  77. I would love a makeover.
  78. Unless frumpy clothes and bohemian hair come into style, in which case I will be completely da’ bomb.

  88. I want to make a quilt… even though I’ve started two and never finished them… and don’t even know where they are any more.

  97. I do not lie about my age.
  98. I am just as likely to text my teenager as I am to walk up the stairs and ask her something.

  100. And miracles.
  101. I am blessed.

11 Responses to “101 Things About Me”

    Wow! How long did it take for you to come up with that list? I may try that myself but it looks like hard work.

    • 2 carol June 17, 2009 at 6:50 pm

      I never comment on blogs but I had to write you and tell you how much I enjoy reading yours! It kind of sucked me in and hasn’t let go! And as I read your 101 things, I was astounded at how many of those apply to me! Wow, I don’t even know you but we are so much alike! For instance, I am a Scorpio. I didn’t get my license until late in life (later than you) and I can’t drive a standard. I HATE small talk and snapping gum – the latter causes me to think murderous thoughts about the person doing it. I adore reading but find I just want to fall asleep at the end of the day when I finally pick the book up. My son is in Tae Kwon Do, he joined at age five and I also hate to watch him spar. He is now ten and has his junior black belt. I still hate to watch him spar! I freckle and burn as well. Sometimes I burn in “patches” on my body. Very strange! I am also horrible at computer games and have killed every plant I was ever in charge of (some of them weren’t even mine!).
      I will continue to read your blog now that I have found it and perhaps some day will meet you at a Tae Kwon Do tournament. I will look for the lady who appears as though they want to run into the ring as her daughter spars (that could be a few people I know now that I think about it).
      Good luck with your job search – keep writing, you are awesome!
