My list... Did I miss the momentum?

November 19th, 2006 at 10:49 pm

Ok, I know, I'm a little late for that. I have been thinking about what I would put in that list for the past few days. I haven't been able to come up with that many, but here it is:

1. I'm an only child. Grew up in a village in the Eastern part of France. Population: 500.

2. I went to elementary school where there were about 25 kids (K through 5). The school is still there today and 32 kids were signed up at the beginning of this school year.

3. I got into a car accident when I was 16. I still carry the scars on my forehead, and hands. My husband tells me he can't see them, but I know they're there.

4. I had a piece of glass in my forehead for about a year after that accident that was eventually removed. It caused me my worst headaches.

5. As another result of this accident, I had a nose job at 19. I don't like to shout that out. I feel like people perceive me as shallow if I mention it. Then I feel obligated to explain why. So I don't bring it up.

6. I was born in Switzerland, but I am French.

7. My husband is 15 years older than I am. It doesn't bother me, but doesn't sit too well with mummy dearest. After being together for 6 years, living together for 5 and being married for 1 year, you'd think she got over it a little.

8. I have a Master's degree.

9. I love computer and technology in general.

10. I don't trust people very easily.

11. Both the cars I have (one is in France, the other one is here) are VW. I just love these cars.

12. My husband is the bad one with finances, I'm the good one. I've been trying to make him change some of his bad spending habits, and to my delight, he HAS changed (some) of them. He still has a little bit to go, but I'm very proud.

13. I was always the quiet one (still am). I never participated in anything in junior high, high school or college because I was shy. Which I regret because...

14. ... I'm very curious and want to learn everything about everything. When we bought our comforter about a year ago, I researched for weeks the different kind of comforter, learnt all the terms. It took forever and drove my husband crazy. But we got a great comforter.

15. I once completely ripped out both someone else's front bumper and mine getting out of parking lot with my car because I had a little bit too much too drink. I know it shouldn't be funny and I should have never been drinking and driving but it was hilarious then, and still is the funniest thing to me. You should have seen my friends faces when I arrived at the house we were meeting at: "Where is your front bumper??", and me pulling it out of back seat.

16. I worked at Six Flags Magic Mountain for 3 months in the summer of 1999.

17. And got a tattoo while walking on Venice beach one afternoon I had off.

18. My grandpa is from Corsica, a tiny island off the south coast of France. I've only been there once, and wish to go back some day. He was a veteran in the French Army, and went to WWII.

19. Talking about veterans, my husband is also a veteran. He went to the Gulf War (the first one) and was stationed in Saudi Arabia for 9 months (I think)... and I was only 11 (Oh! he hates when I remind him) Smile

20. I was lucky to have a mother who took me to every part of the world when I was younger. She took me to Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, The Maldives, Saint Lucia. Too bad I was too young to appreciate it to the fullest.
I also grew up few hours from the Italian border, and never bothered to go there!! Go figure

Hey, I've made it to 20. Never though it would happen. Hope you enjoy as much as I've enjoyed all of your lists!

    Very interesting list!!

    Really, age is only a number once you reach 18. My DH is 7 years younger than me...and we have a lot of fun together!!

    Your travels sound wonderful. Ive never been out of the US...and havent seen a whole lot of it either!

    Thanks for sharing!

    7#. My DH is 14 years older than me. Mummy's will complain about anything. Remember that her mummy (grandmummy) complained about daddy. As long as you and DH are a team, it shouldn't matter.

    13#. It'll probably change as you get older. I've gotten so that I don't care what other people think. Remember that they more than likely don't! Smile

    My father is 15 years older than my mother too - and I have never seen a happier couple Smile

    Age is just.....well...meaningless. It is a measurement of trips around the sun! My DW is 3 years older than me. I tease her and call her a cradle robber. At the end of the day it just does not matter much though!

    Your list is pretty cool! Oh! By the way I sent you a PM about that photo electric light device for the laundry room!Smile

    Haha. I can understand about #14. I do the same it used to drive my ex crazy. Big Grin

    As for #13, yes, you can more than catch up now! Wink

    Yes, you do have a very interesting list.

    i love french food! i worked at a french company for 3 years before this one, the french accent is cute . . .

    My husband's cousin is 23 and married to a man who is 58, just 3 years younger than her father. You can imagine how that went over. He is a very nice, intelligent man, but they both lied about his age in the beginning, which I think caused the most problems. They have been married for 2 years now and it seems to be working out. Still with that many years between them I do worry. She wants kids and he may not be alive to raise them all the way up.

    15 years or less seems much more normal to me!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! I am not bothered by the age difference. As I said, my mother has a hard time... Smile
