I've Been Invited...

and I am totally not afraid to admit 15 things about me.

Here goes:

1. I can't leave home without ALL beds made. Crazy, I know!
2. I sit on the floor in my closet to have my quiet time in the Word.
3. My house must be cleaned (for the robbers) before leaving for a vacation
4. I am severely OCD about some things. I betcha you already figured as much!
5. Germs tend to freak me out.
6. I don't watch much TV. If it were up to me, we wouldn't own any.
7. I love to scrapbook and to blog
8. I weighed 95 pounds when I married. Trust me, I wasn't comfortable with it.
9. I have to wear socks to bed at night, actually a pair of Dirk's sock.
10. I don't ride roller coasters
11. I love to play the arcade game Pac-Man and have one sitting in my gameroom.
12. I MUST have at least one Coke a day
13. I don't do well being unorganized
14. I must have my to-do-list written out each day
15. I collect crosses and hang them up all over my home

Thank you to my new blogging buddies over at Shortybears Place and Speaking from the Heart for tagging me with this.

I am supposed to tag others, but I think that this is fun and whoever is reading and wish to pick up this tag and come along, please do so.

I really enjoyed doing it. Now you know even more strange and interesting things about me. LOL!

Denise said...

This was fun.

He And Me + 3 said...

Ok, that is very scary...we are so much alike. OCD...Yep, beds made...yep, house clean before leaving for vacation or anytime I leave the house...yep, I think there were only 2 things not alike. We are so cool!

Lorrie said...

This is a fun post. I have to clean my house before going on vacation, too depressing to come home to a mess! I tend to be an organized list maker too--people like us are the beavers of the world, the one's who get things done! I'm not much of a TV watcher either...

It's neat to learn all these new things about you.

Debra said...


Beds must be made! And the house must be clean before vacation...is this OCD? hahaha

And I'm terrified of roller coasters! We are so alike! I'm such an organizer..I make a list to do my list! haha

Blessings to you tonight ((hugs))

Edie said...

I almost never watch television but keep one in case I want to watch the news or discovery channel. I love animals so I don't suppose you watch the discovery channel much. :)

Enjoyed reading about you!

Named Alicia said...

If it were up to me, we wouldn't own a TV either. I do like to have my house clean on vacation. When I am feeling the organizational bug, I will make a list. But then I forget to cross things off. Oh well, such is life.

These posts are so much fun! I love reading about everyone else! Take care, my friend!

Carrie said...

Fun! I am so OCD sometimes ~ I clean before everything cleaning calms me it a good thing that is my busy huh!

Alicia said...

LOL, I have to have the beds made too!!! I can't stand to walk in a room w/ an unmade bed! I w/ you on the roller coasters too! If I had coke available at home, I would drink more than one..LOL.

Sandy Toes said...

WE are so much a like...I cannot leave without beds made...I will be late but beds are made!!! What fun info!

coco said...

Loved your list because I can relate so well! I make the bed the minute I get out of it...can't stand to see it unmade. I am totally with you on the germ thing too...I think I have warped my kids by always carrying wipes or hand sanitizer!

Anonymous said...

We all have at least 15 things about us...I love you just the way you are. :o)

Jennifer said...

Interesting facts! I think crosses are a GREAT thing to collect! Much better than bugs, birds, bells, or stamps..lol!

Hi Daphine
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. I have enjoyed reading your blog and am looking forward to getting to know you better. I hate rollercoasters too. I wouldn't go on one if someone paid me!
Your have the most beautiful family and those pictures your friend took of you all are super. My daughter would love the jackets your daughters are wearing. I will call back later and read some more after work.
Best Wishes

I loved reading about your 15 things you aren't ashamed of. We have a few things in common. I weighed less than 100 pounds when I got married. Looking back at pictures I looked terrible.... way too thin. I get extremely stressed out if I am around clutter. I am a very organized person!

