25 things about me

Since I have been tagged several times on Face book I have finally decided to play along. I am a multi-purpose kinda gal so I figured I'd post here as well.

Here Goes.....
1. I am a recovering Catholic. I went to a french catholic private school for 7 years (too long) and I can barely recite my prayers nor can I parle vous francois.

2. I love the outdoors. No matter what the temperature is I am out in the elements tending the critters, bringing in wood, or out exploring the back forty which I do often.

3. My life revolves around my kids, they are my greatest accomplishment!

4. I am fortunate to have such an amazing husband!

5. I like being physically fit and I TRY to eat healthy.

6. I NEVER watch TV unless it is a movie. If it was up to me we would not have cable.

7. I am a bit of a computer junkie. My kids even say google it when I have a question about something.

8. I am addicted to diet Pepsi

9. I was a WILD child throughout high school into my early 20's. (you know what they say about those catholic school girls)

10. I am proud that we raise/grow a lot of the food we eat. There is nothing like sitting down to a meal that was prepared from start to finish by the members of your family.

11. I am not nasty neat but not a slob. I like to start my day with a clean house and end it with a clean house but it is ok if it gets dirty in between. I am ok with clean laundry piles as long as the stack is not too big and as long as it is tucked in the corner a bit.

12. I HATE folding socks!

13. I am not materialistic. I do not get rid of things until they are worn out. I am ok with hand me downs.

14. I still have the old square Nokia cell phone.

15. I am hard on equipment. I love to mow the lawn, snowblow, rototill but 9 out of 10 times John has to repair them after I use them. I learned how to use a chain saw last year, scary thought ay!

16. I am LOW maintenance. (John may disagree)

17. I use little make up and it takes me 5 minutes to do my hair unless I try and fight these curls out with a straightener then I have to put my time in.

18. I am not a big shopper, I am most comfortable in a pair of jeans or yoga pants.

19. I am not much into jewelry although I do like funky earrings.

20. I rarely wear my wedding ring.

21. When I die I do not want the typical funeral service. I want to be cremated placed in a homemade wooden box, buried on my farm with an outdoor ceremony (pig roast would be cool) to celebrate my life.

22. I've never flown on a plane.

23. I have one brother but we were raised separately from the time I was 6 and he was 11.

24. He would be there for me through ANYTHING!

25. I am a conscientious person.

YD, sometimes with ♥June and ♥Angel Samantha said...

Thanks for sharing about yourself! It's nice to know more about you. I hate folding socks too, I usually just throw them in the socks drawer. I an also low maintenance and I don't use any makeup(a little when I go to a party or wedding...). Takes me less than 5 minutes to do my hair.

Cool list...I hear you on folding socks and no TV!

Welcome To Wilmoth Farms said...

Hello! really cool list Kim! nice to learn more about you like that!
I love the bird feeder/house in your pic...did you make that? And what did you use other than a coffee can?
I really loved your post:
those who wander are not always lost, Really made me tear up!!!! great post!

Amy said...

You sound like the kind of person I get along with really well. You're "real".

Jennifer said...

Very interesting, I hate to fold socks too.

We are so much alike! I do not fold socks though! I have a Rubbermaid container they all go into, every sock for itself! I wear NO makeup and it takes me maybe one minute to do my hair.

Neat answers, I am on facebook too:-D

Dianna said...

Woohoo! I never thought I'd meet anyone else who feels about cable the same way that I do.

Joanna@BooneDocksWilcox said...

I don't have kids but I relate to the rest. For one, I hate wearing jewelry.

I love my cable-free, make-up free, nearly clean - slightly messier than I would like simple life.

PS. Giving up cable is easier than you think! It is only missed for fleeting moments. But, the extra money in our budget is nice too!

Heather said...

Hmm there are quite a few things on there that I could say "Oh me too!" I am addicted to Diet Coke!

Nice list, thanks for letting us know you a little better!

Don said...

You have a lot of good, positive and healthy choices in your list. Lots of things to aspire to for me!

Danni said...

Hmmm....let's see...I, too, went to Catholic girls school and was incredibly wild until I hit 23 and got married :-). Good thing you and I went to different schools. :-)
I am a complete Diet Coke girl. In fact, if given the option of Diet Pepsi or nothing, I will choose nothing. The taste is too sweet to me. (can we still be friends? lol)
I *loved* my Nokia square phone. Mine flipped open to have a complete keyboard on the inside. I lost it about 6 months ago and was devastated. It was 5 years old.
Do we get to hear the story about why you and your brother were raised separately?

Nice list, I have had to do mine too you will find it on facebook somwhere...funny. I HATE TO FOLD SOCKS too...infact everyone in my family does so much, that we end up with a laundry basket full of them and just dig through them until one of us gives in, or a kid gets in

You are much more with it than me, but I suppose we will just have to get along anyway! :-) Thanks for sharing.

San Diego Farmgirl said...

Neat list, and like Janine, I read it and nodded my head along with many of them!
