I admit I didn't read the whole list, but I'm with you on nail polish, hot weather, Reeses, birds, and flour tortillas. I didn't text until this week - my kids have talked me into it. I am different in that I hate uncooked tomatoes, even the smell, and I don't handle them if I can help it. We do have two tomato plants, though, because my kids like them.

I need to know how you have gone without a dishwasher for the past years! Who does your dishes? That is amazing. I hate ironing too. My middle name is Lynn and I am 5'3" and we have the same first name.
This was fun to read.
