Wow - I don't know if I can come up with 10 interesting things confused

  1. I'm adopted - along with my brother and both cousins though none of us came from the same biological family
  2. I can turn my left wrist completely around 360 degrees
  3. My fingers are all double jointed which is how I got into music - doctor told my mom playing piano would strenghthen them and make them go in the right direction.
  4. I play every instrument of the concert band - and auditioned for the Chicago Symphony on flute/picc (but didn't make it)
  5. I'm a PK (Preacher's Kid)
  6. I'm the only person in my family (parents, brother, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents) with brown eyes
  7. I believe my house is haunted (or maybe I'M haunted?)
  8. I'm very 'crooked' - had braces twice and my teeth are still crooked, fingers are crooked, have scoliosis and wore a Milwaukee Brace from 5th-8th grade - and my spine is still crooked
  9. I was in a sorority in college
  10. I've only been married once (for 17 years) but I've had 3 marriage proposals

Not sure any of that is interesting but it's the best I could do, LOL

1. I entered my career field with the desire to build roller coasters. I'm still working on that one but I did get to work with jets for awhile (roller coasters without tracks).

2. I'm a soft atheist and I believe everyone should take care of everyone else because we are all in this world together.

3. I bite my hang nails as a nervous or bored habit. DH hates it.

4. I didn't get my DL until 17 because I refused to drive the car my dad let my sister drive. Once I agreed to get my DL, that car broke and I got a replacement 2 weeks after I got my DL.

5. DH and I both suffer from abandonment issues. I lost my mother to cancer at age 11 and DH's dad walked out on them when he was 5.

6. I was not only in, but VP of the engineer national honors society in college, but my graduating GPA was only 3.0. To get in, you have to be a Junior or Senior with at least a 3.8 GPA in engineering.

7. I can't stand wasting money. Even for gifts for others. I would rather buy someone 10 used books than 1 new one. I physically hurts me to do so.

8. When the boss is gone, the other engineer and I will sneak out and hold a meeting on the golf course.

9. I have to use an ergonomic keyboard at work and home.

10. As much as I wished at the time that DH and I could have a "real" wedding, I'm glad we didn't waste the money. It's only been 4 years and it feels like a lifetime ago. Memories fade way too fast!

1. I never sneeze just once.
2. I'm indecisive as can be. My daughter was 2 days old before I had a name for her.
3. I love breakfast and have been known to eat it for all 3 meals.
4. Before becoming pregnant I did not want to be a mom. I was never bitter about it, it just never struck me as something I'd do.
5. I married my husband 6 months from the day I met him.
6. I love To Kill a Mockingbird and as such was probably the only high school student to enjoy English class.
7. I've known my best friend 24 years. Collectively we've lived in 13 states and 2 countries, but we've never lost touch. We now live less than 15 minutes away.
8. Somedays I leave my phone at home just not to have it.
9. My kids have never stayed with a babysitter who wasn't family or my best friend.
10. I hate sports but love the Cubs and Wrigley field.
