  72. It is probably the 3rd or 4th time I have checked this book out in the 14 years I've lived here.
  73. I wish I knew the history of this house. Like who lived here in the 1860's when it was built?
  74. I do know that a family from Italy lived here at one time and raised a family of 4 children.

  85. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist.
  86. This causes some problems in doing artwork. I need to losen up!
  87. Sometimes I lack confidence.
  88. I don't like doing major construction-like sanding, staining, drywalling, etc.
  89. In fact I just groan at the mere thought of it. Ugh!!!!
  90. I day dream about hiring someone just to come and do all of the construction work on my house...and having an unlimited budget with it!
  91. I hate grocery shopping.
  92. If I have extra money, I'm more likely to blow it on art supplies than clothing.
  93. I've been spendig too much money lately and need to stay way from Michael's.
  94. I think Heberews 13:5 was written just for me. Go ahead and look it up!
  95. I enjoy taking a good nap now and again.
  96. I once had an opportunity to be an exchange student to Australia. (Rockhampton, QD)
  97. I still regret that I didn't do it.
  98. I'm not sure what the abbreviation for Queensland is.
  99. I've never been much of a risk taker and I've shortchanged myself because of it.

Scilly: That was one of the best tags ever! Thank you for taking the time. So very interesting. I know you a lot better today...and you're a reall neat person!!!

Martha said...

I feel the same way about my brothers (almost exactly).

Strong perfumes also bother me as does smoke.

I love #'s 49 and 50!

And I don't remember the exchange student thing. (I probably would have chickened out if it were me, and then regretted it too.)

Pricilla, when I read this I felt like I could've written a lot of it myself. You did great! Especially the parts about down time, peace and quiet and tattoos and piercings. And I would love to know the history of my house too (1913) it apparently was once a duplex.

joeks said...

#49 and #50 (the parent's job)--Absolutely!

#30-#32 (lists, calendar, cluttered house, but inside I'm a neat and tidy person)--That's me too.

I don't know how everyone's finding time for these "100 Lists". I'll put it on my "To Do" list, but don't hold your breath! : )

Shelly said...

We have a lot of similarities too... perfectionist, lacking confidence, NAPs - I'm thankful for naps! :) Way to go.

Rachel said...

I feel that way about our brothers too.

I also embarrass my children...even when I don't try. Sometimes it's quite amusing!

I also lack confidence.

I stay up too late too, and naps rule!

Hi,

My name is Erica and I've read your blog for ages but never commented. You have a great blog (and your family members too) :)

I live in Australia. That is cool you had the chance to come to Australia. If you'd come you would know "Qld" is the abbreviation :) I love it how Americans always abbreviate their state names (it can take me a while to work out which state you mean)! I live in Tasmania. What do you think the abbreviation is?!

Priscilla said...

Hi Erica! thanks for commenting!

Is Tasmania.....Tsma?

Erica said...

Hee, hee, nope. "Tas" or "TAS" :)

Martha said...

About #75... I recall a time when the walls of your house were talking...

kristina said...

I am quite artistic.

I don't care for asparagus.
-i can't eat canned asparagus or other ugly food.

I root for the underdog.I hate to see people being picked on.
-you are so sweet.

Sometimes I embarrass my children
-i have no children. sometimes i embarass myself though.

Heberews 13:5
-i did look it up. sneaky.

That is a great list. Lets us get to know you better.

Why in the world would you pass up a trip to Austalia?

Tracy said...

Good job, Priscilla. I guess I may have to cave and do a 100 list as well. Peer pressure is a strong influence...
