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.

If you haven't entered my GIVEAWAY from Usborne Children's Books, you have until Sunday, April 29, to do so...hope you'll check it out, and good luck!!!

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 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! :-)
