just so you know

A random list of strange habits I manifest. Be nice and don't take me too seriously.

1. I hate seeing myself on camera and potentially even more, hearing my own voice which I understand I am not alone, others hate hearing it too. Smile. So I generally do not take pictures of myself nor usually do I request others take any of me, but every now and again I think it's kind of strange that another 365 days have passed with only a couple of pics to record my existence to my children. So I try to look as normal as is possible, which is mostly impossible and then snap a whole bunch, hoping that one of them is passable. This is the only one that made the cut.

2. I am addicted to my cherry Chapstick and could never go on Survivor for that one simple reason. It is in my pocket by day and under my pillow by night. I do not leave home without it and I keep a back-up in my purse just in case disaster strikes. Hang on. Just thinking about not having my chapstick makes me need to use my chapstick. There. Much better. Onto the rest of the list.

3. I have this favorite sweater (see Exhibit A from 2008 below and quite possibly Exhibit B above) that I would wear everyday but I don't want to wear it out so I force myself to wear my other clothes but the days I give myself permission I often end up sleeping in it too which as my mother told me when I was younger, ruins your clothes, so I try to not do that too often. Phew! These admissions are tricky.

4. I would rather read than eat but since doing only that one activity would eventually prevent me from doing that activity, I eat so I can read. :)

5. The secret reason I homeschool is so I can study and learn. And the secret reason I want to study and learn is to be a returning champion on Jeopardy!. What do you think my chances are? Don't answer that. Actually I just love to learn and think about how it all fits together in God's world. So either way, I'm still a nerd, but at least I'm a Christian nerd.

There, that should be enough to make you need a strong drink and lots of chocolate as you try to recover from this post. I'll try to come up with a post about more normal hobbies and interests for next time.


  1. No, nothing normal just more admissions please! Ahaha! You crack me up. Esp. the chapstick - under your pillow?! I bet you stick it in your bra for safe keeping too, right? :P
    Thank you so much for the new posts! This has made my day!

  2. Heather,
    I am the same with regards to personal photos. I have a handful per year I feel are acceptable enough to post. And, mainly, they feature my kids, but I happen to be in them.


  3. Haha, Gina. Yep, I have. Isn't that what all the extra space is for?? :)


I enjoy reading your comments and try to reply as much as I can. Thanks for reading here.
