I loved reading it! You are so funny. I know what you mean about being mostly right.

Does your stoopid neighbor read your blog. If so, then she probably slams the door on purpose cuz she wants to read about herself.

I hope you get pictures of stomping on the grapes thing cuz if you don't I might come over there and smack ya!

I think I'm a bit of a control freak too. Yikes.

I can understand the off the cob thing, but only from a neatness perspective, because it's fun to eat it while still on the cob!

If you ever do the grape squishing, you'd better blog it!

I can completely relate to 2, 5, and 10!

Thanks for sharing more about you! I enjoyed this post. Hope things are going well.

I love your list! I can relate to quite a few of the items. My MIL love loves loves tea cups and pots. I think they are interesting.

You are proof that you don't HAVE to have been raised in a loving family to become a loving, fantastic human being.

just call me jo said...

I love you and your list. So clever and honest.

The Blonde Duck said...

Intense Guy said...

I'm with you on 11, 12, AND 25!


Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

I love your list and I agree with so many but most of all I hate when things are out of my control it makes me nuts

AliceKay said...

Great list. I'm glad you posted it.

I haven't known you long, but you seem to be a wonderful person with a good heart and soul. A rare find. I'm glad we met thru our blogger friend. :) *hugs*

Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish said...

Love it! I want to stomp on grapes too!

Deanna said...

Number 25 rocks! Am busy catching up on blogs. Hope the move plans are progressing!

Honey Mommy said...

I can't believe you have jumped out of a plane twice!

My father is a pilot, and he always says, "Why would you want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane?"

KK said...

I needed to know all of that! We are kindred spirits indeed.

Tammy said...

#7 & #9 are all about Tammy! :)

Mary said...

I think you have to be a little bit of a control freak to get anything done...plus being an Army wife, we hold dear to the situations that we have the luxury of controlling!!

Hubby is trying to work his connections so once he finishes OCS, we could get stationed in Italy...wouldn't that be awesome!
