50 Random Facts About Me- Part 5

This is Part 5 in a series of posts. You can read previous posts, "Random Facts About Me", by going  HERE, where all the other "facts" are listed.
41. Recently, I have been into wearing nail polish and will sometimes change my nail colors to match my outfit. Then I'll wear outfits that match my nails for several days. (I know, kinda weird, but just don't like having mismatched nails to my outfit.)

42. My absolute most hated housecleaning chore is cleaning the bathroom!!!! (Toilet, shower, tub, sink, all the above!) I gag at the sight of hair in the sink or tub drain. Gladly, my hubby had no problem and will do this job for me!
43. I think I spend way too much time on the internet! Yeah, I think I may be addicted to Facebook, blogging, watching Youtube videos. I probably spend around 2-4 hours online every day. Yikes. (But, I don't watch a lot of TV, mostly just Netflix movies and usually only with my hubby).

44. When I was a freshman in college, I was in a car accident with my brother, who was driving. He had just purchased the new car a few months earlier! We were the last car in a 5-car pile-up. I ended up cracking the windshield with my head and had a concussion.(A piece of advise: ALWAYS wear your seat belt!) My head bled profusely, but I didn't need stitches. as I had lots of small pieces of glass that cut my forehead I stayed in the hospital for a few days. I have no memory of the ambulance trip to the hospital!

(You can see the open door in the background of my brothers brand new Mustang (1981), totaled in the accident! The truck driver ahead of him tried to blame the accident on my brother by saying he pushed the truck into everyone else's vehicles. Yeah, right!)
45. I don't like the taste of coffee, but absolutely love the smell of it!

46. I've never smoked cigarettes or tried an illegal drug in my entire life. I didn't try alcohol till after I was married (mid-20's) and currently don't drink, except on rare special occasions. Just not my thing. (Plus I have a family bloodline of alcoholics, so why chance it?)

47. I am by nature, a night owl. I can be up as late as 1 or 2 a.m. and I don't like mornings. It takes me about an hour to totally feel awake, even though I can get up and go through the motion of getting ready.

48. Even though I don't like to, I can go through long hours without much sleep. Some may say I'm an insomniac. My hubby is totally amazed at this, as he usually needs at least 7 hours of sleep a night. If I do get tired during the day, a cat nap usually helps immensely!

49. Last spring (of this year, 2013) I had arthroscopic knee surgery, after my knee went completely out from under me and I couldn't put ANY weight on it. I've been told the surgery is a temporary fix and I'll eventually need knee replacement. My mom has had double knee replacement, and my brother(2 years older than me) has one knee replaced. I don't look forward to it, though! I absolutely HATE being put under anesthesia!

50. I'm thrilled to finally be done with this blog series! It was much more difficult than I thought it would be to come up with 50 different facts that you don't know about me. (I suppose, if you count the lists from my other blog, there really are more like 85-90 things I have posted about me.)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope this list didn't scare you away!! If not, I'd love for you to follow my blog on any of the links on the sidebar!

  2. Hi Ann! Thanks for sharing the last 10! That's amazing that the truck in front of you said your brother caused the accident! Wow...he must have been nuts! I'm glad you are ok, though! Accidents are scary! I'm not exactly a night owl...but I am a morning person! lol You know the type...bright and chipper and totally annoying! ha ha! Actually though, the last couple of years I've slept in more... to maybe 6:30 on weekends! :-) But, I do want (need?) that first cup of coffee in the morn!
    Blessings, Joan
    P.S. On FB a couple of years ago I put 20 random facts about me in my "notes" section. The facts in it are TRULY random...but, they do say something about me...Hope they make you smile!

    1. Hi, Joan...welcome back! Wow! Even though we have many things in common, we also are different in some ways! Yeah..cheerful morning people kinda bug me!! LOL! I went and found the notes on your FB page, too! Pretty awesome!

    2. LOL! Don't worry...I can behave myself! Over the years, I've learned to tippee toe around the house in the morning! (My son is like I am, my daughter is NOT a morning person) Glad you found the notes on FB...I should probably update them as I could add a few more "interesting" things about me that might make people laugh...

  3. I don't like the taste of coffee either, but I love the smell of it! It is very comforting! I sort of wish I could enjoy drinking it. But it tastes horrible to me!
