Ten things you might not know about me (and will probably still wish you didn't)

Hmm...  Was just spending time over at Christy Tomlinson's blog and she has a 10 things post that she challenged her readers to do as well... Now... I'm not near as talented as Christy and this will be a much shorter 10 list, and I'm not even sure ten people read this anymore...  but here goes:

1. I love horror novels...  love them... would hate to tell you how many nights I simply didn't sleep because I wanted to finish reading a book!

2. I once lost so much weight (from a size 12 to a size four) that I couldn't adjust my body image to my actual body size.  I had to go shopping with someone because I could not pick out clothes that would fit. 

3. Paper crafting was not my first love... I used to really love to paint and draw and sew...  I made my own clothes, painted huge abstract canvases and drew murals for my school and our local haunted house.

4.  Deep down, I think you are a way better person than I am.

5.  I am physically disturbed by the sound of ripping fabric... It makes my throat close up and I feel as though I cannot breathe.

6.  I prefer night to day but I am more a morning person.

7.  I was adopted before I was born, but did not get to live with my new family until two and half months after I was born.

8.  I never use the last of anything-- I won't eat the last cookie, take the last soda, throw out the little remainder piece of ribbon...

9.  I do believe that people are good and kind and yet, I do not believe that all people are.

10. I survived Hurricane Katrina and have never been the same.

So... that's the ten things that come to mind without thinking about them...   10 lists are actually a great way to get yourself writing, out of a rut, into a new way of seeing, and for cataloguing memories...  Make yourself one...
10 things I'd like to learn
10 things i wish I'd never said
10 things I believe about myself that aren't true...
you pick... share if you want.. or get yourself a nifty journal and write them down... 

hope you're making something beautful...

Yes! You do have a great list. Katrina was awful and I know things we go through make us stronger so I'm sure you will be one tough momma now! Glad to "meet" you!!
