Ugh, today is one of those days I wish would just end! It's going sooooooooooo slow for me. I don't have a ton to do at work (for once ... but just wait until next week when I have payroll, staff meeting, and our board of directors annual retreat all in the same week) and I would rather be at home and running errands. I need to get my mom's birthday gift (i'll probably go after work), get food for this weekend (Friday - my cousin and his wife are coming over, and Sunday for mom's birthday lunch). I'm always the one to organize things in my family... so I just tell people what to bring and when to be there. :)
So, what are everyone's plans for this weekend?
OH I almost forgot, I wanted to thank Kelly over at Keeping up w/ Kelly & Co for the Beautiful Blogger Award! :) Now I have something to write about... haha. I've been so stuck in a blogging rut latley.

So, seven interesting (or random) things about moi? Let's see what I can come up with...
#1) I don't like to be restrained, in any way, shape or form. Even when Eric goes to kiss me and like grabs my head, I always pull away. Eek! (he says I have "control issues" lol) One time Eric and I were play wrestling on the floor and he pinned me down in some way and I kept saying "let me go!" and he wouldn't... so I started crying! It wasn't fake, and I'm not claustrophobic, I just HATE being restrained. Wierd-o.
#2) I hated my nose growing up. I used to think it was too pointy and went "down" (instead of those cute, little perfect noses). I would "hold" it up with my fingers in hopes it would eventually stay that way. HAHA. I'm used to it now, and I guess I can thank my dad for giving it to me. :-P
#3) I was homeschooled all through highschool. I took Sign Language when I was younger, and Spanish too. I don't remember anything but the basics of either one. If I were to try and learn a new language now, it'd probably be something impractical like French, because I like the way it sounds (even though Spanish would be wayy more practical, especially living in Florida!).
#4) I don't eat any vegetables. Ever. (Unless they are sneakily stuck in my food somehow.) I sometimes wonder how I've stayed relatively healthy and alive up to this point, but I've done ok. I hate the smell, taste and texture of them. I don't really eat fruit either, but I like the taste of most fruit, just not the texture. I LOVE fruit smoothies. Recently I've been drinking that V8 Fusion (light) to help the food pyramid balance. :)
#5) My friend Sarah jokes that something is always wrong with me. I think that has only (maybe) been true in the past 2 or 3 years... it all started when I had to get an appendectomy. Later on that year I had a stomach ulcer. Then the next year I found out I had Supraventricular Tachycardia, and had surgery on that a year later. Then I had an off and on cyst on my neck that I had removed a few months ago. I can't remember what else has happened to me... although I've never broken a bone!
#6) I come across to most people as aloof, casual and calm; I kind of have a 'whatever' attitude. I don't give a lot of information out unless you ask, then I'll gladly tell you. However, deep down I'm super sensitive and hate seeing people hurting. Just the other night I was talking to Eric about someone in my family and started crying, wishing I could give them all of my money (even though it wouldn't fix the problem). I hate being so "sensitive" sometimes, but I guess it keeps the other side of me in balance.
#7) I don't drink caffeine. The most I ever get is when I have a diet coke or sweet tea. I hate coffee, and rarely drink hot tea. I hate energy drinks. One time Eric and I were trying these crazy "diet" pills that had caffeine in them, but I didn't know how much. I took the recommended two pills in the morning, and within minutes was shaking and couldn't concentrate. I couldn't believe how awful it felt to have that much caffeine!! Eric took two as well and it didn't have any affect on him. I'm glad I don't need it to get through the day!
