Tagged....You're It!!!!

My friend Kelley just tagged me on her blog Sunshine and Rubber Duckies!!! I am supposed to list 7 weird/strange things about me and I am supposed to link this and link that!!!! Well with that said I will start:

#1 The first weird/strange thing about me is that I do not know how to do all of that linking stuff on a post!!!

#2 The 2nd thing is that I feel sorry for ceiling fans if they have to run all day!!! My sister Kerry runs hers all the time 24/7 , and it drives me crazy, probably about as crazy as I drive her because when I am over there she is constantly going behind me and turning them back on since I am always turning them off!!!! Gosh people they get tired!!!

#3 The 3rd thing is that I am a compulsive cleaner!! And I must admit that I will totally pray that nobody stops by when my house is not as tidy as I like it!!! My friends and family always say that my "not so tidy" is what they wish their house was all the time being that my house never really appears dirty. But you other OCD people out there you know what I mean right????? There is just a certain way that I like my house to look and smell and when it is not there it makes me crazy!!!!

#4 The 4th weird thing is , like Kelley I have a tattoo on my lower back , Frank gave it to me for my birthday 2 years ago, it is really pretty, it is about 5 inches wide and the focus is a Butterfly with mine and Frank's symbol on it. I also have had a tattoo on my ankle for about 15 years, and actually I would love to have the chinese symbol for "complete", or "Family", or "Love" or something in that order put on my foot after Franceska comes home, but Frank says No More Tattoos!!!! And if your wondering , yes I have already asked God to forgive me for marking up my body!

#5 The 5th weird thing about me is that I have an obsession with lipstick! I can't stand to not have lipstick on. OK so think I am weird, maybe I am!!!

#6 The 6th weird thing is for some reason I love getting the mail out of the mailbox, I know I have that stupid look on my face too!!! I don't know why but I just like to get the dang mail, it excites me and who knows why, it is only junk mail and BILLS!!!!

#7 The 7th and weirdest thing about me , and I might add that every single person in my family would agree with this is that I am ADDICTED TO THIS BLOG!!!!! I have become so dependent on all of my online friends. It is like having a conversation with several people all day long. Isn't that sick!!!! I think it is because most of us have a bond of waiting for our daughters at the same time. And I look to all of you that are already home and the families that are still waiting for encouragement, laughter, positive thoughts etc.......So call the men with the white coats because I am weird and very strange, and now you know it!

The list could probably go on and on, I am kind of thankful that 7 was all that was asked for!!!!

Now since I don't know how to do the link thing: I tag.......

Lesson on linking: (you have me laughing with your 7 things, by the way--I love getting the mail, too)

When you are composing your blog, highlight a word that you want to link to. Then click on the little paperclip on the bar at the top of the post. You may get a warning at the top of your screen about using a scripted window. If so, just click on it to temporarily allow the window. You'll get a "script prompt" that pops up, and that's where you type in the address that you want to link to. You can link to your old posts, you can link to other webpages, you can link to online stores. Girl, it is fun, fun, fun. Let me know if you have any trouble getting it to work. I can help!

You are one funny blogger! I too am addicted to the blogs. I guess there could be worse things out there though.

ps.. I too have a tatoo on my ankle. I sometimes wish I didn't have it though. :0(

I feel the need to clip a split end on my hair the second I see it. I am afraid I won't find it again!

Janet said...

Lipstick aholic....check.

I don't think you are so weird. You sound pretty normal to me : ) And I love my blog too. I have met so many amazing people.

I loved meeting everyone on the aturday morning chat and hope to more present next week! I love your blog and wish I had the OCD gene. My Mom, sister and brother all have it but it simply skipped me! I'm adding you blog to ours so I can follow along.

To answer your question of how Becky became Graeme. It was definitely a God thing. I wanted to submit a medical checklist for special needs with this adoption and dear husband wasn't ready. He is in nursing school now. The wait started to increase and I slowly convinced him that it was the right thing for our family. We anticipated waiting 8-10 months for a special needs referral when 2 months after we submitted they called us about our son. So baby Becky turned out to be Toddler Graeme and we are thrilled!
