MEME-YOUYOU-huh?

The only reason they call this kind of stuff a MEME that I can get at...is you talk ALL about yourself. Which you know I LOVE to do, but when I'm put on the spot, if you can believe, I freeze! I can't think of a thing about myself...it almost sad. For a few minutes I withdrawal in myself and get utterly and horribly depressed about how unoriginal and totally boring I am.

But after the .34 seconds, so not even a whole second, I'm good and my vain, selfish, and wonderful personality emerges.

So I was tagged most recently by Jen B. and Binks about 7 quirky things about me (but Binks' was only suppose to be 6...They were most recent, but I have had wonderful others that have tagged me about this as well. :) Thank you guys for even THINKING about me to tag me. I also got tagged about showing the contents of my purse...but I'm deathly afraid of what I'm going to find in it...so that one might take awhile...like after sessions from a therapist, that I don't even have.

Okay--let's get on with this:

1. I scare easily...even if I see someone coming to scare me, or see them around the corner to scare me...when they jump out to scare me...I scream! I have even been known to hit someones chair or my husband at a movie theater. But take me to a Haunted House...and nothing...it just doesn't do it for me!

2. I hardly EVER dream, if ever, so when I do...I analyze the HECK out of them...even though I KNOW it was just a dream.

3. I LOVE, LOVE peanut butter on my pancakes.

4. I hate massages...so I've never gone to get one done by a professional...the only person that I can tolerate is Mountain Sport Man and that is because he's incorrigible.

5. I still read like 5 or 6 books a week...even when I'm busy...I always find time. That means I get almost Zero sleep...because when I start a book, I get really into them and it's hard for me to put them down. Going along with that...I HATE finishing a book...I'm always a little bit sad. So I LOVE series!

6. I'm guilt driven with almost everything in my life. With my religion--I feel guilty when I'm not doing the things I'm suppose to be doing. With my kids--I feel guilty when I'm working and when I'm too tired to spend time with them--that goes for my husband also. I feel guilty when I haven't seen extended family or close friends for a while--I feel guilty when I put my foot in my mouth when speaking with people, then I try whatever I can to make it right again, I think they call that back peddling. I feel guilty when I dry heave at anything that smells...like throw up, when I should be holding my kids' heads to comfort them, or when I would change their diapers. You get the picture.

7. I love being pregnant...I love Labor/Delivery...what I hate, the healing process afterwards along with being the sole provider of my infant 24/7. You may think that makes me a bad person, but it's how I feel. My favorite part after having my babies was the time when they could sit up by themselves and I could finally have some time to do other things. Don't hate me, that's how I feel...sorry. Again, now I feel guilty for even saying that...but I'd feel even more guilty for not saying it because it's true and I always like to keep it real! :)

8. There is only suppose to be seven...but I just want to state this...I have Quirky humor, I LOVE to amuse myself. And my husband KNOWS and LOVES this about me...so I was surprised when this happened...I want ALL of you to know that I am NOT a stalker...when my husband found out about THIS post he said, "Great, now everyone that knows me that reads your blog is going to think I am married to a stalker!" I said, "But you KNOW me, you know I am just doing this because I think it's funny...not REALLY because I care about the comment!" He said, "I know, but THEY don't."

So for all of you that DON'T know me, but KNOW my husband...or are reading this blog for the first time...I AM pretty boring and normal...but I LOVE to do things to make me laugh...because I like to find humor in life! :) So in light of ALL of that...

Day 3--NO comment from Ree! :) Love ya sweetheart! lol! And thanks Binks and Insane Mama for letting me go see your comments...made my WHOLE day...I'm glad others out there have fun with my QUIRKY humor! lol!

Okay...I think the rules are that I'm suppose to tag like 7 other people. But then I would feel guilty for leaving people out...or maybe for making them feel obligated to do it because I asked them. SO...feel free to consider yourself tagged if you'd like to tell the world your quirky side...or feel free to ignore it! :)

Love ya

Shelle

BOO!
Peanut Butter is the BEST!!!
On everything!!!

Massages? the thought of someone kneading my fat and wobbly bits kinda creeps me out.

All that guilt is fabulous blog fodder. You back pedaler, you.

I loved being pregnant, too and at one time considered being a surrogate. My favorite time for the little buggers? (You are not alone) When they were old enough to self propel but too young to talk.

Quirky humor? Can you add sarcasm, satire and dry wit?

Thanks for playing!!!!

More comments for REE, # 182 right under yours. She will have to break eventually.

Trish said...

I'm with you on #7. But I have rough pregnancies, so there are parts of the pregnancy that I don't enjoy. Like the morning sickness, reflux, long doctor-enforced bed rest, fear, swollen limbs, mood swings. And labour hurt a lot, too. Then the baby turned blue, and it was terrifying, and ...

No. Actually, I'm not with you on #7. Why did you enjoy pregnancy? ;)

georgie said...

Toss the Guilt and Catch the Joy: A Woman's Guide to a Better Life


Are you tired of worrying about things you can't control? Do you feel distracted or overwhelmed by the daily demands of living? Do you wonder if it's even possible to make space in your busy life to become the person you really want to be? In her down-to-earth style, popular author and speaker Merrilee Boyack presents eight pairs of contrasting characteristics, inviting women to consider their own tendencies: Faithful or fearful? Focused or distracted? Peaceful or worried? She then discusses how we can move from where we are to where we want to be without feeling guilty or discouraged.

This is the book you need to read. I saw her at Time out for Women...wonderful!!

Shannon said...

I do love me some peanut butter... but I have never heard of anyone putting it on pancakes! LOL

Lisa (Funny Farmer) said...

I'm with you on the loving pregnancy/delivery and hating the first few months of having a barnacle attached to my body 24/7. If I could have had a night nanny I might have had twice as many children as I did.

Tiff said...

I hear you on the guilt thing, I'm the same way, guilt and worry/worry and guilt. GAWD...

Shannon said...

Hey! Love what you're doing to pioneer woman. too funny! i can't wait to see how it all plays out!

Barbaloot said...

So with you on the massages!! I just can't stand having someone else touch me like that. Maybe when I'm married I'll lighten up..:)

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Don't EVEN apologize for #7!! I always say that the first 3 months are hell, especially if you're dealing post partum depression, like I was.

Oh, I'm a worse person than you because not only do I hate the first 3 months (well, hate is a strong word, they are so gosh, darn cute when they are new), but I also despise the whole pregnancy and delivery thing.

MERRIANNE said...

oooh girl! i love learning all these NEW & EXCITING things about you!!!!

and

i wish i was there at the Pizza Factory.... :(

Jen B. said...

I'm really behind... just read this. Sorry!
Hilarious you love peanut butter on pancakes! I've eaten them that way since I was a little girl & now have my girls doing the same thing! It's the best!
Thanks for sharing!

I vote Brooke cundick , cause its funny but its not.

Karen said...

I vote Brooke Cundick because #1 she looked so funny in her last- Don't you hate it when and this time she is getting what I call "paybacks" Ha ha haha

whitney frehner said...

Um I vote Brooke C because that just sucks!

Amanda said...

We are a lot alike. Except I LOVE newborns! Hence the 5 children in 6 years. Also, I hate series books. I can't stop reading them either and I feel like a slave to them. Especially when I don't really like them. Even when I do like them, I feel slightly annoyed that I feel out of control about what I to read.
