11 Random facts about me:
1. I have been to 43 of the 50 states. Yes, these are the type of things that I keep track of!!
2. My vehicle is 12 years old and I don’t even want to replace it anytime soon….knock on wood. I only drive it back and forth to work (about 15 miles each way) so it should last me forever!!
3. I love animals but I am definitely a dog person. I have never had a cat. I wouldn’t know what to do with one!
4. My one fear: Spiders of any size!!
5. I wear the same clothes for decades at a time. I have photo after photo after photo of me in this fabulous pink jacket!
6. I hit the snooze button for 45 minutes every morning before I finally drag my lazy butt out of bed and get ready for work. My husband loves every minute of that……NOT!!
7. The craziest thing I have ever done is jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Luckily there was a parachute (and a random guy) strapped to my back and I lived to tell about it!
8. I smoked for over 10 years. I started when I was 16 and rebelling! Luckily, I quit when I was 26 and have never looked back. Best thing that I ever did!
9. I nap 4 out of the 7 days of the week. I am soooooo lazy! I do it because I can and I am not ashamed! LOL!
10. I dyed my hair blond for years after high school but I am now back to brunette. Less maintenance! Plus it looked like crap!!!!!
11. I eat the exact same thing for lunch everyday at work. Weight Watcher’s Ziti meal, sugar-free pudding, and a Diet Pepsi!!
