A good blog friend posted this idea and I liked it so much I decided to copy it.
I think we all like numbers for different reasons. When you think about it, numbers represent many things in our lives: lists, ages, birthdays, kids, finances…the list goes on.
My life (so far) in numbers:
- The number of houses I lived in during childhood.
- The number of times I have been married.
- The number of houses I’ve owned (or co owned).
- The number marathons I have completed.
- The number of states I have lived in.
- The number of instruments I’ve learned how to play fairly proficiently.
- And, as luck would have it, the number of children we are currently expecting.
- Apparently 2 is a significant number.
22 is the age I was when I first got married.
27 is the age I was divorced
4 (hours) is my ultimate marathon finishing goal
17 is the number of race medals and trophys I’ve collected
13 was when I got my first pair of glasses
23 is my favorite number
843 is my area code
28 is the age I finally, officially got over my body image issues
6 pairs of jeans regularly lie in my dresser drawer
3-4 is the number of times my house should be vacuumed each week, thanks to dog hair
2 is the number of times it realistically happens
10 is the time I am usually in bed
7 is about the latest I can sleep in, regardless of when I went to bed
25 minutes is the length of my daily commute
82k is the number of miles on my not quite four year old car (sheesh)
5 is the number of years I’ve been a Speech Therapist
In that time I’ve had 3 jobs…my current job the one I’ve been employed with the longest
26 is the age that I got my first tattoo
29 (nearly 30) when I got my 2nd
31 is when I’ll likely get my 3rd, and probably final, added to my 2nd
1,500 is about the number of text messages sent and received on my phone each month
Nearly 1000 days before our first positive pregnancy test
0 is the number of people that I would like to see suffer from infertility
But at this point, wouldn’t change the story.
