100th Blog-100 Things

1. I was never kidded for having the last name Funk while growing up. I was mocked because my middle name was Dawn. Dawnald Duck was heard a lot.

2. I am a procrastinator which does not go well with my OCD.

3. I cannot go to bed on a Friday night until I watch What Not To Wear. It doesn't matter if it's 1 a.m.

4. I live across the street from the house that I grew up in.

5. My mom, her mom, and four of my grandma's sisters have had breast cancer and I'm still not doing self exams.

7. I realized today that because of the half marathon training I will not be able to sleep in until January 24th.

8. My dad has always been a healthy eater so I didn't have a carbonated beverage until I was a freshman in high school.

9. I never read books that have any substance to them at all. I want to be entertained. Erma Bombeck is my favorite author.

16. William Shakespeare was born on my birthday, too! :)

21. Our dog Jackie 'O' is our fifth dog. She's stayed longer then any of the rest.

49. I spent two years at a different middle school and was so miserable I tried to kill myself.

Lots of really interesting things about you. I'm still back at not registered to vote! Way to go on 100 things. I couldn't do it!

WOW, that was very interesting and learned some new things about you I didn't know about ?!?!?! I am with you about, will we continue to run after the marathon! I think we will, at least a few miles anyway!!

New to your blog...not even sure how I ended up here, but I love that your Daughters are all named after presidents! We have a Reagan & are hoping for a "Kennedy" or a "Jackson" someday! My poor oldest son is left out, though... (Nathan)

Hey there! I just found your blog and am getting a kick out of your 100 things. I was just wondering, though, about the voting thing. Any reason why you'll never vote? Just curious...
