Ten surprising things

Over at Testosterhome, Rachel is blogging about 10 surprising things about herself. I thought I would try, because I know you are all dying to know more about me. Let's see how far I can get.

1. I cannot stand to be in a kitchen where the cabinet doors are open. I close them constantly, even if I am unloading the dishwasher and will be back to open them momentarily.

2. I have a favorite freckle. Weird, I know.

3. I always wanted five kids and to marry a pastor. God has blessed me.

4. I love fountain cokes. I will settle for diet or coke zero, but I really prefer the full calorie business.

5. I had a dog named Rusty when I was growing up. He had red hair just like me.

6. My high school class only had 25 students.

7. I hate gardening. Love the results, but hate doing it. Thankfully my husband enjoys it and does it well.

8. I was a cashier at Target for six years during high school and college.

9. The first car I drove in high school was a brown '78 station wagon. I was the envy of all my friends.

10. I have a large collection of Precious Moments.

Okay, that was seriously hard. About 5 or 6 I really started slowing down. Am I truly that unsurprising? Probably.

#5 and 9 really took me back. I loved Rusty because we didn't have a dog of our own at that time. And I have some great memories of riding in that station wagon. I even remember a conversation once where you talked about marrying a Pastor and having lots of kids. I'm so glad I got that one year to carpool with you and Wendy. I'll never forget it.

RUSTY!!!!! Oh the memories our hubbies have of Rusty. We don't need to go there, but it brought a smile to my face.

The station wagon! Infamous memories! (As you know, in-famous is when they're more than famous.)

BTW, I thought you always wanted 10 kids...

Heidi - I know. . .our husbands are not kind to my sweet deceased dog!
Christine - I don't remember that, but I suppose anything's possible. . .
