I've been tagged!

By Samantha (Mom in Guam)

"Rules"After posting these rules, each player proceeds to list 8 relatively random facts/habits about himself/herself. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, leaving them a comment on their blogs to let them know.

1. I am concerned about diabetes since it runs in my family and I am overweight. The only reason I am concerned is not because of the health issues, it's that I cannot imagine not being able to eat sugar in it's worst forms. Circus peanuts, PEZ, candy corn, I love sugar.

2. I hate our current toothpaste, but refuse to open a 2nd tube. I have over 100 tubes, but can't bring my self to have 2 tubes open at the same time.

3. I wish I liked melon. Andrew likes all forms of melon and it looks so good, but I just don't like it.

4. My childhood memories begin the night my dad left. It was the summer before I turned 6. That is the first clear memory I have, I don't remember anything about kindergarten.

5. I can only buy shoes at a special store. My feet are so wide that I have very few options and all of them are expensive. Even if I lose weight, they will still be superwide.

6. I have more name brand products in my house since I started couponing. I love knowing that we will always have food and toiletries. I will never pay for toothpaste again.

7. I am terrible when it comes to being a girl. I am completely useless when it comes to clothes and makeup. Seriously, I can't seem to find a lipstick that works, so I don't bother.

8. I love Barry Manilow. I just can't help it. When he comes on my iPod, I crank it up and sing along.

All of my blogger friends have been tagged, so I've got nobody to tag.

If you get diabetes, you can still have sugar you just have to medicate for it. :)

I have no comment for #2 - I currently have 5 toothpastes open because it took that long to find a low scoring EWG one that I liked.

#4 makes me sad. As well as #5. #6 cracked me up - you will be in dentures before you run out of toothpaste. Maybe start a polident stash?

You will have to come over for some girling up. You've never seen my entire product stash. It's more insane than your toothpaste stash.

And lastly, I can't believe I am friends with not one, but two Fanilows. Lord have mercy.

I'm with milk how you are with toothpaste--in Guam we have shelf milk--Justin will know what it is--anyway, Ken is always opening another one before the first one is done---drives me nuts and we have like 20 or so --he thinks I'm so weird.

Yes, but if I get diabetes, I shouldn't eat a whole bag of circus peanuts. (I get sugar crazy w/ my period)

You shouldn't eat a whole bag of circus peanuts with or without diabetes!

Coupon Chris said...

Yeah, I know I shouldn't and I don't really do it much. Every once in a while and they are the small bags.
