Thing 1

Kelli @ Holding the Mirror Up to My Soul tagged me for a meme in which you list seven things about yourself. I tried to post this once right after she tagged me, but it never posted. I guess I didn’t feel like tackling it then, so I’ll do it now.

Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1. My birthday is exactly 1 week away. I get excited about my birthday every year, but for the last few years, it’s been very boring. 2 years ago my sister got married the day after my wedding. Her wedding was very rushed - being planned in less than a month. So, almost everyone forgot my birthday that year. I had been very moody and found out a week later I was pregnant. That works for a birthday surprise! Then last year my son was an infant, so it was difficult to do anything for my birthday. Plus my other sister had a wedding coming up in a week. She & I went shopping and to lunch together as a sort of “bachelorette party” for her. This year will probably be nothing special either, but I’m OK with that. The older I get the more I realize that birthdays don’t have to be something special. It’s just a milestone to see each birthday.

2. OK, here’s a funny habit. I check for lint between my toes before I get into bed each night, especially when I’ve worn socks all day. (It drives Matt nuts, but I have having stuff between my toes like that.)

3. If Matt & I ever had twin girls we think Layla and Anya would be nice names for them. (I am not wishing for twins though.)

4. If I have a drink with ice in it, I swish it before each drink. Matt thinks this is strange, but I do it so I won’t get a huge watery taste from it.

5. I have never lived alone in my entire life. Sometimes I wish I would have for at least a short while before I got married.

6. When I was young I had a cat (a stray neighborhood cat) that I named Squeaker, because she could never meow. Even as she grew up all you ever heard from her was a squeak. Then she had a kitten (only one & we didn’t even know she was pregnant) and I named the kitten Sweet Pea (for no particular reason, just thought I’d add that).

7. I tried the Atkins Diet once when it was really popular. I hated every day of it. I did lose weight, but I practically stopped eating because I was sick of the things I could have. I decided that was a bad way to diet, so I stopped.

I will tag the following people if you’d like to give it a try and if you haven‘t done this already. Please post in the comments if you are participating, so we can go see your meme. Also, I have 2 more memes I will be working on soon. If you tagged me for something, and I haven’t done it yet please let me know. Thanks.

Yay! I'll be happy to participate. I'll probably do it tomorrow, since I already posted this morning.

Ditto #5. I always wonder what I missed out on.
