The List

I like lists and recently I found this list on line and thought it was a great way to start a trip. things to ask each other while traveling, we will be going to visit one of our sons soon, so I am sharing it here with you in case you have a long trip in the near future.

Enjoy.
30 Things:
To spice things up a little I will be posting something random about myself each blog (or close to it for a month) according to the following list of questions I have conjured up. 

The idea is to record different parts of my personality for my posterity, and I guess you get to know me better by default.  I think this'll be super fun and I invite you to play along! I would LOVE to read what you have to say about yourself in regards to these questions, and get to know you better, too.  

This could potentially be very hilarious.
I'm also thinking this list would make a fun date night?

1. I have loved history since I was 4 or 5 years old, and have never found it to be boring. When I was in around 3rd or 4th grade, I read everything about the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln that I could get my hands on.

2. When I was growing up I wanted to either be a paleontologist or an archeologist.

3. One of my favorite things to do is to learn new things. When I was a kid I used to read the encyclopedia like a novel.

4. Color is one of my favorite things.

5. I adore my husband, and he's also my best friend.

6. I'm a hugger.

7. Cooking is my least favorite thing, and if I could figure out how to get someone else to do it, I would never cook again.

8. I have always wanted to live in Europe, amongst all of that history, and have that sort of casual lifestyle where things are a bit slower and people are more connected to each other.

9. When I was in 4th grade I fell down a flight of stairs and broke my right wrist, which caused me to be ambidextrous.

10. I love God with all of my heart.

3. Too much noise stresses me out.
4. I think feet with long middle toes look funny.
5. I'm not very good at interior decorating but wish I was.
6. I can touch my nose with my tongue.
7. I love the idea of working through a list like that on a trip, but know that it would drive my husband crazy so would have to find someone else to take a drive with!

Merry Christmas!
