6 Quirky Things

Some time back, Heather tagged me to list 6 quirky things about myself. I'm a little late in responding but here it goes in no particular order!!!


1. I like to do my Bible study in blue ink. I write in my Bible in blue ink. The only reason I can think of is blue stands out among black text type. I prefer a gel type ink. But not too heavy or thick so it does not bleed through the pages. I'm particular on my blue pens.
2. This morning I put the gallon of milk in the cabinet instead of the refrigerator!!! I tend to do and say things backwards. I've told Bryan before to please put the plate in the dryer when I mean the dishwasher. He always teases me and says "Sure I will but I don't think that is where it goes."
3. I like to chew only 1/2 piece of gum. I like to think it is because my mouth/jaws are so small that a larger piece hurts, but I'm not sure!! :) I think some may say I don't have a small mouth.

4. I like ranch dressing on just about anything (veggies, pizza, buffalo chicken, mixed in salsa and many other options). And not just any ranch dressing. I prefer the ranch dressing from Mazzios. You can buy it from them in family size!!

5. I do not like it when people chomp ice! I've tried to overcome this as so many people (including Bryan) do it.

6. I have a Weekly House Clean grid/spreadsheet divided into days of the week. I do not like to clean on the weekend so I try very hard to get it all done by the end of Thursday. Not everything has to be done every week. Some items are done every other week!

Please don't think I'm too weird. And I'm sure my close friends and family can name a bazillion quirky things about me!!

not weird at all! i love your chart, do you mind sharing it or at least posting how you were able to divide things out evenly?
i have thought about doing something like that but could never come up with where to draw the line. when i clean (and do just about anything else) i like to finish when i start :)

I don't think your weird at all - I think your actually pretty normal.
Or we are both weird??????

Okay, I'm pretty sure I need a copy of that cleaning schedule. I'm sure it would help!! Since I've been out of commission with the 'ole knees, I'm pretty sure I need the cleaning lady to go along with the schedule :0)

Faith said...

Love your list. I am so with you on the pen thing - I only use blue and am very particular about what kind - the gum thing and the ice thing. You are not weird at all (at least not to me. ha!!)

I would LOVE to have a copy of your cleaning chart. Is it something you can email to me?

Candy said...

I'm with everyone else! You are NOT weird and I would LOVE a copy of your cleaning chart. :)
Hope ya'll are having a great week!

Betsy said...

I love that spreadsheet! I need one of those big time. My house has been pushed to the back burner for the past few busy weeks & is in need of a major cleaning right about now! And you are NOT weird! :)

Daddy Dale and Mommy Jen said...

Julie,
Thanks for sharing. The cleaning chart is a great idea. I would love for you to share it. With the twins, I have a hard time keeping up...

MiMi said...

I also only write in my Bible in blue ink and I am very particular about what KIND of pen because they can't "bleed" thru! Good to know that the one you pictured works good.
I also only chew 1/2 piece of gum and it drives my husband crazy! Makes a pack last twice as long that way, though!
I'm with you on the Ranch dressing, too, and I could definitely use the house cleaning chart!

Jenna said...

You are so not weird. I love your list!!! Your cleaning list inspires me!

valerie said...

I love your list & I don't think you're weird. Everyone should be so organized.

I buy the little squares of gum so I have to eat the whole thing.

I'm pretty bad about chomping ice. I don't do it loud with huge chunks. I like shaved ice. I went through a stage where I was really hooked on it. I hope I never did it when we went out to eat. (just kidding)

Kim said...

Wow! I wish I was as organized as you with my house cleaning!! Maybe then I could get everything done :)

The Hickman's said...

Wow- we have a lot in common just from those six things!! That chart is great!

Guyla said...

Julie, it's scary how much we have in common. :) I am very particular about my pens also, but I like black retractable medium point pens. I have put leftovers in the cabinet before instead of in the refrigerator. I do try to have some organized plan for keeping my house clean, but I'm not quite organized enough to have a chart like yours. I am a list person, though. I make lists for everything!

Megan L Hutchings said...

You are not weird at all! You are just Julie...perfect the way God made you.

I would LOVE a copy of that cleaning spread sheet ;).

Caroline said...

OH MY GOODNESS........JULIE I NEED THAT CHART...... LIKE REALLY BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kristen said...

These quirks make you even more adorable! I can totally picture you putting the milk in the cabinet...you are so funny!
Love the cleaning grid sister...I may need a copy of that at our next lunch/ dinner date!!

ocean mommy said...

Oh Girl!!! The pen thing...that is SO me! There is just something about "THE" pen....

HOpe you're having a great week!

Hugs,
steph.

Hi Julie Anne~
Who knew you were such a quirky little thing. How do you put a blog list on your page of the blogs you visit? I am so computer illiterate. At my crazy house someone would hide the chart. I keep a to do list in a binder, I would love to see your chart close up.
We need some serious prayers sent our way , I will explain later.

I love that chart and I used to do that, too. Now that I stay home, I take just one (week) day and do all the cleaning then...so we can have weekends free! Weekend cleaning is just the PITS! I loved hearing your quirks! Have a great (cleaning-free!) weekend!
