List for Louise

I’m pretty sure a lifetime has passed since I was officially tagged by Louise. Sorry about that. The thing is, I can’t just share any old thing for my tagging post. I have to ponder and write and re-write. But enough is enough. So here, you go, Louise. 6 things about me.

1. I married my high school sweetheart.

Yep. We got married after college. Pretty crazy right? Even crazier if you know me. I’m pretty strong-willed and independent. In fact, my family tried to talk him out of it. Not because I’m their precious little girl for whom no one is good enough. Nope. Not because we were pretty young and needed to live life more. Nothing like that. It was more like a “Are you crazy? Do you know what you’re getting yourself into? Well, then…good luck” sort of talk. Yep! But here we are, still married and I can say that I love him even more now!

2. I hate driving with the windows down.

I just can’t stand it. It hurts my ears. Plus I don’t like the wind in my face and hair. Just horrible. If we’re going really slowly, I can tolerate it…but I still don’t like it! I also don’t like water in my face. I use a washcloth to wash my face. Splashing water on my face is not something I can do. As you can imagine, this means I’m not the best swimmer.

3. I don’t like chocolate all that much.

That’s right. You’re beginning to see the crazy that is me! It’s not that I hate it. I can eat it, and sometimes I even think it’s good. Given the choice, however, I’ll almost certainly pick something fruity over chocolaty.

4. My goal in life is to hire a maid.

Pretty silly, isn’t it? I just hate cleaning. I like to have a clean house, but I hate doing it. Some people tell me it’s therapeutic to clean? NO WAY! Just a pain in the tushy. (My therapy would be sewing.) I don’t know if I want a full time maid….just someone to mop my floors and clean the bathrooms on occasion. So there you go, buy fabric from me so I can hire a maid. 🙂 (and just FYI, it’s not my only goal, just one of them!)

5. I’m oddly good at chemistry.

Several professors that tried to convert me to a chem major in college. I had no trouble with organic, which seems to kill most people. Yep, I got an A – before the curve. In fact, in most of my classes, the professor would throw out my grade before figuring the curve. It’s not that I boast above average intelligence in all areas. Chemistry just comes easily to me. (Biology is a different story…so it’s not that I’m good at all sciences.) Yep, so I’m crazy and a dork. Fun, huh?

6. I get sea sick.

I tried a cruise one time. Big mistake….even on a huge cruise liner, I still was sick the whole time. For one of our anniversaries, hubby and I went to San Diego. We rented sea kayaks. Over all, it was awesome! We were right next to dolphins playing in our waves. We saw all sorts of sea life. But, I threw up right there in the ocean. The instructor on our tour assured me that I was not the only one that has done this. Hopefully the fish enjoyed whatever I had for breakfast.

So Louise, I hope you enjoy this! Finally.

    Fun to read. I’m with you on #4 but total opposite on # 3 🙂
    Wonder how you can work chemistry into sewing/fabric business?
    Love you,

    Hey Melanie, Worth the wait! What an interesting list. I just got tagged again and after the last time – I am struggling for interesting items again LOL. So, how useful has this chemistry skill been for you? What an odd talent – it is so difficult! I bet you have the right cleaning products every time – even if you don’t like it… (What is to like I ask??!)
