4 Things Tag

Mr. Brian tagged me - I think he's trying to keep me thinking over here - this may be a challenging one!!!

4 things about me:
*I am a "smell" freak - I can smell EVERYTHING - my stomach is easily turned by smells too! It's not always a blessing!!!!
*I love lists, calendars, my OUTLOOK - LOVE it all - it reaks of organization - I LOVE IT!!!
*I am a horrible perfectionist - it is amazing that I have not driven myself crazy by this point in my life. I must say, I think it's more of a curse than a blessing!
*If I lose something, I will turn the house upside down until I find it - I can not STAND not knowing where lost things are!!! Crazy, isn't it?!?!?

4 habits I have
:
*I have to put lotion on my feet every night - I've done it since junior high - I always thought my husband would appreciate my soft feet - I don't even think Joe has noticed!!!!
*I CAN NOT go to bed until everything in my whole house is picked up and put where it should be - I am not exaggerating here - if we pull in at 10 pm - I still unpack ALL the suitcases before I go to bed myself.
*I am a hair twirler - don't worry - just my own!!!
*I count the dashed lines on the road - STOP LAUGHING - it's a horrible thing - I have to force myself to look away and stop counting!!!

4 things I discovered within the last 4 years:
*AWESOME things are "made in China"!!!
*Sometimes God has to teach me things OVER and OVER and OVER - and I still may not get it!!
*Like Mr. Brian so wonderfully said, "Sometimes change is good."
*I would have really "missed out" if I'd never had a daughter - there are just some fun things I never would have gotten to experience!!!

4 things I want to try or do in the next 4 years:
*Go to China one more time to complete our family - however, at this rate - it may be longer than that!!!
*No Joe - I DO NOT WANT to run in a marathon, but I do need to walk more - my exercise routine STINKS!!!
*Teach 3 boys to drive - that is amazing to me - can it really be?!?!? I will see if I can handle teaching them - that may be Joe's job!!
*Catch up on my photo albums - OK, I listed it, it's a pipe dream, but at least I'd like to try!!

Want to play along??? Just let me know - I want to read your answers too!!! (It makes me feel like I'm not as strange as I think I am!!!)

Now, I did NOT know all that!
You are a list making, organized perfectionist with 3 (going on 4) little ones in your home???
I am impressed! My mind WANTS everything in order, but I just lack follow-through.

Oh, and I'm with ya on the smell thing -- my gag reflex goes off ALL THE TIME!

nikki said...

Oh my gosh!!!!! I mean 4 (going on 5) little ones!!!!!
I can't even keep up with all of your kids...

You are amazing, Beck.
Sorry about that error...it's late and I should REALLY be sleeping.

Mr.Brian said...

YOUNG lady.

kris said...

Love this list, great way to get to know you a little bit.

Amy said...

A perfectionist could never live in my crazy world. My kids would kill you right away!!

I am an obsessive "counter" too--dashes on the road, window panes, tiles, etc. I didn't even know it was a "real thing" but I have since found out that lots of people do this. And I agree that perfectionism is a curse and my house is always cleaned up at night too!!! We are very much alike--but we already knew that!

Jonni & John said...

We are so much alike, it is scary! I totally know what you mean about smells, I can smell everything and the perectionism thing...don't get me started (lol).

It's so much fun to find out so much about each other through these fun memes. Like Nikki said "you are a list making,organized perfectionist with 3 (going on 4) little ones in your home" AMAZING!!! Those lucky kids, they have one great mama. :)

Hugs,
Jonni

Tracy said...

Very interesting! I think I need to come to my house and find our wedding album. I haven't seen it since we moved here last October. I just know it's in one of the many unpacked boxes in the basement!

Sue said...

I'm glad you only twirl your own hair!! :)
Could you come clean up my house before you go to bed too?

Cute list!

Great answers! I love the chat between you and Mr. Brian.

Dannye said...

thanks for sharing...that one really is a great one, it helps to get to know each other...

LaLa said...

I have an overactive nose myself. Like Nikki said, can't believe you can be so organized with your household..I can't keep mine straight with just one little one.

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
