I am so late on this tag. (Sorry, Kambria!) I was trying to do the Week in the Life thing last week and dropped off by Saturday. Thanks everyone for the kind words and comments. I'm still not feeling well, but am praying that the chiropractor visit yesterday will help. Right now, it is just making me sore. Anyway, on to the seven random things about myself...
1.} I don't do background music. Never have. For some reason, it sends me into deep dark depression. I have no idea why. When I was younger, I famously once played my radio, the record player, and a cassette tape all at once so that I would have background noise without being able to focus on a specific song. Now, around the house and in the car we often have children's CDs playing, but I would choose silence above the radio or a CD for myself. When I need company (like when the kids are gone), I much prefer a funny movie playing in the background.
2.} I have a constant, never-ending internal conversation running in my head which I am unable to turn off. This is terrific when I'm planning something or imagining something fun, and not so terrific when I'm stressing over something.
3.} I hate the feeling of wooden spoons. They give me the shivers. Do you know those little individual servings of icecream that come with the wooden spoons? Those are the worst! And I never taste-test cooking from a wooden spoon!!
4.} I think Wuthering Heights is one of the most awful books I've ever read.
5.} I get embarassed very, very easily. I like to be a wall-flower.
6.} I never went to a high school dance or prom.
7.} I had a boyfriend in high school (for a few months, anyway) that was probably the loudest, most obnoxious, least inhibited, craziest guy in the school. I'm pretty sure the only person he had *ever* been intimidated by was my dad.
I am tagging Mrs. Q at Five in the Potter's Hand, Aja at The Shoup Story, Sandy Toes at Shell in Your Pocket, Beth at Pages of Our Life, Lora at My Blessed Life, Kiley at Always Come Home, and Em at Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit... (Feel free to skip the tag if you aren't interested!)
