5 Random Factoids

Kelli tagged me HERE ages ago and I just have not been able to think of anything for the longest time! I still as I sit here begining this post am not sure of what random things I will put, but I am supposed to put down 5 randoms about me.

1. I pick my lips. Very Bad. Like to the point of icky red and raw lips. Not pretty. Thank heavens for chapstick...
2. There are like 15 open tubes (possibly more, make that for sure more) of chapstick in my house. My current favorite is the Burt's Bees with Pomegranate oil, I am bound and determined to actually finish this one.
3. When I get bored/nervous/antsy I mess (read: pull out hairs) with my left eyebrow. Chances are you have seen me in various stages of eyebrow-ness due to this habit. At one point after a really good yank I had about 3/4 of an inch of eyebrow left...that was not fun!
4. I have a tendency to be a pack rat, but I hate clutter. Makes no sense at all.
5. I still sleep with my baby blanket (aka blankie). It is soft and I use it as a perfect pillow. This thing has been EVERYWHERE with me. Not many nights have been spent without it.

And there ya go. Another random post for the books. Now I tag... Missy, Julie G. and Jenny G.

HAH! Someone else has millions of chapstick tubes hiding about the house! I'm not the only one!

You're definitely not the only one. Sarah always has to use my chapstick even though she's always buying more. It gets lost or eaten or wiped on various things throughout the house. Sarah says it's Bella and Aubree who do it, but I have my doubts.

Dude! Thats not cool..they do too steal it and eat it. I LOVE chapstick...b/c I pick my lips too! A very un-breakable habit, and they are pretty raw right now!

Hehe, when Keith and I were dating and into newlywed-hood Keith would always keep a chapstick in his pocket for me b/c I would always lose my own! I finally got one of those snug little things to keep a stick on my keys!

How have I not commented on here yet? My past two days have been too crazy. I also have a jillion tubes of chapstick. Yet, I'm still searching for them because they are lost.

C'mon you slacker! Now that you have me checking this thing on a daily basis, I expect regular updates. Or at least pictures of my grandchildren. Oh, stop picking your lips. Love. Dad

Shannon said...

Yeah, we have been sick dad! But I will try and take some newer pictures of the kiddos tomorrow and post them. I have had blog wirters block for a while and we haven't been doing anything fun. Now that we are better I just have to get back into the groove of real life!

Shannon said...

But hey! I am glad I have you checking the ole blog, makes me feel good!

It's nice to see a bunch of ladies on here that I know! We have chapstick all of the house. I don't pick my lips as bad as I used to but Jon sure does and he's always asking for a tube of chapstick. He is experimenting with diff kinds to find the best one. By the way I love your Black Apple print. I can't wait for my own office so I can hang one!

We're siick (whine). You kids. When I was a kid, when we cooked over open fires and lived in caves, it didn't matter whether we were sick, we walked miles through the snow to school, uphill both ways, always toiling, never complaining, blah, blah, blah, etc., etc. . . Seriously, I'm glad you are all feeling better, and I do look forward to checking your blog - I feel like we're not so far away - and the new pictures. I am planning my head off for this trip. Good thing we have the Hummer to bring all the stuff. Love. Dad
