We have 52 and 53 in common, among several others. Though I must say I highly recommend LASIK! Got it when I worked at Suson Eye Specialists.

Congratulations on 200 blog posts...I have enjoyed reading along! But I really love the 100 things about you...can I say that I really agree with number 31 and have figured out a way to order groceries online and have them delivered! Gotta love the internet! My goal in life is to never step foot in a grocery store again!
