Be gentle.. it's my first time!

Here's my first meme.. I was tagged by Jennifer at Blissfully Caffeinated. So here's the deal...

The rules for this Meme are:

1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers letting them know they’ve been tagged.


Mkay.. let's get started...

1. I almost never drive more than 5mph over the speed limit. I often don't speed at all. Part of why I do this is because I still don't have my Iowa driver's license. I only drive once or twice a week (though will be more now that the kids are 'doing stuff') so it just wasn't a big concern. Oops. So I really don't want to get pulled over.. Besides, I like not breaking the law.. much.

2. I always go pee before I step on the scale in the morning. Yeah, I know.. I'm not peeing that much, but still...

3. I have a much harder time not swearing now that I'm a parent. I've never had a problem with language.. just never felt the need to use it. Now? I feel the need.. oh.. every 20min or so.. Poor kids. I guess the bigger problem for me is that once I get into the habit, it's a hard one for me to break.

4. After spending my childhood and much of my teens singing and acting at church and school, I now annoy my children constantly by singing really loud and talking with weird accents. They hate it.. which makes it that much more fun.

5. I was a band geek, and wish I still could be. I played 4 instruments. I started when I was.. I don't remember.. a kid. I took 2 years of piano lessons. Then joined band in 6th grade and learned clarinet. My Junior year, I took up oboe - my favorite. Then, my Senior year, for the good of the marching band, I learned trombone.. we were short on boners. I totally want to go to my parents' house and steal my brother's trombone so I can bring it home and play it.. or fix my clarinet (it sounds like CRAP and really just needs to be replaced).. or get an oboe.. heck, I don't care. I just miss it.

6. I LOVE being pregnant. I don't really want more kids.. but I'd be willing just so I could be pregnant again and give birth. I love it all. I've thought about being a surrogate.. but just don't know that I could part that easily with the baby at the end. Why do I love being pregnant? I look WAY better pregnant. I'm one HOT pregnant lady.

So there it is. A small peek at who I am. Now, on to the tagging...

Not only do I pee before I stand on the scale, I take off my earrings and shave my legs.

ChurchPunkMom said...

lol... lately i'm just avoiding the scale altogether, tbh... ugh - lack of exercise and extra snacking.. not good. no amount of early morning urination can cure that!


but my earrings are kinda heavy...

Ok I did it. I didn't tag anyone else though. I've been trying to get my birth tub set up;)

ChurchPunkMom said...

I'll let you off the hook. ;) I know you're busy with much more important things!!!

Enjoy your tub!!! :D

Amie said...

I love these! I will have to try and think of some so I can the meme...

PunkRockHillbilly said...

I'll get on it...just one question...why is it called a meme?

BTW- I also love being pregnant...my husband started to call me the Happy Cow while I was pregnant and I didn't even maim him!

Dina said...

I pee before I step on the scale too.

And I can relate to the swearing thing. I don't think I realized that until I just read your post.

I was one of those people who RARELY said a swear word. But now I do a lot. Or at least I think them to myself a lot. They're almost constantly going through my mind.
