So, I was tagged by my friend Nikki. I am supposed to list 6 things you may not know about me.

1. Although I haven't been diagnosed, I'm pretty sure I have a mild case of OCD. I have to do thinks like stir my ice water with my straw 30 times, clean my toothbrush under the water with my finger before I brush my teeth, and have the cans in my cupboard lined up perfectly. There's more, but I won't go on.

2. I had a TON of black hair when i was born. My sister(4 at the time) asked my mom, "Why didn't you tell me you were having a black baby?" I had so much black hair, i guess she got confused.

3. I hate peeing, I think it's a waste of time

4. I played the Cello from 5th-10th grade. I was pretty darn good too :)

5. I'm terrified of being taken by someone. In Minot (about the safest town ever) I used to make Will watch me out the window when I went to get the mail(right across the street). If it's dark when I get home I call Will at our house from our cell phone to watch me walk inside. Thank goodness Christmas is over, now he doesn't have to watch me unplug the lights outside.

6. I'm a procrastinator. I will wait till the last minute to do something. I'm also a perfectionist. It's not a good combination.

I taggedSarah , Nicole, Susie, and Jen

1. I love a nicely lined shelf full of cans. And a shelf that has a label on it so you know exactly which cans go there, is even nicer. I have never EVER spelled the word "I" in lower case and it bugs me when people do. I space my (all white, tubular plastic) hangers evenly in the closet and arrange my clothes by skirts, pants, short sleeve shirts, long sleeve shirts, jumpers, dressers. And in each section from white to pastels, bolds, darks. The kids are color coordinated from drinking cups, I-spy kits, picture frames, clothes hangers (12 only). Hmm... I shouldn't go on. People might feel the need to medicate me.

2. That is a darling picture and hilarious story!

3. Ditto. Danny has told me many times that if I could make him go pee for me I would. He's right.

4. That's awesome that you play Cello. I have always had the desire to learn a stringed instrument like violin or cello. My younger sisters played. I can pick out Ode to Joy. That's about it.

5. I'm terrified of getting taken by something evil. I'm afraid of the dark for such reasons. When I was pregnant with #1, I made Danny go to the bathroom with me in the middle of the night (every night)and also check the bathtub to make sure I wasn't going to be snatched off the throne.

I also used to worry that someone would be hiding in the back of my car and was going to snatch me up when I got in to drive somewhere alone (especially after dark). So, I'd say really loud, "Hey! I know you're in there. So you may as well come out. Do you need a ride somewhere or something?" Okay. Now that I've publicly said that, that just sounds off the wall. But in my defense, it was about 9 years ago. I haven't done that in a long LONG time.

6. Ditto on that too.

I remember about the peeing thing, you be like, "I have to pee," and I'd say, "then go," and you wouldn't. But I still understand it. There have been times I have asked Dan to go for me and he has never done it once. Not once.

We all have our OCD things. Although I don't think I am as far gone as you or Nikki. Maybe I used to be and have just given up. he he.
