My Confessions

Our daughter, Maria, has started occasionally doing a post on her Confessions.  It may not be what you are thinking, but it is fun to read.  In fact, take a second right now to click on the link above and read what she has to say.  

Today, Maria invited others to try confessing.  I've heard confessing is good for the soul so I decided to give it a go as well.

Actually, I'm remembering that I've done a post on Confessions of a Pastor's Wife.  You are welcome to click and read it as well.  It's not the same as Maria's Confessions post, though.  Her's have bullet points!  I love, love bullet points!

So, following the lead from Little Things are Big, here is my list for today:

  • I, too, have some double jointed toes.  I am also pedi-dexterous and I'm very proud to have passed those genetics on.  What this means is I often pick things up with my toes.  It is quite handy, really.  I hook my big toes together when relaxing.  This creeps Mike out, making it all the more satisfying.
  • I don't sing in the shower either.  I do sing and hum a lot of other times, though, often without realizing it.  I used to try to stop myself but then I asked, "Why?"  I hum at work all the time.
  • As a kid I once noticed a lady who had a tic that caused her to twitch her nose frequently (upward, not side to side like on Bewitched).  Apparently I was fascinated by it and tried it out a few times.  THEN, it became a bit of an uncontrollable habit for me!  Who knew that nose-twitching was habit-forming?  I am now cured but don't ask me to show you because I'm afraid I could backslide.
  • I love interesting teeth, but with the common use of braces now days, they are rare.  I have straight teeth, never needed braces.  I always admired people who had teeth with a bit of an overlap or maybe eye teeth that protruded just enough to give their lips an interesting shape.  Today's teeth bore me.
  • I love eating hotdogs cold, straight from the package.
  • I always wanted freckles but with my olive complexion I found it was not to be... until NOW!  I am developing freckles on my hands and I'm so happy!  (If you want to be my friend you will not say mean words like liver spots or age spots.)
  • I always wanted to be a redhead.  Again, it wasn't for me.  I was really proud, though, when Mike and I produced a redheaded child.
  • I am too proud of the fact that I can crochet like the wind.
  • Sometimes I crochet to avoid doing things I don't want to do, like cleaning the bathroom.
OK, That's 10 confessions!  I am exhausted but I think I do feel a bit better for having told you these things.  Want to try it?   If you are a blogger, try a Confessions post.  It would be nice if you linked it back to Maria's blog, Little Things are Big.  Hey, let's make it a blog hop!  Click below where it says Click Here to Enter and you can join the hop.

If you are not a blogger, you most certainly are invited to air out your soul by "commenting" your confessions right here and now.

Haha, you must love Megan's teeth then! We can't yet afford braces, but she insists she doesn't want them anyway. Will her teeth ever be straight? Or will she remain slightly vampire-ish looking? Tune in sometime in the future to find out! ;o)

I tried, really tried, to follow in the footsteps of many of my family members. But, alas, I seriously do not like cold hotdogs!

I HAD to twitch my nose when I read that post. Hope it doesn't start a habit!

Michelle said...

I didn't seem to get the talented double-jointed toes from the genetic pool, but I did used to hook my big toes together when sitting around barefoot!

My kids complained so much about my habit of humming or singing while I worked around the house that I stopped doing it. Makes routine work more boring, though. Now that I live alone, I find that the habit is gradually coming back, and I'm glad. Yes, I am.

I did the same thing, Maria! LOL! Am thinking I'll have to ask your mom to show me at Christmas just how it's done . . . . :)

Oh, Susan! This was a hoot... I can so relate to crocheting (though I knit) to avoid things I don't want to do! LOL! blessings ~ tanna

Yes, in fact, I do love her teeth.
