25 Random Things

I got double tagged to do this 25 Random Things meme on Facebook by both Cari and Marlys.

So here it goes:

1. I usually ignore most memes, chain letters, chain e-mails and the like unless I really like the person who sent it and/or I'm in the right mood.

2. I have a weird relationship with rules: I follow some with an obsessiveness and others I pretend don't apply to me (don't even think of changing the rules of Farkel or turning without using your blinker around me).

3. I started playing the guitar five years ago because everyone else in the family had musical instruments. I never intended to be in a band or write original music. I just wanted to learn to play Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi, so I could sing along.

4. I wear all black to work every day because I'm too lazy to figure out outfits that go together.

5. Two winters ago I had six black turtleneck sweaters that were exactly the same and I wore them every day to work for three months. It was awesome.

6. I love the scarf, purse and wallet I got for Christmas this year, but not as much as the Gibson Flying V Bill gave me.

7. The last New Years Eve show my band played, I screwed up the count down to midnight simply because I counted wrong ... outloud ... into the microphone.

8. I love to make fun of myself. But am trying to do it less, because it hurts my self-esteem.

9. I will pretty much do anything to make other people laugh. This gets me into trouble.

10. I didn't drink any alcohol for over four years.

11. I started again when my dad got sick.

12. I miss my dad so much, but I love having my mom with me. I feel selfish about that.

13. I wish my mom would live with us forever.

14. I've become obsessed with what my family eats and I bug them about it relentlessly.

15. If I wasn't me, I'd probably think I was annoying and talk about myself behind my back (especially when I'm hounding my family about food.)

16. I get crushes on things and people and will cyberstalk the object of my crush.

17. I'm obsessive about my skin and spend a lot of time and money trying to save it.

18. My life is very stressful right now and sometimes I just want to cry over it, but I don't.

19. Playing music with Laurena, Kelley and Scott is the best stress reliever there is.

20. I love my bandmates like they were family and hope we stay together forever.

21. Having my daughter was the one the two best decisions decisions I ever made.

22. Marrying Bill was the other.

23. I'm jealous of how kind and lovable Bill is.

24. I know that I don't deserve him.

25. I love my family more than I can ever show.

#16. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I feel weird about it at times, but I can't help myself.

And you deserve happiness and love. It's the people that think they're entitled that don't deserve it!

You guys are very kind. I'm working on accepting all the good things in my life and knowing I deserve them, but it's still hard.

Oh and Lady, thanks for admitting ot #16, I thought it was just me and all those 13 year old girls out there!
