Five Facts

It's Friday!

And no, I have not lost my mind.  It is Friday for me.  Tomorrow morning my hubby and I are hitting the road.  Just the two of us.  We are only going away for two days, but, nonetheless, I am excited.  There will be no school to teach, no boys to wrestle and argue with, no teenager to constantly remind me of how uncool I am or to roll her eyes at me, no dinners to make, and no puppy to let in and out, in and out, in and out all day long. Yep, it is just going to be and my main man.  This is going to be awesome! And since March Break will be just getting underway when I get back, this will be my last post until school is back in session.  You'll survive; I promise.

Anyhoo . . .

With the thoughts of a two day holiday to distract me and it being February and all, I have absolutely nothing to write about.  It is kind of freaking me out.  This never happens.  I am never at a loss for words.  Okay, since I have clearly just written two paragraphs about absolutely nothing, this is definitely not a case of a loss for words, but rather a loss for ideas.  So, I am stealing an idea from my favourite blogger, Nat the Fat Rat, and I am going to share five things you may not know about me. Fun!  Thankfully, this is a blog and I will never know  if you stop reading right now.  So, go ahead.  I will not be offended.  (just don't tell me, please)

Five Things You May Not Know About Me

Number 1:

I can wiggle my nostrils.  Fascinating, right!  Yes, I am one, very talented woman.  When I was little, I saw someone do it, and I decided right then and there that I would be a nostril-wiggling adult. Why? I don't know.  It just seemed like a valuable thing to learn so I would stare into my mirror every night as I was brushing my teeth, and will my nostrils to wiggle.  Eventually, they did and I have been able to do it ever since.  This talent fascinates Avery to no end, and he is determined to join me in this elite club.

Number 2:When I was little, I aspired to become a cashier at Sears and to live in a mobile home.  These must have been my retirement plans because I also wholeheartedly believed that I was going to win the Miss Universe pageant someday.  With a talent like nostril-wiggling, I think I had a chance  . . . tee hee! 

Number 3:
My first and only foray into acting was during my university years when I played Angry Vagina in the Vagina Monologues. I know! How cool is that? I can pretty much now say just about anything in front of anyone after that experience.

Number 4:  
When I sleep at night, my toes have to hang off the end of the bed. Being the shorty that I am, this means I have to position myself halfway down the bed. I also have to sleep on my belly and use one particular pillow case because it is soft and does not irritate my face.  I also rock the sleeping world.  I can pretty much sleep anywhere at anytime.  Just ask my in-laws, who almost always find me snoozing on their couch during our Sunday visits (with toes hanging off the cushion)

Number 5:

When I was little, I could not walk on grass in my bare feet.  My mom used to set up our pool so that one end of it would touch our paved walkway in order to give me a grass-free entrance and exit.  She's the best mom ever!  In fact, I still have bare feet issues.  I am good on the sand, but other than that there are very few things I can touch with my feet.  I even wear shoes in the house! Weird!

Well, there you have it.  You now know everything about me, and I still know very little about you.  So, leave a comment about some obscure talent you have or some little known fact about you.  I would love to read them!

Happy Friday-For-Me!

See you in March.

More fun facts: I have never had a blonde hair, I lived to wear dresses, and I was the loudest kid on the street.

  1. I have a similar story to #1, but with my baby toes. I remember as a kid just staring at my baby toes willing them to wiggle, and it worked! I can now move them at will, lol!
