It's Baaaaaack...

I'm going to start by declaring my appreciation for each and every one of the now THIRTEEN nominations!  Really, I do, but for the love of God could someone please pimp me out so I get over 200 followers already!  It makes me feel super lame that I've been nominated 13 times and still don't have 200 followers! LOL!  Oh well, with every nomination comes the opportunity to talk/write more about myself and the Attention Whore inside me LOVES it!

Here we go, this time Amy over at Getz Girl On Fire nominated me! Amy is a wife and SAHM to 3 adorable kids, she uses her blog as a scrapbook of her family's lives, "A love letter to my kids and to my future self!" She recently started finding her love of running and is almost finished with the C25K training program, head on over and check her out!

2. You must write eleven facts/things/tidbits about yourself.
3. You must answer eleven questions that were given to you from your nominator.
Eleven Things You Never Wanted To Know About Me:
1. I'm a car-aholic.  I get bored with cars in a hot second, its horrible.  In my 15 years of driving I've had 9 vehicles, that comes out to a 1.67 year average Darci-Life per car.  Yikes!  My all time favorite car was my 1993 Black Geo Tracker! Top Down, Music Up, That's The Way I Like To F... that may or may not be true, I'll never tell!
2. I refuse to clip my children's toenails and/or fingernails. Nope, can't do it...won't do it, no matter how cute they try to make the clippers!
3. I was the first chosen Sophomore Girl to be a Mat Maid for the wrestling team in HS. It was a very big deal to be chosen to be a Mat Maid period, let alone as a Sophomore.  Mat Maid = Cleaning the mats before practice and duals, traveling with the team to all meets, keeping score for each match, and giving as many maybe inappropriate massages your little hands can handle. To this day, I still love a man in a singlet! Ow! Ow!
4. I get hormone injections every 2 weeks. Being pre-menopausal at 28 years old is simply unfair!
5. I have to kneed my feet against each other to fall asleep; it's an odd habit, but I've done it for as long as I can remember.
6. I had unfairly easy deliveries with both of my kids.  Jack I pushed twice, one contraction.  Norah Bean I pushed four times, two contractions.  I also pooped both times...KARMA!
7. I don't have a Thyroid, it was removed for "growths" when Jack was 5 months old.  I take a natural hormone replacement daily.
8. I chew on the inside of my cheeks when nervous or bored or annoyed or I guess in general.
*do not google "chewing on cheeks" images*
9. The Husband and I work for the same company, different departments - we don't interact at all!  If you didn't know, you'd think we were complete strangers.
10. I need SELFIE rehab! Wait, you already know that! #sorryimnotsorry
11. Old men in Mr. Rogers cardigans FREAK me out!  Once they take their shoes off, it's over...I'm done!
