11 Things you Didn’t Know…

August 20, 2014



All right we have been friends for a loooooong time now.  Years and years in fact. I think it’s time for you to learn about me outside of my personal struggles  and spiritual life…    How about the everyday stuff. It’s raining outside… so come on over  here and into my studio.  No heavy lifting today.  Here is a list of just a few things you didn’t know about me.. lol.. I am sure we will be closer after this…

1.)  If I had only one food to take to an island… I would take a potato.  I just freaking love potatoes.  Pretty much any way you slice it (haha) I like them.  When I was a poor as dirt single mom… I would buy a bag of potatoes and some frozen peas… and I ate them happily for dinner many nights in  row.  My oldest son… he hates them..I think there may be a connection. And oh my heavens (!!!) potato donuts make me stupid smile even typing them… potato donuts with a side of french fries – DONE. LOVE.

2.)I listen to  Huey Lewis and the News…. a lot.  I mean probably more than anyone else you know, even your friends from the 80’s.  I mean it brings an immediate smile to my face.  As in I am listening to it now… and my kids pretty much know the lyrics.  I mean it’s Hip to Be Square…. ya know it’s all about The Power of Love.

3.) Salt Addiction.  It’s true, don’t doubt me.  I have salt from alllllll over the world.  I have it in every color it comes in.  I have it from the tops of mountains and the depths of the seas. I have books on it and lamps made out if it… we own a salt inhaler … and if that isn’t enough… we now have a hot salt room. See??!!… you thought “salt addiction my foot”… but now you are shaking your head and calling an addiction specialist.

4.) As a child I never wanted to get married… I remember answering with, “I will have kids but I will never  ever get married.”  Considering everything I had seen…men seemed awful and marriage seemed like a way for awful men to be taken care of because they couldn’t handle life on their own.  And truth… had my marriage not been semi-arranged I don’t know if I would have ever gotten married.  It was just never on my list of things to do…suffice it to say I would design Barbie a great dream home… but Ken …hmm… I don’t know where the heck he was.

5.) I am missing the gene that  all women have… I hate buying shoes. H A T E.  If I find a pair of shoes I like… I will wear it an embarrassing amount (by female standards).  Of all the fashions that come back around when will wearing my farm boots be all the rage… because that would be really great.

6.)Pairing nicely with #5… I can not stand dirty feet in my bed.  Wash your feet.  Guh.  It’s gross. I can’t sleep like that.

now about here is when I couldn’t think of anything else, and like I said earlier, no heavy lifting… so I choose to phone some friends…. and here is what they said after I censored them and screened through all the embarrassing things…

7.) “She will not ride in the passenger seat.” ~N

8.)”You and your husBen have never shared a bathroom.” ~S

9.)”If someone gives you a bad haircut you feel compelled to go back and teach them how to do it better because you are always trying to empower people to be the best of their giftings and you don’t stop …Oh and random strangers always talk to you about their boobs and personal sex lives.” ~L

10.)”It’s pretty weird that you have broken all your toes” ~J

11.)”As a kid you had chicken pox for the 2nd  time at Disney World and your grandmother thought they were chigger bites and she told you to hold an aspirin on your head to help your headache because she didn’t have any children’s medicine.”~E


So there ya go… I guess that sums up everything.. No rock left unturned. Good Day and Good Night.

    Okay, now I am fascinated by the ‘semi arranged marriage” . I always wanted kids but have a very short attention span with men so I have kids but have never been married.

      Well the quick version is… I did know who my husBen was before I married him, as in he wasn’t a stranger to me. But it was arranged as I was in a total different place in life and my family contacted him and arranged the marriage. I have never been a big “marriage” person…so it wasn’t a life goal. I was initially unaware of the arrangement.We were married 6 weeks after the original day my family arranged for him to marry me.
      Strange but true.

    Thanks for sharing all this info about you, but it just makes me have more questions!!! And, I thought I was a salt-a-holic, but I now have a goal to aspire to.

    I love this post! Just a few things… I have no idea what a potato donut is – is that sweet or savoury? I also have no idea what a salt inhaler is?!
    I am totally with you on buying shoes. I hate it too. Once I have found a pair of shoes that I love, I wear them to death, and then just buy the same ones again. The weather has started to turn here in England and it’s getting to cold for sandals, so I am facing that dilemma of needing warm feet but having no appropriate footwear, and no desire to go shopping!! I’m also with you on number 6 – dirty feet are just gross. Sometimes I send my husband to the shower to clean his feet before bed if he hasn’t cleaned them thoroughly enough after his evening shower!! And number 8, how on earth is that possible that you’ve never shared a bathroom with your husBen? Does that mean you have separate bathrooms, or just that you’ve never been in the bathroom at the same time?! (We only have 1 bathroom, so I can’t quite figure out the logistics of this…!!)

      a potato donut is sweet and wonderful.
      the salt inhaler was/is for my sons asthma.
      I do the same thing to my husband!!!!
      my husBen has always had his own bathroom… even our first little apartment had 2 bathrooms…weird (and lucky!) but true.
      that being said we have NEVER been in the bathroom at the same time…save, having been in labor.
