25 Things About Me

Yes it's true. I did the 25 Things About Me on Facebook. Sometimes I surprise myself. Here they are if you don't get over to my Facebook page.

1. The last time I was on an airplane was when I was 16.
2. I celebrated my 16th birthday in Paris.
3. I am afraid of heights.
4. I had a dream that I had to save my oldest daughter from drowning which later came true on her first day of swimming lessons.
5. I come close to having panic attacks when my children are in or near water.
6. I earned a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Medical Laboratory Science in four years at UVM.
7. I used to be a Deadhead but I can’t stand listening to The Grateful Dead Channel on satellite radio.
8. 9% of NPR listeners switch between NPR and The Howard Stern Show. I am a member of that 9%.
9. I love to put Ring Dings in the freezer and eat them while they are frozen.
10. I feel extremely lucky that I am able to be a stay at home mom.
11. I admire The Dalai Lama.
12. My mother was Irish and I have the temper to prove it.
13. One of the people in my life from whom I have learned the most is my four year old daughter who has Down syndrome.
14. I have never met a dog I didn’t like.
15. I don’t have one ounce of anything that could be construed as artistic talent.
16. My husband is the most honorable person I have ever met.
17. I have little tolerance for adults who are disrespectful to children; that goes double for adults who are disrespectful to their own children.
18. I generally don’t like country music but I think Willie Nelson is awesome.
19. People usually underestimate my depth of understanding and my capabilities. I like it that way.
20. I once had a juggling contest with a physicist. He won.
21. I am careful to take my flag in at sundown every evening and I never let it fly in the rain.
22. I’m an introvert through and through.
23. Chit chat is exhausting and nerve wracking to me.
24. The only answer I will ever give to the question “Is Santa Claus real?” will be “Yes. The Spirit of Christmas is very real.”
25. I miss backpacking on The Long Trail and hope to do it again when my kids are older.

Well, I learned a little, but it's all well within the context of who I think you are, and that's a very comforting thought.
