50 things about me

I got this idea from blog I've been frequenting lately and I thought it would be a great way to share things about me.  For the record, I'm starting this at 8:43 pm on November 28.   We'll see how long this takes.

21. No, my tubes aren't tied. 
22. I don't know if I want more kids.

24. I still want go live on a farm.