I got so tickled when I read #3! I do the same exact thing when we leave for vacation! In fact, it's so bad that I'm often the last one out the door because I'm running the vacuum cleaner or mopping the floors! Isn't that funny?! I am, also, OCD about a lot of things, too. Drives my family nutso! I weighed 94 lbs. when we got married, but I'm short, remember? I have post-it-notes sitting out over my kitchen desk to help me remember what needs to be done. My memory's slipping these days! :)

Your list was so much fun to read! Thanks for posting it and have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

April said...

Ooops! I forgot to mention...you've won an award...check it out on my blog! Enjoy!

Mama Hen said...

I am the same way about the beds. I actually made the mistake of telling my hubby I had to make the beds so the fireman would know I made the beds if we had a fire. I haven't lived that one down yet.

Stacey said...

I'm very with you on the organized, beds made, Diet Coke part!

My next door neighbor and I have a pact. If I die while gone she will clean my showers before company comes. If she dies I will vacuum!!

It's an odd feeling to sit and think of some of those things isn't it?

Heather said...

LOL, yes, we're both controlling germ freaks who need to be organized while wearing socks to bed, LOL LOL. I can't find a better friend than that!

Lorie said...

I have to make my bed in the morning too! I am not nearly as organized as you sound, but my bed is one thing that I HAVE to do before anything else!!

Darlene said...

What fun stuff about you! I make my bed each day when I get out of it....but Lexi does not. Also, I clean my home before a trip too just so I don't come back to more of a mess. I don't want to clean house when I am trying to wash laundry and get it all back together after a trip!

Rae said...

95 pounds? 95 POUNDS?! You little cute thing, you! I am so OCD about certain things too! I can't leave the house unless everything is picked up. I would hate to get into a car accident and die while I'm gone and have people come into my home and think what a slob I am....I told you I was crazy!

You would love the girl's dentist office. They have a big Pac Man arcade machine! The kids love it!!!

My word verification is: imissick Translation: Im is sick! How weird is that?

Wendy said...

This was great to read!! I know you that little bit better now :-)

Laurin R. Kelly said...

Hahahaha, I laughed and found some of these things quite interesting! What is with people not enjoying roller coasters? I'm afraid of heights but love the thrill of hopping on a roller coaster. I might scream like a girl (wait, I am a girl) on the way down but I usually enjoy making fun of myself with my friends after wards!! I make notes too! I have so many notes hanging around my house of things that need to be done and I cross them off when they are finished!

What a great list!

Isn't it awesome to come home to a clean house after a trip?!?

JuJu and Family said...

Hi there Daphine, stop by my blog and pick up your award. Take care!

Mod Girl said...

The making the beds thing... yeah, me too!

Jennifer Raack said...

I thought it would be fun to respond to each thing you wrote about yourself so, here it goes:

1. Well, that's an improvement...you used to have to vaccum before you left too...haha!
2. I have to be creative with quiet time too. I thought about putting a chair in my closet!
3. I laughed when I read this because I remembered you saying this years ago. It is one of the things about you that has always made me laugh! Of course, when we last went on vacation, I thought, "What if die on vacation somehow?! I wouldn't want my house to be messy when people came over to visit my family! So, I cleaned the whole house before we left!"
4. Well, duh! :)
5. And you're getting a dog!
6. That's a good thing.
7. Glad you're blogging.
8. I remember you complaining about weighing 95 pounds and wishing you could gain weight. I honestly considered sitting on you several times out of jealousy...just kidding. I remember you drinking those special shakes to try to gain weight and you never gained anything!!!
9. And you have been cold natured since I've known you (what is it, 19 years now?).
10. But I would love to have a video of you if you did...it makes me giggle thinking about it!!!
11. Did you ever get the Pac-man game (the sit down one) you were looking for?
12. I completely understand this...although my must have is Diet Dr. Pepper.
13. The antonym for Unorganized is Daphine, it says so in my dictionary!!!
14. See 13.
15. I didn't know that...I have another friend who collects them and she has some of the most beautiful crosses I have ever seen!
