A Meme

Here's a meme I stole from HolyGirl427...

Simply bold the things you have done and give us a total count at the end...

Bought everyone in the pub/bar a drink -- Well, actually, WHH did, but I was with him!
Climbed a mountain
Held a tarantula
Taken a candlelit bath with someone -- Why do you suppose I call him Way-Hot Husband?
Been in love -- For the past 30+ years!
Broken someone’s heart
Had my heart broken
Done a striptease -- I can be a tart that way
Bungee jumped
Watched a lightning storm at sea
Stayed up all night long, and watched the sun rise

Seen the Northern Lights
Gone to a huge sports game -- Many, but Super Bowl XXXVI in New Orleans 2002 was the biggest and most exciting for me. New England 20 St. Louis 17. Paul McCartney performed pre-game and U2 was half-time.
Grown and eaten my own vegetables -- One summer we had so many tomatoes that we were sick to death of them. Jim and Patrick had a big food fight in the yard with tomatoes. It was so much fun to watch them having fun together.
Slept under the stars --
After a hayride one crisp October night, WHH and I slept next to the camp fire. It was so romantic, but we woke up in the early morning chilled to the bone! Changed a baby’s diaper -- I'm a MOM!
Taken a trip in a hot air balloon
Watched a meteor shower -- I've seen a shooting star a few times, but never a shower of them.
Gotten drunk on champagne -- Every year on our anniversary for the first few years. That stopped when I got pregnant with Jimbo, and we never really did that again because champagne hangovers are painful!
Given money to charity -- Our favorite charities are Alzheimer's Association, Habitat for Humanity, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and NAMI
Looked up at the night sky through a telescope -- Saw the Hale-Bopp Comet in 1995 with my friend, Peg, at the Walters State Community College Observatory
Had an uncontrollable giggling fit at the worst possible moment
-- When I was in junior high my friend, Brenda, and I giggled throughout church services for probably an entire year. I'm very ashamed of that, but we did have fun.
Had a food fight
Bet on a winning horse
Taken a sick day when I wasn’t ill -- Usually because one or both of the boys was sick. Had a snowball fight
Photocopied my butt or any other intimate body part -- only my face
Held a lamb
Gone skinny dipping -- WHH and I climbed the fence of the Carlinville Country Club pool more than a few times to go skinny dipping.
Taken an ice cold shower
Seen a total eclipse -- of the moon
Ridden a roller coaster -- When I was in high school, my friends and I loved going to King's Island near Cincinnati to ride "The Racer" roller coaster. We would ride it, then get right back in line to ride again trying different seats each time.
GOOD TIMES! I think that's probably when I screwed up my neck!
