64. I don’t know how to drive a stick shift.

65. I have always loved to color, long before the adult coloring fad began.

66. I enjoy sewing but I’m relatively new to it so I’m not very good yet.

67. I love to hold hands in public. And even kiss my husband. I mean not a tongue swapping show at Olive Garden or anything, but a reminder to him that I’m glad we are sharing this moment.

68. I have a creative side but often it ends up in a big mess because I’m too lazy to finish or clean up.

69. I am obsessed with Sharpies.

70. My first words were ‘dummy, stupid baby’ thanks to my older sister and brother. They found it hilarious.

71. I had a kidney stone the size of a golf ball. Yeah, that was not fun even with the morphine.

78. My music taste is eclectic. George Strait, Puddle of Mudd, The Guess Who, B.B. King, Kermit the Frog, Prince, Curtis Stingers, Kathy Trocolli, big band, etc. Just keep the rap, screaming, and classical away, please.

79. Favorite pro team is the Carolina Panthers. Sad, sad Super Bowl.

80. Favorite college team is OSU Cowboys. Go Pokes!

81. I am on my cell phone too much.

82. I love researching things.

83. I’m right handed when I write but if it is an athletic thing my left hand is dominate.

84. I think sex is a wonderful thing. I mean as long as it is consensual. Good communication is the key to…well, you get the idea. I won’t draw you a picture.

85. I am horrible at drawing.

86. My favorite holiday is Christmas.

87. I used to dislike Valentine’s Day because I think it is a set up for couples to fight and singles to feel inadequate. However, my husband and I started a tradition where we don’t get each other things but instead make cupcakes and deliver them to people in our lives that are special or people we know are having a hard time. I love February 14th now.

88. I would rather wash than dry the dishes.

89. I have changed a thermocoupler on a hot water heater twice. (The things you must learn to do as a single woman…whew)

90. I have never been a fan of physical labor or even the outdoors. But lately I have found out that I am stronger physically and mentally than I thought. And while I don’t jump up and down at the opportunities to make my body sore, I don’t dread it either

91. I can touch my tongue to my nose.

92. My second toe is much longer than my big toe. In fact, my third toe is almost longer than it too. Freakazoid me.

93. I love to buy shoes but prefer to walk around barefoot.

94. Grammar/spelling mistakes drive me crazy in books or on signs. I guess you could say I am a grammaraholic. (I know there are mistakes in here but it’s a blog and four in the morning so it doesn’t count.)

95. I wish I had a hot tub, a turtle, a puppy, cable, and unlimited Wi-Fi, but I am happy and content without them.

96. My skin is pale white without the ability to tan, but my bruises do bring some color to it.

97. The first thing I do when I come home is take off my shoes and bra. If my husband beats me home, I do kiss him first.

98. I use a cpap machine at night. I am one sexy lady, huh? Lol.

99. I love star gazing but don’t do it often enough.

100. I am capable of coming up with a 100 things about me!

 

Whew, time for a glass of wine and a nap.

Audra
