    I love reading these types of posts, even from people I don’t know! So…
    1. Apparently, we live about a mile from each other (according to the address on your site). I’ve probably driven down your street dozens of times because the neighborhood has a ton of garage sales.
    2. Cats. Sorry, but having a dog seems like having a toddler for 12 or so years.
    3. I’m afflicted with misophonia (sp?) and left-right confusion.
    4. In my 40+ years, I’ve always lived in a town with the words Grand or Rapids in it. Also, only two of those years were on an East-West running street. Minus the three month study abroad program, I have no clue what direction I was facing but they did say Grand a lot!
    5. I haven’t seen the classic Christmas movies. I’ve seen parts of the one with the tongue on the pole and the leg lamp, but not all the way through. Cartoon or animated ones though, I think I’ve seen them all.
    6. I have over 800 jigsaw puzzles.

  2. Here’s one: the first 21 years of my life I spent living on HWY 11 in VA – even when I was in college over 200 miles away from home. Then for the next 3 yrs I was less than 3 miles off that road, now 120 miles in the opposite direction. I skipped a little over a year, then taught at a school right off HWY 11 in Slidell, LA.
