Apparently today is just a day full of finding out fun little facts about Kelly. In case you missed my post earlier today, you can check it out here. I wasn’t planning on writing this post, but when I saw it on Helene’s blog I loved the idea so much I couldn’t wait to join in the fun. Plus it was exactly a two years ago today that I wrote a post full of random details about me. All of which are still true. Anywho, I wanted to share a few more fun facts that you probably don’t know about me.
- The only thing I can do before I brush my teeth in the morning is take a shower. Even if I’m just going to go lay back in bed and watch TV, when I’ve decided that I’m up for the day I will go brush my teeth right away.
- I’ve had eczema since I was really little. It seemed to go away when I was in high school but started acting up again a few years after graduation. It’s mainly on my legs and I have a pretty heavy-duty steroid cream that keeps it from acting up as long as I use it ever few days and am careful with things like soaking in the tub for to long to often.
- I don’t know how to swim. If I can’t touch every so often it’s pretty much guaranteed that I’m going to drown. My parents put me in group and private swim lessens at a few different ages and it just never took. I think it’s a combination of me being a slow learner and letting my fear get the better of me. I’m convinced that I’m going to die by drowning. You would think this would be enough for me to learn how to swim, but apparently it’s not.
- I was held back in the 4th grade. I was delayed in reading and having to attend special classes so my parents decided to hold me back. The school fought my parents on it, but in the end my parents won. I was given the option of staying at my current school or transferring to a different school in our district, the school my little sister went to (not every school in town had a life skills class so she went to a different school). I decided to transfer schools so that no one had to know. Of course once we got into middle school those two schools combined into one and word got out.
- Driving over bridges give me anxiety. What if somehow I end up driving off the bridge and my car goes into the water. Not only can I not swim, but what if my seat belt gets stuck and I can’t get out of the car? The only way I’m comfortable driving over a bridge is if I’m in a car that isn’t tall enough for me to see over the sides of the bridge or if I’m in the middle lane if it has more than two lanes.
What are some things that we might not know about you?
