I have been tagged...thanks Jess

Ok I am supposed to write 7 random things about me....my mind is blank

1. When I'm driving down the road or sitting in one place for a long time, I count things, such as windows. I like to see how fast I can count so I usually am always doing math in my head. Its real weird I know but I guess it keeps me from getting car sick. Its real tough when I go to the valley because I count the windows on the houses but thats when all the multiplications comes in so I try and do it real fast.

2. Another weird thing I do is practice typing in my head. If someone says something...that I should probably listen to, I picture my hands on a key board and type out what they say and then count how many times I used the fingers on the left hand and the fingers on the right hand. (My thumb doesn't count).

3. I like things to be organized. Right now my house is a mess and its drives me nuts but theres not much we can do...but the piles are organized....What can ya do right? All the clothes in my closet go in order by color, white, pink, purple, red, dark red, brown, black, blue. Same with Cody's. :D

4. I like to drive fast but I have gotten caught SEVERAL times so I've slowed down a bit. Guess it runs in the family because we all go fast! Ain't that right Dad!

5. I love babies/little kids. I think they are so sweet and so fun to be around. I love when they make me laugh and they don't even know why. I can feel of their little spirits and I know what a blessing they are on this earth.

6. (I'm running out of things to say) I am really accident prone. I probably say ouch at least 14 times a day. It all started when I was about 3 years old when I was "accidently" left outside in the truck while it was snowing. It was a miscommunication between some family members and I was dead asleep so I had no idea. Well they left me and didn't realize it till the next morning when my sister said I never came to bed. Thanks Tara for speaking up sooner. :D My parents ran outside in the snow and there I was in the cab of the truck still asleep...half frozen. I think my dad probably picked me up. They thawed me out in the bathtub and I remember when I was trying to walk I kept tripping over my big toes and ever since then its been down hill. Taralee later broke my arm when we were playing. It was hard to unwrap my Christmas presents. Then 7th Grade I broke my hand during softball, got that cast off and a few weeks later I slid down the stairs at my house and broke my hand AGAIN! 8th Grade I fractured my hand ice skating. Then in the summer I broke my arm (worst break I had yet) on the four wheeler. Then I think I did something else, I just can't remember. I fell off of a exercise ball and hurt my neck real bad. Then fell off of a bunk bead and landed flat on my face on the cement floor. That hurt. Freshman year of college, the day before I moved home I had a partial tear to my lcl. That was painful. And since I've been married I've sliced my finger, tore a muscle and just get hurt. It's getting better as I get older because I've learned to sit back and watch and let everyone else have fun!

7. I wish I didn't have to work so I could stay home and make things. I like to make quilts its just hard to afford the material. I like making Christmas decorations...anything crafty really its just so dang expensive. I just tell myself, someday we'll be able to afford me staying home. I just wish that "someday" was today!

I tag, Mom, Tara, and seeing as how I don't have many friends...who ever looks at this.

Hey Kristen, I looked at your myspace yesterday and I never thought you were serious about putting, "I ride in the sidecar and we have a good time." I was laughin so hard at work! I would watch it but I don't have speakers on my computer at work and no internet at home! Good ole Thatcher!
