So I may be a tad bit OCD

So I very rarely write anything about me, but the past couple of weeks with sick kids including a 4 day stay at the hospital with Livie has left me a lot of time to think. I know a dangerous past time, good thing it doesn't happen very often. Seeing as I have partaken in this dangerous past time I decided to post a few rarities about myself that a lot of people may not know.

1. I can NOT sleep if there are any of my Kitchen cupboard doors left the extreme that if Gary gets up in the night to get something and I didn't hear him close the door I have to get out of bed no matter how tired I am and check.

2. Keeping things on the back of toilets gross me out...and why people have open shelves behind there toilets holding toothbrushes is something i can not even fathom. This may come from living in a Divey apartment where that was the only shelf and having to replace toothbrushes once a week cause they feel onto/into the toilet.

3. I walk around my house all day making sure that toilet seats are down...cause once again the toilet thing grosses me out.

4. I sleep better if my room is slightly untidy. Don't know why but I do.

5. I like to change my hair color according to seasons

6. Garys ugly cowboy boots that he wears all the time (they use to be chore ones from his dads house) drive me crazy...don't get me wrong if he wants to wear cowboy boots well good on him....but do they have to be those ones?

7. I will be/am the wife that has bleach accidents to rid ugly clothes out of my husbands closet

8. I mock people who wear their socks pulled up all the way when they are not meant to be worn that way...and yet poor daughter wore her socks like that to church today and i couldn't say anything cause daddy had gotten 2 of the babies ready for church

9. I only wear ankle socks any other kind of socks make my feet and ankles feel claustrophobic

10. I can't sleep in both feet are covered by blankets making sleeping in a sleeping bag awful when we camp

11. I need at least 4 pillows at night to sleep well

12. I love lists...i feel accomplished with lists

So i know this is a very random post...and now i have let you into a select few oddities that make up me... stay tuned you never know what i may disclose next

Happy Birthday Taylor

Lets Just start with that Taylor totally picked the picture for this post (its kinda old...June/09) Today Taylor is I can't believe that she is that old already. We tried doing her birthday party on the weekend but due to crappy weather and her not feeling super good it didn't really happen. Though she got to see some of her favorite people as well as decided that Jessa and Jaime are lots of fun ..."those silly girls in the van".

So to celebrate Taylors 4th birthday blog style here are 4 stories/antics about her

1. If it didn't happen today or tomorrow it happened "lasterday". Everything is "lasterday" even if it was a year ago. That being said she remembers EVERYTHING. Don't tell this girl anything you don't intend on following up on.

2. Last year when the Harris' got their trampoline and Taylor would go over there to play I would ask her what she did and she always told me they went "tramping" on the "jumpoline". Loved it. Now she is excited to have our own Jumpoline

3. All she talks about lately is how next year she gets to go to school. It makes me said that it has come that fast and she will be gone 2 days a week next year. She loves doing workbooks and loves to tell stories and play pretend. The new thing in this house is that she role plays all the time, I love watching her play she is always super creative.

4. Most of all she is a good big sister. Though a little rough from time to time. She does love the babies. She is a good friend and loves to play with them. We love her tons and she is such a character...

Happy Birthday Taylor
