Who turned off the AC?....and tagged

I finished up the last of my clomid pills on Saturday. Let's just say, even with the estrogen suppositories, the hot flashes have been frequent. I've woken more times than I care to, sticky and clammy of sweat, feeling the need to rip every shred of clothing from my body. After the moment passes, I feel back to my old self, and slowly dread the time until the next big one. The mood swings are pretty bad too! But, I can deal with those better than the hot flashes! K would rather I have the hot flashes, I'm sure, since he's referred to me as "evil" the past few days. It's the hormones people!!!

I've been tagged by Kelly over at the Quest for Baby Agosti. The rules are simple: Link to the person who tagged you, list the rules in your blog, Share six non-important quirks about yourself, Tag at least 3 people, leave those you tagged a comment so they can play too.

1. When I was 6, I once tried to make income selling saltines in our driveway. You know, some kids sell lemonade or cupcakes. Yeah, well, I loved crackers (and still do) and I couldn't see why anyone wouldn't want to stop in and buy some. I can still remember one truck teasing me that they were going to pull in. The couple was older and they were laughing hysterically. I was so mad at the time, but now I get it. I am pleased to know that I could have brought so much humor to those folks on this day.

2. I once ran up our family's phone bill by calling the Papa Smurf hot line! I loved the Smurfs cartoon! I just wanted to hear Papa Smurf tell me a story over the phone. I didn't know it was $2.99/minute? I think I ran up the bill $150 and I was grounded from ever calling in anywhere like that, ever again.

3. I am notorious to never closing things. I leave drawers, doors, bags, etc. open. Actually, I half heartily push them close, but I never close drawers completely! My husband says that I subconsciously know that he is coming behind me to shut them all. I honestly, don't even realize I am doing it!

4. Like #3, I almost always never zip my pants. My friends say it's because I button first, but I always seem to forget to zip my pants! Does anyone see a pattern here?

5. I love to take naps on Sunday's. Sometimes, I think that's what gets me through my weeks. K and I go to church, eat lunch, and nap until time to go back to church. I just love this time, and I feel so refreshed and relaxed when I wake up.

6. I once set my bed on fire by playing with matches UNDER the bed. I had finally figured out how to strike a lighter (and I was practicing!). Fortunately, my dad was able to drag the mattress outside before it caused any severe damage to our house!

My parents use to tell me, "When you grow up, I hope you have 10 kids just like yourself!" Awe, the irony in those words. I would love to have 10 kids, but from my own experience, I know I must: block all pay-calls from our land line, hide all lighters or matches, keep a vast supply of saltines, and get the drawer/door closing under control (I don't know if K could handle two or more of me).

I tag Sadie and Tyson, Jen, and Rebecca (if she feels up to it :).

I'm with K on the drawer/door thing. It drives me nuts and Mr. W does it all the time. So do both of my bosses at work. I'm getting a little antsy just thinking about it. But of course that just the OCD in me. :-)

Okay the matches thing under the mattress.......not funny then, but very funny now! I like to take naps on Sundays too - don't do it very often, but when I do, it's so nice!

We have the same exact routine on Sundays at my house. Church, lunch, nap, church. We are Wesleyan and call it the Wesleyan hour. :)

You sound like you were quite the creative little child. ;) Thanks for sharing!

Oh your Papa Smurf adventure really made me laugh! How are you feeling now that you are a few days away from the last of the Clomid? I never felt many physical symptoms, but Brian assures me that I had emotional symptoms with plenty to spare. Hang in there!
