A Little Quirky....

I got this idea from my sister Lisa to do a little blog of honesty--to list 10 things that most people probably don't know about me! I love reading these about other figured I would give it a whirl!!

1) I am a huge morning person. 6:00 am is my perfect hour if I am just getting up naturally on a free day. I like 5:30. 4:45 is when it gets a little difficult. This weekend, I slept until 7:40--and woke in an irate burst of anger at myself for being so lazy!! I felt terrible and wasteful!!

2) I love scrubbing floors. It is my favorite job around the house. Ryan always insists that I go buy a nice mop, and that it would be so easy. But I refuse--I love scrubbing the floor!

3) I enjoy running in the rain. It gets old after awhile. But running during an occasional rain is refreshing, and is just a new and fresh intensity.

4) I have always had the dream of being a personal trainer. I wish they got paid better. I would do it in a heart beat.

5) I'm really antisocial in public. Walking into a store--I will do everything in my will to avoid eye contact with the "greeter". I feel like friendliness to strangers is wasted energy.

6) I had a job for about 2 weeks as a housekeeper at AmericInn. What I was thinking when I applied for this job is beyond me!! It was awful. I love to clean--don't get me wrong. It was the "co-workers". I never realized white-trash could get THAT trashy.

7) I was a loser in high school. I had ask guys to be my prom date both years. Practically had to pay them! The lunch breaks where the normal kids spent time in the hallways enjoying themselves, I would lock myself up in the band practice rooms and practice piano or trombone!

8) I drink too much coffee.

9) I really, really don't do dogs. I remember when I was like 16, and telling my mom and dad "When I get married, if my husband gets a dog I will THROW MY RING at him! My husband WILL NOT have a dog!" ...... Well, many years later, I am married. And let's just say this is one of the things we won't be compromising. He is well-aware that I will not tolerate a dog in the house!! I just don't do animals.

10) I eat lemons and limes like you would eat an orange. I peel them, and eat it section my section. I swear by them and feel like they the cure to everything!

I know you are too young to remember your Grandpa McDougall, but he would eat lemons like they were oranges as well! I akso like lemons, but must admit I have never eaten an "unaccompanied" lime. Maybe you have access to better citrus in the warmer climates!

You are so funny, Abby! I really enjoy getting to know more about you.

I love reading these. Ok, i don't love scrubbing floors. But I like the finished product, so I do it.

I hope you feel better soon!!

Oh, Abby, nothing you said surprised me, except the part about not greeting strangers in public! That is something you need to work on! You don't have to talk, but a eye contact and a smile can change another person's life! Try it - you might like it!
And keep scrubbing those floors, my daughter! And yes, your Grandpa McDougall loved eating lemons like that! I enjoy them, too! I also like to take a swig of Real Lemon juice from time to time! M-M-M good!
