About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to a small snapshot of what life's like inside my little corner of the world. I'm Shelly, I have a satisfying career and I'm shackled to my supurb husband. I'm the step-monster to his stylish son and together we have two stunningly beautiful daughters - Sugar and Spice, two stubborn dogs and a squawking bird. These are just some of the stories of my life.

7 Random Things

I was tagged by Tina at Golden Goodness for this meme.

Coming up with something interesting could be a challenge.

Let me see....... I have several a few hang ups that I could tell you about; for instance...

  1. I can't stand the sound of people clipping their fingernails. Those things have a habit of taking flight. One could fly over and poke my eye out!

  2. I also don't like it when people floss their teeth outside of the designated area (meaning the bathroom). Whether it's water or a diet Barq's, I usually have an open drink beside me and if someone is flossing their teeth beside me the particles might land in my drink....and that's just gross!

  3. I used to be afraid to look in mirrors in the dark - the whole Bloody Mary thing. I was afraid that, even if I only thought about it too hard, something other than my own reflection would appear. I still don't like the idea of looking into anything where I should see my reflection and that not being what appears, but I'm not quite as spooky about it as I was when I was younger.

  4. I do not like to drive and I get anxiety whenever I have to go somewhere unfamiliar - even if I've been there before; if it's not a place that I go on a regular basis, I will have anxiety about getting there. And if you're in a hospital, you can pretty much hang up any thoughts of me coming to visit - unless I can find someone to ride with. Note that some of this anxiety has lessened with the arrival of my girlfriend but it is in no way completely gone.

  5. I eat fried chicken and pizza with a fork and knife. I can't stand to get my hands dirty. If I make something that requires me putting my hands in something mushy - like hamburger meat - I make Kayla do it.

Wow! I was able to come up with five quirks. I'm sure there are plenty more - such as my love for public bathrooms - but I better not share them all or the people in the white coats might try to take me away. And if you've ever read my blogs before, you already know about the bathroom thing....

Now, let's see if I can come up with two more random, yet interesting, things about myself...

6. I am left handed but I bowl with my right hand.

7. I have never gone by my first name - seems to be a family tradition as my grandfather went by his middle name, my mother goes by her middle name, and my father too - and up until the sixth grade, I didn't go by my middle name either. ;)

  1. I loved this post...The fingernail and flossing thing makes me laugh out loud.

    I thought of you the other morning as Shannon stepped on "something" in the kitchen.....When he bent over to pick it up, he said, "Gross! It's somebody's toe nail!" ;)

    It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out who the toenail belonged to either (*whispering* Daniel, but you didn't hear that from me).;)

    Big hugs,


Don't be a stranger - please leave a comment. They make me smile :)
