Nhgirl's list

September 17th, 2016 at 05:04 am

I just typed this and lost it. Thank goodness I copied it!

Reading the lists uplifted my mood a bit yesterday. It was a rough day, but that is for another post. Here is my list. I am a afraid I am pretty boring overall!

1.) I have three kids. I have two boys and a girl (25, 23, and 17).

2.) I have two grandchildren, a boy (4) and a girl (3 in January) via my oldest son.

3.) I currently live in Florida. I grew up in Michigan and also lived in New Hampshire for many years.

4.) I plan on leaving Florida for good after my son graduates in May. I tried Florida twice, and it is not my cup of tea. I am probably moving back to Michigan.

5.) I have been to 46 states (I still need to get to Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alaska and Hawaii).

6.) I currently have three jobs, and I like it that way. I am most comfortable with several streams of income.

7.) I am a moderate Conservative.

8.) I almost never listen to music. I don't hate it, but it is not a part of my life. I could go the rest of my life never hearing another song, and it would not bother me.

9.) I have had a strong urge to volunteer lately. I have decided to wait until the move. At that point I have a specific charity to work with in Michigan in mind.

10.) I never grew up with animals in my home. Much like music, they just are not a part of my life.

11.) I would love to travel more. I have not been outside the US and Canada.

12.) I have an irrational fear of being a bag lady. Hence, my need to work so much. I am sure it is also partially because I have always been the major breadwinner.

13.) I have lost 14 pounds since late July. I cut out processed foods and most sugar. I have also participated in aquacise classes.

14.) I've been married twice. I am currently married, but we are discussing a separation.

15.) I really want to participate in NaNoWriMo this year. I have had a novel in mind for years, and hope I can follow through.

16.) I have an interest in owning a tiny house. I am not a minimalist, but I don't own a lot of things. I like the idea of no mortgage!

17.) I almost never purchase anything (outside of paying my regular bills) that is not reimbursed. I hate spending money. I can thank mystery shopping for this.

18.) I think about my future constantly. As I get closer to 50, I don't want any more (major) regrets.

19.) I am fortunate at my age to have both parents and a living grandparent (who is in great shape for turning 89 next month).

20.) I have never met any SA bloggers, but I would love to do so!

    We share 16. Just watched the Tiny House Hunters marathon last Saturday with my oldest son. I parted with two bags of items and smallish bookcase since then!

    46 states -- wow! What were your favorites (aside from the ones you've lived in)?

    I haven't counted up mine recently but I know it's nowhere near that. OK -- it's 23 plus Puerto Rico. I'm not counting states I only drove through or states where I had an airport layover (that would add maybe 5), but I did include a couple places I drove into just to say I'd been there, and then drove back shortly!

  7. CB in the City Says:

    I would much prefer Michigan over Florida as well. And I have a son in Florida! I still hope he will move back to the Midwest.

  8. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Hmmm... Washington State, Oregon and Alaska I think are the only states I've not been to at some point.

  9. VS_ozgirl Says:
