No Tag Backs!

My mom tagged me. And since I always do what my mom tells me to do with no complaint or contrary opinion, I will be answering this tag even though I can't think of anything remarkable interesting that I haven't shared on this blog yet. This stuff stresses me out for some reason - oh wait, that could be a random thing about myself!

*Link to the person who tagged you
*Post the rules on your blog
*Write six random things about yourself
*Tag six-ish people at the end of your post
*Let each person know he/she has been tagged
*Let the tagger know when your entry is up

#1. I do not know the lyrics to very many songs. I stink at name-that-tune type games and I am frequently busted by my hubby for totally making up words. However, this issue does NOT keep me from totally singing out loud. I love to sing and I'm pretty decent with the tunes, so I just can't help myself. I have to read and re-read lyrics and sing it over and over again before I feel confident that I kinda know the song and even then I usually screw it up.

#2. I love the water. I love to swim and float in my pool. My dream vacations have to do with beaches and oceans. I find waterfalls, lakes and rivers enjoyable. I celebrate when we finally get rain. I take baths and showers regularly. I drink water, too. And I cook chicken in water. I'm a fan of water.

#3. I have gotten to the point in my life that I enjoy and emptier fridge. I find when our fridge is packed I believe we are not using our condiments efficiently and that has started to bug me. I like to think I subscribe to the depression-era-mindset of using every last bit, especially when it comes to food. Tyler's dad has always remarked how certain leftover will "make a great sandwich tomorrow" and I totally believe that. Most of my lunches at home consist of leftovers and I feel accomplished when I clear out some tupperware.

#4. I prefer even numbers. I get a little weirded out at the produce department if I end up with an odd number. I buy four apples instead of five. I won't stop my sit-ups at 9 crunches, I push it to 10. I always wear two shoes. I enjoy all 20 of my digits. The only thing I'm content with being an odd number is my number of kids. It's okay to have 5 of those . . . but really when you count Tyler I have, like, 6, so THERE!

#5. I have about 10 bins of Christmas decorations (not counting the several boxes of Christmas trees). I decorate each year and then never have a party to show off my fun stuff that sits in our garage taking up space for the other 11 months of the year. Maybe this year I should host something to make all the work worth it.

#6. I am a bed-napper. Sleeping on the couch bugs me. I would much rather get in my bed to take a snooze, even if it's just a quick cat nap. Tyler is a couch-napper. I think it's weird.

I tag Amy E., Amy B., Angela J, Moana, Barb, and LEANNE cuz she never blogs anymore!

Your number 1 totally cracked me up. I do the exact same thing. Troy used to think that if I just sang the songs more, I would get the lyrics, but he's learned that it is hopeless. Now he awaits the "new" lyrics I have for each song.
