Twenty-Five Things

Okay, so out of sheer laziness and lack of time, I'm just going to copy and paste this from facebook. This is something that's been going around like wildfire (or the flu). Normally I'm not big on these kinds of things, but I love finding out things about people that I never knew, so here you go!

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you

1. Yes, they're fake. When I was 8, I was rollerskating in the (marble) lobby of the apartment building we lived in... my skates slipped out from under me and I landed on my 2 front teeth, and knocked them right out.
2. I've met Harry Connick Jr.
3. I would love to have twins again. And again.
4. My husband is really sweet... he just doesn't want anyone else to see it. :)
5. It really bothers me when friends try to push products on me. I'm not into natural potions, magic teas & juices, organic cleaning products... I don't want to join a multi-level ANYthing, thank you!
6. I would like to go back to school... I know it sounds generic, but I would like to be a nurse.
7. I still sleep with the pillow I've had since I was 2. My grandmother made it for me. I can't sleep without it (and my family teases me to no end about it.)
8. I watch entirely too much tv, and would secretly love to do away with it completely.
9. I would like to take my whole family and go on the mission field. I just could NOT live with those tiny washing machines!! :)
10. When I was in college, my best friend/roomie and I used to go to Walmart at midnight for NO other reason than to sit in the closed McDonalds seats and stare at the people that would walk in. We'd make bets on how many people would be in anything other than sweat pants. I miss those days... and I miss my best friend!!
11. That last one made me laugh and cry at the same time.
12. I watch a lot of movies... and swiftly forget them. You will often find me answering the question "Have you seen..." with "Ummm, I *think* soooo..."
13. I set foot in 3 countries and about 10 states last year.
14. I met my husband at a car dealership - where he sold me my first new car.
15. I used to want to visit EVERY continent in the world. Okay, so it might still be a dream. Can't figure out how I'd get to Australia or Antarctica, though... I AM over halfway there, though!
16. I love taking pictures. You want to know why? Because they help me remember. If I take a picture of something, it helps me remember it. Not the actual PICTURE, but TAKING the picture. If I lost all of my pictures, I would still remember taking them. Does that make sense?
17. I often can't fall asleep at night because I have a song running through my head over and over. Even if it's a song I like, it keeps me awake.
18. Used to hate diet soda. I mean, like hate, hate, HATED it. Couldn't even take one sip... and I'm now hopelessly addicted to it - Especially Diet Dr. Pepper.
19. I like to bite my kids' ears.
20. I wish Rita's wasn't closed in the winter.
21. I wish I had OCD. Seriously.
22. I hate cleaning. Well, it's not so much that I hate it, it's that no matter HOW much I clean, it's NEVER done...and if I pause for a minute, the mess catches up to me!
23. I should be cleaning right now, ugh!
24. I went to Kindegarten with most of my graduating class.
25. I went to school with a lot of the parents of the kids in my son's kindegarten class.

And one extra, just for my blog: I REALLY hate asking people for things, but my post below has actually turned into something FUN and exciting.

That's pretty amazing going to high school with your kindergarden class. I really wish that for my daughter.
