I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by my step-sister, Charis, to share seven random things about myself. Hmm... This will be a toughie for me. I started to attempt the 100 random things post a few weeks ago when my friend Brooke did it, but gave up because I had a hard time thinking of even one thing to share! But, here goes...

1) When I was in the 4th grade, I got my hair cut really short and everybody thought I looked like a boy. I was made fun of endlessly at school (mostly by my friend Greta's husband, Bob :)) and am still traumatized by the experience to this day. This is why you'll probably never, ever see me with hair above my shoulders again.

2) When I'm holding J.C.'s hand, I have an obsession with touching the deepest part of the crevices between his fingers (weird, I know). He finds it hilarious to close his fingers so that I can't reach them. It's not.

3) Before we had Eli, J.C. and I actually tossed around the idea of not having children (or waiting a long time before having them). Then, SURPRISE, we found out we were pregnant. I'm glad God had different ideas than we had, although we do wish we could have Eli and my paycheck (with me still being able to stay at home). Oh well...

4) Now, we're already thinking about planning for a second child in the near'ish future. Giddy-up!

5) I grew up an Auburn fan and actually went to Auburn my freshman year of college before transferring to Alabama (and of course changed my allegiance). Roll Tide! (Sorry Dad...)

6) I hesitate to post this on such a public forum, but I'm hurting for material so here goes... I'm not voting in the upcoming election. I have my reasons and I've heard your quite passionate reasons for why this makes me a horrible American/parent/Christian, etc. Please spare me. I shall one day return to the land of voters, but not this time around. I feel very fortunate to have the right to vote and the right to not exercise the privilege. That's all I wish to say on this topic.

7) I can't think of anything else!

In lieu of tagging seven other people to post this (most of my blogger friends have already posted things like this fairly recently), I invite anyone who wishes to share random facts about themselves in my comments!

First I just want to say you aren't horrible for not voting, I actually thought about not voting instead of voting for what I percieve as the lesser of 2 evils, but my since of civic duty and personal belief that one really is just too evil leads to vote, but I would never think poorly of someone not voting. They are exercising their right just like me.

I don't think I can come up with 7 things but here are a few:

1. I can't stand to have dirty hands. Even if I just think they are dirty I will wash them. When I am cooking particularly baking I will wash my hands like 20 times. The worst is when I am getting chicken ready to fry.

2. I love to write, I used to write short stories when I actually had free time. I never let people read them for fear they wouldn't like them but I love to write them. I have this dream that one day I am going to write a series of children's books that teach little kids history which is my favorite thing.

3. I am terrible at keeping my room clean. I have tried and I want to be neat organized but somehow I always fail. That is why the door to my room stays closed. It was easier when I was younger and shared a room with my sister, who is neat. She would just clean it.

4. I am most comfortable when I can sit with one leg curled under me. I hate that my office desk chair has arms that do not allow me to do this.

I think that is all I can think of for now. I know there are tons but it is hard to think of random things about me.

I don't blame you for not voting. At this point you'd just be picking between the lessor of 2 evils. I'm not even sure if I'm going to vote, and I do love that I get to vote, but I'm sure if I will this year or not.
