#51 - Me

My friend Kim tagged me on her blog, Green-eyed Frog

I'm supposed to list 6 unspectacular quirks about myself. Hmmm.

1 - I clean everything in reverse order. For instance, I like to deep-clean the counter top /before/ clearing everything off of it. Yes, it's quite a trick. :D I just hate trying to find places to put everything. My style of cleaning would be best described as "moving the mess."

2 - I'm not dyslexic when it comes to reading, but I get left/right, and east/west mixed up most of the time. So if I'm ever in the car with you and I'm supposed to turn right, just tell me to turn left and we'll be good. (Thanks for pointing me in the right direction so many times last night, Stacy and Elana!)

3 - I almost always put my make-up on in the car. (When I do wear make-up, which is usually only to church and on dates.) I just get in such a rush that I can't fit it in before leaving. When I'm the one driving, I wait for stoplights and such. Of course, when I'm not driving, it's still good to wait for stoplights. Have /you/ tried putting lipstick on at 30 mph? And forget about mascara! :)

4 - I go to an OD instead of an MD. (He's awesome and I would totally recommend him to everyone except he's always booked out for 3 months at a time, so I really don't want to share him with you.) I also gave birth to 3 out of 4 of my kids at home with a highly trained, awesome midwife, Suzanne. I also use a lot of alternative kinds of health care methods. It's not that I don't believe in modern medicine at all. I use it when I feel like it's called for. I just don't believe doctors know quite everything.

5 - I hate wearing shoes. I'm constantly kicking them off. And then, of course, I have to search around to find them the next time I need to wear shoes.

6 - I was trying not to use any book-related quirks, but my brain is tired, so I'm giving in. My last one is that there are piles of books all over my house. That's always true anyway, but right now, it's especially bad. I'm in the process of moving all of my bookshelves out of the bedroom and down to my new office in the basement. I'm trying to organize my books as I go, so there are literally piles of books all over the floor downstairs. I can't wait to be done with this project!

  1. Hey Jennifer! I love that you kick off your shoes whenever you can. Me TOO! Shoes are evil little things, and the books . . . yeah . . . me too!

  2. Hey, Jennifer, you won the drawing for a copy of my book! And yes, I can put on lipstick while driving. In fact I could probably do all of my makeup with no mirror. Yeah. I know, I'm super talented :)

  3. Jennifer,

    Ah man! I'm tagged. Okay, I'll play. It might take me a few days, though. Thanks for thinking of me, and reading my blog.


    PS I have the same issues with shoes and books. I guess we have that in common!

  4. Yeah, I hate wearing shoes, too. And, I have way too many books.

    My MO for trying to find places for things is to find the trashcan--my kids don't like this method much, though :).

  5. Just so you know, I didn't ignore your tag. I may do this one or the one above, I haven't decided...

    Thanks for tagging me - I think they're kinda fun!


Thanks for leaving a comment! Come back soon! :o)
