It took me far too long to fill this out on Facebook, so I thought it could do double duty.  :)  Things are sort of quieting down here, so I need to get back into the swing of blogging.  

25 Random Things About Me

1.  I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
2.  I like to laugh until it hurts... or I pee, whichever comes first.
3.  I've only left my time zone twice - both times within the last 5 years.
4.  I love the way a large Dunkin' Donuts' cup of coffee feels in my hands.
5.  I say mean things when I get mad, and I frequently hold grudges.  I have trouble holding my tongue.
6.  I am anal about how my dishwasher is loaded.  People who know me, know not to help with the dishes.
7.  I've lost 17 pounds since August with the help of a Wii Fit.
8.  I have a very low tolerance for ignorance and irresponsibility.
9.  Sometimes I wonder if I'm being a good enough mom.
10.  I occasionally mutilate words, or make up my own, during the course of conversation.
11.  In my head, I often hear moments in my life set to music.
12.  I am a compulsive list maker, yet a terrible procrastinator.
13.  I had a math minor in college, yet I've never been able to balance a checkbook....and I have difficulty calculating percentage-off sales.
14.  I didn't realize I loved my husband's rottweiler until she died.
15.  I've always wished I could sing.  I can't.  And my kids ask me not to.
16.  I have an internet addiction.
17.  I secretly like Britney Spears' music.
18.  I despise being told what to do.
19.  The scariest moment in my life was when my husband was wheeled into brain surgery when I was 3 months pregnant with our second child.
20.  I hate shaving my legs.  I do it reluctantly for my husband's sake.
21.  Children are an amazing gift, but I don't think being a parent is for everyone.
22.  When my time as a stay-at-home mom ends (and my husband assures me it will), I don't know what I want to do next.
23.  My dad's stroke almost 4 years ago taught me that there are no guarantees in life.  You can plan all you want, but life can change drastically in an instant.  
24.  I regret not having my tubes tied during my last c-section.  I now know, I'm done.
25.  I wouldn't trade places with anyone, for anything.
