Quirks? Who Me?

The RULES
1. Link the person who tagged you...Aunt Julie
2. Post these rules.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them

Okay, you asked for them...

1. I HATE dirty floors. Hair, food, grass...you name it, if it is on the floor I hate it! I vacuum and sweep at least once a day. I hate to see hair on the bathroom floor collecting with dust in the corners...uggh...it makes me shudder. Honestly, if my floors are vacuumed, I feel like I have a relatively clean house...just don't check for dust...

2. I like to have a clean, tidy house, but I'm awful at putting things away. I don't mean straightening up toys and such, but once I finish washing all my dishes and let them dry, I am hard pressed to put them in the cupboards. It is SUCH an effort. I am fabulous at working hard and getting my laundry done, but the clothes that air-dry on the clothes rack...hmmm...let's just say I am working on it. I was good this week and got them all put up the next day, but last week, well...they were "drying" for a good 4 days. I know! If I go through so much effort to clean everything, why can't I just expend a little more and make everything even tidier?...I don't know...just thinking about it makes me tired...

3. I love to pick peeling sunburned skin. Truly! I love the feeling of pulling it. Kind of gross, but at least I'm not obsessed with pus like my husband.

4. I won't put my children in character clothes. I don 't like them. I think they're tacky. I might buy their wardrobes at a thrift store, but I won't stoop so low as to put them in tacky Tigger outfits. Harsh, huh! Sorry for those of you who do, I don't judge you, I just won't. Really, I don't think anything of it on others...in fact Steph has a really cute tees for her boys she bought from the Disney store while here. I just think uggh...when I dress them on my boys. So, if I am ever graced with a daughter, you will not be seeing her in Ariel and Belle shirts while I am on duty! While I am at it, I hate my boys without undershirts. I think they look like they have scrawny necks and I don't like to see collar bones on boys...I'm awful, I know. Don't tell my babies I think they have scrawny necks...

5. I don't like people helping me. I love to help people, but I hate it returned. This is something I'm working on, 'cause everyone NEEDS help including me, but it is SO hard to accept. I don't like my mom doing my dishes, I don't like people buying me things (except gifts, I LOVE gifts!) and heaven forbid someone touches my laundry!!!! I really need to overcome this one, because it is good for my boys to see both sides of service.

6. Food makes me HAPPY! It does! Hot Krispy Kreme doughnuts, a large bag of PB M&Ms, Panera Bread, Lowland boil with spicy shrimp, potatoes, crawfish and sausage, crispy hot french fries and a fabulous slab of med-rare steak. My mouth is watering and just thinking of my favorite things brings a smile to my mugg. Just call me Creme Puff!

Okay, I tag Jenny, Sandy, Andrea, Coty, Haylee and Jill

I too hate putting things away after they're clean (dishes, laundry, etc.). I won't dress my kids in character clothes either. It just looks cheap, somehow, on my kids...gee...you think we're sisters. However, I do agree that you definitely need to let people help you more-like me! Love ya and I can't wait to see you and your little beasties soon.

Nate, Julie, Cicily & Chase said...

Lib, I cannot agree with you more about the character clothes! Yuck, yuck, and yuck! My kids have asked for them a few times and that is just one thing I will never, ever succumb to. Never. And the putting away of laundry and dishes.....guilty! Luckily I have Cicily to assign that to. She's very helpful, and needs to learn this stuff anyway, right?

Steph said...

Oh, you are too funny. I loved reading about your quirks...although none of them were a huge surprise. ;) It was fun to read them, anyway. Hmmm, I gotta think we are sisters 'cause I could nearly copy and paste your quirks for mine. They are too funny and remind me of the sister that I adore.
Oh, and on another note...I feel I must defend myself. I too hate character shirts, pants, especially...ewwww...character shoes. But, I have to admit I am a pushover and have, on occasion, bought a character item or two. I know, I know--yuck--but I try to pair them with a clean face, cute short/pants and done hair. I am pushover, what can I say??

Andrea said...

Liberty, love your quirks! I will reply in at least the next few days. I've got to think on this. Not that I don't have any (I have a lot) it's just that I try hard not to focus on them. LOL. OH, and I so agree on the character thing. I especially don't like the character shoes!

Andrea said...

Liberty, I meant to add that who doesn't LOVE food. YUMMY! LOL.
OH, you have never done or said anything to me to make me have to tell you a lie. :)

Miriam said...

Hi Liberty! So fun to read about you and see your family!

Lively Luckinbills said...

Yeah for vacuuming!! Love it! You are so sweet to take time to comment on my blog. It is a fun passtime, and it is even better to get those comments. It makes me feel more connected to those moms I admire like you and Steph.

I too wrestle with the laundry. I can't even bear the thought of putting all that freshly folded laundry away...I already worked sooo hard to fold it, I mean do I seriously have to go and find a place for it all? ugh, an all day long process for me (okay sometimes two day, but who's asking anyway...)
