I'm IT!

Well, 1 of 7 anyway...

My sil, Jenna, tagged me for the 7 randoms meme.



Just to be sure I wasn't repeating anything that has been mentioned on here before, I went back through all my posts and you can read other random stuff about me here, & here, & here, & here. (For anyone who might be interested.) Now for 7 NEW things!

Here goes...

1. I enjoy cooking and for the most part am fairly confident, but when I'm in someone else's kitchen, or have someone else in mine helping me, I become a little insecure about the way I'm doing things.

2. Dictionary.com and I are very good friends. I, very often, have it opened in the background so I can check spelling and also, proper word usage. Which leads to another good random fact about me...

3. I have a pretty poor vocabulary. I'm really good at taking random words that sound in my head like they should work, and just throwing them into a sentence. I think they usually come out of my mouth though, faster than I can actually decide if it should or not, so then I quickly throw out, "is that the right word?" or "does that make sense?" Josiah could confirm this...I think I mostly do it around him.

4. I get canker sores in my mouth when I'm stressed out about things. Probably most often over finances. I currently have one due (I'm sure) to the fact that my bank is screwing up our account. Yesterday Josiah and I had to go into a branch because our debit cards had been suspended and I couldn't even access our account online. When I called about it, they said it was because we were using our savings account as a checking account which isn't true. What happened was our savings account was overdrawn due to an unauthorized payment that went through. This has now happened 2 months in a row. When it happened a month ago, I called about it and they said they were going to put a stop payment on it, so that it couldn't happen again, and then they filed a claim, which of course was going to take 10 "business" days til the payment was reversed. Well, someone didn't do their job properly and it happened again last week. I figured that since it happened before, that an investigation was done the last time and it was determined that it was indeed an unauthorized thing, that they should be able to just reverse the money right away, but no. They had to file another claim and again we're waiting 10 days. Totally ridiculous! Anyway, yesterday while Josiah was at work, he was attempting to pull some money out of an ATM using his debit card and it wouldn't work. Not sure why our debit cards would be connected to all of this but that's how we found out that they were suspended. Glad to know that's how Wells Fargo treats their customers of 10+ years. There's a good chance we'll be doing business with someone else after our money is returned this time...

5. When I eat a meal, I tend to use several (5-6) napkins. I get teased for this. I'm not sure why/how I go through so many, but I do. I wipe my hands/mouth after almost every bite. I really don't think I'm extra messy, but maybe I am? Or maybe I'm just extra clean!

6. There have been several times that I've splurged and spent more money than I should have, and have ended up taking back most of what I bought because I found that I needed that money for gas or bills, or FOOD! I'm just always grateful that I've realized it before those things were opened/had tags removed.

7. One of my favorite treats is a butterfinger blizzard from DQ, but with about 1/2 the amount of the butterfinger as what would typically be put in.

Whew! That was harder than I thought it would be! Now I'm going to tag...

My husband, Josiah, because I know how much he LOVES memes!...

My mom, because she needs to update her blog...

My sister, Tanya, because she's my favorite sister...

My sil, Leslie, because she'll be upset if I don't tag her... :P

My sil, Jill, because I don't want to leave anyone out...

Tonya, because it's been fun getting to know her better...

Fun facts to read.

I hate the unauthorized band drafts, it happened to us last month with our orthodontist, but everything got returned right away. We have Arizona Federal Credit Union and I don't have a bad thing to say aobut them. If your looking for another bank soon, I highly recommend them.

Sorry you've been stressed. Things are tight for everyone right now with the economy the way it is. To throw in something like that is the straw that breaks the camel's back!

Leslie said...

Okay I did it...and you seriously don't have tag me...I will not be offended!! Unless it is a fun one then maybe I might be.

Wells Fargo has been nothing but a pain in our butts. We now bank with Desert Schools. :)
