- When I was young, my should dislocated quite often. It hurt like a beggar! My mom says that I have been to the chiropractor on a few occasions. I do not remember one time that I have been. I think that it was such a painful and scary experience that I have blocked it from my mind.
- I still to this day have an irrational fear of dogs. Even little itty bitty's. This is funny mostly because I have a little dog. To this day I will get the sweats and my heart races anytime I come into contact with a little dog or when a dog barks. This probably due to the fact that I was chased often as a child by nippy little fetchers when I was out running the neighborhood.
- I LOVE pedicures. Not only because it makes your feet so darn purdy, but because I like to get all of the skin and yuck off. I even like to give pedicures to others.
- When I grow up, I want to be a hair dresser. I sometimes wonder if I have missed my window on that. Is 35 to old to go to cosmetology school? because that is how old I will be when I can commit the time to it. And will I be any good?
- I love to have my arms, back and feet tickled. It drives me crazy that I have a husband that hates it!
- I have lived in 11 different houses in my life. My favorite is the one I live in now. Even though it is old and out of date, it has my best memories. I have wonderful memories of all of my homes, but this is the one I will miss the most.
- I wish the outside of my house was as nice as the inside. It will take a long time to make it that way because I feel like I can't do anything to the outside unless everything is done with the inside.
- Someday, I would like to move to another state. I have never lived more than forty miles from my family. I think that it will be a challenge and I will miss them greatly. But I want to know what that is like.
- I have lived in my neighborhood for 10 years. I still do not know the people next door and they have been there for at least three years and have two little girls that are Tysen and Emma's age. I think that I will go and introduce myself this week.
- I wish that I was a better homemaker. I love to cook and be with my children. I hate cleaning though and I really do a half assed job unless I have company over. My sister is the ultimate cleaner. I would love to have a house that looks like hers. It is near impossible when you have a human tornado named, Emma.
- I love to eat potato chips and cheez wiz accompanied by a coke. It goes back as far as 3 years old. My dad always had them. He would pour his coke from the bottle into a cup with ice and give me the last little bit and we would eat Lays potato chips while watching MacGyver or Star Trek.
- I also love the television show "House". I think that Hugh Lauri is a major hottie and I wish that he was my boyfriend.
- I have a pet peeve. It is tall women with short men.
- I have major anxiety when I am in the passenger seat. It is with anyone. Even if they are a good driver. I need to be in control of something that big.
- I hate watching people when they are doing things from up high. It makes me vomit a little in my mouth.
- I love to smell little babies when they wake up from naps. They smell so sweet when they are bathed and have Baby Magic lotion on.
- I hate dirty ears! Just pick up a stinking Q-tip and clean them for heaven sake. Does it really take that much time out of your day.
I laugh at commercials and America's Funniest Home videos a lot. I mean I laugh so hard that it makes me cough uncontrollably and it sometimes makes me pee. TMI. I try not to watch them very often.
Well there are some embarrassing things for you. I hope that it makes your day a little better and not too disturbing.
I tag Kirsten, My mom and Annie.

- I remember when we were quite young, I believe I was around four years old, Kristi and Sean used to walk with us down to the 7-11 on 7000 south and Redwood Road. It was so much fun to go and get penny and nickel candy. Then we would run across the street to Godfather's Pizza. On one particular occasion, we were running across the busy road and I fell. Right in the middle of oncoming traffic. Kristi scooped me up and ran with me to the other side, and said, "Don't tell Mom!" I don't think I ever did. If I had I am sure that would have been the end of that.
- I remember setting up Barbie houses. We would use anything that we could find. We would use a bread pan for a bath tub, a toilet paper roll for a toilet. A shoe box for a bed and we would use books to make walls in our own little Barbie dream house. Boy did we ever have some elaborate houses.
- We often played church. We would use the gray stool as the pulpit, and the vacuum was the microphone. We would break bread and pass the sacrament. That was a good time.
- We also use to play dentist. We would make a retainer out of a paper clip or braces out of gum.
- One time Lance was pushing me in my Fisher Price grocery cart, He would push me from one side of the kitchen to the other. Super fun, that is until I hit the corner of the wall and cracked my head open.
- I remember having sleep outs in the yard. One time we were setting up in the front yard, I was in my sleeping bag getting on my pj's, when everyone started to scream. I peeked my little head out of the sleeping bag and was met by a gigantic German Shepard! Holy crap that was scary. We were all terribly afraid of dogs!
Good times I must admit. Even if there was a little physical pain involved at times. I remember them as good times.

Tysen's best little school friend, Joshua and his sister, Cassy are now my responsibility during the hours of 7AM and 4PM. While I only have Cassy for just an hour in the morning and an hour after school, and Josh for longer because he is in Kindergarten, I have forgotten how hard it is to have children other than my own.
It has gone alright this first week. Hopefully next week we will be able to work out more of the kinks and everyone can be a little more on the same page. Ha Ha!
On another note, yesterday was Emma's 4th birthday. I know, can you believe my tiny little peanut is 4 now? She has grown up so much. Not only in height, but in attitude and maturity. She cracks me up every day. She tells me that I am her best friend forever. She is my little BFF. I love the quality time I get to spend with her while the big kids are in school. Next year should be an adventure since it will be an all day thing instead of just a half day.
