1. I have very high expectations of myself, in everything I do, even making a list of 25 Random Things
2. I wish I was a brunette - but I'm too lazy to dye my hair so I'll deal
3. I obsess about whether I obsess too much, I think I might need medicine
4. Of all of the blessings in my life, I count my husband to be the biggest
5. I never imagined life would be like this, for the most part for the better
6. My biggest fear is *people* and what they are capable of - from simple ridicule to the stuff you see in horror films
7. Speaking of horror films, I don't dig it, even the trailors give me nightmares
8. I am not a mom that nags about candy or television or bed time...sometimes I think that's good, and sometimes Super Nanny makes me feel guilty
9. I think "never" is a very dangerous thing to say
10. My Grandma died in November and I don't know what to think about it all yet

17. I lack athleticism to the point that it is laughable
18. My pet peeve is being asked what my 'favorite' is...color, movie, book...just annoys me to my core - a seriously ridiculous concept in my mind
19. I could eat cookies and milk for every meal for 100 years, you could say they're my *favorite* but that would be going too far
20. I spent a summer in college living in Mexico amongst the poor and it changed my life

24. The most profound concept I've ever learned is 'grace'

I love it! I really wish the time/space continuum didn’t keep us from being closer… I can relate to a lot of that. And, I am going to show Matt because I have been trying to convince him to let me get someone to clean our house!
