So here is how you know you might have a blogging problem. I had a bad headache and so I ended up falling asleep at 7 pm during what was supposed to be a “I should lay down for a second and see if this headache will go away” moment. I woke up briefly at midnight and felt I MUST check my email quickly before falling back asleep. I then noticed I had been tagged for a meme and couldn’t stop my brain from thinking about “7 Random Things.” So now I am awake at 1 am and I thought I just need to write this stupid thing so I can get back to sleep. This is sooo sad.
So here is the deal Chanin over at What’s With All the Pink tagged me for this meme. I have actually done this before, but there are always random facts to be shared so I will do it again. Here are the rules:
1) Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog
2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4) Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Chanin stated over at her blog that she didn’t know my name. It is Jill. My kids have code names on the blog cause we are weird about the internet, but I am not creative enough to think of one for myself. When I was in high school I always wanted my name to be Jade. I think I thought it sounded mysterious and edgy. Which is so the opposite of what I was in high school
I didn’t know a ton of Jill’s when I was growing up, but there was 3 in my sorority pledge class of 30. There are now 2 in my Mom’s Club out of 20 and 3 in my MOPS group. I am one step away from becoming a Jenny.
My parents met in 8th grade and aside from 1 minor breakup have been together ever since. My dad was a jock, my mom-homecoming queen. They are still very happily married with their 2 kids, 1 girl and 1 boy. Yes, my life is like a black and white 50’s TV show. Kind of makes you want to puke a little, but I know I am extremely blessed.
I don’t maintain baby books or scrap books for either of my children. Lily has one that is mildly filled out, Hannah’s has her name and date of birth in it. My mom (who meticulously recorded every event in my first 3 years of life) finds this appalling, but I am just setting the bar really low so my 3rd and 4th kids (if they decide to make an appearance) can’t ever complain that the first kid got all that stuff and they didn’t.
Apparently when I was little (per my meticulously detailed baby book) I made up the word “booglio” and used to say it to anyone and everyone. No one knew what it meant. Lily appears to have done the same with the word “poogywaggy.”
I drive a 1995 Subaru Legacy station wagon. It is the poor man’s Outback. I truly like my car, but long for the day we have a car where the driver and passenger can control their own heat (dream big people) so my hubby will stop turning off the heat cause his feet are sweaty while mine are slowly turning into blocks of ice.
I firmly and strongly believe that the heat setting in a car should always be only at the feet, while the air conditioning should always be only at the face. It drives me crazy when my hubby tries to do this any other way. Fascinating.
So there you have it. I have no idea who hasn’t done this meme, but if you want to, consider yourself tagged and let me know in the comments you have done so so I can come check out your randomness.
