Honest Scrap Award

Lorena of My Every Day Wear was so kind to give me the Honest Scrap Award. With this award it is asked I tell you 10 honest things about myself.

1. I don't cut my own meat.
2. I don't use alarm clocks. I had to briefly from July 1997- Feb 1999 but not before or sense.
3. I use my mouse left handed.
4. I have a hard time letting things go. (getting MUCH better)
5. My mother and I didn't get along for say oh 28 years but now she gets me better than anyone and she is the only person I want to call when I am sad.
6. I have two dads. I am lucky and had two opposite male role models.
7. My grandparents had a VERY big part in my upbringing and because of that we are closer than most people and their grandparents.
8. When I was 16 my mom, dad and grandparents chipped in and I got to go on a school trip to England, France, Switzerland and Germany. The trade off was I had to take AP European History and join Key Club and Model UN.
9. I don't think I want to return to grad school. I still haven't actually told them either. (the school)
10. My mom and I used to "make our own groceries"(its a book) dandelion wine, Ketchup, BBQ Sauce. We'd make anything we wanted at that moment.

Thank you again Lorena I really appreciate it.

You don't cut your own meat? Why's that? And hi!

welp as a kid I was very squeamish and got freaked out knowing meat was animals. But my mom made me eat meat because I anemic so she'd cut it up small so it was easier for me to handle and it was something she just kept doing and then a boyfriend picked up on doing it then dave. Like if we are at say Thanksgiving dave will take a big piece and give me small pristine pieces without fat or gross stuff on it.
I have this HORRIFIC gag reflex and once it starts I have a hard time stopping. So childish but its just what I have known and am comfortable with. I didn't even realize people thought anything of it until recently somsone ate dinner with us and notices.

Hey Hillary, thank you for taking the time...
You know I have a "thing" with meat/chicken too... I can´t eat anything that I see a bone on.... my H has to take it out for me :)

hillary said...

oh I can't even LOOK at the bone. I feel ya on that. omg do I. My mom and husband will read this and laugh their asses off because they have experienced me freaking out.

Lorena said...

Ha ! I am sooo glad I am not the only one !
People look at me funny but I have to accept that once they know they try to "comply" with my requests...

How cute! Maybe I should have my husband start cutting my chicken for me! I don't eat mammalian meat anymore :(

hillary said...

Ms. B I eat chicken, turkey and ham and thats it. Mostly cause I am squeamish and because red meat and regular pork give me horrible migraines.

I don't use an alarm clock either. Isn't it liberating??
