Interesting Things About Me?

I was tagged by KindredHeart and Living4HIM and wanted to play along but it took awhile to come up with 7 interesting things about me. Here is how it works: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write their own blog with their 7 things as well as these rules. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. Remember to leave a comment for them letting them know they have been tagged and to read your blog.

Here goes...

1.  When I am intently listening to someone speaking my fingers often start typing out the words I hear. This habit started when I took a speed typing class in college and had to type as the person spoke.  It drives my husband crazy and I don’t usually notice I am doing it until he puts his hand on mine to stop me or asks what I am typing. Occasionally I do the same thing but with music and my fingers move as if playing the piano.  (Odd thing is that my sister "types" also).

2. My neck turns red instantly if I touch it or if clothing irritates it. So if it ever looks as if I have a large red birthmark on my neck most likely I was probably just holding one of the children and they brushed against it or some such thing. My brother-in-law gets a kick out of this so will often poke my neck for the fun of seeing it turn red.

3.  I cannot stick my tongue out except maybe a hair past my bottom lip. I guess I am tongue-tied and the doctor had told my Mom when I was a child that they could clip it underneath if it hindered my speech but it didn’t so they left it alone. All it has hindered is that I cannot stick my tongue out at anyone but it is a good conversation piece. The children think it is funny.

4.  I enjoy art and cooking often feels like an art project to me where I need to have every piece in its perfect spot. For example I cannot just throw the pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives on a pizza, I really like to have it evenly spaced with just the right amount of topping in each bite. Thankfully I have children to help me loosen up in this area and I “try” to let them arrange food as they see fit.

5.  I am constantly changing my mind and therefore have a hard time deciding on things such as paint colors because I know that in no time at all I will see something that I like better.  If I find the "perfect" thing then  I usually like it for all-time. But sometimes the "perfect" thing only exists in my mind.

6.  I have a problem with clothes that are itchy from tags to seams or certain fabrics. I always feel the seams in the sleeves before I buy a shirt to make sure they are not sticking up too far. I get goose bumps when my husband insists on drying his jeans outside as they get so stiff and the thought of them on my legs makes me cringe. There are a few pictures when I was a child where I am either crying from a lacy dress my Mom had me wear or from a robe with itchy seams so that I stood with my arms straight out with a look of “when can I take it off?” on my face.

7.  I have an associate’s degree in the computer field and worked at a computer helpdesk for a number of years. This seems so far removed from who I am now, especially since I am not technically- minded but it was something to do while I waited to get married and have a family. If I had it to do again I would choose a job working with flowers/gardening or interior design.'re it!

Have i ever mentioned how beautiful your blog is?

I think it is gorgeous. Did you design it?

Also, i love your pics and that i can see them. My filter blocks photobucket and flickr, but i can see yours, yay!

I will be mulling over the tag. This is a crazy busy week, so it may be awhile.

Thanks for stopping by.

Here's something you may not know. I type with my fingers too! Actually, I make patterns with my fingers, not type words. And, my Aunt Mary used to do that too. I remember her fingers going on her lap or on the arm of a chair when she was sitting.

Oh, I'm going to be watching your hands next time we talk! :o) That's OK, my hubby was in drama in high school, and sometimes when I talk he mouthes what I'm saying as I say it. I think that's more distracting than doing something with your hands!

I'm going to be watching my new niece this summer, so I am bummed I won't be seeing you at the farm! I was looking forward to summer chats over the cucumbers! We'll have to get together anyway....

I liked this post, these were interesting things! Now I'll be thinking about 7 interesting things about myself. Hm!

I finally posted my list. I got tagged by you for 7 interesting things, and by another blogger for 8 random things. I went with 8 because random was less pressure than interesting! LOL

Have a great weekend!
