I was tagged by Suzicate (months ago)to tell you ten things about me that you don’t already know. I bet you thought I missed that or forgot about it. NOT, just lazy.

1) I am a stocker. I stock up on household items. A habit that was formed when hubby started hauling locally. The job is weather based and the winter months checks can be very small. So I stock up for us to make it through the winter. I sound like a chipmunk! LOL!

2) I love any candy that involves chocolate and peanut butter. Reese's are my weakness! I have to stay away from the candy isle at the store!

3) I have awful feet. Some people are so blessed to have beautiful and/or pain free feet. I am not one of them! My toes never grew right cause my shoes were too small as a child, they curled. The bones are not straight, they give me hot burning pain from time to time and I have one toe that loses feeling. I also have a friggin bunion!!

4) I eat Tums like crazy. I have heartburn all the time.

5) I am hooked on Jewel Quest Solitaire!

6) I am obsessed with the silverware drawer being perfect. Everything must be in its proper slot. Hubby messes with me all the time, by throwing the silverware in the drawer! Even stuff that don't belong in that drawer!

7) My Dictionary and my Atlas are the most frequently opened books in my house. The dictionary...cause YALL USE A LOT OF BIG WORDS!!

8) If the phone rings in this house it is 98% of the time someone in my family. Mom, Dad, sister, brothers, SIL's, niece and even MIL's!

9) I must have a night light on. Not that I am afraid of the dark, but this is more for the reason that I am a clutz!

10) I love to watch birds. Hummingbirds are my favorite. I put out two hummingbird feeders and sit on the patio with my coffee and just watch.

Now, who to pass this on to?

The Locals Love It
Starting Over
Pines Lake Redhead
out of the boondocks and into the burbs...
Morgan Madness
Life in the slow lane
Here is what I think...
Gently Said
Day to Day Life

Okay folks, I'm done! That took up so much brain power, I'm going to have to go take a nap to reboot!

Interesting....I am a spider solitaire freak!!!! And there are certain items in my house that I stock up on because I don't ever want to run out! Thanks for playing tag with me!

I stock up too when things are on sale. But it's totally in case of the zombie apocalypse.

I am a huge klutz also.

I keep open in a seperate tab when I write so that I can make sure I am a.) using those big words correctly and b.)spelling them properly!

Love these posts where you tell us random stuff about you!

I used to pound TUMS all the time, too. I eventually went the Prilosec route, and that helped a lot.

Thanks for passing this on! I'll try, but I blab so much on my blog, I'm not sure I can come up with ten things everybody doesn't already know.

Oh, and I use a nightlight, too. I have ever since I went to summer tent camp in the Adirondacks as a teenager. The nights were so black and scary, I vowed no more darkness!

Suzicate...Oh I play Spider Solitaire a lot too! Sorry this too so long to get done!

Spot...The zombie apocalypse is definetely something to be prepared for! LOL!
I would never make it as a blind person!
I always forget about the website. Thanks

MJenks...I do Prilosec when I can afford it, it's just so expensive. It definetely helps though!

Rockygrace...Well I'm still in the getting to know you stage, can't wait to read it.
I vowed no more darkness..hubby says that's me, having lights on all the time.

I love Reese's too.
And I am also a stocker; I hate being caught without.
I'll bet your feet arent' as bad as you think...

Wonderful post, sweetie! I love learning more about are so down to earth and humble...and HONEST! We need more ppl like you!

I think hummingbirds are the most amazing little things! I wish I could sit there w/my coffee and watch 'em with you...

Okay...confession, here. I also sleep with a light on but not because I randomly knock into things but because I'm fairly certain that dark will bring with it boogey men with oogly googly eyes. Yep. Lame. =)

Maureen...yummmm, Reese's! I hate when I under judge our supply and the good checks haven't started yet..I get scared! Hubby says my feet are cute and unique, but if he could only feel how they hurt!

Kathryn...Awww shucks (Blushing)! That would be so cool. I'm sure you would be better company than my dogs fighting over who gets to sit in my lap!

Mindy...LOL!!!!! I would probably stub my toe on the boogey man!

I love watching humming birds! We just put up a feeder at Jason's end of the summer. I hope this summer we'll have some regulars. I saw one so there is hope.

The only people who call me AT ALL at home, work, or on the cell are family!

Thanks for the tag! Now I need to think of 10 things. Is there a deadline?

Mama Badger said... [Reply to comment]

Thanks for the tag!

Now I have to come up with 10 things? That you guys don't already know? That might be hard.

I have nightlights all over our house. I have no qualms about saying I don't like the dark. I have no desire to feel my way around my own darn house!

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

Angelia...We started with just one hummingbird the first year and by the second year we had about 10. I'm thinking this year might be a 3 hummingbird feeder year.

Pines Lake Redhead...I love family, but I wouldn't mind something wild to be thrown into the mix. Nope NO deadline!

Mama Badger...Your Welcome! Take your time, it was hard for me too. Glad I'm not the only one who has nightlights!
