Not it

So, Jessica didn't actually tag me for this meme but I have nothing to talk about today so I am going to do the meme anyway. 

Here are the rules...
1. When tagged place the name and URL on your blog.
   well, i wasnt tagged so i dont have to follow this rule
2. Post rules on your blog.
3. Write 7 non-important things/habit/quirks about yourself.
   everything i write on this blog is non-important
4. Name 7 of your favorite blogs.
   again, since i wasnt tagged i might not play along
5. Send an email/comment on their blog letting them know they have been tagged.

On to the list...
1. I started driving when I was about 13. I did not have a license until I was 18. While my mom always let me drive she would say "If you ever get pulled over, I am going to say you stole the car." I took my chances. Once when my mom was out of town my sister and I had a 'few' friends over. One of the friends wasn't really in a position to drive but tried to anyway. We tried to stop them and caught them down the street. Someone left the passenger door of our car open to try and convince the other driver to get out of their car. That driver decided to step on the gas hitting the open passenger door. Somehow we managed to get the door to close again but it would no longer open so we knew we had to tell my mom something. I said to my sister (who was not a good liar) "Just let me take care of it. You don't say a word to mom and just agree with what I say." I told her we were at the grocery store when a car pulled into the spot next to us hitting our door. She asked if we called the cops and I said no because we don't have licenses. Years later I told her the truth. 

2. I bite my nails. I have bitten them for as long as I can remember. I love long natural nails but can't seem to let mine get there. The only time they do get longish is when I am pregnant. I think the prenatal vitamins help. 

3. I have Fred Flintstone feet. They are small (getting bigger though with each child, I was about a 6.5 now I am about an 8), wide and I have short, fat toes. I hate my toes.

4. When Tug and I first met we despised each other. I mean bad. I couldn't stand him because I thought he was a know-it-all, and he would say the same about me. I don't know exactly when it started to change but eventually I began to respect him. Once I was single (after knowing him for probably about 1.5 yrs) we started dating. A year later we became engaged and 10 months later we got married. Now after nearly 9 years of marriage I am glad I changed my mind :)

5. I tend to grammatically correct people. I can't help it. I correct my kids all the time so it has become habit. If I do it to you please don't take offense. And if I need correcting feel free—at, to.

6. When I was about 13 a new under-18 club called Hot Rocks opened in our town. My sister (2 yrs older) was allowed to go but I wasn't. I was pissed. My mom went out for the night and while watching her drive away I started screaming and banging on my window. My window broke. Luckily it was just cracked, not shattered. In my true liar form I called my Grandpa who lived down the street and asked him to pick me up because I thought someone had tried to break into our house. The next day my mom went to get me from his house and said when she had the window fixed they would be able to tell her if it had been broken from the inside or the outside. I confessed. I think I was a bit of a brat growing up.

7.  One of my biggest regrets is not having gone to Ohio State. I only applied to 2 schools—Texas A&M and Ohio State–and got into both but decided to go to A&M even though I really wanted to go to Ohio State. Basically I chickened out. It was going to be pretty expensive so I used that as an excuse but really I was just scared to move that far from home. Turns out it wouldn't have mattered much since I ended up transferring to NMSU my sophomore year but I think it would have been a blast at OSU. A&M was fun, but Ohio State is (I'm guessing) way better!

That's all for now. Have a good weekend!

5 people are laughing with me:
