Things you didn't know and didn't need to.

I got tagged on Facebook and decided to post this here.

25 Things About Me

  1. I have an opinion about everything. Want me to share my opinion about something? Just ask! I love to share!
  2. If I can't do it the right way, I won't do it at all. There will be no negotiation and no compromise.
  3. I believe in quality, not quantity--in almost everything. Luckily, I got both with my kids.
  4. I'm stubborn. If I don't want to do it, you will never be able to make me. The Mister finds this trait incredibly frustrating.
  5. I have an inexplicable fear of losing my teeth. I really don't know why.
  6. I talk in my sleep. I also snore--but I won't always admit to that in public.
  7. I love to read, but I can't stand self-help books. I also don't like books that blatantly try to teach me something.
  8. I love to cook. But I hate to wash dishes (even though I have two dishwashers in my kitchen).
  9. I really love to bake. But none of my recipes work at the altitude where I currently live.
  10. I once lost weight by eating nothing but chocolate. I had a headache for a week.
  11. I used to have an entire kitchen cupboard dedicated to making hot chocolate. It contained hot chocolate mixes, flavored syrups, sprinkles, candy canes, etc. I now only have one shelf dedicated to hot chocolate. It's sad.
  12. When I was pregnant with triplets, my doctor told me that all the embryos could split and I'd end up with sextuplets. I banned him from speaking to me again for the rest of the night.
  13. I literally gag while drinking water unless it is a certain brand of bottled water. I like to drink my water at room temperature... I let the bottle sit on the kitchen counter.
  14. Little kids stress me out. And I have several of them.
  15. I grew up with great parents and only one sibling. I miss Tom, a lot. I think my family is changing.
  16. I don't get anything done if I stay barefoot at home. I am much more motivated after I put on my shoes. But they have to be real shoes that require socks.
  17. I'm a technology junkie. I love gadgets--I'm a closet nerd.
  18. People seem to think I'm outgoing and friendly. I don't see it. I'm a homebody.
  19. I'm a homebody who likes to travel.
  20. I'm a germophobe. I have special fears about hotel rooms and airplane lavatories. I have twice flown across the pond without making a single trip to the airplane lav. That's a really long time to "hold it."
  21. I drive too fast and once had my license suspended.
  22. I claim to be at least 5 years older than I really am.
  23. I'm a foodie who hates to exercise. It isn't a pretty combination...
  24. I want to write a book, but I'm still waiting to find the right story.
  25. I'm really excited about k.

I am glad I found out more things about you. I, too, cannot STAND self help and "How to" books and also avoid going to any toilet but my own. I was actually drooling over the hot chocolate self. As for the book, I am still waiting for the inspiration (it's been so long waiting, that nobody believes I actually want to write any more!). I hope we both find it! :)

PS: Six fetuses - that's SCARY!

Interesting! I can testify about the good cook part. And the part about little kids stressing you out stresses me out a little!

I've done the chocolate diet and I''m a bit of a water diva, too.
