I have been tagged! Sandra at Waiting gave me my first tag! I'm supposed to write 6 things that are weird about me. So here it goes.
1) Like Sandra I'm a freak about my socks. They can't bunch around my toes. They can't be too tight or too loose. They can't stick to my feet. I can't feel the seem or I freak out. Socks are a big issue for me when I get ready in the morning!
2) I'm addicted to new cars. I've had 4 new cars in the last 6 years. I'm crazy. I finally have a car that I've had over a year and am not thinking of getting rid of!
3) I'm very shy. I get very nervous before any family gatherings, work parties, etc. It's weird because I was in a sorority in college, and was a social butterfly. When I was on Wheel of F0rtune, I panicked when I was thinking about talking about myself. Not a pretty thought...I did fine though, but it totally scared me!
4) I'm obsessed with recipes. I have about 20 cookbooks, a box of recipe cards, a magazine subscription, and a subscription to an online recipe trading page...and I only cook home made food about once a week!
5) I'm obsessed with moving. All I can think about it all the time, I worry about it all the time, I talk about it all the time. I want to move not only out of my house but out of the state. I've been talking about it for almost 4 years, and it has become a staple in my life. And, surprise, we're once again thinking about moving. I wonder if it will ever happen...
6) I'm an organized slob. My cupboards are totally messy, but I know where everything is. Certain things go on certain shelves, even if they aren't organized and neat. Everything in my kitchen has a specific place to go, and no one would know it but me!

I'm so sorry! I've been so busy it isn't even funny!
So, a few updates.
1) Preggo teen faked the pregnancy then faked the miscarriage. She's unbelievable. She turns out the be a pathological lier. She lies all the time, it's very crazy. So bad I almost feel bad for her...almost.
2) The bridal showers are all planned and ready to go, thank god. I just have to make the scrapbook I'm giving her and I'll be all ready to go!
3) I'm applying for a new job. I have a friend whose job will have 3 openings soon, and as soon as they post the job, I'm applying. I'm tired of being treated like crap at work, so wish me luck, I'm going to need it.
4) No news on the adoption front. We are working on the application but want to make sure we have everything done correct before we turn it in. E and I are very excited to start on this new journey, but we don't want to rush the application and do anything wrong, so we are taking our time to do it right the first time.

On a personal front, I'm wishing everyone a very happy new years! I agree with Larisa when she said 2006 did! I'm so happy that I have all the answers I need so I can move on to 2007 with a fresh plan and a fresh outlook. This year, I hope to be approved for adoption and on the waiting list, I hope to take a trip before we have our child, I hope to have a new job, and I hope that this year will bring more happiness than tears. I'm not making any resolutions, because I hardly ever keep them then I feel like a loser. This year I'm only making hopes.
