1.) I use the word "chummy" a lot. In place of words that I forget. It drove my sister foolish when I was home. For example, I just used it when talking to Rob. I couldn't remember the word for the scroll bar on the side of the screen so I said " I was hitting the chummy". During one conversation back home with Kassie I was trying to say "storage unit" and I used the word chummy instead. For the rest of my time back home, everytime I used the word chummy she replaced it with storage unit. Example: "Kassie can you pass me the chummy (meaning cup)?" "You want me to pass you the storage unit?"
2.) I can only find the other corner store in this community by driving one way. I have to turn down a specific road to get there, and if I'm anywhere else in the community such as Colby's school and want to go there, I have to backtrack to the road I know to get there. Yes, pathetic I know.
3.) When Rob is home, I have to sleep with our bedroom door closed. It drives me crazy if it's open. When he's not home, I can't sleep if the door is closed.
4.) I never walk barefoot. I always have socks and crocs on.
5.) I'm addicted to the news, both local and back home news. I read the local news online and watch the news from Halifax everyday.
6.) I never take my jewelry off. I can't remember the last time I took my earrings out, which is why I wear hoops in both sets.
7.) I always hated it when my mom and aunts called me Teenie as a child and even as a teenager, but when my neices and nephew were born I taught them all to call me Aunt Teenie.
8.) I can watch the same movie over and over and cry in the same spots everytime. Case and point? The escalator scene in Shall We Dance.
9.) I can't start my mornings properly anymore without coffee. I was never like this until I moved up here.
10.) I have to read before falling asleep in bed or I can't sleep. And, if I'm in bed for more than 5 minutes and I can't fall asleep I have to get up.
Just like OHN, I'm encouraging everyone who reads this to do this also, either on their blogs or in the comments of mine.
