100 things continued

Moving on…

36. I enjoy going to the beach

37. I’ve had braces for 14 years total

38. I can’t wait to get them off

39.  I’ll be very selective about who does my children’s braces

40. I want to go to the casino for a night

41. I think I’d spend ALL my money that night

42. I want my kids to each have their own room

43. My favorite cereal is “cinnamon toast crunch”

44. I love spending the day in NYC (any takers, lets get me a sitter and go)

45. One of my dreams is to see ‘Blue Man Group’ 

46. With Michael there too

47. I want my nose pierced

48. Mike doesn’t

49. So, it’ll never happen

50. I have no birth marks

51. I worry Aidan will one day join the service

52. And, leave this world too early

53. But I would cherish that he did it for ALL of us to have Freedom

54. I want Cameron’s husband to treat her like a QUEEN

55. And ALL the time

56. I hate when people use words to tear me down

57. I’m highly allergic to apples

58. But only raw apples

59. So I enjoy apple crisp 

60. and apple pie for that matter

61. I worry about running out of things in life

62. So, I like to stock up on stuff and hide it in my basement

63. I’m pretty scared of spiders

64. and ants too (ughh,  I’m grossed out as I type this)

65. I’ve been told I’m cold and insensitive

66. I think about that now everyday of my life

67. I have eczema (oh so annoying)

68. I HATE to hear my children cry

69. But, I pretend it doesn’t bother me (that’s a coping thing, to help me get through the moment)

70. Inside me, my heart hurts whenever I hear them cry


Stay tuned for the rest of the list tomorrow, have a great day!

    Hey Rachel,
    I’ll make you apple crisp next week. Actually in3 or 4 days. Saturday or Sunday whichever you prefer. Don’t let anyones negative talk stay with you every day. You are NOT cold and insensitive. Actually you are one of the most sensitive people I know. I love you and can’t wait to see you.

    Cold and insensitive? Who are they TALKING about? Not you.
    I didn’t know you were allergic to apples. I hear that’s pretty rare…my friend Cheryl’s DH is highly allergic to a couple of varieties only.
    I hate to hear my kids cry and have to pretend it doesn’t bother me too. I really hate it.

  3. Amy Says:

    I agree you are far from cold and insensitive……….OK I AM SO DOWN TO GOING TO NYC I’ve never been there and am dying to go!!! 😉

  4. Dennis Says:

    Stephanie- I’m not gonna let you fail me on the apple crisp next week! You’re on!
    Amy – I’m glad I’m not the only mom who does the “fake it to make it” thing!

    Amy- you are so sweet! And, lets go this spring, like you said, before it gets too hot! I would want you to enjoy the trip so you’ll go again…

    Dennis – maybe this summer sometime??? Ask your mom to watch my kids and we have a deal!
    My kids have no choice with my genetics for braces, the odds are like 9 out of 10 they’ll need braces (not good odds, you know)!

    Mere- you’re too sweet!

  7. Joshua Wood Says:

    Rach I have known you for 14 years (one of which you were my teacher and I know that was frustrating) and you have always been a model of love and kindness and encouragement to Michael so much that I looked for the qualities you had in the person I am soon going to be proposing too!!

    People say mean and insensative things when they are hurt and scared. Only their insecurities!!
