Seven random things about me...

which are not very hard to come up with...

considering I am so...

very...

random...

all. the. time.

Here you go, Emily!

1. I love love love cool, cloudy, rainy days. They don't make me depressed, not in the least. They usually boost my mood.

2. I am almost always the chauffeur in our family. My husband can drive, but his driving makes me really nervous, and since he doesn't enjoy my comments or tendency to backseat-drive when he is behind the wheel, he's learned not to fight that battle. (Oh marriage, the longer we enjoy it, the sooner we learn to pick our battles, thank goodness for that. Myself included.) And I LOVE to drive. I usually have no problem pushing through the 12-hour annual drive to Minnesota. And one of the highlights of my 32 years on this earth was driving that big beast of an RV.

3. I studied German from middle school through college. I didn't pick German -- I was supposed to take Japanese like my older brother did, but the Japanese teacher didn't show, and the school stuck our class with the German teacher for a semester. Being the over-achiever that I was, I stuck with it because I didn't want that semester to go to waste and have to start all over (oh, the drama) with another language. It's not the most beautiful language, but at least a lot of it has stuck with me and my comprehension level is still relatively high. I'm looking forward to testing it out when I visit my in-laws that are relocating to Europe. Other than that, it has come in no use to me whatsoever, especially now that I am the parent of a Hispanic child. Why in the world didn't I study Spanish like everyone else?

4. My hair is not naturally auburn. But it's the color I should have been born with. Trust me. Haha. (Some of you already knew that.)

5. I rinse my dishes completely before I load them in the dishwasher. And it might drive me a teensy bit crazy when people load the dishwasher differently than I do.

6. My brother can ride a unicycle, but after years and years and years of trying, I still can't go more than a couple of pedals before crashing.

7. I can turn a styrofoam cup inside out.

If you just read this without rolling your eyes or falling asleep, consider yourself tagged.

YAY! I also like to completely rinse my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher and Damon always tells me it a waste. Why do dishwashers cause such drama! Too bad we weren't in Japanese together although it is also not the most beautiful language. :)

Loving your random things! My daughter is totally obsessed about the way she loads the dishwasher and does not allow anyone else to do it at her house...or she ends up doing it again! Guess we all have our ways! Missed your vintage photo today. Check out my blog next week...I'm having a give away! Gootentag!

Love your randoms. Several of which I completely identify with - several others I think you are completely coo coo...but loved them none-the-less. Have a good weekend.

Ja, wohl!
