I've been tagged


My friend Laura tagged me for a meme of 6 things/habits about myself. I have absolutely no idea what to say (if it had been 6 things about Butterfly or even Juice I could have done it!) so you guys are getting the first 6 things that pop into my head.

  1. I always have to fall asleep on my right side. Juice and I call this 'assuming the position' because it has to be on that side. It's been like that for as long as I can remember, even back to my first house in Colorado. I remember because I would fall asleep looking at the ballerinas on my wall and naming them (Lily, Rose, Pumpkin, Petal). I don't sleep on night on that side, it just has to be the side I start snoozing on.
  2. I am incredibly nosey when it comes to other people's fertility. This is especially odd since I'd like to keep ours under wraps a little bit. BUT, I always figure if they are having trouble, I have so many helps! There is always something I know that they haven't tried, or I'm great at being supportive while they go to doctors, etc. I also know all the lingo so they don't have to explain things to me.
  3. I talk to my mom every Tuesday night. We have a standing date that at 8pm my time (6pm hers) I call and we chat for hours. I think it keep us connected even though we live thousands of miles apart. Besides, I like hearing about what my family is up to, and what her friends at work are up to, and their kids too. Okay, maybe we talk way too in depth but all I have to say is the saga of Loser Boyfriend is worth hearing. Sometimes we will record and watch the same tv show and talk about it while we watch. It's fun and I look forward to it every week.
  4. I am horrible with names. Unless I write them down, I have a tough time remembering them. And spouse's names seem to be the toughest for me. Especially if I've only met them once or twice and only heard about them through other people. I frequently cop out of saying them by just asking, "How's your husband?" instead of "How's insertnamehere?" But once I have the name, I'm pretty good with keeping it. I am great with faces.
  5. I love looking through catalogues. I rarely buy anything from them, but I love looking through them and imagining me actually having these things that I think are pretty cute. It's my version of window shopping I guess. I also have a good time buying things online and can generally get pretty good deals.
  6. I want another dog. I won't get one because frankly, our house is too small and we have a little bit of trouble keeping the one dog we have walked. But, I would love a small pack of cairn terriers running around the house. I told Juice if Soot is 7 and we have no other dog, that's the time to get one. I would like a dark girl this time and I intend to name her Ashes. Juice still wants to name her Charcoal Briquette and call her Bricky but I bet my name will win out.

Whew, that wasn't as hard as I thought! Now I have to tag 6 people...My Brother because he hasn't posted much, Cousin Jen, Jill in France, Julia, Melissa, and Valinda.



  1. Hey - I was already tagged once and it took me a week to come up with 6 things doesn't that count? I love the holidays because I get 100 different catalogs, I might just order something out of one of my favorites because it's the only place I can find something Jr. requested!

  2. Watch out - here I come!

  3. That was fun to read! I did the same thing--just wrote about the first 6 things that popped in my head. And then I thought..."boy! That was kinda negative!" Haha.
