7 Random Things

Ok, I was tagged by crazymamaof6 (Julie) and now I have to think for a minute...

7 Random things about ME in no particular order:

1. I love chicken, but I prefer the breast meat. I don't really like the dark meat, but will eat it if it's already mixed in like a casserole or something & not plain. I also love turkey, again only the white meat. I don't like steak, but I will eat shredded beef or meat cut in very small bite-size pieces. I do like ground beef, as long as it is really lean (well-that's how I buy it anyway). I do not like pork, except I'll eat ham (cold cuts or the spiral ham we cook at Christmastime). I don't like seafood, except I will eat albacore tuna in tuna salad. I HATE the smell of seafood. I know I'm weird, and have strange exceptions, but that's how I eat it.

2. Dark chocolate is my favorite chocolate, but I also like milk chocolate. My favorite candy bar is Butterfinger. I like to eat all the chocolate off first then eat the crunchy part! I do the same with Reese's Peanut Butter cups, 3 Musketeers, Kit Kats, Mounds & Almond Joy, and I'm trying to think if there are anymore. I do like to suck on whoppers until the chocolate melts off then eat the crunchy center (I do the same w/ Robin Eggs - love those at Easter). Again, I know I'm kinda strange. Oh well.

3. I LOVE peanut butter. Candy, ice cream, sandwiches, etc. As a kid, I used to take a spoonful of peanut butter and eat it or for a special treat, I'd dip the spoonful of pb into chocolate chips so it was kinda like a pb cup. Mmmmm!

4. I hate liars! I do not lie and don't allow my kids to lie either. When they do, they are in trouble until they can tell the truth. I always tell them that if they tell me the truth up front, they will be in less trouble than if I find out later or they have lied & then confess the truth. I just think it's so shady to lie. I mean the truth always comes out!

5. I have had foot surgery on both my feet. Had bunions removed! Ouch! So, on my right foot, I have a nice thin line of a scar (had that one done w/ Felicia was just a baby - Oct 1999). BUT on my left foot, I have a nice big wide puffy scar (had it done a year ago). Yuck! I guess that's what you get for using different doctors, plus I guess I didn't stay off my feet very well this last time & caused my wound to not heal nice & smooth. And, since I was prego w/ Anson, my toe next to my big toe on my left foot has been hurting really bad almost as if it's broken. Had several x-rays and one MRI, and the podiatrist in Texas wanted to operate, but then we moved back to AZ. Again had more x-rays and they can't find anything wrong. So, today I'm having an MRI to see if they can find out what is causing all my pain! Wish me luck!

6. I HATE doing the dishes (includes emptying the dishwasher)! When we were first married, I told Ben that I didn't like doing dishes because I had washed the dishes a lot when I was younger & I helped emptying the dishwasher. LOL :) He believed me very quickly cuz we had a couple times where our sink was full of dirty dishes and no clean ones in the cupboards (remember it was just the two of us and didnt have that many dishes) but it did include pots & pans and cups. Boy we could go thru the cups. I told him if he wanted the dishes done so badly, then he could do them himself. ha ha. He did that a couple times and said NO MORE. We also realized that we didn't need to get a clean cup every day. We would use a cup then rinse it and save it for the next day until it was time to run the dishwasher then we'd put it in there. Dang that really saved us space in the dishwasher & our counters! I have done TONS better! Once in a while, I will wait a day or two to catch up on a few dishes, but never like those other times. I HATE dirty dishes. Now I taught the kids how to wash their own dishes & put them in the dishwasher right away. They also take turns emptying it. I mean, majority of the dishes in there are theirs. They're usually happy to help!

7. If you can't tell from my blog...I have become totally engrossed in digi-scrapping! I LOVE it! I have always loved scrapbooking but never got around to doing very much. I love seeing everyone else's scrapbooks! Now that I have discovered this & learned how to use photoshop (still learning more fun things) and found tons of websites w/ info & scrap designs, I can't stop! I have downloaded tons of freebies & purchased some from online stores. I love to see other's layouts to get ideas for my own. I think it's so FUN to create digi-scrap pages. I recently printed most of mine out & put them into my kids' scrapbooks! I also created one for Ben & Me. My hubby isn't quite as enthusiastic as I am, but I know he likes my layouts & tries to "sound" enthusiastic & interested. Thanks for trying, Honey!

Ok, I guess that wasn't so bad coming up with that many things about myself. I don't usually like to talk about myself, thank goodness I have my kids to discuss. ha ha.

Alright, now I need to tag 7 people.

We could definitely go out to eat together. The only thing I do different, is that I eat Filet Mignon when we go to a steak place.
