Loved your list! I love how you want to tour manufacturing facilities (Forrest gets to do that a lot. Maybe he can take you sometime :-). And you get to go look at houses! How fun!!

Patrick said...

I'm interested in the driving record from 15-20 years of age. Let's have some more details on this. Seriously, is Winslow's lack of trees due to you running them all down in your car?

Marianne said...

That is too funny that you listed your driving record! For some reason that came up in conversation I think last night--Patrick wanted more details but I couldn't remember! I told him I didn't think I had been w/ you for any of the infamous accidents and I told him I don't think any of the wrecks were with other vehicles (I could be wrong)! Too funny! As for the list--that will take some time but I'll do it!

Laurie said...

This is a fun list. I'll have to make one. I totally loved Cosby Show and Facts of Life. In the last couple weeks Clayton has discovered Transformers. He walks around singing "More than meets the eye!" I have heard the upcoming movie is really violent, so I'm not even going to mention it.

Good luck with house selling and finding the van. Some major decisions. I know it's hard to keep the house clean under those circumstances! It's hard work!

Speadsheets? Spreadsheets? Really? I guess it could be worse, Yesterday, a guy told me that he needed to find out about a company, and I asked if he Googled him, and he said that he did not know how to google.


Amy said...

Great list, Andi! I love that the only things on your desk are things that are supposed to be there - and you're worried about keeping your house clean. (-:

Shelley said...

Ok, I filled out my lists. You can see them on my blog at

Grandma and Lauren said...

Grandma and Lauren loved your lists - I especially liked sticking your hand down the garbage disposal scaring you - that always scared me too - that and thinking I was going to accidentally put my hand in the electric mixer while it was mixing. I should have enough self control but it still scared me.

Isn't it weird to see a "For Sale Sign" in front of your own home?

Lauren's excited you're going to get a bigger house.

GREAT list! I may just have to steal it and do my own on my blog...:)
