Alright, I'm supposed to tell about 6 quirks of mine (What quirks??) This is going to involve some thinking. Once I get going maybe I'll have trouble stopping and then I'll have issues. . .just kidding around. Let's see. . .
#1 - When I chew gum, I snap it. I hope it doesn't annoy anyone. (I know some of my brothers and sisters have issues with loud chewers of any sort - I don't think I chew the gum obnoxiously, I just play with it.) Most of the time I don't even realize I'm doing it. No bubble blowing, just snapping.
#2 - I love flip flops! I wear them all the time - I can wear them all year round down here in Texas. I love to wear other shoes too, but I hate shopping for anything for myself with the kids in tow, which is pretty much always, so my shoe collection is pretty pathetic right now. But flip flops are easy and I love them!
#3 - I am very much a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl, but my jeans have to be plenty long. I don't mind the bottoms getting all ragged so long as they are plenty long. I can't wear cropped jeans no matter how trendy, b/c I just feel like I'm wearing high-waters. When I sit down I like my jeans to still reach to my ankles at least.
#4 - I get anxious about phone calls. I don't know why, I just do. I'm terrible at calling people. I'll happily email or text, but for some reason I get nervous to call people. I'm afraid I'll interrupt or bother them. I realize this is silly (right??) but it's the way I feel. So if a long time has gone since I called, don't think I'm upset with you or forgot about you. I'm just afraid to call you.
#5 - I feel naked without my rings on. I wear my wedding ring on one hand and a birthstone ring of one of my children on the other. If my getting ready for the day routine gets out of whack (which it does sometimes with kids just absolutely needing you right at that moment, or fighting kids) I sometime forget to put them on. I usually don't realize they're not on until I'm out doing something and can't get to them. My fingers feel very naked without them. It's not a showy thing, it's a sentimental thing.
#6 - When I'm pregnant I LOVE ice cream. When I'm not, I can take it or leave it. It's not very tempting to me. But when I'm pregnant, man it's good stuff!
Hope you've enjoyed reading about some of my craziness, or er . . .quirks.

Congrats on the new baby on the way!!!!! Hoooray for you - maybe sickness is on its way out! I'm betting girl. Just because there's a huge wave of boys due right now.
-funny thing about the wedding rings...after being pregnant, I could never quite get comfortable in my rings again. I've gone without them now for 4+ years, and occasionally, I'll try to put them back on - it appears my fingers are rejecting them :) I told Paul -- maybe a tattoo would do the trick. heheheh.

How funny... #5 would be my quark. So I guess we just have to email and text each other :)

Congrats on being pregnant! We are so excited for you! I hope you start feeling better soon. How is everything else going in SA? Are the kids excited about the new baby?
