Are you QUIRKY too?


I was just tagged by my friend Char.

Here are the rules: Link the person who tagged you.
List 6 quirks of yours.
Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same.
  1. Every time I scrapbook, I wear the same black sweater. It must hold all of my creativity since I make the best pages when I wear it.
  2. At the rink, I always drink coffee mixed with hot chocolate. The coffee is burnt. The hot chocolate is too sweet. Mixed together it’s drinkable, sometimes even good!
  3. I cannot leave the house without reading material or something to “do” while I wait for the kids or if there is potential for “down time”.
  4. I am always at least 5 to 10 minutes early for everything. I cannot stand the idea of being late. If I’m late there was a serious reason for the delay but I make sure to call someone to let them know I'm on my way.
  5. I cannot let the gas tank go past ½ full. Drives me crazy, I start to get panicky and have to find the closest gas station.
  6. If I find an author I like, I buy every book they’ve written and read all of them in order of their publication dates.
Bonus: because I cannot stop! I am the only one who can fold laundry in our house. If the kids take stuff out of the dryer they have to put it on the table for me to fold or I’ll unfold and re-fold what they’ve done for me.

My turn to tag:

Hee Hee...she didn't tag me! Yeah, it must mean either I'm too quirky to keep it to a short list or not quirky enough? Yep, there is no right answer to this sort of comment.

As for being late: even my kids have noticed "Mom, we're not really late, we're Martha late!"
(sure could use that blushing smilie right now).

Are you feeling better?

Lee said...

Hey Martha, feeling WAY better ... and I'm sure you were tagged on Cyn's blog. Did you want to be tagged twice? What happens then? Do you have to come up with 12 quirks? Do you have 12 :)

Martha said...

Yeah, I left your blog and went over to see I was tagged by Cyn! Sadly, I could come up with 12 quirks but I don't know if I want to out myself that badly...

Glad to hear you are on the mend.
And the entry above? OMG: love it, and plan to case it...seems like it would be perfect as a title page for an annual family album!
