6 Quirky Things

Tagged by Candee
So Candee tagged me and this looks like fun. Ya, I know, it was like a month ago, but still.

The Rules:• Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.• Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them.• Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged. Thats it!

1. I NEVER return phone calls. I don't know why but I hate to talk on the phone. Most of the time when I am on the phone I am going from room to room trying to hide from my kids who haven't talked to me all day but suddenly all 4 of them have something SOOOOO important to tell me that they just can't wait. It is just a pain in the neck so hopefully all of you readers will understand that it's not just you!!

2. I still love cheerleading, (maybe it's just wishing I had that body again) but I do want to be a cheer coach someday. I think it would be so fun! I guess I never grew up! So maybe someday you will all have to call me Coach Coley:)

3. I am just like Dori on Finding Nemo, I forget things almost instantly (could be another reason I don't return phone calls). I walk in the kitchen to get a pen and end up getting a drink and doing the dishes. It irritates all those around me!! Maybe I will take memory pills like my Dad, but then again he said " I think they would work if I could remember to take them." I don't know where I get it from.

4. My first job was at a place called Ab's Drive In. I think I made like 4.25 and hour. I flipped burgers, cut real potatoes for fries, made shakes and was the cashier . My family used to come there to eat lunch on Saturdays, I always used to charge them 1/2 price. (I don't think they knew that)-ya, your welcome :)

5. I love to catch critters, not spiders and creepy things, but frogs, snakes, lizards and stuff like that. I usually act like I am just doing it for the kids but I love it!! I am lucky I have 3 boys and a tom-girl.

6. I never have my rear-view mirror in the right place. It is always facing the kids, I figure that there is more of a chance of them hurting each other in the back seat than having someone rear-end us and possibly getting hurt that way!!

Well there you have it, some very uninteresting facts about me!! Enjoy. I noticed that Sarah hasn't done this yet so your tagged again Sarah. I also tag...Chad, Lori, Mandy, Megan and Cammie

I think the forgetfulness thing runs in your family. I've heard Candee mention it, now you, and I know for sure Tyler has it. Or wait maybe his is selective memory. I'm not sure about Ben and I know your mom remembers things from like 20 years ago and we all know your dad :) A cheerleader catching critters is kind of funny to think about. I'm glad your blogging again, we've missed you. And to reply to your comment you are very welcome and we love you tons!

I was going to leave a comment but forgot half the stuff you wrote in your blog already. I really do think we ALL got the Dori syndrome. At least you just forget to call people back I actually call people and as soon as they say Hello I forget why I called them in the first place so it could be worse!!!

Sarah Jo said...

You are so cute. I am so excited to see your new ride :) I will do this tag soon, if I remember! I think I've been around you and Candee too much, I find myself forgetting things all the time.

I hate talking on the phone too. Ben forgets everything! I can tell him something and walk out of the room, come back in and he'll already forget. But it's good when I buy something he doesn't want me to, because I tell him that I already asked him and he was fine with it! :) He doesn't remember if I did or not, so it's pretty funny. (ok, I don't do it a lot!! but it does come in handy :)
You would be an awesome cheer coach, Brandon was one for lone peak high for a while. Anyway, thanks for your comment on my blog, your the best. And don't worry about the stress thing, it's more of Ben is just worried about you. He's just a protective big brother and wants you to be happy and taken care of. We love you tons and hope to see you soon!!

Mandy said...

I totally agree. I hate to be on the phone when the kids are around. I always wait until they are totally into something and then sneek off into the back corner of the house, and try to talk as quiet as possible. Then it seems like their little radars go off and there they are.

Cammie said...

Being on the phone when kids are around is a pain. I hope someday you get to release your inner cheerleader! GO TEAM!

Chad said...

I may participate in this tag the day after you return emails!
