1. i still get car sick! i thought i would grow out of it but i still prefer to sit up front! along with that i get airplane sick too! yuck!

2. i no longer can ride on rides! you know at disney or the fair! barf!

6. i dont like to read! but i do like to look at magazines! and after saying this i did sign up for a book club online! hey, i am going to try!

7. i am very indecisive! i cant even decide where to eat! i am scared of making the wrong decision! it is very frustrating!

8. everything is done with a theme! which means i always use a theme whether its for a birthday party or a present! i guess this helps with my planning and indecisiveness! ha!

9. i pass out over shots, blood, injuries, just the thought of it makes me weak! so how did i give birth twice? well, with the grace of God!

    I loved reading your list... you are not going to believe this but I hate the outdoor smell too! I thought this was just me! LOL when the kiddos come inside from hours of playing they have to go take a bath! or i feel ill.
    I knew we had a lot in common!!!
