five on friday

Five things you may or may not know about me:

1 - I don't like anyone around when I brush my teeth.

2 - I like to play video games. A current favorite is The Simpsons Tapped Out. I also love Mario games, especially Paper Mario, and Sims games.

3 - I'm a daydreamer. I will daydream while I'm alone in my office, and then when I walk out in the hallway, I have to watch myself to make sure I'm not going to start making funny expressions because I'm still lost in a daydream.

4 - I like my desk at work to be organized and as spotless as possible. My space at home can be very disorganized and cluttered, and I'm ok with it. Until one day it will drive me completely crazy and I have to spend a few days getting everything put back where it goes.

5 - I love the Michael Kohrs brand. I only own two items in that brand, which I bought with gift cards, but I keep eyeing a few other things. If I had the money, I would own a lot more of that brand.

digging: being home. i took friday off work, and it was so nice!

not digging: my hands and fingers hurting from doing too much.

drinking: ice water - always!

eating: all kinds of unhealthy things. i've been on such a candy kick lately. i need to stop it!

watching: emily owens. md. i watched it and loved it when it was on, and was bummed went it went off the air. i downloaded all the episodes from itunes, and now i'm watching it again on netflix. but it always makes me mad when i come to the end, because i want more. i've also been watching veronica mars and i love lucy.

reading: finished always will by melanie jacobson last week, and then i dove into spotlight by traci hunter abramson. i have loved everything i've read from both those authors. oh and i just realized i read lord fenton's folly by josi kilpack in between the other two. i liked that, too.

listening: to many songs the past couple days while organizing my crafty things. also to harry potter and the order of the phoenix while at work.

feeling: annoyed at a particular person and at how she is treating others.

weather: slightly cold and supposed to be rainy, but i haven't seen any since last night. i love the rain, but i've been loving the warm days. i guess fall has to come sometime.

wanting: to get more done each day, both fun and not-so-fun things.

needing: to go to the doctor because i'm so bad at keeping up with that. i get really nervous about going, even if i don't think anything is wrong.

wishing: i could turn back time to april or may. except i wouldn't want my mom to have to go through her hip surgery again. time passes way too fast.

thinking: about christmas, even though i'm really not excited or ready for it to be time to think about it.

enjoying: good books, good shows, planning a couple fun things with a good friend.

loving: my four cute 4-year-olds that i get to spend time with each sunday. they wear me out and drive me crazy sometimes, but i love them and i'm grateful to be a part of their lives for a little bit each week.
