8 random things about me (I couldn't think of 10)

Here are some things about me. I tagged myself from Marissa's blog. (I've done this before and if you are interested, here is the link for that

1. I never had a date or a kiss until I was in college. I was pretty shy, especially around boys. I am surprised, still to this day, that I ever got married:)

2. I love to eat raw potatoes. I just had one while I was making dinner. Yummy!

3. My toenails always have to be painted. It's just the way things work around here.

4. I hate to shower and I hate bathing my kids. I think it more stems from the ENOURMOUS amount of time I have to spend drying all of our hair. What a waste of time. But I do it because it is socially acceptable and, it's gross not to! (I do like a nice, long, relaxing bath though)

5. I don't like roses. I think they are ugly flowers. Wierd, I know. My favorites are forget-me-nots.

6. I can never make up my mind. Making decisions is like life and death for me. I just can't do it. I can't, I can't, I can't. It drives Dave crazy. One time I had to pick a children's book to buy from Kira's preschool and it was taking me forever to pick one because of this reason and that reason and I just couldn't decided. So I made Dave pick for me and I ended up crying, at her school, in front of everyone, because I couldn't make a stupid decision. How lame can I get!

7. I love paint. Sometimes I go to Home Depot or Lowes just to look over the paint samples and dream of all the wonderful things I could decorate with the paint. I just painted my house a beautiful brown color and it is so much more homey and nice inside.

8. I admit to being deathly afraid of bananas. I hate them. I have been known to run screaming from someone who had a banana and chased me with it. I don't know why this is. I'm just mental. I finally decided that I needed to at least be able to touch one so that my kids could eat them. It took me 10 minutes at the store of putting my hand out and pulling it back before I could even pick one up without a bag over my hand. I have trained myself to be able to touch them, and now I can even peel them if I don't have to touch the inside. But if one of those stringy things gets on me or near me, it's over. I can't deal.

Loved reading this Megan!! The banana issue cracks me up!! And I can relate to the blow drying fiasco and I only have to dry my own hair! I can't imagine how it's going to be if Sophie ever lets me touch her hair!
