Blog Award

My friend, Cindy at Hun...What's for Dinner sent me an award last week.  Thanks, Cindy!  It's the Honest Scrap award.  I have to share 10 honest things about myself and pass the award along.  So here goes...

1. I have freakishly long arms compared to the rest of my body.  Long sleeve shirts are always about 2" too short on me.

2. I have a chocolate obsession, which is no secret.  But speaking of secrets, I think chocolate tastes better when eaten in secret.  I have a stash.

3. If I could, I'd sleep until 9 AM every day.

4. I hate folding laundry and would rather scrub stinky toilets.

5. Sometimes I think my son is doomed to repeat my awkward, gawky, bookworm adolescence.

6. I am afraid of grasshoppers.  I can do spiders, snakes, mice.  But not grasshoppers.

7. I don't like football, which is a statement that will get me shunned since the Saints are having a great season.

8. I am terrible at giving gifts.  It's not that I don't want to give gifts, it's that I suck at coming up with ideas for what to give.

9. I ran my first race 11 years ago.  My dad helped me train and ran the race with me.  We had a plan to pace ourselves until the last stretch and then turn it on.  He told me when I was ready to sprint to the finish, give him a sign so he'd know.  I got excited near the end of the race and forgot to give the signal.  I started sprinting and other runners followed.  I won the female category, my dad did not win male.  I still feel guilty about that.

10. I think I wasted a lot of time and money going to college and grad school.

The rules for this award:
