Random Facts

Here are ten random facts about me:

1. I used to sell my sandwiches in elementary school to the highest bidder. They were that good. I guess my mom has mad sandwich making skills.

2. My husband is the one and only guy I’ve ever kissed.

3. I am crazy decisive and love making decisions.

4. I have a talent at rewriting the words to songs. Wayne Brady ain’t got nothin’ on me.

5. I have never been in a limo.

6. I hate having my sheets tucked in because it is absolutely necessary for one foot to escape at any given moment.

7. Just the thought of going “caving” or scuba diving gives me a panic attack, which leads me to believe I’m more claustrophobic than I ever knew. On the flip side, I would go skydiving in a heart beat.

8. I am a lousy gardener…oh wait, everyone knows that. 😉

9. I worked at a restaurant after college and hated it.

10. We didn’t have TV growing up, so I am now a bit addicted to watching television.

Alaska: A Nice Place To Visit, Not To Live

I realize more and more that I am a slave to the sun. I thrive under it. When the sun is out, I am energized and alive. Every year when the time change comes, it hits me hard. I stop being able to function after 5pm. I go to normal events that I attend weekly at 7pm and feel like it is the middle of the night. I am not joking when I say that I am IN BED by 7:30pm. Absolutely ridiculous. I have NO idea how the people of Alaska (or anywhere farther north) survive during those months when the sun is out for maybe an hour every day. I know for certain that I would shrivel up and die. Truth.

Dream Job

This weekend I figured out what I want to be when I grow up. While I was thrifting, I had a brilliant idea. In the back of most thrift stores, they have lovely elderly people helping sift through and price items that have been donated. And I realized there were used puzzles on sale. I thought…how do they know that the complete puzzle is in there? And that’s when I came up with the best job description yet…I will be the puzzle putter-together-er person in the back of the store. What a lovely thought! They could set me up with a little table in the back and I would just sit there for hours doing puzzles. And I’m sure I could invite people over to join me with my job. So I’d be socializing AND doing puzzles! Brilliant!
