Meme

I've been tagged by MomX2 to list 5 unimportant things about me.

Rules:
1- you link back to the person who tagged you
2- post these rules on your blog
3- share six unimportant things about yourself
4- tag random people at the end of your entry
5- let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blogs

Let's begin.

1- I have been a licensed U.S. Customs (now known as Customs and Border Protection) broker since 1996. I have not used this license since...1996. I left brokerage for ocean transportation at that time, but still keep the license current.

2- I like to vacuum right before guests arrive so the lines are still on the carpet (mainly in the guest room).

3- I obsess over thank you notes. Thanks mom! My children now have their own stationery (monogrammed, of course!) and mini#1 will be writing his first "thank yous" after his birthday party this weekend. It's time to pass the torch to the minis...

4-I have a strange memory. I can remember exactly what I was wearing to an insignificant event years ago and even conversations that took place, but I can't remember where my sunglasses are on a daily basis.

5- I hate change. Not good with it at all. I'm a creature of habit. Trying not to pass this character trait (flaw?) to my boys.

6- When I go to the grocery store I have to pick a gallon of milk about 2-3 back from the first one. For some reason I don't think the first one is getting enough refrigeration.

Ok, now I tag the following:

I get the milk out of the back, too. The front ones just aren't cold enough. ;)

I laughed out loud at #2. And I could have written #4, 5, and 6. Especially #4 - I remember high school friends' birthdays - the ppl I haven't seen since high school. But I don't think I have a "photographic" memory. I think I just have a capacity to remember inane things.

Belle- Glad it's not just me. On clothes/shopping,now my older son is starting to get a little picky about clothes. Oh no! He didn't like the navy sweater I bought yesterday! Well he's wearing it and liking it. :)
Mom- me, too. I remember stars' birthdays and birthplaces, etc. So stupid to waste brain space on that! Can't help it.
