7 Things Tag

I was tagged by my pal Ashtyn so here it goes...

7 things you may or may not know about me:

1. I feel old. I know it's pretty ridiculous at my age. Devin and I have been married for almost 5 years and that seems like a long time to me! I'm 22, married with 2 kids, own a house, a minivan, have 2 dogs. That's all so...grown up! It's just weird, but I'm slowly coming to reality. I don't know what I'm gonna do when I get wrinkles!

Devin is here looking over my should and read what I just typed and said, "Ruthann..." like he thinks I'm crazy. Yep, it's okay. I think I am too.

2. I wish I could say I was voted something cool in high school. I really would have liked "best dressed," or "nicest smile" or "most likely to be successful." But my senior year I was voted "heart braker." Geez. I still don't really know what that's supposed to mean...any ideas? Please let me know.

3. Thanks to my Dyson I am obsessed with vacuuming. I really like the house clean anyway, and vacuumed really often before the Dyson came into my life, but I think it has now become an obsession. No, I don't know if it's that 4 days a week serious?

4. I'm scared to dive into a pool. There is just something about going head-first into water that scares me. Devin has tried to help me, but I just can't get myself to do it.

5. I had breast implants! I know a lot of people thought I did and I always said I didn't, but it's true.

6. I don't like chocolate chip cookies or brownies. I've been told it's "un-American." Yuck. And I don't really like cakes either. I love ice cream and pies, fruit pies, not cream pies.

7. I have an Associate of Arts degree and plan on getting my Bachelor degree, but I can't decide what to major in. I always loved my math and biology classes, but honestly, I don't want to do something that hard! Lazy, huh? I also LOVED speaking Spanish when I took it in college, but that's pretty hard too. Interior design really interests me and so does psychology and they don't seem as serious. I really challenge myself to take something I really enjoy? Or still go for something that interests me, but I'm not really passionate about?

Then there is the issue of what kind of job I could get with the degree. With Devin being a teacher, I don't really want a job where I have to work in the summer because he'll be off! And, since I don't plan on working until the kids are in school, I've got time to decide...

Okay, number 5 is NOT true. I have NOT had breast implants. People really have asked me thought so I thought it'd be funny to see if people believed me. Did you?

Since that one was a fake, here's a real number 5...

5. I think I'm getting dummer. I hear and say words like, "potty" and "diaper" and "don't smoosh your brother!" all day long. I feel like I need more intellectual stimulation. That's what got me thinking about #6 in the first place.

Wow, I just realized how I spelled dumber up there. Point proven.

Don't worry about the feeling old. Sometimes I feel like I'm playing house. When I was teaching school, I felt like I was playing school. Are we really this grown up--houses, kids, husbands, etc? Sometimes I can't believe it. And when I visited my old ward in Utah a couple weeks ago, it blew me away that a family I used to baby-sit now has a 19-year-old daughter and their son just was ordained a teacher. That girl was 6 and he was 1-1/2 when I baby-sat them! It's hard to imagine those parents as parents of young adults and teens when I only knew them as "young parents". Yikes! Why do we have to get old??

Jeannie and Jason said...

This post was grrreat. So funny. Okay, so when I read your little scam about having breast plants, I literally yelled out, "I knew it!" Then I got to the had me. I am like flat as a board now, and do you remember how I needed a bra when I was like 10? What the hell happened to me? Anyway,loved this post. Oh, and sorry I never completed your who's lazy?

The Stevens Family said...

haha! I really didn't know what to think about the implants. I kept thinking.. really?? lol I definitely think you should do something you are passionate about, that way you will be happy, proud, and enjoy doing what your doing. Don't waste life. The only thing we get to take from this life is knowledge. So learn all you can. :)

Austin and Ashtyn said...

haha that cracks me up you feel old. I agree that I feel like I am playing house too. I sit back and think, is this really my house? Am I really married with a one year old (next month cant even beleive it) Time flies by! And the getting dumb thing, I can totally relate! I want to go back to school and take a few classes just to interact with adults and excersice my brain a little bit. So I signed up for 2 classes this semester and since we live in good ol Pinal county we have to pay out of county tuition. Its like 800 dollars a class to attend Chandler/Gilbert!! Um no thank you! Its so ridiculious!

Jami said...

first of all, I didn't believe you had a boob job! I guess it is b/c I already talked with you about it. But you have nice boobs!
Also, I think you should go for the degree you are passionate about.
I didn't do nursing for a long time b/c I thought it was to hard. Now I am doing it a class at a time and I LOVE IT! It is nice to get out of the house, and use my brain.
Start with just one or two easy classes to get you back into the game, then take a harder one.

Fiery Jack said...

Haha. Dumber. Ha.

You had me with #5. And I thought.. "but why?"

And gee, you're old. I've only been married 6 months, but i'm older than you. ok, ok, i kid.

That's all.

Tracy said...

oh Ruthann you are gorgeous and are going to look young forever.

My mom had her kids super early and would often get comments of people thinking her oldest daughter was her sister! - that will probably be the case for you too! AND you will be the hot mom that your boys friends will be in love with :)

The Bottjer Family said...

Ha hah. You are funny. You're a little trickster. You are not even OLD! I'm trying to embrace my wrinkles (or rather get rid of them). I think finishing school is a good idea, do something that you're passionate about, even if it doesn't lead to doing it as a career. That way you at least will have a skill in something you like. I don't think vacuuming is a bad obsession (but look who you're talking to!)

Kiera said...

hahahaha you got me! As i'm sure you figured by the text I sent! That's hilarious:) Well Thw heart Breaker means your awesome and will break a lot of men's hearts! Duh! :)... Time goes by so fast after having kids, I feel old to like everything just happened out of nowhere! So fun though!
You should go to school:) for anything! I bet you'd love anything! Interior design school is a blast, but I don't know about jobs after!
haha That is a lot of vacuuming but you have dogs! Steve loves vacuuming to haha... There must be something about it!

Connie (and Tony) said...

lol -loved it. When I read no 5, I was like "she's my hero" but it turned out to be untrue- but you're still my hero. This post was funny!

Molly said...

SO FUNNY! I love my dyson too. Its the best. ugh, i wish I had breast implants. after nursing my boobs look like empty sacks. sad face. Lucky me, the hubster only cares about my backside. ha ha.

Brooke said...

Ok, I was going to be so shocked that you had lied to me for all this time. Thanks heavens I don't have to call you a liar. We can still all be jealous of you that yours are natural, and we all wish we had them. P.S. How old do you think I feel??? Miss 4 kids. At least I don't have a minivan....that would have put me over the hill!!!
