I’ve seen several of my fellow blog-friends do this, so I’m going to undertake the task while I’m nicely medicated in my recovery stage. πŸ˜€

  1. I was born and raised in NOLA, but lived in various other places at small bits of time.
  2. I’m such a NOLA girl that I was born in the middle of a Mardi Gras parade.
  3. My father and uncle weren’t present for the birth because they were catching beads.
  4. The longest stint in another place was 16 months in Little Rock, AR.
  5. It was hell, but I saw snow.
  6. I was working for Golden Books at the time.
  7. I have been with my husband for 15 years this coming January.
  8. We will be married for 12 years 2 weeks later.
  9. We have three children, all four years apart.
  10. After my surgery last week, there will be no more children, but I do not regret it.
  11. Three is enough, I don’t know what they were thinking about when they said eight is!!
  12. We are slowly but surely building a petting zoo at our house.
  13. We have three cats, two dogs, and a hamster.
  14. I have been a teacher for 8 years.
  15. I am a perpetual student. I’ve only been out of school for a total of five years ever.
  16. I have three degrees, an associates in juvenile couseling, a bachelors in social counseling, a masters in education, language arts. I also have +30 graduate hours.
  17. I have multiple teaching certifications and multiple partial certifications.
  18. I’m certified to teach 1st-8th grade all subjects and Reading Specialist.
  19. I have one class to fulfill my computer literacy cert., one class and a practicum from my gifted cert., two classes from my ESL cert., and three classes and a practicum from my library science cert.
  20. I’m taking two of the library classes this spring.
  21. Even though my focus has always been on language arts, I am a math teacher currently.
  22. Go figure!
  23. I am an avid mystery reader.
  24. I’m on a Janet Evanovich kick. Since I’ve been home this week I’ve read Four, Five, and I just started Six.
  25. I’m also a t.v. junkie.
  26. I’m currently very disappointed because of the cancellations of The Nine and Vanished.
  27. I think I would go ballistic if SVU or Jericho were cancelled.
  28. I’ve never seen Grey’s Anatomy or Desperate Housewives.
  29. People look at me like I’m crazy when I say that.
  30. I still have four episodes from last season of LOST! to watch before I can watch this season.
  31. I blame this on hubby. I may just say screw him and watch them myself without waiting for him.
  32. I also love Intervention, Flip This House, and Top Chef/Project Runway (whichever one is on).
  33. The Amazing Race All-Stars season has me on cloud nine, even if I hate the little woman.
  34. I’m so hooked on tv that we have two Tivos.
  35. Well, technically one is a DirectTV DVR and one is the real thing, but same purpose.
  36. I’m such a Tivo fanatic that I bought one for my mom last year and bought her another one this year for Christmas with a DVD recorder.
  37. I also bought one for my niece and her fiance’ for Christmas.
  38. This Christmas was terribly hard for us to shop for our kids.
  39. Because, we buy things for them all year round and that leaves us with little to get them.
  40. They are not spoiled, however.
  41. Well, maybe a little stinky, but not rotten.
  42. Even the animals got their stashes for their stockings.
  43. Yes, the cats got some nip. The junkies that they are…
  44. The hamster even got some wood chips.
  45. We’re a fair family, I guess.
  46. We got snow on Christmas two years ago, I sure wish that would happen again.
  47. This is harder than you think.
  48. But, I’m almost halfway there.
  49. Who’da thunk it?
  50. My musical taste is pretty crazy too.
  51. I like everything, pretty much.
  52. Hubby gets in the car and gets amazed by some of the stuff that comes up on the iPod.
  53. I got hubby the iPod with Video for Christmas.
  54. Mine doesn’t have video.
  55. Would it be really awful to trade with him? πŸ˜›
  56. I’m trying to do podcasts and vodcasts with my students so it would be cool to show it to them in that format.
  57. I guess I could “borrow” it on the day I want to show them.
  58. My students think some of the things I do are boring, (remember I am the MATH teacher), but they are really excited about our coming blog and podcasts.
  59. Hubby thinks I invest too much of myself into my students.
  60. I guess I do too.
  61. I have to have something on my feet at all times.
  62. I hate looking at other people’s crusty feet. Lotion, people, lotion.
  63. Being in NOLA, you see peoples’ feet year round.
  64. I have a sleep problem.
  65. I can’t fall asleep and I can’t stay asleep.
  66. I sleep with the t.v. on.
  67. My doctor said if I turned the t.v. off my sleep habit would improve.
  68. I think he’s a liar.
  69. I’ve had a sleep study done on me and the t.v. wasn’t on and it was no different. So phooey on you Doc.
  70. I was out of the t.v. sleeping habit until Katrina.
  71. While we were evacuated for 22 days I had to sleep with the t.v. on so I could hear any updates.
  72. I’ve not turned the t.v. off since.
  73. I miss Katie on Today.
  74. I’m almost 3/4 of the way there.
  75. Now I am.
  76. I’m tired.
  77. And thirsty.
  78. And I think I have a cookie that wants me to eat it.
  79. I don’t cook much.
  80. Hubby is the cook around here.
  81. We’re really more of the food-fixer types than cooks.
  82. I do make a kick-ass Crawfish Corn Bisque, though.
  83. I don’t eat any condiments.
  84. Not ketchup, mayo, mustard, or any others.
  85. I don’t eat tomatos, or ketchup, but I eat spaghetti sauce, drink bloody marys, and eat tomato soup.
  86. I don’t eat mayo, but eat ranch dressing, and light tartar sauce.
  87. People think that’s weird too.
  88. I still don’t eat mustard in any form.
  89. My cat is looking at me enviously because my knee is in his spot on the bed.
  90. Oprah is awesome.
  91. So is Ellen.
  92. I just got the best silver peep-toe wedges.
  93. I don’t know when to wear them though.
  94. My kids at school love when I dress cute. (They’re 13-15.) They think I look hip.
  95. I graduated high school in ’89.
  96. Wow, that was a long, long time ago.
  97. I couldn’t go to my 15th reunion because I gave birth to my youngest child the day before and was still in the hospital.
  98. One of my classmates was the pediatrician on call and I told her to give my regards to everyone.
  99. I’m almost done!
  100. Finito!!
