Day 1-Introduce, recent picture, 15 interesting facts

Alright- without adieu, here is

Day 1-Introduce, recent picture, 15 interesting facts:

My name is Casey. I am in my late thirty's yet I SWEAR I can't be a day over 19 and I have the hormonal acne to prove it. I have been with my wiff (not quite my wife- YET)Mic for hmm.. 5 years now. Woah. 5 YEARS! huh! We met in the most rooomaannntiiicc way.. online. And, actually, I was too cheap (read: broke) to get my own account, so I had a friend at the time contact her for me. Somehow she fell for that. We live in a little house in Milwaukee. I am a total coupon addict, and like sewing and folk art rug hooking. Gah... I sound like a grandma, don't I?

The reason I have decided to start this 30 day blog challenge is because Mic and I are licensed foster to adopt parents. We have been waiting for placement for 5 months. I didn't think I would be waiting for longer than 5 days. I think I have completely driven myself insane with over thinking and SURE I am jinxing ourselves from ever receiving placement.

So - I need to keep myself busy.

Lets move on:
15 Interesting Facts:
  1. I kissed my first boy at bible camp. That boy went on to manage bands that primarily plays in strip clubs.
  2. I used to sell sex toys at home party's.
  3. I used to work in a head shop.... and a porn video rental place...which also had tanning.
  4. My first girlfriend was married. The relationship included him... for about 3.5 minutes... then she moved out.
  5. I cry at almost every James Taylor song
  6. I also worked in a funeral home.. as well as repossessed cars. I have had more jobs than you have underwear.
  7. I never graduated college.
  8. I didn't get my drivers license until I was 18... but my parents let me drive myself to work when I was 16.
  9. I miss driving a mini van. I have owned 3.
  10. The best memories I have of my dad are riding on the lawnmower with him cutting the huge backyard singing at the top of our lungs. "OH I WISH I WEEERRRRE... AN APPLE ON A TREEEEEE" .. and "AND IF YOU ASKED HER WHY THE HECK SHE WORE IT.. SHE WORE IT FOR HER LOOVEERR WHO WAS FAAAR FAAR AWAY!!!" We had an awesome set list.
  11. I have some crazy thyroid condition that I thought, once I got under control, would make me skinny. That has yet to happen.
  12. As much as I pretend I don't... I really do love camping. I just wish we had a trailer of some sort... it doesn't have to be fancy at all. Just up off the ground a bit.
  13. I can't cook. Unless you want noodles, grilled cheese, or hamburger helper.
  14. I haven't ruled out the possibility of becoming a nun - especially if Mic dies before I.
  15. I am tired.
Okay-- I am supposed to put a recent picture here. I think I have to go take one... it will be fancy.. with my phone, don'cha know.

I realized I didn't take a picture last night so I took one this morning... For some reason it is making me laugh..

I can't quite hear the tune to that lawn mowing song. You'll have to sing it to me sometime.
There was something else I was going to comment on and I've already forgot. Must have been a lie.
Gosh, I miss you.

Amy said...

Oh-!!! The camping thing. Ugh, hate it. The closest I get is a cabin.

You are too funny! You repossessed cars?! Isn't that scary shit!

Now, where's that picture? *tapping my foot impatiently over here*

I love camping too! Ash and I bought a junker tent trailer last year (but it's cute to us) and we go as often as possible. This year we decided if Ash got preggers (which she is, score for me) we'll get a semi new (ok, a step above a junker) tent trailer that will be easier for Ash to put up because ummm I don't do the manual labor stuff.

I met my girl online, too! I miss the days when myspace was the coolest thing around :)

Loralou said...

Haha at that picture! Did you just get out the shower?

Mark said...

But I do want grilled-cheese! You're girl after my own heart.
I'd like to see you as a Nun.
Your Friend, m.

Mark sent me here to visit you and I'm so glad that I stopped by!

Amy said...

That is a recent picture? I KNOW why you chose it.

Amy said...

one more thing and then I SWEAR I'll leave you alone.

"I'm in my late thirty's." You don't know EXACTLY how old you are, do you?? ;)

After this shitastic day I've had. Re-reading this made me laugh...and cry.
