Tag Anyone ;)

Amanda tagged me for this interesting one :)

The Rules

1. Link the person who tagged you
2.  Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4.  Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers blogs letting them know they have been tagged.

Let's see.......

1. (Let's start with my craziest) I time myself when I unload the dishwasher and then I try to beat my time the next day. I am betting that wins for lamest housewife game ever.

2. I only like to fold/put away warm clothes from the dryer. If they aren't warm, I run them through a quick 'refresh' cycle. Cold clothes from the dryer don't feel as fresh. 

3. I love my husband's grandma like she was my own. She died a few years ago and I still look at her pictures and get teary. She was an incredible woman. I am looking at her picture right now--Grandma Mary, you are one in a trillion!

4. I am insane about saving electricity--I am always unplugging things not in use (toaster, coffee maker, cell phone charger, etc) and turning off lights which is odd if you consider point #2.

5. I avoid WalMart at all costs. We live next near one and I have not stepped foot in there. I call it a giant corporate monster.  Target on the other hand is a place you will find me at least twice a week (I am a walking contradiction!).

6. I like eating dinner with music,  lit candles and flowers--this does prove hard since Spanky has this great habit of crawling up on the table to take food off other's people's plates. You'd think the lit candles would discourage but no, they ENcourag climbing. And yes, I have two specific dinner playlists (vocal and instrumental). (Breakfast has its own playlist too!)

And now I am supposed to tag six people......
I'll steal an idea from Elaine and tag the first six people to post :)

How funny! I love hearing about other's quirks. I can't stand walmart either, ours is very dirty and it just grosses me out.

Thanks for sharing.

Ugh I hate WalMart here. I've heard some are really nice...not ours.

I also can only fold warm clothes. It drives Mr. Newlywed crazy.

Mandy said...

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog and put a link to it on mine! Please stop by and check mine (Adventures of a Millenniumj Mom) out!
Just keep in mind I'm in the process of getting a super cool. It won't look so generic for long!!
Also, do you have to formally tag me?:)

My kids know the cashiers at Target on a first name basis.

I LOVE #1! I am always trying to make a game out of cleaning. Like see if I can unload the entire dishwasher during a commercial. Or set the timer and see how much laundry I can get done in 15 minutes. It is probably lame, but I HATE cleaning soooo much - I'm trying anyway I can to liven it up!

anti-supermom said...

Funny, I give myself so much time to do these jobs and 'reward' myself if I make it in the 1 1/2 hours or so, for example.

Your game sounds more cool than mine :)

mah-meeee said...

P.S. HOW in the world can you allow Penn State fans on your blog? Gasp!

I'm always turning off lights too! But the cell phone charger, you just gave me a good a idea. Thanks! said...

I am so with you on the Target & Wally world views. UGH. Hate Wally. Gross.

Brian and Staci said...

Lisa you are tooooo funny! I can just see you setting the timer....and she's off....unloading the dishwasher! Hey, btw...thanks for your kind words on my spotlight day :) I really don't think anyone understands how totally serious I am when I say I'm so glad I found your blog!

If I did #1 I would SO be breakin' some dishes around here.

I am quite proud to say that as far as I know neither of my boys has ever been in a Wal-Mart. Let's keep it that way. : )

Thanks for the linky love dear!
