100 Things About Me…

I was reading a post by a blogging friend, Darcy at Just a Night Owl (I knew we would be friends… she has chickens too) and she listed “100 Things about Me”. As I read it, I realized how much it helped me get to know Darcy so I thought I might try to write one too. She mentioned several times throughout her post that it was not easy, so I was not sure I was going to write one. Until another dear friend and co-owner of Hip Homeschool Moms, Wendy wrote one on her Blog, so the challenge is on! So…. here goes my attempt at 100 things about me…
