About me!

You know, I really like when bloggers do posts that describe them more personally.  And, I've kinda wanted to do a blog post like that of my own, but I think "what the heck is so interesting about me???".  

Well I guess we all don't have to be all that interesting necessarily, but I think it would be nice to let you in on some goofy things about me.  It's been a year and a half since I started this blog, and I realized I've never really disclosed too much of my personal self.

Here goes . . . 

I'm tall.  5'10" . . . and a smidge.  Hubby's the exact same height.  And although I'm tall enough already, I love wearing heels ~ 3 sometimes 4 inch heels!  Hubby doesn't mind.  I think he likes being with an Amazon women when we're out.  But, even with my highest heels on, I'm still not taller then either of my two oldest boys.  And the youngest is sprouting up fast.  It's like land of the giants in our house.

I'm really, really bad at math.  And I have a horrific memory.

I can whistle through my eye.  Wait. Let me explain.  When I hold my nose, and my mouth is closed, and I blow out, a whistling sound comes from the corner of my eye.  I know, gross, right?!  I've actually met other people who possess this extraordinary talent, so I'm not looking to submit myself to the Guiness Book of Records any time soon.

I'm a middle child with bookend brothers.  Nah . . . I wasn't spoiled . . . really, I wasn't!  

I was way more of a tomboy then a girly-girl when I was younger. 

I've been with my Hubby forever.  Well, seems like forever.  We met the week after I turned 15 and have been together ever since {that would be 32 wonderful years!}.  It was a bit scandolous at first, because he was 19.  He actually thought I was older.  But he fell for my charming personality and couldn't let me go! ;o)

I am ka-razeeee for chocolate.  I mean really bad.  Anything chocolate.  Chocolate candy, chocolate cake, chocolate covered anything . . . if it's got any bit of chocolate goodness on it, I'm eatin' it!

I love to sweat; that is after a good workout.  It's so cleansing, and it reminds me just how good of workout I've had.

I'm deathly afraid of spiders.  

I don't like my bones touched.  Okay, another one I need to explain.  I don't like the feeling of having anywhere on my body where there's not much "meat" touched.  Areas like elbows, shins, collars, hips.  I feel like I'm going to instantly bruise.  Don't ask.  I have absolutely no idea how that came about!

I've never lived any farther than 20 miles from where I grew up.  And, my older brother is my neighbor.

I crack my knuckles.

Oh, and I'm an April Fool's Baby.  Yes.  Today is my birthday.  And, yes, anything you could ask about a kid growing up having to endure a birthday on April Fool's day, I've pretty much experienced.  But, it's all good.  I think my personality might match that of an April Fool's Baby's would ;o)

LOL! I have to laugh at Marsha's comment and your "TMI" comment, Carla! I love it and I'm so glad you did share. It's just one more way we can bond with our bloggy friends.

My daughter is like you with spiders. She actually had a car accident a few years ago and hit a tree because a spider came down from the ceiling of her car right in front of her face. She hates them with a passion.
