I eat green olives by the jarful

I sweat enough for four teenage boys.

I have really ugly feet.

I catch cold when anyone in the vicinity thinks about sniffing.

I don't like whipped cream.

I'm directionally impaired - I've gotten lost in my hometown, where I spent two-thirds of my life.

I hate laundry.

Sometimes, when I don't have a tissue handy, I wipe my nose WITH MY HAND.

Sometimes, I judge.

When I have a new book, I tend to ignore everything and everyone in the vicinity.

I'm bad at making grocery lists.

I have to shave my toes.

I get cranky when I'm hungry.

I usually don't do anything special for holidays.

I don't do windows.

I never know what I'm making for dinner til about 5:15.

I hate talking on the phone, and avoid calling people at all costs. Even for pizza.

Sometimes I still bite my nails.

I'm responsible for at least a tenth of the road to hell with my good intentions.

I have really bad morning breath.

... And he loves me anyway.

Aren't we lucky? :)

I think everyone has to shave their toes, they just aren't willing to admit it.

I shave my toes. Sometimes. And sometimes I just have hobbit feet. That's what shoes are for, right?

And my husband loves me anyway, too.

Great guys we have. :)

awwwwwwww! Now I need to go give Jared a humongous smoochie!

Head Nurse or Patient- you be the judge said...

We have a lot in common according to that list :)

Thanks for the beans instructions- made them for my RM son tonight! He said I did a good job.

Tiffany said...

We are pretty much the same person...except a different man loves me. And well, we're not REALLY the same person. But..sort of we are. :)

Becky said...

And you're brave enough to put all these things in writing, which gives you a huge head start on the rest of us.

So more power to ya.

There are days when I feel like this too. But for the most part, it's "I have a huge zit on my chin and he still wants to kiss me!" Sometimes I think he is a better person than I am. . .

Kazzy said...

Seriously, are we related?

Kazzy said...

Oh, and I get a huge jar of green olives in my Christmas sticking every year!

Happy Mom said...

Yup!!! (except no green olives and I pluck my toes instead of shaving)

And mine still loves me too! It's a beautiful thing!

Fig said...

At first glance I thought the top one was "I swear enough for four teenage boys". This is true in my case, though probably not in yours. :-)

Carry on.

I remember getting lost going to your house my JR year and ending up on I15 not knowing where in the heck I was! How often was I at your house back then?!?

I still get lost all the time going home from work. It happens every time I try to take a "new" way home to avoid an accident or other traffic.

Melanie J said...

I thought you stole my list, except for the green olive thing.

Sweating in the endless heat said...

You are awesome!!!!

DeNae said...

This was fabulous. And swap green for black and slightly less sweating, and you've got me.

Oh, except your husband could take me or leave me. That's one big difference, I think.

Kimberly said...

What a guy!

And we have a worrying amount in common. Except I hate olives and I don't bite my nails because I'm scared I might accidentally swallow one and do intestinal damage to myself.

Dorothy said...

I love this. Thanks.

Becca said...

Wiping your nose with your hand may seem gross, but as someone who tried wiping her nose on her arm...the hand is a much better option. Unless you have long sleeves on. Then the arm wins.

Can you tell I have put thought into this?

Melissa Bastow said...

Holy cow, you just described ME. Except that I don't shave my toes. EEEEEEEW, what is wrong with you?!!!!

Just kidding - but not about shaving - I really don't have to - my toes are never hairy - however I do sweat enough for seventeen teenage boys, so that should really make up for it.

I came across your blog quite by accident (oddly enough, I was looking for the soundtrack for the movie "The Majestic" - how random is that?) and found myself smiling and laughing and thinking a lot. Thanks for sharing your adventures with family on this 3rd rock from the sun!
