I have been begged asked to do an optional meme by my friend Jennifer. I would be more than happy to ablige. So I am supposed to tell yall 8 things about me that yall might not know. So here we go......

1. I am not a morning person! I really don't like to talk to anybody if I don't have to until at least 30 minutes after waking up. When I do have to talk to someone I make it short and sweet.

2. I am rarely on time. I don't know maybe its having 3 kids and having a bazillion things going on. My family even tells me the wrong time to get me to places on time.

3. I do not like bananas in my banana pudding. Just give me the pudding and wafers.

4. I don't like answering voice mails. I will answer them at work, but on my cell phone or the answering machine at home, you can forget it. Currently there are about 7 voicemails on my cell phone and I really don't know if I will check them or not.

5. I am not very good at finishing things. I have so many cross stitch things started its not even funny. I have several Bible Studies started and not finished. I start reading books and never finish them.

6. My nephew thinks I look like Gloria Estefan. "Come on shake your body baby do the conga I know you can't control yourself any longer" "Do that Conga Beat"

7. I dont like clothes from a thrift store, Goodwill, or yard sale. Not because its from the thrift store, Goodwill, or yard sale, its because I don't know whose clothes they are, where they have been, or anything like that. I don't know it just freaks me out. If I touch them I feel like I can't touch anything else without spreading the germs everywhere else, and Heaven forbid if I touch my face after accidentally touching some clothes in the thrift store. I think its because I know they have not been washed, and they just have a certain smell to them. Now if you were to get the clothes from one of those places take it home and wash it for me, without me touching it, I would be fine with them. Shoes on the other hand whole nother ballgame, I wont even go there.

8. Sometimes I have a tendency to be OCD. If I just locked the door, and walk away from it and have the thought in my head "Did I lock the door", I have to go back and check it even thought I know I just locked it.

So there you have it 8 random facts about me. If you want to know anymore just ask. If I have the answer I'll tell you. :)

Hmmm. I guess I know you pretty well. I already know everything about you that was on this list.

1. Not a morning person. Knew that. I have the scars to prove it. You make conversations short and sweet? I think not. Try short and excorcist like. :)
2. Rarely on time. Umm yeah. Thats a mild understatement. Remember...we are rolling your casket into your funeral 15 minutes after the service begins.
3. No bananas in banana pudding. And no corn in goulash, and no onions in potato salad, and no pecans in green stuff. Got it. Made a note of it.
4. Don't answer voicemails. According to some people, you don't ever answer the phone either. Not naming names, but their initials begin with Mama and Daddy!
5. Not very good at finishing things. Bless your heart, you get that from me. Accept it. I have. However, you'd darn well finish that book I gave you to read. What page are you on anyway?
Thats what I thought... page 0. Next time I talk to you, I want you to have read at least 20 pages. K? K.
6. Gloria Estafan? What nephew? We've been saying this since way before you even had nephews.
7. No used clothing? What about that Goodwill bra and panties set that you bought?
8. OCD? Since when do you lock doors? BTW, Did you turn off your curling iron this morning?

:) :) :) See? I know you pret-ty well don't I?

I have a few more....

1. You always have an open door policy at your house. You make everyone feel welcome no matter how messy it may be. Good for you. :)
2. You don't know how to spell oblige. Get a dictionary girl!
3. You wanted to be Donnie Osmond when you were a little girl. :)
4. You give all of yourself to your family. Way to go!
5. You aren't ashamed of your faith. Double good for you.
6. You don't mind me giving you a hard time because you know how much I love you! At least I hope you know how much I love you and that I'm just playing with you. You be sure to let me know if it starts getting old and then I'll TRY to stop. Of course I can't promise anything. I've been doing this for nearly 35 years.

How come I wrote a long post on your blog, but can't seem to do it on mine?

Love, Lisa

This was SO GOOD and the follow up post and answers from you between you and your Sis had me rolling. It makes me wish that I had a sister. I feel like I know you a little better now and we have more things in common!
