I’m Back and I’m Tagged!

Hey everyone – I’m back! We had a great, quick, mini-vacation in NYC, and I’ll tell you all about it on Monday. In the meantime, here’s my response to BLC’s tag for 10 unknown things about yours truly 🙂 Some of you may already know these, but I’m guessing that the majority of you don’t. It was hard to think of these things, so bear with me, okay?
  1. I’m lefthanded. Out of all 10 kids, I’m the only one.
  2. I go through food-phases. I’ll have like a month or two where I really crave one specific thing, like pretzels, and then I’m over it.
  3. I was voted “Quietest Girl” in my high school graduating class. Most people don’t believe me when I tell them that, but it’s true.
  4. Like BLC, I didn’t drink alcohol till I was 21 years old.
  5. I have a lima bean shaped birthmark on the outer aspect of my left knee. How’s that for random?
  6. I’m constantly anemic, and I’m really bad about taking iron pills. Kind of sad, considering I’m a nurse, but I just don’t like taking medication of any kind. Chris occasionally reminds me, and I’ll grumble and take them for a few days, but then I forget again. Speaking of which, I guess I’d better go take one…
  7. I despise playing card games. I think they’re boring and a waste of time. The only time I ever played Euchre (an Indiana card game if ever there was one!) was when I was stuck on a school bus driving to King’s Island for a physics field trip and Mrs. H and I were the only girls in the class. There was nothing else to do!
  8. I’m really bad about playing board games with Chris. I’m not bad at them, but I get so competitive that I forget that it’s just a game. Chris says that I have this maniacal laugh that I do whenever I win or make a good move 🙂
  9. As I’m typing this, I’m scanning all these old pictures of Chris from when he was a kid and in high school. I want to make sure that nothing happens to them before we move. I’ll probably share some of them on the blog at a later point.
  10. And last but not least, something unknown about me (at least to the blogging world) is that I have big feet. As in, I wear a size 11 shoe. Again, most people don’t believe this because I’m pretty tall (5′ 8.5″) and my feet are proportionate to my height. I consider them my firm foundation.
So there you have it – 10 things that you probably didn’t know about me before today. Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Isn't it fun being in a big family? I have five siblings…can't imagine TEN!

    I wear size 11 shoes too…such a pain finding shoes IN the store that fit. How often do you find yourself trying to make a size 10 work? 🙂

    I love your 10 facts! I too go through food phases. The thing that sucks about these phases is that I get burned out pretty easily. Oh well, no one's perfect.

    Have a great weekend!

    10 kids?? Oh my goodness!!!

    And I do the thing with food phases, too. I eat the chosen food daily until I am so sick of it that I never want to eat it again.

    I'm a lefty too! And also the only one in my immediate and extended family. Except I only write & play pool lefthanded though…

    Your family get togethers must be massive!

    Yay for big feet! I'm also tall (5'9") and also wear a size 11. It's the saddest thing that I can never borrow anyone else's shoes.

    Lol! My roommate wears a size 11 shoe, too! She loves heels and has a hard time finding them in 11's. Do you have that problem, too??

    Glad you are back safe and sound!

    Have a great weekend!!

    Cool post… I can't believe that you are one of 10… and being the only lefty… pretty special!
