My List - times 4 plus 3

Yes, I am lazy.  I decided to copy my sidebar list about myself from my old blog for my list of 7 things about myself.  It's more than 7 but it's cut and paste so bite me.  I had to amend my sober time.

My Mary made mention in her comments yesterday about writing a poem for her and it made me laugh.  I used to have this thing on my first Sobriety is Exhausting blog that stated I would write a poem for  anyone who gave me an award.  They were good poems "thank you Mary, your legs are never hairy." Good stuff like that. is my list - LOL it's 39 things-the re-run.

Well, you didn't acquire any more secrets since the last time you wrote this. My "carry to the grave secrets" are all from before I was 30 years old.

Annette said...

Oh Pam...thanks. You gave me some ideas for my list of 7 things. Thanks! I am NOT an over achiever. :o)

I very much enjoyed reading your list and also find you very interesting!

Syd said...

Lots of cars, including Elvis' cadillac! That is way cool. I have no secrets because I got rid of them on my 5th step. I am grateful for that.
Great list, Pammie.

Cindy said...

I love this list! How very interesting a life you have lived to date! Wonderful.

Cindy said...

Oh! And I have 3 things in common with you out of ALL of that. I've lost a baby (stillborn) between my first and third born, his name was Zachary. I am a mother to an alcoholic, and am a loving wife to a great guy.

I'm so intrigued by the Elvis' Cadillac part.

Mary LA said...

What an amazing list! Some of these I know from your story. But you know Pam, nothing you say or do surprises me because you are one of a kind!
