10 THINGS ABOUT ME:
I paid my own way in college, but had to quit when I got pregnant and married. I still want to go back and get my degree in English. I speak just enough French to make French people laugh at me when I try to communicate with them. I'm scared of water that I can't see into, but I'm not afraid of water, no matter how deep, as long as it's clear. I wish I could sing, I mean REALLY sing. I'm an emotional eater. I go to sleep at night thinking about my way-in-the-future kitchen remodel. I sing John Denver songs in the shower. Every morning, as soon as wake up, I sit on the toilet, open the shutters, and look out the window into the backyard. I hate to go to bed. It takes me a couple of hours to really wake up in the mornings.


9 FRIENDS WHO KNOW ME BEST:
Sherilyn, Kristi, Cara, Melissa, Elaine, Nancy, Sue, Gayla, Denise


8 THINGS I HATE:
Being fat. The fear that people will assume I'm lazy and undisciplined when they first meet me. Cooking, unless it's for a dinner party. Other people's kids, unless it's people I love. Those big nasty "Water Bug" roaches. Bird poop on my car. Liars. Taking medicine.
