I got tagged!

I got tagged. So you too, are now playing tag....

Here are the rules:

Link the person who tagged you. Tell about 6 quirks of yours. Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same. Leave a comment to let them know...Tell about 6 quirks of yours.


1. I am a little OCD. I think everybody has it in them a little bit. Elizabeth, you are going to see how crazy alike we are at times. Okay my OCD is my towels have to be folded a certain way. My cousin Elizabeth has the same problem as me. If it is not folded how I like then I will go behind and refold the towels. They have to look perfect in my closet. I fold them in half and then in half and then in 3rds. They look great on the shelf this way. If I open my dishwasher and things are not put where I think they should go then I will reload it. I have bottles with different colors but they are all the same bottles (baby bottles). The lids have to match. . .poor Erik gets an ear full if they do not match. I should feel bad for him since he is color blind . . . but when I get a bottle ready for Kayla and the Lid is pink and the bottle is green I am irate. THEY. . .HAVE... TO. . . MATCH!!!

2. I am a reality TV junky. You name it and I probably watch it or have watched it even if it is just pieces of it. Deanne, I saw you had this as one of your quirks too. I guess I am not very original, but how many quirks can there be. I love DVR (aka TEVO) then I can record more than one of them at a time and go back and watch them without the commercials. The must see ones for me are "The Amazing Race", "American Idol" (especially in the beginning when they are bad and Simon tells them how awful they are) "Americas next Top Model", . . . Supernanny, Wifeswap, etc, etc. . .I think you get it.

3. I am a little ADHD. I don't like to sit still and I don't like to listen and be quiet for very long. I hate to say it but church is hard to sit through for me. I sometimes find myself wandering the halls and visiting with whoever is there. (I know I am not being a good example) At least with kids I have a reason to be in the halls. It was much harder before the kids because I had no excuse so I just sat there. School was always hard because I had to once again sit there and listen.

4. This is another one for cousin Elizabeth. I am a leg jiggler too. I often bounce my leg at a rapid speed and most times i don't even know I am doing it. My dad does it too. I am sure it is a Grandma Fran Gene passed down since Uncle Jim does it along with all of his rug rats. Maybe it has something to do with my undiagnosed ADHD and not being able to sit still.

5. I like my family to look put together when we are out in public. I like the kids to have clean faces and look like they are well dressed. I like my husband to have a clean shave and decent clothes on. . . a haircut once in a while is nice too. I lose that battle A LOT with Erik. At least with kids I still have some control. When I lose it then my OCD may kick in a little stronger.

6. Everyone that knows me well, knows I am a competitor and I like to win. Who doesn't like to win? It isn't fun playing against someone who doesn't care. When it comes to sports I am somewhat of a snob. . . I don't like to play with people who don't know how to play. Especially when they say they play .. .lets say . . .Volleyball. Then they show up and you wonder if they have ever seen a V-ball let alone played the sport before. I can play for fun if I have advanced warning!:-)

I am tagging. . . Courtni M, TJ, Dannel, Samantha, Rebecca, and Kourtni W. . .mom I saw that Deanne already tagged you so I will be waiting for yours.
