Random facts

So it has been brought to my attention that I am a unusual person with weird quirks that not everybody knows about. So I have decided to start dropping in random facts about myself.

#1

My husband and I bought our house 7 years ago, but up until then, I have never lived in any one place for more than 3 years. Ever. Three years has always been my limit of sticking in one place. I had someone ask me once "Are your parents military or something?" To that I reply..."no, just flighty :)"


#2

I changed schools 9 times by my freshman year.
Read #1 and you will see why. I am really good at being the new kid. I hated it. It sucked. Add being an only child into the mix and you have a whole lot of lonely. Luckily my mom was her own one woman show, so I was never bored. Just a little lonely.

#3

I have never pumped my own gas. Ever. Not that I haven't driven through many other states, but I am always with somebody that knows how to do it and I just let them take charge. But in return, I am 33 years old and have no idea how to pump gas. I have lived in Oregon the entire time I have been driving and we aren't allowed to pump our own gas here (for those of you that are not from around these parts) so why learn now. Whenever I go into Washington to see my mom, I always make sure I have enough gas to get me there and back, either that or she takes me out and does it for me. She's such an enabler :)

Stay tuned....I have many....many more weird facts about me to shock and amaze. Because I just wasn't egotistical enough :)

In contrast, my parents are at the same house they bought 30 years ago.

First house, last house.

There are times when I think a more 'moving' household would be fun or allow room for new starts.

Grass is always greener, and all that.

FYI: I, as a fellow Oregon girl, have never pumped my own gas either. The one & only time I allowed myself to get low on gas in Washington state while alone, I had to ask a grumpy meth head to do it for me because I just couldn't figure it out. Just wanted you to know that you are not alone!

Who liknks to me? Ask me how....just kidding. Just click here.
