100 Things

  1. I was born in Bad Axe, Michigan on January 14th, 1977.  Or so I thought until my husband corrected me when applying for our marriage license that I was actually born in Colfax Township.  This is still correct.
  2. I love the way my birth date sounds when I say it.  This is still true and I think birthdays are super important and always will. 
  3. I love to cook.  This is also still true although now I feel like I don’t have as much time to do it that I would like.
  4. My mom thought that would never happen and still won’t compliment me when I cook something.  Not true, she will compliment me now.
  5. My mom is either in constant competition with me or does/says things I like to be closer to me when I really just want to push her away.  All the time.  I can’t stand it or change it.  She is still this way but I don’t push her away as much and our relationship has changed for the good.
  6. I forgot how to spell competition when I typed it for # 5 and that will bother me for a good 24 hours.  What a LAME number 5, but anyway, I rely too much on spell check and probably drive some of my readers NUTS.  I often (offen, hehehe) misspell awry as arye as in Ahhh…rye bread.  But spell check doesn’t catch it and I am an idiot and rye bread IS good.  🙂
  7. I really do love my mom, I adored her until 1994 and then it went down hill from there.  This is true but it is much better!
  8. I really want to be a Real Estate Agent but I’m too scared.  I love houses.  This is still true but HELLO we are not in an economy for me to just be TRYING new things.  Blech.
  9. FInishing school is only important to me so I can say I did.  Hmmm, not so true but I am going to finish even if I’m 45.  I actually just discussed this with Rob last weekend.
  10. My favorite drinks are the following:  Coors Light, martini, red wine, sangria, bloody mary.  Now it’s just mostly red wine and beer.  I have not had a martini since Luke has been born.  Odd.
  11. Bed covers must always be in the appropriate order for me to sleep soundly.  STILL TRUE.  I have sort of changed Rob a bit.   See #62 and also how I messed up awry again.
  12. I can always sleep.  Except when I’m on vacation.  I’m not sure because I haven’t been on a vacation in awhile.  Boo.
  13. I want to start a recipe blog.  Never gonna happen.  Too lazy.
  14. I make up nicknames for people, not on purpose, they just flow out naturally.  Not so true anymore, I think I’ve lost my touch.
  15. I love computers!
  16. I wear my heart on my sleeve. 
  17. I like to read blogs. 
  18. If I find a good one I’ll read it like a book, from the beginning.
  19. I love to read, I wish I had more time to do it.  STILL TRUE!
  20. I collect books.
  21. I want a book shelf in every room of my house.  Still working on that.
  22. I’m trying to get pregnant, I’m afraid it won’t happen for us!  IT HAPPENED!!
  23. If I have a daughter, I want to read her all of the books I read as a child; for example Anastasia Krupnik.  I don’t think I’m going to have a daughter.
  24. My mom used to have to bribe me to play with friends because I was always reading.
  25. I bet she regretted that after I discovered boys and the roller rink.  I bet she regrets more the boys I discovered.  I know I do.  You must highlight to read.
  26. I will put a pull down United States map in my childrens rooms.  THIS IS DONE!!!  Although we (Rob) wish it was a World Map. 
  27. I could read a cook book for hours.
  28. I don’t even want to open the Joy of Cooking cookbook I got for Christmas.  I LOVE that cookbook.
  29. I break bones easily.  Knock on wood.
  30. I use Tide w/ bleach.  No, now I buy what’s on sale.
  31. I heart the downy ball.  Yep, still making out.
  32. I hate folding laundry.  Yes, still do but it’s even more torturious to watch Rob fold laundry.  He thinks our closet is The Gap.
  33. Not as much as I hate returning bottles.  Not as much as I hate NOT returning them and having a LARGE collection.
  34. Apple Cinnamon Glade candles are my favorite.
  35. I hate all vanilla smells unless it’s a car air freshener, then I like it.

  46. That has VERY sad moments.  IT DOES.
  47. I would like a penguin for my birthday please.  PLEASE!
  48. I could beat anyone at Friends Trivia.  It would not be fun to play with me.  I’m lame and old.  If I’m still blogging in 20 years this will HISTERICAL to read.
  49. I rock at Shuffleboard.  Hmmm, probably still do, maybe we will go there for my bday.

  70. I’ve fired one person.
