* * * * *

Since several people have tagged me, I guess I will comply.

The rules:
A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts / habits / confessions about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Some of these won't be any secret to anyone, but I will try to tell some that are interesting...

1. I know it is boring to copy, but I have to say... the one that Kristi and Lisa wrote was a good one... I also feel like I am being a good mom (think of a motherly figure from the fifties) when I bake a goodie of some sort. But I guess the funny / interesting thing about my situation is that Aaron tries not to eat most of the things I bake (he tries to be good), so he knows if I am baking something, it means I will most likely end up eating all of it by myself (except for Aaron Jr.)... so I try to come up with lame excuses of why I NEED to bake something. For example, taking some with me visiting teaching, or taking some across the street to a neighbor for no reason at all, or making it for our primary class. Things like that... so, that is #1.

2. I love to play games. I am competitive when I play games, but even if I never win a certain game, I still love to play the game just for the fun of playing and interacting with people. I love games so much, that I would rather play a game than do almost anything else when it is suggested that we do something fun. I LOVE to play games.

3. Even though I love the feeling I have after I work out, for some reason, I just can't get into working out very often. Why is it that the feeling I have afterwards should keep me doing it everyday, but it doesn't? Anyone have any advice?

4. I take a bath almost every single night before bed. Some people think that is strange, but once I put Aaron Jr. to bed, it relaxes me and it is my chance to read my scriptures and anything else that I might be wanting to read. Sometimes I end up staying in there way too long because I am enthralled in whatever I am reading. A ridiculous part is that, sometimes I read by candlelight in the bath. I don't know why it is so relaxing, but I love it.

5. Even though I am getting too old (30) to think this is even possible anymore... I still can't help but hold on to my life's dream of having a house full of children by the time I am done having kids (most likely 40)... even though it is proven to me month after month that it isn't up to me when it will happen again or how many I will have. Okay, gotta move on before I cry...

6. On a lighter note... I am clumsy. I trip over things, stub at least one toe per day, bump my hipbone on doorframes quite often, hit my head a lot either bending down towards something or standing up from something, I hit my elbows and knees a lot on random stuff, I burn myself when I cook, I turn my ankle sometimes, smash my fingers in drawers as I close them, these are just a few random things that happen to me on a regular basis. Aaron teases me because I say or usually yell the word 'OUCH' at least a few times a day. I honestly find new bruises on myself pretty much every day. Another thing I do that Aaron can't seem to understand is that I almost fall down the stairs a couple times a week... I just lose my footing or else my socks make the carpet slippery. Anyhow... I am clumsy.

Okay, now I am tagging anyone and everyone who read this and haven't done it yet. You know who you are!

interesting stuff. you sound like bella when you describe your clumsiness. maybe you are always too much in a hurry or something? reading by candlelight in the tub sounds wonderful actually. thanks for playing tag with us.

Thanks for playing. It's fun to read interesting tidbits about each other. I agree with the baking. Nothing better than your kids coming home to a house that smells like cookies and actually having a great treat for them.
love you.

I'm clumsy like that too! I always have random bruises that I can't remember where they came from. I will get to my list head is too full of other things right now!

I am a clumsy gal too. I am also a sloppy gal. At the end of the day I have multiple stains on my shirt. I know your fondness for games. It is hard to find people like you that are willing to play games as much as I want to.
