Seven Things (You Didn't Need to Know) About Me

Earlier I received the sweetest award from Carrie at carrotspeak. It's called the Beautiful Blogger Award, and when you receive it, you're supposed to tell seven things about yourself.  Here are mine, which should probably be called Seven Things You Didn't Need to Know About Me:

  1. I have a son who is my Mini-me, except he is much better at sports. He and I can argue for ages. The Husband doesn't get this at all. 
  2. I have a daughter who seems to take delight in diagnosing herself with all manner of ailments and conditions. Recently, she claims to be OCD, ADD, and just plain Weird. Wonder where she gets this? P.S. She is none of these things except probably the third.
  3. I am something of a hypochondriac (see #2).
  4. I have had long hair for many years, and it has made me dislike wind. I will never own a convertible.
  5. I am a procrastinator of the first order. Why do today what you can put off until next year?
  6. In health and environmental matters, I am very Crunchy. I nearly came to blows recently with a German doctor. 
  7. I'm a Word Person. I'm not that bad at math, but numbers just aren't my thing. I remember absolutely nothing from two semesters of college accounting except that there are these things called debits and credits. Never ask me to be treasurer of your club. 
Okay, so my dog is standing still as a stone and staring at me from across the room. He doesn't normally do this, so I think I will investigate. But I will leave you with a photo of him, in all his cuteness, just because.

Yes, I know he needs a haircut.  It's on my list (see #5).

Very fun take on the 7 things!

Kristin said...

My son is totally my mini me. Exactly the same temper. Ah ha ha. I HOPE he's better at sports than me. The hubs played pro and he's gonna be crushed if the dude has my athletic talent!

joanny said...

very Crunchy?

what a fun family you have there, and your dog is oh so cute. My dog needs a bath and haircut too , but alas I keep saying it isn't warm enough yet ,, a handy excuse if you need one.

Love your adorable dog. Want to scoop him up and steal him. Would that be awkward?

I like your 'list', no.2 and 3 are very amusing. I had a relative who was a hypochondriac, infact I inherited her medical books (from where she diagnosed her symptons) LOL! X
P.S Your doggy is very cute X

The Vintage Kitten said...

The word verification was 'speremis' I wonder if I could have a week off work with it? LOL!

Thanks, gals!

Willow, I should probably have been a Virgo, but I'm actually a Capricorn!

Jaime said...

I owned a little jeep once...and hated the wind/long hair dilemna...I wanted to shave it all off at times...but chose to keep the top on instead.
I will never own a convertible again. sigh.

What a sweet little dog!
