I'm Back

So yes, I'm here, again. The holidays hit me and I think my brains been on a summer vacation ever since. My mom and my sister both tagged me in this game, but since I'm so far behind and really don't have anyone to tag going forward, I'll just do this half way. Apologies in advance...

The Rules:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then
create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4. Tag (eleven?) people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!
Eleven (Fun) Facts About Me:
1.I don't really like chocolate all that much
2. I prefer to drive a manual over an automatic
3. I cannot back a trailer. I once had to have a friend leave work to come get me out of a parking lot because I thought I could make a U-turn and got stuck.
4.I love plants! I want a plant nook in my house, maybe right next to my reading nook. I'm jealous of my mom's plant nook! (I guess that's what they're called...)
5. I'm a neat freak. I STRICTLY follow "If you get it out, put it up. If you open it, close it," etc. And I mean STRICTLY.
6. I make my bed every morning
7. I love teaching dogs tricks. They all have it in them, you just have to have patience!
8. I really don't like cats.
9. I'm gifted in grammar and punctuation. I can't explain the rules, they all just come naturally.
10. I play the violin/fiddle, depending on your upbringing.
11. I prefer emptying the dishwasher over loading it. I genuinely enjoy unloading the dishwasher. It's like a little game. I hate loading it. I hate touching dirty dishes.
