10 MORE Random Things About Me

Okay, so I've been tagged by Lori, Crayola Lady, and Ginny. And I realize that I've already told you 10 random things about me, but, just in case you were bored today, or thought that you were the only goober in the world, here's my list. Join me and we'll be goobers together.

1.) I don't like working. In fact I only took classes in college that would allow me to do what I wanted to do for a job that really boiled down to playing with little kids all day. I was a pre-school teacher. Couldn't wait to get married and have kids, Sweetie and I always said I would be a stay at home mom. Couldn't wait to pop out those kids so I could stop working. Yeah, reality set in FAST!

2.) My dream car is a minivan. I mean, you can load up on those kids and all their gear. Everyone of them can have two drinks that are safely kept in cup holders. I secretly want flames painted on the sides with a license plate that says 'hot mama'.

3.) I still think of myself as 19 years old. I always thought that when you turn thirty you had to have it all together and know everything. I have now pushed that age to 40. In fact this last November I turned 36 and didn't handle it very well. I only have 4 more years to get my act together. It's not looking too good.

4.) Instead of a college fund, Sweetie and I have set up a Counseling Fund, because we KNOW we're messing up our kids! We're taking donations.

5.) I'm not too good at friendships, I pretty much walk around thinking people don't like me. (okay, so maybe I need to tap into the counseling fund)

6.) Sweetie and I actually got bored on our honeymoon, wanted to call our friends to come join us and ended up going home early.

7.) Secretly wish I could sing REALLY GREAT on stage and give everyone goose bumps.

8.) I'm not a good driver. Seriously, I'm thinking that people should form an intervention and take my license away. I once got into an accident in the Jack-in-th-Box drive thru, on my lunch break during traffic school, for a speeding ticket I got. Most friends of mine, want to take my car when we go somewhere together, but they want the keys so they can drive. Sara will say that I nearly killed her, don't believe her, we weren't that close to the tree.

9.) I'm crazy about organizing. Just when I think I've got one room/closet organized I decide I can do it better and re-do it. A few years ago I found Sweetie's label maker for work.....I'm in love. Did you know labels stick to almost any surface? Except maybe the dog. I've got 'toilet paper' labeled on a shelf in the utility room and rolls of toilet paper stacked on the shelf. Jay was amazed, he didn't know where the t.p. was until I put a label under it. I'm just here to help.

10.) I really love the color pink. And flowers. If it were up to me our house would be one giant pink flowery puff. But living with three guys, I kinda got out numbered. It's really the only reason I want a daughter, so that I can have some pink flowery stuff in the house. She'd have bows. Big bows. Lots of dresses. Lots of flowers. Lots of pink.

Now, if you're reading this, consider yourself tagged, list 10 random things about yourself.
