Quirky Things

Oh good grief. My daughter Leisy tagged me on this. I'm supposed to tell you a few quirky things about me. And honestly, I don't think any of these are quirky but some people do tell me they're odd. So, you're welcome to add your own two cents worth about me (as long as you're nice).
1. I don't like to eat my own cooking. My family complains that they worry I am poisoning them. We sit down for dinner and they're eating my casseroles or homemade soups or whatever and I'm eating salad or cereal.
2. I don't like babies. Never have, never will. I enjoy teenagers lots more than babies. I never felt baby hungry or felt that my arms needed to hold and rock a baby. My own were fine but they were lots more fun when they grew up.
3. I can't sit still. My family does accuse me of being obsessive compulsive about it. I polish the countertops while we're around the island in the kitchen, I pull the neighbor's weeds if we're out side visiting, I'll pick up at other people's homes (just ask my sisters--they hate it), or I'll keep moving to exercise.
4. Speaking of exercise, I'm addicted to walking. I love walking. I do at least 3 miles a day but often 6+ miles. I love to walk early in the morning when it's still dark.
5. Lastly, I love even numbers and hate odd numbers. I can't stand the volume on the tv or radio to be on an odd number. If I can, I'll change a hotel room to an even number if it's odd. I'll finish reading on an even page number. I love the ease of even numbers. They're more friendly.

So, maybe I'm missing something but those aren't really quirky and I can't think of anything else. Can you?

you are pretty quirky mum- but at least I know where I get some of it.

haha! I read your #5 about the love of even numbers instead of odd. That's so funny because I am the exact opposite, but regardless I have never met anyone else who had a thing about that too. I was so sad about turning 24 because odd ages seem like so much more fun that I was tempted to just say I was 23 for another whole year and then jump to 25 the year after! Odd numbers just appeal to me so much more, so I'll let you have the even ones and I'll take your odd ones!

I do the same thing as number 5. I have done it since probably my sophomore year of high school. I have to have my volume on an even number.

Oh we're all quirky! That's what makes us all so loveable, right??

Hey Annie! I promise I didn't ignore your texts...I never got any! We will definitely come visit. I'll warn you that Jack is a greater terror than ever though! We'll have to stop by on Halloween and show you his cowardly lion costume.

You know, I dont enjoy that baby stage myself. And YES! Lexi is getting married. On Jan 3. His name is Brennon, they're both at UVU, and I just adore him. She's young...but you know how it goes...not a lot of options when you find HIM. :) It's always great to here from you!

did you take any pics in germany?

Cheri J. Meiners said...

Your number 3 reminds me of my mon--maybe you got that contant moving, polishing, etc. from her. I didn't. :)

Hi Cheri:

the constant moving and polishing is for sure a Howell trait! My dad, Chris, and David all have it too. I guess it's better than drinking, chewing, and picking.

Love ya!
