Okay, I’ve been thinking on this for awhile, ever since Ginger at Growing a Godly Family tagged me with this meme.
1/ It has taken me a whole lot of time to come up with this list. Is it not weird that I have spent days and days trying to come up with a list? Adding items and then deleting them because… “um, no, well that’s not quite weird… well it might be weird to some one else, but its quite normal to me…” And so on.
2/ When in delivery I do not show signs of being in labour. Now I’ve only delivered a child twice, but both times they attempted to send me home because I was not in labour. The first time I actually went home. The second time I refused to leave. Then I’d go from “not being in labour” and them finally realizing that I was ready to deliver and have the baby with in 20 minutes for the first and 7 minutes for the second. While my medical records don’t record those hours that I knew I was in labour, I definitely count those hours! [admittedly that last sentence is in no way weird]
3/ I frequently catch myself in the act of putting unusual items in the fridge. I’m not saying they end up in the fridge, I catch myself as they are on the way into the fridge. TV with a side of chilled remote, anyone?
4/ While I still do loose my glasses, I don’t loose them as often. a) my children have finally understood that while Mommy’s glasses may be in an odd spot, Mommy remembers she put them there and when you move them Mommy looses them. That is not a good thing. b) I’ve learned to pat my face first before I ask. This is good as it prevents the: “Has anyone seen my glasses?” “You’re wearing them!” embarrassment moments.
5/ My friend calls me when she can’t find something in her house. So far I’ve been pretty good at finding the item for her. Yesterday she called me to tease me, “I’m at the grocery store and was wondering, Do I need croûtons?” [this one’s an inside joke]
6/ When I take Minutes for a meeting, I find myself wishing they could come up with a spell check that would put that little red squiggle under the words that I start to mis-spell so that I could correct myself as I write out the minutes.
7/ Um, I like labels. Its not so strange that my cupboards are labelled, but I think labelling the shelves and bins in my refrigerator ranks as weird.
