100 Things

I've seen this on two different blogs today and it seemed like a nice way to ease myself back into blogging.

The rules state: Below are 100 statements. Bold or change the color of the ones you have done.
  1. Started your own blog
  2. Slept under the stars
  3. But woke up in the rain.
  4. Played in a band
  5. I was in the school band for ... three years? I played clarinet and, very briefly, coronet.
  6. Visited Hawaii
  7. Watched a meteor shower
  8. Given more than you can afford budgeted to charity
  9. I disagree with the original statement on principle.
  10. Been to Disneyland or Disney World
  11. World, 1991 with a bunch of kids from youth group after we'd spent all week offering disaster relief to victims of Hurricane Andrew.
  12. Climbed a mountain
  13. I've told this story, haven't I?
  14. Held a praying mantis
  15. Maybe. I liked bugs as a kid, but don't specifically remember what I caught over the years.
  16. Sang a solo
  17. In my church a few times when I was in high school.
  18. Had stitches
  19. Once in my head and once, um, elsewhere, after my daughter was born.
  20. Visited Paris
  21. Watched a lightning storm at sea

  23. Kinda. I was taught how to chain and make a single stitch, but otherwise I taught myself to crochet.
  24. Adopted a child
  25. Had food poisoning
  26. I was pregnant at the time. One of the two times I vomited during that pregnancy. I haven't been interested in Navy Bean Soup since.
  27. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
  28. Back when they still let you.
  29. Grown your own vegetables
  30. My parents had an enormous garden when I was a kid. I haven't grown much as an adult, but I discovered that a local church here has a community garden, so we may grow some veggies this summer.
  31. Seen the Mona Lisa in France
  32. Slept in an overnight train
  33. On my way to my brother's wedding.

  36. Not really on purpose, but I've taken a couple rides from strangers when I've gotten lost or had car trouble.
  37. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill
  38. Mental health days are my friend. I just wish the benefits plan for motherhood came with a few more.
