My Life in Numbers
By MarthaMerrill on November 24, 2012
Anne Woodman from Writing by the Numbers always starts off her posts with a nod to the numerals that bear importance to her life and her work. I can never write anything number related without first thinking of Anne.
This morning I received an email update from Christine at Love, Life, Surf, who had followed another blogger's lead (Grteta from GFunctified) and created a list of numbers, which organized some of her life's data.
It's fun to play with numbers, and in honor of my blogging buddies, I thought I'd give it a go.
If my daughters were a part of this discussion they would accuse me of being a copy-cat, and in that they'd be correct.
Imitation, though, is the sincerest form of flattery.
1971 was the year I was born.
13 is my favorite number.
7 is a pretty good number too, especially when a slash is drawn through the center.
3 is how many times a year I get my hair cut.
1 is the number of marathons I've completed.
2 marathons will be run before I die.
1 piece of jewelry is enough (I feel like a peacock when I accessorize more).
04043 is Kennebunk's zip code.
155 is my perfect weight.
14 is how old I was when my dad died.
7 is (at last count) my number of siblings.
39 is how old I was when my birth sister found me.
55 feels awfully fast on the freeway.
2 boyfriends were serious husband contenders, had the timing been better.
63 degrees is the perfect temperature at any time of year.
3 is the number of times I do dishes everyday.
0 is how much I love doing dishes.
1985 was the year I first kissed a boy (for real).
36 plus DD is a number that needs to be contained.
206 posts have been published on this blog.
8 is close the number of hours I get to sleep at night.
12 hours of sleep would be better.
5 is the age of my twins, who are responsible for not allowing me more sleep.
2 dead yoga mats are kept in my living room for use with exercise videos where sneakers are needed (don't all dead yoga mats go the sneaker route?).
5 products must to be used on my face in the morning to make me look alive.
780 lovely people follow me on Twitter.
4 last names would follow Martha if I decided to use them all (Osmundson Feldman Merrill Wills).
1 more baby in my home would make me really happy.
1 little dog will have to do.
What is your favorite number? How much do you love dishes? What do you do with dead yoga mats?
