5 little known tidbits about me

I was "tagged" by a friend on her blog to put 5 little known facts about me on my blog. So...after a lot of thinking, here's what I came up with.

1. I have to sleep with blankets on me....even in the summer I need some kind of blanket. I just can't sleep well without being covered.

2. I have to shop for shoes in the kid's section. Once in a while I get lucky and can find a small pair of shoes in the "grown up" section...but not very often.

3. I am afraid of the dark....especially of being home alone at night. I absolutely hate walking past our big window in the living room at night!

4. When I eat m&m's, I first dump out the entire bag, then put them in groups by color, and then eat one color at a time. WHY???????

5. I am a tad bit obsessed with being organized. I make lists constantly. I label things with my handy label maker. I have labeled bins and containers for everything (even my kids' toys). I color code activities on my calendar. I am constantly reorganizing closets, cupboards, and drawers. I have files (labeled with that label maker) for everything. I even do the same kind of organizing in my classroom. I'm pretty sure it's a sickness. Just ask my family! it's your turn (I'm supposed to tag 5 people...but I'll just tag whoever feels like playing along)...what are 5 little known tidbits about YOU?!?!

Ok - I'll play along. Check out my blog on Saturday, and I will post my 5 facts. As a sneak preview, I will just say "ditto" to your number 5! It must be a first child thing! :)

Hmm... I am thinking hard but struggling to find 5. I totally agree on the being covered at night though!

Maybe you are right! Amy, as you know, I am firstborn also. I separate my M&M`s by color, then must eat a handful containing one of each color.Next group, one of each color and etc.

I'm with you on being covered, no matter how hot it is. M&M's - I don't separate, but I used to eat a handful consisting of one of every color. Bak when they had browns, I used to eat those first to get them out of the way. I still decide what is my fav. food on the plate and save that for the last bite.(Does that count as 1 for me?)
