Quirks

The Rules:-Link the Person who Tagged you-Mention rules on your blog-Tell about 6 quirks of yours-Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same-Leave a comment to let them know. Pay attention, as your name could be at the bottom of this post!!!

I've been tagged by my wonderful Sister in Law....Michelle. This is hard for me...I have the hardest time knowing what my own quirks are...so I asked my kids and got two contributions, I'll have to come up with the others on my own.

1- (Contributed by Zack). When I laugh hard there is always the risk that I may pee my pants. I usually have to stop what I'm doing...and stand with my legs crossed. Now this may have something to do with the six children I've borne....but it's funny to know that this was a problem for me even before my kids....Once before Aaron and I were married we went through a haunted house, he was laughing so hard and made me laugh so hard that my pants were completely wet by the time we got out of that stupid haunted house!! I was so embarrassed!! And many already know the story of Aaron and I at the yogurt shop....

2- (Contributed by Josh). I'm a computer "hog". Yes, it's true...I love to check my email. When I log the kids on the computer they all know that I have to check my email first and that could take a while sometimes. I have to write to Rebekah (we email..everyday at least once, more like 4 or more times!) We have Windows Vista now (it has AWESOME parental controls) and they don't have to have me log them on anymore...maybe I won't be the computer hog anymore!

3-I love Avon's bubble bath...I mean just love it..it has so many bubbles and you don't have to use that much to get all those bubbles! My favorite "flavor" was honey...but they discontinued it...which makes me so sad...but I also love peach and I just ordered some green apple. I, personally don't take many baths but I love to bathe my little ones in those bubbles...they smell so good when I get them out of the tub, I could just eat them up!

4-I can not stand confrontation and do anything and everything to avoid it!! I would never, ever, ever want to hurt anyone's feelings...I avoid that like the plague!! I have to say that there are some exceptions to this rule now that I've aged a bit...I can't stand bad customer service and if I feel that I've been on the receiving end of this.....I will voice my opinion, a little too strongly at times.

5-I love details!! When I was younger I had the best memory and would remember all the details of anything that happened to me. I don't know if age or motherhood has affected this...but I find that I don't remember things like I used to...I miss that! I remember I had a friend, Kate, who would never remember any details when she'd tell me a story about something that happened to her and I would feel so frustrated....I wanted to know all the details!! Aaron lacks in this department too....He'll come home and tell me so and so had their baby...I'll ask "how much did it weigh? He'll say "I don't know"...I'll ask "what's it's name?" He'll say, "I don't know". It's just frustrating!!! I NEED TO KNOW!!

6-I have a very bad habit of laughing at very inappropriate moments. I think this occurs when I'm feeling uncomfortable....like during an argument with Aaron or when my kids are upset or scared. I once took Matthew on the ride, Space Mountain, at Disneyland and he was so scared that he was doing that screaming when the sound can barely come out and I was laughing sooooo hard that I was crying and I couldn't even talk...I just kept patting him. When we were little and my sister would get in trouble I would run to my room and laugh into my pillow.....how awful I feel about that now!!

Okay...I made it through that and it was actually kind of fun. I didn't think I could think of quirks but now I could probably come up with a bunch more!! I'm tagging 6 friends, now it's your turn...Michelle W., Julie, Amanda, Marni, Jody, and Jacque

Fun! I've learned some new things about you!

I have never heard you laugh at innapropriate times, ever. You are always very sensitive to other's feelings, which I admire a lot. I have to say though, that I have a difficult time not laughing at innapropriate times too. Sometimes it is from being uncomfortable, other times it is because I saw something that amused me.

I think that one of your quirks that I LOVE is that you can't resist teasing your own children! (I'm thinking about the chineese lady phone call incident.)

What a hoot!

I LOVE and miss your laugh Kim. And if you'll notice - LOTS of women have to cross their legs when they laugh.

Laughing at innapropriate times? Is there such a thing as an innapropriate time? I'll laugh any ol' time, but I might pee my pants! Looks like we're in the same boat sometimes.

Fun things to get to know you better!

We have windows vista, too, but I haven't figured out all of the parental controls yet. How did you figure them out/ where did you find the info? We downloaded another parental control that we are using, but like most do, it has some holes, so I'm thinking it would be good to use both! Since I'm not computer savvy, (I'm still proud that I have figured out how to do basic blogging) any help you can give would be appreciated! Thanks!
