Mother Hen pulls me back to blogging


I have been on Haitus for a couple of weeks. I was reading blogs but didn't feel motivated to post on my own. I've been trying to spend my pregnant time and energy on other things. But how can I refuse a meme when I've been tagged?


Mother Hen over at http://www.shipfullofpirates.com/ has tagged me with a 6 Quirky Things meme.


Here are the rules:

Link to the blogger who tagged you.

List the rules.

List your six quirks.

Tag 6 others.


Okay, here are my quirky things:


1. I do not like salsa. I spent five years in Texas- three in San Antonio and I was not converted. I have never liked, and still don't like, salsa.


2. I love to climb trees. No, I'm not climbing any while I'm pregnant, but I have never outgrown my passion for a good climbing tree.


3. I believe Big Foot, Champ (in Lake Champlain), and the Loch Ness Monster could (and probably do) exist.


4. I have obsessive compulsive disorder when it comes to having things in a certain place in a certain way. I don't care so much about dirt and dust, but I must have a place for everything, everything in its place. Ever since High School my friends (and now my husband and kids) will move things just so see how long I can go before I have to "fix" it.


5. I love bright, funky nail polish (green, yellow, orange, black, blue)on my toe nails but will only put clear, sheer or nude polish on my fingernails.


6. I can't eat bananas while I'm pregnant. Can't even be around them. They set off my gag reflex. Same with brushing my teeth... of course I have to brush my teeth but it must be very quick or I'll end up in trouble.


There... I'm done. I don't think I have six people to tag but I will do:






That's three people which is six divided by two!

THERE you are. I was wondering if we'd ever hear from you again. I can understand the banana = gag thing, but really, no salsa? How DO you watch sports on tv? wait. The proximity to the salsa is WHY I watch sports on tv. Never mind.
Come on back to my "new" blog and check out the blog make-over.

I have the same problem with brushing my teeth--and I'm not pregnant--and I used to be a dental assistant! I think it has to do with the foaming.

A friend of mine brought me some toothpaste from Germany several years ago. It didn't foam like American toothpastes so it wasn't as bad.

I brush as fast as I can, too. The taste of most toothpastes is mint, so now I can't stand mint, unless it's covered in chocolate. I have to use cinnamon or kiddy-flavored toothpastes to help with the gagging. Maybe some of these ideas might help you too!

By the way, glad to see you're back and hear that everything's ok!

Blessings--
Dana

Hi! So glad you posted. Glad to hear that you are just saving energy and not sick.

I used to love to climb trees, but haven't done it in a while. I think if I saw a good tree I would try it. Just to show my kids how, of course. ;)

I saw pictures of the Loch Ness Monster and heard about how similar it is to a dinosaur. Interesting for sure!

I just have to finish typing the meme. I will probably post it later today.

Bye!
