6 secrets...

Emily tagged me for a fun little post to share 6 secrets about yourself. This is a difficult task for me considering I have few secrets and the ones I do have I've probably had for so long I have forgotten about them. That short attention span thing! So if these aren't surprising to you, I apologize!

1. When I was younger I was terrified of the dark. I slept with a light on for a very long time. Now I want it as dark as possible when I sleep. The new curtains help a lot. But I have to cover the display on the VCR in our room and Morgan's alarm clock is even a bit distracting!

2. I am a bit of a germaphobe. I'm sure there's another name for it but you get the idea. Whenever I'm in a public restroom or restaurant or some place like that I get a little anxious about the germs that may be lurking around and the dirty people that may not have washed their hands!

3. I decided to be a teacher because I didn't think I could make a living as a dancer and/or an artist even though those were the things I loved to do most. Now that I've been a teacher I'd still like to be an artist. But I'm older, wiser and can't go back to school.

4. I regret quitting the dance team in high school. I danced for one year and I just couldn't do it longer. I was self-conscious and felt like I was the fat girl who didn't fit in. So I didn't do it again the rest of high school even though I loved to dance. It was also very hard for me to perform in front of my peers who I felt were judging me. High school was an awful place!

5. I didn't want to have children. Then when I was 32 I changed my mind. It was the best mind change I have ever had!

6. I can't have fish. I'm afraid I will kill them. Or they will just die because I don't know when they are sick.

Lots of interesting stuff there! Owen's awake now. Hopefully he will be interested in getting dressed today so we can go to the storytime at the library and then to Lowes for a new toilet seat! It's going to be a big day around here!

I enjoyed reading your secrets! Having a daughter in high school, I can certainly relate to how hard it can be. I was very self-conscious, too, at that age. My DD is just the opposite, though...go figure! lol I can also relate to your fear of having fish. I've killed off a couple of tanks of tropical fish and felt terrible about it. I can't have any more until I learn how to keep them alive!!
