#1: I bite my nails so I won't pull out my eyebrows. I still pull them out a little, but biting my nails helps to avoid the pulling. I will probably be an old lady that had to paint on eyebrows.
#2: I am a night owl. I could take a nap everyday around 3 o'clock. But if I stay up past 10 then I am usually good to go for a few hours and actually prefer to get things done in the quiet of night. I'm not sure if this is because I know things will stay clean for awhile since the kids are in bed, or if it stems from always staying up late as a kid. But this is difficult to do with 4 kids that wake up early.
#3: I have to find the best deals. I think the trait is inherited from my Dad. I shop around when purchasing just about anything and have to make sure I get the best deal. This becomes very annoying to people at times because it can take me forever to finally decide to make a purchase, but I have saved soo much $ by finding deals. (i.e. free tree, $16 phone service, $15/month cell phone service).
#4: I am very indecisive. This is linked to #3 I am sure. I take FOREVER to decide on things. For me life would just be easier if there were only 1 or 2 choices. I don't want to purchase something unless I know I will like it in 2 years still. Because I pretty much assume I will still have it in the same place for the next long while. BUT I am indecisive on almost all decisions like where to go out to eat, or what to eat on a menu, or even what to wear. However, I am NOT picky so I am happy for someone else to just make the decision for me.
#5: I really do love to argue. I don't want to get into any screaming matches, but I am pretty sure I am usually right about things and so I will let you know. I don't usually give into this though as it can cause unwanted confrontations with people. Maybe I should have been a lawyer.
#6: If a song has clapping in it then I will probably love it. You know that double clap like in so many 50's tunes?! There is just something about that beat that makes me smile :) Yeah , I know this is a really weird one, but I also was a crazy Elvis Presley fan growing up. Even had Elvis stuff all over my room. How I got into him I'm not sure because it wasn't like he was on the radio.
If you have gotten to the end of this and are still reading then I am tagging - Nathan, Alana, Mom, Alison, & Katie. So get on your blogs and tell me 6 of your unspectacular quirks!

It's another 1st here. Luke had his 1st day of preschool. He is sooo ready and was so excited to go this morning. He had Ethen fix his hair in his favorite do (mohawk style) and made sure he had his special school bag. He was lucky enough to be the snack person on the 1st day so he loved being able to have a load of snacks to take in his bag. On the way to drop him off I asked Luke if he wanted me to take him into class or just drop him off at the door. Part of me was hoping he would say to take him in, but this boy wants to be a big kid like his brother and sister and so he wanted to be dropped off at the door. No problems. He just hopped right out and went down the hallway without even looking back at me. On the way home he did say it was a long time at school and that he was tired. This means it is perfect for him and is keeping him busy and entertained! Yay for Luke starting preschool
