WOW 10????? Ok, 1. I am a compulisive house checker! I check for locked doors/windows, coffee pot off, curling iron off, lights off and toaster oven unplugged at least 3 times before I leave the house....I have even gotten down the road, knowing that I did this and had to re-check! 2. I can't say no to people. I get myself into more than I need to do. In the past 2 years, as a widow with twins...I have been PTA president, worked 20 hours a week, volunteered as a cheer coach and been a baseball team Mom, in addition to helping teachers with copying and field trips! WOW...no wonder I don't have time to take a bubble bath! LOL 3. I lived in cities until my late husband and I purchased 100 acres in WV. I didn't know that when the electricity went off...so did our electric pump supplied water source! You can't even flush the toilet! 4. I have never owned a new vehicle in my life 5. I am not a risk taker and don't gamble or play the stock market....I know that I would lose! 6. People tell me that I don't look my age. With twin 9 year olds, they assume that I am in my early to mid 30's when I am actually 45. 7. I can't stand clutter, and am constantly picking up things in the house. Needless to say, I don't have any knick knacks just sitting around the house to gather dust. 8. I am a fairly decent piano player and dabble in art some. I don't let this get out though...people always ask if you can play or paint something for them and then SEE NUMBER 2 above! 9. I have worked as a florist for years, and have even won some prestigious competitions. I have always wanted to own a flower shop, and hope to someday...but by then, I will probably be so crippled with arthritus that I can't! HA! 10. My Mom is my best friend.

1. I grew up on a farm until I went to college. 2. I would hate to be a farmer, even though I enjoyed the field-work. 3. I used to play in tennis tournaments all over Nebraska every Summer. 4. One year I was ranked 2nd in the state for class B doubles in tennis. 5. I didn't start playing tennis until I was 30. 6. I majored in physics in college, but never used it because I went to seminary after college to be a pastor. 7. My country grade school closed for two years (my 4th & 5th grade years) because my sister and I would have been the only two students in the entire school. 8. My wife was born in Germany and came to this country when she was 3. 9. My father-in-law was a pastor. 10.I want to start a web site with my son (he's a computer genius) and make tons of money (since I have a lot of time in my retirement). A good discussion question!

Hi Modestah! Fun post. :) Let's see... 1) I never want to grow up. I love sitting and playing games and coloring with my children. 2) Road construction orange and John Deere Green are my 2 favorite colors. 3) I've always wanted a metalic purple pick-up truck. (Do you remember the purple on the French Roast Folger's coffee cans?) 4) Even thought I totally hated my job, I do miss it sometimes. 5) I secretly wish there was a "Kids" station on the radio. Things appropriate for my children to listen to in the car--without hearing the "wheels on the bus" a thousand times. 6) My husband is probably the only True best friend I ever had. 7) I haven't changed the kitty litter boxes in 3 months. They go outside to do their business, unless we are gone for the weekend. (See how often we've been gone for the weekend?) 8) I spend far too many hours on the computer. I think of all the other habits I could be contributing to. LOL! 9) I much prefer Diet Coke over any other soda. Caffiene Free, please 10) I still have fall colored oak leaves hanging in my dining room. How'd they get there??? Guess I'll leave them, autumn will be starting far too soon. There's my 10. I noticed, that you, my dear, didn't include your 10. Care to share??
