I'm not Afraid to Admit....

Thanks again to Brandi, I have been tagged to share information about myself. I find that the more people know about me though, it tends to either intrigue them or freak them out. So here I go once again, opening myself up to the possibility of judgment in the name of a game, called; Tag-Name 15 things you're not afraid to admit.
Let me start by saying, "Even though I'm a pretty open person. I have a lot I could hide or be fearful of admitting, but then that would defeat all God's work in my life." Since 15 things is a lot, I'm going to divide them into 5 categories.

Category 1 ( feelings)
1. I'm often lonely. I have very few friends.
2. I love the feeling of being lost- like when I'm hiking or driving.
3. I feel very loved by my husband and kids.

Category 2 (Physical characteristics)
4. My butt is metamorphosing. It is no longer rounded, it now is more the shape of a flank steak. it stretches from my lower/mid back and ends at my upper thighs.
5. I now have a mustache that requires shaving.
6. I really am considering plastic surgery on my stomach. My muscles were ripped apart at age 22. The stretch marks go from my little girl parts all the way three inches above my navel. I have struggled with this for 14 years now. I'm tired of it looking like ground meat.

Category 3 (weird things)
7. I love to pick my toenails. I know, gross.
8. I dance all the time. Yes, the white girl does funky chicken at the disco dance.
9. I refuse to use my cell phone when I'm checking out of a store. I rarely use it in public.

Category 4 (past)
10. I started using drugs when I was 10. (obviously I quit)
11. I have been arrested more than once.
12. I used to get suspended from school because I refused to wear shoes.

Category 5(misc.)
13. I'm a lot stronger than I look and have great stamina.
14. I use to sell Amway-Love their skincare.
15. I set our bathroom on fire when I was 8.

I'm not going to tag anyone, I find most people don't like to play. It's so disappointing to tag someone and check their blog incessantly, only to find they never play. Even though I love to read what other people write. Oh well... So if you want to play. Leave me a comment so I can read yours.

I always love your tags!!! They intrigue and humor me! You crack me up! Get running so that we get to spend the weekend together in January!

Love you!

We have more in common than you think. I was tagged last week and I did a twist on it. Changed it around a little bit.

Andrea said...

Love reading about people the interesting quirks. It's what makes us unique and special...even those that pick their toes...LOL ;o)

Major Mom said...

You. Crack. Me. Up. I love your honesty...I think you say what most people think or in this case do:)

Candace said...

I did it! I feel bad for failing you last check it out and let me know what you think!

Missy said...

I think I've said this before, but I truly love how multi-dimensional and unboring you are.

Is it against blog etiquette for me to comment to Brandi here? I hope not.....
What are you talking about? you, lonely? few friends? That may be one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

Didn't realize you had just been tagged by B, and I tagged you too. Different one, though. Play if you want, no hard feelings if you don't.


Laura Lu said...

you're so crazy...this is the stuff that makes me love you, my dear!!!! well not the picking toe nails...but you know what i mean! :)

miss ya, babes! we're still goin' swanky someday, right?!!?!

Laura said...

Steff, the thing about being tagged is, you need something interesting to say. After reading your posts, my life is down right dull. I am sorry I let you down last time...I truly thought about what I would write and it became depressing so I let it go. Maybe I'll have the courage. I love knowing you and all of your quirks. It makes you who you are and you are wonderful! Thanks for being real and being courageous! xoxoxox

Carol said...

My only friends are my mom and my sister. :) A really good friend is SO hard to come by.
As for the rest of them... I wish we lived closer so I could get to know you more! So put me in the intrigued category. I think you're terrific! :)

amy said...

Oops. :) I'm at my mom's house! That last comment was me!

Here's what we have in common:1)I am also lonely a lot, I have lots of acquaintances, not that many friends. 3)But I am loved a lot by my family. 4)Sadly, my butt too is migratory. 6)I've HAD plastic surgery. 9) I hate to tell people my cell phone number and I never talk in the check out line. 15)I've never set fire to the bathroom, but I did once kick a hole in the wall of one when I was a kid. Here's some additional stuff I'll admit: I have had lots of car accidents. I specialize in backing into parked vehicles, closely followed by rear ending people. I bad mouth my boss behind his back. I love them, but my in laws make me crazy. I put a dent in the wheel of my dad's car when I was 16 years old, and I will deny it to this day if he asks. That's all I can think of right this second.

Melinda said...

I think this is the best tag I have read yet! :) So funny! I am a slacker on this and now feel a little bad for dissing the people who tagged me. :( Thanks for sharing and for the laughs.
