6 Quirks

Virginia tagged me and I am really really trying to update this more often so here I am.. 6 strange things about me? (Limiting it to just 6 is difficult)

- I often tilt my head to the right when typing for long periods of time. I don't know why, or what it does for me, I just notice out of the blue that my head is sideways.

- I am obsessed with pictures of strangers weddings. I stalk the internet and wedding photography blogs because I am fascinated with those moments and how happy everyone always looks. It so rarely lasts anymore, but those pictures show so much happiness and hope.

- I have only fallen asleep without reading first less than 20 times in the last 8 years. I cannot sleep without reading something first, even on vacations I have brought my PocketPC (that I read books in eBook format on) just so that I can read myself to sleep. I have read, literally, thousands of books since we first purchased our PocketPC's, and read on average two or three books a week depending on how long they are and how tired I am and how early I go to bed.

- I am the project killer. I start projects, and they die a slow death. Knitting, cross stitch, sewing, you name it, I probably have at least two projects in progress somewhere that will probably never be finished.

- I cook primarily with an iron skillet. I have a serious relationship with my iron skillet/s (I have a set of three graduated sizes) and I take cleaning and seasoning them very seriously. I only wash them in hot water and dry them on the burner and oil them with a drop of oil and a paper towel and let it reseason every time I use it. A good iron skillet is a commitment.

- I currently live with my husband's ex-wife. And yes, I am aware how strange that is!

Spent most of the day talking to Kathy and Priscilla and comparing stories about Chantal and hearing how she has been playing both sides of the family off each other. I don't know how she thought that was going to work when we are all now living in one big house but a lot of lies were revealed, a lot of Chantal backstabbing, nothing new. Chantal is going to be a not very happy person in the future, she's going to be called out on a lot of things she's said and done.

It was an otherwise quiet day. Savino has two more teeth. I am still tired and need a long soak in the bath tub and some sort of chocolate.

Still no word from the state. Tim is flipping out on me, and convinced he has not gotten the job. I keep telling him it will be OK, it's not a big deal either way.

Have I said lately how much I love my husband? He cares so much about whether I am happy or feeling OK. He kisses me often and asks me what's wrong if I don't look happy. He is proud of me doing what I need to do to get through the day. I love him so much. Kathy said to me today that she can tell how much he is in love with me, and that is reassuring to hear after 10 years of togetherness.

My life is crazy, but I feel a little more validated tonight about how I have been feeling and that I am not the only one frustrated with Chantal. Everyone else feels the same way. It is nice to know that I am not the bad guy.

It's not all drama though, here are 4 beautiful edits that I did today:
