My 100 Things About Me

Well, I'm going to take a break from Sybil bashing and post my 100 things about me. Things are going pretty good between us right now. I am working on communicating and confronting my issues with her. She is working on patience and understanding. Anyway, I wanted to get this in before our next blow-up. Without further ado:
  1. I am extremely likeable in person.
  2. I can talk to anyone about anything.
  3. I can be a great BSer, in terms of number 2.
  4. Although I am sociable, I like my solitude.
  5. I love the world, but I don't always like the people in it.
  6. My kids are my foundation.
  7. Sybil and I "had" to get married because she became pregnant after dating about 6 months.
  8. Although we've had our ups and downs, I'd say we've done very well considering number 7.
  9. All of my children were "surprises."
  10. I love being outside.
  11. My job keeps me inside.

  24. I don't see the correlation.
  25. I have communication issues.
  26. I fear rejection.
  27. I have self-esteem problems.
  28. Numbers 25, 26, and 27 make it hard to open up with Sybil.

so gone-
Let's just say it was an event I'll always remember. LOL!

daddy's lil girl-
Thanks, I'm not leaving town but trying to get caught up on stuff.

I'm not what the chinese thing means. I've always attributed her issues because of being "Type A".

I was in Kappa Alpha. It is a more Southern fraternity. I had a great time.

Thanks for the posts.
