THE NUMBERS GAME

Cassie from Primitive and Proper Blog  did a “ME in NUMBERS” post yesterday.
Taking a step back and reflecting on what really matters.
and she threw out the challenge for other bloggers to examine their selves…
in numbers as well.
I’m in..
….but I would like to put a different spin on it…
I agree…. there is an incredible POWER in numbers…
and I think we get bogged down in the numbers that
WE THINK
matter…when if fact, those numbers serve more as a distraction, even a deterrent,  to action.
Two in particular come to mind….
AGE and WEIGHT.
I know you KNOW what I am talking about.
SO here are MY NUMBERS…
now listen up….
Growing up…I attended 9 schools before college
In my whole life…I have lived in 6 states.
and 18 different houses
We have lived in our house 8 years…the longest I have ever lived in any single residence…
I have 3 children 3 dogs and 3 cats
birthdays
My daughter and I have our birthdays on the 30 of our months.
I have 3 brothers and 0 sisters
My son Tate, my Mom, my Mother in law and my Older brother, ALL, in their respective months
 have the 8th as their Birth Day
and Tate’s is actually 8-8, August 8.

My Brother, my Father-in-law and my Sister in law  all share the birthday March 29.
2 + 9 = 11
My husbands birthday was the other day, Oct 3, 10/3 , 10 x 3 = 30
and My Dad’s birthday was the 3rd of August  .
8 + 3 = 11
My youngest sons birthday is September 11!
It would seem that my youngest brother, Mallory, is the only one with a lone birthday..
that is….until you add it up. His birthday is April 25
4-25
4+2+5= 11

I LOVE THIS!!!

I am certain I have killed 100,000 stink bugs in the last few weeks!!!
what numbers keep popping up in your life???do you have LUCKY numbers?

Happy FALL
Happy Friday
TGIF

  1. Numbers ARE interesting. Years ago I saw a numerologist and they fully believe the numbers tell all.

    After moving out on my own, I have lived in 18 different places, with no more than 2 year boundaries at each place. One home was 4 years, but I was divorced right in the middle so it became “my” home then. This current place is on year 2, so we shall see … It always seemed gypsy-ish, like Juliet Binoche in Chocolat.

    Also for the past years noticing repeats or sequences in numbers happens All The Time. Stuff like:
    clock 12:34
    thermostat/clock 12:34-65-78
    odometer 111111 or 111213 or 121212 or 122222
    tripometer/clock: 135.0 2:46
    you get the idea.

    Stink bugs .. omg!

  4. My birthday is 10-4… but I certainly choose to not think of it as “over and out!!!” LOL As for repetitive numbers, we either lived in a location (this is since my married life) for 2 or 4 years. However, the last two locations have been 9.5 (yes, that matters as I couldn’t wait to leave so I was always aware of the length of time living there) and 10 years. I certainly enjoyed your recounting (pun intended) your numbers… great way to get to know you!
