love sandwiches.
-My dream job would be a kindergarten teacher or a coffee barista.
-I was probably a better preschool teacher than I am mother.
-The first two years of our marriage, Big Daddy and I were not very happy, but we loved each other and hung in there anyway.
-For the first time in his life, Big Daddy loves going to church!
-We had four cars until October. Now, we're down to three, but I think there is a convertible in our future.
-Having to get a minivan is one of my biggest fears.
-Big Daddy and I have been together for nearly 13 years.
-We met when I dated one of his college friends. (We never talk about that)
-I like to clean, but I really love having a clean house and car.
-I worry obsessively about Big Daddy when he travels. I once packed up me and Muff while we were at my mom and dad's at 11:30pm so that we could make the 1 hour drive home to get his hotel information. He was supposed to call and didn't. He called about 10 minutes into our drive home and had forgotten about the time zone difference.
-I love my gun.
-The Muffin loves to talk about breastfeeding.
-Big Daddy would be a professional fighter or a Navy Seal if he could.
-The people that I consider my truest bestest friends are all from middle/high school. We hardly ever see each other, but keep in touch by email. I know I could call on them for anything.
-I never touch hotel beds with my bare skin.
-Getting into the hospital bed when I went for my scheduled induction with Maggie took more courage than I could have ever imagined.
-I once had an appointment to have a fibroid removed on Halloween. My gynecologist was wearing his Navy uniform and the assisting nurse was dressed as a hunter.
-I have trouble making even the smallest decisions.
-I like to save money and often carry around merchandise only to put it back and leave the store without purchasing anything.
-I'm obsessive about recycling.
-I love to brush, floss and go the dentist for regular cleanings.
-My favorite things about being a real estate broker were paperwork and going to look at houses with my fellow-agent, Gladys. We used any excuse to go out together just to look at decorating and stuff.
-Our best family time is in the morning when Muff gets in our bed and falls back to sleep.
-The Muffin and I like routines and we both have special ways of doing things. She gets mad at Big Daddy because "he just can't do it right".
-We have never owned a set of scales. I weigh at my mom and dad's house and Big Daddy weighs at the gym.
-Big Daddy is not a very good gift-giver.
-My most expensive piece of jewelry is the three-stone diamond anniversary band that I got for our fourth anniversary...after he told me that he'd planned on getting me a gift card to L.owe's Home Improvement to put towards a storage building. I cried when he told me and then I picked out the ring after he encouraged me to get anything I wanted at he jewelry store.
-My broker-in-charge was afraid to get me a L.owe's gift card for my following birthday (even though it was the office standard) because he thought I might cry.
-I've been known to cry over the silliest things. Like the Christmas Eve that I had contracted hand, foot and mouth disease from a preschool kid and my aunt was on a diet. I cried because we couldn't have hot dogs like everyone else.
-Each time our phone rings I worry that it may be my mother-in-law.
-I love moving around the furniture.

Of course, there's more, but we'll just leave something to the imagination.

Those are great! I don't know that I could come up with that much random stuff about me. Well, maybe if I tried really hard.

Christina said...

That was very interesting. I don't know that I could come up with that many random facts about myself!

Kweku and Laura said...

Very, Very interesting! I love it! I think those random facts are excellent!

As for being a barista, I love it, and when my belly gets too big and I have to quit will be a sad day for me...

Maybe we should open a coffee shop together. Ha. Would Gooner have to be named after a pastry? I just don't see Gooner as a Chocolate Cream Cheese Filled Muffin. ;)

I just did one of these things and forgot one. Reading yours makes me want to share it with you...I grew up eating tuna sandwiches with honey on them. And I'm a picky eater! :)
