31.  When I am with my family I am the happiest I can be
32.  I don't think I have slept through the night more then 5 times in the past 5 years
33.  I have been to Russia, I never want to go back
34.  Even though I like to share things on this blog with others I find it is a great way for me to document my here and now for me, I like that.

Wow, that wasn't as hard to do as I thought.

This is a VERY great list- I am glad you made it- a little self reflection on a birthday is the best way to celebrate. So many of the things I can relate to you EXCEPT "wanted to be needed" that is something I HATE!
Love you and think you are wonderful and I am glad to know you.
