I've been Tagged....

I'VE BEEN TAGGED BY....TA DA....... THE NICE ONE OVER AT Even The Nice Ones.....

Let me see...7 random facts ...or would you prefer weird? Either's gonna be 7 bits of info about me whether you like it or not.
1. I miss my husband when he is gone. Truly miss him. BUT...when he comes home. I prefer to sleep in my bed alone. He gets in and cocoons himself with my covers. When we first met. I would get up 2 or 3 times a night to stand up at the head of the bed and straighten out the covers so that I could sleep comfortably. I can't sleep when my blankets are messed up. When I sleep in the bed covers are perfect all through the night. Neurotic much? Maybe. Definitely happy though.

2. I am EXACTLY 4 years older than my husband. I rub it in his face constantly that SENIORITY RULES!!! I call him "Little Man" or "Youngsta". When we are shopping somewhere together and he sees something he likes, I ask him "You want mamma to buy that for you, baby?" He gets embarrassed but I love it!

3. I'm allergic to shellfish. Shrimp and Crab legs specifically. I didn't always used to be but now I am. At least when I wasn't...I tore it up! I ate the crap out of it. Red Lobster's endless bucket of shrimp or crab legs was my favorite. Then I had more kids and I down graded to the all you can eat shrimp and crab legs from the Chinese buffets. THEN...I down graded again to ...nothing. Poor Dom...he recently started sharing my allergies to shellfish.

4. I'm a super homebody. I don't really like to go anywhere unless I HAVE to. My favorite past time is staying home and catching up on my DVR'd shows (preferably in bed). Oh wait, NO...I'm lying. GROUP NAP is my favorite past time. Snatching up all the kids from their hiding places (because once I say "GROUP NAP" the kids scatter) and gathering them to take a nap with me is the best. It eliminates me worrying about what they are doing while I'm sleeping.

Of course, I have sneaky kids and they are good at slithering off the bed without waking me. When I wake up, they are gone.

5. I love the rain. I love to sit in the rain. I love to watch movies and sleep in the rain. Nuff said about that.

6. I love to watch the UFC with Angel. We order the pay per view fights (which really isn't worth it unless we have more people to chip in and help pay for it but whatever...we still watch it together). Another something Angel and I have in common.
This last one is true and I know Dom is going to have some questions for me but I am prepared. Maybe it will answer a lot of questions about my paranoia to strangers and my over protectiveness of my children.
7. When I was younger (around 7 or 8 yrs old) I took a ride with a pedophile. Of course I didn't know that at the time but now that I am older, thinking's true. My mom had left us at a house (I'm not sure how well she knew these people) so that she could go either to bingo or to a night club. There was a little girl there around my age (I don't even remember her name). Her job was to ride with this man on some kind of route (I think he delivered papers of some sort). I went with them one time and while we were cruising, he said something to her and then he unzipped his pants and she put her hand on his (you know what). I was sitting in the backseat and I looked over the seat and saw what she was doing. He asked me if I wanted to do it too cause we get ice cream if we do. I didn't. I felt uncomfortable because I knew it was wrong. Of course we had the whole conversation about not telling anyone and I would still get ice cream.
I got ice cream and I never told anyone.
Now I know how easily children can be influenced and manipulated. I don't know whatever happened to that girl and to this day...I never told anyone.
I'm supposed to tag 7 people but instead of listing them...anyone who is following me...if you have the chance...I would like to know a little more about you.
