1. What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc.  -- I can't drink milk from a plastic cup.  I always put the tv volume on either a multiple of 5, or an even number; putting it on a prime number would drive me bonkers.

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write? -- almost always pen. When I do use pencil, it tends to be a traditional pencil, not a mechanical.

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite? -- Dreyer's/Edy's Outshine bars.  The lime is fantastic. 

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least? -- Zumba is my favorite.  Least favorite is burpees. I hate burpees with a passion.

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money? -- We are having one on 6/8. It's one hosted by our HOA, so we don't have to advertise or anything. It is the same weekend every year, and is always very well attended. it's the first time we've participated since moving into this house (in 2007).  My main goal is to declutter, but I'm hoping to make enough $$ that we can do a family weekend trip (amusement park or something) with it.  I've been gathering items for weeks already and have a huge staging area set up in the rec room so we're not doing it all the day before.

1. What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc. ( I can't function in a room with cabinet or closet doors left open. 2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write? Mostly pen. 3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite? Honey crisp apples and yoplait vanila Greek yogurt in the 100 calorie cartons 4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least? I like cardio/resistance classes. I don't really have a least, because if I hate it, I don't do it. 5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money? Our neighborhood has one every year. I usually participate if I can. We make in the neighborhood of $200, usually. Last year I didn't participate because I couldn't come up with enough stuff to bother with. This year we will probably be on vacation, which is sad because I have seven or eight cartons of stuff set aside already.

Pen

Before cutting down on my sugars and carbs, I would say Nutella

1.  What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc.  I can't stand to have anything on my neck, like a turtleneck or whatever.  It's one of the reasons I wear v-neck shirts all the time.

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write?  A blue pilot G-@ (10) pen, unless I'm doing math homework.  :)

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite?  Chobani pineapple greek yogurt.

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least?  I like walking and the elliptical.  I hate running and aerobics classes.

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money?  Never.  Way too much hassle.  I'd rather just give the stuff away or throw it away if it is in bad enough condition.  I don't buy a lot of crap to begin with though, so I don't have a ton of stuff I need to get rid of.

I like having my furniture catty-corner.  It drives DH crazy.  (All that wasted space!)

I love squats. That's one of the things my trainer has been working on with me - heavy lifting squats.  She went to a powerlifting tournament a few months ago and came back all excited about me doing heavy lifting, lol.   I've been planning to start the "30 day squat challenge" that's going around, but I'm having trouble getting started.

1.  What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc. (

I chalk most of mine up to reading to much Stephen King.  I can't walk by sewers or over sewers for example, "IT "anyone?

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write?

Depends, pen personally and pencil work wise.  Mechanical of course.  ;)

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite?

Hmm, I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least?

Walking and anything that requires me to move my arms/legs to the beat of music.

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money?

Only once and declutter.  Now I find it's easier to sell the stuff or just give it away to Goodwill.

Uggghh...I saw that too and WAS going to do that. Gave up after a few lol. I am sure if I did them everyday I would be fine but it is just starting them that is the killer.
