100 Things About Me

So it seems in the blogging world on the 100 th post you are suppose to write 100 things about yourself.
Well this should be pretty easy because I like any excuse to talk about myself. So here it goes:

1. I have 4 kids and have been married for nine years. My kids are 2,4,6, and 8. I am done having kids, I am at my limit.

2. We were married in December and I became pregnant in January. And yes the months added up right .

3. I married my boss. Oh boy! That sounds bad.

4. I grew up in Maryland.

5. Then I lived in Georgia for about 7 years.

6. We then moved to Helena, MT for 2 year 1/2 years and then Bozeman, Mt for 2 1/2 years . And only went skiing 1 time. But I did go snowmobiling and that was great.

7. In 9 years I have lived in 8 houses. Yes, a lot of moving around.

8. I went to 3 different colleges and still didn't get a degree. I could never figure out what I wanted to be. I guess it was to be a mom, and there isn't a degree for that.

9. In 18 years (oh no, I can not believe I have been driving that long) , I have owned 13 cars. My favorite was my corvette. Those days are over with 4 kids. Believe it or not my husband has owned more. I guess we share a love for cars. How sad.

15. I like to exercise.

16. I am cheap.

17. This goes with the one above. My husband colors my hair, and no, he is by no means a hair colorist. But he does an o k job and it saves us a lot of money.

81. My BFF is Beth . We spend almost every afternoon hanging out with our kids and talking about blogging. Life is good.

92. Once when my husband and I got together he wanted me to read a map. I told him I couldn't. He said,"Oh yes you can." So I tried and we ended up going the wrong way. Thank goodness I have a G.P.S. now.

93. All 4 of my kids name start with the letter C. We want our kids to be connected in every way. My husband's family and my family are not that close. We want our kids to be very close and always be there for each other.

94. It is very important to me that my kids are well behaved. Of course we have some good days and some bad days. But when I get compliments on my kids behavior I feel like at least I am doing something right.

95. I will never take 4 kids on a plane again until they are 18. My third child acted like the girl in the exorcist. All he needed was pea soup to fly out of his mouth. Needless to say I was very embarrassed.

96. I love American Idol.

97. My husband says I stink at mowing the grass because I scalped it. I was just trying to help. He is now helping me with this, because I can not think of anything more to write about myself.

That was a fun read! :)

As for changing the date of your post. When you are in edit mode, the bottom left corner there is a "post options" button written in blue. YOu can click on that and change the date. :)

That was fun to read. I'm way behind 100 post, does that mean I have to post 200+ things about myself... LOL!

I'm an only child also.
I get motion sickness.
My 3rd child hates to fly. She threw up everywhere on our last flight.
I lived in Maryland for a short time (lived in Gaithersburg and Rocksville).


Kristina said...

I throw up when they "pan" in movies. Like the start to Braveheart. Forget it. But, planes and boats don't bother me.

Also, In 10 years of marriage, we have lived in 5 states, Washington D.C. and 10 houses. We like to move, too!

I'm sorry about your dad. It's rough.

Thanks for sharing!
