1. I have to sleep with my legs in a flamingo position. I sleep on my stomach, always, so I have to have one leg straight and the other one with my foot tucked against the other a flamingo...

2. I love to do my homework in my bed, if there's no bed, on the floor. I work so much better when I have everything out in front of me and I can keep changing positions. I spread Everything out in piles, it totally helps me organize my thoughts.

3. I blow dry my hair upside down. It's the only way I can get any body in my flat hair. Then I spray hairspray in the roots and walk around with my head down until its dry. Then I blow dry it again, upside down of course, and brush it out. It's the only way I have found to get the body I need for such long hair. Seriously.

4. I always save the best for last. Like when I'm eating, I never eat my favorite thing first. When I'm reading something I will save the best part for very last, or my favorite blog, or looking at pictures. This kind of goes into clothes too because when I buy something I love or I have something I love, it often gets worn the least because I save it for just the right moment, and I leave the tags on until I wear it.

5. I push on my teeth. I had braces for six years along with head gear, oral surgery, retainers, and all sorts of other contraptions to straighten my teeth. You name it, I most likely had it. As a result of all that I am pretty paranoid and obsessed with teeth. It's one of the first things I notice about people and something I was very particular about when I was dating. I have dreams all the time that I have to get braces again, or that my teeth fall out, and I wake up freaking out. I constantly worry about knocking my teeth out, or that they are going crooked. Anyway, a lot of the reason I had to get braces was because I had crazy buck teeth as a little girl, I guess I have always been sensitive about this and worried and so ever since I got my braces off I have this habit of pushing my bottom teeth against my front teeth, like pushing them backwards, as if this is going to keep them from going buck again. Ha. It's now kind of a nervous habit, that and itching my nose. You can always tell when I'm nervous because I will itch my nose a lot.

6. I have a freakish memory. I can remember numbers like nobody's business, phone numbers, combinations etc. you tell it to me, even once, and the chances are I'll remember it. I am especially good at remembering dates. RANDOM dates and events associated with them. I also remember what people wore/wear. It's kind of embarrassing, in fact, one of the ways I remember such dates/events so well is by what people wore...can't believe I'm saying that out loud... example: I remember what I wore on the first day of 9th grade which was the 23 of Aug 2000. I'm really good at remembering people too, by remember little tid bits they told me or things that happened when with them. I'm not as good at names as I used to be though. And unfortunately this doesn't transfer into my study as well. But, when I study the way I remember things is visual, like when I'm taking a test and I'm trying to remember an answer, I will remember where I saw it on the page and what else it was positioned by.

I'm sick. I hate it. Sick is the worst. I feel like a waste of space.

I woke up this morning feeling pretty normal, groggy, for about five minutes. I laid there talking to Garret, closed my eyes, and suddenly jumped and gasped because the room was spinning and I thought I was falling out of bed. It was all down hill from there. I kept feeling nauseous and the room kept spinning on and off. I mean literally, like I was on a merry go round, spinning. I had to grab something to try to keep from falling down and that didn't even save me a few times.

I finally puked. Gross I know. But feeling like you are going to puke is often much worse than the actually act. A three hour nap later I was feeling a little better. Still embarrassed that my husband saw me puke for the first time. But at least the room was not spinning as fast.

I of course overdid it and was still sick for the rest of the day. I have about ten tons of homework and couldn't really do any of it because I couldn't even get my eyes to focus. yea. it sucked.

But, on the brightside Garret wins husband of the year award because he took amazing care of me all day. He even missed the BYU game, had to eat lunch by himself and just sat around waiting for me to wake up. He waited on me hand and foot and told even told me I was "so pretty" when in fact I knew I was disgusting. I don't think I'll ever know what I did to deserve him.

So now I'm behind on school
and some work
and I am like a million blog worthy blog posts behind.

Someday I will catch up.

But for now I'm sick...
and with how sweet Gar is, I'm soaking up every minute of it.
