11. I don't love exercise. I make myself do it so that I can zip my jeans.
12. I love coffee - strong and black!
13. I went on one cruise - and was sick the entire time the boat was moving.
14. I LOVE the beach and once the hubs retires, we will become "snowbirds".
15. I was engaged to be married for 4 years to someone else (before hooking up w/the hubs). When we broke up, I returned my wedding dress and used the cash to buy a train ticket to Florida. Started dating the hubs 2 weeks later - we made a big bon fire with the matches and napkins that were printed for my called off wedding - lit it right in the middle of the street.
16. I have a secret stash of chocolate in my craft room.
17. I LOVE to laugh - in high school, I was voted to have the "best laugh". haha, right?

19. My mom is one of my best friends.
20. The beach - any beach - is my most favorite place to be in the whole world.
21. I love the sun and wicked miss it each winter.
22. I went to an airline career school - but never worked for an airline.
23. I have a nephew who plays in the NHL, for the Detroit Red Wings.
24. I have another nephew who died this past fall from a drug overdose. He left a note.
25. If I could do it over again, I'd go to college to become a teacher.
26. Maine lobster is my favorite food.
27. I have the worst skin of anyone I know and have had exzema on my hands since I was age 11.
28. I love my little house in the country.
29. I'd never feel right in a big, elaborate home.
30. My favorite color changes. Some days, it is red. I always love green though.
31. I need coffee and an occasional diet pepsi too.
32. I love music and listen to it all day long - especially when I'm scrapping.
33. I'm a positive, upbeat person.
34. One of my favorite movies is "The Titanic".
35. I am 5'7" tall.
36. I am the same size I was when I got married at age 24.
37. I love Yankees baseball.
38. I remind myself to think before I speak.
39. The hubs and I watch "The Wheel of Fortune" every week night. We call ourselves "Wheel Watchers". haha!
40. I do not like to gamble. I can't stand the thought of losing $$! I've never even bought a lottery ticket! Been to Vegas though - and had a fun time.
41. I've done some drugs. Before I was married. When I was telling the hubs that I was worried that both boys would be out on the road on NYEve, he said "oh come on...don't you remember???" I covered my ears!!! I did some bad shit.

Thank you, Patti! I used to have my age listed on my profile but my son mentioned one day that I was one of the oldest ladies on the message board! lol Maybe acceptance is the first step.

I too have a nephew that passed away almost 4 years ago (he lost control of his vehicle, hit a lightpole and died instantly.) My heart goes out to you and your family. His death left a hole in our family that will never be filled but the agonizing grief does subside over time.

Before I forget real quick,
Sherry, did I ever tell you that I studied Interior Design at Michigan State University?
It just didn't work out for me in the real world though.

I'm sorry about the depression. You're still designing, just in a different way!

I actually do not have a degree (I've only taken a couple of college courses in Accounting. yawn.)
I just had a passion and knack for decorating and was working in a gallery full of designers. The owner took me under her wing and pushed me out of my comfort zone and told me I could do it. She was right (much to my disbelief!) That was 14 years ago, and I'm still doing what I love!

12. I drive a Gold Dodge Minivan
13. I don't wear glasses or contacts anymore & I haven't had any corrective surgery either.
14. I met my husband back when we were 18, but I turned him down for a date back then. But, as fate would have it, we were getting fixed up to go on a blind date through different mutual friends when I recognized his name & agreed to go out with him 16 yrs later.

27. I hate my scrapbook room, which has knee walls so I can't even have taller shelves or cute artwork on the walls.

LOL!
28. I used to smoke & only experimented with cocaine at the persuasion of my then husband. No need to ask why he's the EX now, among so many other reasons. He's unhappily married to one of them now. (*snicker*)

Beth, I love Rascal Flatts! That's one concert that I want to go to, but no one in my family will go with me - lol! When they come to town, I might just have to go solo!

Oh, and since you like Country music, I'll share this with you. I heard an interview with Montgomery Gentry and they were saying one of their favorite fall things to do is to visit the Apple Orchard here in my little town. (We're about 2 hrs. from Nashville.) Anyway, even though I heard this interview several years ago, every single time I walk into the Orchard store to buy cider, I fantasize about running into Troy Gentry there - lol! Maybe one day..!

Oh Tracy!! How cool would that be, you never know who you might run into while sippin' cider then, eh?!!! Always have one of their CD's in your vehicle, just in case you get an opportunity for an autograph. Wink

I had an opportunity to go see Rascal Flatts a couple of years ago in a small arena close to me, before they got as big as they are now, but didn't take hubs up on his offer & now I wish I had. They were signing autographs for everyone afterwards. ugh!
