Wow now I’m so curious!  How do you get rugburns from stomach computing?

That’s a pretty good habit to break…I’m going on two years of limited mobility now due to neck and back problems that manifested 3 mos before I defended my PhD.  That’s what I get for ignoring the ergonomic warnings for 6 years of almost constant computer use.  Take care of your body!!

For bad habits, I’m not really actually trying to break any right now…except to relax more ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a popper.  If there’s a blemish, I like to pop it… and I’m trying really hard to not touch my face or arms (keratosis pilaris) until after the wedding.  I’m doing pretty well with it, with 24 days to go.  But who’s counting ๐Ÿ™‚

I have laptop elbow too! OMG! I thought it was just me….my left elbow gets all flaky and sore…I’ve been applying lotion and vaseline….lol.
My worst habit is that I’m an obsessive tweezer….not just the brows….everything…oh random black hair on my arm…buh bye….weird blonde hair on my neck…see ya!….I tweeze in the car on the highway….yikes

Bad habits? Don’t even get me started…

lap-top burn (it sounds like a serious ailment this way-on my elbows and forearms)

biting my nails (although disgusting i know, it’s a habit i’ve had since i was a kid)

smoking (i only do it on occasion especially when my FH is out of town)

eating-out (i need to lose at least 20# before my wedding [TBA] but need to start now)

injuries (or random scrapes and bruises occuring from work-need to be more careful :-D)

doubting (i KNOW my FH loves me-just nervous that he’ll find someone better than me)

How about just laying down a soft blanket or a sheet, so that the carpet doesn’t scratch you.  Ha, I can see you having a little laptop picnic in the middle of your living room…  ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, biting my nails, for sure. I’ve been making a real, concentrated effort since January when my best friend asked me to be her bridesmaid (she is always nagging at me not to bite them, and I told her nice nails were part of my wedding gift to her!) and when I knew my own engagement was forthcoming. This is the first time in my life I’ve really tried to stop. It is sooooooo hard! My nails look nicer than they ever have before in my life, but I still have the urge to bite them every day.

Grr… I have to quit smoking. Not for the wedding per se, but because it’s nasty and last I checked it’s not so great for your health. Luckily that’s about it, I think. Unless once I quit smoking I’ll discover that in my anxiety over quitting I failed to notice all of these other, equally debilitating habits of mine.

Oh man, I love popping pimples.  Sometimes I try to sneakily pop my husband’s….

Hehe, I thought I was the only one who loves pimples with an irrational passionate love. ๐Ÿ™‚ I definitely pop mine, though I try to be gentle on the ones on my face. My body grows doozies in under-normal-clothing places though, so I don’t have to worry about them looking sore or whatever after I pop them.

Any pimple poppers ever grossed out your husband/SO by trying to show him an exceptionally good one? I say it’s payback for some of his more dramatic farts.

I should have been a dermatologist! I knew Fiance was made for me when he gave me full access to his blemishes!
