25 Random Things about Moi

I have read all of the original Robert Ludlum books and the Matt Damon movies suck
I totally and completely love and adore my husband.
I judge when summer is truly here by how hot my hair feels in the sun. I can judge the how cold it is by how fast my nose freezes.
Playing in a symphony is still one of my goals in life.
As a child my favorite book was “Heidi” and I was fascinated by the autobiography of Helen Keller.
I bake approximately 8 loaves of bread a week for the family.

Everyday I cajol a child to put the couch cushions back on the couch and I have for about12 years now.
My favorite times last summer were when #5 and I would go to “Blueberry Hill” and pick berries after dinner each night.
I have read more children’s books in my adulthood than I did in my childhood.
I don’t like jogging. I did it for 2 years in the Army and that was quite enough.
The age of child I like the most seems to be the age my youngest child is (currently 16 months).
My husband is amazed that I can like hard rock and classical music. He is an either or guy on this issue.
