i've been tagged!

I'm so excited again! AVTcoach has tagged me with the 7 quirky things meme. I'm honoured and happy to play along. the rules are pretty simple- i have to list 7 quirky things about myself, and then "tag" 7 others. interestingly, i was trying to follow this meme back to where it started- in the beginning of September with Jenny B, and if my math is correct, and if the bloggers have kept it going, there are well over 287 million bloggers "tagged"!!!!! soon we'll run out of people to play! sort of like a giant, (but fun) pyramid scheme!

i shared with dave and N that i was "tagged" and explained what it was. while his reactoin was not the same as OCTAMOM'S family, he still had his 2 cents to put in: "oh brother. i could write that one." so I'll shuffle his suggestions into my list, I'll just leave you guessing as to which ones were his!

#1- i always put my right shoe or sock on first. I've tried the other way, but usually fall over.

#2- for 10 years- through raising (and gestating) the first 4 children, i had an outhouse, a wringer washer and i cooked on a wood stove.

#3- dust doesn't bother me, but clutter does

#4- i run the gas tank down to E alot.

#5- i keep all our teaspoons on the table in a little pewter cup that was my mother's

#6- i fill my coffee cup (and most other cups) all the way to the tippy-tippy top

#7- i really love socks- especially striped ones

there! i did it. and it was harder than i thought! i guess our perception of ourselves is not quite what others see! so now i need to "tag" 7 of my fellow bloggers, and i choose:

Beth from A Mom's Life

these are some of my favorite bloggers, so stop by and see what kinds of quirky things they're willing to share with us all!

Hey Jennifer - Love your blog. I want to hear more about the four babies, the wood stove, and THE OUTHOUSE!!! Whoa!

Seriously I have always been impressed with people that can live simply - me - well I have a tendency to weakness and shakiness which makes it impossible for me. Ha ha!

Have a good day!

LOL, thanks for thinking of me!

It is a little scary once you get the quirky ball rolling how many things seem to 'show' up!! ;o) Love your list!

Great to see you over at my place today--and very much appreciated your comments and open heart--what a fine line, huh?

thanks for the tag! turns out, i'm very quirky. i could have gone on and on...

i, too, want to hear more about the wood stove cooking, etc.!

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

Wow! An outhouse! Wow! (Did I say that already??)

I'll see if I can complete this tag but I'm not sure when I'll be able to do it. I recently did a 6 random things meme and it feels like everything I write is pretty random and quirky!

This was a great list and I'm so glad you played along! That is amazing you were able to figure out how many have played. I was wondering that myself! I look forward to reading your future posts!

Hey Jennifer, I finally did it! Check out my quirkiness at my site. And the only thing that I share in your list is running the car down to E alot. Like every week!
