Funny Quirks

(By Aubree)

I've been tagged...Quirks!

Here are the rules: list 6 quirks about yourself. Tag 6 more people, tell who tagged you!! Heidi tagged me! So, here are my quirks...

1. These first 2 are going to make everyone think I am absolutely nuts! Oh well, I guess I kind of am. If I step on a crack in the side walk with one foot, then I can't go very long without stepping on a crack with the other. It's not like I have to step on all the cracks or anything, but if I do happen to step on one, I have to repeat with my other foot. Weird, I know.

2. So I might be a little OCD. When I'm riding in a car, I have to either flinch my foot towards something on the side of the road like a sign or road marker, or move my finger or or knee or elbow when I pass something on the side of the road. It used to bother me, but I hardly even notice anymore.

3. Now for the not so crazy quirks. I shave my left leg first. I used to have a problem with only shaving one of my legs, and forgetting the other, or maybe I shaved one of them twice. I am not one of those girls who can go 3 or 4 or more days without shaving either, I have to shave everyday. Now I know if I am done shaving my right leg, I am done.

4. I have an absolute fear of spiders. I become paralyzed if I see one, then I scream bloody murder. Jeff really hates this. He tells me I have no right to scream like that unless I've cut of a finger or have some kind of bodily harm. He sometimes even refuses to kill it for me, because he wants to make me stronger by making me kill them myself. I blame my father who would chase my sisters, mom, and me around the house with cat-face spiders.

5. I have to have a plan. I'm not exactly the most organized person in the world, but I am a planner. I think I can blame, or thank my mom for this. She always made sure we had a plan when we were going somewhere with our friends, which is a good thing. If I don't have a plan I panic a little. It can be anything from planning what to eat for dinner, to planning a vacation, to when we will set up the baby's room.

6. I have t-shirts that I wear to bed that I got in high school. I can't seem to throw away some of them, if I just wear it to bed I don't see why not. I can't really see a point in buying new t-shirts to wear to bed unless I will be wearing it at someone elses house.

I tag... Amelia, April, Lyndzi, Anna, Nicole, and Emily.

It's fun to read those things. I can relate to Spiders (and all creepy crawlies) and the Plan!

You are a perfectionist!... I do the exact same thing with stepping on cracks... or if I'm doing something just randomly... like stepping on squares.. I think my body feels off balance...... I'm quirky too.. when I'm reading something anything.. I will find my right hand writing out the words or names in the air.. in cursive.. I don't even write in cursive.. so I just imaginarily write in the air with my right hand...I wish I would have remembered these when I did this post!!!

Tell Jeff you need a big strong man to kill the spiders. My Jeff also tells me it will "make me stronger" to kill them myself. It's not true, I still freak when I see a spider.

I'm impressed that you shave your legs everyday. I feel like a cave woman now because I only shave once a week... if I have time. I know, I know, it's gross but true.

Yep, you're right. I do think you're a little OCD. :) am I. I guess we all have our weird little things. Dan is jealous that Jeff's wife shaves her legs every day. He is constantly telling me that no matter what kind of a granola path I might choose to walk down someday, I'm not ever allowed to stop shaving my legs. :)
