Tagged..... twice.

Dee from Bubba Chick Tagged me for a little game. Here are the rules.
* Link the person who tagged you
* Mention the rules in your blog
* Tell about six unspectacular quirks of yours
* Tag a new set of six following bloggers by linking them
This is going to be hard! LOL!

1. I REALY HATE FOLDING CLOTHES! I know you all think that you hate it too, but I think I'm a whole new level. I trade out with my friend Kim and she comes and folds while I sew for her daughter. Really, that bad! I should wear a sign: Will sew for folded laundry.
2. I can't be ugly to telemarketers. I feel sorry for them, so I let them talk, then I have to say "no I'm sorry I wouldn't be interested". Then I feel bad again for saying no. I can't just hang up. I feel rude. Ben can shut them down in a heart beat, but I can't.

3. I'm hooked on Diet Sunkist. We only drink water at home so I don't get it unless we are out, so from the minute I leave my house I am trying to think of how I can get my hands on one LOL! If Ben knows that I've had a bad day he will bring one home with him. I love him for that.
4. I get embarrassed in front of a lot of people. I could never sing in the choir, I tried it once , but I felt sick all week just thinking about Sunday. After a couple of weeks I told the choir minister (Jokingly) that if I had to sing in the choir one more Sunday I would never go to church again. LOL! He let me off the hook. I get embarrassed when people (that I don't know well) give me compliments too. I turn blood red and I feel my face get hot. Once I get to know someone I'm not very shy at all. Crazy, huh?

5. I'm not good at math. At all. I'm one of those classic right brained people who can't remember numbers. I don't even know my own cell number. If it is not a number that I use every single day I loose it. I was the kid at the school office after Christmas break asking them too look up my locker code. Yeah, it's that bad. Sometimes to remember a friends number I have to get a phone and pretend to dial it so that it will come back to me. Hey don't laugh! It usually works. OK and here's the wost of them all.......I can't remember what year each of our children were born! I always have to count back when people ask me! .......I can't believe I just owned that......It felt good to let it out. LOL!
6. I can remember anything that is set to music, so I am constantly getting songs stuck in my head for days at a time that I have no idea where they came from! I may have heard it in a store and not even realized it, then for next week I'm singing 1 verse to some unknown song. IT DRIVES ME MAD when I can't figure out what song it is. Thank God for Google! Now I just type in the words that I do know and Google will tell me what I'm singing!!!!! It makes me feel so much better. It's kind of like when you can't remember someones name (you know how that can drive you crazy!) and when it finally hits you, you're so relieved. Yeah, like that.

Kristin at See Mommy Sew Tagged me too! In this game I had to answer a few questions.
What was I doing ten years ago? Begging a man that I didn't know at Alabama School for the Deaf to let me could come and work the entire Summer for free as a counselor at their camp. I thought I knew sign language when I got there because I had took it in school. NOT! Deaf people have slang just like hearing people do, you can't really learn it all out of a book. After being there for a few days I caught on, and when I left the kids were surprised when they found out that I could hear. LOL!
Five things on my to-do list for today?

1. Fold the mountain of clothes in my living room.

2. Mop my sticky hardwood floors.

3. Work on baby gifts.

4. Work on instructions for "Miss Madeline". I feel like I have hit a brick wall with this one!

5.Go to the post office.

Snacks I like Chips and salsa, cucumbers and salt, and WHITE CHOCOLATE!
Things I would do if I was a billionaire? We would buy a farm big enough for the entire family to live on! We could all live a mile or two apart. We have seriously talked about this for years. My Dad needs a landing strip and a hanger for his plane because he hates renting. Maybe it will happen one day!
Places I've lived: Alabama, It's beautiful here! I only wish we could have snow.

Six people I want to know more about
I am going to cheat, since I was tagged twice, and tag you! I know I'm totally taking the easy way out on this, but come on and play along!
All the pictures are from a set of tea towels I made my Mama for her birthday. She is 48, and loving it! Dad flew her to Gulf Shores for the day to do some shopping at her favorite places. They are like a couple of kids now with all of us gone! They just hop in Dad's plane and go anywhere they want. They have been known to fly to Gatlinburg to eat dinner at their favorite restaurant. They are too funny!
All of the embroidery designs will be available soon in the shop, I will keep you posted on that.

Glad to run across your blog. I love sewing and folding clothes is OK, but the crummy thing is putting them away..then I am reminded of the condition of the interiors of my drawers and reminded of all the clothes that are now 2 sizes too small (I will get back in them, I will,I willllll :o)
Tell your sister, B4 the next trip to Gulf Shores, ck my site for info and fun stuff to do..
Gulf Shores Pix & Stuff

PS--as for My favorite saying:
"She who dies with the most fabric wins!"

I met a woman in a fabric shop who taught me how to make skirted tables from cartons of folded fabric !! And I did it....

I can't believe I'm the same age as your mother.
I hope she is a young 48!
