98 I went to Memphis with my little brother and momma for my 18th birthday. The day before my birthday I took a picture with Santa for the 1st time in my life. On my birthday I went to my dad's for a spell, then my mom took me to Captain D's. The day after my birthday we went to the mall of Memphis and I went ice skating. I found out that ice skating and roller skating are not the same. I can't ice skate, but can roller skate.
99 I dislocated my right knee 2 years in a roll. 1 see above and 2nd I tried to flip off a table to show off my 19th birthday.
100 I use to wake up happy and singing. I'm not much of a morning person anymore. It takes me about an hour to wake up really good. I cook our breakfast with one eye open and don't talk for almost an hour.

Sorry it's took me so long to finish this post and I haven't visited you much, but momma is back down and I'm having to stay with her more, home school, house, and this and that. There is just not enough hours in a day!
Hope to be able to spend more time with you soon!
Take care!

How fun to learn more about you this morning. My older brother died ten years ago, I have one sister and am the youngest. We have #25 in common … and I’m reminded you’ve asked me if I was an English teacher. The answer is no … I taught MANY subjects in elementary school … and was a History major, but I’m an avid reader and had a ‘literature’ minor in college. Yes … it IS hard to come up with 100 things. I spent a week or so generating 15-25 at a time to create my list when I reached my 101st post at Small Reflections. I suspect it’s hard to remain a ‘neat freak’ sharing your domicile with so many kids and dogs. I love quotes for inspiration too and find writing helpful in expressing my views. I’m sorry about the loss of your dad. Mine died in 1976 … shortly before my 31st birthday. Love the Jim Rohn quote you ended with here.
Hugs and blessings,

I don't think 40 is old anymore either. I'll be 39 this December. Ackkk!
