Thanks for the list. I love learning quirky things about people! You make dinner at 10am??? That is amazing...I'm lucky if it's started by 4pm!

I did not like you being married the first three years...however, we did form the best friendship even then! She does make dinner at 10am...drives me crazy! And thank you for telling me about how toys with batteries can "break" and not be fixed!

Why are you a closet GNR fan - theres nothing wrong with liking a little Axl Rose and Slash and some Paradis City.

Jen,
Just catching up on what is up with you - I wondered about the baby news! So exciting. I have the whole summer to get through and it is starting to get HOT! OK, so your list was fun. . . I felt like I was reliving some of my HS years between the Sable, County Seat(are they still around?), and 80's movies I could just picture you with big bangs and wearing a peach Outback Red sweater! Plus, how did we stay friends if lateness is one of your pet peeves? Maybe by the time your kids are old enough to care, there will be a instant photo book copier or something that you can just copy Caroline's scrapbook and change it a little bit for your other kids. We all know how those "middle children" and "babies" of the family complain that there are no pictures of them!!!!!!!!!! But, I wouldn't know because I'm the oldest too. Hope all keeps going well for you!
-Jen Taylor
