5 Things…

Taking a cue from one of my favorite blogging buddies, Have Stroller Will Travel wrote a “5 Things” post recently. It’s always fun (and moderately scary, let’s face it) to discuss things people don’t know about you. At the end of this post, I’d love it if you could take a few minutes to comment with 5 Things people may not know about you! 
If I get at least 5 responses, I will pick the one that made me laugh, cry or gasp with shock and send that user a Momma Needs a Beer bottle opener. Yup, that’s right! Incentive to comment! 😉

5 Things you may not know about me… 

  1. Both times I got pregnant, I knew before I peed on a stick because beer just stopped tasting good.
  2. I can’t stand to be around people who chew loudly. I’m kinda a freak about it. If I can hear you chew, I get slightly turned off, and occasionally nauseated. 
  3. Even though I haven’t nursed in over 10 months, I’m still lactating. 
  4. Shopping for myself stresses me out. Doesn’t matter if it’s groceries, clothes, with or without the kids, necessary or splurge; I feel anxious spending money and exhausted when I’m done. I don’t know if it’s my upbringing, because I don’t bring home a paycheck or if I never developed that girly-shopping gene. 
  5. A big guilty-pleasure of mine is Days of Our Lives; been watching since I was 11 years old (thanks to my Grandma). I DVR Days daily just so I can skip the commercials and story-lines I don’t care about. I have it down to about 45 minutes of viewing time/week. Although, when I’m sick, it’s a very comforting thing to watch from beginning to end: like sands through the hourglass… 
Your turn!

    1) I hate when members of my family rifle through the bread package WITHOUT washing their hands first.

    2) I’m a hypochondriac AND I work in a funeral home

    3) I still catch “The Brady Bunch” whenever I can and can often guess the episode within the first 10 seconds.

    4) I think people who chose to hide my Facebook posts are seriously missing out.

    5) Under this thick skin, really lies a compassionate, sensitive person.

    1~ I am absolutely terrified – and I mean TERRIFIED – of putting eye drops in. I am incapable of doing it myself. My husband has to sit on my chest and pin my arms down with his knees while holding one hand on my forehead and try to sniper bomb the drop in with the other hand.

    2~ I am very anal about organizing my shopping cart.

    3~ I think Ketchup is the food of the devil. Keep that stuff away from me and my fries gosh darn it!!

    4~ I think people that are left handed are just cooler people. I am not one of them…

    5~ I don’t wear my seatbelt very often. I don’t mean not to; it just isn’t a habit for me – I don’t know why. I know, I know, I know – bad, bad, bad. You would think that my, now 3 seatbelt tickets would have taught me by now… I am awesome.

    1~ I can tell the difference between a male and female lobster. Working at Meijers Seafood Counter while going to Delta will do that for a girl 🙂

    2~ I LOVE cookbooks and cooking magazines, unfortunately I don’t make nearly enough things out of them b/c my hubby is a picky eater.

    3~ When I was little I used to pretend that I was one of the Pips. The matching outfits, the moves….. Loved it! I really think I was a backup singer in a past life.

    4~ Until I moved to Pittsburgh I was not much of a sports fan. Now, Penguins and Steeler parties to watch the games are a norm in our group of friends. Hell, we even have season tickets for the Pens!

    5~ I have no sports abilities, sometimes I question my gross motor skills as a whole, I am relatively sure that God gave me a sense of humor and quick wit instead.

    1. My spice cabinet is organized by ethnic group. I am that insane.

    2. I impulse shop for my clothing – but have never been disappointed with a purchase. However, if I have to think about it for even 1 minute, I can guarantee you that I will be disappointed.

    3. I cannot sleep past 6:30am . . . even if I don’t go to bed until 1am.

    4. I love it when Dan and I can take a vacation away from the kids. I love my family with all of my heart – but it’s nice to just be a “person” once in awhile instead of a “mom”.

    5. I really enjoy Phineas & Ferb (but will also be happy to introduce the kidlets to Ren & Stimpy when old enough to watch . . . . we don’t need 3 and 5 year olds calling people idiots).

    1. I am 28, very happily married with a 7 month old! I have no idea how single moms keep their Sanity!

    2. I really miss my “me” time. I never realized how lazy I was before my baby. What did I do with all my time?

    3. When pregnant I loved anything orange flavored. Especially orange Sunkist. For about a week until I learned it was the only orange pop that has caffeine. So I switched to the Wal-mart brand. Now I do not want anything to do with the stuff.

    4. I have never been on an airplane. Not sure I ever will be. And I am ok with that.

    5. I wait for the odometer in the vehicle I am driving to make a pattern. Examples: 77477 or 76767. I calculate how many miles until it will reach it. It makes me upset if I miss it!

    1) I’m going to be 47 next week. I am raising a newborn grandson, think about putting on the porch for the stork some nights… im to old for this stuff
    2) My trash cans are now full of diapers instead of beer cans
    3) new coasters are now baby boy socks
    4) I like to creep people on facebook
    5) I can’t wait to have a beer today

    1- I once walked into a room to interpret and my client announced “I don’t have any problem with nudity, does anyone else?” and took all her clothes off. Within 2 minutes the entire room was naked…except for me.

    2- I didn’t own a computer until 2007.

    3- I named both of my cancer tumors after terrorists. Down with terror!

    4- I performed with Marvin Hamlish (Chorus Line), Julie Andrews and Dana Reeve at the Kennedy Center.

    5- I really really wanted my belly button to pop out when I was pregnant. Apparently, my prayers got mis-interpreted and my son has an outtie and mine never popped.

    1. I am terrified to the point of being irrational when it comes to bugs.

    2. I would faint every time I smelled eggs when I was pregnant with my first child.

    3. I sing loudly in my car by myself.

    4. I love musicals.

    5. It saddens me to over hear Mother’s with young children say they can’t wait for their child to reach this age or that, or to do whatever on their own. I remember saying those same things and now that my babies are 21, 16, and 15 I wish that time would not have passed as quickly as it now seems.

    Love Your Blog – Glad I Found It!

    Keeping up with 2 little girls, writing assignments, music gigs, the house, laundry, ETC, backwards, wearing ass kicking boots and a smile, without spilling my beer. Ok, ok, so I spill my beer, but my floors have never been more germ-free since I started putting a little alcohol on them. Who needs ammonia...
