8 Things

I chose my lucky number when I was 8 years old.  Any guesses as to what that number was?  Yup.  8.  (I know I'm not supposed to start a sentence with '8' I'm supposed to write 'Eight'.  '8.' is also not a proper sentence.  I don't care.)

Besides it being my age, I'm not sure why I picked 8.  Or why I even felt the need to pick a lucky number.  But pick it I did, and to this day I consider it my lucky number.

(Kind of funny for someone who doesn't really believe in luck and has never really had anything 'lucky' happen to her.  Seriously, I never win anything.)

So in honor of my lucky number 8 (and because I feel like blogging, but don't have a single solitary idea in this blank head of mine) I'm going to tell you 8 random, possibly little-known, most likely strange, things about me.  Wow, what a sentence.
  1. I count stairs.  Going up, going down, doesn't matter.  I've counted stairs for as long as I can remember!  I also have to start going up or down with my left foot.  
  2. When I close the blinds at night, I have to turn them the 'wrong' way...you know, the opposite way that most people turn them.  I feel like it makes it darker, which is a plus if you want to sleep in.  Oh wait, I don't do that anymore...
  3. I have to have the TV on to fall asleep.  Unfortunately, John needs the TV off to fall asleep.  You can see the dilemma this could cause.  I guess it's a good thing we rarely go to bed at the same time!
  4. I do the dishes every morning.  I leave them after dinner, because I'm busy playing with JJ, giving him a tubby, feeding him and getting him to bed.  I don't mind waking up to a sink-full...it gives me a sense of accomplishment first thing in the morning.  :)
  5. Even though I love music, sometimes I turn the radio off while I'm driving.  There are times when I just need some quiet!
  6. Frozen Hershey bars are one of my favorite snacks.  I just ate 2 of them.
  7. Sometimes I leave clothes in the dryer for days.  If there's something in there I need, I just fluff them up and pull it out.
  8. I make the coffee every night before bed.  Every.  Night.  Sometimes JJ and I get up at the same time, and it's hard to make coffee with one hand!

I love frozen Hershey bars too. Not sure what it is about having them frozen that makes them taste so good. :)

LOVE this! I count stairs a lot too.

Kristi, they're so addicting! I could almost eat a whole 6-pack! Christine, I wonder if Mom does! :)

I count stairs too. Not all the time, but quite a bit. I figured it had to be from working with children and always counting. The dishes thing would drive me crazy. I'll stay up to do them when I can barely keep my eyes open, cuz I hate that mess in the morning.
