Friday Five

I’ve long been debating doing a series of posts that you see around, you know, one of the 100 facts about me.  I guess I’ll just jump in!


1.  I cannot stand whistling.  It does not make me happy and cheery.  It actually makes me irrationally angry.  I don’t know why.  It’s like nails on a chalkboard for me.  I am getting better at tolerating it though.  I have to.  GG often whistles, and Bam does this weird little whistle while he’s concentrating.

2.  I have this crazy insane fear of driving.  I didn’t drive for years.  Seriously, I relied on others for rides.  It all changed after having kids.  I had to drive places.  I still get twitchy sometimes.  I have to have my route fully planned out, down to which lane I need to be in.  if a lane it’s closed, it can throw me into a full blown panic attack.  I’m not even sure where the fear came from, I got my license at 16 without major incident, in a major blizzard no less!  Sure, on the way there I got stuck in a snow drift, but we still laugh about it.

3.  When I was really young… Maybe 4 years old, I had wanted to be a police officer so that I could direct traffic.  That’s all I wanted to do.  I even got caught trying to practice more that a few times.  Luckily I lived in a very small town and the streets were pretty dead.

4.  I live near some incredible beaches, but I cannot stand sand, or salt water.  The sand gets everywhere and into everything.  The salt water makes my body all sticky.  I do my best to tolerate them for the sake of my kids, but to me, beach day doesn’t mean fun and relaxation.

5.  I have an addiction to ice water.  It has to be a glass absolutely full of ice, topped off with some water.  I actually have many glasses in random rooms.  Ice gets melt-y and I never know when I’m going to get thirsty.  I’ve thought about getting a mini fridge for the bedroom upstairs, so I can always have ice cold water.  At bedtime, I tend to bring up one glass of ice water and a couple of glasses of ice.  It melts and I still have ice water throughout the night.  This is a little fact that drives my husband nuts.
