A few more things about me…

Here are 10 more random things you may not know about me.

1. I do not like my coffee “warmed up” until the cup is almost empty. I don’t mind if it cools.

2. I do not like to touch paper grocery bags, I don’t like the texture. I hated covering the kids’ schoolbooks and was glad when they were big enough to do it themselves.

3. I learned to read long before first grade, which bugged the crap out of my first grade teacher. I was the original “Baby Can Read”.

4. I played the string bass when I was in middle school and high school.

5. I cannot whistle a tune, but can whistle loudly with my fingers in my mouth.

6. I did not use my whistling technique to call for my kids. I just hollered their names. They could hear me from two blocks over. Of course, that was back when it was safe to let your kids run the neighborhood.

7. I love to check the mail. Not email, although that is fun, too. I love going out to the mailbox to see what the mailman brought.

8. Sunrises are my favorite part of the day.

9. I have one purse. I hate when it is time to shop for a new one.

10. I love catchy songs on TV commercials. I look them up and put them on my iPod.

Here is my current favorite:

Now tell me something about you!


  1. I also have one purse. My choice this season is th color tangerine. I have received so many compliments I haven't been able to keep track. So my motto is if you're only going to have one purse, make it eye catching. Oh, I don't spend a lot of money on them either. I figure something that gets thrown on a table or floor has to be sturdy, but inexpensive.

    I've heard that song before. It's quite a catchy diddy. What does it advertise?

  2. It's amazing what you learn about your kids by reading their blogs!

  3. I have a completely uncalled for fascination with zombies. I love the mythology and the culture around it. I've gone to 4 zombie walks in Portland, have a plethora of books on the subject (mostly fiction, of course, I'm not one of those people). My mom thought it was so bizarre, but I can tell that she is used to it now because for Christmas she bought me a bumper sticker that said "I have a zombie plan."

    And strangely? I do have one.

  4. When I pour a drink, I have to use a cup that will fit exactly the amount of liquid I have. If I want a small glass of milk, I can't put it in a big cup, even though it's the same amount of liquid.

  5. 1-9 smooth sailing. Number 10 - weird.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
