Three Things...

As you know, I dilligently read too many blogs and I found this one here.

Three Things That Scare Me:

1. The idea that I will never again be successful.
2. Cancer. There is such a huge history of it in my family.
3. The eye thing. Things are good right now (but don't ask me how many pairs of reading glasses I own, okay? I can't leave home without them), but you just never know. I appreciate what I have and I hope it lasts a long time.

Three People Who Make Me Laugh:
1. The Khan when he's in a good mood.
2. The Senator
3. Sarge

Three Things I Love:
1. Roses
2. Tulips, Daffodils, Hyacinth and the other bulb flowers that tell me it is spring when they finally show up!
3. Throwing a GREAT dinner party.

Three Things I Hate:
1. The real estate market. (No one, and I do mean NO ONE, has looked at our house in seven weeks).
2. The fact that people donate millions of dollars to politicians rather than to organizations that really WILL make a difference. What would the Red Cross do with that $26Million, Hillary? A lot more good than you ever will. And imagine if Barack Obama and Mitt Romney's money had gone to the American Cancer Society instead?
3. Politicians in general.

Three Things I Don’t Understand:
1. Calculus
2. Narrow-mindedness
3. Quantum physics

2. Finishing a lukewarm cup of coffee.
3. Working up the first real entry in Keyboard Therapy.

Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die:
1. Have a really great, rewarding career.
2. Visit Italy.
3. Bring home a sister for the boys.

Three Things I Can Do:

3. Sew - it doesn't say "Things I can do well!"
