    blow your nose is my motto especially during the winter. Can i say one thing that DOESN'T attract me to my other half: He says "blow your nose" to our son during lunch.
    Great list. Happy Monday, have a nice week xxxx

    MomyBlogR;
    Crap is just a good word.

    Michelle;
    Both great in different ways!

    Madelyn;
    I just watched the Constant Gardener this weekend; wonderful!

    Chloe;
    During lunch?! No no no...
    Happy Monday to you and I hope your week is good too, when are you getting your computer back?

    Alysa;
    I hope all is well with you this week and you are wonderful to offer; you would be a compassionate and hard working person, I know!

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    Your other half sounds like a winner. :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Heidi;
    I do :)
    (although the tag did not ask for seven annoying things about him :)

  1. Blogger Anne said:

    I love Toni Morrison too. I am liking your blog, I just got tagged with the seven things meme as well.
    :)

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    You have an enviromental foundation? I'd love to hear more about that.

    We have many items in common, including an inability to make fudge. It's a complex scientific process, you know!

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    i don't know Cathy! I'm going crazy. But really crazy this time. Not, cute crazy. Crazy axe murderer.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Anne;
    I visited you blog but didn't comment yet; will be back adn thanks for coming by!

    Stephanie;
    I will e-mail you.

    Chloe;
    Oh no; I was worried you were not cute crazy. I e-mailed you....

  1. Blogger vani said:

    i have to read little women, and yes johnny depp all the way! :)

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    Wonderful plans for the future - I really hope you can do all of that :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Vani;
    Even better; get a children's version and then share it with your girls!

  1. Blogger Connie and Rob said:

    Loved your list.

    You know I used to be able to ride roller coasters and all sorts of other rides. One day about ten years ago I got off one of those things and said never again. My husband has to grab kids to go with him now.

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    Great lists! :)

    The English Patient is one of my favourite films. I'll never tire of the opening scene as they fly over the desert... Beautiful!

  1. Blogger angel, jr. said:

    I like these surveys. It teaches us about one another.

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Great list, Cathy. Hope you are doing well. Didn't get a chance to post any comments yesterday, you sounded a bit down. Take care, Meow

  1. Blogger DayByDay4-2Day said:

    Thank you for not tagging me I still have one to do. possibly tomorrow or the next or the next....

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Devil Mood;
    Probably not, but a girl can dream, and I say dream big! :)

    Connie;
    They make me sick. The last one I went on my fingers were holding the bar so tighly that the attendant had to physically unfurl them and pull me off. Shear terror!

    Stephanie;
    That scene is one of the best in all the movies I've ever seen.

    Angel;
    Read and learn...:)

    Meow;
    Not so much down; just stressed by overwhelming amounts of work.

    DayByDay;
    No problem; no added stress needed!

  1. Blogger Neo said:
