    Wow you guys all have such interesting lives! I am a big bore. I can't even think of anything. Tammy I am not shocked that you are a genius, I have always thought you were pretty damn smart. (As I think all you girls are). Christa that is awesome that you paid for college! You should never feel embarassed for being a hardworker and putting yourself through college. Plus if I had a body like yours and I could shake my bootie, trust me I would! LOL. Rachelle I think everyone is scared of getting old. It's just a natural part of life. Amy it's understandable that your scared by death in general b/c of all the deaths in your family. That's so terrible that you've had to go through all that. And Melissa there is nothing wrong with not wanting kids. At least you were upfront and told him that your not keen on the idea. And Drea hopefully you'll FI will change his mind.

        I still new to this site, so no one really know alot about me either.

        Something that no one knows about is that I might carry my sister and brother-in-laws child for them, if they can't have another one. I personally don't want to have children of my own and my FI knows this. Luckily he feels the same way that I do. We actually want to adopt, not a baby, like an older kid around (12) and let them have an chance to make a future for themselves.

            Oooh I want to adopt too! Well I would like to have my own children as well but I think it would be nice to adopt. That is so nice that you would do that for your sister. You are such a good sister. Unlike some sisters I know which shall remain nameless. (That one's for you Tammy)

                That's awesome - I think the world needs more people like you and your FI! My sister wants to do something similar - adopt an older child. And she'd like to get older siblings, boys, who would otherwise be split up. It wouldn't be easy - and I admire you for wanting to do this!

                  I just look at it like she's my sister and hopefully she would do the same for me if I ever wanted kids. But she's the only person I could do that for.

                    Thought this could be fun thread to start up again!

                    I am a germaphobe, hate getting my hands dirty, and travel with my own sheets and pillow case.

                    If in a restaurant, I can't think about my food being made, or I would never eat.

                    I can't eat food over 2 days old.

                    I am scared of fire, I have fire extinguishers all over my house.

                    I am terrified of someone taking Liam, strangers are always touching him, it drives me crazy.

                    I hate hugging anyone but my kids, and Everton.

                    When pregnant I was addicted to fabric softner sheets, put them in my pillow cases, they were in all my pockets, and all over my house.

                    I never answer my phone.

                    I taught my children nursery rhymes, but changed all the words, (my kids would argue with teachers that their version was right because mommy says)

                    I hate all things related to pta moms, school concerts, play dates, parks, volunteering in the classroom, and coffee with the moms!

                    Oh I have so much more, but I think have already said too much!!!

                      okay.. I'm super afraid of death.. not me dying but others. I have a huge family but funerals are common and it seems that we attend at least one each year. My mom is one of ten children and there are only three left. Her youndest brother died in his mid-20's. My grandma and another uncle died a year and a day apart. My brother and other uncle died 10-months apart, another two uncles died 2-months apart in 2005. I feel like I'm always on edge on who's next. Recently, my mother told me she was told that she needed a f/u to because the results from her mamogram indicated that they saw a "spot" So I am freaking out, but trying to remain calm at the same time.
                      Oooh, me too! I'm always afraid whenever Martin leaves the house that he will get into a horrible freakish accident (seriously, the thoughts that go on in my head are nuts!). I think the same thing about my Dad. And of course I'm worried about my Grandparents who helped raise me but they are getting older so I think that's more of a natural fear.

                      Also, I am very scared of driving and try to get out of it whenever I can! When I am in a car I am usually envisioning a really bad crash, which is horrible since I am reading this book on how we create our own reality. I don't want to think these thoughts, but it's like I can't help it! Oh yeah, and I am afraid of going down stairs - I think I'm gonna fall. Basically I over think almost everything and worry way too much.

                      A lot of this comes from my childhood - my Mom was always super freaked out about things because she did a lot of drugs and was paranoid/schizophrenic due to this (she was abused as a child by her grandparents and parents). Like one time I remember it was 4th of July - she had just come home from Hawaii where she took off to when I was about 5. I was at home w/ her and her weird boyfriend who used to eat dog biscuits (?!?). Anyways, she became convinced that people were after her and told me that they were coming for us. Since it was 4th of July there were firecrackers going off everywhere, which she said were gun shots. I remember laying flat as I could in her bed with her all night (there was a window right above it and I was scared that I would get shot if I sat up). When I woke up she was gone. I called my Dad who came and got me and took me to school, and then went looking for her. The police finally found her - she had broken into a church and was talking to the voices around her.

                      My mom finally passed away when I was 17 from Cirrhosis of the liver. Most ppl don't understand, but it was actually a big relief.

                      P.S. Man, sorry my drama stories really end up coming out on here!! I'll have to think of some good stories - LOL
