Steph over at Serenity Now! Serenity Now! has tagged me with a meme. It's The Completely Honest meme. I am supposed to list 10 things about myself that I've never told anyone. This is me being honest:

  1. Many, many years ago I forgot I had a green mask on my face, I answered the door, talked with some kid about paper delivery and I didn't know I still had the mask on. I was so embarrassed when I saw myself in the mirror later.
  2. Every once in awhile after my shower I will go check my emails in the nude! (side note: my office is right off our bedroom/bath, didn't want you thinking I go around nude in my house!)
  3. I have a terrible memory for names. I have been known to go the other directions in a store because I spot someone and don't remember their name. (it's worse if someone is with me because I could never introduce them not knowing their name)
  4. When I was going through my divorce I was on the phone with a friend and my daughter was crying, wouldn't take her nap. She cried for a long time. When I went up to check on her she was actually hanging with her leg caught in the strap of a toy that hung across her crib. I never left her crying again! (sorry honey)
  5. I will actually gag or throw up if I see boogers.
  6. I never read the paper or watch the news.
  7. I get all of my medical tests done because I have to go to the doctor to get my asthma medications each year but I can't get myself to go to the dentist.
  8. When I smoked I use to step on the butt of the cigarette and then picked it up to put it in the trash. I still feel guilty for the few I didn't pick up.
  9. When my son was 6 he had gotten ill throwing up all over the top bunk, down the ladder, on the area rug, all over the toilet and all over the shower curtain. (I was a single mom at the time) I threw him in the shower and said if you ever do that again I will kill you. (sorry honey)
  10. I never feel worthy of compliments. (Gee maybe I just figured that one out!)

Then I'm suppose to tag 7 people:








Ladies if you are not interested in participating I totally understand.

Holy honest tag Batman! I really enjoyed reading this. Your son throwing up all over the place would make me puke, too...and the deal with the dentist, you sound just like my husband!

hmmm...this could totally open a can of worms. I love it!

Amy said...

This is a great list. Thanks for sharing. I am glad to hear I am not the only Mom that did crazy things.

Headless Mom said...

Funny...emailing in the nude? That's something I'd never do!

Blair said...

ModernMom said...

Randi Troxell said...

Kids cry - it happens and sometimes its' because they've gotten into a jam. Ahhh, such is life. It looks like your kids made it through so far :)

I haven't been to the dentist in quite awhile myself.

There are days I regret the things that come out of my mouth

Trish said...

Well, you are very honest Debby...enjoyed learning more about you. And we Mom's have all let our kids cry...

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I especially love the green mask incident!!!

That's kinda sweet that you still feel guilty for not picking up your cig butts.

You are worthy of compliments!!!

Heart2Heart said...

WOW, don't know if I have any secrets I haven't told anyone about. I would have to think long and hard about that one.

Love how you like me hate the dentist. It is the last and final resort that will bring me to them. You would think I would know better but after all this time, their technology hasn't changed much.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Tonja said...

I, too, fear the dentist. Hate to go! But, when I need them...I'm so glad they are there!

Laura said...

Ah- I am horrible with names too- my husband knows- If I don't introduce you- I've forgotten the name! tee hee hee!

jennifer said...

Oooh! That was a tough one! And you were very honest.

Looking at your scroll with the blog buttons is a little humbling... there are several people praying for their children.

xinex said...

Hi Debby, nice to know more about you. I am terrible with names too. You are Debby, right?


Debby, Thank you for being so open and sharing. I really enjoyed reading this post. LOL on the boogers, and throwing up... Can't wait to read another post like this one. Blessings, Audrey

It was fun reading your "honesty." Thanks for sharing. You have another award waiting for you here:

Deborah Ann said...

Well, I would certainly be challenged to come up with a list like this!

Hey Deb, I posted last night about those 'no reply' emails. One person went in to her comments section and added her email address, and it still shows up 'no reply.' Did you ever figure this out?

PropellerHeadMom said...

Great honesty! I love the part about the throwing up and the boogers :-) Thanks for sharing!

Technodoll said...

Are we sisters? LOL!

The forgetting names thing, OMG - guilty as charged... and boogers... and worth of compliements... durrr.

Lovely list and THANK YOU for thinking of me with the tag! I'll try to get it done this weekend but please don't be mad if not... am not feeling much mojo these days for anything :(

kado! said...

what fun to get to know you better! I am the same with names...horrible at remembering them! I'd say I'm the worst!
