I'VE BEEN TAGGED by Sherry and I have to write 6 weird things about myself: It's taken me a couple of days to think about 6 wierd things about myself but I've only come up 6. Sorry Sherry, I am slower than mud...

1. At the age of 5 I had a police record. Old Lady Hansen (she lived behind us) called the police because I picked the flowers out of her lily pond for my Mother. The police came to our door to investigate and I was having a nap. :)

2. After I visit someone's blog for the first time and view the main page I visit the archives. I always visit JULY first. I was born in July and am compelled each and every time to visit that month first- even if I want to select a different month, it has to wait until I've seen July's entries.

3. I detest going to the mail box to pick up the mail. I can count on one hand how many times I have gone out to the mailbox in the last year. The only time I look forward to getting the mail is on my birthday and at Christmas and still, my husband or the children get the mail. Don't get me wrong, I love mail, I just don't like going to the mailbox.

4. I don't allow anyone to open the mail before dinner, I feel like it spoils dinner because most of it is generally bills, bills and more bills. Oh and the junk mail, did you ever see so much???

5. I have to have flaxseed and fresh blueberries on my cereal every morning for breakfast. If either is out I feel like I am not getting my health fix. I eat flaxseed on toast with peanut butter and honey (mix half ground with half who flaxseed), yum!

6. When I fold bath towels and wash cloths they all have to be folded evenly and in the the exact same way and stacked the exact same way, I then color code them. I also fold t-shirts in a certain way and taught my children how to fold them the same way too.

Oh, who shall I tag? I think I will tag:







Each person who gets tagged needs to write a blog post of their own 6 weird things as well as clearly state this rule. After you state your 6 weird things, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names.Don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you’re tagged” in their comments and tell them to read your blog for information as to what it means."That means you may find a short message from me at any time soon in your comments...

Thanks Maggie!! Wow, that's really interesting about the mail - did anything bad get posted to you or your family when you were young? Do you know how it started? You'd be horrified to see how my towels look this morning! ;)

I had to laugh about your police entry. :)
My blog is only a few days old, so no July to read. I´d be happy to keep up with the blog until July 2007, so that you´ll be able to read it :)

About the towels: my 4-year old daughter decided yesterday, that she needed all the towels to play princess. When I noticed the mess in the bathroom (all!!!! towels were lying on the floor) I told her that she would have to pick them up again and put them back in the shelves. She did develop her own method. She didn´t fold them, but rather rolled all of them up. So i´ve got a huge pile of towel sausages lying in the bathroom now. :)

This was fun to read! I can see the pictures of you waking up from your nap right through to your cereal and bath towels. It is true, our weird sides make us interesting..
