A Bit About Me, April Edition


My birthday is on February 23, and on the 23rd(-ish) of each month, I share a little something about me...usually of a pretty random variety.

Here's April's randomness...

39)  I used to bite my nails.

I grew up a nail-biter, and I think it was in the sixth grade that I finally quit.  I would regress from time to time throughout high school and college, but for the most part, I realized I liked the look of manicured nails.  I specifically remember the last time I fell off the wagon…election night in 2004…and a nail-biter, that was!  I can’t remember if my hang nails lasted throughout all the hanging chad controversy, though.  ;)

40)  I sometimes have trouble getting rid of things…

…especially favorite articles of clothing.  I had the yummiest pair of corduroy pants in college.  I wore them until the seat literally wore out.  There was no way to fix them, but the thought of throwing them away made me teary-eyed.  I had Hubby do it, out of my sight.  Just put them out of their misery,” I begged him.

And this past week, I lost a favorite pair of flip-flops.  They needed to have been put to pasture probably two years ago…but I just couldn’t find a suitable replacement.  They had been relegated to my “garage shoes”, but they still got substantial wear.  I was traipsing around in the yard, and they BROKE.  Once again, Hubby came to the rescue and disposed of the evidence.  Sniff, sniff.

I love your loyalty to your clothes :)

I understand though - there are not many items of clothing I love but the ones I do, I would probably also pine over :)

Oh I love some of my clothes - literally to death.

And I have to wear polish to stop me from biting my nails

:)

but have you found a good replacement now? i think that we have the same feelings for flip flops....so if you have a pair you adore, i'd love to get the recommendation :)

Oh, good - there is hope for Grayden. :) She has become quite a nail biter!

I used to be a horrible nail biter, too...but now get compliments on my well maintained nails! :-)
