10 things about me ...

1. I bought a Smash book this week ...I'm excited about putting things in it.
Smash Book

2. I want a pet jelly fish.

3. I was very spontaneous as a child and now I am very much a "Type A" person.

4. In 1994 I asked for and got Stone Temple Pilots Purple on cassette for Christmas.

5. A few weeks ago Paul snuck a pack of Papermate Flair felt tip markers in 16 different colors in our stuff at Target then surprised me when we got home. Yay colors!

6. I feel guilty that I let Mandie watch so much T.V.

7. I have a new obsession with repurposing t- shirts.

8. I am super worried about my Dad's trip to Thailand. With him not being in very good health I worry that he won't make it back home. He needs this trip though.

9. I have been practicing my math skills on Khan Academy that site is amazing.

10. I am very competitive.

I did shave my dog last week.

Stolen Idea

Every Friday a person I know posts facts about herself...I want to get better at posting more often, and like the idea of being introspective so I'm stealing her idea. Thank you Catrina.

1. I like to write but I am not the best at spelling, and I don't always use proper punctuation.

2. My tortoise Shellie died this week. I had her for just under a decade. I am not sure what happened, but I feel guilty that I have lost so many pets makes me question my role in their deaths. (I didn't strangle them or not feed them or anything, I just wonder if I could have done more to prevent what happened.) I feel guilty enough that I didn't even post about her death on FB.

3. I ate almost an entire box of Honey Nut Cheerios this week and I don't feel bad because it's better than the crap I probably would have eaten instead.

4. I like the idea of naps, but I am bad at them.

5. My sister and I are socially awkward and have no friends so we are best friends with each other.
(I don't think I'd want it any other way.)

6. I decided I want to shave my dog so I want to do it right now! I tend to get certain ideas in my head and I become very focused on that one thing.

7. I hate the smell of milk.

8. I don't like getting my hands gross with food, but since I've had a baby I've gotten over that pretty quick. (The same goes for getting food on my clothes ..I used to change as soon as I could if I spilled something on myself, and now I've gone entire days with food smeared across my shirt.)

9. I am a sucker for infomercials ...luckily I have the self control and lack of money to keep me from buying anything.

10. My desk is a disaster area that I really need to organize. (After I shave the dog.)
