Thirteen weird things about Mary, TT #10

Thirteen weird things about Mary

OK, I am sure there are more than 13... if you can think of one, let me know! :OP

1. I have almost died 3 times in my life. I was close to drowning twice, and went into shock after surgery. The third time was really weird, I could hear everything going on (the doctor and nurses working on me) but couldn't open my eyes. I felt very peaceful and I thought to myself, "Oh well, I guess I am going to die."

2. I have to have something sweet- usually chocolate- after eating spicy food.

3. It never fails, I always get a little depressed at the beginning of spring. Knowing why helps, I finally figured it out about 9 years ago.

4. I love mac and cheese, but most of the time with hot dogs cut up in it. This really grosses my husband out. :O)

5.I obsess about new things and get burned out on it quickly because of this. I am trying not to do this with blogging.

6. I obsess about things in another way, I have OCD. I am not the kind that can't function normally, but I do tend to obsess until I take care of whatever it is. It could be something silly like fixing a crooked picture.

7. I have to make lists, otherwise I will forget something I want to do. If I forget my grocery list, I am a mess and usually can't remember half of it.

8. I can wiggle my ears.

9. I can pick things up with my toes.

10. I have had 7 surgeries in my 37 years of life.

11. I have a horrible need to be accepted, and it really bothers me when I know someone is mad at me or doesn't like me. I have known this about myself for a long time, and I am working on this. I now do things for people because I care about them, not because it will make them like me.

12. I wouldn't relive the first 18 years of my life if you paid me all the money in the world. Seriously.

13. This is something that I think is weird yet wonderful: When we first started dating, I told my husband every bad thing about me and my past (my parents, ect). You would think that after knowing in my heart after 2 short weeks that John was the one, that I wouldn't do something that would have him running scared in the opposite direction... I just wanted to know if he was going to stick around, and didn't want to invest myself if he wasn't. He didn't blink an eye- even after I told him that if we ever got married and I found out that he hurt our kids, I would kill him. :O) 18 years later, here we are. Shoot, the fact that he stayed with me after he got to experience all the drama for himself is a miracle. He must really love me.

Lists like these are interesting to read! We are all weird and that's what makes us unique!

I love your new blog template!

Michelle said...

#4, have you tried it with Ketchup? Ketchup and hotdogs . . .yummy!

MysteriousLady said...

One of my son's can wiggle his ears. I don't know where he got it from. None of my other children can. I can't. His father can't.

Bond said...

I can understand #4 - I like it that way also
I can do #9
Other then that...sheesh you are normal! LOL
Found you through the TT site...I did my first TT today.
Please come sit on THE COUCH anytime

I love that you whipped out the bad right away with your husband--sort of testing his testicular fortitude. Did he have the guts to stay with you? If you're like me (and it sounds like you are), it is good to know that from the start!

Hot dogs in Mac & Cheese? Did you live at our house when you were growing up? We ate that all the time!!

Great list! Happy TT!

Domestic Goddess said...

sounds like you got a great guy!

I don't do hotdogs!

kailani said...

That just goes to show you how much John loves you. He sounds like such a wonderful guy.

I'm like that with the OCD. If I'm watching TV and notice something that needs to be picked-up or straightened out, I'll keep thinking about it till it drives me crazy!

Love this list. It's actually so close to being me, it's scary. I'm 38 and have had 8 surgeries myself. Nine if you count oral surgery on my wisdom teeth. I went to the Dr. yesterday and had to enumerate all of them to him...I think he thinks I'm a hypocondriac. I'm not..just clumsy and sicky a lot. :/

Samantha said...

I love your layout! It's so cute! Hot dogs and mac and cheese is a huge thing at our house, with my 4 year old twins. We love it :) I can PINCH with my toes hehe my husband hates that ;) Checking you out from Kailani's Great Bloggers T13. Mines up too, if you wanna check it out.

Twyla said...

Great TT...and I love your template. :-)

alisonwonderland said...

aren't we all a little weird in our own ways? great list!

DKRaymer said...

No more surgeries for you, my dear, and stay away from water! You wanna bath? Use Wet Wipes. We can't have you keeling over on us now, can we? I love your new snowman theme; first thing I did was scroll to the bottom to make sure you kept the cute kitten pics! Love your list - my hubby does that whole spicy sweet thing, too. Drives me nuts. His whole family is like that! You have a marvelous weekend, and I hope you don't get anymore weird WT stalker calls!:)

Norma said...

I make a list too--if I'm really desperate!

My TT is up.

Tink said...

Aren't we all a bit weird? I know I am? ;-)
