My List of 20

November 16th, 2006 at 08:53 am

I'm waiting on the furnace people so I played around with this and this is what I have so far....

1. My kids don't think I'm funny.
2. I love to read books on history.
3. I read every little sign in a museum which drives my family crazy.
4. I don't really like to drive.
5. I was the best softball player--in elementary school.
6. I was used as a school science experiment in junior high because of my hair.
7. I was probably the only kid in school whose bedroom furniture was antiques.
8. I love blue jeans, hot chocolate, bakeries, and local pottery.
9. I had friends on every sporting team and band in high school and attended almost everything--I was the world's biggest fan.
10. My voice, but not my face, was used in a multimedia presentation at a company where I worked in college. I don't know why because it sounds annoying to me.
11. Before I was born, my mother had a dog named Jan. If I want to send my mom through the roof, I just tell someone I was named after the family dog.
12. I love tin roofs. I had one in college and loved the rain and the squirrels playing acorn hockey in the afternoons.
13. I love rain and thunderstorms.
14. I love small town cafes.
15. When I was little, I was deathly afraid of a volcano erupting in our back field.
16. Hubby was high on flu drugs at our wedding and we giggled through the ceremony. Fortunately, the preacher was sweet and hard of hearing.
17. I hardly ever talk on the phone.
18. I love geneaology--I grew up in a family of older people. I loved the stories.
19. I turn into a hermit at times.
20. I actually HAD a pony growing up, but I was scared of him.

    I have read many of these as I call them affirmations about one's self and find them interesting. It's good to know what you know about yourself. I don't think that most of us have a list like that. How did you get started and what made you want to make a list?

    I am really enjoying everyone's lists!

    Aleta: I guess I've toyed with "understanding" myself ever since I went to therapy to learn skills to deal with mild bipolar and other chemical disorders. I was told I have an insight into what makes me tick. I started a list once to see what I actually did like. After reading the first ones here, my brain went into mulling mode and I wrote down everything last night and tried to read my writing this morning. Give it a try! I love that you call them affirmations!

    P.S. Once in school, while I was out for surgery, a friend kept a school "diary" for me of each day's events. It was hilarious--her take on the funny and not so funny things. I guess it was the first time I'd ever seen someone write down things like that. It must have stuck a bit, cos I've always wanted to try it.

    My son has antique furniture in his room - it was my grandmother's, and still looks great, so I don't want to part with it. Fortunately, I don't think he cares...

    Mine was my great grandmother's I think.....oak, and I grew to love it!
