My Extremely-Hard-to-Come-Up-With List

November 17th, 2006 at 04:30 am

Finally came up with a list after looking through others' lists and getting ideas:

1. Appeared in a fitness infomercial that aired a few times in 2004.

2. Had 5 kids in 7.5 years

3. Attended college for 1 month then quit and got married

4. Was married at 17 (missed being 18 by 6 days!)

5. Our honeymoon was 2 days at my parents' house while they stayed with my grandparents.

6. 8 days after the wedding my husband went to sea for 6 months (He had just come out of bootcamp in the Navy)

7. Our first home was a pop out camper on the banks of the York River in Virginia

8. Favorite candy: peanut M&Ms!

9. Favorite beverage: Dr. Pepper

10. I like to work Sudoku puzzles and keep a book in the car for times of waiting

11. Odd family fact: one year I turned 10 on the 10th and my brothers were 6 on the 6th and 3 on the 3rd

12. I still have all of my wisdom teeth

13. Have lived in the same town that I grew up in all my life except the 5 years in Virginia while husband was in the Navy

14. Husband and I have known each other since kindergarten.

15. Only time I got in trouble in school was when my husband passed me a note in 3rd grade and the teacher hung it on the bulletin board.

16. Husband used to chase me on the play ground in 4th grade and I would come home and tell my mother that I wished he would leave me alone because I hated him. :-)

17. Husband chipped my tooth in 5th grade.

18. Husband and I started dating in 10th grade because he asked me to the Christmas Ball

19. Never went to the Christmas Ball

20. Can't believe I made it to 20!

    What?! #1, which one was it? Come on... please tell us. Come on... you know you want to! Big Grin

    Wow, that's a lot of kids though... and in such a short time span.

    You can your hubby is so cute though. Hehehe.

    Tina...LOL! Actually, ours is the same mattress and box springs, just a different frame. TMI?

    BA...my lips are sealed. I do have a VCR copy of it though and, can you believe, have never watched it?

    That's so sweet that you guys have known each other so long! We had originally wanted 5 kids, but God is a lot smarter than we are....we were only able to have two and with me being ill, was probably a lifesaver (for me AND them!). I'm sure you've had some real fun family times--awesome!

  6. frugalmomof1 Says:

    This might be a shot in the dark, but I noticed you are from PA....was the infomercial for WATP?

  7. rduell Says:

    Good guess, but no. :-) I wish it had been though. I have several of Leslie's walking DVDs that I use several times a week. Nice try. LOL!

    Hmmm...maybe this could be the "mystery of the blogs".

    You and your husband sound adorable. I like #10. I used to commute to/from NYC so I'd keep books in the car to read while sitting in traffic. Some guy once honked, gestured frantically to me, and when I opened my window, he asked what book I was reading! Too bad he was not my type =P

    I would have been pretty jealous if it was a Leslie infomercial. Big Grin. I started "walking with Leslie" when I was 16!! My mom got me into it.

  10. rduell Says:

    Well, I'm glad you don't have to be jealous!

    I do like Leslie though, despite all her chatter. I know that some of my fitness friends find her annoying, but I think she's entertaining. I like that I can put the workout in and zone out if I want and still not have any problem following along.
