You are an unique individual with ecclectic tastes!! I loved reading it!! Unfortuantely, I didn't know about half of the things you liked, but I could identify with alot of the other stuff. like cleaning up after the hubby before aerobics...

Thanks for sharing!!

That sucks that you don't like any of the faculty etc. in the COB. Also that your hubby doesn't pick up after himself (though my hubby isn't entirely free and clear in that regard). I'm sorry that you don't seem to have a lot of support with getting rid of the lbs. That can make a difficult challenge even more difficult. Hopefully the support you get from bloggers etc. is helping you with this. Getting rid of weight is a way difficult thing to do.

For some reason, I really like these lists and find them fascinating. It's like learning everything you would know about a person if you had been friends with them for the last 5 years.

Thanks for sharing!

How are you coping with Degernative Disc Disease (DDD)? Are you seeking any treatment? Can it REALLY make you shrink?
