Last bunch

90. I love my husband more than anything or anyone else in the world. We complete each other.

91. My family is my major social contact. I feel most comfortable hanging with my sisters.

92. I had the biggest, most formal wedding of all of us five girls (which isn’t saying much, really.)

93. There is a pile of catalogs, magazines, books, and mail that I read before I fall asleep strewn in about a 9 square foot area on the floor next to my side of the bed. I straighten it out once a week or so.

94. My first reaction to any suggestion is always negative. I am not adverse to changing my mind however, and usually do after giving the issue some thought.

95.I love to sit on my back deck, reading, talking, and drinking coffee (morning) or wine (evening.)

96.Hummingbirds enchant me. As do most birds, but I really love hummingbirds.

97. I keep a pair of jeans in my closet that I grew out of 12 years ago. I try them on about once a month to see if I can get into them. I’ve been able to zip them for about a year. This morning I put them on, and I could actually have worn them out of the house and been able to breathe, sit, and eat. I’m pumped.

98.One of my favorite weekend getaways involves driving to the coast to stay in a campsite where we sit by the fire, read books, drink coffee, and hand feed peanuts to the birds and squirrels.

99.I don’t lie, can’t stand to be lied to. Am not as gullible as I used to be.

100.I miss my Dad. I miss my sister Joyce. I miss my family as they used to be. But life goes on.


  1. I may just have to do this in my journal. Can't wait to finish reading yours. Kristi

  2. Lisa, you and I are like two peas in a pod on some things and as different as night and day in others--but I guess that's why I like you!!! Congrats on those jeans...go strut your stuff in them!!!

  3. OMG! A kindred spirit! #93 is exactly me! Except I haven't picked it up in several months! LOL! Oh, and we are both named Lisa! Lisa @ Wearin' My Heart on My Sleeve

  4. 96.Hummingbirds enchant me. As do most birds, but I really love hummingbirds.

    I got a bird feeder for my birthday and came by to say thank you for the kindness!

    I love this idea but am afraid I'd fall asleep while writting my list. I'll be waiting for the first part of yours...loved it.

  5. Good Golly we have so many likes and dislikes that are similiar. Especially the one about getting along with women.....what is it about the majority of women that irks us? Oh well, I have encoutered several on AOL-J that do not irk me, you included.(repeat, do NOT irk me)Really enjoyed learning so much about you.

  6. Congrats on the weight loss! There is no better, more life affirming feeling than that of being able to get into a pair of long-abandoned but decidedly not forgotten jeans ~ you go girl!

    Lisa; it was fun getting to know you even better through this list; you've really put yourself out there, and I admire your bravery. In fact, I now know more about your likes and dislikes than those of my own brother ~ I think I'll send him a nagging email right now... :)
