I can't stand to have my fingernails touched. When Sam cuts them he must hold my finger tips on the sides or I cringe and squirm. One time I went for a manicure but cringed when they attempted to file my nails, I said "Just paint them and I will be fine with that".
I did that one first since I was talking about fingernails but I should have said this first:
- I hate Styrofoam, can't stand the feel, sound or ewww, it's getting me squirmy just typing this. Blake does not know this one yet, I told everyone that if he knows this he might drive me nuts with it, just like Seth tries to do but fortunately as soon as his mom tells him "Seth, put that away" he is an excellent listener. At church, or parties I always get a regular plate or cup, and I am willing to wash it too.
- I have to put lotion on my hands after I get all comfy and situated in bed for the night or I don't sleep well. I even wake up sometimes to apply more.
- The covers MUST be up to my neck and I have to lay on my LEFT side to fall asleep.
- which brings me to this: I have a sleep machine that I take everywhere I sleep it's a soft hum and it annoys the H E double toothpicks out of Jennifer! She told me I couldn't use it in Tampa at Thanksgiving and instructed to to take extra trazodone, the only reason she won was because I wanted my grand kids to SLEEP. Fortunately that was just 1 night in a hotel. In the condo our bedroom was on the opposite side of theirs.
- IF I forget it, I MUST turn on a radio but not on the "station" it has to be between stations or I will not fall asleep; I will be singing songs to myself for a very long time.
- In winter, I wear loooonnnng socks that go up to my knees, they're men's and they're white
- I can not sleep in pajama pants because the legs ride past my ankles and makes me uncomfy. Only if I am at somebody's house and cold I will wear my sweat pants but just till I get the bed warm.
- In summer it's important to me that my socks and shirt are the same color. RIGHT SHARYN? If I don't have the right sock color, I'll wear white socks but not the winter ones, (just in case you were wondering). I did that back in the 70's tho!
- I love shrimp and would eat it 6 days a week, I need to have burger of some sort once a week.
- Dr. Pepper is my favorite pop
- "SODA" is not in my vocabulary, it's POP!!!
- Absolutely no ice but if *I* insist...I only want 2 ice cubes, not three and if it's at a restaurant I'll order LIGHT ICE if I want any at all, and basically that's just too keep the straw down in the cup. Donna remembered this after years and years of no contact. I thought that was funny, we must have been out to eat too many times?
- I follow the sun around and open and close the blinds as I desire. Right now it's not 80 degrees out so I like the blinds open wide for all the sun to shine in.
- In the summer time when it is 80 and above I pride myself and brag about how cool I can keep my house w/o turning on the a/c. and definatley not the furnace. Sometimes we are wearing sweatshirts inside and it's 85 outside.
- Panda Bears are the cutest but that's not so weird and I am sure you already knew this if your a loyal friend or follower.
These are just some of the weird facts about me. Maybe I will post more as they come to me.
I'd like to know what other weird/interesting facts you come up with about me just send them in email and not here. (not sure if I want the world to know what your thinking on this subject) Now that you know all this about me do you still wanna be my friend?

Joel, my just turned 5 year old nephew (not blood, but we still I consider him our nephew) had been asking me to take he and Blake to this amazing fun inflatable play place. It's been several months since I took them and he's been wanting to go again.
Finally, after Blake's cold was gone, our vacation to California and Joel's annual ski trip to Utah we were able to go. Both boys loved it and *I* had just came down with some awful bug but I went to the doc the day before and was told "I was no more infectious than some of the people in Kroger" and given some potent Amoxicillin so I wasn't going to make these 2 guys wait any longer even if I did feel awful.
They had a great time and I was so glad they were able to manage all the obstacles of climbing and sliding with out me, last time Blake needed a bit of help climbing up the big slide and Joel was a little reluctant sliding down it by himself the first few times but this time was different....NO HELP NEEDED. Joel's hair was so funny you can see it best by clicking on the top picture.
After that we went to a McDonalds and the boys were so thrilled that we were going to one with a play area but unfortunatley there were absolutely no parking spots we had to settle on a "boring" one. Through out the day, Joel and I traveled 80 miles together, as we had more errands to tackle, fortunately he didn't catch my bug. Blake however might have, because he ended up with a fever 2 days later of 103.4

In preparation for our big day on Wednesday, Blake spent Tuesday night with us. Sam picked him up on his way home from work and dinner was ready when they got here. We were both thrilled to have him since he does not like to spend the night anywhere mommy isn't . This time he was as thrilled as we were. I think I can count on one hand how many times he has spent the night here w/o mommy. After bath, we had popcorn and watched some SPROUT T.V. and then grandps read the good night story, he called mommy and daddy to say goodnight and he fell asleep in no time. Good thing, cause I was not feeling well.
He brought a picture he colored to show us and took EVERY single thing out of his bag, he had his blanket, duck, teddy, clothes, toothbrush toothpaste, p.j's and the list goes on and on. He even brought a cookie for Joel in the morning.

He was reminded to not lift over 5 pounds, I've been taking his computer bag out f0r him every morning. I know he is not following orders because he carried it to the basement office and back upstairs, I gave him a small lecture (what else can I do). I took it to the scale and it weighted 13.5 pounds. I asked him if there was stuff he could leave at work and he said he'd leave some things there today. Then I told him not to fill his bag up with more.
Thanks for your calls, emails, and concern. Now if he just doesn't get a hernia with that computer bag.

REMEMBER HE IS 4 YEARS OLD, and his surgery was 10 days prior to this conversation, and he has seen grandpa to talk to himself about it but won't talk to Sam about it (don't know why)
B: so gramma, how is grandpa doing after his surgery? (doesn't he sound go grown up?)
M: He's doing alright
B: Can he do stuff?
M: Well yeah, Blake, he can do stuff
B: Like what can he do?
M: Ummm, he can put his socks and shoes on now
B: what else? gramma, tell me what he can do
M: He can drive, he can go to work
B: I know that because he is not home but what can he do
(by now I'm kinda getting annoyed because I don't know EXACTLY what Blake is looking for me to say, he's seen grandpa and he knows he can walk but what does this little 4 yo mind want to know)
M: he can brush his teeth, shower, eat meals, watch t.v., talk but he can't pick up Jayde (over 5#)
B: can he do the dishes
Me: yes, but it hurts to bend over to load the dishwasher
B: OK, gramma (and off he goes, I guess I finally answered all his questions and his lunch is over)
Ugghhhhh, Why didn't he just ask about the dishes in the first place!??
Kids can be so funny and that's one thing I love about them.
