    Quite a list of likes and dislikes!

    I dislike the way I put things off! I like smiling and reading books and fun emails and writing, most of the time.

    I like the last day of school before Christmas break, Spring break and Summer break, but I don't like the first day of the new school year. I like the sound of rain on a tin roof, but I don't like the sound of rainwater rushing into the basement! I love a good romance novel, but I don't like having to put it down because it's midnight and I have to go to work in a few hours. I like to travel, but I don't like leaving my DH home alone.
