tagged for a meme

I forgot that I was tagged by Abel a while back, but I finally remembered, so here are my enlightening answers to this meme:

Three things that scare me:
• Public speaking
• Losing the people I love
• A murderer breaking into my house and killing me (or even worse)

Three people who make me laugh:
• Other family members
Kristin Chenoweth

Three things I love:
• Cuddling w/ my husband
• Spending time w/ family
• Accomplishing goals

Three things I hate:
• Cooking (I’m finally going to admit defeat here – I really don’t like it.)
• Being told what to do
• Yelling

Three things I don’t understand:
• Why people love reality tv
• Why we are all obsessed with celebrities (I include myself in this)
• How I have collected so much junk over the years

Three things on my desk:
• Pictures of family
• Miniature rock garden
• Dead plant – I seem to kill them all

Three things I’m doing right now:
• Racing against time on a work project
• Decluttering the crap out of my house (not this very minute)
• Wishing I had gotten more sleep last night

Three things I want to do before I die:
• Have children
• Write and publish a young adult novel
• Learn to play the mandolin

Three things I can do:
• Bake bread
• Run (or jog, more precisely) a 5k
• Chinese calligraphy

Three things I can’t do:
• Knit (I’ve tried)
• Fly (I dream I can, but when I wake up, I actually can’t)
• Go very long without crying.

Three things (or people) I think you should listen to:
• Your conscience
Ray LaMontagne
Andrew Bird

Three things (or people) you should never listen to:
• Your inner critic
• Negative influences in your life
• Ashlee Simpson

Three things I’d like to learn:
• To play the guitar well
• To be a better wife
• To paint

Three favorite foods:
• Mediteranean food
• Mexican food
• Corn Chex (I can’t stop eating them. And we actually have an off brand.)

Three shows I watched as a kid:
• Smurfs
• ABC Weekend Specials (with O.G. Readmore. Remember him?)
• Disney Sunday night movies

Three things I regret:
• Having a boyfriend in high school. I should have just enjoyed my friends.
• The times I didn’t listen to my heart and listened to my fears instead.
• The things I’ve done to hurt family and friends. But as my dear husband said, how else do we learn?

Three people I tag:
• Anyone else who actually reads this blog and wants to share…(if you do put this in your blog, link to it in my comments, so that I can find your blog and read your thoughts)
