79. Marriage is still a little scary to me.
80. I love garlic bread.

Hehehehe. Garlic bread might definitely be better than marriage. I kid, I kid. Maybe.

I LOVVVVE sleeping by myself too!
I'm glad that I'm not the only "weirdo." haha
Actually Ric likes it also, thankfully. We slept on separate beds when we were in Niagara (since we had the opportunity to do that with two queen beds in our hotel room). :) It was LOVELY!

When I was growing up, I can remember that my Dad's parents had twin beds separated in their room, they slept on separate beds too. Though I think that may have been common back then. . .though I don't know.

WHEN we get a house, I wonder if H would be opposed to buying another queen bed and mattress and we can have our own beds. ha (JUST kidding.. ..)

Definately scared of marriage...ohhhh, thats right, Im already married....huh?!? The scariest thing for me is one of my babies dying too! I DON'T clean my trash can 4 times a week but about 3 times...hmmmm, we are alot alike!
