What makes me . . . ME!

I've been thinking about my blog and doing a different type of post, so I've decided to start with ME! At this point, I've been blogging for almost a year, so it's about time I revealed myself (don't worry--I'm not revealing myself)! If you are one of the people who've been reading this blog, then you know me pretty well, but I'm just going to let you in on a few of my little quirks (luckily, Mike thinks most of these are cute).
1. Before I take a shower, I HAVE to brush my teeth. I can't shower, then brush. I HAVE to brush then shower. Even if I'm in a hurry and it would make more time-sense to wait--can't do it.
2. I watch Days of Our Lives. I've watched it since I was 8--the summer after 3rd grade when Bo and Hope got married. That means I've watched it for 28 years (off and on, but mostly on). I record it on the DVR and can fast forward through most episodes in 15 minutes and know what's happening, but I still watch.
3. I snore.
4. I'm obsessed with my toes. I get a pedicure about once a month, but that's not what I mean. If my toenails are too long or if I think I might get an ingrown toenail, I have to get to work.
5. I count stairs. There are 17 stairs in our house, 4 then turn, 12, then turn, then 1 and you're upstairs. I count them everywhere. Silently--but I'm counting.
6. I get excited about things. My thing I love right now is my new Sonicare toothbrush. My dentist recommended it at my last cleaning and I love it. Love it love it. My teeth are smooth and clean like I just had a cleaning. I'm actually excited to get my teeth cleaned again because I'm pretty sure I'm going to sit down, the hygenist will look in my mouth and say "Perfect. I can't improve!"
7. This kind of goes along with number 4, but I put lotion on my feet every night before bed and green fuzzy socks on top. BUT--I can't stand sleeping with socks, so I wake up every night around 1 am and throw them on the floor.
8. I have 3 hairs on my chin that I pluck regularly.
9. I remember phone numbers. I remember phone numbers from my childhood, from commercials, etc. I know--amazing.
10. I pull one leg of my pants up when I'm sitting in the car or on the couch. One leg, up past my knee. No idea.

There you have it--my secret quirkinesses. That's me!

3 people had nice things to say:

Welcome to the FREAK BLOG CLUB. I really believe once you've blogged your funkiness that it takes you to a whole new level of blogging! LOL!!
