Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

In case you have not noticed, I have issues..Many Many issues. 100% of my friends and family have known this for a while and thank God they love me unconditionally.

Let's see if I can name a few

1) I have a certain way I do laundry. Its just started since I have been married, but its my way. My ironing board is my dryer

2)I have to leave an hour early for work. Do not get in my way when I am ready to leave. If I am running late to work, I mentally freak out for at least an hour.

3)I am paranoid, more than the normal person. I know I have a problem. If I wasn't as paranoid, my life would be a lot less stressful.

4) I am not OCD. In fact, I am so unorganized, my father can not believe it. Its the only family gene I did not inherit.. I am not organized but I have certain things that must be done a certain way or dont even bother.

5)When making dates with friends, I prefer them to call me and ask because I am afraid if I try to set a gathering up, I will be rejected..I told you I had odd issues.

6)I am 32 and am still paranoid people wont like me. I am odd, I am loud but I am fun. I shouldn't care if people don't like me, but I do. I still try to impress strangers, which is sooo stupid.

7) I love to talk about myself, but I don't like people to ask questions about me. I'm not sure why, I have to be in the right mood to talk to people about myself..I love to hear about others though. I told you I was odd.

I am sure that my Michael can come up with a few more but since I said I wanted to get more personal on my blog, here ya go.

You know, I don't think that you're all that different than a lot of us out here! :) I think a lot of us have to have things "just so". I know I do. And even though I really do feel like it doesn't matter if people like me or not, it's always nicer when they do. :)

Stacie said...

We have a few things in common you and I...especially number 6!

debijeanm said...

WOW, except for the laundry thing we are very much alike. Do you think this paranoia thing is becoming part of the human fabric?

Jess said...

Hi Amy,
Thanks for the comment on my TT.

You and I have a lot in common regarding people. I have a social phobia. I hate going anwyhere by myself. I always think people will hate me or they will talk about me.

Just wanted to let you know you aren't alone.

I agree with the other comments in that we have numbers 2,4,5,6, and 7 in common! I even have an antisocial blinkie on my blog. Like Jess, I really cannot go anywhere alone and I always feel weird when I see people eating alone in a restaurant because I could never do that. It's nice to find out other people are secretly thinking these things too and thanks for stopping by my TT!

Cyndi said...

#6 is alot like me too. And BTW i like you!! i think you are great person.! :)

Ryan Velting said...

Well, some of your "oddities" really aren't that unusual...

Have to admit, I think I have a bit of OCD.. Be thankful you don't. Uh, for instance, I have this thing with even /odd numbers.. I prefer odd numbers. So much so that when I get gas, not only will I generally go to an odd numbered pump at the station, I'll stop the pump at $XX.01, or .03.. You get the idea.. Yes, and you thought YOU were strange!! lol

Michael said...

I can relate very well to numbers 5 and 6

Wendy Ann Edwina D'Cunha e Pereira said...

hey! all of us have issues... I am speaking from personal experience... I have them too & yours don't really sound odd... I guess I am equally "odd".

Kelly said...

Amy, As you can see with the other posters, you aren't all that odd. You are just truly honest.. I don't know if I could share some of those. I guess that is what makes me odd. I actually have to admit, some of those most be hereditary, since I have quite a few of them. The organization one is not a problem, but leaving and gettin somewhere on time is my biggest stresser, and when my DH could care less if we are 1 hour late, it makes it an even bigger problem. Hope that you have a great day.

Guess what? I used to be super-paranoid about what others thought of me...until my husband pointed out that most of them are so obsessed with what I'm thinking of them, that they are not thinking of me at all! Ha-ha!

That was pretty freeing.

Also, Galatians 1:10 was pretty clear...but maybe harder to live than it is to read.

unfortunately, most of your paranoias I can sign up to as well. Though my ironing board should be my dryer, everything shrinks
