Last week I left off with #25, so here’s to #s 26-50
#26 As I type this, I am reminding myself how stupid it was to get another dog two years ago. She is a yappy little turd,but not a tiny dog. She’s a 60lb yellow lab that barks like a little yappy mutt! She drives me crazy.
#27 I swore I never needed a smart phone, but once I got a blackberry almost three years ago, all bets were off. Now I have an iPhone 4, and I love it!
#28 I change my nail polish about twice a week. I have to use up all those bottles of OPI you know! I have about 60. Yep. 60. Way too many.
#29 I have lived in three different countries: Canada, Germany and USA.
#30 Never once have I voted in an election.
#31 My kitchen has a built-in wine rack that gets dusty because I never use it, I’m no Wino! haha. For real, I don’t care for the taste of alcohol, so a drink is very rare for me.
#32 I’ve never smoked a cigarette, ever.
#33 In regards to #31….I’ve been drunk maybe 5-6 times in my entire life. See? Told you I didn’t like the taste of alcohol very much!
#34 My current chocolate weakness is Salted Caramel Macadamia Nut Clusters from Costco. I’m also partial to Coffee Crisps from the Great White North.
#35 After this past weekend, I have really discovered a love of hiking. Ask me if I feel the same way in a month when we do a very difficult hike.
#36 I wish I had curly hair, but mine is stick straight.
#37 My sister is visiting this week, and while I said in #33 that I don’t like the taste of alcohol too much, I’ll be having a lemon drop tonight and I’ve been looking forward to that for a month.
#38 I’ve lost about 15lbs so far in the last month
#39 I’ve taken way too long to write this, and I am totally procrastinating. I started this two weeks ago! Fail Joanna, FAIL!
#40 I now have gained a bit of that weight back, about 3lbs, but I also ate like shit while my sister was here and didn’t exercise as much. I’m back on the wagon now.
#41 I ate two Cadbury creme eggs today. Oops. Don’t worry, they’re all gone now. And just forget what I wrote because of the post above. I really am back on the wagon…I just had a weak moment in Rite Aid this morning and bought a couple.
#42 I have two cats. Have I mentioned this already? I can’t remember. Perhaps it’s a sign I’m turning into the crazy cat lady. Anyway, yeah…two cats. Zeus and Hades. Yes, they are named after the greek gods. Zeusy is a silver tabby Maine Coon with a crooked tail, and Hades is your run of the mill, black sleeky short-haired house cat. They’re both 5, and they were my 27th birthday present.
#43 I wish I wasn’t so hard on myself with my weight loss, and didn’t beat myself up so often about it.
#44 On the other hand, I wish I tried harder sometimes and didn’t have a problem with junk food. Damn you sugar addiction!
#45 One sound that drives me nuts is when my black lab Braddock (he’ll be 9 next month!) shakes his head, and his collar and tags shake and make an awful metallic noise. It always wakes me from my beauty sleep on the couch.
#46 I started hiking with my man, and I really like it. Except for the fact that it makes my feet hurt like a bitch. I did just spend a small fortune on good Keen hiking boots last week, so I am hoping they do well by me this next Sunday when we go again. And I realize I did write about hiking already, so let this fact be about my hiking boots that I bought. Keen is expensive! But they feel awesome.
#47 Another sound that drives me nuts? When my kids come barging in the door after a day at school. My peace is now gone. And for the next 5.5-6 hours I will have only noise. Yes, I do love the little monsters.
#48 I didn’t go to my 10 year high school reunion because I was too embarrassed about my weight.
#49 I suit short hair. Not pixie cut short, but mid neck a-line bob short. I want to grow it out, but I can’t make up my mind.
#50 I am wondering what I was thinking when I committed to 100 things about me. This is harder than I thought it would be.
