Mine are typical, I guess. After the death of my father- I clearly have a fear of losing those close to me. But especially now that I'm married- I have such a different perspective about what my Mom went through when she lost her husband of 25 years. JC and I are one year deep and I can't even sleep when he's away on business.
And clearly- this whole IF thing has brought up the what happens if it doesn't work fear. I have nothing else to write about this because in Glass Half Full Girl of 2011 mode- this isn't something to fear. It will work.
I have other irrational fears that are more amusing- at least for others. (or so says my husband...)
1. Fear of all my teeth falling out.
So you think this would lead me to brushing my teeth like every 5 seconds- but I don't. I do floss like 3-4 times a day, though. Put your judgement away.
2. Revolving doors.
Terrified that the door will smack me on the back of my heels. Hate them.
3. My cat running away
I think this is legit- he ran away once and his paws will never ever touch the outdoors again. Inside Kitty Only.
After discussing this with JC last night...he thought of another.
4. Having the alarm clock set on any number ending in 0 or 5.
It's true. This gives me serious anxiety for some reason. JC and I have ended up with separate alarm clocks for this very reason. Again- put your judgement away.
But just to out him as well- JC's irrational fears are:
1. Extreme constipation
2. Not being totally prepared for a Zombie apocalypse.

Here they are. My friends. Well some of them. I have lots of different groups of friends. My College Friends (pictured above), High School Friends, Work Friends, JC's Friends (who I have slowly adopted away from him) Oddly- none of them really mix. I don't keep them away from each other on purpose- it just kind of shakes out like that, I guess.
I've been especially lucky to meet really good people at work. Some of them have become some of my best friends. You can check out one of these people here: Up To The Moon and Back.
SO beautiful, but just stupidly expensive.

In no particular order...
1. The Departed
3. Grease 2 (No, not Grease...Grease 2. Trust me- it was WAY better than the first)
4. The Usual Suspects
5. Goonies (Goonies Never Say Die- Mikey is the eternal optimist)
6. Bed of Roses
7. The Notebook (Ok, so I really like the book better, but I just like the story)
So what does this random mix say about me? Hmmmm...

Here he is. My sweet nephew James. I love being an Aunt. It is the best. I'm getting a niece in April and can't wait to meet her too.

My sister and I were both adopted. We could not possibly be any more different. In looks and in personality. When we were younger we never seemed to get along. Never, ever. Like I said- too different. We're just like oil and water. While I love my sister, I also think she may be one of the most selfish people I've ever known. She always thinks of herself first no matter what. And sometimes- that's just not ok.
Now that we're older, I have a much higher tolerance for her- or maybe I've just realized that she'll never change and so I know exactly how to limit my interactions with her. I see her more now that I ever did before, but that is really because of my nephew who I love more than anything.
I go back and read this post and it sounds terrible. I do love her. I'm just not sure that I like her sometimes. Make sense?
PS- THIS IS MY 100th BLOG POST!! YEAH ME!
