100 Things About Me - A Unique Version

As most of you know (if you've really been reading my blog), I'm doing a 100 Things About Me "series." I will continue to do a few at a time until I hit the 100. In surfing around various blogs, I found a very unique/original version of the "100 Things" post at Untangling Tales. So, off I go . . .

  • No worries about money

(C) FIVE THINGS ABOUT MY FAMILY:

(J) TEN RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME:

  • I make lists of pretty much EVERYTHING (addresses, birthdays, anniversaries, likes, dislikes, things to do, etc.)
  • I rarely forget a birthday (thanks to #1 above)
  • My hair color is natural. I have NEVER colored my hair & don't have plans to start.
  • Music is therapy for me (so is blogging and scrapbooking).
  • I've never had a speeding ticket.
  • I haven't done anything that I planned to do in my life, which goes to show that God has BIGGER plans & He is in control.
  • I remember random bits of information and have been referred to as the "walking phone book" and/or "walking encyclopedia." (Okay, so I'm a 'nerd')
  • I'm a tv junkie. I have lots of "favorites," but I'll address that in another post.
  • I used to think I wanted children, but now I'm not so sure. I love them (and always will), but I'm not sure that's in God's plan for my life.

  • The ability to play any musical instrument I wanted.
  • At least one great vacation every year.
