7 things you didn't know about me

I got tagged by P.S. He Loves You a week ago to tell 7 things about myself. And, to be honest, after doing my 100 things and Total Truth Tuesdays I am starting to wonder if there is anything about me that isn't public knowledge?

But, I'm going to give it a try, so here goes.

1. Growing up my family had tons of pets. Weird ones. A few of the most memorable? Potbelly pig (yes it slept in my bed - and no we were not hillbillies), Red & Yellow Macaws, and Wolf Hybrids.

2. I think fact number one is why we don't currently have any real pets now. I do like animals. But, mostly I like other people's animals.

3. My family is in the furniture business for over 30 years which means I have done everything from sanding, painting, and staining to moving, decorating and selling furniture. I think it is one the coolest and most challenging businesses to be in.

4. I am a super fast reader. It drives my husband crazy when we're trying to read something together. I'm ready to turn the page before he's even halfway through it. I think it is a left-over survival instinct from my days as an English major in college.

5. On more than one occasion I have had to wash and rewash and rewash again clothes that were in the washer because I seem to have a complete inability to take them out before they sour.

6. I was once the object of affection of a completely psycho stalker. He even went as far as to leave dead roses and toe nail clippings for my (now) husband. Scary.

7. In college my vision tested as "predator vision" level. I have no idea what it means, but I think it has to come in handy as a mom, right?

And, technically, I am supposed to tag 7 other people. So, here goes. If you don't want to do it, feel free to ignore my tag and if you do want to and I didn't tag you then leave me a note in the comments after you post so I can come over and learn 7 things about you!

I used to want a pig when I was a kid. My parents were all uh....no here's a cat and a dog now shut it. You must have really fun parents!

And I am so guilty of #5 as well. It's my dirty little secret I try to hide from my husband. I also "warm up" the clothes in the dryer so I can fold them sans wrinkles.

Done!

And I'm with you on Project Runway...they keep the obnoxious people on because they create drama. I couldn't stand the last two winners, and I have a feeling we're going to see Blayne and Suede for many, many more weeks. Ugh.

6. That is crazy!

Was it someone from college?
Did you have to get a restraining order?

I can definitely say I am guilty of #5, who isn't at some time or another.

Did it last week, left the clothes in there for 2-3 days before I took them out.
