10 Superstitions, Traditions, and/or Personality Quirks

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

I have no idea why I started doing some of the things that are on this list - maybe things that people told me when I was little that I just never stopped doing. Some are superstitions, some are just little quirky things I do…

  1. I always cross my fingers when passing by a cemetary
  2. When I order fries with my meal at a restaurant, I line up several fries in a queue line to cool off before I eat them
  3. Out family tradition is going to midnight mass on Christmas eve and opening our presents afterwards
  4. Every winter, I push my sister into the snow in front of our house. Several years ago, I hadn’t realized that my father planted a tree in front of the house and that the brick border was hidden under the snow. With that said, my sister still feels pain in her ribs whenever the weather turns bad. I’m such a mean sister.
  5. I always set my alarm 30 minutes before I have to wake up, because I’ll always snooze the alarm - for an hour. Which makes half an hour late for everything
  6. Whenever I travel for work, I wear a locket with a picture of my son Ben in it
  7. All of my comic books have to be bagged and boarded
  8. I cannot have long fingernails. The clackety clack sound they make on my keyboard drives me crazy
  9. I always wear new clothes on New Year’s Eve
  10. I only use Q-Tips, any other kind of cotton swab isn’t good enough for me.

10 Things You Love About Your Life

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Sometimes we’re so busy moaning and groaning about the stresses in our lives, wishing for things we can’t have or the life we should have had that we forget to appreciate how lucky we are to be alive. So what makes your life wonderful?

  1. My son! Every day I’m thankful he’s in my life
  2. The rest of my family. Sorry family, you’re all lumped into one number.
  3. My city. Well, the city that I grew up in….I’m in a suburb now. Chicago is a great city to live by!
  4. Friends that don’t abandon me even though I’m crappy at keeping in touch
  5. Working at home - it’s a love/hate thing
  6. Our DVR. Even though we have 3 televisions in the house, we still fight over the main TV. With a DVR, I can just watch my stuff when I’m up late at night
  7. Leftover birthday cake. YUM.
  8. The fact that I’ve learned to enjoy cooking, rather than finding it a chore
  9. Getting more into photography
  10. I’m really good at what I do for work, even though there are times when I don’t like it much
