Fun Fact Friday

I am stealing this idea from a funny blog I like to read. Each week I am going to list random facts about myself and my family. I have no illusions that this will actually make me funny, I just thought it would accurately portray what I talk about on a weekly basis to my husband.

* I cannot whistle. I have tried to learn and was even once on a whistle training regimen when I was 14, but I never succeeded.

* In the first apartment Travis and I lived in we had crazy upstairs neighbors named Alice and Spiro. They once threw a pig heart in the front lawn (apparently to feed the birds). We didn't know what it was and almost called the police to report it. But what do you say to the cops? There is a heart on my lawn and I don't know where it came from? Alice saw us looking at it and yelled down, "Don't worry, it's just a pig heart." Weird.

* Before we got our dog Josie (Basset hound Australian Shepard mix) I was not a dog person. (As in I did not like dogs. At all.) I call her the converter.

* I really hate to drive. So being a truck driver and driving for twelve hours a day sucked. Tell me again why I agreed to do that?

* Travis keeps telling me he wants to raise quail in our backyard and I can't tell if he's kidding or not. I mean, I think he's joking, but that's what I thought when he asked me to be a truck driver. Since then I can never tell when he's being serious or not. Or maybe I'm just scared he's being serious. Either way, NO QUAIL.

* Violet is waking up four or five times a night. (This is not funny, or FUN. Just a fact I wish I could edit to...Violet started sleeping through the night and now Lori gets to gain her sanity back! Doesn't that sound better?

I think I'm going to like Fun Fact Friday. Yet another outlet for my pointless stories. :)

More later,
P.S. My scanner isn't working so no picture of us graduating from trucking school. I hope to get it working soon!

P.S.S. I disabled the word verification so it is easy to leave comments again. You can just post as anonymous.
