I realize that you can get to know me a little from by About Page or following me on facebook, twitter, or pinterest. But how much can you really know a person from social media? So today I’m going to share some random facts about myself so you can get to know this Average Housewife a little better.
One of my nicknames is P. I called my sister She growing up, because Sheila is just too many syllables to say. Paula was obviously to many syllables for my sister too, because she called me P. P and She. Now my husband calls me P too.
I rarely paint my nails. When I do it sits on my nails until the last piece finally chips off. Much to my husband’s chagrin, I probably only have pretty nails a couple times each season.
I’m not athletic. I tried a few different sports growing up and really I don’t think I was good at any of them. I’m not too keen on balls flying at me. I am totally okay with being in the stands cheering on the game.
I really dislike talking on the phone. Most girls spend hours on the phone using up every single minute of their cell plan. Not me. I would rather you text, tweet, email, or just talk to me in person.
I love to play board games. I have always loved playing games. I am also blessed with a husband who likes to play games too. Though he usually tries to talk me out of Monopoly, but Settlers of Cataan is one we can both agree on.
I hated writing in school, but I enjoy blogging now that I’m grown up. I hated writing essays, putting research papers together, and composition in college. Maybe I enjoy blogging because it’s on my terms?
I love books. I like reading in my spare time. Barnes and Noble is my favorite place to shop. The library and I are inseparable. E-books are also acceptable.
I grew up hating garage sales and now I have hard time saying no to stopping at one. I may have hated them as a kid because I always went with my dad and he was looking for “guy stuff”. Ever since I got pregnant with Abby I have been a hard core garage saler. ( I know saler is not a word, but it works.) “Why buy new when slightly used will do?”
I love my alone time. It’s few a far between these days, but I try to get out of the house by myself for an evening, every couple of weeks. Being alone is recharging to my battery. It helps me be a better me.
I hate clothes shopping. I know, I’m a girl, therefore I’m supposed to love spending hours going through the mall finding cute clothes. In reality, shopping drains my battery. If I have to try on clothes, I’ll only last about 15 more minutes.
So, that’s me. Do we have anything in common?
