Tag, you're it

Mae was kind enough to tag me with this little meme which has given me blog material for today. Thanks, Mae!

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own post about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here are the random things:
1. I have very wide feet. Although I am shoe-obsessed, I rarely wear anything other than my two or three pairs of really wide shoes. This makes me sad.

2. I love Venice. I have no idea why, exactly, but I want to go there so badly that it makes my teeth hurt.

3. I also love New York City. I did get to go there once, but only for a couple of days. I need to take Mick back there for closer to a week. **sigh**

4. I still sleep with a teddy bear. His name is Ted and he was given to me by a college boyfriend.

5. I am not much for sweets and could easily give up chocolate forever. Seriously.

6. I'm pretty sure that I have a mild form of OCD because I seriously spend like an hour after the cleaning people come through putting everything back exactly where it's "supposed" to be. I did this over the weekend, too, as my MIL kept moving things around, leaving doors ajar, etc.

7. I am horribly shy. It is an effort for me to meet new people just because I'm deathly afraid that they won't like me. I think this comes from elementary school where I was tormented for being different. (You try growing up with an English mother!)

8. I am afraid of what will happen when Mick comes home and there aren't any big adventures waiting for us around the corner. When it's just us and we have the beautiful, lovely, new townhouse and he's retired from the Navy and the cats have all settled in for life, how will we feel about each other? Will we bore each other? Will he be sloppy and irritate the life out of me? Seriously, I think about this all the time.

I don't like tagging others, so I'll just say that I'd love to read more about each of you, so think about it.

I know what you mean about chocolate. All the cocoa beans in the world could vanish, and I would never notice. Cheese, however, is another story!

Thanks for sharing about you. I really enjoyed.

Tis done. How are you holding up?
