Okay, I know I haven't posted in awhile again. Yes, I go through phases. My life is a bit less crazy due to the fact that I am sleeping through the night (all praises to God). But, I am right now recovering from a case of influenza AND bronchitis! Yes, I got hit with a double-whammy! And, in spite of all that. I have been "tagged" by my friend Cari. It means I have to blog about six weird things you all may not know about me...humbling, but I think it's probably the only way she thought I would ever blog again. I told her I would probably have to make them up, because I am so normal, but I think I won't have to. Here we go.....

1) I can touch my tongue to the tip of my nose. I like to consider this more of a talent, than "weird".

2) I can spit really good. I grew up in the country.

3) I don't always answer my phone when I'm home. I don't think this is weird, but it drives my dear neighbor crazy! I just don't always have time. If I do, I will answer, if not-I will call you back. I have three children and I homeschool (which some people also think is weird, but I will not add this to my list), and time is limited to 24 hours in my day!

4) When I was a youth, my parents made me burn(yes, with fire) a Michael W. Smith tape because it didn't contain one word about "God", only "love." Although, is this really a weird thing about me? My parents were going through a real, shall we say-"legalistic"-stage? Yikes! I cried. We had a burning "ceremony". I still remember throwing it into the fire bin we had.

5) My first "kiss", if you can call it that, was in the foyer of a bathroom of this couple from church who were holding a picnic at their house for the church with the pastor's son. Memorable.

6) I took a woodshop class in high school one semester. I got the second highest grade in the class. I loved it! I still have a bench in my living room I made. I guess that's not really weird, but I'm having a hard time here.

Don't worry-I'm sure once Shane gets home, and I say, "honey, what's some weird things about me?" that I will be back on blogging some better ones. I'm sure of it.

On that note, you know there's more to come. Carrie Mills....you're it!

Horray for my friend, Kari! You blogged! I'm so proud of you. And, hey, I'm a country girl, too, so we now have a date for a spitting contest! ;)

Hahaha, number 4 is priceless. I'll have to think of this whenever I'm in a bad mood and it'll definitely cheer me up.
