My First Meme

I was tagged for a meme over at Play More, Laugh More, Live More a few days ago. I then proceeded to annoy everyone in the house by saying "I got tagged for my first meme" over and over again. To which they replied "what's a meme?" Anyway, she had already done this meme about herself and so she did it about her pets. But as I am new to blogging, I'm sure you are all sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear all the weird things about me, so here goes.

First I have to post the rules:

  1. I love to rearrange my furniture. I mean I really love it. (My husband is the one that suggested this for my first weird thing) It bugs my husband because his parents have never rearranged anything in their house in over 40 years. And, when they redecorate, they buy the same sized furniture and put it in the same places as the old furniture. The great thing is that I now have 2 teen aged boys to do the heavy lifting for me!
  2. I am totally grossed out by spit and phlegm. When I have to clean a bathroom sink that hasn't been rinsed out, I feel sick to my stomach. Now I have 4 kids and I can handle any amount of dirty diapers and throwing up, but its the spit and phlegm that do me in. I could not be a dental hygienist.
  3. I hate spiders so much that I pay my kids $1 for every spider they kill in the house. If they are running low on cash, sometimes they go spider hunting.
  4. I think I am the only woman on the planet who can't multi-task.
  5. My favorite breakfast when I was growing up was toast with peanut butter, jelly and baloney. I'm not sure how that started, but I still like it.
  6. At 42, I am dealing with both acne and wrinkles. Life is not fair.
  7. I am afraid of fried chicken. Not eating it of course, but making it. My family really wants me to make it and I'm scared to death. I don't know why.

So there it is, 7 weird things about me. If you want to play along, consider yourself tagged!

I have a great double dipped fried chicken recipe if you ever decide to work on your fears. And you're not the only one with acne and wrinkles at forty something. (I also have "platinum blonde" hair coming in, but I'm just glad it's attached to my head.)

I'm afraid of cooking all raw meat. I have this total paranoia about food born bacteria so I totally know where you're coming from even if your motivations of fear are different. Yucky raw chickens. :I
